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.


Features of the Equal-i-zer

Head Tilt Adjustment

Controlling head tilt with traditional washer method

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage on your entire system, making it easier to install and hook up the spring bars. To adjust the tilt, simply slide washers onto the spacer rivet and insert the rivet into the head assembly. To increase the angle, add a washer. To reduce the angle, remove a washer. Most setups take four to six washers to achieve the proper height. Once you get the desired tilt, insert the shank bolts to secure the head to the shank and then tighten it in place.



Construction of Spring Arms

The Equal-i-zer spring bars are not made of traditional spring steel. Rather, they are constructed of a chromium-molybdenum alloy steel. Chromoly steel has a high tensile strength for extreme durability. It also features excellent dexterity, which allows it to give as required and then return softly back to its original form. This pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce while still ensuring that the weight of your rig is adequately distributed.


Fixed Sway Control Brackets

Installation of Sway-Control Brackets

The unique sway control brackets of the Equal-i-zer are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp onto your trailer frame and conveniently adjust to a position anywhere between 27 inches and 32 inches back from the coupler. These brackets provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar into place on the L-shaped brackets. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.


Equal-i-zer Hitch 4-Point Sway Control

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved through the rotational friction that is present in the weight distribution hitch itself. Within the system head, the downward pressure that is placed on the hitch ball by the trailer is combatted by the upward pressure exerted by the spring bars that are mounted in the sockets. This upward force is placed on the spring bars on either side of the system, creating the rotational friction that, essentially, forces your trailer in line. This type of friction is responsible for two points - one on either side of the trailer - of the 4-Point Sway Control. To ensure that enough tension is present, make certain that the socket bolts in the head assembly are torqued to at least 45 foot-pounds.


Points within the Equal-i-zer system where upward and downward forces interact to create rotational friction

The other two points of sway control are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Letting the spring bars hang freely minimizes the rotational friction described earlier. It also eliminates your system's ability to create the type of direct friction that has been shown to be so effective in limiting trailer sway.


This direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the Equal-i-zer system helps to stop sway once it has begun. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the Equal-i-zer uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway control system.

Video Transcript for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the equalizer weight distribution system with 4-point sway control, and weight distribution chain. With 6000 lbs gross trailer weight, and a 600 lbs tongue weight. Part number EQ37060ET. So you've decided you need a weight distribution system. The Equalizer weight distribution system uses steel on steel friction to help prevent and correct trailer sway. The sway control brackets ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Our spring bars flex appropriately over uneven terrain, for a more controlled and even ride without bounce. The system includes a head assembly.

It uses a traditional washer system to provide tilt in the head. The more tilt in the head, the more lift in the tongue weight. Because it uses the 4-point sway control, there are no chains. The spring bars are easily installed with the included lift handle. The whole thing is made out of a dipped steel construction, so it is going to be durable and resist rust and corrosion. As with all weight distribution systems, it helps your tow vehicle get back to a stock height with the added weight of a trailer.

Let's take a look at that now. I've gone ahead and removed the weight distribution and disconnected from the trailer. Let's go ahead and get a stock measurement of our tow vehicle. Here at the rear, we've got about 39-1/2" to the underside of the wheel well. At the front, I've got about 38-1/2". Now, you want to be sure and record these measurements, because these are the measurements we want to try and get back to when we engage our weight distribution system.

Now, I've gone ahead and hooked up my trailer to my tow vehicle without weight distribution. Now, let's take a look and see what the tow vehicle looks like. Here in the back, I'm squatting about an inch and here in the front, my vehicle is tilted upward about 3/4 of an inch. Weight distribution should correct that. Let's hook it up. Now, I've got my trailer hooked back up and my weight distribution engaged.

Let's go ahead and take another measurement on our tow vehicle. Here in the back, we're back to stock height and same with the front. Excellent. Not using a weight distribution system can cause issues with your traction, tire wear, and handling. Getting your vehicle back to stock with a weight distribution system can help prevent those problems. Now let's show you how it's installed. First to note about using a weight distribution system is you need to make sure your camper or trailer is fully loaded and ready to go. This ensures proper weight is being applied to your tow vehicle. The shank can be installed in either the rise or drop position. The head is adjustable along the shank. You just need to make sure that the top of the ball is level with the top of the coupler when your trailer is level. The kit includes eight washers to adjust the tilt of your head. You don't have to use all eight, you just need to make sure to use enough to get your vehicle back close to stock. Our spring bars fit inside the weight distribution head and are lifted on the L-bracket with the included tool. We can then place in our snap-L pin, to help keep the spring bar in place. This is where that steel on steel friction takes place, helping us with our sway control. Finally, our link plates are installed on our trailer's A-frame, with the L-brackets on the outside. You just want to make sure you avoid your battery box or your propane tanks. Those may have to be relocated. It needs to be positioned between 27" and 32" from the center of your coupler. If you've used all eight washers for your head tilt and your vehicle still isn't back to stock, you can adjust your L-brackets. That's going to complete our look, the equalizer 4-point weight control with shank. With a 6000lbs gross trailer weight and a 600lbs tongue weight, part number EQ37060ET.

Installed myself and spent a lot of time adjusting the torsion and test driving. Very pleased with the firmness and stability of the 4000 lb. trailer. There are periods when I hear some squeaking in back, but retightening all the hitch bolts seems to alleviate most of the noise. 643400

I purchased the EQ37060ET (6000 GTW-600 TW) last year and cannot say enough good things about it. It has performed flawlessly on my 2014 Toyoda Highlander, pulling our 21', 4000 lb Winnebago Mico Minnie. As the expression goes, "If I can hook it up, anyone can !" I've recommended to anyone who's in the market for a great weight distribution system. 334439

Etrailer is awesome! I called Monday evening and they answered my questions about the weight distribution hitches. I knew I wanted an Equalizer hitch but was unsure on the model. Etrailer recommended the 600/6000 model so I ordered it over the phone. They said it would take five days to ship to CA, but it was delivered today, on Thursday, and only took three days! Etrailer rocks!!! 525151

I can't speak on the hitch itself because I was never able to use it, but I hear great things. However, I want to save someone else the hassle here, so if your camper trailer has a propane or battery platform on the top side of the V hitch/tongue - you may need to do some serious modifications to put the brackets in the correct position. Check the manual and measure before you order! 660463

Excellent product. This is my 2nd Equalizer hitch. First one was a 10,000lb I used on my 29ft Keystone Camper that was around 8500lbs loaded towing with an 04 F250. I now have a 6,000lb I am using on my 6x12 V-nose around 3500lbs with a 600lb tounge weight towing with a 2016 Tacoma. These hitches make a world of difference when towing & are pretty easy to setup. Especially after doing it once lol. 579828

The new hitch allowed us to get our camper almost exactly level. It barely feels like we have something hooked to the truck. We get no wind pushing us around when trucks pass us on the interstate. It was easy to attach to our camper. Your shipment came in exactly when you said it would. Thank you very much for your good service and for the good hitch. 355315


Comments

I have loved your hitches since 1995. We pulled a camper for 10 years without one and basically started avoiding the interstate highways because of what happened when trucks passed us. The guy at the place we stored our camper had a used Equilizer that we bought and used for 12 years. We got a new tow vehicle with a higher hitch and the old Equilizer was welded and could not be adjusted. Thats when we bought the new one. I watch people at the campgrounds wrestling with other hitches and I just calmly hook mine up and go. I hardly feel the camper behind us. You have a great product and I will use it till I cant camp any more.

Driving a 2019 Colorado with a V6 pulling a RPOD 189. I made two (2) trips before installing the device, in which the camper "danced" around quit a bit behind the truck. After I installed the device, the camper stabilized and has been an easy pull since. Also, buy a few extra of the spring "L" clips, because you will eventually loose one, I did. Great product. I would by this again. 725807

We purchased a 19 foot RV travel trailer last year, and even though this may be considered a smaller trailer, it was considerably bigger and heavier than the pop up trailers we have used for the last 20 years, so a new venture for us. I knew I wanted a weight distribution and sway control hitch, but was not sure which to buy. So, I posted the question on this site, and this hitch was the one recommendation by this site's representative. The quality of the hitch and hardware is excellent, and the instructions for installation and adjustment were very clear and easy to understand. So far, we have pulled the trailer on several trips from East Tennessee to central WV. On the long stretches of freeway driving, often with heavy traffic, and on the steep grades, and curves going over the mountains, I was very pleased with the performance of this hitch. The hitch provides excellent sway control, and with proper adjustment there are absolutely no steering or handling issues with the tow vehicle. The guys on this site know their stuff! 702770

Spoke with a knowledgable gal at etrailer.com and she convinced me this is the best hitch to use. I ordered it on Sunday evening, it arrived on Tuesday and was in perfect condition. Hitch took 3 hours to install. A $12.00 (regular wall thickness) 1-7/8 was needed from [on-line retailer]. Hitch works very well. So glad I didn’t buy a cheap hitch. This one does everything well. Highly recommend etrailer.com, EQ37060ET Hitch and 3/4 Drive 12 pt. Socket with (3/4 to 1/2 adapter) socket. I will continue to do business with etrailer.com. 686558

My forst equalizer hitch is a winner. Way easier to use than my friend's version with the chains ... Easy setup and works great on my 4,000 lb. camper. Almost completely eliminated sway from passing trucks, etc. Can back up without unhooking which is great. 662465

Hauling 21 ft. travel trailer. Big difference in how it tows with this hitch as opposed to hauling without an equalizer hitch. Highly recommend this hitch, none better. I have hauled around 4000 miles, mostly mountain roads in the west, with some good winds and my trailer is rock solid with this hitch. Do not tow without a equalizer hitch and if you want the best, get this one. Excellent customer service from e-trailer on this and everything I order from them. About to order rear stabilizer coupler and pins to fix electric stabilizer from them. 658944

I used this to tow my camper from N.J to the west coast. I know that this made a huge difference when towing in high winds and passing tractor trailers. I set this up myself and it was relatively easy. There are plenty of you tube videos to help.I would buy this again without hesitation. 629437

The Equalizer has been a great hitch. I needed the sway control more than the weight distribution in windy Kansas, and this hitch virtually eliminated sway. The weight distribution does alleviate bouncing and makes me feel completely in control of the trailer. I bought the pads to control noise, and I’m glad I did. No complaints. The only downside is that the hitch is heavy and bulky. I’ve yet to find a simple and clean place to store it. 616592

Ever since we purchased this Weight distribution system, we have been on 7 trips with our travel trailer. Every trip the system far exceeded our expectation. The built quality is amazing and by the looks of it, it will last a lifetime if taken care off properly. We would recommend this system to anyone planning to tow their travel trailer and wants the peace of mind that a gust of wind or fast-moving tractor trailer is NOT going to have you take evasive maneuvers. 610518

I have been using my Equalizer weight distribution hitch for a year now. It truly is the best hitch I have ever used. Towing through high winds in eastern Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming our trailer (a 21 foot Escape) tracked perfect with no sway what-so-ever. Also there was one occasion that I had to make a very sudden stop to avoid a deer running in front of me. The trailer was rock solid, with no sway. Thank you Equalizer. It took a little time to set up the system properly, but, with a little help from a few friends it was easy. I found it important to have a local tire shop assist in torquing everything to the recommended specs. Great product and lots of good support from eTrailer. 596391

Just installed this weight distribution system. It took me approx 3 hrs to set it up on my 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It may warrent a 5 rating, but I have only towed my trailer on local roads. Even on local roads it drives smooth. Have not yet taken it on the highway. For the install, I purchased a Powerbuilt 643216 3/4-Inch Drive 12 Point 1-7/8-Inch Socket to install the ball. Worked fine. 590918

Perfect fit and function and easy to install. The ordering process was very simple and the item arrived in perfect condition and within about three days of ordering. The thin wall socket issue was solved simply by going to Harbor Freight and picking up a 3/4” drive SAE socket set that went up to a 2” socket for less than the price of the socket alone and it came with the ratchet necessary to tighten it. My tent camper and tow vehicle are perfectly level. Haven’t taken it out on a trip yet but I know it will ride much better than before as the front end was at least 3” higher than the back prior to putting on Equilizer Weight Distribution System. Thanks for carrying suck a great product. 565553

Would have been 5star. The hitch it well built and strong. I was told by the E-Trailer operator that it came with a 2in ball already installed. Come to find out it doesn’t. This is frustrating now our trip is going to be postponed or canceled. Apparently you need a special sockoand short thread 2in ball. Bummer 547922

I just drove from VT to PA to SC to MD to CT and back to VT, close to 3K miles and this weight distribution/sway control worked great ( I think it did, my first sway bar). Not sure on the effectiveness of the weight distribution as I was pulling with 2018 Jeep G.C. and that SUV does not sag under 500 lbs tongue weight. You can feel that you are pulling a trailer when a semi passes you going over 80 miles an hour, or when you get hit with a side wind on a bridge, but all other conditions are fine (e.g. passing semi truck or normal side wind). Easy to back up into any place. On advice to everybody, keep it lubricated, if you don't, enjoy screeching noise with every turn :). Happy towing. 543094

Excellent! This has been a great product for me. As a first time travel trailer owner I was concerned with the safety of towing a trailer and concerned with controlling swaying of the trailer and tow vehicle. I had towed a rental trailer once and got a good scare when it started swaying when I tried to pass a transport truck. I set this up using the provided instructions and all worked great. Tow vehicle is level and no swaying in traffic or in very windy conditions. I even had to change tow vehicles in the middle of an extended trip and the conversion to the new vehicle was very easy even though I was "on the road". I just followed the instructions again and all worked very well. I highly recommend this unit. 488881

I don't have any previous experience towing travel trailers to compare to, but I could definitely sense it's value and worth.

Very best way to connect to and level a trailer. Trailer sway control is unbelievably good. If one needs to back a trailer (and we all do at one point or another) then this system is the best way to go! 403951

Review from a similar Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control in Weight Distribution


After a pretty easy set up of my new Equal-I-zer hitch I took a 160 mile trip with my travel trailer and I was amazed at how well the anti sway worked. Being passed by large vehicles at high speeds caused virtually no sway in my rig. I am impressed by how well this hitch worked and would recommend it to any one who pulls a travel trailer. 614195

Ask the Experts about this Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
  • A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • Recommended Noise Reduction Jackets for Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution Systems
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37060ET is a great system for totally loaded tongue weights between 200 and 600 lbs. If you are concerned about noise, the Sway Bracket Jackets for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - Qty 2 # EQ95-01-5150 are the better route to go than the lubricant. The jackets will slowly wear and will still give you some friction (although reduced) and will better control the noise as well. Because these systems are designed...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Factory Tow Package
  • I have exactly what you will need for your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to tow your Vintage Airstream with brakes. The first thing you will want is a 7-way trailer connector at the rear of the vehicle and for this I recommend the Hopkins Endurance Quick-Install 7-Way Trailer Connector part # HM42190 which is a direct plug and play option that will not require you to cut or splice any wires/circuits. The square plug on the end of this connector will plug into and replace the 4-way trailer...

  • Should 6,000 lb Equal-i-zer System be Used for Trailer with 550 lb Loaded Tongue Weight
  • It really depends on how much weight you plan on having in the back of your tow vehicle. Since the tongue weight (TW) range of a weight distribution (WD) system includes both the loaded TW of the trailer plus the weight of cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle the 1,000 lbs system # EQ37100ET may be better for your application because it has a TW range of 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs. If you don't plan on having any weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle then you possibly could...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 3500-lb Camper Trailer
  • Apart from the white-knuckle sway effects from sudden wind gusts and air blasts from passing semi trucks, there are some other basic considerations to help you decide if and when you need a sway control system for your trailer set-up. The linked article on weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) systems may help you on this point. Although we do offer basic friction style sway control devices like # 83660 and # 17200 that can help counteract trailer sway these are not going to be able...

  • Solution for Rear Sag on Nissan Frontier with Travel Trailer Hooked Up
  • We do have a nice selection of suspension enhancement products available for your 2015 Nissan Frontier, such as the TorkLift StableLoad Rear Suspension Upgrade # TLA7311 that you mentioned, however I'm not sure that any of them will provide you much more support than you are already getting with the Timbren Springs like # TTORTUN4L installed. Even though you said that you aren't really having any issues with sway or bounce, the best solution for the rear sag you are experiencing is with...

  • Troubleshooting Sway on Trailer that Starts at 65 MPH
  • If you are getting persistent sway at 65 mph a weight distribution system will not be the correct solution. You most likely either have not enough tongue weight or a worn out suspension component that is causing the sway. Does it seem to be any different when you take out the sand bag? Is there any combination that allows the trailer to tow better like with or without water, or with or without the sandbags. Is the trailer sitting level when loaded? Sometime a nose high trailer will have...

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for a 2018 Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup 16BHS
  • The general rule of thumb is that if the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the trailer is more than 50% of the GVWR of the vehicle, a weight distribution system is recommended. Since the 3877 GVWR of your trailer will in fact be more than 50% of the GVWR for both your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado and 2005 GMC Yukon, I would recommend you use a weight distribution system. In order to choose the correct weight distribution system, you will need to find the total tongue weight (TTW) of...

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution For R-Pod 171
  • When selecting a weight distribution system for your R-Pod 171, the key factor is the tongue weight (TW) of your towing setup. This means the total load of your trailer with all the gear and supplies included. You will also need to add any weight from behind your tow vehicle's rear axle to determine total tongue weight. TW is 10% to 15% of the total weight of your fully loaded trailer. For example: a trailer fully loaded at 3,500-lbs would have a TW of 350-lbs to 525-lbs. Ideally,...

  • Everything Needed to Tow a Trailer with Brakes with a 1999 Chevy Astro Van
  • I was able to (miraculously) find an online version of the owner's manual for your 1999 Chevrolet Astro and found on page 4-32 that the max trailer weight you can tow is between 4,500 lbs and 5,500 lbs depending on your axle ratio and if you have a 2WD or AWD version. I recommend checking out your copy of the owner's manual to verify this. In your research you basically already discovered the difference between the Draw-Tite # 75122 and the Curt # C13035. the Draw-Tite has a lighter...

  • Brake Controller and Weight Distribution Hitch for 2017 Nissan Frontier
  • Let's start with a brake controller, and with a 2017 Nissan Frontier, you're right about it needing only to be plugged in. I highly recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195, which is a proportional controller, meaning it acts immediately as you use your Frontier's brakes. The P3 has customizable settings, safeguards to prevent battery drain and shorts, as well as an LCD display. It will plug right into the plug you mentioned just by using adapter # 3050-P. In order to choose the best weight...

  • Weight Distribution System to Tow 2018 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS with 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • If you were to load your 2018 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS up to the max GVWR (which is 3,877 lbs) then the tongue weight (TW) of your trailer should be 380 lbs - 585 lbs. When you choose a weight distribution (WD) system you base it off of the loaded TW of your trailer as well as any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle (2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited). You can find the TW of your trailer with the TW Scale # 5780 on our site or with one of the methods highlighted in the attached...

  • Are Spring Bars on Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Interchangeable?
  • You would not be able to simply replace the spring bars on your Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET weight distribution hitch. Instead you would need to get both the 1,000 lb tongue weight spring bars # EQ90-01-1099 as well as the 1,000 lb head unit # EQ90-02-1000.

  • Recommended Weigh Distribution for a 2015 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 2018 Winnebago Micro Minnie
  • I appreciate all the information you have given. That makes things much easier to make a recommendation for you. The dry weights will increase as you add cargo to your trailer. So as you add the camping supplies, your clothes, etc, the weight of the trailer and the trailer tongue weight will increase. Using a weight distribution system will help as you are able to disperse the weight for a more stable ride. When looking for the best weight distribution system for your trailer...

  • Recommended Hitch Extender for 5,000 lb Travel Trailer with 500 lb Tongue Weight
  • Some extensions are not safe to use for towing no matter the weight. I do have an option for you, but it does require a weight distribution system for your 5K travel trailer. I recommend the Brophy Hitch Extender with Step # ST18. With the proper weight distribution system, this extension is rated for up to 7,000 lbs and up to 700 lbs tongue weight. You will want to make sure your trailer hitch receiver is able to use weight distribution and the trailer and weight distribution system's...

  • Best Weight Distribution System for a Jayco Hummingbird 17 RK
  • 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. An easy way to find this would involve using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780. When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want your total tongue weight to fall in...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 600 Pound Tongue Weight
  • The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET that you referenced is a truly excellent system that features a tongue weight range of 200 to 600 pounds. If you stay under the 600 pound tongue weight capacity, this system will be perfect for your Tacoma and Coachmen trailer. With that being said, if you think there is a possibility that you will exceed the 600 pound limit, which it seems might be the case, I recommend going with a slightly higher-rated setup. The issue with having...

  • Do I Need a Weight Distribution System To Pull a 2,000 Lb Trailer With a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The general rule of thumb is that if the actual weight of the trailer is more than 50% of the vehicle's actual weight then a weight distribution system is recommended. According to my research, your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will weigh between 4,500 to 5,000 lbs and your trailer when fully loaded will likely be near half of this weight so I do recommend you use a weight distribution system. Also, the built-in sway control on a weight distribution system is generally much more...

This will require fascia trimming but will also allow you to get the maximum towing and tongue weight capacity out of your vehicle as the hitch is rated at 6000 lbs towing and 600 lb tongue weight. This is the only confirmed fit we have for your M model vehicle. A weight distribution hitch will help with the overall ride of the trailer and will help mitigate sway. I recommend the...

A weight distribution system will be beneficial anytime the trailer weight is more than half of the tow vehicle's weight. Since your 2014 Silverado 1500 weighs around 4,800 to 5,200 pounds I definitely recommend using a weight distribution system.

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 trailer that weighs around...

  • Friction Sway Control vs. Weight Distribution and Integrated Sway Control for 20-Foot Trailer
  • When a trailer weighs more than half the weight of the tow vehicle, quite likely in the case of your 4000-lb trailer, there will typically be a need for sway control. There are two types of sway control, the stand-alone friction bar style like # 83660 and those shown on the linked page, all of which use controlled friction to help stop trailer sway, and the integrated type of sway prevention that comes with weight distribution systems (WD/SC). These systems both equalize the load on...
