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.

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

I've installed the hitch but not yet used it. However, it's all that they say it is -- sturdy, easy to install and I expect that it will last me many years. I especially like the fact that the bars can easily be removed and that they are not greased as I also purchased a set of 1500 lb bars for use when the trailer is at max and will use these 750 lb bars when the trailer is empty or lightly loaded. 655943

Have not installed hitch yet but it is a high quality item. The main reason for this review is the incredible service I got with etrailer. I had questions and called on a Saturday afternoon. The representative was able to answer all my questions except one. She explained the manufacturer, being a Saturday, was closed and ask if she could call me back on Monday with an answer. As she promised she called Monday with a complete answer for the question. At which time I order the product. This was a heavy, expensive hitch. Here it is Wednesday and it has arrived. UNBELIEVABLE SERVICE! I recieved several emails with progress on the order and could not be more pleased. Their price was the best I could find. I look forward to buying from them again when needed. Ashley the rep, that helped me was top notch and very knowledgeable with regards to the products. Thank you Ashley and etrailer. 475788

This is my second Sway Pro on another trailer. I love that it's not a greasy mess (the bars stay clean and so easy to store) and the setup is straightforward. I've towed ~15k miles with this system and felt great confidence the entire time. 281774

The Blue Ox weight distribution and sway control...truly a solid addition to my towing needs. It is very well made, finished well and works exactly as it is supposed to. The price cannot, that I could find, be beat. Throw in the fact that Etrailer has very good videos to explain installation and operation of most of their products, then you have a winning combination. I am very happy with the product and price. 265026

The etrailer.com support before and after that sale was the BEST! Hard to believe how GREAT these people are!!!! The videos made installation easy. I am amazed how well built and HEAVY the Blue Ox is. I had to adjust the hitch height a few times, but now that it is done, I have NO problem quickly setting up the Sway Pro. It seem to perform well with pulling my Airstream and I consider the Blue OX well worth the money for the extra control and safety it provides. 226322

I contacted Blue Ox before ordering this setup. Gave them all the weight specs on my Tow vehicle and trailer. They recommended this weight range setup. Installation was clearly explained within the instructions included. Unfortunately I could not get the hitch to transfer any weight to the front of the truck nor could I get the truck to level out after connecting to the trailer, even after applying maximum preload to the spring bars. Leveling the trailer was simple, but weight transfer was not possible. I've requested an RMA to return this setup to Etrailer. I reinstalled my original Equalizer hitch setup that worked fine just noisy when making tight turns. I thought the Blue Ox would be an improvement. 204314

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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

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

This system works great. Needs to have a better system to lock in the parts that go on your trailer rails. Sometime they come loose.

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

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.

Well built product-solid product! My friend highly recommended this Blue Ox Sway Bar. I seen it on his truck when he came to our camp. I didn't have one. I'll be using this sway bar real soon. USA made...I hope? No Blue Ox Bull - from China. Keep on working hard, Ron 67772

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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.

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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!!

  • How to Adjust Weight Rating of Weight Distribution Hitch to Match Loaded Trailer Tongue Weight
    As long as your camper's frame is made of steel and the manufacturer approves use of a weight distribution hitch such as the Blue Ox Sway Pro # BXW0750 you won't hurt the trailer by installing it but you also won't get the best performance from it if the spring bars are rated so much higher than your actual loaded trailer tongue weight. The actual fully-loaded trailer's tongue weight (TW) should fall in the middle of the system's operating range. If the tow vehicle has any cargo behind...

  • Weight Distribution for a Micro Minnie 2108DS Travel Trailer
    I took a look at several pictures of the 2108DS Micro Minnie trailers and they have a regular coupler and not a bottom-mount or underslung style coupler. Your particular model has a 7,000 pound gross trailer weight and dry it weighs 3,900 pounds. The dry tongue weight is 410 pounds meaning it is 10.5 percent of the gross trailer weight. Going by that same 10.5 percent the tongue weight can be as much as 735 pounds. The goal is to use a weight distribution system that puts the tongue...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Rockwood Mini Lite 2109 Trailer
    For your Rockwood Mini Lite 2109 trailer I actually recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System - 12,000/1,200 Pounds # RP66084 because it will better match your potential tongue weight and the Strait-Line systems do a much better job with sway control compared to the Blue Ox system you were also looking at. When picking out a weight distribution system the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your setup. This includes both the loaded tongue...

  • Choosing the Correct Blue Ox SwayPro for Towing a 2018 Coachmen Clipper 17BHS with a 2010 Expedition
    You are on the right track of trying to calculate the tongue weight of your loaded trailer before purchasing a weight distribution (WD) system, but the best way to do this is to either use a vehicle scale to get the tongue weight (TW) of your fully loaded trailer use a TW scale like part # 5780 to do the same thing. Once you know the TW of your fully loaded trailer (which when properly loaded should be 10%-15% of the weight of the loaded trailer) you also need to include the weight of...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation Towing 630 lb Tongue Weight Travel Trailer
    To avoid trailer sway you want the tongue weight to be 10 percent of the total trailer weight. Your best option is going to be to keep the tongue weight and total trailer weight under the capacities of your vehicle and aim for the tongue weight to also be 10 percent. A weight distribution system will not change the towing capacities of your vehicle. But a lot of vehicles will have a second weight capacity for towing when a WD system is used so you can check the sticker on your hitch...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 26 foot long Trailer with 5200 lb GVWR
    For your 2015 GMC Canyon, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13203. Then for your weight distribution system to help with sag and sway, I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On # BXW0750. This system will do a very good job of controlling sway and is a better option than the Fastway system in my opinion. For a 2 inch diameter hitch ball I recommend # A-90. For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball I recommend # 19286.

  • Can I Secure the Spring Bars on my Weight Distribution System Without my Trailer Connected
    You can secure the bars when not in use, but it is not recommended since the weight distribution system was not meant to be used like that. Instead, a unique feature of the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution # BXW0750 is that there are locking pins where the bar inserts into the bracket on the head which will enable you to easily remove the bars. You simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out, no need to worry about damaging the brackets during removal. I attached...

  • Calculating Tongue Weight to Pick Out a Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    The tongue weight of your trailer is just the vertical weight that is present at the coupler. You would not need to factor in weight transferred from the front axle to the rear. You would need to just put the tongue's weight of the trailer on a scale to get its weight and then add in any weight behind the rear axle. I attached a help article that covers this more for you to check out as well. Now before we go any further I cannot recommend you exceed the weight capacity of your trailer....

    We've always been told that when installing a weight distribution system on a vehicle equipped with an auto-leveling suspension, you want to disable it if possible. However, we don't make a practice of contradicting any recommendations made by the vehicle manufacturers. I agree with your assessment.

    When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want to select a system based on your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight.

  • Will Blue Ox Weight Distribution System With SwayPro Allow Backing Up The Trailer While Engaged
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System, part # BXW0750 allows you to back up your trailer with the system installed. Many of the weight distribution systems use a sway control bar that is different from the Blue Ox system which builds the sway control into the system and eliminates the need for an additional bar. You can use the Blue Ox system with confidence and be able to back your trailer up without a hitch (pun intended).

    With weight distribution systems you have to be careful not to jackknife the trailer as you are backing up as you can cause a spring bar to pop out or possibly break along with the head of the system. The best way to know how tight of a turn you can do is to compare the tightness of the turn while backing to how tight of a turn you can do going forward.

For a trailer in this weight range, I recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control, part # RP66084.
