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 - EQ37101ET Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with Integrated -4-Point Sway Control. A weight distribution system creates a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and your trailer. This unit features a 2-5/16" hitch ball. It has a gross towing weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. This is designed for trailers that have a tongue weight of 600 to 1,000 pounds.It fits a 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver that's rated for use with weight distribution. The adjustable shank, or the weight distribution shank, is sold separately, so it's not included with this kit.

If you're in need of one of those, you can find them at etrailer.com.Adding spring bars to your towing setup really helps apply 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. This results in an even distribution of weight throughout your towing setup, and that results in a smoother ride, a more level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.This unit features integrated four point sway control that works to top trailer sway before it begins. It's integrated, so it's not an add on feature. The head is responsible for creating two points of sway control, using what's known as rotational friction. The downward pressure placed on the hitch ball 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 and that creates the 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 the system makes it compatible with surge type brake actuators. These spring bars are designed to flex, offering a controlled, even ride. They are constructed of specialized steel for superior dexterity and spring, and the pliability is important in minimizing trailer bounce.It also has the no drill clamp-on brackets. These can be adjusted along your trailer frame and they don't take that much space above the trailer frame, which accommodates frame mounted items such a gas tanks, battery boxes, tool boxes, generators and so on.When it comes to getting the tilt you need from the head, desired tilt is achieved with the traditional washer design and spacer rivet.

That installs directly on the hitch ball, there's a hole back here, and then the washers get piled on and go between the head assembly and your weight distribution shank. Simply you add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down and fine tune the leverage on your entire system.We're looking at a nice durable steel construction with a dipped steel finish, so the dipped steel is durable and rust and corrosion resistant. It also comes with your 5/8" diameter hitch pin and clip to secure your weight distribution shank inside your 2" by 2" hitch, and it comes with a snap-up lever to ease installation of the spring bars by reducing the amount of lifting required by your trailer jack.Also directly underneath the hitch ball there is a set bolt that can be tightened once you have the unit set up how you want it, and that's going to take out any play or wobble between the head assembly and your weight distribution shank.It comes with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through that whole process step-by-step. Your sway control brackets need to be positioned 27 to 32 inches from the center of the coupler along the trailer frame. This will fit a max trailer frame height of up to 6 inches, and you notice that it has a lot of holes on it, so it is adjustable, with a max trailer height of 6 inches.

The product is made in the USA and covered with a limited lifetime warranty.That's going to do it for today's look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with Integrated 4-Point Sway Control.

Had a Fastway e2 liked it and did a fair job, sure was easy to hook up. After research and RV being at 30 feet, ordered the e4 and it made a difference you can feel. etrailer is a place you can buy with confidence and you always know where your order is during transit . Perfect and I recommend the E4 and etrailer. 420572

Figured out on Saturday what type of anti-sway hitch I needed to order, receive and install by Wednesday night. Tried another site, they couldn't meet the deadline, turned to google and discovered etrailer. Called at 1 PM on Saturday and talked to Steve Z, he got the order placed, and promised to check the status and follow up with me on Sunday. Everything was delivered on Tuesday and that night the hitch was installed, a day ahead of schedule. I don't expect to have a high need for towing / trailering, but when I do I'll be checking and calling etrailer first. On a scale of 1 to 10 their customer service is a 15. 426871

Product is well made and sturdy. Installation instructions were simple and easy to follow. Took about 2 hours from start to finish to install. The problems it solved for me were the truck sagging in the rear when my car hauler is coupled. Now the truck is level along with the trailer. Also when semi's pass by the entire set up is steady. No shaking or swerving. Wish I had put this on sooner. Very pleased. 552541

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


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

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


I had been using a less expensive competitor sway hitch with chains on a 27 ft. camper. I didn't think the performance of the hitch was too bad but I didn't know what I was missing. We recently purchased a 32 ft. toy hauler and I tried using the old hitch. The performance was horrible. After a recommendation on the correct hitch from etrailer and reading the reviews, I purchased the Equalizer 14,000 pound hitch. Man what a difference! The toy hauler pulls straight as an arrow. In addition, the semi trucks don't suck and push the rig all over the road when they pass. Lastly, the wife doesn't have a death grip on the door arm rest. She actually reads a book during the trip which says it all. The only complaint is that it is noisy when pulling through the campgrounds. But who really cares when it performs flawlessly on the road. Thanks so much etrailer! Walt 442118


Comments

I It’s working out great! I bought the plastic clips for the L brackets to reduce the hitch noise when entering and leaving in the campground but didn’t help. Nonetheless, still a wonderful hitch and would buy again.

The jackets reduce the sound by a very small degree, but remember that metal on metal friction that creates the noise is what's providing your sway control so eliminating the noise would eliminate the performance of that function as well.

The Equal-I-Zer hitch has worked very well for towing our Keystone Passport travel trailer. I like that achieves both sway control and weight distribution. In addition, I'd recommend getting the Sway Bracket Jacket pads that go under the spring bars as it really quiets down the hitch operation. Great product, very well made and worth the money. 575533

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. 427958

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


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.

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


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

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

By far the best website I found. Easy to use and tons of information about the products they offered. I shopped all over for the best price on the equalizer hitch and leveling system. They had it and it included the shank and ball. Can't wait to go camping. 355590

Drove new travel trailer back from Indiana using 12k equalizer 4 point system adding plastic seperators that totally eliminated any metal on metal noise. There was a strong wind driving back across Ohio Valley. The 4 point system worked beautifully. 372760

Dena was very helpful and knowledgeable on the selection of my weight distribution hitch. I had purchased a thin wall socket, But my buddy had one that I could have, so she made it easy to return the socket. The distribution hitch is perfect for my truck and trailer, it was easy to assemble and with the instruction pamphlet that came with it, it was easy to set up as well. 565746

I think everyone knows that Equal-I-Zer makes a great product. The real story is Etrailer. This is my second time ordering from them and it simply can't get any better, period. Easy to use site. Fast and easy ordering. Super fast shipping. Great communication during whole process. And great prices too. I would use them even if they were a whole lot more, just for the convenience. All the headaches with Amazon are not worth it. 239030

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

after searching multiple websites for the Equalizer 10,000lb gtw/ 1000 lb tw weight distribution and 4 point sway control hitch, E-Trailer had the best deal for the this hitch. 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

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


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

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


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

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


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

I am writing about the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System. I am pleased with the quality of product and easy install. Specific instructions provided. C.S. was excellent from order to delivery. The only feedback from a negative point is the in-ability to attach the ball to the hitch. Had to take it to a RV shop to have it torqued to proper weight. Would recommend this be done prior to shipping product out. 439863

Great product except for one thing. If you are going to sell this hitch either sell it with ball already attached or include the 1 7/8 thin wall socket with it. Could not find socket anywhere locally and finally had to dismantle Equilizer bar sockets which is no easy task , and then use regular socket that I already had, what a pain. Other than that great service and ultra fast shipping. I think I ordered it Tuesday night and had it Friday night. Great job. Will repost once all is installed and try it out. 275437

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Rockwood Mini Lite 23.7 Trailer
  • Your best option is going to be the Reese Strait Line part # RP66084 as it has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs which would be perfect for your tongue weight of 725 lbs. The sway control on this system is the only style on the market that actively works to prevent sway before it starts. The other very popular option is the Equalizer WD system part # EQ37101ET which would also work great with 725 lbs of tongue weight but instead uses 4 point of friction for sway control.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for a 16 Foot Haulmark Cargo Trailer
  • I have just the weight distribution for you and your 16 x 7 Haulmark Cargo Trailer. For the weighs you mentioned the 10,000lbs Equal-i-zer system # EQ37101ET will work great for your 2015 Ram 3500 SRW and 2-5/16 inch coupler on your Haulmark. This system has a 4-point sway control system that doesn't include a shank already so that you can get the one you need. The Equal-i-zer shank I recommend for you is the # EQ90-02-4400 which has a 9 inch drop. The only optional add-on you may...

  • What Is The Best Weight Distribution System For A 2018 Ford Expedition
  • In order to determine the best weight distribution system for your needs, you will want to determine your vehicle and trailers total tongue weight. The trailer's tongue weight can be calculated by using a scale such as the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780. In addition to your trailers loaded ready to tow tongue weight, you will also need to account for any cargo stored behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Ford Expedition and 5600-lb Dry Weight Trailer
  • The main differences between the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System # FA94-00-1061 and the similarly-rated Equal-i-zer system # EQ37101ET are that the Fastway has 2-point sway control whereas the Equal-i-zer uses 4-point sway control, and that the Fastway e2 includes a shank and hitch ball. These must be added to the Equal-i-zer system. The key to selecting a weight distribution (WD) and sway control (SC) system for your trailer is to know it's fully-loaded, road-ready tongue weight...

It is fairly easy to do though but you will need a thin-walled socket # EQ70-00-4800 to make it easier. We can do it here only if the system is also installed here.

  • Leveling and Weight Distribution for a Truck with Camper Pulling a Trailer

First, you'll check with your trailer manufacturer to be sure that your trailer is approved for use with a weight distribution system. Some trailers, especially aluminum ones, can be too weak to stand up against the forces applied by a distribution system and can fail. You'll also verify that your extension and hitch are rated for use with weight distribution systems. Next, you'll...
