Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Grease zerks in the head make for easy maintenance
  • Basic, bar-style friction sway control will help push your trailer back in line when it sways
  • Everything's included, even a pre-torqued hitch ball

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Chains don't provide much tension or stability, so sway is still bound to occur
  • Round bars don't provide as much ground clearance as trunnion, so you won't want this if you tow with a van or low-riding car
  • Can't reverse, use in inclement weather, or pair with surge brakes because of the friction sway control
Keep your trailer in line with this system that uses a telescoping bar with friction pads to correct trailer sway. Built-in grease zerks in the head provide simple maintenance. Includes an adjustable shank and pre-torqued 2-5/16" hitch ball. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Curt. Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 10K GTW, 1K TW part number C17062 can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 800-298-8924 for expert service.

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 - WD With Sway Control - 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.

Well made and heavy duty. The Curt MV Weight Distribution System is complete with nothing else to buy. Great price, fast shipping. Shipping package wasn't strong enough to support the heavy weight. Although the carton was in bad shape when it arrived there was no damage. 603557

Great product. I would never tow my 26’ box trailer without it. Equalizer Hitch is the only way to go and the Curt unit is great.

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

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.

Going on a year, and this hitch is great and a good value. The problem I had with the hitch I'd had previously was that the arms were too heavy for me to manage. I think this hitch works better for my implementation (I tow 30 feet with a Chevy Tahoe) than the old one, plus I can handle the entire thing myself. I feel in control even in high wind. Also- great service from e-trailer. A few weeks ago, one of the arms got stuck and customer service was able to help me solve the problem. 736363

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for Trailer with 755 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 a loaded tongue weight of 755...

  • Can Curt MV Weight Distribution System Be Ordered with 2 inch Hitch Ball
    We have a version of the Curt MV WD system part # C17062 that you referenced which doesn't come with a ball which then allows you to add the size needed to your order. For that you'd want the # C17052 and the Curt ball # 40038 which is a 2 inch hitch ball that also has the correct shank dimensions to fit this system. Then to add on the sway control unit you'd also want the part # 17200.

The bars feature the same diameter and are interchangeable on your system. No additional hardware will be needed when making this conversion. This is a perfect solution if you switch to a lighter trailer so that the system won't be over-rated, which can cause a pretty rough ride that...

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.

Otherwise you may have to go with chain hangers that bolt to the side of the trailer frame like part # RP58305. These don't require any clearance above the trailer frame for install so they should work well.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

    Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17062 has a shipping weight of 101 pounds but will weigh slightly less without the packaging.
