Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Tow a couple times a year and need a basic but sturdy weight distribution system
  • Want to avoid the hassle of disconnecting anything to back your rig up or to tow in the rain
  • Have a trailer with 600 lbs – 800 lbs of tongue weight

No, if you:

  • Travel through areas with very high winds where you'll need every bit of sway control available
  • Have a van or low-riding car that requires more ground clearance than you can get with round bars
  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns
The rigid brackets in this weight distribution hitch provide steel-on-steel friction to help keep your trailer in line. Ultimately, this helps to prevent and correct sway for a smooth ride. Adjustable shank and 2-5/16" hitch ball included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Blue Ox.

The rigid brackets in this weight distribution hitch provide steel-on-steel friction to help keep your trailer in line. Ultimately, this helps to prevent and correct sway for a smooth ride. Adjustable shank and 2-5/16" hitch ball included.

Specs:

  • Tongue weight: 600 lbs - 800 lbs
  • Gross towing weight: 10,000 lbs
  • Application: 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers rated for use with weight distribution systems
  • Max drop: 2-3/4"
  • Max rise: 6-1/2"
  • Ball size: 2-5/16"
  • Limited lifetime warranty


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.

Best hitch for E-Pro 16BH by far. I have towed my camper with 2021 F-150 for a few months without this hitch. Not bad but let me say that with this Blue Ox things have improved dramatically. Everything is level and sway has reduced significantly. I chose this hitch due to price as well as the the trailer tongue set up of my Flagstaff E-Pro 16BH propane and battery configuration. I assume same for E-Pro 16BH and GeoPro 16BH as these are the same build. I had to remove my propane tray to install this but things fit like a glove and was able to re-install the tray and tanks without having to relocate anything. The install instructions mention measurements from the center of the receiver which I found to be a slightly long for my trailer- see pics with the 20" and 24" marks

Love this hitch! Looked at the higher cost ones, went with this one. 1st trip was a short one. Real test was a 2 week vacation to Colorado from Louisiana. The wind across north Texas is no joke!!!!! I seen other trailers swaying all over the road. Was able to keep my speed with minimal sway and movement. I could not imagine what that drive is like without a WD system.

Looks like the box came open in shipping but I think it all arrived. Does not have the instructions with it but I got the off the website. Arrived a couple days before I expected it to. Good job!

Review from a similar 2-Point Weight Distribution in Weight Distribution Hitch


The Blue Ox is exactly what I needed for my 2018 Titan to pull my Ozark 1650 without even knowing its back there. It sets up easy and does make a difference even with an ultralight camper. Makes long trips with my travel trailer painless. I had an issue with a damaged package that wasn't received as it was sent back. I called eTrailer immediately to find out the issue and was met with wonderful customer service. I was instantly relieved to find that during the phone conversation (Ashley? not sure of her name) I was already booked to get the same Blue OX WDH rushed to me. This saved me from scrapping my weekend camping plans and showed the high level of professionalism and expertise that etrailer brings to the table. I WILL ALWAYS give my business to etrailer for this very reason.

Review from a similar 2-Point Weight Distribution in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a very good weight distribution hitch for light weight trailers. Installation was fairly simple, but can be cumbersome if you have to make any changes. Using a flat level surface and a tape measure is key. Recommend you get a tongue jack stand along with this, otherwise you’ll have a difficult time raising the trailer enough to get the arms on. Keeping it from being 5 stars, the packaging was absolutely awful. Multiple holes in the box that were taped up, parts had banged around inside the box chipping some of the paint. Hopefully this gets corrected in the future.

Review from a similar 2-Point Weight Distribution in Weight Distribution Hitch


The parts were all included and quality built. It was simple to install and easy to read instructions. Once I installed the product, I drove around the block and could not tell the trailer was even on the back of the truck. It has smoothed out the towing.

See what our Experts say about this Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Will the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution System # BLU65FR Work for My 700 Tongue Weight Needs?
    Yes, when the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 6-Hole Shank - 10K GTW, 800 TW # BLU65FR gives a range of 600-800 pounds of tongue weight, you will be good to go if you have 700 pounds of tongue weight. Since your total tongue weight of your setup falls into the middle of the Blue Ox's range, this is an ideal system for you.

    Thank you for all of the info! For your application I recommend picking up the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BLU65FR which has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 800 lbs and will mount anywhere between 20" - 25" for the L Brackets when measuring from the center of the trailer coupler.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for Keystone Springdale with 530 lb Tongue Weight
    The best weight distribution for towing a Keystone Springdale with a tongue weight of 530 lbs is the Reese Strait Line part # RP66083 which has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs and features best sway control at preventing sway before it starts. For a similar Blue Ox kit to the one that you referenced that would be the correct rating you'd want the part # BLU65FR which is rated for tongue weights between 500-800 lbs.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Lance Camper with GVWR of 7000 lb
    To pick out the best weight distribution you need at least a pretty close figure on what the tongue weight will be. The reason for this is if you go too low the system isn't effective and if you overshoot it you end up with a pretty rough ride quality. Which based on the description of your ride quality and fact you said the bars are huge I predict that this is what's going on with your setup. So the part # BLU65FR could work for you but it has a pretty narrow tongue weight range at 600-800...

    For a weight distribution system that has built in sway control you are going to want the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control item # BLU65FR. This system has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 800 lbs which is typically 10% - 15% of your trailer's total weight. The Blue Ox system uses L-brackets that keep the spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds your trailer in line. A 2-5/16" hitch ball is included along with a 2" shank that has a maximum drop of 2-3/4"...

  • Best Weight Distribution Hitch System For Travel Trailer Dry Weight of 5,250lbs Tongue Weight 587lbs
    The main difference between the Blue Ox TrackPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BLU47FR and the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BLU65FR is going to be the spring bar design. The round bar of the 2-Point is not a design that I like. The bar having the bend creates a weak point in the design, and will not be as stable as a trunnion bar like the TrackPro uses. Since it loads in from the bottom you will loose ground clearance at this point which I often see will...

  • Comparing Blue Ox 2-Point and Curt TruTrack 2P Weight Distribution Systems for a FR Wolf Pup 17JG
    Generally speaking, it is not advisable to reverse a trailer when using a weight distribution system. The system won't blow up but if you reverse at too sharp an angle then you can damage the head so you have to do so in a pretty straight line or not at all. If you want to reverse at an angle you'll need to disengage the spring bars which is pretty simple. That said, the Curt TruTrack 2P Weight Distribution Systems like part # C69JR and Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution Systems like part...

  • Trouble Getting Round Spring Bars in Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch
    Thank you for your purchase from etrailer of the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution # BLU65FR. Thanks for the photos, and based on those, the only tip I can offer is to use grease at the top of the bars, as it doesn't look like they are greased from I can see. You'll want to coat the entire round end of the bars using LubriMatic Moly EP Grease # LM54FR with Grease Gun # L30200.

  • Recommended Weight And Sway Distribution Hitch for Riverside RV Retro Travel Trailer
    The Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution # BLU65FR is designed for trailers with a tongue weight of 600-800lbs and with that I cannot recommend using this hitch with your Riverside RV Retro 179 pulled with your 2020 Toyota Tacoma. I recommend using the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-0800. This will work with tongue weights from 400-800lbs and trailers up to 8,000lbs. It also uses trunnion weight distribution bars that will give you better ground clearance and last longer. You...

  • Determining Correct Weight Distribution Hitch For 2019 Dodge Durango Towing 2021 Keystone Passport
    I would be happy to help! Since your 2019 Dodge Durango is limited to 6200lbs trailer weight, and tongue weight is typically 10-15% of the trailer weight the max tongue weight of your trailer should be 620-930lbs.

  • Comparing Blue Ox, Curt, and Fastway Weight Distribution for Starcraft Launch Hybrid
    When it comes to weight distribution, tongue weight is the most important factor. It looks like you are ahead of the game and accounted for that with each of these systems, great job. I would still recommend finding your actual tongue weight once your trailer is loaded up. You can use a tongue weight scale like the # 5780 or the bathroom scale method to find this. Starting with the Curt # C17051, I would definitely not recommend this over the Blue Ox or Fastway. As you pointed out, this...
