Recommended Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control for a 7,400 lbs Trailer  


2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3L Trailer GVRW 7400 Estimated hitch weight 750 hitch+truck bed Looking for a weight distribution and sway control hitch. Can you advise?


Expert Reply:

For a trailer with a 7,400 lbs gross towing weight, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control item # BXW1006. Tongue weight is typically 10% - 15% of your trailer's total weight. This system has a tongue weight range of 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs which will be perfect for your trailer.

The SwayPro has built in sway control that uses trunnion bars to keep your trailer in line with your truck. This system includes a 2" shank that has up to a 13" rise and a 7" drop.

I have linked a review video below.

I also recommend the Classic Accessories Tow Bar and Weight Distribution Tote item # CA80113. This heavy duty bag is perfect for storing your weight distributing hitch. It is 36" x 11" Wide x 8" Tall and has padding that prevents damage to your hitch and prevents dings to your vehicle's cargo area from shifting gear.
