Video Transcript for Review of CURT Replacement 600 lbs MV Spring Bar - C17071

Hi, there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this replacement spring bar for your Curt MV weight distribution system. This is going to replace one round spring bar for your MV weight distribution system. This is going to come in different weight capacities so you wanna make sure you're getting the right one. You can see list of our part numbers there on the screen for the different weight capacities for the different spring bars.

They are all very similar, but they just have slightly different thicknesses that give them that weight capacity. But they are interchangeable. So if you're needing to replace, if you're just needing to replace your spring bar, you can get the same weight capacity or if you have got a different trailer or your setup has changed and you just need to change the weight capacity, you can switch out the bars to a higher weight capacity or a lower weight capacity. They're all going to work with your MV weight distribution system. These are Curt bars, so you're not gonna have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that.

So they are gonna get put into your head unit the exact same way. And then you've got the tray attached chain fastener and the chain here so that you can get those mounted onto your trailer exactly like your original system. So very easy to get this switched out, whether you're needing to replace that exact same weight capacity or if you're switching out your weight capacity. These are gonna be steel construction so they are very durable. They got the black powder coat on them have to resist rest.

So they're gonna hold up well for you. And it's really nice option rather than having to get a whole new weight distribution system. If you get a new trailer, you can just switch out these spring bars and that'll allow you to and make sure that your system is appropriate for your setup. So that's gonna complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com.

Thanks for watching..

Purchased a smaller trailer (yup - downsizing)...our old trailer required a WDH rated at 8-10K...the new one only weighs 3000lbs so the stiff bars were just not working. A quick online chat with a support rep at etrailer showed me I could just replace the bars and save the expense of a whole new WDH.
These bars fit perfectly into the hitch assembly. Granted it is a CURT hitch, but it is quite old. I would double check the diameter of the pin end of the bar if your hitch is something else. While they all look similar (based on a walk around the campground) I'll bet they are not universal in size.
I wouldn't tow without a WDH. Even though our tow vehicle is way over rated for our new trailer it just makes towing so much smoother. As with anything like this do your homework, understand how to properly set up the system and you'll be happy. It is possible to create an unstable tow condition with an improperly set up WDH...you can remove too much tongue weight if your not careful.
These replacement bars allowed me to continue safely using my WDH at low cost. etrailer support is second to none and can help you get the right setup.

We will appreciate these spring bars on our next camping trip. Like most orders these days, there was a bit of a delay in receiving these, but we were constantly sent emails informing us of the delay and the change on the estimated delivery date.

The debate lately has been, does the 3,000 lb travel trailer need a weight distribution hitch. The jury is still out on the subject. All I can say is that i experience much greater control and relax my grip on the steering wheel a bit when I use the weight distribution hitch. I purchased these spring bars to replace the ones I was previously using that were for a much larger trailer, so hopefully there is now less stress on my camper’s frame. I’m very happy now knowing I have the right bar for the job.

Works great. Perfect for my 21ft camper.

Fantastic service. I was blown away when my parts arrives the next day. James assisted me in fitting my partial hitch together with WD parts.

Keep up the great work!

Thank you.

  • Which Spring Bars Should I Use On My 2021 Ford Bronco Towing A Small Trailer
    The spring bars you'll need to use will depend partly on your total tongue weight, as well as the weight capacity of the bars. If your tongue weight is somewhere in the 500-600-lb range, then the better option would be the Replacement Spring Bar for Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17071 like you mentioned. However if the tongue weight range is in the range of 800-1,000-lbs then the: -Replacement Spring Bar for Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17073 like the ones currently...

  • How To Determine If The Curt MV Weight Distribution Is Correct For a 5,400LB Trailer
    The important thing to remember with the Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17052 is while it is rated for a trailer up to 10,000lbs you need to stay within the tongue weight rating which is 800-1,000lbs for this hitch. If the tongue weight on your trailer falls in this window then there is no disadvantage to using this weight distribution on your trailer. For weight distribution if the bars are rated for more tongue weight than what you have you do risk transferring more weight onto...

  • Which Spring Bars Fit Curt MV Weight Distribution Head C17075
    It's possible that EAZ-Lift spring bars will fit the Curt Replacement MV Weight Distribution Head # C17075, but that's not something we can confirm as it hasn't been tested. With that said it is a bit unlikely, as most of the time brands make their spring bars just slightly different so that they aren't interchangable. For something that'll work 100% you'll want to go with one of the following MV spring bars based on the total tongue weight of your loaded trailer: 600lbs # C17071 800lbs...

  • Gen-Y Weight Distribution System for Different Tongue Weights and Compatibility with Torsion Hitch?
    For your Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1024 the Weight Distribution System for Gen-Y Ball Mounts with 2" Receivers has been discontinued and will fit if you have it but is rated for 1,000 to 1,400 lbs total tongue weight. That total tongue weight is the loaded tongue weight of your trailer along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The issue with this particular pairing is the limitation of your 10K receiver as you stated. The solution is...
