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 Spring Bars

Unlike other weight distribution systems, the SwayPro has automatically locking brackets throughout. Both spring bars insert, slotted side up, into the head assembly and then lock securely in place. Removal is just as easy - simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out. Blue Ox spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.


Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other 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.

I love the Blue OX. Much easier to use and maintain than the Equalizer, which is what I had previously. I think the BO is equal in effectiveness at sway control to the EQ but not sure because I'm now pulling a bigger trailer. The cam latch system with the BO is easy to use but you must raise the trailer tongue "to the sky" in order to release the tension from the load bars before releasing the chains. The load bars will slam down if you're not careful creating a hazard if you're not careful. 496829

I have had the Blue Ox BXW1003 for a year now and overall we are pretty happy with it. With our previous camper (Dutchmen) we were using a Draw-Tite WD hitch with a separate friction sway control bar. When we bought our new Jayco camper, we had a different A Frame design (underslug coupler) and it is a much bigger camper so we needed to upgrade the hitch. We liked chain style connection of the Draw-Tite but didn't like having to get out and remove the friction sway control bar when backing into a site. With the Blue Ox we just pull up to the site, someone hops out to guide clear the site as we back right in. It is nice to have a chain setup because there are times where I need more spring assist than others. For instance, we dry camp from time to time and have an A Frame Shelf above the propane tanks for our generator. The dealer recommended the Blue Ox over the equalizer because of this changing load requirement and it has worked. The only reasons I am not giving it 5 stars is because there are times where I have to fight with the release pin a bit. You have to turn the cam a bit to get it to release. It isn't a big deal and doesn't happen all the time but enough to stick in the back of my mind. The tool for turning the cam is a bit short and because of the A Frame shelf I have to be careful about where I put it on or as I turn the cam, it could pinch my hand up against the shelf mount. Like many people, I just got a big socket and breaker bar to replace the included tool. In my case I already had the breaker bar for torquing the wheels so I just needed a socket. Because the socket pivots it can't pinch your hand and is longer so more leverage. Also a drawback is because of the design, if we were get a new trailer that maybe doesn't use an underslung coupler, but the same weight as our current camper, we would have to buy a new hitch as well. This is because there are different models based on hitch type, where an Equalizer can be adjusted to accommodate either coupler style, the Blue Ox can't. Sure you could probably replace the parts needed to convert it or just buy a new one. This is a minor thing in my book and the nice part about this is that it makes it much easier to set up at home since there are not as many points of adjustment. If we didn't change our load frequently depending on where we are going and traded in campers every other year, then we would have been better off going with the Equalizer. For us the Blue Ox was the better fit. I will say that before buying I contacted Blue Ox's Customer Support as I had a question. I wanted to make sure I had the right model to work with the coupler on our camper. I was 80% sure I was right but didn't want to get there to pick it up and find out it wasn't the right one. Not only did they clear that up but the rep reached out to engineering and asked about my tow vehicle so they could verify that the included drop hitch was the right one. Which wasn't even a question that I had. 477291

Way too heavy for me to install. My son installed it. Once he figured out how to avoid being hurt when releasing chain, he was much happier with it. Drove all day in high winds and trailer swayed a little but it would have been MUCH worse without this WDH! I would not have driven that day without this product. 365698

I just received this yesterday, and will be using it this weekend to tow a 34 1/2' Toy Hauler home from Virginia. It is extremely heavy/well made and the powder coating looks like it was applied very well. Should be a great W.D. hitch system that will last for many years 310976

The Blue Ox SwayPro 1500 arrived today. Ordered online from eTrailer on Tuesday and delivered to West Michigan on Friday. FAST! etrailer service and support is always First Class. While heavy, the Blue Ox WDH was in perfect condition. The quality and appearance of the Clue Ox is great. The hitch is powder coated and very clean. I 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. Our new TT was delivered to our dealer while our state is in lockdown. There it sits until May 1. I will update review after install and first trip. With all the changes in the world... very happy to purchase a product Made in U.S.A. 777044

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I purchased the Blue Ox Sway Pro (15,000 lbs GTW) clamp on to pull my 14K tilt bed PJ T6 trailer. The trailer is a 6 inch C channel frame trailer. I worked with Troy who was very helpful and assured me that I would get the Blue Ox in time for a trip within the next 4 days. The shipping was very fast and I received it in just 2 days. However, I did not understand the clamp on set up is only for box framed trailers. Therefore the clamp on lift brackets would not work correctly. I did not see this information anywhere on the site regarding which trailer frame type is right for the various setups (box or C channel). I called Etrailer after finding this out and was told I could purchase the bolt on lift brackets separately but I would basically eat the ones I had. So my weight distribution hitch would now cost me NOT HAPPY. Be sure to ask about the type of lift bracket attachment for your trailer frame type. 438432

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


In the box are two 12 SWL 3300lbs quick link shackles. Not shown in parts or instructions. Do these have a purpose? Also the 12mm threads on the clamp-on rotating latches for the tightening bolts were painted, thus the bolts would not screw into the clamp. I had to use a tap to clean out the threads. Other than the above the unit seem to be good and heavy duty. 598548


Comments
It does the job but is very heavy due to the hitch being the largest they make. You need to be careful attaching and detaching the spring arms. I found the best way is to raise the trailer as high as possible when attached to the truck hitch. This relieves the tension enough to make install and removal of spring arms easier. The install video showed 3 exposed chain links when attaching spring arms. I have found 4 is better.

The BEST Purchase I've made thus far!! Once I installed the new hitch system I can honestly say it made a 100% difference! I have a Mercedes ML500 and I pull a 17' Forest River Wildwood X-lite travel trailer. There is no more sag in the middle, both tow vehicle and trailer are level driving down the road and my SUV handles almost as if there is no trailer on the back! I HIGHLY Reccomend the "Blue Ox" System! It's the best! 513835


Comments
Still The BEST Purchase Ive made thus far for my trailer! Now that I have used it multiple times, I can say its a life saver in so many ways. My tow vehicle is stable on the road, breaking, maneuvering, the weight distribution has been key for me with a smaller set up and the Blue Ox continues to deliver. I Still HIGHLY Recommend the Blue Ox System to everyone!!

After purchasing/pulling my my 32’ weekend warrior with the supplied sway control, I was terrified by the amount of sway I was experiencing after fully loading with the toys. This Blue Ox tamed the beast 99%. Be mindful on how you distribute your load weight when overstuffing your toy hauler and you’ll have zero issues. Great product!! 716511

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I decided to give a SwayPro hitch a try when I purchased a new TT (37' TT). The previous two Equalizer hitchs (24' TT and 33' TT) I had owned worked fine, but I hated having to stop and get out to tighten/loosen the anti-sway device when having to maneuver around and they were noisy. I installed the SwayPro myself, it was very easy to do. The instructions are clear, and the online videos very helpful. I waited to make this review until after making a couple of trips with the trailer. The trailer is very locked in behind the vehicle and that sucking over as a large vehicle goes past was non-existent, was very surprised and happy. I expected a little of this since this trailer is taller and longer than my last ones. Love being able to remove the equalizer bars and store in the trailer compartment without worrying about getting grease everywhere. Super easy to get hooked up and ready to go. I spent a few dollars more getting the SwayPro. Every extra dollar was worth every penny, this is a great hitch design with many advantages, wish this had been my first equalizer type hitch. 567629

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Have only used it to drive 15 miles from my trailer dealer to home, but I think I'm going to like this WDH. It seems to do the job, is relatively easy to use. The dealer I bought my trailer from mounted it for me, they'd done many before so it went quickly. Some hints I'd learned from them and discussion forums - use the trailer jack to lift the front of the trailer/back of the truck to make it easier and safer to install or remove the chains. Use a long breaker bar with a 1" socket for the same reason - the extra leverage over that with the tool supplied with the hitch helps. I painted the chain link on each side that the dealer hooked to so I could get the tension back the way they had it. Will have to see how that works out in the long run, may have to adjust up or down. FWIW, I measured the distance from the ground to the top of the front and rear fender wells on my truck before and after hooking up the trailer with the BO Sway Pro. The front ended up exactly where it was before, the rear dropped only one inch with 1000 lbs of hitch weight. I'd say the WDH is doing its job! 462535


Comments
Ive replaced the 1 socket with a 26mm socket, as it fits better. Only snag we are running into is that the u-bolts that hold the chains to the arms are being bent and worn down from occasional ground scrapes. Ive purchased a pair of the little u-bolts and four self locking nuts from e-trailer, so Ill be prepared if they ever do rub or break off completely.

I had the unfortunate experience with having your new airstream 20' taken out by a hydroplaning car last month. The airstream rolled right and on to its side, and the hitch released keeping our Suburban from rolling. The stabilizer bars and chains maintained the trailer connection and eased the stop with the rear tires of ground. The hitch bent the receiver on the truck, and the only damage appeared to be one " sprung" spring bar. A good result from a bad experience! 237404

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I have both an Equalizer and this Blue Ox hitch. I purchased the Blue Ox after I complained of a poor ride with my travel trailer to the dealer. They recommended Blue Ox instead. Frankly it didn't improve the ride at all. Worse, the bars hung so low that they scraped on every speed bump. However this was exacerbated by the way I had to set it up to make the ride at least tolerable. I have now changed travel trailers and tried both hitches on the new one. The new travel trailer sits significantly higher and rides much better. I don't have the problem of the bars hitting the ground. The ride also seems much better then when I use the Equalizer. The final problem I have with this hitch is the that saddle that holds the chains seems to stick very frequently and requires that I release the pin and force it to release the chain with the provided wrench - resulting in frequent minor injuries. Not sure why this happens but I'm getting better at forcing the release with no injuries. Just irritating. 289769

  • Determining if Underslung Weight Distribution System is Needed for Trailer
    The primary difference between the standard Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW1000 and the Blue Ox # BXW1003 that is designed for underslung couplers simply has to do with the reduced ground clearance that you would have with an underslung coupler. The weight distribution head for the underslung model features a different angle where the hitch ball mounts, which allows trailers with this type of coupler to use the system without having any clearance issues with the spring...

  • Is There a Weight Distribution System that Will Fit an 8 inch Tall Trailer Frame
    I have a solution for you but the Reese Weight Distribution w/out Shank # RP66021 that you referenced won't work well for you due to how tall your frame is. So what you'll need to do is install an under slung coupler on your trailer like the # CA-5335-B which basically gives you a coupler that attaches to the bottom of the trailer frame so that you can use a weight distribution system designed for underslung coupler like the # BXW1003 which has a tongue weight range of 750-1,000 lbs.

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with 700 lb Tongue Weight
    If you have a Blue Ox weight distribution system rated for up to 1,500 lb tongue weight and your actual tongue weight is 700 lbs you are most likely going to have a harsh ride quality. Keep in mind that the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the truck needs to count as tongue weight too. A better rated system for you would be the part # BXW1003 which has a tongue weight range of 750-1,000 lbs. For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball to use with this we have the part # 19286 also.

  • Weight Distribution for 6,161 Pound Trailer with Underslung Coupler
    To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Based on the dry tongue weight of 675 pounds you will probably need a system rated for up to 1,000 pounds once the trailer is loaded and ready to tow. For a 1,000 pound system for a trailer with an underslung...

  • Weight Distribution System For Trailer With Underslung Coupler
    I have an option for you but the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32218 is not compatible with under slung couplers because the spring bars will not allow for proper ground clearance. I recommend to use Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1003 which is designed for under slung couplers with a specially designed angled weight distribution head. This can be used with a receiver sleeve. The spring bars of the Blue Ox system are rated between...
