Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more 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.


Integrated Active Sway Control

The TruTrack weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved primarily thanks to the specially designed system head.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings in Detents

On top of the trunnions, there are spring-loaded ball bearings that rest in detents built into the underside of the head. As you travel down the road normally, these ball bearings help to keep the trailer in a straight line by applying pressure inside these detents.


TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings out of Detents

When sway occurs, the trunnions move inside the head, causing the ball bearings to come out of these detents. When this happens, the ball bearings ride along internal grooves in the head as they work to return to the detents to snap the trunnion back in place. This action effectively returns your trailer to center.


TruTrack Spring Bar Bracket

Additional sway control is created by the spring bar brackets. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also permits a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Allowing the spring bars to hang freely also minimizes the tension described earlier. This limits your system's ability to hold your trailer in line behind your tow vehicle.


Not only do the brackets on the TruTrack work to constantly hold your trailer in line, but they also supply friction to force it back into place should any sway occur. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Forged Steel Spring Bars

The TruTrack's spring bars are made from forged steel, giving them a distinct advantage over typical cast steel bars. Forging is a process where thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is more resilient to impacts and is stronger in terms of shear strength. Simply put, the TruTrack's spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.


Simple Spring Bar Setup

TruTrack Spring Bar Install

The support brackets of the TruTrack easily clamp onto your trailer frame to provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars on the brackets during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar onto an L-shaped bracket. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.

We received our delivery yesterday and was surprised at the packaging it came in. We have yet to open it to see if any parts fell out of the box. Packaging definitely needs to be reinforced with thicker cardboard.

Have you had a chance to check out the condition of the contents?

Very disappointed with this product. While it does work well for it's intended use, the product longevity, Lifetime Warranty and support from Curt was quite the let down. I purchased this unit in Sept 2021 and have used it for ~35-40 towing days (10 trips). During a routine pre-use inspection/grease application, I noticed that one of the Cam Blocks was damaged. Upon disassembly, the Cam Block was cracked in half and the Socket also had abnormal wear (one side only). Curt denied the warranty claim stating lack of lubrication (which is ironic as I caught the issue while lubricating). They stated that the signs of corrosion show lack of greasing. I'm not sure how you are supposed to stop corrosion when towing in the rain, especially when the paint flakes off after a few uses.

Unfortunately Curt will not sell just the Socket and Cam Plate and requires spending $300+ on a replacement head.

While this unit does work well, it does not hold up over time and Curt will not stand behind their product.

I've used similar products in the past for rv towing, and this is the first time I needed a product for a work related vehicle. This product is awesome! Takes all the undesirable driving artifacts out of the way. No more bucking, rolling, bouncing, just a nice sway-free towing experience. Very straight forward to configure, install & use. I only wish I could have ordered with a 2" hitch ball instead of 2 5/16". My dump trailer uses a bulldog 2" cast iron hitch. I had to buy a 2" ball & have a trucking company rattle gun the 2 5/16" one off & put my 2" ball on the new head. Other than that little knuckle drill everything went like clockwork. Would definitely recommend.

This product made a huge difference when pulling my camper with the additional 1000# of tongue weight when my ATV is loaded. I am pulling a rough total of 4700# with my expedition and pulls very well. I had to make quick change on the interstate at 75mph, the camper wanted to sway but was quickly brought straight behind the vehicle in seconds. What could of been a disaster, with the sway control made everything safe. Install is technical, I just had the RV company install when I was picking up my camper,short on time and Best $200 ever spent. Went with the 1500# tongue weight, since I do have about 1400+ when fully loaded. With setup done correctly, weight is distributed evenly. About a 1/4" difference between front and rear of vehicle.

Good trailer hitch. I was using the basic chain weight distributing hitch with added sway control. This is much better.

Yes good hitch. Works good no problems with it.



by:

I received this today and the box had been torn and re tapped. However it is missing several bolts needed to assemble. Putting me in an extreme bind as we are going on our camping trip literally tomorrow and do not have enough time to get the correct parts to assemble. Very disappointed. Pictured is the only items that were in the box.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out as soon as possible.



by:

I the hitch looks well built. I think I was sent an older model of this hitch because it came with the spacers instead of the Cam for adjusting. I wish I would have gotten the one with the CAM to adjust it. It took me a while to figure out how to put it together because of the spacer and the wording on the instructions. I do like the hitch but if I ordered it again I would request that I get the model with the cam for adjusting.



by:

The maiden voyage for both the Curt Tru Track hitch and the Momentum 28G trailer was a 350 mile trip on both interstate and two lane state highway to Oregons Wallowa Lake. The hitch performed as advertised. I highly recommend. I also recommend watching the video on installation that etrailer supplies. Much better than the written instructions



by:

So far so good. Pulled on a windy day and the wind would push truck and trailer to the shoulder but it stayed straight and came back with no issues. Happy so far.

Works great. No issues with the hitch. Great quality and construction.



by:

What a great purchase, easy to install and after an adjustment the 7800 lb dry weight, 35 foot camper tows like a dream. Instructions were clear and simple even for a camper towing newbie. This unit was picked due to the possibility of getting a heavier camper later and not wanting to buy another hitch. Service from etrailer was outstanding and the price was the cheapest I found.

Still happy with this hitch. Bought a bigger truck so had to purchase a longer shank but couldn’t be happier with the product.



by:

The curt anti sway hitch performs better than anything I’ve ever used.
You never see the trailer behind you.
The weight dist is awesome.
We have f350 /lance truck camper and 26 ft car trailer
In tow.
I can’t picture anything working better.




by:

Works great! eliminates almost all sway, even on a windy day. I especially like the fact that the weight distribution bars are so easy to install. I've never had to use the helper tool!



by:

Disappointed. Went to install this on the trailer at the dealership only to see its missing an entire bracket set. Now its completely useless at a time I need it most.

I am very sorry that you were not able to use the WD system when you needed it. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you as quickly as possible.

Looks great. Works well. Easy to install. Very happy with it so far.



by:

Best price around. Did an inventory and all the parts made it. Package was destroyed though and ups had thrown into a bigger box. Need a better way to ship these.



by:

Excellent product, was as described and not to difficult to install. Only needed to adjust brackets one to level unit out. Would recommend this product to anyone who needs a weight distribution hitch.
Will be using this on my 2014 extended cad f250, to pull my 36 ft keystone Laredo rv.
Many who wander, are not lost!



by:

Thank you so much for sending out the missing trunion bars & helper lifting tool so quickly. Melissa was so polite and helpful;, thank you again so much. I pickup my Jayco Eagle today. Thanks again

I will upload photos of the install later.

It’s just what we needed to feel safe pulling our travel trailer down the road. Would definitely recommend this hitch.



by:

I needed a weight distribution system and quickly realized that Curt was the best around. You get what you pay for so why not get the best!? Very simple to install and with the correct routine maintenance this will last forever, Shipping was fast and box was In good shape when it arrived.



by:

I am not very happy so far with the condition of the package I received, I hope this is on the UPS end. I have had time to go through the box to make sure everything is there, if it isn't I'm hoping etrailer will help make it right.



by:

This is the second one of these that I have purshased they work great and etrailer was grest to work with



by:

The Curt C17501 weight distribution hitch assembly arrived today 10/30/2021 via UPS packed in a large box. The box was severely damaged with a hole/tear midships. Several of the assembly pieces were missing. Please send me two (2) half inch by four inch carriage bolts with lock nuts attached. Also missing are two (2) clips that secure the small L shaped retainers that fit near the end of the spring bars. I will call etrailer on Monday 11/1/2021 to arrange for you to send me the missing fasteners. Will review hitch assembly and install process when I get to it. Thank you.

Its been a year since ordering Curt Tru Track W.D.S. I can say well worth the money, works well! Since then I we upgraded our TT in length, 3 slides, and 1500lbs heavier. CURT wd works flawless!

works fine towing my car hauler behind my motor home.However I had to modify the
frame brackets because they hung too low with the 8" frame rails.

Bobby H.

The frame brackets and pins are not robust enough.Ive bent mine twice as my car hauler rides so low



by:

Having never used a weight displacement hitch before. This made a huge difference in towing a large trailer. I will never tow without one again. This unit is well made. The instructions are straight forward. Installation is as the instructions show. I highly recommend this unit. Price was affordable, and shipping was fast.

This is a very well built hitch system. I would highly reccommend it to anyone towing a trailer.
