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.

by:

etrailer was great. Great service and quick and easy. The actual hitch itself was easy to install despite not having the clearest instructions and then difficult to get the sway bar socket to swivel. A lot of grinding metal and leftover burrs in the sockets making them hard to move even when the socket bolts and bush were loosened and all moving parts greased. That part was not machines well. Rest was. I filed and wire wheeled it and got them to move but still very stiff. But it works now and rides well. An hour and half job though took four hours.


Comments
It is possible that the weight distribution system could be over your tongue weight. Ideally your total TW will fall in the middle of the systems operating range. This ensures the system is stiff enough to provide the weight shift to your front axle, but without being so stiff that it causes weird handling from the trailer. If your actual total TW is 1200-1300-lbs then a system rated for between 1000- and 1400-lbs would be perfect. There are a couple of other possibilities that could be causing the grinding, however, we would need some more information.

Product is fine but shipping is horrible. Items arrived in boxes that were falling apart. UPS had to tape a whole box and parts were falling out when it arrived. Haven’t had a chance to check to see if everything is even in the box. Not acceptable.

I will have Customer Service reach out to you.

From my limited experience with the hitch, it appears to be very high quality. Have not had it out on a long trip yet, but did do a 20 mile road test with speeds up to 70mph and it was very stable. It is on a Toyota Tundra 5.7 and is pulling a 23.5 foot toyhauler that probably weighed around 6500 lbs. at the time of my short road test.




by:

Absolutely works great aside from the squeeking. I would suggest using a jack because the pry bar thing sucks. Was able to set this thing up fairly easy. Once I got it set to my rig, the camper and truck operated perfectly, not only did it smooth out the ride but nearly no sway at all. Absolutely worth the money for safety and better comfort in the ride.

Where has this been my whole life of towing bumper pull set ups?




by:

The sway control is awesome. The quality and durability of American steel is impeccable in this WDH. I had one on my previous trailer. When my new trailer came with a chain type WDH last year I couldn't wait to replace it with an Equal-i-zer WDH. I highly recommend Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW. I tow a 2020 Rockwood 2604 SW with a 2017 Toyota Tundra.




by:

Would highly recommend this hitch. My new travel trailer weighs 9,500 empty and was swaying like crazy in a cross wind. Switched over to the equalizer and now the setup is rock solid at all speeds and even with a substantial cross wind. We needed to make this upgrade since many of our trips are on the Columbia River, Washington, and Oregon Coasts. Don't purchase a cheaper hitch, I bought a less expensive 14k hitch and then bought this one after the 3rd trip. I cant seem to find a buyer for the cheapo one now and its just taking up shop space and my money. I installed and set up the hitch in about an hour with a socket set, torque wrench, level, and tape measure.




by:

Cuts down sway considerably. Noisy on turns because it uses friction on bars to control the sway. Definatly worth the price but not as good as a Hensley. Would I buy again, yes. Hook up is a little more physical getting the friction bars onto the L brackets but easier once you learn not to put full weight of trailer on the ball until you position the friction side bars on the brackets. Own several trailers and this purchase allows me to move to trailer needed by just buying an extra set of L brackets for each trailer. Seems to be well built and no problems after a year of use. Glad I paired my purchase with power post. This helps find the sweet spot when hooking up.


Comments
If you hitch up the trailer, and use the trailer jack to raise both the front of the trailer and the rear of the tow vehicle by a few inches, youll find that enough of the tension is taken out of the system so the spring bars are easier to put in place.

The Ram 1500 handles this big trailer with ease using this hitch set up.




by:

Very pleased with this hitch purchase, reasonable price, quick delivery, minor issue resolved quickly. I found out that I had been using an undersized Equalizer hitch for my new trailer. When I started using the new hitch, towing was like night and day, to the better!! For all of you reading this do your self a favor... double check your capacities, order the correct size hitch, and get it from Etrailer. You wont regret it.




by:

I had been using a less expensive competitor sway hitch with chains on a 27 ft. camper. I didn't think the performance of the hitch was too bad but I didn't know what I was missing. We recently purchased a 32 ft. toy hauler and I tried using the old hitch. The performance was horrible. After a recommendation on the correct hitch from etrailer and reading the reviews, I purchased the Equalizer 14,000 pound hitch. Man what a difference! The toy hauler pulls straight as an arrow. In addition, the semi trucks don't suck and push the rig all over the road when they pass. Lastly, the wife doesn't have a death grip on the door arm rest. She actually reads a book during the trip which says it all.

The only complaint is that it is noisy when pulling through the campgrounds. But who really cares when it performs flawlessly on the road. Thanks so much etrailer!

Walt

I It’s working out great! I bought the plastic clips for the L brackets to reduce the hitch noise when entering and leaving in the campground but didn’t help. Nonetheless, still a wonderful hitch and would buy again.

Product works as advertised. We pull a 10,000 lb 24' catering trailer that the weight distribution is far from even with convection oven, 2 door commercial refrigerator and more. We were having severe swaying problems on the highways. Bought this sway control and it stopped all swaying. Before I couldn't hit 55mph without uncontrollable sway and now there is no speed limit that causes sway. Very easy to hook up, follow directions and its a no brainer. After 1 year I still use it every time and seems to work just as well. Re-adjusted for a new truck in minutes. Doesn't interfere with any wire or chains and we have 3 camera system along with custom frame platform on front of trailer to support 2- 100 lb propane tanks and a generator and was still easy to fit on and works great.




by:

This is my second Equal-i-zer setup. I've been very happy with the performance of the WD system. Very easy to use and quiet too. I do recommend the plastic pads that allow the bars to rest on to protect the bars and quiet the system.




by:

I experienced no sway problems after changing to the Equal-i-zer hitch. I pull a 30 foot travel trailer with a 1200 lbs TW. My original 2500 Dodge Ram had air bags. I recently bought a new truck and discovered I didn't need to install air bags thanks to the Equal-i-zer hitch. One year and over 5000 miles of towing I can say, I am very, very satisfied with this product.




by:

Couldn’t be happier with the product and product support from etrailer! Following the easy to follow instructions that were provided with the hitch, I was up and running in about an hour. The only thing I would purchase along with the hitch, is the sound dampening pad that is now available. I purchased the item with the help of customer service and support, got me squared away in no time. Nothing but silence now when I tow. Pulling a 34’ prowler with a 2014 f350.




by:

The Equal-I-zer hitch was a night and day difference. The trailer tracked perfectly with no sway what so ever, even with a very windy day. The whole unit (truck and trailer ) has become very easy to handle and docile on the road. Thank you very much. The hitch worked as advertised and is easy and quick to install. I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing an anti-sway weight distributing hitch.




by:

This is an outstanding hitch. Easy to install, we did it on our camping trip and the drive home was so much more comfortable then with the old weight distribution hitch. There was no sway whatsoever. We pull a 30 foot camp trailer with an F150 and the weight distribution with this hitch is unbelievable. I now have peace of mind knowing my new hitch will keep my trailer from swaying anymore.
This is a great product and I highly recomend it.




by:

I ordered a 14,000 pound Equalizer hitch from etrailer. I was extremely pleased with everything. Ordering , price, free delivery to Florida. There was a follow up on when it would arrive. Hitch arrived in perfect condition and all parts were there. George follow it up from you trailer with a call to make sure everything was perfect and it was. Have told all my friends about the trailer and great service




by:

I received my Equal-I-zer hitch in just a couple days through etrailer.com. They also had the best price I have seen for this hitch. I had the same hitch several years ago for towing a toyhauler. I let it go with the toyhauler when I sold it because we purchased a 5th wheel toyhauler. Well we have gone full circle and purchased another tag toyhauler. After some research I see the Equal-I-zer is still the top rated weight distribution hitch so it was an easy decision to buy it again.




by:

Just got the equalizer 14000 weight distribution hitch and the airlift bags in today from ups. Took a little over 2 hours to install both. The hitch I had before combined with the stock ram 1500 suspension was all over the road with my toy hauler. I couldn't go over 35-40 miles an hour with out feeling like I was going to lose my rig and anyone that's ever been in that situation knows what a white knuckle experience that is. I just got back from a test drive and it is unbelievable the difference those two items made. I got up to 70 and it drove like a dream. For reference my toy hauler is 8500#s with a 850# tongue weight. Thank you etrailer for the best product, fast/free shipping and definitely the lowest price.




by:

I purchased this hitch to use with my new travel trailer and have been traveling from the west coast to the northern Rockies and Midwest over the past 2 months. Hitching up and getting the bars on is a cinch. Sway control is superior to other systems I have used. I would buy this product again.




by:

A LITTLE OVER A YEAR LATER THIS HITCH SYSTEM IS STILL PERFORMING WELL. THE BRACKETS THAT BOLT TO THE FRAME OF THE CAMPER ARE SHOWING SMALL SIGNS OF WEAR BUT NOTHING TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT. I WOULD BUY THIS HITCH SYSTEM AGAIN IF I NEEDED TO ITS A GOOD SYSTEM.




by:

Exactly what I wanted at half the price than other dealers, Customer service top notch, very friendly on the phone and delivered everything as promised. I recommend etrailer for all your needs, they care and I will be their customer for life.

Amazing hitch for the price.. durable and it’s easy to use and set up.. I feel safe and confident behind the wheel well having the family in the truck.. I towed with out this hitch for years and now that I have it this hitch has greatly improved my experience behind the wheel




by:

I bought this hitch because the dealer I purchased my new trailer from undersized the new Equal-i-zer hitch I purchased along with the trailer. Even though I used the hitch for the last year I finally decided I had to upgrade it because the spring bars were just not quite adequate keeping the trailer level and transferring the weight.

My experience with the Equal-I-zer hitch has been satisfactory because of ease of hooking up and unhooking. The integrated friction control has worked very well and the 4 point design makes backing up without having to unhook a friction control device is convenient. You can leave the spring bars on when backing up.


I am quite happy with the Equal-i-zer brand and would recommend this hitch to anyone in the market for a new hitch.




by:

By far the best website I found. Easy to use and tons of information about the products they offered. I shopped all over for the best price on the equalizer hitch and leveling system. They had it and it included the shank and ball. Can't wait to go camping.

This way, the grease gets worked into the mechanism when you make your first turn. I've provided a diagram I sourced from Equal-i-zer that shows these locations. It's perfectly...

  • How To Choose Correct Weight Distribution System When Towing 31-Ft Trailer
    Normally, the tongue weight of a trailer is somewhere between 10 and 15 percent. It sounds like your trailer is at the top of that range and possibly a bit more. To calculate the right tongue weight you will need to add in any other cargo like the fresh water, food, or any cargo carried behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. That can run the tongue weight up. You want the fully loaded tongue weight to fall near the middle of the weight distribution tongue weight range. The Equal-i-zer...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System to Pull a Toy Hauler With GVWR of 9,680 lbs With 1995 F-250
    When looking at Weight Distribution (WD) systems you will want to find one that has a range that your Total Tongue Weight (TTW) falls in the middle of. To find your TTW you will need to add the Tongue Weight (TW) of your loaded and ready- to-go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 1995 Ford F-250/F-350. Keep in mind that your TW should be 10-15 percent of the weight of your trailer. Since 10 percent of your GVWR of 9680 is 968 and the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution...

  • Recommended Equal-i-Zer Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Close to 1,000 Pounds of TW
    If your trailer's loaded tongue weight is already close to 1,000 pounds the 1,200 pound Equal-i-zer, part # EQ37120ET, is the better choice. Especially since you said you may go over the 1,000 pounds. Additionally, when it comes to weight distribution, the amount of weight you have stored behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle acts as tongue weight. So you need to add this to the tongue weight of your loaded trailer. If you haven't already factored this in then you definitely need...

  • Picking Out Weight Distribution System for 30 ft Long 2020 Harbor View
    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. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well.

    For your 2019 Grand Design Imagine 2670MK Trailer the higher-rated Equal-i-zer 14/1.4K Weight Distribution System # EQ37140ET will be the better option. Since your Grand Design can weigh up to 8,500 pounds when fully loaded, you are looking at a loaded tongue weight of around 850 to 1,275 pounds.

  • Equalizer Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with 1,100 lbs Tongue Weight
    Ideally you want your loaded tongue weight to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range for the weight distribution system. The 1,200 lb tongue weight Equalizer system part # EQ37120ET that you referenced has a range of 800- 1,200 lbs so you'd be higher than ideal if your tongue weight is 1,100 lbs. The part # EQ37140ET would be better if that's the case as it has a range of 1,000 lbs to 1,400 lbs tongue weight.

  • Recommended 1000/10000lb Weight Distribution Hitch With The Best Sway Control
    I would be happy to help! First did you readjust the system for your new 2019 GMC Yukon XL with the autoride suspension? If not what you will want to do is hitch the trailer to the vehicle and allow the autoride suspension to adjust before installing the spring bars. Once that is done go ahead and adjust the spring bars to the correct tension following the instruction manual of your Recurve hitch. If you find you still have too much sway I recommend replacing the system with the Equal-i-zer...
