Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.


Unique Features of Blue Ox SwayPro

Blue Ox SwayPro Spring Bars

Unlike other weight distribution systems, the SwayPro has automatically locking brackets throughout. Both spring bars insert, slotted side up, into the head assembly and then lock securely in place. Removal is just as easy - simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out.


Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.


Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.


Built-In Tension Stops Sway

Blue Ox SwayPro System with Built-In Sway Control Hooked Up

The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox Weight Distribution BXW1000 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number BXW1000, this is the Blue Ox Sway Pro weight distribution system. This unit's going to help evenly distribute the weight over the axis of the tow vehicle and the trailer for stability and control. Ultimately, a system like this is going to help create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. This unit is very unique. It has built-in sway control, and that's going to help prevent trailer sway as you travel down the road and experience those different types of conditions. The unit's going to apply constant tension in the trunnions, which is going to help force and keep the trailer in line. We're going to have the rotating lift brackets.

These are going to ensure that the chains are tight and secure to keep the spring bars from moving. These are going to be trunnion-style spring bars. These will flex appropriately for controlled, even ride. They automatically lock in place and can easily be removed. Here in the head assembly you have tab right here.

If you lift up on that, the bar can be removed from the head assembly. It's a really nice, simple design, and it can easily be installed just by pushing it back into place until that pin engages the bar. One of the neat things I like about this system is that there's only one pin and clip that you have to worry about. That's going to be the pin and clip to secure the adjustable shank into the hitch of the vehicle. Everything else on the system is going to be pin and clip free. It's all going to feature self-locking devices that are going to function throughout the system.

Again, the only one you're going to need is the one that's included for your hitch and to secure the adjustable shank inside your hitch. The unit is designed for two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with rate distribution systems. Here on the head assembly, we're going to have two grease zerks, located at the back of the area where the bars go into place, so if you ever need a maintenance that, just remove your bars and then you can swivel this to gain easier access to those zerk fittings. You're going to have one on this side and one this side. It allows for easy, simple, clean maintenance. Another unique thing to this system is that we're going to have the unique rotating latch lift brackets.

These are what connects the spring bars to the trailer. Very quick and simple to use. Simply just insert the lift chains into the slot, and then you rotate the bracket with the included wrench that's right there. Nice design, the wrench is large, solid steel, it's got a grip on it. It allows you to gain the leverage that you need to get everything in place, and also it keeps you a safe distance away from moving components. Clamp-on design, you don't have to worry about drilling. It's got the clamp-on brackets back here. These are going to take up about five inches along the trailer frame, and they're designed to fit trailer-frame widths no wider than 2 and 1/2 inches. When it comes to tilting the head assembly, you don't have to worry about that. The required tilt is built in to the head assembly, so no need for adjustments. Everything is going to be a steel construction, it's all powder coated for strength and durability. It's going to last a long time, and you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion with this system. This area here is going to be where your hitch ball installs. It is set up right now to receive an inch and a quarter diameter shank on the hitch ball, or you can use the included reducer sleeve, which goes in that area there and reduces the opening from 1 inch and 1/4 to 1 inch. This product is made right here in the USA, it's going to come with all the necessary hardware to get this installed. The tongue weight rating is 750 pounds to 1000 pounds with a gross towing weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. Again, it's for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Your left brackets are going to be positioned about 29 inches back on the trailer frame from the center of the hitch ball. Real quick, I just want to show you the adjustable shank right here. You're larger hardware is going to be what attaches the head assembly to the actual shank, but I didn't install that because I wanted you to get a good look at the shank. Solid steel, same finish as your weight distribution systems, so it's going to really blend together well. Now if we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin, holding the front face of the adjustable shank, we're looking at a measurement of 10 inches. It's going to feature a 7 hole design, these are going to be separated on center apart from one another by an inch and a quarter. So one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and center on center, they're going to be separated by an inch and a quarter. The total height adjustment along the shank is going to be 13 inches, so you're going to have a maximum rise of 10 and 3/4 of an inch with this system, and then the drop is going to be zero. There is no drop with this system, but you do have that 10 and 3/4 inch rise. This can be positioned in the hitch, either in the drop or rise position to best fit your particular application. Blue Ox is also going to cover this unit with a limited lifetime warranty. It's going to come with detailed instructions, walking you through the installation process step-by-step, and as the owner, it's going to give you some helpful maintenance tips and owner responsibilities that you need to be made aware of. That's going to do it for today's look at part number BXW1000.

I have been installing the hitch and the 26000 lb 2&5/16" ball that I ordered. All went well until I tried to install the ball which has a 1& 7/8" nut which requires a socket to tighten the nut in the hitch enclosure. Not having that size socket I could not find one that size in the local retail stores. I have resorted to buying an Altrade socket on line from Home Depot for $14. Hopefully it will fit in side the hitch nut enclosure. 145514

The hitch was delivered in just a few days, earlier than expected. The hitch was exactly as described. The dealership attached the hitch to our Keystone Outback 298RE and Excursion without any problem. Our trip from Ohio to Colorado went without incident even though we traveled through wind, rain and snow. Hooking up the trailer with the SwayPro was no problem and very easy to use. 68467

Just took out of the box and hooked it all up. Took less than an hour to get everything out of the box and hooked up to my 36' TT. Quality looks really impressive. I know what quality looks like as my family business owns a high end sheet metal and fabrication shop. This is something if we made it would look like. I had my engineer look at it and he was impressed ! I hope this hitch, for the money, is worth it. I will write another review after the 4th of July when I haul it down the road and put it through testing. 206620

So far the product works as advertised and was fairly east to install. It is far easier than other systems that we have had to hitch and unhitch. There seems to be little to no sway while trailering our 35' TT. As always etrailer was fantastic and delivered exactly as promised faster than expected. I will continue to use etrailer in the future. The only suggestion that I have for this product is that the tool for locking the chains up would be even better if the handle was rubber dipped. 62103

Ordered the Blue Ox BXW1000. The ordering process was easy and the item shipped right away. I received it very quickly and shipping was FREE! A good thing when your order weighs almost 100 pounds. Installation was straight forward. I have not had a chance to tow with the new hitch, but I am looking forward to not hearing all the pops and snaps I heard with the old Husky. I also am looking forward to better sway control. Thanks etrailer! 226321

This product does what it says it will do. My trailer was rock solid on the highway with heavy semi traffic all around me. The engaging of the trunnion bars is easy to adjust and engage. Even the installer said when I picked my trailer that installation and set up was much easier than others that he had dealt with. Pricier than most but for the performance and safety factor, well worth the investment. 176524

William,The system you received is correct. Blue Ox has updated their weight distribution system and removed the thumb screw to help simplify the install and set up. Blue Ox has found that the tilt built in to the system is sufficient for the WD system. Well be updating the photos as soon as their available.

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


Finally got around to installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro hitch with bolt on chain latches. The process was straight forward after viewing youtube vids, taking time to be sure all my measurements were correct. With the bolt on chain latches you do not get many chances to get it right. I could not use clamp on as my V-nose RV did not have room above the frame to clear the clamp on latch.. drilling was a pain as clearances on my frame were tight and I had to go around a electrical junction box on the inside of the frame.. but once on, it was a breeze to set up. The overall quality of the hitch was great and I don't miss having to set the angle of the hitch head (it's fixed) making the only adjustments necessary was hitch height and chain length. I initially set mine up using 9 links on the chain, but once I got out on the road, I noted the RV was riding nose low so I went up to 10 links on the chain. Now the truck and RV are level, the truck rides and handles as I expected. I have not had the rig out on a long haul, so I can't comment about the sway control of the hitch.Truck is a 2013 Ford F150 ecoboost, max tow 3.73 gears, rv is a 6600lb (empty) V-nose 25ft toy hauler. I like the chain latch set up. Easy to use especially on a V-nose trailer. The concept of sway control with the short length chain is feasible and after this week trip (with some interstate time), I will report back if it doesn't work as advertised. All in all I am happy with the hitch and of course happy with the eTrailer purchasing process. 102170


Comments

A year later and we have used this hitch many, many times and couldnt be happier with the purschase. Hook up is a breeze. Have had the chance on several occasions to get on the Interstate with the big trucks and wind and the sway control works. I am very pleased with the hitch. Thanks Blue Ox and eTrailer!

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


I replaced a broken old Eaz-lift hitch with this one on a 10k cargo trailer. The difference in ride quality is night and day. Well worth the step up in price. I feel like I'm driving a Cadillac compared to before. Set-up was easy, instructions were clear and concise. I greatly enjoyed not having to set the angle as it is built in. (Less to adjust, less that can go wrong/break). I do a lot of backing up at sharp angles as I use my trailer for food deliveries in tight spaces behind small restaurants/stores. I've not had any issues with this hitch while doing so. My load weights also vary greatly from beginning to end of day (full vs. empty). It is as smooth empty as it is full. The bars have a broad tongue weight rating range which works great for my application! I've not had it long enough to comment on long-term durability, but it is built tough and engineered smart. I expect it to last as long as I do. You get what you pay for. Great product! 172406

This weight distribution system is the best. It is easy to install and if you need to put it on a different trailer that has a different weight you just have to buy new distribution bars. 78458

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


I contacted Blue Ox before ordering this setup. Gave them all the weight specs on my Tow vehicle and trailer. They recommended this weight range setup. Installation was clearly explained within the instructions included. Unfortunately I could not get the hitch to transfer any weight to the front of the truck nor could I get the truck to level out after connecting to the trailer, even after applying maximum preload to the spring bars. Leveling the trailer was simple, but weight transfer was not possible. I've requested an RMA to return this setup to Etrailer. I reinstalled my original Equalizer hitch setup that worked fine just noisy when making tight turns. I thought the Blue Ox would be an improvement. 204314

I have been using the Blue Ox SwayPro WD Hitch for 1,500 tongue weight on our 30' Arctic Fox travel trailer for one year now. No regrets as this hitch has been an easy to setup and use and it seems to do it's job nicely. Due to the height of our trailer's hitch I ordered a Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank to use with the SwayPro and the pair work great together. 135639

The etrailer.com support before and after that sale was the BEST! Hard to believe how GREAT these people are!!!! The videos made installation easy. I am amazed how well built and HEAVY the Blue Ox is. I had to adjust the hitch height a few times, but now that it is done, I have NO problem quickly setting up the Sway Pro. It seem to perform well with pulling my Airstream and I consider the Blue OX well worth the money for the extra control and safety it provides. 226322

Excellent company and product. After dealing with in my opinion less than professional dealership sending me on the road with a hitch setup at half the weight capabilities of what was required I was very pleased at the service and speed of delivery of this product. The installation of the hitch was simple and i quickly installed the hitch at about $200 savings from a supposed rock bottom price of the dealer.

Blue Ox hitch was relatively easy to install and set up. Haven't had a chance to get on the road with it but from another I know it should do just fine. Customer Service was great. They got me all the things I wanted but didn't find on the website. Hitch arrived in less than a week. Jena checked with me a couple of times to make sure I was satisfied and ask if I had any questions. 193595

The hitch was delivered today. Everything arrived in good condition and I was pleasantly surprised that the hitch has a 2 1/2" shank. The hitch seems to be very well made. The welds are nice and the finish (powder coat?) looks great. I'm looking forward to getting this mounted and taking the trailer out for a trip. 214850

This usually happens when the release pins are pulled too hard. It does not take much to get the bar to release. We will be in touch about a replacement.

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Weight Distribution for Chevy Silverado 1500 and Toy Hauler Trailer with 860 lbs Dry Tongue Weight
  • When choosing weight distribution you need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. A dry tongue weight of 860 pounds means that when loaded it is bound to be more so you will want a system with a tongue weight capacity range high enough to cover the loaded tongue weight. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent...

  • How to Choose the Correct Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for a Nash 25C Trailer
  • The key to choosing the correct weight distribution system is choosing a system that can support the total tongue weight of your towing setup. The total tongue weight includes the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer as well as the weight of any cargo loaded in the tow vehicle behind the rear axles. If you find that the loaded tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo loaded behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle weigh more than 750 lbs, then you will...

  • How to Determine the Correct Rise or Drop Needed for a Weight Distribution Shank
  • If you go over the options, see link, ahead of time then you will not have to worry about returning a shank to get a different one!

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 7500 lb Travel Trailer
  • Of the three systems you mentioned I would go with the Trunnion Bar Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66084 because of the sway control system that proactively works to prevent sway before it starts. Also because the general consensus around etrailer.com is that trunnion systems are the better design. The bars are very easy to remove and install in the head. Since there is no bend in them, they are considered stronger and more durable. Since the head does not come down and the bars do...

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution for a 2015 Ram 2500 and 2016 Cruiser View Finder Signature
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The 1,000 pound Blue Ox SwayPro system will likely be too light for your trailer. I would go with the next step up, the 1,500 pound system, # BXW1500. For a 2-5/16 inch ball use # 19286.

This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You want to pick a system where the loaded tongue weight falls right into the middle of the tongue weight range of the system. Since your tongue weight is 975 lbs I would...

Please note that your hitch must be rated for use with weight distribution; this will be indicated on its safety sticker.

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 23-Foot Trailer Pulled by 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • Selection of a weight distribution/sway control system hinges primarily on the trailer's fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight. Dry weight does not tell you what capacity system you'll need for proper weight distribution to your tow vehicle's front wheels. The system you referenced, Reese # RP66020, works with trailers whose fully-loaded tongue weight ranges from 200 - to 600-lbs and so this would likely be too light a system for your trailer's empty weight of 550-lbs.

  • Your truck, trailer and weight distribution system all appear to be compatible with each other, If you are still experiencing sway after installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System, # BXW1000, there are a few things we can look at. The first thing that I would look at is the tongue weight of the trailer. The tongue weight of the trailer, when it is loaded and ready to tow, should be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If the tongue weight is too light or too heavy,...

  • Selecting Properly Tuned Weight Distribution System for Travel Trailer Towed by 2014 Silverado 1500

Trailer dry hitch weight is not enough to select the correct system. Also, you need to add to the trailer's measured tongue weight the weight of anything in the truck bed that sits on or behind the rear axle, let's say a fully-loaded cooler, generator, etc....

If this cannot be done you should consider re-installing the system from scratch; the installation instructions are linked for you. For the system to work as intended the angle...

  • Can a Trailer be Backed Up when Using Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution
  • You can back up with a Blue Ox Sway Pro system, such as # BXW1000, installed on your trailer. You might find that during tight maneuvers it may become necessary to remove the spring bars but those times are situational and it would be best to have a spotter when backing up so you know the limitations of the system in any given situation. You can avoid any issue by always removing the spring bars, no matter the situation, if it is feasible for you.

In addition to your trailer's measured tongue weight you need to include in the equation the weight of anything...
