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.


Features of the Equal-i-zer

Head Tilt Adjustment

Controlling head tilt with traditional washer method

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage on your entire system, making it easier to install and hook up the spring bars. To adjust the tilt, simply slide washers onto the spacer rivet and insert the rivet into the head assembly. To increase the angle, add a washer. To reduce the angle, remove a washer. Most setups take four to six washers to achieve the proper height. Once you get the desired tilt, insert the shank bolts to secure the head to the shank and then tighten it in place.



Construction of Spring Arms

The Equal-i-zer spring bars are not made of traditional spring steel. Rather, they are constructed of a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel. Chromoly steel has a high tensile strength for extreme durability. It also features excellent dexterity, which allows it to give as required and then return softly back to its original form. This pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce while still ensuring that the weight of your rig is adequately distributed.


Fixed Sway Control Brackets

Installation of Sway-Control Brackets

The unique sway control brackets of the Equal-i-zer are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp onto your trailer frame and conveniently adjust to a position anywhere between 27 inches and 32 inches back from the coupler. These brackets provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar into place on the L-shaped brackets. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.


Equal-i-zer Hitch 4-Point Sway Control

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved through the rotational friction that is present in the weight distribution hitch itself. Within the system head, the downward pressure that is placed on the hitch ball by the trailer is combatted by the upward pressure exerted by the spring bars that are mounted in the sockets. This upward force is placed on the spring bars on either side of the system, creating the rotational friction that, essentially, forces your trailer in line. This type of friction is responsible for two points - one on either side of the trailer - of the 4-Point Sway Control. To ensure that enough tension is present, make certain that the socket bolts in the head assembly are torqued to at least 45 foot-pounds.


Points within the Equal-i-zer system where upward and downward forces interact to create rotational friction

The other two points of sway control are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. 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 allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Letting the spring bars hang freely minimizes the rotational friction described earlier. It also eliminates your system's ability to create the type of direct friction that has been shown to be so effective in limiting trailer sway.


This direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the Equal-i-zer system helps to stop sway once it has begun. 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.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the Equal-i-zer uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway control system.

Excellent product. This is my 2nd Equalizer hitch. First one was a 10,000lb I used on my 29ft Keystone Camper that was around 8500lbs loaded towing with an 04 F250. I now have a 6,000lb I am using on my 6x12 V-nose around 3500lbs with a 600lb tounge weight towing with a 2016 Tacoma. These hitches make a world of difference when towing & are pretty easy to setup. Especially after doing it once lol.

I really couldn't figure out how this device was going to help with towing our 19' RV. From an engineering standpoint I'm still baffled. The RV center applied it to our new Coachmen Apex Nano so I don't have the experience of installing it myself. They made it seem simple. The only "special" tool they used was a high-torque air gun to secure the ball. I was seriously concerned that the weight of the RV (3,500 Lbs.) would try to control my Dodge Ram ProMaster 2500 van. While the van could certainly use more towing power, I was blown away at how smoothly it towed the RV. I expected very little and was pleasantly surprised by the performance of this system. The first year I put 600 miles on our RV and was never once disappointed or regretful of my purchase. It's really nice that reversing the vehicle has no adverse effect. Some stabilizers won't allow you to reverse. The cost of the unit was a little shocking at first and you may ask yourself where all the money is with just a few heavy metal pieces. The money is in the magic of the performance. Spend the extra dollars on the best, it's worth the peace of mind while towing.

I have been using my Equalizer weight distribution hitch for a year now. It truly is the best hitch I have ever used. Towing through high winds in eastern Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming our trailer (a 21 foot Escape) tracked perfect with no sway what-so-ever. Also there was one occasion that I had to make a very sudden stop to avoid a deer running in front of me. The trailer was rock solid, with no sway. Thank you Equalizer. It took a little time to set up the system properly, but, with a little help from a few friends it was easy. I found it important to have a local tire shop assist in torquing everything to the recommended specs. Great product and lots of good support from eTrailer.


Comments
The Equalizer hitch continues to work great. During our many camping trips throughout British Columbia, Montana and the Oregon Coast the hitch has kept our trailer in-line and we have had no swaying issues in some very heavy weather. Great product and well worth the money!

Ever since we purchased this Weight distribution system, we have been on 7 trips with our travel trailer. Every trip the system far exceeded our expectation. The built quality is amazing and by the looks of it, it will last a lifetime if taken care off properly. We would recommend this system to anyone planning to tow their travel trailer and wants the peace of mind that a gust of wind or fast-moving tractor trailer is NOT going to have you take evasive maneuvers.


Comments
An year later and 18 trips in, the Equalizer weight distribution system is as good as it was on day one. You dont always get to see/feel it working but the confidence we have taking our trailer on highways knowing that this system is doing exactly what it should grows with every trip. The system is definitely worth considering for anyone who tows anything that is more than 2000 pounds in weight.

The new hitch allowed us to get our camper almost exactly level. It barely feels like we have something hooked to the truck. We get no wind pushing us around when trucks pass us on the interstate. It was easy to attach to our camper. Your shipment came in exactly when you said it would. Thank you very much for your good service and for the good hitch.


Comments
I have loved your hitches since 1995. We pulled a camper for 10 years without one and basically started avoiding the interstate highways because of what happened when trucks passed us. The guy at the place we stored our camper had a used Equilizer that we bought and used for 12 years. We got a new tow vehicle with a higher hitch and the old Equilizer was welded and could not be adjusted. Thats when we bought the new one. I watch people at the campgrounds wrestling with other hitches and I just calmly hook mine up and go. I hardly feel the camper behind us. You have a great product and I will use it till I cant camp any more.

We purchased a 19 foot RV travel trailer last year, and even though this may be considered a smaller trailer, it was considerably bigger and heavier than the pop up trailers we have used for the last 20 years, so a new venture for us. I knew I wanted a weight distribution and sway control hitch, but was not sure which to buy. So, I posted the question on this site, and this hitch was the one recommendation by this site's representative. The quality of the hitch and hardware is excellent, and the instructions for installation and adjustment were very clear and easy to understand. So far, we have pulled the trailer on several trips from East Tennessee to central WV. On the long stretches of freeway driving, often with heavy traffic, and on the steep grades, and curves going over the mountains, I was very pleased with the performance of this hitch. The hitch provides excellent sway control, and with proper adjustment there are absolutely no steering or handling issues with the tow vehicle. The guys on this site know their stuff!

Hauling 21 ft. travel trailer. Big difference in how it tows with this hitch as opposed to hauling without an equalizer hitch. Highly recommend this hitch, none better. I have hauled around 4000 miles, mostly mountain roads in the west, with some good winds and my trailer is rock solid with this hitch. Do not tow without a equalizer hitch and if you want the best, get this one. Excellent customer service from e-trailer on this and everything I order from them. About to order rear stabilizer coupler and pins to fix electric stabilizer from them.

I can't speak on the hitch itself because I was never able to use it, but I hear great things. However, I want to save someone else the hassle here, so if your camper trailer has a propane or battery platform on the top side of the V hitch/tongue - you may need to do some serious modifications to put the brackets in the correct position. Check the manual and measure before you order!

Would have been 5star. The hitch it well built and strong. I was told by the E-Trailer operator that it came with a 2in ball already installed. Come to find out it doesn’t. This is frustrating now our trip is going to be postponed or canceled. Apparently you need a special sockoand short thread 2in ball. Bummer

The Equalizer has been a great hitch. I needed the sway control more than the weight distribution in windy Kansas, and this hitch virtually eliminated sway. The weight distribution does alleviate bouncing and makes me feel completely in control of the trailer. I bought the pads to control noise, and I’m glad I did. No complaints. The only downside is that the hitch is heavy and bulky. I’ve yet to find a simple and clean place to store it.

Spoke with a knowledgable gal at etrailer.com and she convinced me this is the best hitch to use. I ordered it on Sunday evening, it arrived on Tuesday and was in perfect condition. Hitch took 3 hours to install. A $12.00 (regular wall thickness) 1-7/8 was needed from [on-line retailer]. Hitch works very well. So glad I didn’t buy a cheap hitch. This one does everything well. Highly recommend etrailer.com, EQ37060ET Hitch and 3/4 Drive 12 pt. Socket with (3/4 to 1/2 adapter) socket. I will continue to do business with etrailer.com.

Installed myself and spent a lot of time adjusting the torsion and test driving. Very pleased with the firmness and stability of the 4000 lb. trailer. There are periods when I hear some squeaking in back, but retightening all the hitch bolts seems to alleviate most of the noise.

I just drove from VT to PA to SC to MD to CT and back to VT, close to 3K miles and this weight distribution/sway control worked great ( I think it did, my first sway bar). Not sure on the effectiveness of the weight distribution as I was pulling with 2018 Jeep G.C. and that SUV does not sag under 500 lbs tongue weight. You can feel that you are pulling a trailer when a semi passes you going over 80 miles an hour, or when you get hit with a side wind on a bridge, but all other conditions are fine (e.g. passing semi truck or normal side wind). Easy to back up into any place. On advice to everybody, keep it lubricated, if you don't, enjoy screeching noise with every turn :). Happy towing.



- EQ37060ET

I don't have any previous experience towing travel trailers to compare to, but I could definitely sense it's value and worth. On the first trip after installing the stabilizer, we encountered sustained winds and a large amount of truck traffic. The trailer was stable and tracked well. The installation is straightforward and took about 2 1/2 hours which included making a couple of adjustments and testing.

Excellent! This has been a great product for me. As a first time travel trailer owner I was concerned with the safety of towing a trailer and concerned with controlling swaying of the trailer and tow vehicle. I had towed a rental trailer once and got a good scare when it started swaying when I tried to pass a transport truck. I set this up using the provided instructions and all worked great. Tow vehicle is level and no swaying in traffic or in very windy conditions. I even had to change tow vehicles in the middle of an extended trip and the conversion to the new vehicle was very easy even though I was "on the road". I just followed the instructions again and all worked very well. I highly recommend this unit.

Perfect fit and function and easy to install. The ordering process was very simple and the item arrived in perfect condition and within about three days of ordering. The thin wall socket issue was solved simply by going to Harbor Freight and picking up a 3/4” drive SAE socket set that went up to a 2” socket for less than the price of the socket alone and it came with the ratchet necessary to tighten it. My tent camper and tow vehicle are perfectly level. Haven’t taken it out on a trip yet but I know it will ride much better than before as the front end was at least 3” higher than the back prior to putting on Equilizer Weight Distribution System. Thanks for carrying suck a great product.

Driving a 2019 Colorado with a V6 pulling a RPOD 189. I made two (2) trips before installing the device, in which the camper "danced" around quit a bit behind the truck. After I installed the device, the camper stabilized and has been an easy pull since. Also, buy a few extra of the spring "L" clips, because you will eventually loose one, I did. Great product. I would by this again.

I am so happy with my purchase. I would highly recommend this hitch for your travel trailer. The more I look at this style of hitch, with built in sway control, the more I realize, that this was a new and modern style hitch. Now, that I have assembled the parts, I am excited to try this beautiful built hitch out on my trailer.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for a 2020 Toyota CrewMax 4x4 Towing a 2021 Winnebago Micro Minnie
    You generally want to have your tongue weight towards the middle of the prescribed weight range of your weight distribution hitch and your trailer tongue weight should generally be between 10% and 15% of the GVWR of the loaded trailer. With that said, the Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET has a tongue weight range of 200-lbs up to 600-lbs, so you're going to be at the top end of that range but that would still be my recommended system for your Winnebago Minnie 190BH in this case based off a loaded...

  • Comparing Equalizer, Fastway e2, Reese Steadi-Flex and Reese SC Weight Distribution Systems
    The Equalizer system part # EQ37060ET of the four that you mentioned would be the nicest/best setup to use. The Equalizer systems are regarded by many as the nicest around and are a favorite among RVers. It has 4 points of friction sway control which work very well. 2 in the head and 2 at the hangers. The e2 # FA94-00-0600 system is basically an entry level version of the Equalizer and wouldn't have as effective of a sway control system. It has two points of sway control at the hangers. The...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a R-Pod 179 Towed by 1998 T100
    When choosing a weight distribution system, it is key to know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight.

  • Will Equalizer Sway Control EQ37060ET Fit Shasta Airflyte 2015 Travel Trailer
    The Equal-i-zer system # EQ37060ET that you referenced is rated properly for your Shasta's loaded tongue weight range. Since the system's spring bars remain under the frame member they should not pose an issue unless the trailer structure also extends below the bottom of the frame. Based on your photo there appears to be enough clearance to allow using this system on your Airflyte. If you have a look at the frame bracket for this system, shown in the photo I linked for you, you will...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System that Will Not Need to Drill Holes in Trailer Frame to Mount
    If you are worried about drilling into the frame of your aluminum trailer when installing the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, like # RP66073, then I recommend the Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution systems. The Equal-I-Zer WD system, like # EQ37060ET, has frame mounts that will mount around the frame instead of drilling bolt holes and bolting the mounts to the aluminum frame. The Equal-I-Zer system uses friction bars to help distribute weight and to control trailer sway. As...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Flagstaff ePro Trailer with 3,890 Pound GVW
    When picking out a weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your towing setup. This number includes both the loaded tongue weight of the trailer (as if loaded and ready for a trip), along with any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your F-150. Ideally, this number will fall somewhere near the middle of the operating range for the weight distribution system you choose. Using a scale like the Sherline # 5780 is...

  • Should Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Left on Trailer Before Launching Boat
    The spring bar tension would most likely cause your rear wheels to unweight slightly. What I would recommend you do is disconnect the bars before you back the boat down the ramp. At that point you'll want the weight on the rear axle for traction. But to answer your other question the bars would be easier to disconnect with the the boat off the trailer.

  • Best Weight Distribution with Sway Control for 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum Towing R-Pod RP-180
    Your 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum does need a full weight distribution system, and the reason for that is a WDS is needed when the trailer weight is more than 50% of your vehicle's weight (GVWR). Based on my research your 2015 Ford F-150 Platinum has a GVWR of between 6,800 lbs and 7,000 lbs, and your R-Pod has a GVWR of 3,800 lbs, which is more than 50% so you definitely want a WDS with sway control (additionally, you mentioned your truck can tow over 12,000 lbs, but no 2015 F-150 can tow...
