  • Spring Bars

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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (343 Customer Reviews)

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.


Shipped as promised. Came with everything. Installed per excellent instructions.
Works very well on 21 chevy tahoe towing 6000lb 25 ft travel trailer.
Works as advertised. Havnt been in crosswinds, but trucks passing and meeting, hitch has good control. Load leveling works excellent.


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!

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.
Lou A - 07/21/2022


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.


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!



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.

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
Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 15,000 lbs GTW, 1,500 lbs TW
which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs - 1,500 lbs.

Towing a 29ft Keystone 7000lb trailer. A LOT quieter than the solid bar style hitch. Easier to set into place too. Takes a little getting use to when attaching the chains in the proper direction and releasing them. Great weight distribution. Fairly good sway control. Happy with the purchase.


Was so pleased with the service and pricing of this-staff members were with me every step of the way-from questions to updates about shipping to confirmation that I received the hitch. I look forward to getting it set up. Talk you again etrailer!


Received item with missing parts and not in original packaging. Box was pretty beat up and all taped up. Currently waiting for a resolution on the missing parts from one of your associates. Part very expensive for it to be received with missing part’s

I will have customer service reach out to you about your missing parts.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/01/2022


It worksgreat! I really like the customer service at etrailer. They help you get the parts you need and are fair if you need to send them back or exchange.

I have this stetup on my 2020 f-250 and 2021 keystone outback 210urs (5000lbs with around 500lb younger weight)
I’ve never towed the trailer without the bars on but I can say that the ride is smooth. On a smooth highway I have gone 70+mph for short periods to pass and it feels totally smooth and safe.

You don’t need these bars with a 3/4 ton Truck but it makes the ride more balanced and keeps you truck bed more level and I think that improves safety. It takes around 20% of the load off you tow hitch.

I ordered this before I received my trailer and had to return the chain and bar portion for the next size up because I ended up with a heavier trailer. Because of the delays from the factory. etrailer helped me out the whole way and only charged me shipping.

This is a no brainer! Get this hitch your suspension will thank you and buy from etrailer they are better at customer service than a brick and mortar store. Plus they have a huge inventory.


Works great.


Pros: Easy to install, doesnt squeak like all of the other ones. Able to back up without disconnecting. Easy to use as long as you lift the trailer up all the way on the tounge before you connect/disconnect. My truck (2017 F150 with 2020 Cougar 29BHS) sits perfectly level with no sag at all. Sway is minimal although I have yet to drive in anything with winds greater than 30MPH (thankfully)

Cons: Main con for me is having to raise up the tounge everytime to connect or disconnect the chains. If you dont do this, you will never be able to get enough links in for proper tension, and when you go to release the chains the tension will be extreme causing the breaker bar to go flying forward.


Great product! Exactly what I was looking for to use with my hitch extension for my boat trail and camper set up.

Excellent! This is exactly what I needed to help with the tongue weight of my boat trailer. This product takes the worry out of towing with the extended trailer hitch due to the camper on the truck.

Let me start off by saying why I wanted sway control. My first trip up Oregon's I5 between Eugene and Portland with my 28' Komfort Lite trailer in a moderate cross breeze, lots of semi's and fast traffic. Not a good first time experience, slowed from 60mph to 50mph to make it tolerable for me. Saw other trailers zoom by me at much faster speeds and looked to be pretty solid-no sway.
Had no clue which system to choose, so I looked at all that was available on the site. Many looked very complex and the reviews on each were mostly positive. So, I choose to go simple with the Blue Ox, easy 20 min bolt on. Did have to make a 1/2" adjustment on the latch brackets, as per the instructions, to have the chains straight up and down.
I haven't been on the road yet, but my initial hook up attempt has highlighted a couple of issues.
First, with all the tongue weight on the TV, there is no way you will be able to attach the chain where you want it. No biggie, as with the old system, just use the tongue jack to raise everything up until you can get to the link you want. Had to go higher than I was used to, but still OK.
Second, when unhooking (again, with weight on tongue jack), knuckles come very close to the spring bar on one side. Don't get distracted when rotating the latch to release the chain! Also, the chain wants to "snap" out of the slot at some point when rotating. I may want to retire the supplied wrench and go with a socket, short extension, and breaker bar just to keep my hands away from these potential hazards.
As always, the ordering process was great. Helps a lot when everybody understands what you are trying to do, then convey what you need.


Hitch is doing its job! Semis arent an issue anymore so Im more relaxed when towing. Those big delivery box trucks have more of an effect than semis, but no problem. Happy I got this hitch.
Richierod - 05/27/2017


etrailer responded right away when my package came in damaged from UPS. I checked all the parts, and none had fallen out during shipment. Great service by etrailer


I have been installing the hitch and the 26000 lb 2&5/16" ball that I ordered. All went well until I tried to install the ball which has a 1& 7/8" nut which requires a socket to tighten the nut in the hitch enclosure. Not having that size socket I could not find one that size in the local retail stores. I have resorted to buying an Altrade socket on line from Home Depot for $14. Hopefully it will fit in side the hitch nut enclosure.

Installed theSwayPro WD system and found it worked well until recent trip. Decided I need the 1500 bars because od additional weight.
Ron I - 08/10/2015


1yr review. First off Amy with customer support was extremely helpful with making sure I picked the correct product and to get it to me in a timely manner. Now for the product The BlueOx unit has been great, the hitch is a little heavy for some people but it is manageable, the installation was a breeze with clear instructions (video) and took about an hour with a quick trip to rent a torque wrench to tighten to spec and have my local dealership install the ball to avoid the cost of another socket. Setting the correct chain tension is a trial and error process based on your vehicle and trailer weight, I have two different settings based on it I’m carrying fresh water or not. Using the cam tension system can take some force to tighten but lift the tongue more it will help alleviate this but my wife does struggle with it when she hooks up (Don’t get hurt when camping). As for pulling it keeps the trailer on track (I pull a 33’ TT) provided you have good tension on the bars of it sways a bit take up another link. The unit is quite so no popping or cracking (like most) and you can back the unit in without disconnecting. The unit has held up to the Arizona weather and still looks like new except for the nuts welded to the tensioner where the wrench connects has some surface rust and wear. Overall this is a great product I like that additional parts can be purchased separately for additional trailer uses or upgrade for new trailers. My only complaint would be the amount of force needed to set the cam tensioners.


The hitch is good. The problem is that it hangs down really low and scrapes the ground a lot. It looks like the other ones sit up higher. It handles the sway and distribution really well.


The hitch was delivered in just a few days, earlier than expected. The hitch was exactly as described. The dealership attached the hitch to our Keystone Outback 298RE and Excursion without any problem. Our trip from Ohio to Colorado went without incident even though we traveled through wind, rain and snow. Hooking up the trailer with the SwayPro was no problem and very easy to use.

What is your tongue weight on the blue ox ? I have a Keystone outback 277RL 35 feet and looking at a blue ox 1500 tw and wondering if this the proper one to buy.

This trailer hitch and anti away system is top notch. I have owned multiple hitches for trailers over the years, but the Blue Ox is the winner. Thanks for a great product!

I had no idea what I needs and was sold this. Then seeing what others have. Yes. Definitely a nice setup

Using with a 27 foot Lance trailer and 2015 Jeep grand Cherokee.
Shipping and packing from e trailer great.
Hitch well made and easy to install. Replacing a Reese weight distribution hitch w/sway control that wasn't up to the job. Blue Ox controls sway well and tows much more smoothly-vibrations with old hitch eliminated.
Only dissatisfaction is with the paint. Several nicks/chips in the paint as delivered and over time some rusting of the latch mechanisms. Called Blue Ox-they said no touch up paint available. Used some Rustoleum that somewhat matches the texture and color. Would really like some OE paint from Blue Ox!


I purchased this weight distribution hitch to tow my 24 ft enclosed car trailer. The weight distribution and sway control are great. I also really like that the leveling bars do not have grease on them. I like the thought look of the powder coating. I am disappointed with the corrosion protection of the trailer attachment and the hitch. They started showing sign of corrosion quickly. The hitch was only left out in the rain for a day or two and it showed signs of corrosion.


After a year and thousands of miles later, this Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution system has worked flawlessly! We pull a about seventy-two hundred pound trailer with it in all kinds of weather conditions without worrying about “tail whipping”. The truck and trailer sits solidly level every time we hook up. The chains lock cam makes it a breeze to use, even my wife can do it while l’m taking care of other things. The design and construction are spot on. This is our third trailer and weight distribution system, and it is by far the best. It is so nice to be able to back up without having to remember to loosen a sway control arm! We highly recommend it!!!


After owning a couple other hitches including a Hensley the Blue Ox distribution hitch is my favorite and probably the only hitch I will own. Hooking up is easy enough however I would suggest using a socket attached to a break-over bar rather than the supplied wrench (just my opinion). I pull a 30ft Classic Airstream with a 3/4 ton HD Chevy Duramax and the Blue Ox with this combination is excellent. The only negative thing I have found about the hitch is over time it tends to get a little rust here and there so keep wiped down or touched up with similar paint.


Ordered the Blue Ox BXW1000. The ordering process was easy and the item shipped right away. I received it very quickly and shipping was FREE! A good thing when your order weighs almost 100 pounds. Installation was straight forward. I have not had a chance to tow with the new hitch, but I am looking forward to not hearing all the pops and snaps I heard with the old Husky. I also am looking forward to better sway control. Thanks etrailer!

  • Why You Shouldn't Park Trailer on Incline
    If you are asking about settting up a weight distribution system you'll need to find level ground for that. Also it's not ideal to leave a trailer parked on an incline or decline. Biggest reason being that if something happens to the wheel chocks the trailer is going to go rolling down the hill by itself and because it makes connecting difficult. Also if you aren't careful as you back up the the trailer you could knock it loose and cause it to start rolling. Sounds like you'd want a taller...

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution System Recommendation for an ATC Toy Hauler
    Since you have an aluminum trailer frame you will first need to contact your trailer manufacturer to verify that they recommend the use of a weight distribution system. From some searching around on the internet it looks like they say it's okay to use a WD system, but I still would recommend you contact them with your trailer model to be certain. The chain hanger bracket is designed to fit a 2 inch wide trailer frame. When you torque down the set screw you don't need to tighten it to the...

  • Can You Back Up with a Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    With weight distribution systems you can't really make tight turns while backing up. What we recommend is that if you are basically backing up in a straight line you can leave the spring bars on the system. But if you think you will end up jackknifing the trailer pretty tight while backing up you would need to disconnect the bars. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure...

  • Hitch Ball is Stuck in Trailer Coupler
    The first step you are going to take if you have not already done so is release the latching mechanism which could be either a thumb latch or hand knob. The thumb latch flips up and the hand knob turns (righty tighty, lefty loosey). You may need to adjust the jack's height or bounce up and down on the bumper a few times to loosen the mechanism. If you still can't get the trailer uncoupled then you may want to try and spray some lube inside the coupler on the hitch ball and tap the top...

  • How Does Tongue Weight Typically Affect Trailer Sway
    If you don't have enough tongue weight relative to the total trailer weight you'll end up with bad sway problems like you mentioned. The tongue weight of the trailer needs to be 10 to 15 percent of the total weight of the trailer otherwise you'll have sway issues. If you are having sway now you'd actually want to increase the tongue weight as that should take care of the problem. If you are experiencing sway only when the weight distribution system is connected that's an odd issue to have...

  • How to Adjust Sway Control on the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    The adjustments to the springs bars on a Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System like part # BXW1000 is more for weight than sway.

  • Should Hitch Ball on WD System be Set to Height that Promotes Level Towing Prior to Engaging Arms
    Yes, very much so. With any WD system, even a Blue Ox SwayPro like part # BXW1000, you want to ensure that the hitch ball is sitting at a location the location that would promote a level towing experience.
