Weight Distributing Hitch

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.

I use this to pull a camper and it works great. etrailer has been great to order from and they have very good products. I have ordered several items since i ordered this hitch from them. Give them a chance, they will do you right.

The hitch has worked great. etrailer has been really good to buy from.



by:

I had an L shaped weight distribution hitch before I bought this Curt model from E trailer.If you the coop ape the two the older one wS easier to operate. The Pins that lock the chain brackets in please are difficult to remove and adding wd40 does not help also this new one seems to be lower to the ground,, making me bend over and sometimes or even get to my knees to hook it up .My wife used to be able to help me with the older one the new one she is not able so I do both sides myself . Also the part that connects to the truck you need to hold it sideways then flip the the release up and maneuver it he top 2 tabs into place , lot more work than the L shaped one I had. It’s ok otherwise.

Happy with the product. Had the trailer company set up the hitch on my Tundra with out a hitch!!! Ha.

Still working great!!!



by:

Your torsion bar hitch and service were impecable. The people at Husky Cargo trailer in Florida that built the car hauler should take lessons on how to build a trailer and treat paying customers.



by:

My weight distribution hitch worked perfectly. It was very easy to install and the instructions made it simple to adjust for the weight I was pulling. The sway control that I received was great as well holding me steady on the highway, even with strong cross-winds. An impressive product that I would definitely recommend.



by:

I have a 2016 F150 4x4 that I leveled and I'm pulling a V-nose enclosed car trailer. The shank that came with the hitch won't allow me to level the trailer. So I ordered a 12 inch drop shank to allow me to level the trailer. I thought the one came with it would work . I will give further review once I receive the new shank.



by:

I’ve used this hitch as and RV Transporter for a year now and this is a great weight distribution hitch at a great price!



by:

have has this hitch for over a year now and have had zero issues. It is used exclusively to pull my 28 foot travel trailer. Heavy duty and easy to use.



by:

Installed on 14,500 rated trailer pulled 1400 miles round trip no issues, no sway, truck and trailer leveled out for a smooth ride.



by:

Works Great, excellent service



by:

Easier to use then another brand. Only problem was that somehow I bent one of torsion bar retaining clips. Was afraid I would ruin it trying to straighten it out but didn't. I use a colored zip tie to mark the proper chain link to eliminate guessing.



by:

Unfortunately, I have not been able to put my new towing system to use yet. However, the product was delivered very quickly, and shipping was free. Very satisfied with how easily the parts were to assemble. Great experience, so far, with etrailer.com



by:

works great!



by:

I appreciate that the hitch was sent out within a few hours of it being ordered.



by:

Like your product, but the packaging leaves a lot to be desired. This is the second one we bought and both were delivered in broken damaged boxes. Luckily all the parts were there. Thanks for the quick delivery.



by:

I ordered the wrong system and had to order longer bars, they worked perfectly.

See what our Experts say about this CURT Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a Starcraft Centennial Trailer and 2007 Honda Odyssey
    The Reese system # C17322 that you have referenced is for trailers that have a tongue weight capacity between 800 and 1,000 pounds. This system is probably too heavy for your pop up trailer and you will experience a stiff ride. From the research I did, the camper will have a tongue weight of around 375 pounds. You then need to add to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the van to get the total tongue weight. I recommend a system that is rated for 200 to 600 pounds...

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution on 2009 Chevy Trailblazer Towing Jayco 4,600-Lb Trailer
    Since the towing capacity of your 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer is 5,200 lbs and you are towing a 4,600-lb dry weight trailer, you will want to be careful and not overload the trailer with extra cargo that might put you over the 5,200-lb limit. Also, when loading the trailer make sure to load 60 percent of the cargo closer to the front (tongue) of the trailer. This will also help with sway control of the trailer. For your 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer 4WD towing a 5,200-lb trailer the tongue...

  • Curt Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 600 lbs Tongue Weight
    For a tongue weight of 600 lbs the Curt WD System part # C17341 would be a better option. This system has a tongue weight max of 800 lbs so it would be a better fitting system. For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball you would then want the part # A-6. The part # C17322 would technically work, but since it is rated a bit too high you would end up with a harsher ride quality than the # C17341. Both systems will allow backing up. You could weld on a 1/2 inch spacer to your trailer and the frame brackets...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Small Enclosed 2700 lb Trailer
    Anytime the trailer's weight will be greater than half the weight of the vehicle, using a weight distribution hitch is recommended. Having the trailer's tongue weight compress the rear suspension of the vehicle unloads the front suspension which throws off the aim of your headlights and can negatively affect braking and steering performance. If the hitch on your Edge is rated for weight distribution (check the capacity on the sticker placed on the hitch. It should list a GTW and a Weight...

    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.

  • Adjusting Weight Distribution System to Apply More Tongue Weight to Front Tow Vehicle Axle
    To determine if you have the correct system for your trailer tongue weight, you should determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. The weight of any gear stowed behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle also needs to be considered as tongue weight. I have linked you to an FAQ article that shows a few ways to determine the tongue weight. You will need to ensure that the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer does not exceed the 1,000 lb maximum...

  • Backing Up Trailer While Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control
    Pro Series does not recommend that you back up your trailer while using the Pro Series Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control, # PS49582 and # 83660. The reason behind this is that there is a very good possibility that the sway control system will bind up while backing up the trailer and this could damage your system. There is a quick and easy fix though. When you need to back up the trailer, you will need to switch the sway control lever to the off position, pull two clips,...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Boat Trailer with 800 lbs Tongue Weight and Surge Brakes
    When picking out a weight distribution system the most important factor to consider is the loaded tongue weight which includes the the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle. Since your trailer has surge brakes you cannot use a weight distribution system with friction sway control or dual-cam sway control. Because of that I would recommend you go with a Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution system # RP66560 rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight. You will also likely need a pole...

  • Determining Correct Weight Distribution System For 1-Horse Trailer With Short Tongue
    I would be happy to help you find the correct weight distribution hitch for your short tongue horse trailer, but you will need to verify your total tongue weight to confirm the correct system. Total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to trailer, plus the weight of any cargo added behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.

    When choosing weight distribution you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by first determining the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow. Then to that you would add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So for example lets say that your gross trailer weight is 6,500 pounds and nothing is loaded behind the rear axle of the truck. The tongue...

  • Weight Distribution for a 10,000 Pound Trailer and 2004 Ford F-350 Diesel
    When calculating tongue weight to choose a weight distribution system you also have to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So the minimum weight of the trailer is around 5,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds is the gross weight. At 10 to 15 percent that puts the range at 500 to 1,500 pounds. That is a big range. But it is probably not likely that you will be at 1,500 pounds tongue weight (correct me if I am wrong). So we can look at some other systems. The...

  • Using Curt Short Arm Weight Distribution System on V-Nose Trailer
    With Curt Short Arm weight distribution systems like the part # C17322 that you referenced the distance from the center of the hitch ball to the far edge of the chain hanger will be 30-5/8 inches. A lot of times the best solution for V-nose trailers like yours is to use bolt on hangers like part # C17005 instead as this style does not require clearance above the frame channel so it fits right underneath the V-nose.

  • Will Pro Series Weight Distribution System # PS49903 Work On A 26 Foot 7500 lb Trailer
    To lessen the swaying issues you have with your 7500 lb 26-foot enclosed trailer, I recommend installing a sway-control device. There are 3 types of sway control, independent friction sway control, dependent friction sway control, and active sway control. Independent sway control reduces trailer sway after it has already begun using a bar-style device that bolts onto your trailer frame and hooks up to a small hitch ball that mounts to the system head at the other end. Dependent sway controls...
