Weight Distributing Hitch

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.

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Is Curt 1,000 Pound Weight Distribution System Rated too High for 6,250 Pound Boat Trailer
  • Curt weight distribution system # C17322 is rated for 800 to 1,000 pounds tongue weight so it would be overkill for your trailer unless you also have weight behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle that increases the tongue weight to at least 800 pounds. There is a similar Curt system, # C17330, rated for 500 to 600 pounds tongue weight and another, # C17331, rated for 600 to 800 pounds. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the...

  • Short Arm Curt Weight Distribution System Recommendation for V-Nose Trailer
  • You'd need to go with a Short Arm Curt weight distribution system like the part # C17330 which has a 600 lb tongue weight max, the # C17331 for if you need an 800 lb max TW rating, or # C17332 for if you need a 1,000 lb tongue weight max system. The bar of this kit are only 28-3/8 inches long which would work well with your frame clearance that has the V-nose at around the 32 inch mark.

  • Weight Distribution And Sway Control Recommendations For 2014 Toyota Tacoma Towing A Trailer
  • In order to use weight distribution and sway control on your trailer, we will have to come up with a couple of things. To make the system perform properly, you will want to mount a weight distribution system with shorter arms due to the lower frame on the trailer. A typical WD system requires the chain holder brackets to be mounted 30 inches from the trailer ball. On your trailer, that is an issue. I recommend the Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution System with Shank, part # C17330. This...

  • Are Shorter Spring Bars Available for the Reese SC Weight Distribution Systems
  • We do carry weight distribution systems with shorter spring bars, however, all of the spring bars for the Reese SC weight distribution systems are the same size. Unfortunately, they do not make shorter spring bars for this system. Instead, I recommend looking at the Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution Systems. These systems are available with tongue weight capacities of 600 lbs, # C17330, 800 lbs, # C17331, and 1,000 lbs, # C17332, and they each have a maximum towing capacity of 10,000...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation For 2007 Toyota RAV4 Towing A Trailer
  • When you are towing your trailer with your 2007 Toyota RAV4, there are a few things to consider. You stated that the tongue weight is 345 lbs. Make sure you measure you trailer tongue weight when it is fully loaded with supplies, water, propane, equipment just as when you are towing, including anything that would be stored behind the rear axle of your RAV4. Since your trailer is more than 50 percent of your vehicle weight, weight distribution is recommended. I have included a helpful article...

  • Determining Correct Weight Distribution System for 2,500 Pound Boat Trailer
  • Anytime a trailer's weight is more than 50 percent of the tow vehicle's weight, a weight distribution system will likely provided some benefits. Based on my research, it looks like your 2018 GMC Acadia has a curb weight of around 4,000 pounds. Since your loaded trailer weight of 2,500 pounds is more than half of this, a weight distribution system might be a good idea. If you are still unsure, there is no issue with simply taking your loaded boat trailer out for a couple of rides with...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution And Brake Controller For 2014 Chrysler Town And Country

You can check your owner's manual or with your dealership to see what the towing capacity is for your Town & Country. You should never exceed the towing capacity listed by the manufacturer.

  • Weight Distribution for a 2011 Toyota Sienna and Jayco 154bh Trailer
  • First, make sure that you can use weight distribution with your Toyota Sienna by consulting the owners manual. Also, you will need to determine the maximum tongue weight capacity of the van. If the van maximum tongue weight capacity is 500 pounds then there is no reason to go with a 600 pound system. 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...

  • Will Curt Weight Distribution Hitch # C17330 Fit a 2012 Casita 17 Travel Trailer
  • The key to choosing the best weight distribution system is to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the vehicle when loaded and ready to tow and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Please consult the owners manual of your Pilot. We have found that on many Honda vehicles, Honda does not allow the use of weight distribution. The Curt system, # C17330, is rated for up 600 pounds tongue...

  • Recommended Hitch Ball and Sway Control Bar For Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution System
  • The Curt Short-Arm Weight Distribution System with Shank - Trunnion Bar - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # C17330 only requires a hitch ball. For a 2-5/16 inch ball, I recommend # 19286. For a 2 inch ball, I recommend # A-90. I recommend adding the Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems # 17200 for sway control assistance. This will bolt right on and give you assistance on trailers up to 26 feet long. I've attached an article to assist.
