Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more 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.


Friction Sway Control

The included friction-style sway control unit reduces trailer sway caused by winds, passing traffic, curving roads, or sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install the unit, simply mount the ball-and-plate assembly to your trailer's frame with the included self-tapping screws, and attach the sway control ball to the head of your weight distribution hitch. Then attach the bar to both of the balls and secure it in place with the included clips.


Forged Steel Spring Bars

The round spring bars are made from forged steel, giving them a distinct advantage over typical cast steel bars. Forging is a process where thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is more resilient to impacts and is stronger in terms of shear strength. Simply put, these spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.


Built-In Grease Zerks

Built-in grease zerk on the Curt weight distribution system head assembly

The system's head features 2 built-in grease zerks so that you can easily lubricate the spring bars without having to remove them from the head assembly. The grease zerks are located on each of the shafts that encase the spring bars. Simply use a grease gun (sold separately) to inject grease into each of the zerks.

Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution C17062 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C17062. This is the Curt weight distribution system with friction sway control. It's going to evenly distribute weight over the axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer, offering improved stability and control. Ultimately, it's going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. Your friction sway control system is included. That's going to reduce sway caused by winds, passing traffic, curving roads, or sudden maneuvers.

It's going to feature the adjustable tension. That's this bolt right here. That's going to let you set the perfect amount of control and resistance. We're going to have the built-in lever to disengage or engage the system. It's going to be held on there with a socket connecting to this ball and this socket connecting to this ball. It's going to be held in place with 2 large clips, so it allows for easier removal.

All you have to do is un-clip the bar unit from each attachment ball and then you can remove this piece. It is recommended that you remove the sway control unit before backing up or reversing and before towing in slippery conditions, such as on wet, icy, gravel, or snow-covered roads. It's easy to remove; that way, you can do that very quickly and efficiently. It's going to come with all the necessary hardware to get that unit installed. That's the sway control unit, now onto the weight distribution system. That's going to feature round spring bars.

These are going to be constructed of solid forged steel for strength and durability. You can adjust the spring bar tension by switching the links in the lift chains to fine tune the system. You can also get the desired tilt here at the head assembly, using a traditional spacer rivet and washer design. Spacer rivet installs in the hole located right behind the hitch ball, under the ball platform. Then you simply just add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down; very simple system to use. We're also going to have grease zerks right here on the head assembly.

That's going to allow for easy maintenance, always allows us to attach a grease gun and lubricate the parts that really need it. The steel is going to be powder coated, so it's going to do a good job at resisting rust and corrosion. It's also going to come with your snap-up lever. This going to ease hooking up by reducing lifting required by the trailer jack. Simply attach this to the lift brackets; it just gives you some of that extra leverage that we need for hooking up and disconnecting. Here on the head assembly, it's going to feature the 2-5/16" hitch ball that's going to come pre-installed and pre-torqued. The tongue weight for this unit is going to be 800-1,000 pounds. Maximum gross towing weight is 10,000 pounds. It is designed for 2"x2" trailer hitch receivers rated for use with weight distribution systems. We're going to have the adjustable shank already have the head assembly mounted on there, but the adjustable shank offers numerous mounting holes. That way, you can adjust the rise and drop or the height of the head assembly to fit you particular application. You can use the adjustable shank in the rise position, which is the position I have it in now. With the head assembly in the highest setting, that's going to give us a rise of 5-3/4" from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of the ball platform. With the shank in the drop position, it would give us a maximum drop with the head assembly at the lowest setting of 1-3/4", measuring again from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of the ball platform. The lift brackets are going to take up about 5" along the trailer frame and then you need to make sure that your trailer frame width will fit inside the bracket, and we're looking at an opening size of, measured here at the top, pretty close to 3". It's going to come with your 5/8" pin and clip to get the shank secured inside of your hitch. All the hardware is provided, so you get the head assembly attached to the shank to get your sway control system mounted and it's also going to come with detailed instructions. Those are going to help walk you through that installation process step-by-step. Again, a weight distribution system is really going to help distribute evenly the weight over the axles of the tow vehicle and trailer, which is going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. Then again, this unit does include the Curt sway control system. Also keep in mind a special note is that this is not for use on trailers with surge brakes. That's going to do it for today's look at part number C17062.

The hitch kit arrived in record time and didn't cost me a thing extra! The chains were already attached which cut down on assembly time. Although the instructions are a little confusing when it comes to measurements and where to measure and when, but they seem to be complete. The only thing negative I can say is be prepared to pull the hitch head off the shank a couple times to adjust the number of washers (as it does say that in the instructions). I assembled mine per instructions (except I tightened the head bolts too soon) figuring with the ball tilted back just a little, it would hook right up. Turns out, I cant even attach the last link to the clevis as it is too far back. Sooooo tomorrow I will take the head apart and remove a couple washers on the rivet and try it again. Overall, I think it will do a fine job in distributing the weight through out the truck vs all in the rear. The friction bar was easy to install too. Our camper already had a sway control at one point, so all the holes were there. We did purchase an additional Curt friction bar for the drivers side and installed it too. We haven't towed the camper yet with this set up (as stated above, its not quite assembled correctly yet) but am planning on the maiden voyage this weekend. Thanks ETRAILER for another sweet deal on quality products! 268114


Comments

Still working Great! The only negative thing I have seen is there are some marks where the friction bars have contacted the hitch head, so either the ball mounts on the trailer are too low, or the hitch head is tilted back too far to properly accommodate the friction bars correctly.

The angle of the hitch head may be a factor, but commonly we see damage to the anti-sway bars when they are not removed while backing-up. This system is not designed to be used while backing up your trailer.

This was my first time buying a weight distribution system, but I'm very pleased with this product. etrailer has by far the best price, and with free shipping on this product, it was a no-brainer. The system is a heavy steel (100lbs) that seems of good quality that should last many years. Good directions for installation comes in the box, but I also viewed a YouTube video produced by etrailer which I found very helpful. I would like to thank etrailer for their fantastic customer service. I got an email notification that my package had arrived, but when I got home it wasn't there. I called etrailer and on the second ring a customer service employee picked up the phone. The employee contacted UPS for me and called me back within 10 minutes telling me UPS would contact me within the hour. 20 minutes later UPS contacted me who told me the driver had brought the package to the wrong house, but would bring it to my house. About 15 minutes later my package was delivered. I truly appreciate etrailer's customer service, and the fact I spoke to a real person. I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone. 450569

Your customer service is beyond excellent. When I called to place my order I was asked all of the pertinent questions and advised to go ahead and order the item to be sure one would be available for me later as we were not home to receive the shipment and they could hold shipping. When I called back to release the shipment it was a very simple and quick process and the item arrived in record time. Both individuals I spoke with were not only knowledgeable but very courteous and pleasant to deal with which has become a rare thing today. The item is more than we expected and is extremely well built and very sturdy and should last a lifetime. We will definitely come back to Etrailer for future purchases and will recommend to all our family and friends. Thanks so much for making this a pleasant and easy transaction. 235261

Ordered Curt 1K/10K weight distribution hitch and a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller, on Friday 11th at 4:00 pm and received them wed 16th at 3:30 pm. Installed brake control same day in about 20 min. installed hitch next day, took about 1 hr to put it together and hook to brand new 25 ft. travel trailer. Brake control was easy to set for right braking power. Left sales yard and drove 140 miles with trailer in tow. Both items work flawlessly without any problems. Sale agent, Lisa D, was very helpful with my order and getting it shipped to me promptly so I could meet A 10:00 pm pick-up appointment Thursday the 17. Great job LISA, Thanks, B Lewis 317621

First and foremost the customer service I received from Ellen was super. She was not only quick with calling back but very informative and knowledgable. She was able to get me the exact weight distribution hitch that allowed the correct tongue rating which I overlooked. A Huuuge thanks Ellen!! Secondly, I place my order Tuesday night, I received shipping update that my items shipped the very next morning on Wednesday and received on my door step on Friday. Lastly, please note that phone orders get shipped first over online orders! I will definitely use them again as well as refer folks to use strainer! Thanks etrailer!! 216118

I saw this item on e-trailer. I wanted to purchase it so I called the day after Thanksgiving to purchase it. They were closed until the following Monday. I called on Monday and was told the price was now 220.68. On Friday the price had been 200.16. They would not give me the original price, even though they were closed when I called. I didn't think that was fair. I complained and they gave me 5% off. If they had given me 10% off it would have been the original price. The product was good and shipping was good. I was very satisfied except for the price hike. 456390

The weight distribution hitch with friction sway control is great. I received the hitch within the time frame told to me. The torsion bars are of high quality, in fact the entire system is heavy duty and more than I expected for the money. The only problem was that the system came with a 2 5/16 inch ball, but I only needed a 2 inch ball. I bought a 2 inch ball locally and was good to go. Thank you e-trailer! 225158

I've always had good luck with Curt products and this one was no different! I'm a seasoned traveler and this hitch was easy to setup and install. There are a couple of YouTube videos showing the process that will be very helpful to the novice. I will say, its much easier if you have the proper size sockets and/or wrenches when assembling the ball mount. Now, get that hitch on cuz its time to hit the road!! 297941

Received The C17062 last night. Unpacked it this morning and all items were packed nice and neat. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The weight distribution unit will go well with my new trailer (8.5'X20' enclosed car hauler)) that I have on order. Actually I had the same system on my past trailer and it work really well. I will definitely recommend etrailer to my drag racing friends. Thank You! 324864

Have used the load leveling one time and it made a world of difference, just installed anti sway and will be taking a 10hr trip to Canada this weekend so we will get the full use of the complete setup. Installation was actually extremely easy, only had to make minor adjustments and it came out perfect. I would recommend to any of my friends with a camper or even heavy trailer. 439425

The box the hitch came in was damaged to the point that someone had to put tape all around the box to hold it together. The product was damaged with quite a few small dents in it all over. The product was exactly what I needed and was a good price but was disappointed with the damage to the product and the box that it came in. 514355

Overall this is a great product; however I had issues installing the sway control. The lag screws that came with the sway sheared off at 10lb of torque. I spent about 4 hours drilling out two of them and decided to use bolts instead. I purchased bolts with a torque rating of 120lb and shear load of 1200lb each. 261594

The hitch seems solid and well built. I am to give it a try. Assembly went well. The box the hitch came in was another subject. Once it was delivered, and I saw the box, I had to check it our right away to make sure all the parts were there. The only issue I have is the chains could be a little longer. 267651

Everything is excellent. Product is just as expected. Be prepared for it to be on the heavy side. I think my ups driver is ok but looked like he was struggling real good getting it to my porch. I really like that it has the grease fittings. After initial set up it looks like it will be easy to use. 480183

Have only just received this item. Before purchasing I found this website and read previous reviews. A lot of positive feedback. I shopped around but did not find a better price.

Received the Product on time and in perfect shape. E Trailer is the go to place. I have always had good service with Curt products. The Hitch package was as described. For my money I don't believe you will find a better 1,000 / 10,000 lb. hitch, only more expensive. 542302

Sorry I don't have a picture now put the Curt Weight Distribution hitch with the sway control is a great hit with me. I've had others on a different trailer but no where near a good a this one, I couldn't be happier made the truck level and never swayed at all. 372838

  • The only thing I could find on a Gulf Stream Cavalier CVDH is dry it weighs 4,660 pounds and has a gross weight capacity of 6,200 pounds. If we go by the gross weight capacity of 6,200 pounds then the tongue weight of the trailer by itself would be 620 to 930 pounds. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight...

  • Can You Back Up With a Weight Distribution System Connected
  • With weight distribution backing up is possible with the system installed, but you will have to make sure you are backing up mainly in a straight line. If there is any chance you could end up with your trailer jackknifed you will want to remove the spring bars.

  • Comparing Curt MV Weight Distribution System # 17062 to Curt System 17022
  • The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar # C17062 and the 17022 you referenced is basically the difference between the old style and new style according to my contact at Curt. The newer style # C17062 has a built in grease zerk for easy maintenance where the older 17022 will require you to add grease to the round bar sleeve in the head with the bar removed and cleaning up the excess versus simply using a grease gun. I've attached a review video to assist.

  • Recommended Hitch and Weight Distribution for a 2012 Ford F-150 Towing a 2016 Dutchmen 6K Camper
  • I can help you figure out if the setup your friend is looking at will work well for the 2016 Dutchman Camper. You are correct about having the correct equipment to help prevent any contact with the truck and camper, even in an emergency situation. Let's start with the hitch, the Curt # C14002 is a great hitch for his truck if it didn't already come with one. Its weight capacity is the highest among the ones offered for his vehicle but its important to note that it will not increase...

  • Weight Distribution System Compatible With Lifted Truck
  • The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 10K GTW, 1K TW # C17062 is not available without the shank. For your raised truck, you can interchange companies for the shank head, however the companies may void your warranty. I recommend using the Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank 7" - 10 Hole Adjustment # C17123, for your lifted truck. This will give you a maximum drop of 5-5/8 inches. If you need a bigger drop than that, you will need to use # C17124.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 23 Foot Travel Trailer w/ 5400lb GVWR
  • In addition to all the items on the trailer that will increase its dry tongue weight, you'll also need to add the weight of anything you carry in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle. The right way to do this is to load up the trailer as you would typically have it, and take it to a truck scale or use the # 5780 Sherline Tongue Weight Scale. Ideally, the TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight distribution system...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 1989-1993 26 foot Dutchmen Camper
  • 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. Your loaded tongue weight would...

  • Length Of Spring Bars on The Curt and Pro Series Weight Distribution Systems
  • Most weight distribution spring bars are about the same length. Typically they are either 29 or 31 inches in length. The spring bars of the Curt # C17062 would be 30-5/8 inches, and the bars of the # PS49903 would be 31-1/4 inches.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Pulling 2016 Jayco x23b
  • This weight distribution hitch # C17062 is a great value and will work with your 2014 Dodge Durango. Just a heads up to be cognizant of your 2016 Jayco x23b's FULLY loaded trailer weight. I have attached an article on how to accurately measure tongue weight. This system can handle up to 1,000lbs in TW. The above system is rated for 800-1000lbs TW.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 27 Foot Travel Trailer on a 2015 Toyota Tundra Crew Max
  • I can help you get set up with all the right equipment for towing a travel trailer with your 2015 Toyota Tundra Crew Max. A weight distribution system is recommended if the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the trailer is more than 50 percent of the GVW of your vehicle. A weight distribution system will distribute some of the tongue weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle. This will help with sag and allow your setup to brake and handle better. When picking out a weight distribution...

  • How to Pick Out Weight Distribution System When Carrying Truck Bed Camper
  • Your best solution for determine the loaded tongue weight is going to be to contact the manufacturer of your camper and ask them how much weight of the camper is going to end up behind the rear axle. If the camper weighs 4,000 lbs in the be of your truck you could be looking at a wide range of tongue weight to consider. The tongue weight capacity of the SuperTruss Extension would not need to consider the tongue weight added by the camper, but when picking out a weight distribution system...

  • Comparing Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
  • Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. To choose...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution and Sway Control for 2014 Ram 1500 Towing 3754-lb Travel Trailer
  • The key to selecting the correct weight distribution and sway control system is knowing the trailer's fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight (TW) just as it will be when you head out. To this measured TW you need to add the weight of anything in the tow vehicle that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or loaded cooler.
