Create a stable ride for your Toyota Tundra 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 Toyota Tundra 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 Toyota Tundra. 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 Toyota Tundra 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 Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - BXW1000 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number BXW1000, this is the Blue Ox Sway Pro weight distribution system. This unit's going to help evenly distribute the weight over the axis of the tow vehicle and the trailer for stability and control. Ultimately, a system like this is going to help create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. This unit is very unique. It has built-in sway control, and that's going to help prevent trailer sway as you travel down the road and experience those different types of conditions. The unit's going to apply constant tension in the trunnions, which is going to help force and keep the trailer in line. We're going to have the rotating lift brackets.

These are going to ensure that the chains are tight and secure to keep the spring bars from moving. These are going to be trunnion-style spring bars. These will flex appropriately for controlled, even ride. They automatically lock in place and can easily be removed. Here in the head assembly you have tab right here.

If you lift up on that, the bar can be removed from the head assembly. It's a really nice, simple design, and it can easily be installed just by pushing it back into place until that pin engages the bar. One of the neat things I like about this system is that there's only one pin and clip that you have to worry about. That's going to be the pin and clip to secure the adjustable shank into the hitch of the vehicle. Everything else on the system is going to be pin and clip free. It's all going to feature self-locking devices that are going to function throughout the system.

Again, the only one you're going to need is the one that's included for your hitch and to secure the adjustable shank inside your hitch. The unit is designed for two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with rate distribution systems. Here on the head assembly, we're going to have two grease zerks, located at the back of the area where the bars go into place, so if you ever need a maintenance that, just remove your bars and then you can swivel this to gain easier access to those zerk fittings. You're going to have one on this side and one this side. It allows for easy, simple, clean maintenance. Another unique thing to this system is that we're going to have the unique rotating latch lift brackets.

These are what connects the spring bars to the trailer. Very quick and simple to use. Simply just insert the lift chains into the slot, and then you rotate the bracket with the included wrench that's right there. Nice design, the wrench is large, solid steel, it's got a grip on it. It allows you to gain the leverage that you need to get everything in place, and also it keeps you a safe distance away from moving components. Clamp-on design, you don't have to worry about drilling. It's got the clamp-on brackets back here. These are going to take up about five inches along the trailer frame, and they're designed to fit trailer-frame widths no wider than 2 and 1/2 inches. When it comes to tilting the head assembly, you don't have to worry about that. The required tilt is built in to the head assembly, so no need for adjustments. Everything is going to be a steel construction, it's all powder coated for strength and durability. It's going to last a long time, and you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion with this system. This area here is going to be where your hitch ball installs. It is set up right now to receive an inch and a quarter diameter shank on the hitch ball, or you can use the included reducer sleeve, which goes in that area there and reduces the opening from 1 inch and 1/4 to 1 inch. This product is made right here in the USA, it's going to come with all the necessary hardware to get this installed. The tongue weight rating is 750 pounds to 1000 pounds with a gross towing weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. Again, it's for 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Your left brackets are going to be positioned about 29 inches back on the trailer frame from the center of the hitch ball. Real quick, I just want to show you the adjustable shank right here. You're larger hardware is going to be what attaches the head assembly to the actual shank, but I didn't install that because I wanted you to get a good look at the shank. Solid steel, same finish as your weight distribution systems, so it's going to really blend together well. Now if we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin, holding the front face of the adjustable shank, we're looking at a measurement of 10 inches. It's going to feature a 7 hole design, these are going to be separated on center apart from one another by an inch and a quarter. So one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and center on center, they're going to be separated by an inch and a quarter. The total height adjustment along the shank is going to be 13 inches, so you're going to have a maximum rise of 10 and 3/4 of an inch with this system, and then the drop is going to be zero. There is no drop with this system, but you do have that 10 and 3/4 inch rise. This can be positioned in the hitch, either in the drop or rise position to best fit your particular application. Blue Ox is also going to cover this unit with a limited lifetime warranty. It's going to come with detailed instructions, walking you through the installation process step-by-step, and as the owner, it's going to give you some helpful maintenance tips and owner responsibilities that you need to be made aware of. That's going to do it for today's look at part number BXW1000.

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

Comments

William,The system you received is correct. Blue Ox has updated their weight distribution system and removed the thumb screw to help simplify the install and set up. Blue Ox has found that the tilt built in to the system is sufficient for the WD system. Well be updating the photos as soon as their available.

The hitch was delivered in just a few days, earlier than expected. The hitch was exactly as described. The dealership attached the hitch to our Keystone Outback 298RE and Excursion without any problem. Our trip from Ohio to Colorado went without incident even though we traveled through wind, rain and snow. Hooking up the trailer with the SwayPro was no problem and very easy to use. 68467

After owning a couple other hitches including a Hensley the Blue Ox distribution hitch is my favorite and probably the only hitch I will own. Hooking up is easy enough however I would suggest using a socket attached to a break-over bar rather than the supplied wrench (just my opinion). I pull a 30ft Classic Airstream with a 3/4 ton HD Chevy Duramax and the Blue Ox with this combination is excellent. The only negative thing I have found about the hitch is over time it tends to get a little rust here and there so keep wiped down or touched up with similar paint. 321837

Ordered the Blue Ox BXW1000. The ordering process was easy and the item shipped right away. I received it very quickly and shipping was FREE! A good thing when your order weighs almost 100 pounds. Installation was straight forward. I have not had a chance to tow with the new hitch, but I am looking forward to not hearing all the pops and snaps I heard with the old Husky. I also am looking forward to better sway control. Thanks etrailer! 226321

So far the product works as advertised and was fairly east to install. It is far easier than other systems that we have had to hitch and unhitch. There seems to be little to no sway while trailering our 35' TT. As always etrailer was fantastic and delivered exactly as promised faster than expected. I will continue to use etrailer in the future. The only suggestion that I have for this product is that the tool for locking the chains up would be even better if the handle was rubber dipped. 62103

I have been installing the hitch and the 26000 lb 2&5/16" ball that I ordered. All went well until I tried to install the ball which has a 1& 7/8" nut which requires a socket to tighten the nut in the hitch enclosure. Not having that size socket I could not find one that size in the local retail stores. I have resorted to buying an Altrade socket on line from Home Depot for $14. Hopefully it will fit in side the hitch nut enclosure. 145514

Let me start off by saying why I wanted sway control. My first trip up Oregon's I5 between Eugene and Portland with my 28' Komfort Lite trailer in a moderate cross breeze, lots of semi's and fast traffic. Not a good first time experience, slowed from 60mph to 50mph to make it tolerable for me. Saw other trailers zoom by me at much faster speeds and looked to be pretty solid-no sway. Had no clue which system to choose, so I looked at all that was available on the site. Many looked very complex and the reviews on each were mostly positive. So, I choose to go simple with the Blue Ox, easy 20 min bolt on. Did have to make a 1/2" adjustment on the latch brackets, as per the instructions, to have the chains straight up and down. I haven't been on the road yet, but my initial hook up attempt has highlighted a couple of issues. First, with all the tongue weight on the TV, there is no way you will be able to attach the chain where you want it. No biggie, as with the old system, just use the tongue jack to raise everything up until you can get to the link you want. Had to go higher than I was used to, but still OK. Second, when unhooking (again, with weight on tongue jack), knuckles come very close to the spring bar on one side. Don't get distracted when rotating the latch to release the chain! Also, the chain wants to "snap" out of the slot at some point when rotating. I may want to retire the supplied wrench and go with a socket, short extension, and breaker bar just to keep my hands away from these potential hazards. As always, the ordering process was great. Helps a lot when everybody understands what you are trying to do, then convey what you need. Rich 252276

Hitch is doing its job! Semis arent an issue anymore so Im more relaxed when towing. Those big delivery box trucks have more of an effect than semis, but no problem. Happy I got this hitch.

Using with a 27 foot Lance trailer and 2015 Jeep grand Cherokee. Shipping and packing from e trailer great. Hitch well made and easy to install. Replacing a Reese weight distribution hitch w/sway control that wasn't up to the job. Blue Ox controls sway well and tows much more smoothly-vibrations with old hitch eliminated. Only dissatisfaction is with the paint. Several nicks/chips in the paint as delivered and over time some rusting of the latch mechanisms. Called Blue Ox-they said no touch up paint available. Used some Rustoleum that somewhat matches the texture and color. Would really like some OE paint from Blue Ox! 281073

Just took out of the box and hooked it all up. Took less than an hour to get everything out of the box and hooked up to my 36' TT. Quality looks really impressive. I know what quality looks like as my family business owns a high end sheet metal and fabrication shop. This is something if we made it would look like. I had my engineer look at it and he was impressed ! I hope this hitch, for the money, is worth it. I will write another review after the 4th of July when I haul it down the road and put it through testing. 206620

I purchased this weight distribution hitch to tow my 24 ft enclosed car trailer. The weight distribution and sway control are great. I also really like that the leveling bars do not have grease on them. I like the thought look of the powder coating. I am disappointed with the corrosion protection of the trailer attachment and the hitch. They started showing sign of corrosion quickly. The hitch was only left out in the rain for a day or two and it showed signs of corrosion. 422378

I got this hitch to tow my 27FB Airstream. It was easy to install and the ride quality is great.

This product does what it says it will do. My trailer was rock solid on the highway with heavy semi traffic all around me. The engaging of the trunnion bars is easy to adjust and engage. Even the installer said when I picked my trailer that installation and set up was much easier than others that he had dealt with. Pricier than most but for the performance and safety factor, well worth the investment. 176524

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.

The product was delivered on time, however the shipping box was in pieces. It was so bad that some of the parts were hanging out of the box 557636

I am not one to write reviews, but with an experience like this I am compelled to! I came for the quality American made products, and will continue to come back because of the EXCEPTIONAL customer service!!! The tech line ladies really know their stuff! I called three times to research what I wanted and all three were able to offer legitimate advise way past just reading a spec sheet. SO refreshing to be treated like a Valued customer. This is how to earn repeat business and some serious word of mouth advertising! 571341

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


I bought the Blue Ox BXW1501 SwayPro to pull a 26ft car trailer that I normally haul 7-8000lbs. I was having issues with my trailer swaying at highway speeds when empty. The Blue Ox stopped the sway and smoothed out the ride when loaded. The only issue I have is that once you disconnect the trailer, the weight of hitch is pretty heavy and you cannot drive around with it in. I can carry it but is heavy. I would assume this is an issue with any sway bar set up, but just thought I would mention. 402421

I have been very happy with the performance of this hitch. Our first time out I was on a cross wind that was very harsh and was worried with my 36'. Unlike other trailers on the road, I was not fishtailing. I was still fighting the wind, but was not all over the road had I used a different setup. My only issue is the difficulty of getting the chains on and off without them popping. Other than that, I highly recommend for stability!!! 299824

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

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.

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Proper Adjustment of a Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
  • Ideally there should be 5 chain links on your Blue Ox weight distribution hitch between the spring bars' ends and the top of the rotating lift brackets. If there are fewer than 5 links you can try adjusting the hitch head back (toward the trailer and away from the tow vehicle) until you have 5 links between them. If this cannot be done you should consider re-installing the system from scratch; the installation instructions are linked for you. For the system to work as intended the angle...

  • Recommended Chain Position on Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1000
  • When installing the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control, # BXW1000, the suggested starting point is to have three full chain links showing under the latch. I have attached a picture, as well as an installation video, for you.

  • Determining if Underslung Weight Distribution System is Needed for Trailer
  • The primary difference between the standard Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System # BXW1000 and the Blue Ox # BXW1003 that is designed for underslung couplers simply has to do with the reduced ground clearance that you would have with an underslung coupler. The weight distribution head for the underslung model features a different angle where the hitch ball mounts, which allows trailers with this type of coupler to use the system without having any clearance issues with the spring...

  • Will the 7-Hole Blue Ox Weight Distribution Shank Fit my 2017 Ford F-250
  • When measuring for the correct weight distribution shank, you need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your truck's trailer hitch receiver, not the bottom. With that being said I can assume that the above distance on your truck is around 20-1/2". Therefore, you need a weight distribution shank with a rise of 3/4". The 7-hole shank included with the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # BXW1000 has up to an 8" rise so there won't be any issues....

  • Trailer Sways with the Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System # BXW1000
  • Your truck, trailer and weight distribution system all appear to be compatible with each other, If you are still experiencing sway after installing the Blue Ox Sway Pro Weight Distribution System, # BXW1000, there are a few things we can look at. The first thing that I would look at is the tongue weight of the trailer. The tongue weight of the trailer, when it is loaded and ready to tow, should be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If the tongue weight is too light or too heavy,...

  • Troubleshooting Sway With Blue Ox 1000 lb Swaypro
  • When continuing to experience sway while using the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # BXW1000, I recommend making adjustments. I don't recommend starting with making changes to your tongue weight, but rather adjusting the number of links. The bars are intended to have tension on them, so some bowing while under load is normal so it sounds like you can put a little more weight on your bars by increasing a link at a time until...

  • Recommended Grease for Blue Ox SwayPro System, Different Types of Grease
  • You are correct that in the Blue Ox SwayPro Owner's Manual they do recommend use molybdenum grease on both the hitch ball and the spring bars. The UltraLub Biobased Moly EP Grease # L10314 in a grease gun, such as # L30480, will work well. You could use the Reese White Grease Hitch Ball Lube # 58117 on the hitch ball of your SwayPro system if you choose not to use the molybdenum grease. However you would not want to use the hitch ball grease at the zerk fittings of the SwayPro spring...

  • Upgraded Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for Towing 11,000lb Trailer
  • So you're looking for higher rated spring bars for a Blue Ox SwayPro weight distributing system, is that correct? The spring bars you use will depend on the fully loaded tongue weight of the trailer. The weight of any cargo carried behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle should be included as tongue weight. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to determine your actual trailer tongue weight. The highest rated spring bars Blue Ox offers are rated for 15,000lbs towing,...

  • Measuring the Height Setting of the Hitch Ball on My Weight Distribution with Sway Control Hitch
  • To measure where the height of your ball should be for towing, I would start by measuring the trailer tongue unhooked and on level ground from the ground to the bottom of the coupler, just like you would for a ball mount. Then on your vehicle, I would measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on your trailer hitch receiver. The difference in height will help you know how to adjust the head on the shank of your Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution system to make the ball...

  • Tips To Prevent Sway When A Semi Truck Passes You
  • I am happy to help with your sway issues. To fight trailer sway your best defense is proper trailer loading. If you can load your trailer so that 10 to 15 percent of the total weight of the trailer is tongue weight you will be doing well. The purpose of weight distribution is to take some of the tongue weight and actually distribute it back up to the front axle of the trailer which will also help with sway. It will also help with sagging rear suspension and improve handling/braking. Sway...
