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.

by:

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

We have a 23 foot Airstream we pull with a Suburban and use the Blue Ox Sway distribution hitch. We purchased this a year ago and went on 10 weekend trips last summer 6 of them over the continental divide in Colorado. This summer we have been on 3 weekend trips and once over the continental divide. We have many more trips planned. The hitch is easy to hook up and was easy to install. Etrailer was great at helping getting the correct size bars. We have pulled the trailer in rain and winds and feel very secure in any road condition we have encountered. No issues with backing up. Nice hitch I recommend it. 809748

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


Comments
Pulled my trailer weighing nearly 10,000 lbs from NY to Houston TX. The hitch performed perfectly and kept the trailer under control in fact I barely knew it was behind me. I used the 1500 lb bars on the way there and the 750 lb bars on the way back when the trailer was empty. Im 100 happy with this purchase!

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

I just received this yesterday, and will be using it this weekend to tow a 34 1/2' Toy Hauler home from Virginia. It is extremely heavy/well made and the powder coating looks like it was applied very well. Should be a great W.D. hitch system that will last for many years 310976

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I love the Blue OX. Much easier to use and maintain than the Equalizer, which is what I had previously. I think the BO is equal in effectiveness at sway control to the EQ but not sure because I'm now pulling a bigger trailer. The cam latch system with the BO is easy to use but you must raise the trailer tongue "to the sky" in order to release the tension from the load bars before releasing the chains. The load bars will slam down if you're not careful creating a hazard if you're not careful. 496829

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!

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I purchased the Blue Ox Sway Pro (15,000 lbs GTW) clamp on to pull my 14K tilt bed PJ T6 trailer. The trailer is a 6 inch C channel frame trailer. I worked with Troy who was very helpful and assured me that I would get the Blue Ox in time for a trip within the next 4 days. The shipping was very fast and I received it in just 2 days. However, I did not understand the clamp on set up is only for box framed trailers. Therefore the clamp on lift brackets would not work correctly. I did not see this information anywhere on the site regarding which trailer frame type is right for the various setups (box or C channel). I called Etrailer after finding this out and was told I could purchase the bolt on lift brackets separately but I would basically eat the ones I had. So my weight distribution hitch would now cost me NOT HAPPY. Be sure to ask about the type of lift bracket attachment for your trailer frame type. 438432

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


In the box are two 12 SWL 3300lbs quick link shackles. Not shown in parts or instructions. Do these have a purpose? Also the 12mm threads on the clamp-on rotating latches for the tightening bolts were painted, thus the bolts would not screw into the clamp. I had to use a tap to clean out the threads. Other than the above the unit seem to be good and heavy duty. 598548


Comments
It does the job but is very heavy due to the hitch being the largest they make. You need to be careful attaching and detaching the spring arms. I found the best way is to raise the trailer as high as possible when attached to the truck hitch. This relieves the tension enough to make install and removal of spring arms easier. The install video showed 3 exposed chain links when attaching spring arms. I have found 4 is better.

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

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


I decided to give a SwayPro hitch a try when I purchased a new TT (37' TT). The previous two Equalizer hitchs (24' TT and 33' TT) I had owned worked fine, but I hated having to stop and get out to tighten/loosen the anti-sway device when having to maneuver around and they were noisy. I installed the SwayPro myself, it was very easy to do. The instructions are clear, and the online videos very helpful. I waited to make this review until after making a couple of trips with the trailer. The trailer is very locked in behind the vehicle and that sucking over as a large vehicle goes past was non-existent, was very surprised and happy. I expected a little of this since this trailer is taller and longer than my last ones. Love being able to remove the equalizer bars and store in the trailer compartment without worrying about getting grease everywhere. Super easy to get hooked up and ready to go. I spent a few dollars more getting the SwayPro. Every extra dollar was worth every penny, this is a great hitch design with many advantages, wish this had been my first equalizer type hitch. 567629

Review from a similar SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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!!

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 SwayPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

  • 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.

Since trailer tongue weight is typically 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight the Blue Ox Sway Pro part # BXW0550 would be the better option as it has a range of 350 lbs - 550 lbs which seems to be a better fit for the weight of the trailer you listed as well as the towing capacity of the Ford Explorer you mentioned. If you need a higher range though...

  • How To Upgrade an 8K Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System to a 10K System
    I have great news for you, you don't have to buy a new system to get a higher capacity. The spring bars on the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # BXW0750 can be swapped out for the Replacement 10K Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW4007 which will then give you more of a safety margin and most likely help reduce the additional trailer sway you are experiencing. Please note, the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Setting Up Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution on 2007 Chevy Tahoe w/ Auto Level Suspension
    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. If it were my vehicle, I'd try it GM's way first, and do a few test runs. If you aren't happy with the weight distribution provided by the SwayPro at that point, try disabling or deflating...

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Recommendation for Keystone Passport 2670BH
    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. Choosing a system with a tongue weight rating that is too low will be essentially useless in distributing the trailer's weight, and a system that has a tongue weight rated too high will cause a very stiff, rigid ride. With a tongue weight of 625 pounds, you would want to use the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution with Sway Control # BXW0750. This...

  • 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...

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control with Lightweight Shank, Head and Trailer Ball
    Due to the enormous amount of leverage that the spring bars exert on the receiver hitch on the vehicle, the weight distributing shank, ball and weight distribution head the ball attaches to are as heavy as they are out of necessity, to a large degree. The Reese Steadi-Flex, part # RP66558, which is similar to the Equal-I-zer uses a shank, weight distribution head and trailer ball that have a combined weight of about 41 lbs. The # RP66558 has a 600 lb tongue weight/6,000 lb GTW capacity,...

  • How Tight of a Turn Can you Get Into While Reversing with a Weight Distribution Installed
    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. Obviously you can get into a much tighter turn when backing than going forward but if you don't go further in reverse than what your...

  • Recommended Blue Ox Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Dry Tongue Weight of 505 lbs
    The Andersen system isn't bad, it just hasn't had the same amount of testing in the market for that newer design. The Blue Ox system has been around for a while and has shown that it is a durable and reliable system.
