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.

I’m not very happy with my purchase. The weight distribution hitch I purchased does not fit on my trailer. There is a welded support bracket right where the hitch bracket is supposed to go 29 inches back on my trailer. Can the bracket go further back or does it need to go right above the chain? I’ve attached a photo of my issue.


Comments
Yes this blue ox weight distribution system part # BXW1006 does require the brackets to be positioned 29 inches from the hitch ball. Since you have a support bar where the bracket does need to be positioned this weight distribution system will not work for your trailer. I recommend the equalizer system part # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$737.12
. The sway control brackets on the equalizer system can be positioned 27 inches to 32 inches back from the coupler. It handles tongue weight from 700 to 900 pounds and will still allow for backing up. It also includes the 2 5/16 inch ball and shank.

This PROSWAY hitch awesome! Set up was easy and the towing experience was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this product. Also, George at e-trailer made sure that we had the hitch in time to pick up our new toy hauler! Thanks for such amazing service. This set-up is great for a lifted pickup. The BXW gave us the right amount of adjustment for our lifted Dodge 2500!

Working perfectly!! This is so easy to connect We see others struggling and thank goodness we bought the Blue Ox!!

The product is exactly what was described. Assembly and installation was easy. All parts worked perfectly. The only reason for 4 stars is that the packaging was inappropriate. Box was literally falling apart. Delivery person could barely get it to the house as parts were beginning to fall out. Thankfully nothing was missing, but packaging for shipping needs improvement.

Had to replace this hitch due to ineffective sway control. Although, some issue may have been with a new lightweight trailer with low hitch weight.

Using it on a RAM 2500 towing a 8000 pound 25 ft Airstream. No sway at all. I like the simplicity and ease of tensioning sway bars. Paint finish could be more durable and mine has rusted, but functionality is not impacted. Would recommend.

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


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


The hitch came very quickly and was well packaged. I was surprised to find an upgraded chain tool and 20k lbs ball already attached to the hitch. The reason I have four stars was there was not option to select a longer shank length. So, $[XX] dollars later I was able to get an extended shank for my 3/4 ton truck.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


The product is well built, easy to install and tows great. The downside is the chains. Before upgrading to a new trailer, I got rid of the standard chain style weight distribution bars and went to the square bar style. After getting a new trailer, my 14k bar style wasn't rated for the tongue weight and I had to upgrade to this. The new trailer is only 14k loaded but has a 2k pound tongue weight. This is the only hitch on the market that would carry the tongue weight and I am back to chains. They are difficult to deal with and if you dont have the tongue jack taking most of the pressure off of them, the wrench to release the chains can get away from you. If somebody make a chain less unit, I would get away from this.


Comments
Great product, absolutely no issues with it. However, the chains still stink and wish they had a better alternative for this heavy hitch.

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.


Comments
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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


We have a 23 foot Airstream we pull with a Suburban and use the Blue Ox Sway distribution hitch. We purchased this a year ago and went on 10 weekend trips last summer 6 of them over the continental divide in Colorado. This summer we have been on 3 weekend trips and once over the continental divide. We have many more trips planned. The hitch is easy to hook up and was easy to install. Etrailer was great at helping getting the correct size bars. We have pulled the trailer in rain and winds and feel very secure in any road condition we have encountered. No issues with backing up. Nice hitch I recommend it.


Comments
We have a 23 foot Airstream we with the suburban for 3 seasons now with the Blue Ox Sway Hitch. We go every weekend somewhere in Colorado. Drove through New Mexico for Christmas. That is a windy state. I did not know the wind was blowing so hard until we stop and get out. Must be working. I did put a piece if tape on the part that turns so I can see where the wrench goes and on the chain link. This helps with hooking and unhooking for reference. Enjoy.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I put this on my trailer as soon as I bought it (Coachman Apex Nano 194BHS) so I can't say how it would drive without it. But it is a very solid and well crafted system. No weird popping noises from it, which is what I didn't like about solid bar systems. Installed quickly and easily (watch the etrailer install video!) Mine came with the new hefty tire iron like wrench (instead of the flat knuckle buster). Seems like a huge improvement, absolutely a necessary upgrade for such a premium product

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

I've driven over 11,000 miles this year, through snow, rain, and gusty winds and have no troubles with this hitch system. Just love it. The finish has chipped off, and in those areas, rust is developing. Otherwise a very good product.


Comments
Hi Douglas, Thanks for your feedback! With the powder coating being chipped off, I would recommend cleaning the rust off and applying a rust resistant paint to the bare metal. This will help prevent the rust from spreading. I have attached a helpful article that goes into better detail.

I have been using the Blue Ox SwayPro WD Hitch for 1,500 tongue weight on our 30' Arctic Fox travel trailer for one year now. No regrets as this hitch has been an easy to setup and use and it seems to do it's job nicely. Due to the height of our trailer's hitch I ordered a Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank to use with the SwayPro and the pair work great together.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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!

This is the item that I ordered. The box the hitch was in had damage at both ends at at 3 of the corners. Thank God there was packing tape on the ends --- seems like the tape is what was holding the box together. Your shipping department needs to do a much better job of packing a heavy item like this. Per the installation instructions, it looks like I might need the 9 hole shank instead of the 7 hole shank. I need to confirm this with a knowledgeable employee before I try to complete the installation.

Total tongue weight is calculated by adding the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer to any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. As long as your total tongue weight does not exceed 1,000 lbs then I recommend using the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # BXW1006....

  • What is the Correct Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for a 2019 Grand Design TT
    The correct Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for you is most likely part # BXW1006 which is rated for 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs of total tongue weight. This system was chosen based off of the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer. The total tongue weight is composed of the loaded tongue weight of the trailer and the weight of any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. This system in particular also comes with a longer shank which will most likely be needed...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Trailer with Unloaded Tongue Weight 640 lbs
    For a Blue Ox weight distribution system the part # BXW1006 would be a great option for the unloaded tongue weight you mentioned since by the time it's loaded up it would be up into it's range of 750-1,000 lbs. If you wanted my favorite recommendation though it would be the Strait Line part # RP66084 which has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs and features best sway control at preventing sway before it starts.

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1006 Recommendation for 2007 Ram
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1006 would work well for your as long as your loaded tongue weight (including the weight of any cargo behind rear axle of truck) is near 1,000 lbs but not over it. The amount of rise/drop your setup calls for would fall well within the range of what the shank that comes with this kit is capable of. For a hitch ball you would want the part # 19286.

  • Difference Between Blue Ox # BLU66FR and Blue Ox # BXW1006 Weight Distribution & Sway Control Hitch
    The difference between these two systems is the included shank. The Blue Ox # BLU66FR shank has 9 adjustment holes allowing for a 7.8 inch drop to a 14.72 inch rise, where as the Blue Ox # BXW1006 has a 11 hole shank allowing for a 7 inch drop to a 13 inch rise. So they are nearly identical. To measure drop/rise, measure from the top/inside of the truck receiver to the bottom of the coupler. Since the measurement you supplied was to the top of the coupler we need to subtract 2" to...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for 5000 lb Travel Trailer
    The 570 lb figure you mention is the dry tongue weight, but in order to choose the correct weight distribution system for your needs you'll need to determine the travel trailer's tongue weight when it's loaded up as it would be when you tow it, complete with gear, propane, water tanks, etc. You'll also want to add the weight of anything carried in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle to that figure, which is the amount of tongue weight you'll be asking your W/D system to handle. I'll...

  • Recommended Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution for Towing a GVWR 7,475 Trailer with a 2017 Ram 2500
    When determining what rise/drop you need for a towing setup you just take the height from the ground to top of the inside of the receiver on your tow vehicle and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler (when it is level). In your case it sounds like you need a drop of 3-1/2" with a max of 5-1/2" if you were just measuring to the top of your trailer coupler. The Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW0756 you referenced actually has a max drop of 7" so it would allow your towing setup...

  • Recommended Replacement Shank for Blue Ox Sway Control With Larger Rise or Drop
    To use the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1000 with a vehicle that has a different height, you don't need to replace the entire system, you just may need a longer shank for increased rise or drop. I recommend using the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 12" Long - 9 Hole Adjustment # BXW4003.

  • Difference Between Underslung and Overslung Coupler For Weight Distribution System
    An underslung trailer coupler is one that attaches to the bottom of the trailer frame and an overslung one is one that attaches to the top of the frame. Measuring is not required if you just take a look at your coupler and see where it attaches to the frame. The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - Underslung - 10K GTW, 1K TW part # BXW1003 is for weight distribution systems that have coupler that attach to the bottom of the frame. While the Blue Ox SwayPro...

  • Is Shorter Shank Available for Blue Ox BXW1006 SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    Since the bolt hole spacing is a standard 1-1/4 inches on center, you could certainly use the # BXW4000 shank in place of the one included with the # BXW1006 SwayPro system.

  • Blue Ox SwayPro VS TrackPro Weight Distribution System
    I would recommend that Blue Ox TrackPro # BLU77FR simply because it does not have lift chains like the SwayPro # BXW1006. Both will do a great job but the TrackPro will have a little less movement because of the absence of drop chains. Blue Ox is a popular brand and most other competitors are around the same quality if not a little less.

  • Can Trailer be Backed Up With Curt MV Weight Distribution System Installed
    The Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17052 does allow you to back up, however it doesn't include sway control with it. To add that you would need a friction sway control unit like the Curt # 17200 but by adding this you wouldn't be able to back up without initially disconnecting the friction sway control. If you are looking for a chain style weight distribution (WD) system then we have the Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW1006 which integrates the anti-sway so you don't have to worry about...

  • Which Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System is Correct for a Jayco Jay Flight SLX 8 267BHS
    The tongue weight of your 2019 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 8 267BHS I estimate to be between 700 and 1,000 lbs while loaded. That said, if you want to be exact then we have the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780 for this exact purpose. It sounds like you are trying to find the proper Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution for this trailer and if that is the case then I recommend part # BXW1006 which is rated for up to 1,000 lbs and comes with the part # BXW4007.

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System Offering 3 Inches of Drop for Travel Trailer and 2016 Ram

For example, if you need a system that is rated for up to 1,500 pounds tongue weight and 15,000 pounds towing weight, the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution with Sway Control, 13 Inch Rise/7-1/2Inch Drop # BXW1506.
