Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

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
  • Have a really heavy-duty trailer with an underslung coupler and 1,500 lbs – 2,000 lbs of tongue weight
  • Hate the loud scraping and popping of other hitches with built-in sway control

No, if you:

  • Have a trailer with a C-channel frame or a crossmember that could interfere with the clamp-on brackets
  • Tow with a vehicle where the hitch is less than 13" from the ground
Shank fits 2-1/2" hitches and offers up to an 8" rise and a 2" drop. System uses optimal points of tension to help prevent sway while it balances your trailer's load for a more level ride.

  • 2-5/16" Hitch Ball
  • Lift Brackets
  • 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.

Easy to use and provides the best weight distribution and sway control.


Significantly better than the one the RV dealer sold us with the camper. 2000# hitch handles the 39 foot toyhauler flawlessly. Lots of adjustment ability with it.


Very nice product. Extremely heavy duty and powder coat finish is great! Thank you e-trailer for the videos and for getting the product out the door quickly.


Have been using this hitch for one year now. We have had zero issues, it is easy to use. Satisfied!


Everything came just fine. My hitch is on and working. Thank you.

I actually had to get a different product however it worked fine on a smaller trailer
Gary - 08/04/2022


These folks put customer service first, parts were missing in shipment, without hesitation they had new parts coming, no hassle. Great team of people to work with!


Haven't opened the product yet, but etrailer's service was phenomenal. It took less than 5 minutes to order the product, and within an hour of the purchase I got an email saying the hitch had shipped. I was expecting a delay with the current events taking place, but I was shocked to have the hitch on my porch the very next day.


The individual I worked with over the phone was extremely helpful. The shipping was rapid. Have not put it together so obviously not used as yet. From the appreciated service received I have every reason it will accomplish my goals.


Very well made easy installation seems to work well on short test drive will know more when I travel the Interstate highway

Have put about 5500 miles on this hitch couldnt be happier 38 ft trailer tracks stright no sway

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

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.


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!

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


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.

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.

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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch

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.

After one year the hitch still is working great! I did some minor chain adjustments to my original setup and it works better now I went one link tighter
Edward - 08/27/2022


Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch

Another positive shopping experience with 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.

  • Spring Bar Ground Clearance Estimate for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    That's a hard number to give as there are variables that will change what that dimension will be like how tall the frame is, how much spring bar tension is needed etc. You fine tune the spring bar tension for the setup based on the tongue weight of the trailer/tow vehicle which affects the angle that the bars need to point at as well as how many links will be used. It could easily hang 6 inches below or even taller than that. In general though trunnion bar setups like this have better ground...

    We always recommend running trailer tires at the rated cold PSI number found on the sidewall.

You'll want to check the PSI rating on your driver's side door jamb as well as your owner's manual to make sure you've got your tires inflated properly on your tow vehicle.

So if you have a standard coupler use the kit 2000 but if you have an underslung coupler use the kit 2003. I'm not sure which exact model trailer you have but most have standard couplers. If you send me a photo of your coupler I can tell you if it's a standard or underslung coupler.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Attitude 32GSG with 1,700 lb Tongue Weight
    For a hitch weight of 1,700 lbs you'd need a higher rated system than a Straitline with a 1,700 lb max tongue weight. You'd need a system like the Blue Ox part # BXW2003 which has a tongue weight range of 1,500 to 2,000 lbs since you need the tongue weight of your trailer to fall within the range of the system. For a hitch ball you'd then want the part # 63840.

  • Gen-Y Shank for use with Weight Distribution System on 2015 Suburban LTZ with Max Trailer Package
    The Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount # 325-GH-1224 would work for your application but I recommend the Gen-Y Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1202.

It features a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 lbs and is rated for tongue weight from 1,200 lbs to 1,700 lbs. Check out the video linked below for more details.

  • What Hitch Ball Does Blue Ox Weight Distribution System Use?
    For the weight distribution hitches from Blue Ox that have a gross towing weight of 20,000 lbs, # BXW2000 and # BXW2003 you only need a hitch ball with either a 1" or 1-1/4" diameter shank. For a 2" hitch ball you can use # 63845 and for a 2-5/16" hitch ball you can use # 63847. To put it on the system, you only need to slide the ball into the hitch head and tighten it. If you go to 5:45 of the linked video review you can see exactly how to install the hitch ball.

  • Replacement U-Bolt for Blue Ox Weight Distribution Spring Bars
    For a replacement U-bolt for the Blue Ox weight distribution systems we have the # BX201-0758. For new nuts you'd need the part # BX202-0090 and for washers # BX203-0003. It's not common for the U-bolt to wear out like this but if you are in a really dusty climate or any other type of area that would allow dirt/debris to easily get into that U-bolt and grind it down that might be the cause. You could try keeping the u-bolt as clean as possible to see if that helps.
