Create a more 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.

Products arrived as ordered, however, the 2 week delivery time was a bit excessive for an online merchant nowadays.

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Installed on the truck for a test fit. IT comes with a chrome ball installed, usually 13K rated 2 5/16", 7.5K 2" for the smallest model. Quality looks good, everything went together simply. The bolts for the head to shank are to be torqued at 257ft/lbs each, my torque wrench maxes out at 150ft/lbs so will have to have the dealer tighten it when I pick up my new trailer in a few days. Comes with a large pry bar to spring the bars onto the J hooks on the tongue brackets. The shank, head and even the tongue clamp plate look cast, are quite heavy duty, not welded plate stock.

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


My experience started off with a total failure by the shipping dept. Box completely blown out on both ends, and parts rolling around loose in the UPS truck.So my parts got beat up, management offered me 15 bucks for spray paint. Which they can keep. Assembled my hitch, amazed by having all the parts, despite the delivery. Great hitch, engineered well..

  • Determining The Correct Weight Distribution Hitch For 2021 Grand Design 31' Travel Trailer
    It is possible that the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank - 13K GTW, 1.3K TW # BLU27FR you were looking at will work for towing your 2021 Grand Design Reflection 31' Travel Trailer, but you will need to know the total tongue weight which is different than the tongue weight listed in the brochure. Total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to tow trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2006 Chevrolet...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for 5000 lb Trailer
    Weight Distribution hitches are classified by the maximum tongue weight they'll handle, so the logical first step in choosing the right system for your needs would be to identify the tongue weight of your trailer as it sits when it's fully loaded up like it would be when you tow it. I'll link an article explaining how this is done, but the easiest way to determine the trailers tongue weight would be to use a tongue weight/payload scale like the Curt Better Weigh, part # C51701.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation For 2018 Forest River Surveyor 285IKLE Travel Trailer
    Ok, we can definitely help you out here with a really good weight distribution hitch for your 2018 Forest River Surveyor 285IKLE travel trailer. Since it's a pretty good size at just over 32 feet I'm not surprised that you are experiencing quite a bit of sway, particularly on the highway, so I think that should be our number one concern. The right system is going to depend on your total tongue weight, which we can calculate to be in the neighborhood of 12 percent or so of the trailer's...

  • What is the Maximum Drop on the Blue Ox 7 Hole Shank
    I spoke to Blue Ox and the TrackPro Weight Distribution System # BLU27FR offers a maximum 2 inches of drop or 8 inches of rise if needed. That is going from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. This is standard for their 7 hole shanks that come with this part. If more drop is needed, however, we do have a couple other options available for the shanks. The Blue Ox Shank # BXW4002 will give you 4 1/2 inches of drop and 10 1/2 inches of rise. The Blue Ox Shank # BLU86FR...

  • How to Increase the Towing Capacity of a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
    When considering increasing the towing capacity of your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, there is something that you need to keep in mind. That is the fact that without serious upgrades to your engine and body, you cannot exceed the towing capacity of your hitch. However, it looks like the hitches made for your Sierra are rated for weight distribution systems. Using one of these can increase the load your vehicle can handle. For example, the Curt Class IV for your Sierra, part # C14006, has a tongue...

  • Best Weight Distribution Recommendation for Trailer with 8,700 lb Dry Weight
    For a trailer with a dry weight of 8,700 lbs the Blue Ox TracPro weight distribution system that would be the best rated for that would be the part # BLU27FR which has a tongue weight range of 1,000-1,300 lbs. Now the best weight distribution and sway control I would recommend for your trailer would be the Reese Strait Line part # RP66084 which has the most effective sway control design that works to prevent sway before it starts. This system has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs.

  • How To Eliminate Sway When Towing 34' Toy Hauler With 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    It is pretty common for toy haulers to have sway issues since depending where you load your Harley it may actually reduce the tongue weight of the trailer. I recommend trying to load your Harley directly above or slightly in front of the axles of the trailer. If that doesn't work the best option would be a weight distribution hitch with built in sway control like the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # BLU66FR, but to determine...
