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.

Friction Sway Control

The included friction-style sway control unit reduces trailer sway caused by winds, passing traffic, curving roads, or sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install the unit, simply mount the ball-and-plate assembly to your trailer's frame with the included self-tapping screws, and attach the sway control ball to the head of your weight distribution hitch. Then attach the bar to both of the balls and secure it in place with the included clips.

Forged Steel Spring Bars

The round 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, these spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.

Built-In Grease Zerks

Built-in grease zerk on the Curt weight distribution system head assembly

The system's head features 2 built-in grease zerks so that you can easily lubricate the spring bars without having to remove them from the head assembly. The grease zerks are located on each of the shafts that encase the spring bars. Simply use a grease gun (sold separately) to inject grease into each of the zerks.

Well made and heavy duty. The Curt MV Weight Distribution System is complete with nothing else to buy. Great price, fast shipping. Shipping package wasn't strong enough to support the heavy weight. Although the carton was in bad shape when it arrived there was no damage. 603557

Ordered Curt equalizer hitch with draw bar. Excellent price and service. Ordered at 11:30 Tuesday morning and it arrived at 3:30 two days later (Thursday). Great service. I haven't installed the unit yet, but all parts are in the box and in excellent condition. 236899

Going on a year, and this hitch is great and a good value. The problem I had with the hitch I'd had previously was that the arms were too heavy for me to manage. I think this hitch works better for my implementation (I tow 30 feet with a Chevy Tahoe) than the old one, plus I can handle the entire thing myself. I feel in control even in high wind. Also- great service from e-trailer. A few weeks ago, one of the arms got stuck and customer service was able to help me solve the problem. 736363

This was my first time buying a weight distribution system, but I'm very pleased with this product. etrailer has by far the best price, and with free shipping on this product, it was a no-brainer. The system is a heavy steel (100lbs) that seems of good quality that should last many years. Good directions for installation comes in the box, but I also viewed a YouTube video produced by etrailer which I found very helpful. I would like to thank etrailer for their fantastic customer service. I got an email notification that my package had arrived, but when I got home it wasn't there. I called etrailer and on the second ring a customer service employee picked up the phone. The employee contacted UPS for me and called me back within 10 minutes telling me UPS would contact me within the hour. 20 minutes later UPS contacted me who told me the driver had brought the package to the wrong house, but would bring it to my house. About 15 minutes later my package was delivered. I truly appreciate etrailer's customer service, and the fact I spoke to a real person. I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone. 450569

The Curt Hitch setup works great and after towing over 120 days this past year, I have had no problems. The only thing I would improve on is probably impossible (the weight of the components). 625351

- C17062

The hitch kit arrived in record time and didn't cost me a thing extra! The chains were already attached which cut down on assembly time. Although the instructions are a little confusing when it comes to measurements and where to measure and when, but they seem to be complete. The only thing negative I can say is be prepared to pull the hitch head off the shank a couple times to adjust the number of washers (as it does say that in the instructions). I assembled mine per instructions (except I tightened the head bolts too soon) figuring with the ball tilted back just a little, it would hook right up. Turns out, I cant even attach the last link to the clevis as it is too far back. Sooooo tomorrow I will take the head apart and remove a couple washers on the rivet and try it again. Overall, I think it will do a fine job in distributing the weight through out the truck vs all in the rear. The friction bar was easy to install too. Our camper already had a sway control at one point, so all the holes were there. We did purchase an additional Curt friction bar for the drivers side and installed it too. We haven't towed the camper yet with this set up (as stated above, its not quite assembled correctly yet) but am planning on the maiden voyage this weekend. Thanks ETRAILER for another sweet deal on quality products! 268114

Still working Great! The only negative thing I have seen is there are some marks where the friction bars have contacted the hitch head, so either the ball mounts on the trailer are too low, or the hitch head is tilted back too far to properly accommodate the friction bars correctly.
Dave K - 07/05/2017


The angle of the hitch head may be a factor, but commonly we see damage to the anti-sway bars when they are not removed while backing-up. This system is not designed to be used while backing up your trailer.

The hitch is of high quality. It took me about 45 minutes with double checking everything, I didn’t have to mount the sway bar ball on trailer, already had one. I’ve only put about fifty miles on it just to test and get the feel of it, I’m vary happy with! First photo standered hitch 3/4 lift, second photo Curt distribution hitch and sway bar. 647696

I pull a 27 ft. Enclosed trailer with 2 Polaris Razors about 5000 load this hitch has been great trailer sits nice and level and with the sway control I don't feel trailer swaying at all only takes a few minutes to setup. I would definitely recommend this product. 819852

Wow..super fast shipping. It probably helped that one of the distribution centers is only 10 miles from my house, but still really fast. I sold my old weight distribution hitch and sway control with my last camper. Didn't want to buy a new one and was hoping the rv dealer would through one in. But they wanted $400 for a used set.. i found this one on etrailer and it is the exact same one I had and the same one the dealer wanted to sell me used. This one was half the price and works perfectly! Thanks for a great product. 762844

I really don't need alot of what I put on my rig but it's always better safe than sorry and with etrailers prices it's ok. 761720

I can't lift the box the stabilizer came in, to me that indicated a quality product - made out of solid parts. Anyway, I chose Curt because friends had them on their trailers and were completely satisfied with the products performance. Good enough for me...... 756830

  • Will Curt Replacement Spring Bar # C17113 Fit Higher Rated Curt Weight Distribution System # C17062
    You can indeed swap out the spring bars on the Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17062 with the lower rated Curt Spring Bar # C17113 to bring its tongue weight capacity range down to 600 to 800 pounds. The bars feature the same diameter and are interchangeable on your system. No additional hardware will be needed when making this conversion. This is a perfect solution if you switch to a lighter trailer so that the system won't be over-rated, which can cause a pretty rough ride that...

  • Can Curt MV Weight Distribution System Be Ordered with 2 inch Hitch Ball
    We have a version of the Curt MV WD system part # C17062 that you referenced which doesn't come with a ball which then allows you to add the size needed to your order. For that you'd want the # C17052 and the Curt ball # 40038 which is a 2 inch hitch ball that also has the correct shank dimensions to fit this system. Then to add on the sway control unit you'd also want the part # 17200.

  • Can the 10K Curt MV Weight Distribution System Be Upgraded to the 14K

However, you can make it effective with this weight by upgrading to the Replacement Spring Bar for Curt MV Weight Distribution System part # C17074. This upgraded spring bar will be a direct fit.

  • Drop Shank that Fits 2-1/2 inch Hitch for Use with Curt MV Weight Distribution System

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for Jayco Hummingbird Towed By 2019 Toyota Highlander
