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 - WD With Sway Control - EQ37140ET Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System with 4-Point Sway Control. Now, a weight distribution system creates a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and for your trailer. This unit features a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, it's included. It has a gross towing weight capacity of 14000 pounds, and it is designed for trailers that have a tongue weight of 1000 to 1400 pounds. It slides into 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver that's rated for us with weight distribution.Now, with the weight distribution system, one of the main components is the spring bar. 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.

That results in an even distribution of weight throughout. It results in a smooth ride, a level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.This unit features integrated 4-point sway control that's designed to work and stop trailer sway, really before it ever begins or before it's felt by the driver or by those riding in the vehicle. The head, right here, creates two points of sway control using rotational friction, so 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, creating the rotation friction that forces your trailer to stay in line at all times. 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 to the trailer tongue.This unique design makes this system compatible with surge-type brake actuators.

The spring bars are designed to flex for a controlled, even ride. These spring bars are constructed of a specialized steel for superior dexterity and spring, so this pliability is very important in minimizing trailer bounce. The brackets are a no-drill, clamp-on bracket that can be adjusted along the trailer frame. They don't take up much space on the trailer frame, so this system is great for accommodating frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, battery boxes, toolboxes, generators, and so on.When it comes to the head assembly, you can tilt it. Desired tilt is achieved with a traditional spacer rivet and washer design, so you just add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down and fine-tune the leverage on the entire system.

That basically installs between the head assembly and the mount right here. Also, on the bottom, we do have a set screw that can be tightened once you have it set the way you want it, and that's really gonna help eliminate any rattle or play between the head assembly and the shank that's included with the kit.The steel has all been dipped, so it's a dipped steel construction. It's very durable and corrosion resistant. 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. The product's made in the USA.

The sway control brackets get positioned about 27 to 32 inches back from the center of your coupler along your trailer tongue or trailer frame. This will fit maximum trailer frame heights of up to six inches. As you can see, it has a lot of holes on it, so it is completely adjustable to thus fit your particular trailer frame. Again, the shank is included, as well as the pin and clip to secure it in your hitch. All the necessary hardware is included as well.The shank link from the center of the hitch pin hold to the center of the adjustment holes is about eight inches. From the center of the hitch pin hold to the center of the hitch ball is about 12 inches. The total height adjustment along the shank is 7 1/2 inches, so if you're using this in the rise position with the head assembly at the highest setting, it's gonna give you a maximum rise of around seven inches. That's measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tip of your hitch to the top of the ball platform. If you have this in the drop position with the head assembly at the lowest setting, it's gonna give you a maximum drop of around three inches. The holes on the unit are separated on center by an inch and a quarter, so that's your incremental height adjustment. Again, the product's made in the USA and it's covered with a limited lifetime warranty.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution system with Integrated 4-Point Sway Control.

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

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

I must say that this isn't my first equal-i-zer hitch. Ive been a owner since 2008. I just needed to go up to a bigger size due to a bigger trailer, So there were no surprises. I knew exactly what I was buying. Just as expected, like my previous smaller 1000/10000 lb version, Excellent quality, simple set-up, and works great. As always, etrailer customer service is top notch. 351054

The weight distribution hitch is what I expected. The only problem was some of the parts were missing. I called the manufacturer and they agreed with me that they had been unintentionally left out. They're sending me those parts. 440192

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



- EQ37140ET
by:

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.

The Equal-I-zer hitch was a night and day difference. The trailer tracked perfectly with no sway what so ever, even with a very windy day. The whole unit (truck and trailer ) has become very easy to handle and docile on the road. Thank you very much. The hitch worked as advertised and is easy and quick to install. I would recommend this hitch to anyone needing an anti-sway weight distributing hitch. 260967

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.

Walt - 11/21/2018

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.

Just got the equalizer 14000 weight distribution hitch and the airlift bags in today from ups. Took a little over 2 hours to install both. The hitch I had before combined with the stock ram 1500 suspension was all over the road with my toy hauler. I couldn't go over 35-40 miles an hour with out feeling like I was going to lose my rig and anyone that's ever been in that situation knows what a white knuckle experience that is. I just got back from a test drive and it is unbelievable the difference those two items made. I got up to 70 and it drove like a dream. For reference my toy hauler is 8500#s with a 850# tongue weight. Thank you etrailer for the best product, fast/free shipping and definitely the lowest price. 382186

I experienced no sway problems after changing to the Equal-i-zer hitch. I pull a 30 foot travel trailer with a 1200 lbs TW. My original 2500 Dodge Ram had air bags.

I received my Equal-I-zer hitch in just a couple days through etrailer.com. They also had the best price I have seen for this hitch. I had the same hitch several years ago for towing a toyhauler. I let it go with the toyhauler when I sold it because we purchased a 5th wheel toyhauler. Well we have gone full circle and purchased another tag toyhauler. After some research I see the Equal-I-zer is still the top rated weight distribution hitch so it was an easy decision to buy it again. 339702

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


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.

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

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

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

  • How to Decrease Sag on 2016 Ram 1500 When Towing
  • A Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System is a great way to reduce sag on your 2016 Ram 1500. They're easy to install without any drilling by replacing the factory bump stop. If your Ram is a Regular Cab, you will need # TDR1500DS. If you have the Crew or Quad cab, then you'll need # TDR1500DQ. I've included an installation video on a 2014 Ram which is a very similar process to yours. The best way to reduce sag is with a weight distribution system. A weight distribution system...

  • Best Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System for a Trailer with +1,000 Lbs Tongue Weight
  • For your travel trailer with 1,058 lbs of tongue weight I would absolutely go with the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System 14K part # EQ37140ET which is rated for 1,000-1,400 lbs of tongue weight. The reason for this is because the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system includes both that of the loaded ready to tow trailer but also that of the cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. This option will allow for far more room to add weight should you choose...

  • Towing Capacity of 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4WD
  • On page 4-65 of the online owner's manual for the 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4WD the towing capacities for the two axle ratios are listed. If you have the 3.42 axle then the maximum trailer weight is 7100-lbs. If you have the 4.10 axle then the maximum trailer weight is listed as 8000-lbs. I suggest you review your own printed owner's manual to confirm your truck's towing capacity. Clearly your trailer's maximum gross vehicle weight (GVWR) of 8810-lbs exceeds that of the Avalanche...

  • Upgrading a 12K Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System to a 14K
  • There area few differences between the 1,200 and 1,400 pound Equal-I-zer systems. The heads are different and the spring bars are different. If your tongue weight is over 1,200 pound then the 1,200 pound system is not rated high enough. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle....

  • Parts Needed to Convert Equal-I-Zer System to 1,400 lb Tongue Weight System
  • The difference is the spring bars of the systems and the amount of weight they are designed for in tongue weight. So if you replaced the spring bars of your current system with the part # EQ90-01-1499 you'd have a 1,400 lb system like what you need. You also have to swap head out too though so you'd also need # EQ90-02-1400.

  • Towing Capacity of 2007 GMC Yukon XL and Recommended Weight Distribution System
  • Your pictures didn't come through so I looked up information on your 2007 GMC Yukon XL and the Jay Flight 242BHSW. Also, you didn't mention the trailer's model year so I used current specs which list its GVWR at 7,000 pounds. If your trailer's GVWR is dramatically different let me know. Finally, if you would like to send me your pictures directly you can reply with them. From my research your Yukon XL can tow between 4,200 pounds to 9,700 pounds. The exact capacity of yours depends...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Keystone Sprinter 37 Foot Travel Trailer and 2015 Ram 2500
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, it is key to know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. To this tongue weight you will also need to add the weight of any cargo carrier behind the rear axle in the bed of your 2015 Ram 2500. Once you know the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer, it will be easier to choose a properly rated weight distribution system. Typically, you will want your trailer's tongue weight near the mid-to-upper end of the weight...

  • How to Select Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 36-Foot 9000-lb Travel Trailer
  • Friction bar anti-sway systems work better on smaller and lighter trailers although doubling up with two units can work satisfactorily with some longer trailers. Still, the performance of an integrated weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system will beat simple friction units any day of the week. I suggest you first install a properly-rated WD/SC system, before making mods to your truck's suspension, since you may find that you do not need the Superspring kit at all. The key to...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 2018 Grand Design Reflection 315 RLTS Travel Trailer
  • Sometimes just use of new spring bars can update a weight distribution hitch to match the tongue weight (TW) of a new trailer, but in the case of your Equal-I-zer system, part # EQ37140ET, the highest-rated bars are the 1400-lb set # EQ90-01-1499 that you now have. I noticed the various trailer specs you provided seemed not to match up; the dry tongue weight of 1400-lbs that you quoted seemed high for a trailer with a GVWR of 10995-lbs. I checked the specs for the 315 RLTS on the Grand...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-150 5.0 Towing 9000 lb Trailer
  • The trailer weight a 2016 Ford F-150 with a 5.0 liter engine can tow ranges from 8,300 lbs to 11,000 lbs depending on rear end gear size and bed/cab length. Basically as long as your rear end gears are 3.73 you are definitely fine, if they are 3.55 then there's a good chance but the bed length and cab style plays a big factor, and there's even a small chance if the gears are 3.31. Check out the chart I attached. The Equalizer System part # EQ37140ET that you mentioned would be a great...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution & Hitch Extender to Towing a Camper and Trailer with 2015 Chevy 3500
  • For your situation, I cannot recommend you use a hitch extender like # RP11004 and a longer weight distribution shank, but I do have a couple solutions for you. A hitch extender like # RP11004, will not be able to support the weight of your trailer and weight distribution system. This extender maxes out at 650lbs TW when used with a weight distribution system which we have figured your trailer alone will have max 600-900lbs when loaded and you have to account for the weight of the system...

  • Best Weight Distribution System for C-Channel Trailer Frames
  • The Curt MV Weight Distribution System part # C17057 is not ideal for c-channel trailer frames. You could still use this system on your trailer but you would want to weld steel places on the frame rails where the frame brackets of the Curt MV sit. A better option for you would be to use a system that clamps around both sides of the frame like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System part # EQ37140ET. The Equal-i-zer system works with trailers that have a total tongue weight (TTW)...

  • Using A Weight Distribution System With Rear Suspension Enhancements
  • The best way to reduce vehicle sag and trailer sway would entail the use of a weight distribution system. A weight distribution system works by distributing the weight on the rear axle of the tow vehicle across the entire platform. This will allow for a level towing surface, in turn providing a safe haul. Using a friction bar design, the downward force applied to the trailer's tongue will minimizes trailer sway in one of two ways. The first being to reduce sway as it is happening and the...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2015 Outdoor Wind River 250RDSW and 2011 Toyota Tundra
  • I did a little research and found that your 2015 Outdoor Wind River 250RDSW travel trailer has a gross weight capacity of 8,700 pounds. This would make the tongue weight 870 to 1,305 pounds. 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. Based on the...

  • 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.

  • Comparing Friction Sway Control to Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution and Sway Prevention Hitch
  • The friction style anti-sway bars like # 83660 can often help control sway with a smaller trailer like a pop-up camper but a substantial tandem axle travel trailer like your Jayco 28RLS (GVWR 8750 for the 2017 model year) will do a lot better with integrated sway prevention. Friction bars do not do anything until your trailer has already started to sway. At that point they will apply friction to try to bring the swaying trailer back into line with your tow vehicle. Integrated weight...

  • Upgrading from 1,200 lb Tongue Weight Fastway Weight Distribution to 1,400 lb Equalizer
  • Your best solution is going to be to go with the part # EQ37141ET. This is the # EQ37140ET but without the shank since you already have one. The head of your old system is not the same as the # EQ37140ET so new bars would not fit it. By the time you would piece together everything you would end up spending more than just ordering the part # EQ3714ET.

  • I looked up your 2018 Jayco Octane SL 272 (nice trailer) and I noticed a couple of things about it that could affect the fit of a weight distribution system such as # RP66074. First I noticed that on the frame behind the propane tanks it looks like there is a metal structure welded to the bottom of the frame. With the weight distribution brackets in place on the frame that extra piece on the trailer frame could make contact with the spring bars. The brackets mount 30 inches back along...

  • Choosing Weight Distribution System for 8-Inch-Tall Trailer Frame
  • The standard spring bar brackets in the Equal-i-zer 4-Point Weight Distribution Systems # EQ37140ET and # EQ37120ET will fit trailer frames up to 6-inches in height as you noted. There is no alternate part or adapter to allow these systems to be fitted on an 8-inch-tall trailer frame. For a tall trailer frame like yours the best weight distribution/sway prevention systems will be those that use bolt-on brackets and round bars that will provide better turning clearance at the nose of...

  • Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Covered A-Frame
  • The Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ95-01-5950 is designed to be used on straight-tongue trailers and would not work with your a-frame trailer. Since you said that the tongue of your a-frame is covered by the nose of the trailer you will want to consider a system that uses chains and attaches directly to the sides of the frame rails rather than clamping around them. For this, I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control part...
