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.

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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


One year later and we logged a few thousand miles pulling our Rockwood Mini-lite with the Blue Ox Sway-Pro. It took a little getting used to the chain hookup but once you do it a couple of times it’s pretty easy. The hitch is awesome. It has great weight redistribution and the trailer has never swayed once. Even in strong cross winds. Very pleased with this purchase and with e-trailers price and tutorial video. They are my go to for all things towing.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I have no experience with other WDH's but this unit does what I expect it to do. I pull a 33' 7,500# Jayco trailer and it allows me to move the weight as needed to the front axle and it seems to control sway very well. I originally used this with an F-150 that was exceeding my rear axle rating so it was crucial that I get the weight shifted forward which this unit did well. I have since moved up to an F-250 so it is not nearly as critical but it still makes the trips pleasant. This unit is specific to underslung couplers like Jayco uses. Also being able to back the trailer without disengaging the WDH is an advantage over some of the other brands. The action of the chains during disconnect can be intimidating and dangerous until you get accustomed to the process. The one complaint I have is not with the unit itself but the wrench that is provided to load and unload the chains. It is flat (hurts your hand) and too short to get adequate leverage. I suggest you use an 18-24" cheater bar with a 1" socket to load/unload the chains. Otherwise very happy with the purchase

Love Blue Ox products. We have to their heavy duty tow vehicle tow bar as well. Simple installation and use. Works like a charm on the road with no popping or orher noises when turning. Didn’t notice any sway on the way home towing a 10,000 lb toyhauler. Love it so far.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


First I have to recognize and thank the excellent etrailer customer service. The etrailer team contacted me immediately to address an order issue, and did so quickly. The BXW1500 arrived in a timely manner, and the only issue was the shipping/handling by UPS. The box was rather beat-up, and the chains were hanging out, but all of the product was intact and we had no issue with install. The ride is significantly better than the previous hitch from the dealer (R3 Recurve), and I have noted improved distribution across the axles at the scales. Previous setup was a lesser bar rating, and we determined the tongue weight and cargo was at the higher end of the bar. As such, we chose the 1500 lb TW bars. The BXW1500 material and build quality is quite impressive, particularly in comparison to the previous hitch. Vehicle and trailer is: 2015 Silverado 1500 with Max-Trailering Package and a 2020 GD Imagine 2800BH.

Easy installation after purchasing a couple of specific tools: A big adjustable wrench, a Torque wrench and a 1 1/2 socket to be able to remove and reinstall the hitch ball. Easy to follow instructions. Plan to test it during a trip this weekend.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I've installed the hitch but not yet used it. However, it's all that they say it is -- sturdy, easy to install and I expect that it will last me many years. I especially like the fact that the bars can easily be removed and that they are not greased as I also purchased a set of 1500 lb bars for use when the trailer is at max and will use these 750 lb bars when the trailer is empty or lightly loaded.


Comments
Pulled my trailer weighing nearly 10,000 lbs from NY to Houston TX. The hitch performed perfectly and kept the trailer under control in fact I barely knew it was behind me. I used the 1500 lb bars on the way there and the 750 lb bars on the way back when the trailer was empty. Im 100 happy with this purchase!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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!!!

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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I can't say enough about the great support I have received from etrailer. After ordering the wrong hitch(my fault), the team at etrailer got me squared away. Kyle, Angela, Lazer made the swap up to a 750 pound spring bar unit seamless! The return and the new hitch went off with no problem. A word of advice when buying a hitch. Better to measure your tongue weight yourself rather than relying on the spec sheets from the manufacturer. Mine was advertised as 240 pounds when in reality it was 462. That's with everything out of the storage compartment, unit level and without the propane tank and battery.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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
$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.

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Finally got around to installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro hitch with bolt on chain latches. The process was straight forward after viewing youtube vids, taking time to be sure all my measurements were correct. With the bolt on chain latches you do not get many chances to get it right. I could not use clamp on as my V-nose RV did not have room above the frame to clear the clamp on latch.. drilling was a pain as clearances on my frame were tight and I had to go around a electrical junction box on the inside of the frame.. but once on, it was a breeze to set up. The overall quality of the hitch was great and I don't miss having to set the angle of the hitch head (it's fixed) making the only adjustments necessary was hitch height and chain length. I initially set mine up using 9 links on the chain, but once I got out on the road, I noted the RV was riding nose low so I went up to 10 links on the chain. Now the truck and RV are level, the truck rides and handles as I expected. I have not had the rig out on a long haul, so I can't comment about the sway control of the hitch.Truck is a 2013 Ford F150 ecoboost, max tow 3.73 gears, rv is a 6600lb (empty) V-nose 25ft toy hauler. I like the chain latch set up. Easy to use especially on a V-nose trailer. The concept of sway control with the short length chain is feasible and after this week trip (with some interstate time), I will report back if it doesn't work as advertised. All in all I am happy with the hitch and of course happy with the eTrailer purchasing process.


Comments
A year later and we have used this hitch many, many times and couldnt be happier with the purschase. Hook up is a breeze. Have had the chance on several occasions to get on the Interstate with the big trucks and wind and the sway control works. I am very pleased with the hitch. Thanks Blue Ox and eTrailer!

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.


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.

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.

Product arrives in excellent condition, all parts included. Service was excellent which brings me to the loss of 1 star. Hitch ball was purchased however etrailer will not mount and in the Blue Ox requires a socked to tighten the recessed nut to 450 ft lbs It would have been nice to have received the until with hitch ball mounted and torqued to spec. Now I’m waiting for my [online box store] order to arrive. In addition I informed the sales person I needed a 15k ball he chose the long shank version. Don’t know yet but I hope my ordered socket will have enough depth to complete the install or another ball or socket will have to be resourced.

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch

  • 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.

    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...

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.

  • Pole Tongue Adapter and Blue Ox Weight Distribution that Can Be Used B and B Deck Over Trailer
    The Blue Ox Pole Tongue Adapter part # BXW4023 does fit your frame dimensions and capacity so it would work well with the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW2000 which has a 20k capacity like you are wanting. The clamps would then go over the top of the pole tongue adapter and clamp to them. Then for a cushioned weight distribution shank you'd want the part # 325-GH-1302 for if you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch.

  • How to Determine Best Weight Distribution System
    No, if you use a weight distribution system on your trailer that is rated higher than you need, your trailer will be bouncing. In order to choose the best weight distribution system you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR but you'll want to verify...

  • Best Weight Distribution System for I-Beam Trailers with GTW up to 20,000 Lbs
    In order to choose the correct weight distribution system, you will need to find the total tongue weight (TTW) of your towing setup by adding the tongue weight (TW) of both your loaded ready to tow trailer and any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The average TW rating of a trailer is typically 10-15% of the gross trailer weight (GTW). An easy way to find this would involve using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780. When...

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Clamp-On Underslung Weight Distribution for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
    All of the Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems come with the shank. To add a 2-1/2 inch shank that will work with the SwayPro system I recommend # EQ90-02-4900 which will work very well. Or you could use SwayPro system # BXW2003 which comes with the 2-1/2 inch shank and is rated for up to 2,000 pounds tongue weight. For a 2-5/16 inch ball I recommend # 63840. I have included some helpful links on weight distribution for you.

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution System for 14,000 Pound Trailer
    The maximum tongue weight capacity for the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Bars is 1200 pounds, which is unfortunately not enough to support your 14,000 pound load (with a potential tongue weight between 1400 and 2100 pounds). You will need to get a new system to support the larger load. I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro, part # BXW2003. It's rated up to 2,000 pounds and has built in sway control. It's made for hitches with a receiver of 2-1/2 inches, so be sure that you have that opening....

  • 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. This is made specifically for use with a weight distribution system and would basically replace shank included with the WD system. 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. When picking out a weight distribution...
