Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Rotating latches let you really fine-tune the tension on the bars for good weight distribution
  • Quieter ride than systems with steel brackets or cams - no scraping or loud popping

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • The chain setup just won't give you enough tension for good sway control
  • Included wrench can be a pain to use
  • You'll have to buy a hitch ball separately
Shank fits 2" hitches and offers up to an 8" rise and a 2" drop. System uses optimal points of tension to help prevent sway while it balances your trailer's load for a more level ride. Clamp-on brackets require no drilling. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution from Blue Ox.

Create a 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.


Unique Features of Blue Ox SwayPro

Blue Ox SwayPro Spring Bars

Unlike other weight distribution systems, the SwayPro has automatically locking brackets throughout. Both spring bars insert, slotted side up, into the head assembly and then lock securely in place. Removal is just as easy - simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out. Blue Ox spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.


Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.


Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.


Built-In Tension Stops Sway

Blue Ox SwayPro System with Built-In Sway Control Hooked Up

The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System with Sway Control in a clamp-on design. For demo purposes as well as the quick installation, we're going to be using part number BXW1000. This SwayPro weight distribution system that we're using today is rated for 10,000 pounds maximum gross trailer weight with a maximum 1,000-pound tongue weight. Now we're going to go ahead and take our vehicle and the trailer for a test drive with the original set up. There's no weight distribution or no sway protection or prevention on our set up as it stands. Go ahead and show you how much movement as well as how uneasy the feel the tow vehicle has.

There's a lot of sway or side-to-side motion with the weight of the trailer. Now let's go ahead and begin how we would install our new Blue Ox SwayPro system. We've gone ahead and made sure that our trailer and our tow vehicle are parked in a straight line. We've gone ahead and disconnected the trailer from the tow vehicle. Now that we have everything disconnected, we can go ahead and scoot our tow vehicle forward a little bit. Now that we have the trailer unhitched from the tow vehicle, we can go ahead and level the trailer up itself.

You can see we have our trailer level. With our trailer level, we can turn our attention over to our tow vehicle. We need to remove the existing ball mount. Next, we're going to need to go ahead and measure the coupler here on our trailer and when we measure up, the top here we got 21 inches with the trailer level. There's one additional we need to go over here on the head of the SwayPro. You'll notice there's two little grease fittings here.

You will need to grease these periodically so that your SwayPro gives you long life and everything stays lubricated like it should. Next, were going to go over here and here's our shank that goes into the receiver. You'll notice that it has seven holes on it because it can go either this way or this way. For this particular vehicle, we're going to put it going up. It does have a 0 to 5 inch adjustability built into it so depending on your particular tow vehicle and trailer, it is adjustable.We'll go ahead and put our receiver shank into the receiver.

Put our 5/8 pin and clip in to secure it. Next, we're going to need to put the hitch head under the shank that's in the receiver. Now, we need to get a measurement of the top of the ball which you will need to supply separately. It does not come with the Blue Ox SwayPro system. You need the top of the ball measurement to be one to two inches higher than your coupler height. For our instance today, were at 21 inches on the trailer coupler height so we need to be 22 to 23 inches to the top of the ball. We're just going to temporarily set the ball in the hitch head for now so we can get our adjustment. Go ahead and slide the head onto the receiver. We'll take a couple of the 3/4 inch bolts. Just go through the holes to hold it in place for now. Now that we just have it temporarily set up, we can go ahead and take another measurement and from the ground to the top of the ball here, we are at 23 inches, so we're within the 1 to 2-inch height difference so this looks like thats a good location to secure the head to the receiver shank. While we may have been able to get our height needed with the receiver shank here flipped over to help eliminate any possibility of dragging or hitting something with this part hanging down, we went ahead and flipped it over. As you can see where there's still plenty of clearance. You don't have anything dragging here. It'll all depend on your particular application whether this is facing up or facing down. Now the ball we're using today is an inch and a quarter diameter shank so it fits in the head properly. If your ball only has a 1 inch shank, they do supply a coupler tha'tll go over it like that and drop into place taking up the excess room in the head of the receiver here. The hitch ball the we're using today is a 2-5/16 diameter with a 12,000-pound maximum gross trailer weight rating and its part number 19286. Here's the Loctite that we'll need to add to each of the threads here before we install the 3/4 inch lock nut and 3/4 inch hex nut for each. The red Loctite that we'll be using today is Loctite Thread Locker 262, part number LT37420. Next, we can go ahead, tighten down the hardware here. With the hardware tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque it down to the manufacturers specification. Next, you're going to need to secure the ball to the hitch head. To make things a little bit easier, I'm going to go ahead and flip over our whole set up here in the receiver. It makes things a little bit easier. If you turn it sideways like that, it'll make things a little bit easier to torque down the nut that secures the hitch ball. We'll need to install the lock washer that comes with the ball as well as the nut. We'll go ahead and tighten and torque down the ball to the manufacturers specification. Now that we have the hitch ball torque down, again make sure that you follow the manufacturers instructions for mounting the hitch ball to the head of the receiver.We'll go ahead and turn the whole thing back to the upright position. Line up the hitch pin hole. Put our 5/8 pin back in place as well as the clip. Go ahead and take another quick measurement to make sure we're still where we were before, right at 23 inches still. Our coupler height is at 21 so we should be good. Now, we're ready to go ahead and hook back up to our trailer. We'll go ahead and raise the trailer back up so we can back our tow vehicle underneath the coupler and we can hitch things up. We can go ahead and lower our trailer down under the ball. Next, we're going to need to measure back 29 inches from the center of our coupler along our frame here on our trailer. Go ahead and put a mark here on our trailer. Go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. Here's what our rotating latches look like. They come with this larger bolt but depending on your frame of your trailer, you may need to replace the bolt with this shorter one. It will all depend on how wide your trailer is or if this bolt here is too long and has an obstruction. You do get two of these with the kit as well if you need to replace them. In our particular application, this particular short bolt is too short to work properly so we'll be using the longer bolt that's already installed. You'll notice that it also a jam nut here once everything is installed. We'll go ahead and line up the bolts here with our mark we made. Go ahead and get that centered up.Then go ahead and just hand-tighten down the bolt in the back for now. Go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. Setting up the Blue Ox system itself is identical except for the bars are different and you can tell by the different dots underneath which size kit you have. The way you can tell the difference, just by looking at them it's kind of hard to do that but when you look right here, there's these little dimples or dots. Three dots means that its a 1,000-pound spring bar. Just for comparison, we have one here. It looks identical to it but this one here only has one dot on it. That means its a 550-pound bar. They range anywhere from no dots which is a 350-pound bar all the way up to five dots which is a 2,000-pound bar. After we have our spring bar in, kind of hold up where it would be, i'ts going to be right in the middle.We can go ahead and tighten and torque down the nut to the manufacturers specification. Once that's done, we can go ahead and take the jam nut. Tighten that down as well. Go ahead and tighten down our nut here. Go ahead and torque it down then. Then go ahead and tighten down the jam nut. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the other side. Let's go over a little more detail how the bar slides in to the head of the hitch. Theres a hole drilled into it right here. Tha'ts what lines up with this little release mechanism right here. You want to make sure that that's always facing up. You'll slide it into place until that drops back down in securing the bar in position. Now let's go ahead and show you how to connect one of the bars in with the latch mechanism. We've gone ahead with the trailer coupler to the ball. We've used the trailer jack to raise up the front end of the trailer as well as help hold up the weight on the back end of the tow vehicle. We've gone up pretty high as you can see. That'll make connecting our bar here a lot easier. A good starting point is to have about three lengths visible on the bottom of this latch mechanism here once it's flipped back into position. Let's go ahead and go over how these work. You pull the handle here and that releases them. Allows them to pivot down and then as you turn it using the handle, locks it back into place. We'll go ahead and show you how one works. Go ahead and take the chain. There's a little groove built into the mechanism here, drops in like that. The chain into position and by having the trailer jacked up like this, it makes it much easier to turn this mechanism right here into position. Take the bar. Turn it counterclockwise until you hear it snap or lock into position. You notice that there's a lot of tension on the bar and it also does have some bow to it or flex to it. That is what it's supposed to do, that is normal. That's what helps with the weight distribution as well as stopping any sway to the trailer. We'll go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. With both of the bars connected, we can go ahead and lower the trailer down.We've gone and taken the weight off the jack so all the weight is on the vehicle now. Let's go back over here to our level on the side of trailer. If you'll see here, if you remember from the beginning, we started at four and four with the trailer level not hooked to the tow vehicle at all and now that we are hooked to the tow vehicle, we are level on the trailer. We're pretty well right where we want to be set on the height of the hitch head as well as the tension on the bars. Now we'll go ahead and take it out for another test drive and show you what it looks like with the new Blue Ox SwayPro hooked up to our trailer. Now that we have our new Blue Ox SwayPro system installed, you can see how much better the vehicle handles pulling this trailer. Theres a lot less movement in the vehicle and you have a lot more secure or stable feeling in your tow vehicle as you're going down the road. You don't have any sway or movement of the trailer. Let's go ahead and get a baseline of what our vehicle is without the trailer connected to it at all. From the ground to the bottom of the wheel well, we're about 36-1/4 inches. Come up to the front here and were about 35-1/8 to 35-1/4 inches from the ground to the bottom of the wheel well. Now let's go ahead and take some measurements now that we have our SwayPro set up on the vehicle. From the ground to the bottom of the wheel well, we have 35 inches here at rear. We move up to the front, it appears at the front we have about 35-1/8. We're pretty even with the Blue Ox SwayPro set up on our vehicle and trailer and that'll do it for our quick look as well as installation of the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System with sway control and the clamp-on style.

The unit is quite heavy and you need to make sure you have the space to mount the chain take-up brackets (the proper distance down the trailer arm), other than that the unit is fairly easy to use and stopped my 14 foot Sportsman Travel Trailer from swaying when traveling 70 mph. Before I added the anti-sway unit it was a scary proposition to travel over 60 mph. Felt a little like you were losing control of the trailer. Now, I feel more confident that all is well. The unit is well built and should last years. I would buy this product again. Also, etrailer (the company) was there for me when I had questions...nice people. 541440

This is a wonderful product. We pulled a 25 travel trailer on a long trip last year and I didnt have to worry about any sway on any road. The Blue Ox handles cross winds easy also. Very easy to use, I wouldnt buy anything else!

We have a 24' travel trailer pulled by a Suburban. This hitch levels everything out and makes handling much easier. Very little sway, only during windy storms and the suburban is much easier to drive. This hitch is also easy to set up (we were lucky to have a local store install it) and very well built. Etrailer delivered it fast, no damage and had the best price by far. 524533

I have had the Blue Ox 2,000 lbs WD hitch for a little over 1 year. My previous WD hitch was under capacity based on the tongue weight of my 37 ft travel trailer. This hitch has greatly improved the pulling stability of my trailer over the previous set-up. It has exceeded my expectations. 451573

Finally got around to installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro hitch with bolt on chain latches. The process was straight forward after viewing youtube vids, taking time to be sure all my measurements were correct. With the bolt on chain latches you do not get many chances to get it right. I could not use clamp on as my V-nose RV did not have room above the frame to clear the clamp on latch.. drilling was a pain as clearances on my frame were tight and I had to go around a electrical junction box on the inside of the frame.. but once on, it was a breeze to set up. The overall quality of the hitch was great and I don't miss having to set the angle of the hitch head (it's fixed) making the only adjustments necessary was hitch height and chain length. I initially set mine up using 9 links on the chain, but once I got out on the road, I noted the RV was riding nose low so I went up to 10 links on the chain. Now the truck and RV are level, the truck rides and handles as I expected. I have not had the rig out on a long haul, so I can't comment about the sway control of the hitch.Truck is a 2013 Ford F150 ecoboost, max tow 3.73 gears, rv is a 6600lb (empty) V-nose 25ft toy hauler. I like the chain latch set up. Easy to use especially on a V-nose trailer. The concept of sway control with the short length chain is feasible and after this week trip (with some interstate time), I will report back if it doesn't work as advertised. All in all I am happy with the hitch and of course happy with the eTrailer purchasing process. 102170


Comments
A year later and we have used this hitch many, many times and couldnt be happier with the purschase. Hook up is a breeze. Have had the chance on several occasions to get on the Interstate with the big trucks and wind and the sway control works. I am very pleased with the hitch. Thanks Blue Ox and eTrailer!

This weight distribution system is the best. It is easy to install and if you need to put it on a different trailer that has a different weight you just have to buy new distribution bars. 78458

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


Bought the Sway Pro to replace a hitch that had separate sway control. The Blue Ox works better on the road as trucks pass us and I really like backing up without loosening the sway friction. This Blue Ox WDH does not come with a ball. Had to have U-Haul tighten the 50mm nut on the 2 5/16” ball. Odd torque value for the hitch bolts too? Etrailer matched the prices and delivered in TWO days! 447330

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


Have used the SwayPro for 1 year now and overall very satisfied. I tow a 23' Airstream which weighs about 5500 lbs. The receiver hitch mount that comes with the SwayPro was unable to get the ball low enough as instructed in the Install Instructions so I gave Blue Ox a call and they immediately shipped out the one I needed and I shipped them the original. The BO SwayPro is fairly easy to operated and is quiet. I will say that it does not eliminate sway, I have tried several different adjustments but anytime I drive above 65mph, especially in headwinds or gusty conditions, sway is possible. The sway is manageable by slowing and never gets too bad but it will make you grip the steering wheel tighter. I was not surprised by this, just had a hard time shelling out the $2500 needed for the non-swaying hitches. 407456


Comments
The Blue Ox is performing fine, it does not eliminate sway but as long as I drive 65 mph or less, sway is rarely an issue. As you go over 65 sway can happen with adverse winds, semis passing, or poor road conditions. One other nuisance, is when I attempt to disconnect the chain on the right side, the chain sometimes gets wedged in the metal channel that you rotate and will not release. Usually I have to spray the area with a lubricant and then rotate the whole “chain engaging device” back and forth and the chain will become unstuck so that I can get the bar off. All else is fine, sometimes I do wish I had bought the Pro Pride but that seems a bit too complicated, heavy and expensive.

I have been using the Blue Ox SwayPro WD Hitch for 1,500 tongue weight on our 30' Arctic Fox travel trailer for one year now. No regrets as this hitch has been an easy to setup and use and it seems to do it's job nicely. Due to the height of our trailer's hitch I ordered a Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank to use with the SwayPro and the pair work great together. 135639

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


Have only used it to drive 15 miles from my trailer dealer to home, but I think I'm going to like this WDH. It seems to do the job, is relatively easy to use. The dealer I bought my trailer from mounted it for me, they'd done many before so it went quickly. Some hints I'd learned from them and discussion forums - use the trailer jack to lift the front of the trailer/back of the truck to make it easier and safer to install or remove the chains. Use a long breaker bar with a 1" socket for the same reason - the extra leverage over that with the tool supplied with the hitch helps. I painted the chain link on each side that the dealer hooked to so I could get the tension back the way they had it. Will have to see how that works out in the long run, may have to adjust up or down. FWIW, I measured the distance from the ground to the top of the front and rear fender wells on my truck before and after hooking up the trailer with the BO Sway Pro. The front ended up exactly where it was before, the rear dropped only one inch with 1000 lbs of hitch weight. I'd say the WDH is doing its job! 462535


Comments
Ive replaced the 1 socket with a 26mm socket, as it fits better. Only snag we are running into is that the u-bolts that hold the chains to the arms are being bent and worn down from occasional ground scrapes. Ive purchased a pair of the little u-bolts and four self locking nuts from e-trailer, so Ill be prepared if they ever do rub or break off completely.

I have both an Equalizer and this Blue Ox hitch. I purchased the Blue Ox after I complained of a poor ride with my travel trailer to the dealer. They recommended Blue Ox instead. Frankly it didn't improve the ride at all. Worse, the bars hung so low that they scraped on every speed bump. However this was exacerbated by the way I had to set it up to make the ride at least tolerable. I have now changed travel trailers and tried both hitches on the new one. The new travel trailer sits significantly higher and rides much better. I don't have the problem of the bars hitting the ground. The ride also seems much better then when I use the Equalizer. The final problem I have with this hitch is the that saddle that holds the chains seems to stick very frequently and requires that I release the pin and force it to release the chain with the provided wrench - resulting in frequent minor injuries. Not sure why this happens but I'm getting better at forcing the release with no injuries. Just irritating. 289769

I had the unfortunate experience with having your new airstream 20' taken out by a hydroplaning car last month. The airstream rolled right and on to its side, and the hitch released keeping our Suburban from rolling. The stabilizer bars and chains maintained the trailer connection and eased the stop with the rear tires of ground. The hitch bent the receiver on the truck, and the only damage appeared to be one " sprung" spring bar. A good result from a bad experience! 237404

The BEST Purchase I've made thus far!! Once I installed the new hitch system I can honestly say it made a 100% difference! I have a Mercedes ML500 and I pull a 17' Forest River Wildwood X-lite travel trailer. There is no more sag in the middle, both tow vehicle and trailer are level driving down the road and my SUV handles almost as if there is no trailer on the back! I HIGHLY Reccomend the "Blue Ox" System! It's the best! 513835


Comments
Still The BEST Purchase Ive made thus far for my trailer! Now that I have used it multiple times, I can say its a life saver in so many ways. My tow vehicle is stable on the road, breaking, maneuvering, the weight distribution has been key for me with a smaller set up and the Blue Ox continues to deliver. I Still HIGHLY Recommend the Blue Ox System to everyone!!

Easy and accurate ordering process. The item arrived ahead of my expected delivery date with everything as expected. I'll post an additional review after I install the hitch and give it a test drive. 744600

After purchasing/pulling my my 32’ weekend warrior with the supplied sway control, I was terrified by the amount of sway I was experiencing after fully loading with the toys. This Blue Ox tamed the beast 99%. Be mindful on how you distribute your load weight when overstuffing your toy hauler and you’ll have zero issues. Great product!! 716511

  • Comparing Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution Systems BXW0350, BXW0353 and BXW0356
    The three Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems you referenced, # BXW0350, # BXW0353 and # BXW0356, are all rated for the same tongue weight (up to 350-lbs) and fit a 2-inch hitch, but differ in application. Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Hitch # BXW0353 is made for a trailer that has a bottom-mount coupler, one that installs from underneath. Parts # BXW0350 and # BXW0356 are for standard couplers. Between these other two systems there are also different shanks included that...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2011 Nissan Frontier Towing a R-Pod Trailer
    Adding sway control will not necessarily help with a bumpy ride, but weight distribution is recommended when the weight of the trailer is greater than 50 percent of the tow vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). The bumpy ride is likely due to the fact that the tongue weight of the trailer is causing your truck to sag, so there is less movement for the suspension. For your situation, I recommend looking at the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution and Sway Control, # BXW0350. This...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2011 Toyota 4Runner
    As close as you are to the 2,000 lb rating that Toyota states you would need a WD system for I would recommend you go ahead and get one. 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 an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Typically tongue weight is 10-15...

  • Is Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Compatible with Aluminum Trailer Frame
    I reached out to my contact at Blue Ox who said that they don't have any stipulations about using the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW0350 with an aluminum frame trailer. Just note that you also need a hitch ball with this setup like the 2" # A-90 or the 2-5/16" # 19286. You also want to make sure that the loaded tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle doesn't exceed the 350 lb tongue weight rating for...

  • Can Blue Ox Weight Distribution System be Used Without Arms for Unloaded Trailer
    If you have an unloaded trailer and no need for the spring bars of the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - 3,500 lbs GTW, 350 lbs TW # BXW0350 then you can just remove the spring bars and the system will essentially just be a large ball mount.

  • Best Shank Recommendation for Giving Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Best Ground Clearance
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank # BXW4017 would be a great solution for you. Based on the picture you sent in you are currently using the height setting that the # BXW4017 provides so this shank would be an excellent solution.

  • Picking Out Weight Distribution Hitch for 2020 GeoPro G19BH
    When picking out a weight distribution you go by the loaded tongue weight of the trailer. This is the tongue weight of the trailer when it's fully loaded and ready to tow so like in your case when the storage is loaded on the front of the trailer. It also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle too. You ideally go with a system with a tongue weight range that your trailer's tongue weight falls right into the middle of. So your unloaded tongue weight...

  • Can a Weight Distribution System be Used on a Rustic Trail Tear Kodiak Stealth
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # BXW0350 will require a hitch ball with a 1" diameter shank or a hitch ball with a 1-1/4" diameter shank, not a ball mount. For this, I recommend using a hitch ball with a 1-1/4" diameter shank like part # A-90. The 1-1/4" diameter shank is going to give you a tighter fit. The entire system weighs around 80 lbs. In order to determine if this will work on your Rustic Trail Teardrop Kodiak Stealth you are going to need to do...

  • Are Long or Short Torsion Arms Better for a Weight Distribution System
    The reason long bars on weight distribution (WD) systems, like the Strait-Line # RP66074, are so popular is because that means the clamps for the trailer frame will sit about 30" away from the coupler. Typically this avoids items that sit on the tongue, like propane tanks. Short arms are a great substitute for when things like propane tanks get in the way. There really is no advantage or disadvantage of using long or short arms other than the location of other things on the tongue of...

  • Parts Needed To Tow Pop Up Camper With 2013 Kia Sorento
    I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885 for your 2013 Kia Sorento. This is our most popular because it is the easiest to install and use. This is a proportional controller which activates the trailer brakes in proportion to the brakes on your Sorento. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to install a brake controller from scratch. If you do not have the ball mount and ball for the hitch, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit, part # 989900....

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe and 1,890 Pound Trailer
    The first thing to check is if the hitch and vehicle are rated for use with weight distribution. For the trailer hitch there should be a sticker on it. If rated for weight distribution it will have 2 sets of capacities; one set for weight carrying (not using weight distribution) and another for weight distributing. If the hitch does not have a separate capacity for weight distributing then you would need a hitch that does such as # 75684. For the vehicle just check the towing section...
