Yes, if you:

  • Have a trailer with 750 lbs – 1,000 lbs of tongue weight that only experiences occasional sway
  • Hate the loud scraping and popping of other hitches with built-in sway control
  • Have a taller tow vehicle that'll require a decent drop

No, if you:

  • Have a trailer with a C-channel frame or a crossmember that could interfere with the clamp-on brackets
  • Have a significant amount of sway on a regular basis and need something that can really hold your trailer in line
Shank fits 2" hitches and offers up to a 13" rise and a 7" drop. System uses optimal points of tension to help prevent sway while it balances your trailer's load for a more level ride.

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.

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. 699569

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. 579199


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
$657.95
. 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! 520938

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

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. 777044

This is a wonderful product. We pulled a 25 travel trailer on a long trip last year and I didnt have to worry about any sway on any road. The Blue Ox handles cross winds easy also. Very easy to use, I wouldnt buy anything else!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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

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


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


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.

I have had the Blue Ox 2,000 lbs WD hitch for a little over 1 year. My previous WD hitch was under capacity based on the tongue weight of my 37 ft travel trailer. This hitch has greatly improved the pulling stability of my trailer over the previous set-up. It has exceeded my expectations. 451573

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! 237404

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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2014 Airstream International
    In order to choose the correct weight distribution system for your 2014 Airstream International and your 2016 Ford F-250 we will need to find your total tongue weight (TTW). 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....

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 a Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution system that will offer you 3 inches of drop, you will want to use a SwayPro system that comes with the longer weight distribution shank. 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. This system is designed for tongue weights between 1,000 - 1,500 pounds and offers a maximum 7-1/2...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Wiring, and Weight Distribution for 2013 Nissan Armada 4x4
    For your 2013 Nissan Armada, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13188. This will be able to tow your trailer with 1 horse without weight distribution, but you will most likely need the weight distribution system for 2 or 3 horses. It will also help with sway control, so I would use it no matter the number of horses. For your wiring, if you don't have the factory 7 way, I recommend the Upgraded Modulite Vehicle Wiring Harness Kit with 4 Pole Trailer Connector # 119147KIT...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for V-nose trailer and Short Pole Tongue A-Frame Trailer
    There is not an easy bolt on option for your short pole tongue into A-frame or V-nose trailer. You will need to do some frame customization to ensure a proper fit on each trailer. There is not a system we carry that will work without customization of your frames. For the most economical option, I recommend the Pro Series Weight Distribution System # 49570 with Friction Sway Control # 83660. The friction bar of this system needs to be mounted 24 inches back from the center of the hitch...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a Boat Trailer with a Surge Brake Actuator
    I spoke with my contact at Curt who said he was not aware of any brake actuator problems related to use with their weight distribution systems that utilize steel-on-steel friction, # C17500. However, you may want to consider a system that does not use steel-on-steel friction because your brake actuator may be struggling to overcome the resistance between the spring bar and the frame bracket. If resistance is the issue, then changing to a different brake actuator might not have much of...
