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.

The Equilizer hitch installation instructions were easy to follow and the unit was easy to install. The only thing that I think would be better is if the hitch ball was installed at the factory or the specialty socket needed was priced more reasonably. I don’t have a store near me that can install the hitch ball. I was very happy with the service I received from Jamie S. To help expedite my order. She went out of her way to make sure my order was shipped out and she followed up letting me know when it shipped.

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


I rate this product "good" to alert potential users to an issue I face during installation of this Equal-i-zer hitch. As I purchased this hitch, a 2 and 15/16" ball with a 1.25" shank stud and its nut were included. That nut requires a special 1 and 7/8" thin walled socket that slips down into a cavity where the shank stud protrudes and the nut screws on. The instructions state that socket is available at Equal-i-zer dealers. Such a socket WAS NOT AVAILABLE at any automotive parts store, car dealership, nor agricultural supply hardware I contacted in the small California town I was in. The nearest Equalizer dealer to me was over 100 miles distant, and I had planned to leave the day I began installation of the hitch. The instructions also state that a shim can be used if a 2 and 15/16" ball with a 1" shank stud and nut are used. That is the ball I already had on my truck and I was fortunate to find a properly sized shim at an agricultural supply hardware that I cut to length and used in my installation. I still needed a large socket and extension to tighten the nut because the nut was deeply recessed in the cavity. The box end wrench I normally used on the nut was of no avail; however, an automotive repair shop had such a socket and loaned it to me to complete the installation of the hitch. IF you are going to undertake the installation of this hitch yourself, then be aware of the need for either the special Equal-i-zer specified socket for the ball included, OR a 1.25" to 1" shim and a deep well socket for the smaller 1" shank stud and nut such as I used. Contact customer service at Equal-i-zer if you have questions in this regard BEFORE you purchase. Having alerted you to the installation issue I faced, I now rate the product itself as EXCELLENT in performing the job it is intended to do when towing. Once I had the hitch installed, the instructions for making adjustments so it will perform as intended are clear. Along with the hitch I purchased a Sherline trailer tongue scale and that is an accessory I highly recommend. I was towing a 2-axle car trailer loaded with a vehicle for a total tow load of 5500 lbs. Using the tongue scale I adjusted my load so 10% was on the tongue. I was towing cross-country from California to Michigan with a 2010 Tacoma 4 x 4 rated with a 6500 lb towing capacity. I towed at 55-60 mph and had one incident that required immediate, heavy braking and the truck and trailer stopped perfectly, as if the trailer had no been there. So keep in mind, my rating of GOOD was to draw your attention to the installation issue I faced. The PEFORMANCE of the hitch was EXCELLENT.

Comments
My Equal-i-zer hitch continues to perform as I had wanted and described in my review. It has an unstated safety benefit. I tow long distances without a load on my trailer. I keep the Equal-i-zer hitch fully installed but adjusted so there is only mild tension transferred forward. That keeps the receiver ball housing on the tongue of the trailer constantly pressed against the hitch ball. If for any reason the ball coupling lock should fail or have not been set, the trailer would remain coupled to the truck.

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


World of difference, my wife's truck is our tow pig (2500 yukon) and the nose barely rises even with 750+ lbs on the tongue (~1/2"-3/4"), but you can feel a huge difference with/without WD and sway control. Steering is significantly more positive and responsive due to more weight on the front axle and the trailer handles the wind much better. Excellent product that is easy to install WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE BALL. I recommend going to an RV place to get the ball put on the head (and I am a VERY handy guy) if you don't already have a massive torque wrench and the random thinwall socket. Not worth the hassle.


Comments
A year into ownership, this thing is even better than I originally thought. I will never consider towing heavy of towing largewind affected trailers without this setup. This hitch makes what is a terrifying experience even at 45mph towing our 32+foot travel trailer in heavy winds trust me, Ive tried with a regular hitch setup into a stress-free experience up to 65mph in the same conditions. Awesome piece of kit no true tow rig should be without!

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


Great product. I use it with my '21 Tundra Crewmax SR5 Sport and a 34' Keystone Bullet 290BHS RV. However, there is one major hang up. You have to get your own 3/4 drive 430-foot pound torque wrench and 1-7/8 thin walled socket in order to install and tighten the hitch ball. I had to rent that torque wrench which is about 4' long. Neither Home Depot or Lowe's had it. But Lowe's had the socket. The hitch ball should come pre-tightened to save the customer all this hassle and run around. Be aware of this issue.

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


I have been using this EQ hitch towing my Bullet crossfire travel trailer with my F-150 for over a year now and it handles great. Tows smooth and without jerking or a rough ride. It took a few times to properly balance it and adjust it properly but what a major improvement from towing without it. I recommend this EQ hitch very much!!


Comments
Excellent! I have towed over 5000 miles in 2 years with this hitch now and it is still like new. What a great purchase.

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


I received this hitch a few short days after placing my order and as soon as it arrived I unpackaged it to admire the contents. Everything was intact and ready to assemble, just as expected. I also ordered the special thin walled socket, which I am glad I did since my mechanic friend that did my torquing didn't have a socket that would work for this hitch ball. I know it is expensive but I wanted everything done right. I installed the hitch and set it up following the directions in the manual, and everything turned out perfectly. I think from start to finish it took the wife and I less than an hour and a half. Easy, and according to my measurements and a visual everything looked perfect. None of this is rocket science, and the installation is truly easy. Well, time to try it out, and what great timing, we left Saturday morning in a 40 MPH headwind for 20 miles, and then another 25 miles with the wind quartering at us on a busy highway. This hitch worked flawlessly! I was tickled with the whole ordeal, and today coming back with no wind at all it wasn't much different than the day we had the wind. You know what wind means, right? WINDY IN ND. Yep, we get our share. This hitch served us very well, and I am extremely pleased with my purchase and the ease of installation and set up. I would order it again in a heartbeat. My tow vehicle: 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with max trailer tow package. 6.2 L with 8 speed transmission. My travel trailer: 2016 Jayco Octane SL, weighs in loaded at 6100 lbs with a hitch weight of 910 lbs.


Comments
A whole year has gone by, and Im still extremely satisfied with my equalizer hitch. I hear the squeaks when I make my turns, I know people talk about this hitch being slightly noisy, but every time I hear it I smile. I know its back there, doing its thing, and it does it extremely well. I would buy this hitch again in a New York minute. I am very pleased. Did I say Im VERY pleased? Lol. Its that good.

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


Fantastic piece of gear. Super heavy-duty. Made my truck and trailer ride so much smoother, brought the back end of my 3/4 ton truck back up to level, and completely eliminated the the swaying I would get from time to time with my dump trailer. Instruction manual that came with the kit was very detailed and well-written. One minor complaint: it would be nice if the ball came mounted to the hitch assembly because most of us don’t have a torque wrench that goes to 430 feet pounds. Beyond that, an excellent investment.

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.

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


Just received and put together my Equalizer hitch but not set up or used with our new travel trailer yet. The quality of the parts are amazing. I have used other weight equalizing hitches and have 5th wheel hitch systems. This system is heavy duty and a pleasure to put together. Etrailer did a great job on the website describing, illustrating and proving support to make my decision so easy. Thanks Etrailer. Going to pick up new travel trailer today with new hitch system.


Comments
I am pulling a 34 foot travel trailer that weighs 7,280lbs. I am very comfortable and feel secure while towing with the equalizer hitch system. There is absolutely no sway even when tractor trailer pass by. I have used other sway control products and systems where I encountered sway and white knuckle rides. I highly recommend the Equalizer 4 point sway control system to anybody thinking about a new or replacing a current system.

Very glad I spent the money. This was for my 2015 Tacoma and 7x14’ Vnose trailer. Eliminates the bucking on the truck over bumps, and eliminates sway. Balances the weight quite nicely. Well with the peace of mind.

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


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.


Comments
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.

This hitch works great! Just got back from my first 300 mile round trip pulling a 25' travel trailer and I had no issues at speeds above 55mph. The hitch really helps lock the trailer with the tow vehicle and helps prevent sway! Set up was pretty simple, there were great instructions provided.

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


I purchased this hitch for a 9000lbs travel trailer with a 1001lbs tongue weight. If your debating between a less expensive round bar and this setup, spend the money. This hitch is by far a better, easier, and safer setup. I purchased this hitch to replace a Pro-series round bar with a friction sway control bar. The Equal-i-zer's 4 point sway control is big step up from a single point sway control system. The 1st drive felt secure and safe. Install was easy, but time consuming for a 1st time installer. But worth it in the end. Here's some pointers. 1. get the right tools, rent or barrow a the torque wrench to do the hitch ball 430ft/lbs, and shank bolts 320ft/lbs. The piece of mind that it's correct is worth it. 2. Plan for the afternoon, not a couple of hours. 1st setup is going to be close but your going to have to adjust it so plan on taking something apart. but setup is relatively easy, esp with the right tools. I had the trailer level the 1st go around to 2.5". So I had to move the head up one hole in the shank and then it was within 1". Distribution setup was still with in a proper setup, so I didn't have to make any further adjustments. As far as the coupling and uncoupling the hitch. Using the tongue jack to release the tension is easy to do and quick. Esp. with an electric jack. I never liked the round bar with chain setup on my previous hitch. High quality, easy install and setup, and seems to have great sway control.

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


Was needing a weight distribution system for towing my 16' toy hauler and with Kats help from etrailer I couldn't be happier with this product. Trailer has a dry hitch weight of 950lb and 1100lb loaded. Set up took me an hour or so, but now I feel comfortable hooking and unhooking. Took it on a 100 mile trip a few weeks back in heavy rain with strong wind gust and handled great! Without it I didn't feel safe going 60mph on calm sunny day.

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


Ordered this product for the built in sway control. My last hitch required another device to achieve this, but I didn't care for the additional work when backing up or on wet surfaces. The order shipped quickly and arrived intact in 2 separate packages. The smaller of the two, contained the hitch shank and main body. It's heavy, so it was expected that the box would have a hole. The other larger package was sealed and intact. All parts were present. Setup was straightforward, documentation excellent. Particularly the places to annotate measurements. The manual was small but effective. The ball mounting requires a thin walled 1 7/8 socket. I didn't buy this, my RV dealer torqued my setup for nothing. Very satisfied with this hitch thus far. Will update when I have had a chance to put it through the motion.

The Equalizer Wt Dist W Sway Con And Ball 10k Gtw, 1000 Tw. Was recommended for my application and works great. [Local retailer] in New York did the installation on my New 2017 Starcraft ultra light. The product has a clean look on the trailer. The Equalizer is a great product for tight turns and backing into parking slips. No need to remove sway controls, because its incorporated into the Patented Design. I've used other styles in the past but this is the product for me.

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.

Ordered the Equal-I-zer weight dist hitch as a reaplacement for original W/D anti-sway hitch trailer dealer sold me (was getting quite a bit of sway). Relatively easy to install, instructions were very easy to follow, getting a torque wrench (430 ft-lbs) for the ball had been my only concern. Weight distribution was right the first time, truck and trailer sit nice and level. The trailer tracked very well and there was no sway when being passed by large tractor-trailers. Less noise than I expected after reading reviews when researching hitches. Very happy with the hitch and the GREAT service from etrailer. Highly recommend.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for 2020 KZ Sportsman LE 333 KBKLE & 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500
    Choosing a weight distribution hitch should be done using the tongue weight of your trailrer; it looks like the 2020 KZ Sportsman LE 333 KBKLE has a dry tongue weight of 1280-lbs, which would likely be around 1400-lbs when loaded.

I looked up your 2018 Jayco Eagle 322RLOK and based on the dry weight, dry tongue weight, and GVWR this would be a great option rated perfectly. For a hitch ball you'd then want the part # C40008 and the socket part...

  • Parts Needed to Remove Movement/Noise of Weight Distribution Shank in Hitch
    Hitch rattle/noise is pretty annoying. We have products like the Hitch Immobilizer part # BX88225 which you can use to eliminate all of that noise. This uses a couple U-bolts to pull the shank of the ball mount tight against the hitch tube to get rid of the movement. This specific model fits 2-1/2 inch hitch sizes like you have as well.

  • What Weight Range Weight Distribution for Trailer with 1,400 lbs Tongue Weight
    If you have a tongue weight of 1,400 lbs a weight distribution with a higher tongue weight range would be ideal. Especially when you consider that the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle gets added as additional tongue weight. So a higher rated system like the Equal-i-zer part # EQ64FR would be your best option as it has a tongue weight range of 1,200-1,600 lbs. You'll also need a thin-walled socket to install the ball # C40008 too with the # ALL643216.

  • Which is Better Weight Distribution Shank Position Slightly Nose High or Slightly Nose Low
    If you have to pick between slightly nose high or slightly nose low I'd recommend the lower option as nose high setups typically are more likely to sway since it lowers tongue weight. Now that said sometimes with a slightly higher setup using unloaded measurements you end up closer to level when the weight of trailer is on the vehicle suspension due to suspension compression so you might try both just to be sure.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch With Sway Control for 1,400 lb Tongue Weight
    Adding air bags won't remove tongue weight or stress from the weight distribution system, and since there are no bars rated for nearly 1,500 lbs of tongue weight from Fastway, it does mean you need to upgrade to a more robust weight distribution system. For approximately 1,500 lbs of tongue weight, if you liked your Fastway system you can get one from the same manufacturer, Equal-i-zer. This system is like the Fastway but with 4 points of sway control - at the hitch head and spring bars...

  • Which is Better Weight Distribution System Reese Strait Line or Equal-i-zer
    The Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems and the Reese Strait Line systems are widely considered to be the best two systems you can get. The sway control of the Strait Line setup is better than the Equal-i-zer, but the Equal-i-zer weight distribution has yet to be improved upon so it has the edge. So if you are wanting the best WD the Equal-i-zer is the way to go but if you want the best sway control the Strait Line is the way to go. Since you haven't had issues with sway I'd go...

In that case, I can highly recommend the Equal-i-zer # EQ37121ET which is specifically designed for trailers with a tongue weight between 800 and 1200 lbs (make sure you include cargo stowed in the truck bed behind the rear axle as tongue weight). The system includes the 2-5/16 inch...

  • Weight Distribution System for a Toy Hauler with a Tongue Weight of 1600 LBs
    For your 2021 Outdoors RV Trail Series 29TRX, there is something to keep in mind. With a tongue weight of 1600 pounds, we only have one Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System that can handle that amount of weight. It's part # EQ64FR. The problem with this system is that 1600 pounds is the highest that it can handle. If your tongue weight goes up for whatever reason (how the toy hauler is loaded can affect this), the Equal-i-zer will become ineffective. Also, this system fits a 2-1/2"...

Typically you want the actual tongue weight of your trailer to fall right in the middle of the range for the weight distribution system. You will...
