Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.

Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.

To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.

Unique Features of Blue Ox SwayPro

Blue Ox SwayPro Spring Bars

Unlike other weight distribution systems, the SwayPro has automatically locking brackets throughout. Both spring bars insert, slotted side up, into the head assembly and then lock securely in place. Removal is just as easy - simply lift the locking pins on the trunnions and slide the bars out. Blue Ox spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.

Blue Ox SwayPro Rotating Latch Brackets

Other systems have lift brackets that require you to apply a good amount of leverage to get them to snap up, which can be difficult and frustrating. With the SwayPro, all you have to do is insert the lift chain into the bracket slot and rotate the bracket with the included wrench until the lock pin engages.

Another feature of the SwayPro is the easy-to-use head. The required pitch is already built into the head, so the only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper height. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed, which means no hard-to-access washers or difficult-to-use thumbscrew.

Built-In Tension Stops Sway

Blue Ox SwayPro System with Built-In Sway Control Hooked Up

The SwayPro offers four points of built-in sway control. Within the head assembly, the trunnions are designed to hold the spring bars securely in position, placing just enough tension on them to cause them to constantly force your trailer in line. At the other end of this weight distribution system, the rotating brackets ensure that the lift chains are pulled as taut as possible. In addition, the basic design of the brackets keeps much of the length of the lift chains wrapped up inside of the brackets. Typically, only a couple of links hang down from each bracket. So each chain is held more stable than in traditional weight distribution systems, where more than twice as many links are exposed. This tight, stable design limits the movement of the spring bars so that they can exert more force on your trailer to effectively keep it from shifting side to side. Furthermore, unlike many friction-style sway controls, the SwayPro allows you to back up your trailer without having to remove or disengage the system.

Video Transcript for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System with Sway Control in a clamp-on design. For demo purposes as well as the quick installation, we're going to be using part number BXW1000. This SwayPro weight distribution system that we're using today is rated for 10,000 pounds maximum gross trailer weight with a maximum 1,000-pound tongue weight. Now we're going to go ahead and take our vehicle and the trailer for a test drive with the original set up. There's no weight distribution or no sway protection or prevention on our set up as it stands. Go ahead and show you how much movement as well as how uneasy the feel the tow vehicle has.

There's a lot of sway or side-to-side motion with the weight of the trailer. Now let's go ahead and begin how we would install our new Blue Ox SwayPro system. We've gone ahead and made sure that our trailer and our tow vehicle are parked in a straight line. We've gone ahead and disconnected the trailer from the tow vehicle. Now that we have everything disconnected, we can go ahead and scoot our tow vehicle forward a little bit. Now that we have the trailer unhitched from the tow vehicle, we can go ahead and level the trailer up itself.

You can see we have our trailer level. With our trailer level, we can turn our attention over to our tow vehicle. We need to remove the existing ball mount. Next, we're going to need to go ahead and measure the coupler here on our trailer and when we measure up, the top here we got 21 inches with the trailer level. There's one additional we need to go over here on the head of the SwayPro. You'll notice there's two little grease fittings here.

You will need to grease these periodically so that your SwayPro gives you long life and everything stays lubricated like it should. Next, were going to go over here and here's our shank that goes into the receiver. You'll notice that it has seven holes on it because it can go either this way or this way. For this particular vehicle, we're going to put it going up. It does have a 0 to 5 inch adjustability built into it so depending on your particular tow vehicle and trailer, it is adjustable.We'll go ahead and put our receiver shank into the receiver.

Put our 5/8 pin and clip in to secure it. Next, we're going to need to put the hitch head under the shank that's in the receiver. Now, we need to get a measurement of the top of the ball which you will need to supply separately. It does not come with the Blue Ox SwayPro system. You need the top of the ball measurement to be one to two inches higher than your coupler height. For our instance today, were at 21 inches on the trailer coupler height so we need to be 22 to 23 inches to the top of the ball. We're just going to temporarily set the ball in the hitch head for now so we can get our adjustment. Go ahead and slide the head onto the receiver. We'll take a couple of the 3/4 inch bolts. Just go through the holes to hold it in place for now. Now that we just have it temporarily set up, we can go ahead and take another measurement and from the ground to the top of the ball here, we are at 23 inches, so we're within the 1 to 2-inch height difference so this looks like thats a good location to secure the head to the receiver shank. While we may have been able to get our height needed with the receiver shank here flipped over to help eliminate any possibility of dragging or hitting something with this part hanging down, we went ahead and flipped it over. As you can see where there's still plenty of clearance. You don't have anything dragging here. It'll all depend on your particular application whether this is facing up or facing down. Now the ball we're using today is an inch and a quarter diameter shank so it fits in the head properly. If your ball only has a 1 inch shank, they do supply a coupler tha'tll go over it like that and drop into place taking up the excess room in the head of the receiver here. The hitch ball the we're using today is a 2-5/16 diameter with a 12,000-pound maximum gross trailer weight rating and its part number 19286. Here's the Loctite that we'll need to add to each of the threads here before we install the 3/4 inch lock nut and 3/4 inch hex nut for each. The red Loctite that we'll be using today is Loctite Thread Locker 262, part number LT37420. Next, we can go ahead, tighten down the hardware here. With the hardware tightened down, we'll go ahead and torque it down to the manufacturers specification. Next, you're going to need to secure the ball to the hitch head. To make things a little bit easier, I'm going to go ahead and flip over our whole set up here in the receiver. It makes things a little bit easier. If you turn it sideways like that, it'll make things a little bit easier to torque down the nut that secures the hitch ball. We'll need to install the lock washer that comes with the ball as well as the nut. We'll go ahead and tighten and torque down the ball to the manufacturers specification. Now that we have the hitch ball torque down, again make sure that you follow the manufacturers instructions for mounting the hitch ball to the head of the receiver.We'll go ahead and turn the whole thing back to the upright position. Line up the hitch pin hole. Put our 5/8 pin back in place as well as the clip. Go ahead and take another quick measurement to make sure we're still where we were before, right at 23 inches still. Our coupler height is at 21 so we should be good. Now, we're ready to go ahead and hook back up to our trailer. We'll go ahead and raise the trailer back up so we can back our tow vehicle underneath the coupler and we can hitch things up. We can go ahead and lower our trailer down under the ball. Next, we're going to need to measure back 29 inches from the center of our coupler along our frame here on our trailer. Go ahead and put a mark here on our trailer. Go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. Here's what our rotating latches look like. They come with this larger bolt but depending on your frame of your trailer, you may need to replace the bolt with this shorter one. It will all depend on how wide your trailer is or if this bolt here is too long and has an obstruction. You do get two of these with the kit as well if you need to replace them. In our particular application, this particular short bolt is too short to work properly so we'll be using the longer bolt that's already installed. You'll notice that it also a jam nut here once everything is installed. We'll go ahead and line up the bolts here with our mark we made. Go ahead and get that centered up.Then go ahead and just hand-tighten down the bolt in the back for now. Go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. Setting up the Blue Ox system itself is identical except for the bars are different and you can tell by the different dots underneath which size kit you have. The way you can tell the difference, just by looking at them it's kind of hard to do that but when you look right here, there's these little dimples or dots. Three dots means that its a 1,000-pound spring bar. Just for comparison, we have one here. It looks identical to it but this one here only has one dot on it. That means its a 550-pound bar. They range anywhere from no dots which is a 350-pound bar all the way up to five dots which is a 2,000-pound bar. After we have our spring bar in, kind of hold up where it would be, i'ts going to be right in the middle.We can go ahead and tighten and torque down the nut to the manufacturers specification. Once that's done, we can go ahead and take the jam nut. Tighten that down as well. Go ahead and tighten down our nut here. Go ahead and torque it down then. Then go ahead and tighten down the jam nut. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process over on the other side. Let's go over a little more detail how the bar slides in to the head of the hitch. Theres a hole drilled into it right here. Tha'ts what lines up with this little release mechanism right here. You want to make sure that that's always facing up. You'll slide it into place until that drops back down in securing the bar in position. Now let's go ahead and show you how to connect one of the bars in with the latch mechanism. We've gone ahead with the trailer coupler to the ball. We've used the trailer jack to raise up the front end of the trailer as well as help hold up the weight on the back end of the tow vehicle. We've gone up pretty high as you can see. That'll make connecting our bar here a lot easier. A good starting point is to have about three lengths visible on the bottom of this latch mechanism here once it's flipped back into position. Let's go ahead and go over how these work. You pull the handle here and that releases them. Allows them to pivot down and then as you turn it using the handle, locks it back into place. We'll go ahead and show you how one works. Go ahead and take the chain. There's a little groove built into the mechanism here, drops in like that. The chain into position and by having the trailer jacked up like this, it makes it much easier to turn this mechanism right here into position. Take the bar. Turn it counterclockwise until you hear it snap or lock into position. You notice that there's a lot of tension on the bar and it also does have some bow to it or flex to it. That is what it's supposed to do, that is normal. That's what helps with the weight distribution as well as stopping any sway to the trailer. We'll go ahead and repeat that same process over on the other side. With both of the bars connected, we can go ahead and lower the trailer down.We've gone and taken the weight off the jack so all the weight is on the vehicle now. Let's go back over here to our level on the side of trailer. If you'll see here, if you remember from the beginning, we started at four and four with the trailer level not hooked to the tow vehicle at all and now that we are hooked to the tow vehicle, we are level on the trailer. We're pretty well right where we want to be set on the height of the hitch head as well as the tension on the bars. Now we'll go ahead and take it out for another test drive and show you what it looks like with the new Blue Ox SwayPro hooked up to our trailer. Now that we have our new Blue Ox SwayPro system installed, you can see how much better the vehicle handles pulling this trailer. Theres a lot less movement in the vehicle and you have a lot more secure or stable feeling in your tow vehicle as you're going down the road. You don't have any sway or movement of the trailer. Let's go ahead and get a baseline of what our vehicle is without the trailer connected to it at all. From the ground to the bottom of the wheel well, we're about 36-1/4 inches. Come up to the front here and were about 35-1/8 to 35-1/4 inches from the ground to the bottom of the wheel well. Now let's go ahead and take some measurements now that we have our SwayPro set up on the vehicle. From the ground to the bottom of the wheel well, we have 35 inches here at rear. We move up to the front, it appears at the front we have about 35-1/8. We're pretty even with the Blue Ox SwayPro set up on our vehicle and trailer and that'll do it for our quick look as well as installation of the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System with sway control and the clamp-on style.

First blue ox hitch purchase, I'm impressed with build quality, but haven't been able to put it to use yet. I'm thrilled with etrailer.com, super fast shipping and great pricing! 760385

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

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.

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

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. Any future towing needs will definitely be through etrailer. 690590

Was getting yanked around a lot in my F350 towing my 28 ft toy hauler. I purchased the blue ox sway bars and what a difference. The truck no longer squats about 3 inches. It is now level and pulls the trailer very nicely without the previous jerking and jerking. It's a great product that goes on easily and I would highly recommend it. 688734

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

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 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

Ask the Experts about this Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Is Using the Blue Ox SwayPro BXW2000 On the 7th or 8th Link Accecptable
    I spoke with Blue Ox and they stated that if the 7th link is the one that works best for you on the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW2000 then that is completely fine and you can use this without issue. That said, if the 7th link puts the spring bars too close to the ground then that is when you would switch to the 1,500 lb spring bars, part # BXW4008. I would not be able to trade these out for the 2,000 lb spring bars you have now unfortunately.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Towing a Grand Design Momentum 28G Toy Hauler
    Nice towing rig! When choosing a weight distribution (WD) system you really want to choose one that has a tongue weight that your total tongue weight (TTW) falls in the middle of. You can find your TTW by adding the loaded weight of your trailer with any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2018 GMC Sierra 2500. Since a properly loaded trailer should have a TW that is within 10-15% of the weight of the loaded trailer this means that your trailer TW alone should be 1,200 lbs - 1,800 lbs...

  • Recommended WD System for a 17,000 lb GVWR Trailer Towed by a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    When choosing a Weight Distribution (WD) system you will want to find one with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer. Since...

  • Lower Rated Spring Bar Recommendation for Blue Ox Weight Distribution System
    If your loaded tongue weight is 1,500 lbs you are at the very bottom of the tongue weight range for the Blue Ox weight distribution system part # BXW2000 which has a range of 1,500 to 2,000 lbs. This will give you a harsh ride quality like you have. The best option would be to go with a lower rated bar. The Sway Pro systems from the highest to the lowest rated all use the same weight distribution head. To change the weight rating of the system, you'd simply swap out the spring bars....

  • Weight Distribution Solution for Trailer that has 1,800 lb Tongue Weight
    1,800 lbs of tongue weight is quite a bit which is why the only solutions require the use of the heavier duty 2-1/2 inch hitches. The Blue Ox WD system part # BXW2000 that you referenced is going to be your best solution but it does require a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch installed. If you can get back to me with the year/make/model of your truck I can look up what would be the best options for that as well. I attached a review video for this kit for more info for you to check out as well.

  • Can 20,000-lb Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System Be Ordered With 2-Inch Shank
    The Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System, part # BXW2000 we carry is designed for a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch. We do not offer it with a 2-inch option, because using a 2-inch shank would lower the weight capacity of the system. The highest rated Blue Ox SwayPro system with a 2-inch shank we offer is part # BXW1500. This system is rated for 15,000-lb gross towing weight and 1,500-lb maximum tongue weight.

  • Which Blue Ox SwayPro Should Be Used for a Trailer With a Tongue Weight of 1,620 lbs
    When deciding what Weight Distribution (WD) to pick from, you will want to first figure out the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your setup. This includes the Tongue Weight (TW) of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer plus the weight of any cargo that will be behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. After you add those figures together, you will want to choose a WD that has a weight range where your TTW falls in the the middle of. If your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer has a...

  • Is Using an Overrated Weight Distribution System Okay
    Using a Weight Distribution (WD) system that is rated too high or too low is never a good thing. Too high and your ride will be very stiff but too low and you won't see any benefit from it. Luckily we have a solution for you that does not require an adapter sleeve. Almost all of the WD shanks that we have are compatible with other WD systems because the 2" width and 1-1/4" on center mounting hole dimensions are the same for the WD heads. I recommend the Equal-i-zer shank # EQ90-02-4900...

  • What Is The Difference Between Weight Distribution And Underslung Weight Distribution Systems?
    Great Question. Underslung couplers on trailers look like the trailer frame is sitting on top of the coupler. For an example of what one looks like check out the etrailer.com A-Frame Coupler Underslung # CA-5335-B. I attached a picture of one for you to check out as well. I reached out to Blue Ox to get the specific differences and there is only one difference. In the design of the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Bolt On - Underslung, # BXW2004, they accounted...

  • Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Tongue Weight 1,800 lbs
    That's quite a bit of tongue weight but we do have a weight distribution system that is rated for that. The Blue Ox Swaypro part # BXW2000 is rated for up to 2,000 lbs tongue weight and would be a great option as long as you stay under 2,000 lbs. For a ball you would want the part # 63840.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 Trailer 1,800 lb Tongue Weight
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. For the weight of your trailer...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For Dump Trailer Weighing 5000 To 15000 Lbs
    If your Class V trailer hitch on your Dodge truck has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening I recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution, part # BXW2000. This system has a 20,000-lb towing capacity and is designed for tongue weight between 1,500 and 2,000 lbs. Since the weight you are hauling varies by so much, you may want to disengage the trunnion bars when the trailer is empty. You can leave them engaged but the ride would be pretty stiff. You will need a hitch ball with a 1-1/4...

  • What Hitch Ball Does Blue Ox Weight Distribution System Use?
    For the weight distribution hitches from Blue Ox that have a gross towing weight of 20,000 lbs, # BXW2000 and # BXW2003 you only need a hitch ball with either a 1" or 1-1/4" diameter shank. For a 2" hitch ball you can use # 63845 and for a 2-5/16" hitch ball you can use # 63847. To put it on the system, you only need to slide the ball into the hitch head and tighten it. If you go to 5:45 of the linked video review you can see exactly how to install the hitch ball.

    As long as your tongue weight does not exceed 2,000 lbs the Blue Ox SwayPro part # BXW2001 would be perfect for you as it has a 2,000 lb tongue weight rating and uses frame brackets that clamp to the the trailer frame. For a hitch ball you would want the part # 63840.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control For Triple Axle Trailer With 18,000-Lb GTW
    When choosing a weight distribution system the most important thing you want to know is what the gross tongue weight is. Gross Tongue Weight is the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully-loaded and ready to tow added to the weight of any cargo placed behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. I have attached links to a couple helpful articles that explains weight distribution and how to determine tongue weight you can check out. Based on your gross trailer weight of 18,000-lbs...

  • Is 1,800 lbs of Tongue Weight Too Much for a GVWR of 12,000 lbs
    When a trailer is loaded properly it will have a tongue weight (TW) that is 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer. Since 1,800 lbs is exactly 15% of 12,000 lbs you haven't overloaded the TW on your trailer. The best percentage of TW for a trailer is 13% which would be 1,560 lbs for your application. If you are able to move some cargo around you can use a TW scale like part # 5780 to figure out how you need to load the trailer to achieve 13% TW. A 1 ton pickup should be able to...

    I can certainly help you get your family to Alaska safely as we do have some options that will be helpful, but it will depend on a few different factors. There is actually an anti-sway weight distribution system that would work, the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW2000, though this would require your 2017 Ford F-250 have a 2-1/2" hitch like the Curt # C15802, and you would also need to switch the brackets from the SwayPro's clamp on to the Blue Ox Signature...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Airstream With 7,600 lb GVWR
    Greetings. In regards to a weight distribution system, in order to choose the right one you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go Airstream plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 1998 Dodge Ram. The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR (7,600 lbs) but you'll want to verify it by using a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank Compatible with Blue Ox Sway Pro System
    Yes, the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs # AMAC1 will work with the 2,000 lb tongue weight of the Blue Ox SwayPro # BXW2000 but it will limit the towing capacity to 10,000 lbs. Your only other option is to replace your trailer hitch receiver. If you go this route, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class V - 2-1/2" # DT45508 which is a custom fit for your 1999 Ford Super Duty Truck

  • Recommendations for Weight Distribution on a Boat Trailer with Surge Brakes
    What a cool looking boat!! I have a solution for you, but the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control is not recommended for use with surge brakes. Instead, for a similar rated system that would be compatible you would want the Reese SC Weight Distribution system part # RP66560. This system has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 1,200 lbs. It utilizes fully sliding trunnion bars which can move forward when you need the brakes applied through the surge coupler then return...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2018 Ford F-150 with Bobcat on Trailer
    There are some 2018 Ford F150 models that are rated to tow the capacity you stated as long as they have the 20 inch wheels. It sounds like you have done your homework. I looked up your i700 bobcat and found the operating weight at 8,893 lbs and when you add that to your 3,460 lb trailer you will be just over its capacity at 12,353 lbs. If that research is correct, you will need a slightly larger capacity trailer (GVWR) if I'm reading your question correctly. If your trailer is...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendations for a 30 Foot Diamond Cargo Trailer with 8 Tall Frame
    I do have a great solution for you but the Blue Ox SwayPro system # BXW2000 will not work with frames taller than 6 inches because the spring bars would be up to high and make contact with the trailer frame. If you can use a system that is rated up to 1,200 pounds tongue weight you can use Husky Center Line system # HT32218 which does fit up to 8 inch tall trailer frames. Another option is to use a chain hanging system such as Reese Strait-Line system # RP66075 rated for 1,000 to...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Race Trailer with Loaded Weight 13,000 to 14,000 lbs
    For your race trailer with weight between 13,000 and 14,000 lbs, the total tongue weight is normally between 10 and 15 percent of that when fully loaded and including cargo behind the rear axle of your truck. My recommendation is the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW2000 which is rated for tongue weights between 1,500 and 2,000 lbs. Then you will use hitch ball # 63847 to work with your trailer coupler. This system has brackets that are utilized for sway control....

  • Should Springs Bars of Blue Ox Weight Distribution System BXW2000 Be Flexed When installed
    The tongue weight range for the Blue Ox weight distribution system part # BXW2000 is 1,500 to 2,000 lbs. If your tongue weight falls in that range this system will work great. The bars are designed to have a bit of bend in them when they are set up properly. This indicates that they are working to apply some of the trailer tongue weight up to the front axle of the tow vehicle. Seeing them flex is not an issue at all.

  • Best Weight Distribution System for I-Beam Trailers with GTW up to 20,000 Lbs
    In order to choose the correct weight distribution system, you will need to find the total tongue weight (TTW) of your towing setup by adding the tongue weight (TW) of both your loaded ready to tow trailer and any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The average TW rating of a trailer is typically 10-15% of the gross trailer weight (GTW). An easy way to find this would involve using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780. When...

  • Recommended Air Suspension Kit for 13,000 lb Tandem Axle Food Trailer
    To assist with the stability of the trailer, an air suspension system will give you the support you are seeking for off center loads as well as offering a smoother ride and support for off center loads. For this system, I recommend the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391. This system also raises your trailer about 2 inches to give you additional clearance. If you want suspension support but don't want the air system, you may...

The Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System part # C17501 is designed to be used in applications in which the total tongue weight (TTW) of the truck/trailer is between 1,000 lbs - 1,500 lbs. TTW is calculated by adding the loaded ready to tow tongue (TW) weight of the trailer by any cargo stored...
