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 (sold separately) 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 - WD With Sway Control - EQ37061ET Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look an equalizer weight distribution system with four point sway control. A weight distribution system creates a more stable right for your tow vehicle and your trailer. Now this unit features a 2" hitch ball, has a gross towing weight capacity of 6,000 pounds and it is designed for trailers that have a tongue weight of 200 to 600 pounds. Now it fits a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver rated for use with weight distribution. However, this system does not come with the adjustable shank or weight distribution shank. That is sold separately.

So it's not included with this kit. If you don't already have one, you can check out a lot of different options at etrailer.com. Now adding spring bars to your towing set up really helps apply leverage, which is designed to transfer the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer. That results in an even distribution of weight throughout your towing set up.So that's gonna result in a smoother ride, a more level ride and it's gonna give you the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch. This unit features four point sway control, which works to stop trailer sway, really before it begins.

The head is responsible for creating two points of sway control using what's known as rotational friction. So the downward pressure placed on the hitch call fights or battles the upward pressure created by the spring bars. The upward force is placed on the spring bars on both sides of the system, creating that rotational friction that forces your trailer to stay in line all the time. 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. The unique design of this system makes it compatible with surge type brake actuators.

The spring bars flex for a controlled, even ride. They're constructed of specialized steel for superior dexterity and spring and that pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce.Also, it features the no drill clamp on brackets that can be adjusted along the trailer frame. Now these don't take that much space along the trailer frame. So this system is great to accommodate frame mounted items, such as gas tanks, battery boxes, tool boxes, generators and so on. When it comes to tilting your head assembly, that is achieved using the traditional spacer rivet and washer design.

It installs directly in a slot underneath the hitch ball here and then the washers would be installed between the head assembly and the weight distribution shank and then simply what you would do is add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down and fine tune the leverage on your entire system. It does come with the hardware to attach this to your weight distribution shank and it comes with a 5/8" diameter hitch pin and clip to secure your weight distribution shank inside of your 2" by 2" hitch. Now we're looking at a durable steel construction with a dipped design. So that's going to help it resist rust and corrosion. Also comes with a snap up lever.This eases installation of your spring bars by reducing the amount of lifting required by your trailer jack. When it comes to installing it, it comes with detailed installation instructions. The sway control brackets would be positioned anywhere from 27 to 32" back from the center of your coupler. These will fit a trailer frame height up to 6". So it has multiple adjustment holes there. So it will fit most trailer frames out there on the market. But the max trailer frame height is 6" the product is made in the USA and covered with a limited lifetime warranty. That's gonna do it for today's look at the equalizer weight distribution system with integrated four point sway control.

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


I received this hitch a few short days after placing my order and as soon as it arrived I unpackaged it to admire the contents. Everything was intact and ready to assemble, just as expected. I also ordered the special thin walled socket, which I am glad I did since my mechanic friend that did my torquing didn't have a socket that would work for this hitch ball. I know it is expensive but I wanted everything done right. I installed the hitch and set it up following the directions in the manual, and everything turned out perfectly. I think from start to finish it took the wife and I less than an hour and a half. Easy, and according to my measurements and a visual everything looked perfect. None of this is rocket science, and the installation is truly easy. Well, time to try it out, and what great timing, we left Saturday morning in a 40 MPH headwind for 20 miles, and then another 25 miles with the wind quartering at us on a busy highway. This hitch worked flawlessly! I was tickled with the whole ordeal, and today coming back with no wind at all it wasn't much different than the day we had the wind. You know what wind means, right? WINDY IN ND. Yep, we get our share. This hitch served us very well, and I am extremely pleased with my purchase and the ease of installation and set up. I would order it again in a heartbeat. My tow vehicle: 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with max trailer tow package. 6.2 L with 8 speed transmission. My travel trailer: 2016 Jayco Octane SL, weighs in loaded at 6100 lbs with a hitch weight of 910 lbs. 517401


Comments

A whole year has gone by, and Im still extremely satisfied with my equalizer hitch. I hear the squeaks when I make my turns, I know people talk about this hitch being slightly noisy, but every time I hear it I smile. I know its back there, doing its thing, and it does it extremely well. I would buy this hitch again in a New York minute. I am very pleased. Did I say Im VERY pleased? Lol. Its that good.

Product was easy to install, following instructions that came with. Video's online also helpful. It was recommended to use thin wall 1 7/8" socket to tighten the hitch ball nut, but was able to get a impact socket into the space. The trick is to turn the square weight distribution receiver's out to the side. ( ie...perpendicular to the hitch receiver. ) They come from factory at a 45 degree angle, turn them out to 90 degree's. Then the socket fits in to tighten the nut. Great videos online from product on how to make sure your weight distribution is correct once installed on tow vehicle and trailer. 609508

12000 lbs. hitch was a great improvement over my previous bent bar hitch with chains. Trailer sway has decreased a lot. MY 35 foot trailer pulls straight except when it is windy. I am no longer bothered by passing vehicles. Was noisy until I added the nylon pads from equalizer. Much quite now. 610499


Comments

Keep in mind that the jackets or pads will decrease the effectiveness of the sway control to a degree because they limit some of the metal-on-metal friction which provides the sway control.

Lindy was very helpful verifying the correct model for my new 19 ft TT. The hitch arrived in 2 boxes - very heavy! This hitch is built like it belongs on a tank - glad I purchased the hitchgrip carrying tool. All of the parts are heavy duty and well finished. The etrailer installation video on YouTube is very helpful to better demonstrate the installation manual instructions. My dealer installed the ball since they had the thin-wall socket. Everything installed easily and fit well. Need to load up the new TT and make final adjustments if necessary. 493532

This is one slick setup. I got it tuned in perfectly on the second try. Instructions are very specific and very accurate. I found only one thing that could be better - the bolts that hold the ball mount to the receiver bar are too long, at least 1" too long. A standard socket won't fit over them to torque the nut - shorter bolts or a warning that a deep socket is needed would be nice. This seems like an anomaly, as everything else was a perfect fit. Good price, speedy delivery, as always. One caution, this thing is heavy! 283591

We made a trip to the Pacific Northwest from Arkansas and I have to say, the hitch performed perfectly. Even in a high wind, which is common in Wyoming and the plain states there was no problem keeping a straight line going down the road. One time, when I wasn't paying attention and ran off onto the shoulder of the road, the trailer didn't sway at all but kept straight and allowed me to return to the road without incident. I would recommend this hitch to anyone pulling a trailer of any significant weight behind them. I have a 33 foot RV and pulling it with a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500. 474796

Its been over a year since I purchased my Equalizer hitch system and I am completely satisfied with it. Occasionally I have to spray some lubricant on the pivot points on the receiver end to keep the noise down but other than that It works as advertised and I would again rate it 5 stars.

I received this hitch about a month ago and couldn't install right at first due to some issues I was having but I have finally got it installed and set up right. This is great! I will go on my maiden voyage Memorial weekend but I'm sure it is going to perform as expected. Excellent price that no one can touch. Instructions are easy to follow and detailed the way it should be. Time, was about as expected, so don't rush because you don't want to miss any steps. 314559

Well I have owned this hitch for a year and it has worked flawlessly. In July we took our camper on a 2000 mile trip and we had no issues with the hitch at all. We were in all types of traffic through large and small cities, we didnt have any sway issues because the hitch, now broken in, works much better than I knew it would. I had installed the pads under the slide bars and use the grease to quieten it down when in all the turns I made during this trip. I dont believe there is a better hitch out there that can tame my 38 ft 9000lb Jayco than this Equalizer. Best money spent here. 11/7/17

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.

Great weight distribution system! Easy to install and adjust. I've used it for over a year now and find it quick and easy to use. However, I quickly lost the black 'persuasion bar' so paint yours red for better visibility when you set it down (although you'll rarely need it). 488981

Hitch has performed great after a year. Quality is good, 4-pt sway control is noticeably helpful, but only if you have the hitch setup correctly. I had the RV dealer set this up for me, and the first 300 miles of towing a 7,000 lb trailer with my F150 was rather uncomfortable. Once at my home, I spent a good 30 minutes dialing in the hitch, and now it works great. It IS squeaky in turns. We use white lithium grease (at the front of the hitch, not the rear L brackets that need the friction) and it helps, but it still is a little embarrassing pulling out of the gas station as it creaks and we get "the stares." If I could buy it again I definitely would, despite the turn squeaks because it is easy to connect and disconnect, it provides decent sway control, and the price is attractive. If you are on the fence about the 10,000lb unit or the 12,500lb, I wish I would have bought the higher unit for my 7,000lb load. Because I am nearer to the limit of WD for the 10,000lb unit, it requires lots of the included washers to angle the hitch head to the proper geometry for the load. The hitch head angle then makes disconnecting my trailer somewhat tricky if I am at an unlevel campsite. The head will snag the trailer ball and I'll have to rock the trailer back and forth to get it to disconnect. I think the 12,500lb unit's stiffer arms and thereby better geometry would release better... YMMV 600852

Honestly a great purchase. Read a ton of reviews before buying. Had the traditional style weight distribution hitch with sway bar attachment before, and I'll definitely say that I have no intentions of going back! The sway control is absolutely great. Hauled a 30' travel trailer from Atlanta, GA to upstate New York and back with absolutely no sway issues whatsoever. If set up correctly, it should do the trick. I will say, however, that it can be slightly loud at low speeds, but is just something to get used to. Would recommend this hitch to anyone. Worth the investment. 338779

From my limited experience with the hitch, it appears to be very high quality. Have not had it out on a long trip yet, but did do a 20 mile road test with speeds up to 70mph and it was very stable. It is on a Toyota Tundra 5.7 and is pulling a 23.5 foot toyhauler that probably weighed around 6500 lbs. at the time of my short road test. 427957

The hitch works great. Distributes load and no sway. I have a Dodge Diesel pretty good weight to balance against 7500# trailer so trailer isn't going to push around anyway. I like ability to back in to spaces not having to drop load from hitch. I use the plastic inserts (which should be included not extra, MHO) and hitch does not make noise. It takes serious focus on instructions to setup hitch. I had to reduce amount of load pushed to front of truck because it caused loss of traction. The torque on fasteners was beyond my tooling capabilities so set hitch, tighten as much as possible then took to Les Schwab who accomplished the finish torques. I would buy it again. 329832

Hitch has functioned flawlessly over the last year. No sway on hiway. Im about to move hitch to new tow vehicle and readjust. The new truck is much lighter than original tow vehicle. The hitch will hopefully provide the stability between lighter tow vehicle and same trailer. We shall see

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

The Equalizer Weight Distribution System w/4 point sway control is as good as advertised. The installation took me approx 2.5 hrs and it was not difficult, just took a little time to make fine tuning adjustments to get the performance from the system that I wanted. The Equalizer System has removed an estimated 95% of the sway issue that I was having while pulling a 29 ft travel trailer with a mid-size Chevrolet Colorado pickup. Looking forward to getting out on the road and giving it a thorough testing, but so far it meets my expectations. 402238

This hitch was a great investment!! It has made a huge difference in how my trailer handles in the Texas winds. I used to get white knuckled every time that I set out on a trip with my previous chain hitch and seldom ever felt comfortable in pulling the trailer at speeds in excess of 45 mile per hour. Now I can move along at normal Dallas freeway speeds in comfort. This hitch was a welcomed addition to my RV experience.

The installation process was fairly easy, but if you're planning on doing it yourself, keep in mind you'll need the 1 7/8" thin-walled socket (EQ70-00-4800), and most likely a 3/4 drive extension to clear the head, as well as a torque wrench that can read up to 420+ lb/ft. I wish etrailer would sell the extension like they do the socket, though - I lucked out and found one locally, but they only had one, and they were the only store I could find in 50 miles that had 3/4 drive extensions. Hitching is a little more difficult than using a chain WD system because the arms are so hard to get into position, but not needing a separate anti-sway mechanism is great, and after dealing with a failure and warranty claim with a competitor's chain-based system, the quality, customer service, and warranty terms of the Equal-i-zer really set it apart. 467432

All good with this hitch! We have pulled in high cross wind without much noticeable sway. Our truck and the trailer are level. After I learned the trick of raising the tongue a little above horizontal, I can install and remove the arms without using the cheater bar. I had to adjust the hitch after I traded trucks but it was a simple thing and took very little time. We've had people stop to look at it because they were tired of using the hitches with chain adjustment. Couldn't be happier. The support from etrailer staff is great. 387470

Product works as advertised. We pull a 10,000 lb 24' catering trailer that the weight distribution is far from even with convection oven, 2 door commercial refrigerator and more. We were having severe swaying problems on the highways. Bought this sway control and it stopped all swaying. Before I couldn't hit 55mph without uncontrollable sway and now there is no speed limit that causes sway. Very easy to hook up, follow directions and its a no brainer. After 1 year I still use it every time and seems to work just as well. Re-adjusted for a new truck in minutes. Doesn't interfere with any wire or chains and we have 3 camera system along with custom frame platform on front of trailer to support 2- 100 lb propane tanks and a generator and was still easy to fit on and works great. 517465

I picked up my new reflection travel trailer in June 2017 and had the EQ37120ET installed. That day unfortunately was a rainy and very windy day. As I got on the road for my 130 mile trek back home the rains and the wind intensified. I noticed that I felt some wind movement against the trailer but I was not tossed all over the road and my tow vehicle and trailer stayed true and straight in the road lane. I was pulling at 60 MPH and was surprised how well this product was performing. Also when big trucks would pass this product kept that pushing away and sucking in motion from happening. I can attest that this product worked great and better than I thought. This product also kept my tow vehicle and trailer level, no steering problems at all. This product is well worth the money and performs great. I recommend this product. 401043

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

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.

I bought this hitch because the dealer I purchased my new trailer from undersized the new Equal-i-zer hitch I purchased along with the trailer. Even though I used the hitch for the last year I finally decided I had to upgrade it because the spring bars were just not quite adequate keeping the trailer level and transferring the weight. My experience with the Equal-I-zer hitch has been satisfactory because of ease of hooking up and unhooking. The integrated friction control has worked very well and the 4 point design makes backing up without having to unhook a friction control device is convenient. You can leave the spring bars on when backing up. I am quite happy with the Equal-i-zer brand and would recommend this hitch to anyone in the market for a new hitch. 575202

Just bought a new Travel Trailer, had been using a Reese Weight distribution set up with traditional sway bar. This system worked well but had the tractor trailers pushing me around and on windy days I had to reduce highway speeds dramatically. So, I chose to upgrade to the Equalizer for the new TT. I had the Professionals install it since it was raining but the videos and information on etrailer make me confident I could have done it with the correct tools. The Equalizer was fantastic on the 75 mile ride home in the rain with heavy Tractor Trailer traffic. Had little to no sway. Very pleased with my decision. This is a heavy duty system and is easy to hook up. I ordered by calling etrailer because I had a question about shipping and delivery since I needed the new set up for delivery of my new TT. Lisa was more than helpful answering my questions and getting the hitch to me on time. I strongly recommend The Equalizer and etrailer for your towing needs. 426708

I have a new 2012 F150 Ford XLT which does NOT pull my trailer as well as my old truck. I was not comfortable with the amount of sway and could not go over 50mph. On Sunday night after returning I purchased the Equal-i-zer. On Thursday it arrived and we literally had to look at the instruction book once. After 30 minutes the installation was completed and no extra parts... I merged onto the highway to test the equipment. I reached a cruising speed of 70mph and had absolutely NO SWAY. The fact that I now have a piece of mind knowing that the Equal-i-zer is less than that of a life when you are towing without the proper equipment. Other products may be available but research was extensive before I purchased the Equal-i-zer. The shear strength is visible and the product is very well made. The fasteners are heavy, the hitch is heavy, and the stabilizer bars are heavy. This is a 5 star product and every trailer owner should own the Equal-i-zer. The best thing about all of this is it was a product that was sold without a gimick and does the job well. Hat's off to you!! Scott S. 47603

I have bought a F150 2013. having simular issues do you know the weight of your trailer I have apx. 5500 lb trailer tongue weight about 550 to 600 lbs

-- comment by: mark b - 11/24/2013

The 550-600 tongue weight falls into an in-between area with Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems. The 6K system is built for 400-600 pounds tongue weight, and you are at the end of that range so it may not be a good choice particularly if you have any gear in the tow vehicle rear of the axle. Remember any weight behind the axle counts towards your tongue weight. The next step up is the 10K system featured on this page with a recommended tongue weight range of 400-1000 pounds. Now this would work, but it may be a bit overkill. The extra tension of these bars when paired with a 600 pound tongue weight may ride a bit stiff. If you are not particular to the Equal-i-zer systems, you may want to check out the Fastway 8K system, part FA92-00-0800. It may be a bit closer of a match to your trailer.

This is one strong hitch. Assembly and adjustment instructions are well written and easy to follow but you'd better have the right tools and a level, smooth parking lot to do the work. The instructions do not mention how stiff the arm sockets will be when the hitch is being assembled and do not cover lubrication until later in maintenance. Be sure to get the correct height/drop shank. I used the Equal-i-zer "Find the right shank" wizard on their website and came up short (literally) so had to order a second, longer one. etrailer was great about taking the short shank back as long as it hadn't been used (installed and adjusted on vehicle was OK, just not having actually towed anything). etrailer also wasted NO time in getting my parts to me--three days via Big Brown to a small town in Idaho. USPS can't get a letter delivered that far away any quicker (not bashing USPS by any means). 564812

Not only the best deal but the best price and free shipping as well. In addition E-Trailer also offered a great price pledge, if you find an equal product cheaper they will price match. When I found a cheaper unit and emailed E-Trailer they matched the cheaper price and I saved another $xx.the hitch was also shipped quickly and I received it 3 days later. Their customer service was great. they were informative, polite and quick with all parts of the transaction, including the price match refund. great, price, great service, I would recommend them and will shop with them again. 319704

Worth every cent. We bought a 2008 26' Sun Valley Road Runner two weeks ago and immediately took it on a trip to the N. Georgia mountains behind our 2006 Silverado 1500HD. Very scary up and back with a serious sway problem that kept me from going over 50 mph. Upon returning I researched heavily on how to "prevent" sway and not just "reduce" it. Your website was extremely helpful in explaining the differences in all the products available. The product reviews were very favorable for the Equal-i-zer four point system so it made my decision an easy one. Within two days of ordering, it arrived and I just installed it today. It was very easy to set up. I took it out for a run on the interstate and WOW what a difference! I could run along at 65-70 mph with absolutely no sway and very little bounce. This is the first time I had to buy a weight distribution system and if I ever have to do it again I will certainly go back through etrailer.com. The Equal-i-zer is a great product. 281160

Fantastic Hitch! etrailer had the best price by far, arrived within 4 days of placing the order in excellent condition with no shipping damage or missing parts. Mt RV Dealer did the original setup, but their installers apparently never watched a video on proper installation, as they took no before or after measurements of my truck wheel well height, never used a torque wrench, and placed the sway bracket assemblies at 27 inches from the ball when 32 inches (factory recommended distance) was easily available on the trailer. Many other install errors as well like incorrect number of spacer washers and incorrect L bracket mounting hole positions, all of which caused my 2016 Ford F-150 to squat while towing. Never assume the dealer service department knows what they are doing! Once home, I set the hitch up as instructed by Equal-i-zer without too much difficulty. This hitch now has my truck sitting level and tows like a dream with very little sway at all, and I tow a 35 foot travel trailer. Keep the hitch lubed as instructed, and use the optional sway bracket jackets and this hitch is fairly quiet. Well worth the money, no more white knuckles!! 453213

Cuts down sway considerably. Noisy on turns because it uses friction on bars to control the sway. Definatly worth the price but not as good as a Hensley. Would I buy again, yes. Hook up is a little more physical getting the friction bars onto the L brackets but easier once you learn not to put full weight of trailer on the ball until you position the friction side bars on the brackets. Own several trailers and this purchase allows me to move to trailer needed by just buying an extra set of L brackets for each trailer. Seems to be well built and no problems after a year of use. Glad I paired my purchase with power post. This helps find the sweet spot when hooking up. 558212


Comments

If you hitch up the trailer, and use the trailer jack to raise both the front of the trailer and the rear of the tow vehicle by a few inches, youll find that enough of the tension is taken out of the system so the spring bars are easier to put in place.

I think this hitch saved our lives and probably others. This is my first "big" camper I've been towing trailers and pop ups for years. A 23' Grey Wolf Toyhauler with my 2011 Ford Expy as the TV out in front. I had been talking with more mature campers from work about the high prices of some of these WD hitches.... who wisely advised... don't go cheap on tires, brakes or hitches. I bit the bullet, took a little heat from the wife, cause I had it professionally installed too. (This thing is massive). I'll add pics next time I hookup. Plus rolling on $1200 of new Good Year AT's So me and my wife had just pulled out from Clabough's camp grounds after a week of great exploring, great weather and fun smoky Mtn motorcycle riding. We were heading north on 441, not to the highway yet. Probably not on the road more than 20 min or so driving through a small town. Maybe Severville Anyway, 4 lanes, maybe 40mph or 45mph. Following a car, and just talking. Then what seemed to be out of no where, I looked up to see the car was stopped at a red light right in front of us. When did that light turn red!! I had less than a second to react. I knew I couldn't stop. No one coming left or right at the intersection. No one to my right. It was tight, but I might be able to make it.... I swerved HARD right, then back with a HARD left... missing the car in front of us, and the sidewalk. We went sailing through the intersection totally unscathed... and THE CAMPER FOLLOWED ALONG PERFECTLY!! Silence. Neither of us said a word for what seemed like 5 minutes. I'm not even sure who spoke first. I recall someone saying like, did that just happen? And "we're not doing that again" So guys, it may seem like a lot of money, but I'd say it's pretty cheap. I'll just repeat what I was told... don't cheap out on tires, brake, or hitches. Happy camping. 422706

This is the second Equalizer hitch I have had. I needed to replace my first one as I bought a larger camping trailer and the older equalizer didn't have the proper tongue weight rating. We drive a 2011 Tundra TRD 4x4 with a 5.7 liter. We pull a 2017 mallard M292 by hartland that is 34'-9" with a height of 10''- 4" weight is 6905 lbs. Dry with a tongue weight of 725 lbs. Living in the mountains of Western North Carolina I have many curves and tractor trailers to deal with on I-40. Everywhere we go is down the mountain and to return home is always up hill. At no time have I ever had my trailer do any swaying. Leveling issues are never a problem with my Equalizer hitch. I believe it is the best hitch on the market, hands down. Having the wife happy and relaxed and not thinking about the trailer while on long hauls keeps me calm and focused. It took about 2 hours to install and adjust. etrailer has done a great job once again and Molly was the best 452533

Ordered this product for the built in sway control. My last hitch required another device to achieve this, but I didn't care for the additional work when backing up or on wet surfaces. The order shipped quickly and arrived intact in 2 separate packages. The smaller of the two, contained the hitch shank and main body. It's heavy, so it was expected that the box would have a hole. The other larger package was sealed and intact. All parts were present. Setup was straightforward, documentation excellent. Particularly the places to annotate measurements. The manual was small but effective. The ball mounting requires a thin walled 1 7/8 socket. I didn't buy this, my RV dealer torqued my setup for nothing. Very satisfied with this hitch thus far. Will update when I have had a chance to put it through the motion. 525174

I purchased this hitch for a 9000lbs travel trailer with a 1001lbs tongue weight. If your debating between a less expensive round bar and this setup, spend the money. This hitch is by far a better, easier, and safer setup. I purchased this hitch to replace a Pro-series round bar with a friction sway control bar. The Equal-i-zer's 4 point sway control is big step up from a single point sway control system. The 1st drive felt secure and safe. Install was easy, but time consuming for a 1st time installer. But worth it in the end. Here's some pointers. 1. get the right tools, rent or barrow a the torque wrench to do the hitch ball 430ft/lbs, and shank bolts 320ft/lbs. The piece of mind that it's correct is worth it. 2. Plan for the afternoon, not a couple of hours. 1st setup is going to be close but your going to have to adjust it so plan on taking something apart. but setup is relatively easy, esp with the right tools. I had the trailer level the 1st go around to 2.5". So I had to move the head up one hole in the shank and then it was within 1". Distribution setup was still with in a proper setup, so I didn't have to make any further adjustments. As far as the coupling and uncoupling the hitch. Using the tongue jack to release the tension is easy to do and quick. Esp. with an electric jack. I never liked the round bar with chain setup on my previous hitch. High quality, easy install and setup, and seems to have great sway control. 305090

This was bought to support an F250 with a 20' BigTex equipment trailer. Prior to buying the hitch, I had a bad experience with my old truck and a non-equalizing hitch, which prompted purchasing this with the new truck. This hitch is outstanding. Very heavy duty, and the load equalizing features are excellent. The sway bars can be difficult to install when less than fully loaded, but can be swapped with different weight bars. All in all a great piece of equipment. 360679

  • For a weight distribution system that should be rated for the trailer you plan to tow with your 2011 Honda Pilot that does not have a shank you would want the part # EQ37061ET which has a tongue weight range of 200-600 lbs. For a very long drop shank we have the part # C17124 which will work well. It can do a drop of up to 7-1/2 inches.

  • Will a Different Shank Brand Fit an Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System
  • I actually do not recommend the use of Reese shank # RP54970 with an Equal-I-zer weight distribution system, # EQ37061ET, because the Reese design is such a departure from the Equal-I-Zer design. A shank such as Fastway # FA92-02-4213 or Curt # 17120 are better options and either would work well for you.

  • Can The Shank From One Weight Distribution System be Used on Another System
  • Yes, you will be able to use your current weight distribution shank on the Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution System, # EQ37061ET. All the other needed parts will be included with the new weight distribution system. For installing the trailer ball to the weight distribution head, I recommend using a thin walled socket like # EQ70-00-4800. This socket is designed to work with Equal-I-Zer hitches

  • How to Reduce Sway When Towing a Trailer With a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado
  • I have a couple of recommendations for you. A truck suspension enhancement system will help reduce sag and will help with sway especially if you are close to the maximum towing weight limit of your truck. If you are not close to the weight limit, adding suspension enhancement systems will enhance driving stability. I recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRCK15S for your truck. These will help stabilize and level your 2013 Chevrolet Silverado. However, if you...

  • Availability of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Compatible with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • For the 2-1/2 inch receiver you'd need to use an Equal-I-zer hitch along with their shank for a 2-1/2 inch receiver, part # EQ90-02-4900. The Equal-I-zer system you would choose will depend on the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer, plus the weight of anything carried in the bed behind the rear truck axle. I'll link you to an FAQ article that outlines how to determine your trailer's tongue weight. For tongue weights up to but not exceeding 400 lbs, use part #...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2016 Ram
  • In order to choose the best weight distribution hitch, you will first need to know your total tongue weight. That weight is going to be the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go 2018 R-Pod 180 plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ram. To determine this you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in the help article on determining tongue weight I've linked for you.

  • Recommended Drop Shank for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
  • The adjustable shank that is included with the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET can be replaced with one that features a larger drop like # EQ90-02-4400. This adjustable shank has a maximum drop of 9 inches from the top of the hitch receiver opening. Since the included shank in this system is not sufficient for towing your trailer level, I recommend instead going with the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37061ET. This system has the exact same 200-600 pound...

  • Does the Weight of the Weight Distribution System Count as Tongue Weight When Picking Out WD System
  • This is a very good question, but you do not need to count the weight distribution system as added tongue weight when you use it. We have had several weight distribution manufacturers come out and specify this. 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 of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I...
