n/an/a

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.

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..

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.

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Fastway e2 vs. Blue Ox TrackPro for 7,000 lb Trailer
    Both the Fastway e2 and Blue Ox TrackPro are going to provide your 7,000 lb GVWR 2021 Micro Minnie 2108DS with excellent leveling and sway control at the spring bars, but there are a couple of distinctions between the two. First, let's just mention the correct system for your 7,000 lb GVWR trailer. You will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your...

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 600 lb Tongue Weight
    Since your tongue weight is a little over 600 lbs the best weight distribution from the brands you mentioned would be the Blue Ox TrackPro part # BLU47FR which has a tongue weight range of 500 - 800 lbs and features a great friction sway control. The other brands you mentioned don't have a system rated well for the tongue weight you have as they have great options for higher and lower rated setups.

  • 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.

  • Upgrading Spring Bars on a Blue Ox Track Pro
    The Blue Ox Track Pro 7 Hole Shank # BLU28FR can be used with systems with a tongue weight up to 1,300 pounds. Upgrading the bars to a capacity more suitable for your needs would require the Replacement 1,000 pound Track Pro Bars # BLU52FR. These are rated from 800 pounds at the minimum to 1,000 pounds on the maximum, so you would need to load the tongue of the trailer to stay within these weights.

    The difference between the 7 hole shank included with the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 7-Hole Shank - 8K GTW, 800 lbs TW # BLU47FR and the 9 hole shank included with the # BLU67FR is the amount of rise or drop the shank offers.

  • 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.

  • Towing Safely With A 2004 Toyota Tacoma
    Always go by your owners manual. If we were to give you a higher rated hitch, your Tundra will still be the limiting factor. I would encourage you to measure your tongue weight using this scale # e99044. Watch the video to get a closer look as to how it works! I always triple check the tongue weight to make sure I have an accurate number so I can make the right decisions moving forward. On that note, a trailer with a DRY tongue weight of 709 lbs will be too much for your truck once...

  • How To Stabilize And Level A 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe When Pulling A Trailer
    I have a solution for you, but there are not any suspension enhancement systems available for your 2018 Hyundai Sante Fe. Instead, I recommend looking into a weight distribution hitch which is the recommended method for leveling your vehicle and trailer. A weight distribution hitch takes the weight of the trailer off the rear axle of the vehicle and applies it more evenly throughout the entire vehicle and trailer. This results in less rear sag on the tow vehicle along with improved handling...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for 6000 lb Grand Design Imagine Travel Trailer
    The most accurate way to spec out a weight distribution system is to positively determine the tongue weight of the RV when it's fully loaded up as you'd typically have it when towing. To that figure, you'd add the weight of anything carried in the bed or cargo area of the tow vehicle that's behind the rear axle. This combined weight which is sometimes referred to as total tongue weight is the weight you'll use when choosing the proper weight distribution system for your needs. In your case,...
