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.

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

Well built product-solid product! My friend highly recommended this Blue Ox Sway Bar. I seen it on his truck when he came to our camp. I didn't have one. I'll be using this sway bar real soon. USA made...I hope? No Blue Ox Bull - from China. Keep on working hard, Ron67772

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

Concrned that prodiuct is different than ordered. No thumb screw or set screw for adjustments that are shown on site and item ordered.43565


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.

  • 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 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 not stic

  • 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! Basically, you will need to determine what rise or drop you will need in order to tow the trailer level and then get a shank that has the proper amount of rise or drop. I have included a link to an FAQ article that covers ball mounts but the same technique is used to determine the rise or drop needed for a weight distribution shank. Shanks for the Blue Ox system

  • 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 of th

But if the attachment bracket for that original sway control unit is still affixed to the frame then there is a chance it might interfere with the spring bar lift brackets.

  • Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System for 2012 F150 Towing a Hemisphere 282rk w/ 690lbs TW
  • The first step in choosing a weight distribution/sway control system is to determine the tongue weight of the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. To that figure, you add the weight of any gear stowed behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle to arrive at what we call the Total Tongue Weight, or TTW. I have linked you to an article that describes a few ways to determine this. If your TTW falls into the 750-1000 lb tongue weight capacity range of the # BXW1000 Sway Pro system, it wo
