Yes, if you:

  • Have little time or patience to mess with fine-tuning adjustments and want the quickest and easiest system to get hooked up
  • Hate the scraping and popping that is typical with other weight distribution systems
  • Have a taller tow vehicle that'll require a bigger drop

No, if you:

  • Tow with a vehicle where the hitch is less than 13" from the ground
  • Have a trailer with a C-channel frame or a crossmember that could interfere with the clamp-on brackets
Shank fits 2" hitches and offers rise and drop. System uses optimal points of tension to help prevent sway while it balances your trailer's load for a more level ride. Clamp-on brackets require no drilling. Great Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Blue Ox.

n/an/a

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.


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.


Unique Features of Blue Ox SwayPro

Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other weight distribution systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.


Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.


Built-In Tension Stops Sway

Blue Ox SwayPro System with Built-In Sway Control Hooked Up

The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

Ive had the blue ox a year now, and have gone on 9 trips with my heritage glen 23bhhl. My silverado pulls it with ease and straight as an arrow thanks to this hitch. Once again a must have!!!

Excellent, well built product. Easy to install and use. Makes a difference. Truck went from sagging to normal stance. Pulls the trailer with ease.

Very nice. I am very happy with this product . It definitely helps reduce sway. I am more excited about the connection process , very easy.

Only disappointment was the latch wrench. Previous review (... was impressed that Blue Ox has totally upgraded the chain latch wrench. No longer that flat piece of metal. The new wrench is a plated, heavy duty socket wrench. Much like a wheel lug nut wrench that is made especially for releasing the latches). Apparently the upgraded version of the wrench is hit -or- miss.

I have had this hitch for a year now and I still love it. I towed my 31 foot TT from South Carolina to Washington state with my 2016 Nissan NV3500 van. I experienced very little sway, if at all, especially going through the Dakotas, Wyoming and Montana. After having serious sway problems with my previous hitch, I had looked into getting a Hensley type but I didn’t know if it was worth the money. I am so glad I didn’t spend that much because the Blue Ox has been worth every cent and costs much less. It was easy to install and is very easy to hook up and detach from my tow vehicle. I definitely recommend this hitch!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a good system, though it can require some tinkering when hitching up. Sometimes it's super easy (connect the bars to the receiver, loop the links to the clamps, and rotate until it clicks into place, done!) while occasionally as the ground varies one bar may resist getting loaded and you have to find a level spot to adjust it. We have found the need to change frequently which link its cranked to. In fact, a couple times I've gone to our standard setting but later had to pull over and crank a couple extra links tighter to keep the sway down. That said, it fit all the criteria for the weight range, frame mount points, etc. and has worked over multiple trips and several hundred miles so far.

I would say the powder coating has been pretty durable, there is a bit of rust developing on the clamps where there's been contact with the chains for one year. But the bars, links, and receiver are looking fine overall.

Overall, it wasn't the first model we had our eye on but it fit the situation and we are fairly happy with how it all turned out.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I have used my Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item #BXW1000 now for the past year towing our Airstream 27FB with a Ford F150 over 5000 miles and six weeks of road trips.

For comparison, I had used Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control hitches on three prior travel trailers over eight years - including a prior 27FB.

For comparable levels of weight distribution, I have found:
1. The sway control with the Blue Ox is more of a dampening of sway - making it tolerable, while the Reese seemed to eliminate the sway from starting in the first place. A noticeable difference with crosswinds and passing semis at highway speeds.
2. Tightening and loosening the torsion bars with the supplied wrench and rotating cam of the Blue Ox is more stressful and unpredictable than using the lever pipe and lift bracket for the cam of the Reese. I bought a longer torsion bar and socket to replace the supplied wrench which helps (see photo).
3. While the Reese torsion bars and cams require routine topical application of grease, the Blue Ox torsion bar swivel attachments (see photo) require a grease gun to keep lubricated which is a nuisance.
4. Routine wear on the paint of the Blue Ox cam (see photo) adds rust as a maintenance problem that I didn't have with the Reese systems.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


The blue ox pro weight distribution looks extremely well built. However, When I ordered the kit, I believe it said it did not come with a ball. So I ordered a ball. I now have an extra ball that I don't need. UPS delivered the box and the box was crushed, two holes punctured into the box. Fortunately for me, all the pieces were still in the box. Past that, I'm excited to pull my trailer and see how it does.

This is included in the product description: System includes head assembly, adjustable shank, spring bars, lift chains, rotating lift brackets with handles, reducer bushing for ball shank, pin and clip, 2 and 5 sixteenth inch hitch ball, and all necessary hardware.

After a year, the hitch assembly is incredible. You dont know how well it is constructed until you see other hitches and the thin material used. I would buy again in a heart beat.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I bought the blue ox weight distribution hitch as an upgrade from my original weight distribution hitch that I purchased from Harbor freight. What a difference!


Comments
Game Changer. I love my Blue Ox WDH. It has worked flawlessly since I purchased and installed it on my trailer. I have towed my 30 foot travel trailer in all kinds of weather including windy conditions and the hitch works great. I used to tow a 22 foot travel trailer with a Harbor Freight WDH, and that trailer would sway without an additional and noisy anti sway bar. The Blue Ox doesnt need one, and even though my new trailer is 8 feet longer, it does not sway much at all. Not only does it keep my 8500 lb trailer straight, it is easy to hook up. I dont dread hooking up like I used to.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


When you adjust the sway bars so they have a bend in them and your trailer and pickup truck are level then you are dialed in. The system works great. I towed our travel trailer over nine thousand miles. On our trip we traveled through wind coming from every direction, the trailer was rock solid behind my pickup.
I very much recommend the blue ox sway pro.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


The hitch works as designed and for that I would give 5 stars, however the manufacturer claims their hitch is powder coated? Must be some really bad powder coating since the finish flakes off easily much like regular enamel paint. Everything I have ever had powder coated was a hell of a lot more durable than what's applied to this hitch assembly. If you don't mind the powder coating (paint) flaking off and rusting then it will be a non-issue for you.


Comments
I recommend touching up the WD system with a rust resistant paint. Over time the system will experience nicks and scratches from road debris and having the paint on hand will be beneficial.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I had a question about a "used" version of the BXW1000, so I jumped on the chat with customer service and they were able to answer my questions about what "used" was considered (in this case, damaged packaging/cosmetic defects, nothing structural and the hitch was not used and returned used for resale).

I also asked if all the parts would be in the box, and of course the answer was yes.

I recieved the hitch in very short order (and I received order/shipping updates). The outer box had a good amount of clear packaging tape, but was intact. Upon inspection, the hitch looked (as it was) brand new, and the only blemish I noticed was some overspray from the paint in two of the threaded bolt holes, which was easily removed with a small screwdriver.

Thanks to etrailer for a very smooth ordering/shipping process and to your excellent customer service representatives!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


After much research, I chose this Blue Ox. Liked this style over the others for it's simple use and less clips to lose. My issue was the rear of my KIA was sagging allowing the camper nose to drop. Which in turn made the camper sway. Very simple installation. The object is tweaking it to get both the tow vehicle and camper level and to line the chain up with the bracket mounted on the frame of the trailer/camper. We've taken it out on 1 short trip so far and it has definitely been an improvement. It is quite heavy, but just about all brands are. Read others that said the ball was not included..... mine was! Very pleased with my decision.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I specifically asked what bars to buy and answered questions about dry weight, tongue weight and max trailer weight. I was steered to 1000 lb bars even though that was not even 10% of max trailer weight when 12-15% of max weight is the typical range for tongue weight. I ended up replacing with the next step which was 1500 lb bars. You gave me the wrong answer and it cot me another set of bars and left me no way of recovering what I spent for wrong bars. Bad advice=bad customer service. The only reaso I gave 2 stars is you delivered on time to my rv dealer as instructed.


Comments
Depending on the total tongue weight of the trailer you will want to a weight distribution system where your trailers loaded and unloaded weight will fall into the range of the bars. This system has a tongue weight range of 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs. The next system up will be part number part # BXW1500

This W/D hitch does everything it is supposed to do. It was very easy to set up and my new trailer tows like a dream. Just a hint-- I mark the chains with some paint so I know where to set them.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Another positive shopping experience with etrailer.com. I received the Blue Ox BXW0756 weight distributing hitch and I'm extremely pleased with it. It offers robust construction. It's easy to setup. It's also a major upgrade over the Camco Recurve R3 I had been using. Even with comparable spring bar weight ratings this hitch performs better. Far easier to get the weight balanced. The trailer tongue brackets are easily attached and adjusted, and don't damage the trailer tongue. I abandoned the Recurve after repeatedly experiencing problems with the trailer brackets failing to remain properly placed after a trip. They would move and gouge the tongue, no matter how tight the bolts were.
I took a chance ordering the hitch while on vacation and having it shipped to my vacation spot, nervous it wouldn't arrive before my trip home. etrailer and UPS came through and I received it without issue. Thanks for making the trip home a happy one with an awesome hitch etrailer.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Scary hitch!!!! Please be sure to read the proper way to operate this weight distribution hitch!!! Follow the instruction to the letter and watch several [online] demonstrations. I relied on the RV dealer to assist me and spent the day in the Emergency Room. Serious injury can result if you do not follow the proper procedures!!!

The hitch does work as advertised with great sway control and leveling of the truck.




by:

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I really like the hitch as far as function and design. My only complaint about it is when spending almost $800 dollars for a piece of equipment you would think it would at least come powder coated rather than painted over poorly/un-prepped metal. The paint is flaking off tow bars in multiple locations and you can see it was never properly adhered. However this is still a mostly cosmetic concern and I am still very pleased overall with the hitch so I still gave it four stars.

  • Is There A Specific Range Of Tongue Weights That A 10000lb Weight Distribution Hitch Works With?
    There is a minimum and maximum tongue weight range for 10000lb weight distribution hitches, but the range can be slightly different between brands. For example the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # BLU66FR has a 10000lb trailer weight rating and works with tongue weights between 750-1000lbs. Where the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 10K GTW # FA94-00-1061 works with tongue...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch With Sway For a 7,000LB GVWR Trailer And 524LB Tongue Weight
    I recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66083 with your tongue weight of 524lbs and GTW of 7,000lbs. This hitch is rated for a trailer up to 8,000lbs and a tongue weight of 400-800lbs. You will need a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 19286 or 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 to match your coupler and a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216 to install the ball. With the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution # BLU66FR being rated for 750-1,000lbs of tongue weight I am concerned that...

  • 18 Inch to 20 Inch Hitch Extender and Ball Mount for Clearing a 2002 GMC 2500HD Tailgate
    You have a couple of options depending on the size of the receiver on your 2002 GMC 2500HD. The tailgate on your truck is close to 20" tall so it sticks out around 17"-18" past your bumper. For a 2 1/2" receiver you can use the 7" long Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender item # HR26 and the 13-1/4" Long Brophy Ball Mount item # BH20 to get past your tailgate. The Brophy hitch extender does reduce your hitch's weight capacity by one third so you would want to confirm this does not put you...

  • Will 1,400 lb Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch Work For 750 to 800 lb Tongue Weight
    The answer to your question - technically - is yes, for your trailer with a 770 lb tongue weight, you can use the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW # EQ37140ET. However, it is definitely not recommended, and the reason for that is the spring bars will be rated so much higher than your tongue weight that there won't be the proper amount of force on them, which will result in you having a very stiff ride and trailer that will bounce....

  • Tools Needed To Remove Trailer Hitch Ball From Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    To replace a hitch ball on the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution # BLU66FR you will need a 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket # ALL643216. This socket will fit inside the opening for the nut that fastens the hitch ball. The socket will require a 3/4" Ratchet # PT74VR. You will then be able to replace the hitch ball with a 2" # A-90 or 2-5/16" # C40030 Hitch Ball. Using White Grease Hitch Ball Lube # 58117 will help to reduce damage to the hitch ball as it will shed water from the ball.
