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.

After 1 year of running...I have to say this is a good set up. It needs tightening once in a while but it's holding up great. Clips for the bars are a little brittle...I had to replace both of them and the replacement was tedious. But over all - I am very happy with it.

For the price you can’t beat this hitch system. Used it twice already, towed on I-10 in Az with very heavy truck traffic. The sway control bar made a big difference. Set up is very easy. The only drawback is you have to disconnect sway bar to backup.

We were new to RV life, but not new to trailers and pulling close to our Ram 1500’s capacity. Thanks to the guys at etrailer and their [online] videos we were able to get what we needed. In the past year since we picked up this system, I’ve pulled our 30’ TT a few thousand miles, up and down the mountains in VA, NC, and TN with no issues. The load distribution system makes an obvious difference with handling and visibility out my front windshield. Thankfully this system is easy for both my wife and I to use, and is one part of towing that I don’t have to worry about. The sway bar??? Can’t drive Interstate 81 or 95 without it…. I love that I can increase or decrease the level of “control” as needed.

Etrailer was great to work with, nice site, shipped quick. My first load leveling anti sway hitch so I can't compare but doing as I expected, quality is great. Only complaint is removing bars is a pain, better plan on having a screwdriver to release the catch, can't do it with your fingers, liked it well enough to buy a second for the other truck and trailer.

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.

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......


Comments
Still enjoying the stabilizer. It keep the trailer and the back of my pickup inline. However, I havent used the sway-bar control. I find the trailer has little or no sway to justify its use. Very pleased with the product.

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.

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).

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.

Great product. I would never tow my 26’ box trailer without it. Equalizer Hitch is the only way to go and the Curt unit is great.

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!


Comments
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.

I usually don't do ratings. But the customer service with this company was great. When I got my package the box was all tore up and when I went through it I found the most important piece was missing, the adjustable shank that goes in my receiver. I called as soon as I noticed and within a week they had the part ordered and delivered, without hesitation. Thank you for the great customer service. That's what separates the good from bad experiences..

I have been using this hitch for a year now and works great. Not hard to set up and will adapt to many height. Video tutorial online was a great help. I pull a travel trailer in the 4K weight range. It tows smoothly . Well leveled, and sway bars work great. What can I say! I highly recommend this hitch.

Received the Product on time and in perfect shape. E Trailer is the go to place. I have always had good service with Curt products. The Hitch package was as described. For my money I don't believe you will find a better 1,000 / 10,000 lb. hitch, only more expensive.

Works great. It is on a new trailer now that is six feet longer than the original. I transferred the whole hitch. I dont need to tighten the sway bar often the hitch is that good.

  • Can the 10K Curt MV Weight Distribution System Be Upgraded to the 14K
    The Curt MV Weight Distribution System part # C17062 would not be very effective with a 14,000 lb trailer. 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. The hitch ball will not need to be replaced.

    I would be happy to recommend a weight distribution system with sway control for your 2011 Toyota Tundra lifted 6" to tow a 6400lb enclosed trailer but you will need to confirm your total tongue weight before purchasing a system.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a Jayco Jay Flight 29BHS
    The Jayco Jay Flight 29BHS has a dry tongue weight rating of 715 lbs. Therefore, the system will need to have a capacity around 800 lbs to account for the trailer while loaded. I recommend the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System part # C17500 which has integrated sway control as well as an included pre-torqued hitch ball. If you're looking for a more cost effective option without sway control then the Curt MV Weight Distribution System part # C17062 will work. The main difference...

  • Why Can't Trailer with Weight Distribution Hitch Be Reversed
    With weight distribution systems like the Curt part # C17062 the reason backing up isn't recommended is because if you jackknife the trailer the spring bars will either pop out of the system with a lot of tension/force or a component of the system will bend/break. So what you can do is back up basically totally straight with the system installed or you can remove the bars before making tight turn maneuvers.
