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.

We received the product in record time! We had our local mechanic install the weight distribution hitch in no time (I didn't have the proper tools). If I had the proper tools I'm sure that I could have installed the hitch - especially with the extremely helpful tutorial videos on this site. We are now on our way across the country on a 1 month long road trip. Thanks etrailer!20995

I have ordered several items, including the round bar weight distribution kit, in three separate shipments over the past several weeks. Every item was of excellent quality, exactly as advertised, installed easily according to the convenient video instructions, and worked perfectly. I found etrailer's prices to be the best in every case, and the free shiping on my orders made them an even better bargain. Each of the shipments arrived as scheduled, and were in excellent condition. I have no doubt that I'll search etrailer first when shopping for trailer and towing accessories in the future.23542

This hitch was exactly as discussed with, I believe, Matt. It actually shipped and was receive just as Matt had promised. Matt really helped me out A LOT in a tight situation. He went above and beyond to actually go to the warehouse and get me measurements from the hitch and actually followed through with returning a phone call that he said he would. Locally, I tried U-Haul and they were pretty well useless and did not even seem to care about helping a custome. I do plan on using ETrailer again in the future. Thank you Matt for all your help 10831

It took me about 2 hours to read all of the instructions before starting to put this hitch together. However, when I ran into problems I was able to view the video on "This Old Trailer" Thank goodness for Etrailer.com's video section on Youtube!8779

The weight distribution hitch was exactly what I was looking for, and at a price lower than I expected. Plus, the shipping was free! Not only that, but I ordered it on a Sunday, and chose the free ground delivery, and it was shipped the same day with a 3-5 day shipping upgrade at no additional cost. It was at my door on Wednesday. You can't beat that! I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone. Great company.20495
