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.

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

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


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!

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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.

The hitch was delivered today. Everything arrived in good condition and I was pleasantly surprised that the hitch has a 2 1/2" shank. The hitch seems to be very well made. The welds are nice and the finish (powder coat?) looks great. I'm looking forward to getting this mounted and taking the trailer out for a trip. 214850


Comments

The hitch works very well. Im not a fan of the wrench Blue Ox supplies to rotate the cams. I had a situation where the pin didnt lock the cam in place due to dirtsnow/ice but didnt notice. When I relaxed the tension on the cam, it rotated back down and smacked my had against the frame rail. I now use a 15 breaker bar with a 3 extension to give my hand some clearance- just in case it happens again!

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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


I purchased this hitch system to pull a 10,500 pound V-nose enclosed 8.5'x28' - 8' high trailer. I had to purchase the 1500 pound tongue weight system and because of the cargo that's loaded. I had to cut off 3 inches of the bottom of the receiver, because it hung down to low. I pull all of this with the 2016 ford F150 Max trailer package which sits lower than a heavy duties, that's where I attribute having to cut off 3 inches because it was scraping into the ground as I drove. Other than that issue this hitch system all but removes every bit of sway up to approximately a 45 mile an hour side wind. It is so simple to back up with the system as well, not having to remove the bars is awesome. If you are trailering anything with the F1 50 you should also purchase a spring package for the rear leaves to help with the tongue load is well. Now that we worked The bugs out it is a great system and will continue to use this on all trailers until something better comes along, I could not recommend this enough !!!! 421202

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


For Etrailer, A+ for excellent customer service as usual! Shipping was very quick. Regarding the hitch, I think this one is going to be a real winner. Installation was quick and easy. Anyone with basic tools can easily install and setup this hitch. The only thing most people won't have is the 1 7/8" socket needed to tighten the nut that secures the ball to the hitch itself. You'd also need a torque wrench or impact wrench that can achieve [specs]. Instead, I just took it to a local shop. It took them two minutes and they didn't even charge me. After installing and setting up the hitch, I took measurements of the height of the truck's front fender both hitched and unhitched. It was exactly the same, which as I understand is ideal. Without any weight distribution, the front of the truck rises about 1/2" when you drop the trailer on the ball. I haven't towed with the new setup yet, but I expect it to do really well based on what I'm seeing so far. I'll come back and update after my first trip next week. 360559

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


I replaced a broken old Eaz-lift hitch with this one on a 10k cargo trailer. The difference in ride quality is night and day. Well worth the step up in price. I feel like I'm driving a Cadillac compared to before. Set-up was easy, instructions were clear and concise. I greatly enjoyed not having to set the angle as it is built in. (Less to adjust, less that can go wrong/break). I do a lot of backing up at sharp angles as I use my trailer for food deliveries in tight spaces behind small restaurants/stores. I've not had any issues with this hitch while doing so. My load weights also vary greatly from beginning to end of day (full vs. empty). It is as smooth empty as it is full. The bars have a broad tongue weight rating range which works great for my application! I've not had it long enough to comment on long-term durability, but it is built tough and engineered smart. I expect it to last as long as I do. You get what you pay for. Great product! 172406

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

Larry,Thank you for your review. The clamps on this WDS part number: BXW1506 will not install properly on a c-channel trailer frame. c-channel frames will need the bolt on bracket option part number: BXW4021.

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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


First one was super easy to install, although it is absolutely heavy. Adjustment was easy. Attaching and detaching to the trailer is easy. I am at the maximum towing capacity of my truck, and this hitch works. No sway, no lift in the front. The back does squash down quite a bit, but I have a 100% stock suspension; no airbags. My hitch was stolen. Someone broke the lock and removed it. I quickly purchased another one. This would have been a 5 star rating, except for the shank of the second hitch. There seems to be too much powder coating on the shank. Even with some persuasion, I am unable to put the shank into the receiver. I submitted an issue to etrailer and look forward to hearing from them soon. I have had nothing but great dealings with etrailer and when I had to purchase the second hitch, I went straight back to them. 273180

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

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

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

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

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


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

What is your tongue weight on the blue ox ? I have a Keystone outback 277RL 35 feet and looking at a blue ox 1500 tw and wondering if this the proper one to buy.

Review from a similar Blue Ox SwayPro in Weight Distribution


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

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

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 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

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

Excellent company and product. After dealing with in my opinion less than professional dealership sending me on the road with a hitch setup at half the weight capabilities of what was required I was very pleased at the service and speed of delivery of this product. The installation of the hitch was simple and i quickly installed the hitch at about $200 savings from a supposed rock bottom price of the dealer. I feel safe now Great work etrailer Poor work Dick Gore 178002

Don't know about blue ox yet. Don't really see how this mechanism can provide any more sway control than any other weight distribution hitch. But I do know about e-trailer. They are the most helpful people on the planet. When the local camping world couldn't supply a hitch at the last minute, I called e-trailer. They had the blue ox in Boise in 36 hours from my call and no shippong. Over the years e-trailer has never failed to exceed expectation. 280395

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

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

I ordered the Blue OX BXW1500. Installation was easy, I will be testing it next week for the first time. etrailer's customer service was wonderful. I worked with Sarah, she was a wonderful help. After ordering the hitch, I found it for a lower price. etrailer refunded the difference plus another 10% of the difference with no questions asked. I highly recommend etrailer for all your camping needs. Thanks Jason 360591

Great product and I really like: - the powder coating - containment of grease in the joints - no adjustable hitch ball head needed as you change load factors in your trailer. As usual the guys at etrailer went above and beyond as I had a deadline need and they got it to me two days before that without unnecessary upcharges. Great personal service makes them more than your usual internet company. 283235

Everything I ordered worked perfect the Primus IQ proportional braking system went in my truck in five minutes. This was possible because of ordering the wiring harness for my vehicle. Worth every dime. The blue ox distribution hitch and sway bar works perfectly and very easy to install. I am a real person and would recommend etrailer for all your needs delivery was quick and free shipping a real plus. 200607

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


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

Purchased hitch from Etrailer but accidently purchased the wrong size to my dismay there is no order cancel option anywhere on the website so I emailed the customer service 15 mins after purchase then I called in the morning to my dismay they had already shipped it since the shipping department arrives at 5am and they do not get in till 7 am so now I'm stuck paying $80 for the return shipment. 212610

Blue Ox hitch was relatively easy to install and set up. Haven't had a chance to get on the road with it but from another I know it should do just fine. Customer Service was great. They got me all the things I wanted but didn't find on the website. Hitch arrived in less than a week. Jena checked with me a couple of times to make sure I was satisfied and ask if I had any questions. 193595

Easy to install. I was very curious as to how this would work as both a weight distributing hitch and sway control all in one. I was very surprised. I have used it on 3 trips on a 4 lane highway at highway speeds and with being passed and passing tractor trailers, it performed extremely well. I would recommend to anyone wanting a weight distributing hitch and sway control in one unit. 350658

FAST SHIPPING. Heavier than I thought. Well built. Does just what it said it would do. My 20ft' trailer with Tractor / front end loader / & bush hog ( about 8500lbs total weight) pulls better now. Trailer not bucking anymore going down the road and seems to handle better going around curves. Easy to install and setup. No problems here. Would buy from them again. 159252

Product works very well distributing weight and containing sway. Built very heavy duty. Powder coating chips off easily. Especially on edges of brackets. No instructions in box. I downloaded from manufacturers web site. Box that it was shipped in not strong enough for this much weight. Broke open in several spots. Thankfully nothing missing. 241150

I got this hitch to tow my 27FB Airstream. It was easy to install and the ride quality is great. I would recommend this setup for anyone towing a trailer with a heavier tongue weight looking for sway prevention. Debora at eTrailer was great to work with and let me know what was in stock and and when I should get my hitch. Thank you. 180126

Way too heavy for me to install. My son installed it. Once he figured out how to avoid being hurt when releasing chain, he was much happier with it. Drove all day in high winds and trailer swayed a little but it would have been MUCH worse without this WDH! I would not have driven that day without this product. 365698

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

I just received my sway pro today and put it together and got it installed on my Airstream. Looks good and well made. Will hit the road next week and will log about 2000 miles over 2 weeks. Have high hopes for the hitch and hope it performs as advertised. I am sure it will. 368902
