Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Quieter ride than systems with steel brackets or cams - no scraping or loud popping
  • One of the only systems out there specifically designed for use with underslung couplers

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. Clamp-on system uses optimal points of tension to help prevent sway while it balances your trailer's load for a more level ride.

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.

Works well. Upgraded from Equal-i-zer 1k/10k due to hitch weight. Sway control seems to be about equal and hitching & unhitching is much easier due to lower jacking height required. Hitch adjustment is MUCH easier. 480148

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 product is great but the customer service needs to be dealt with. I ordered what I thought was the right sway controll bar and they sent me the wrong one to start with, then I ordered the right one and they sent it to me, but I have yet to recieve my credit on my card. They told me a week ago that it was already back to you and I don't understand why we have not recieved our credit on our card yet. Scott Gard 191085

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

Great hitch. Weve taken 3 trips to other states and have even had a tire blow out and this hitch is so good, I almost forget the trailer is there.

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!

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


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.

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

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

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!!

This hitch corrected my towing issues perfectly. I was ready to buy a new truck but as the tech advisor said, that won't correct your problem. He, Wayne, explained the problem was the hitch. He recommended the BXW2000 or BXW1500. I opted to purchase the BXW2000, overkill, but it works great. I've been on three trips with my 37' rv trailer with no issues. Also, I could have found the hitch cheaper elsewhere but the customer service at etrailer is excellent which is priceless. Thank you to Kaylyn R for all of your assistance and follow-up.

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

The SwayPro bars are aptly named. My first trip with these bars was through the windy Columbia River Gorge. There was a marked improvement over the load distribution hitch I used previously. The SwayPro was easy to install (but a good torque wrench is needed). Once installed, hookup was also big improvement over a standard load distribution hitch. 651468

This weight distribution system is a replacement for my original system which failed after 8 years of hauling a variety of travel trailers. I spent some time researching the type I wanted and the Blue Ox SwayPro was highly recommended by a fellow airstreamer. I was impressed with its simplicity and no additional sway control being required. The website is excellent, you just put in your vehicle details and the appropriate systems are displayed. The BXW 1506 is for 1500 lbs maximum tongue weight and comes with the eleven hole, 2” receiver hitch mount. I needed to mount with the long portion pointing down, this gave me about 4” of ground clearance. (Ideal for ripping permafrost but not state park campgrounds). The support from customer service was outstanding and the appropriate part BXW4001 was selected and shipped very quickly. The hitch was installed using the enclosed instructions and after viewing videos on the etrailer website. It looks good and seems to be doing what it is intended to do. I have a short camping trip in a few days so this will test the system. Thank you etrailer for your swift knowledgeable service. 613050

Pulling a 34ft travel trailer with a f-150 3.5 eco boost. I would get a lot of sway with my normal weight distribution hitch. Did tons of research and read tons of reviews and watched a lot of videos. Decided on the blue ox sway pro. This thing is a beast. Haven’t got to use yet. But am excited for this years camping season. Super fast shipping and awesome price match. Great customer service. 609772

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


I’m not very happy with my purchase. The weight distribution hitch I purchased does not fit on my trailer. There is a welded support bracket right where the hitch bracket is supposed to go 29 inches back on my trailer. Can the bracket go further back or does it need to go right above the chain? I’ve attached a photo of my issue. 579199


Comments

Yes this blue ox weight distribution system part # BXW1006 does require the brackets to be positioned 29 inches from the hitch ball. Since you have a support bar where the bracket does need to be positioned this weight distribution system will not work for your trailer. I recommend the equalizer system part # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$657.95
. The sway control brackets on the equalizer system can be positioned 27 inches to 32 inches back from the coupler. It handles tongue weight from 700 to 900 pounds and will still allow for backing up. It also includes the 2 5/16 inch ball and shank.

  • Recommended 2-1/2 Inch Shank for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
  • Yes, the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Shank part # BXW4018 will work with the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution part # BXW1503. Please note the above is for underslung (coupler under frame) couplers which are not very common. If you have an overslung (coupler above frame) coupler then you would want to use the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution part # BXW1500 instead. I have attached a list for you that shows the 2-1/2" weight distribution shanks which are compatible with the...

  • Comparison Of Three 15,000-LB Blue Ox Weight Distribution Systems
  • We have three 15,000-lb Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems. Part # BXW1500 has an adjustable shank that has an 8-inch maximum rise and 2-inch maximum drop. Part # BXW1506 includes a shank that has a 13-inch maximum rise and 7-inch maximum drop. Part # BXW1503 has a shank with -inch maximum rise and 2-inch maximum drop, but is an underslung system that is designed for trailers with a lower coupler. All three systems are rated for 15,000-lbs with tongue weight capacities...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Jayco Jay Flight Trailer with Underslung Coupler
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want to consider the total tongue weight of your setup. This will not only include the loaded tongue weight of your Jayco Jay Flight Trailer, but also any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your Ford F-250. Ideally, you will want this number to fall somewhere around the middle of the tongue weight capacity range for the weight distribution system you choose. I recommend verifying the loaded tongue weight of your trailer...

  • Blue Ox SwayPro Clamp-On Underslung Weight Distribution for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • All of the Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems come with the shank. To add a 2-1/2 inch shank that will work with the SwayPro system I recommend # BXW4018. I do not recommend mixing weight distribution parts since they have not been tested together. Or you could use SwayPro system # BXW2003 which comes with the 2-1/2 inch shank and is rated for up to 2,000 pounds tongue weight. For a 2-5/16 inch ball I recommend # 63840. I have included some helpful links on weight distribution...

  • 1,500 lb Tongue Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with Underslung Coupler
  • We carry the Blue Ox weight distribution systems that are specifically designed for use with underslung couplers like what you have that would be your ideal solution. The SwayPro part # BXW1503 has the same capacity as the Curt you referenced but since it is designed for underslung couplers it's the better route to go.

  • Troubleshooting Movement Between Trailer Coupler and Hitch Ball On Weight Distribution System
  • There will be some play with any ball and coupler because the trailer has to rotate. However, it sounds like you have too much movement because putting another hitch ball in place seemed to fit better. I recommend changing the hitch ball in your weight distribution system if it is no longer the correct size. If the coupler you have is an underslung coupler that may have something to do with the noise as well. We do have weight distribution systems that are specifically designed for...

  • Is Blue Ox SwayPro Adjusted Properly with 1 inch Height Difference on a 2018 Chevy Silverado
  • Since your trailer height and the height of your 2018 Chevy Silverado are within an inch of the original height it sounds like you have the Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW1503 installed correctly. If you want to try to level it out even more then you can do some slight adjustments but being that close to level you should be just fine!

  • Is Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Tongue Weight Scale Compatible with Weight Distribution System
  • Unfortunately, the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Tongue Weight Scale # WSUN-1 is not compatible with any weight distribution systems like the Blue Ox Sway Pro # BXW1503. The best way to determine your tongue weight for use with a weight distribution system is to use a tongue weight scale, part # 5780. Also, don't forget to add in the weight of anything you have stored in your tow vehicle behind its rear axle.
