Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Great at preventing sway by holding trailer firmly in place at the system head and along the frame
  • Industry leading Equal-i-zer brand does weight distribution hitches and nothing else, so they know their stuff
  • If you need a bigger drop or rise, you won't be wasting money by getting a standard shank that you won't end up using. But...

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Steel-on-steel brackets can create a lot of noise, especially during turns
  • Requires a special thin-walled socket for installation, which is not included
  • You do have to buy the shank separately, so there is that extra step.
Steel-on-steel friction works to prevent and correct trailer sway in this unique weight distribution system. Sway control brackets ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Shank sold separately. 2-5/16" Hitch ball included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Equal-i-zer.

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 (sold separately) 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.

Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with 4 Point Sway Control Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Equalizer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway Control. It has a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and a 1,000 pound tongue weight. Please note you will have to provide your own shank. Part number EQ37101ET. You've decided you need a weight distribution system. The Equalizer Weight Distribution System uses steel on steel friction to help prevent and correct trailer sway. The sway control brackets ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Our spring-bars flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a more controlled and even ride without balance. The system includes the head assembly, though you will have to provide your own hitch ball, and you need to make sure that it has an inch and a 1/4 shank.

It uses a traditional washer system to provide tilt in the head. The more tilt in the head, the more lift in the tongue weight. Because it uses the 4-point sway control, there are no chains. The spring-bars are easily installed with the included lift-handle. The whole thing is made out of a dipped-steel construction, so it's going to be durable and resist rust and corrosion. As with all weight distribution systems, it helps your tow vehicle get back to a stock height with the added weight of a trailer. Let's take a look at that now. I've gone ahead and removed the weight distribution and disconnected from the trailer.

Let's go ahead and get a stock measurement of our tow vehicle. Here at the rear, we've got about 39 and 1/2 inches to the under side of the wheel well. At the front, I've got about 38 and 1/2 inches. You'll want to be sure to record these measurements because these are the measurements we want to try and get back to when we engage our weight distribution system. I've gone ahead and hooked my trailer back up to my tow vehicle without weight distribution. Now, let's take a look and see what the tow vehicle looks like.

Here in the back, I'm squatting about an inch. Here in the front, my vehicle is tilted upward about 3/4 of an inch. Weight distribution should correct that, let's hook it up. I've got my trailer hooked back up and my weight distribution engaged, let's go ahead and take another measurement on our tow vehicle. Here in the back, we're back to stock height and same with the front, excellent. Not using the weight distribution system can cause issues with your traction, tire-wear, and handling. Getting your vehicle back to stock with a weight distribution system can help prevent those problems. Let's show you how it's installed.

First thing to note about using a weight distribution system is you need to make sure your trailer or camper is fully loaded and ready to go. This ensures proper weight is being applied to your tow vehicle. The shank can be installed into the riser drop position, the head is adjustable along the shank. You just need to make sure that the top of the ball is level with the top of the coupler when you're trailer is level. The kit includes eight washers to adjust the tilt of your head. You don't have to use all eight, you just need to make sure to use enough to get your vehicle back close to stock. Our spring-bars fit inside the weight distribution head and are lifted on the L-bracket with the included tool. We can then place in our snap L-pin to help keep the spring-bar in place. This is where that steel on steel friction takes place, helping us with our sway control. Finally, our link-plates are installed on our trailer's A-frame with the L-brackets on the outside. You just want to make sure and avoid your battery box or your propane tanks. Those may have to be relocated. It needs to be positioned between 27 and 32 inches from the center of your coupler. If you've used all eight washers for your head tilt and your vehicle still isn't back to stock, you can adjust your L-brackets. That's going to complete our look at the Equalizer Weight Distribution with a 4-Point Sway Control. It has a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and a 1,000 pound tongue weight. Part number, EQ37101ET.

Product is well made and sturdy. Installation instructions were simple and easy to follow. Took about 2 hours from start to finish to install. The problems it solved for me were the truck sagging in the rear when my car hauler is coupled. Now the truck is level along with the trailer. Also when semi's pass by the entire set up is steady. No shaking or swerving. Wish I had put this on sooner. Very pleased. 552541

After a year of use I can say that the Equalizer has lived up to its promise. It is extremely helpful when hauling autos around in our enclosed trailer. We consider it just part of the normal hauling equipment now.

Figured out on Saturday what type of anti-sway hitch I needed to order, receive and install by Wednesday night. Tried another site, they couldn't meet the deadline, turned to google and discovered etrailer. Called at 1 PM on Saturday and talked to Steve Z, he got the order placed, and promised to check the status and follow up with me on Sunday. Everything was delivered on Tuesday and that night the hitch was installed, a day ahead of schedule. I don't expect to have a high need for towing / trailering, but when I do I'll be checking and calling etrailer first. On a scale of 1 to 10 their customer service is a 15. 426871

Perfect and I recommend the E4 and etrailer. 420572

From the first moment I called this was a wonderful experience. William B was the gentleman I got on the phone and he was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the product. He helped me order the right size hitch and it arrived in three days. I installed the hitch and while yes it’s noisy as other reviews say it is the best hitch I could’ve purchased. I own a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and am pulling a 20’ enclosed V nose trailer. I can do 70 with no problem or any seaway whatsoever. Thanks again Will. 679579

Review from a similar 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution Hitch


I think this hitch saved our lives and probably others. This is my first "big" camper I've been towing trailers and pop ups for years. A 23' Grey Wolf Toyhauler with my 2011 Ford Expy as the TV out in front. I had been talking with more mature campers from work about the high prices of some of these WD hitches.... who wisely advised... don't go cheap on tires, brakes or hitches. I bit the bullet, took a little heat from the wife, cause I had it professionally installed too. (This thing is massive). I'll add pics next time I hookup. Plus rolling on $1200 of new Good Year AT's So me and my wife had just pulled out from Clabough's camp grounds after a week of great exploring, great weather and fun smoky Mtn motorcycle riding. We were heading north on 441, not to the highway yet. Probably not on the road more than 20 min or so driving through a small town. Maybe Severville Anyway, 4 lanes, maybe 40mph or 45mph. Following a car, and just talking. Then what seemed to be out of no where, I looked up to see the car was stopped at a red light right in front of us. When did that light turn red!! I had less than a second to react. I knew I couldn't stop. No one coming left or right at the intersection. No one to my right. It was tight, but I might be able to make it.... I swerved HARD right, then back with a HARD left... missing the car in front of us, and the sidewalk. We went sailing through the intersection totally unscathed... and THE CAMPER FOLLOWED ALONG PERFECTLY!! Silence. Neither of us said a word for what seemed like 5 minutes. I'm not even sure who spoke first. I recall someone saying like, did that just happen? And "we're not doing that again" So guys, it may seem like a lot of money, but I'd say it's pretty cheap. I'll just repeat what I was told... don't cheap out on tires, brake, or hitches. Happy camping. 422706

Review from a similar 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution Hitch


Just bought a new Travel Trailer, had been using a Reese Weight distribution set up with traditional sway bar. This system worked well but had the tractor trailers pushing me around and on windy days I had to reduce highway speeds dramatically. So, I chose to upgrade to the Equalizer for the new TT. I had the Professionals install it since it was raining but the videos and information on etrailer make me confident I could have done it with the correct tools. The Equalizer was fantastic on the 75 mile ride home in the rain with heavy Tractor Trailer traffic. Had little to no sway. Very pleased with my decision. This is a heavy duty system and is easy to hook up. I ordered by calling etrailer because I had a question about shipping and delivery since I needed the new set up for delivery of my new TT. Lisa was more than helpful answering my questions and getting the hitch to me on time. I strongly recommend The Equalizer and etrailer for your towing needs. 426708

Review from a similar 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution Hitch


The installation process was fairly easy, but if you're planning on doing it yourself, keep in mind you'll need the 1 7/8" thin-walled socket (EQ70-00-4800), and most likely a 3/4 drive extension to clear the head, as well as a torque wrench that can read up to 420+ lb/ft. I wish etrailer would sell the extension like they do the socket, though - I lucked out and found one locally, but they only had one, and they were the only store I could find in 50 miles that had 3/4 drive extensions. Hitching is a little more difficult than using a chain WD system because the arms are so hard to get into position, but not needing a separate anti-sway mechanism is great, and after dealing with a failure and warranty claim with a competitor's chain-based system, the quality, customer service, and warranty terms of the Equal-i-zer really set it apart. 467432

After a pretty easy set up of my new Equal-I-zer hitch I took a 160 mile trip with my travel trailer and I was amazed at how well the anti sway worked. Being passed by large vehicles at high speeds caused virtually no sway in my rig. I am impressed by how well this hitch worked and would recommend it to any one who pulls a travel trailer. 614195

Review from a similar 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is one slick setup. I got it tuned in perfectly on the second try. Instructions are very specific and very accurate. I found only one thing that could be better - the bolts that hold the ball mount to the receiver bar are too long, at least 1" too long. A standard socket won't fit over them to torque the nut - shorter bolts or a warning that a deep socket is needed would be nice. This seems like an anomaly, as everything else was a perfect fit. Good price, speedy delivery, as always. One caution, this thing is heavy! 283591

You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Realistically your tongue weight...

  • Weight of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    The head unit of the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37101ET weighs a little over 20 lbs while the pair of spring bars weigh about 35 lb (total, not each). This system does not come with a shank so depending on the rise or drop you need you can use Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 8" Rise, 4" Drop # EQ90-02-4200 or Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop # EQ90-02-4100.

  • Weight Distribution Towing Rockwood 2104S with a 2006 Toyota 4Runner
    Weight distribution systems are rated with a tongue weight range that you want your setup to land in the middle of. Because your Rockwood RV loaded weight will be between 6,000 and 7,000 pounds it's likely the tongue weight will be between 600 and 1050 pounds. A trailer's tounge weight should be 10 to 15 percent of its total weight. You will need to choose a system based on the loaded tongue weight. . In addition to the trailer's tongue weight you need to factor in the amount of weight...

  • Does Ball Come Mounted on Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution and is it Better than Reese or Husky
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution system # EQ37101ET does not come with the 2-5/16 inch ball already installed in the head. It is fairly easy to do though but you will need a thin-walled socket # EQ70-00-4800 to make it easier. We can do it here only if the system is also installed here. A shank is not included with this system. I have included a link to the compatible shanks for you. As far as what is the best weight distribution system it is really a matter of opinion.

  • Is there a Way to Easily Remove Spring Bars from a Weight Distribution System
    The tried and true method for easily removing tension from the spring bars in Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution w/ 4-Point Sway Control - No Shank - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # EQ37101ET is to use the trailer jack. Using the jack to raise both the trailer and the tow vehicle a little together will reduce the tension and allow the bars to be easily removed.

  • Does Weight of Weight Distribution System Need to be Factored as Additional Tongue Weight
    This is a really good question. So our weight distribution manufacturers have explained it to us like this. The weight distribution system essentially becomes a part of the vehicle's hitch so it's weight does not get factored in as additional tongue weight. Typically when a WD system is being used and there is quite a bit of bounce the issue is that the system is rated too high for the trailer's tongue weight. Or the system isn't setup properly. I'd verify the loaded tongue weight of...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for Gulfstream Vista Cruiser
    We have the perfect weight distribution system for you, but in order to ensure you get the correctly rated system, you will need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2004 Toyota Sequoia. The ideal system would be one in which your TTW falls somewhere in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity. For your Gulfstream 23 Vista Cruiser...

  • Weight Distribution or Timbren Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500
    For eliminating sag on a truck that is towing a trailer the best solution is to use a weight distribution system and not use suspension enhancement. A WD system will level the tow vehicle but since it does so by redistributing some of the tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle it also greatly improves braking and handling. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow....

  • Leveling and Weight Distribution for a Truck with Camper Pulling a Trailer
    Prior to purchase, I want to recommend a few things to double check before purchasing your kit. First, you'll check with your trailer manufacturer to be sure that your trailer is approved for use with a weight distribution system. Some trailers, especially aluminum ones, can be too weak to stand up against the forces applied by a distribution system and can fail. You'll also verify that your extension and hitch are rated for use with weight distribution systems. Next, you'll...

    Since the Equal-i-zer 14,000 lb Weight Distribution Hitch # EQ37141ET and the 10,000 lb # EQ37101ET both use the same size bracket, you won't need to replace them. There will be some spacing between the trunNion bars and the retaining clip as shown in the attached photo. It is possible that your brackets may be bent, in which case you would replace them with the Replacement Sway Control Bracket # EQ95-01-5600 .

    Yes, we have multiple hitch options available that will work great with your 2020 Honda Passport and a weight distribution system too.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Rockwood Mini Lite 23.7 Trailer
    Your best option is going to be the Reese Strait Line part # RP66084 as it has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs which would be perfect for your tongue weight of 725 lbs. The sway control on this system is the only style on the market that actively works to prevent sway before it starts. The other very popular option is the Equalizer WD system part # EQ37101ET which would also work great with 725 lbs of tongue weight but instead uses 4 point of friction for sway control.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 6,500 Pound Loaded Trailer
    When choosing the right weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your setup. The total tongue weight is the loaded tongue weight of your trailer along with any added weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Typically the tongue weight will be around 10-15% of the trailer's total weight. So we can estimate the loaded tongue weight of your trailer to be around 650-975 pounds. If we add an estimated 200 pounds that will be coming...
