Featuring friction sway control, this weight-distribution system includes an adjustable shank, and its flexible, powder coated steel, round spring bars create a level ride for both your trailer and your tow vehicle. Fits 2" trailer hitches.
|Included w/ PS49901||Optional Add-Ons|
Note: This weight-distribution system cannot be used on trailers with surge brakes. The sway control must be removed when you are going in reverse.
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.
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.
To adjust your weight-distribution head assembly to the correct angle, insert the included rivet and up to 8 washers into a 1/2-inch hole in the "U" on your head assembly. Use the smallest number of washers necessary to achieve the correct downward angle for the spring bars. Each washer lowers the chain ends of your spring bars by approximately 1-1/2 inches. Once the correct angle is reached, use the included bolts, serrated washers and nuts to lock the unit into place.
The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight-distribution head and are secured with built-in, spring-bar locking devices for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and forged steel construction, these bars flex to ensure a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer.
The integrated friction-style sway control of the Pro Series system reduces trailer sway caused by winds, winding roads and sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install, simply bolt the sway-control ball plate to the A-frame of your trailer and attach the other end to the included ball, which mounts on the head of your weight-distribution hitch - drilling required. The ball plate mounts to the side of the trailer frame so it will not interfere with gas tanks, toolboxes or generators.

Shipping slow this time. Usually a lot faster with products. Hitch heavy duty for vehicle but maintained stability and worked flawlessly when towing. Small light Nissan SUV married with 3500lb utility trailer. Mfgr includes a ball but I required a 2 inch ball. Extremely hard to remove (overtightened from mfgr) and needed a local mechanic with better tools. Will not use as regular hitch because of weight. When having car and trailer with max weight, it is a necessity. Surprisingly easy to set up and change. Instructions were correct and easy to understand. Sway control helpful with desert winds, highway truck grooves, and highway speeds; just tighten a little more.78010
The weight-distributing hitch is well made and was delivered much more quickly than anticipated, which was great. While not cheap, the price was a good deal lower than the competition. The product is very heavy, and handling damaged the cardboard box in transit. Fortunately, it comes well packed, so nothing was lost from the box. I do wish the unit had not come with the ball mounted, as one of the things I have to do is find tools to swap the mounted ball for the smaller ball for my 16' Casita travel trailer.66090
I have used this system on a few trips now and it works very well. One trip was over 6 hours each way using back roads and hiways. It was easy to setup, install, and use. My only complaint is that it has a lot of adjustment room to raise it above the reciever, but vey little room below. I would like mine to be one or two holes lower.56861

Works as expected. Only major complaint was that bolting the ball mount REQUIRED an air wrench - which no longer made it a DIY job to assemble for me.39677
