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. This distributes the weight evenly to reduce the strain on the vehicles and give you a level ride. It also improves your braking ability and allows you 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.


Dependent Sway Control

Weight Distribution Built-In Sway Control

The Husky Center Line TS is a weight distribution system that works to keep your trailer in line with your tow vehicle to help prevent sway before it begins. Most of this work is achieved in the system head, which is responsible for about 75 percent of the tension in the system. Because the Center Line TS has so much tension in the head that holds the trailer steady at the connection point rather than relying on the frame brackets to keep the trailer in line, there is less popping and shifting while you drive. This weight distribution system is also noticeably quieter than similar models, which depend mostly on the steel-on-steel friction of the spring bars in the frame brackets to prevent sway.


Center Line TS Anti-Sway Frame Brackets

The spring bars attach to the trailer frame with fixed, sturdy steel brackets. They sit on top of the brackets instead of being suspended by chains like the bars that are on traditional weight distribution systems. The chain suspensions typically allow a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. The Center Line TS brackets eliminate that unwanted movement of the spring bars to better hold your trailer in line. In addition, the Center Line TS brackets create the steel-on-steel friction discussed earlier, which chain suspension systems are incapable of doing. When each spring bar on the Center Line TS system moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket and creates friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer. So, while the Center Line TS's system head prevents most of the sway before it starts, the frame brackets create a backup system to help prevent any additional movement.


Head Tilt Adjustment

Washer-Style Head Tilt Adjustment

The Center Line TS system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage and maximize the amount of tension in the whole system. 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.


Weight Distribution Hitch Shank Attachment

Once you get the desired tilt, bolt the head onto the weight distribution shank and slide the shank into your hitch receiver. The shank has multiple bolt holes, which allow you to raise or lower the head so that you can get the hitch ball in a good position to connect with your trailer. The hitch ball comes attached and pre-torqued. The weight distribution shank is included, but a standard shank from any manufacturer will also work with this system.


Tapered, Steel Spring Bars

Trunnion-Style Spring Bar Stabilizers

The Center Line TS spring bars are made of hardened, heat-treated steel. Thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is durable and resilient to impacts. The thick, round ends of the spring bars work within the limits of the tight trunnions in the system head.


Tapered Friction Sway-Control Spring Bars

As they extend out, they taper down to flat, wide bars that sit securely on the frame brackets. The result is a system that is rigid enough to effectively distribute the weight of your trailer, while still allowing enough flex within the bars to ensure a smooth ride. Husky Center Line spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.


Attaching the Brackets and Spring Bars

The frame brackets of the Center Line TS are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp securely onto your trailer frame, and easily adjust up and down for multiple height options. Conveniently position them anywhere between 28-1/2" and 30-1/2" back from the center of the ball socket on your coupler. This helps to avoid frame-mounted objects such as gas tanks, toolboxes, generators, or battery boxes.


Center Line TS Spring Bar Lift Tool

The included spring bar lift tool is designed to make it easy to put the spring bars in place on the brackets.


Spring Bar Lift Tool Handle

The handle of the tool is round instead of flat for a more comfortable grip as you lift the bars. On the opposite end of the lift tool is a square cutout that can be used to tighten the outer bolts of the frame brackets.


L-Shaped Spring Bar Retaining Pin

Once you position the spring bars onto the brackets, each bar is secured with a removable L-pin. This pin is tethered to the bracket so that you won't lose it. Each Center Line TS bracket has built-in pegs near the end of the platform that help to hold the spring bar in place so that the L-pin doesn't have to. These pegs also act as a buffer between the spring bar and L-pin to limit any shifting and rattling. This also keeps the spring bars from rubbing against the L-pins, which could cause them to wear down and develop sharp edges.


Low Maintenance

Steel Trunnion Bearing Bolts

The system head is made of 2 pieces that come apart for easy maintenance. The trunnion hex bolts come lubricated and can be greased occasionally as needed. After 500 miles, you should check the torque on the trunnion hex bolts and the shank bolts to keep the system operating effectively.

Video Transcript for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Manufacturer Demo

Hooking up a conventional trailer can introduce several forces to make things uncomfortable for the driver. The weight of the trailer tongue concentrated on the hitch ball not only lowers the rear of the truck it actually raises the front of the truck creating handling and steering problems. In addition to these vertical challenges cross winds and truck traffic also put lateral forces into play. Add some curvy roads or truck ruts, and you've got your hands full. What's needed is a trailer hitch system that can handle down forces through weight distribution and handle lateral forces with sway control. Husky Center Line TS hitch system does both in a very light, compact system that is remarkably quiet.

Husky's engineers had several goals in mind when they designed the TS. To make the product both strong and light, Husky's hitch builders forged a single piece top plate of 1035 steel which is a super strong material with excellent fatigue property. The top plate is strongly complemented with trunnions of hardened 1045 steel. The round straight spring bars are designed to give a superior fit and appearance. The tighter tolerances allow the TS to immediately react to sway conditions. The head tapered spring bars and lift brackets we're all designed to work together to promote a stable, smooth ride. You've heard why the Center Line TS is smooth, stable, and strong, but it's what you don't hear that may be the best feature of all because Husky's engineers built quiet into the system from the very start.

Rather than concentrating anti-sway resistance into a small area, they added clamping forces to the trunnion mounts and used it in conjunction with limited bar-to-bracket friction to create just the right amount of quiet sway resistance. No lubrication is required. The hitch ball comes already attached, and no special tools are required for assembling the other components. The included lift tool can load and unload spring bars and also tighten the lift bracket bolts. The universal easy adjustment frame brackets are easy to install and simple to adjust. The included L-pins are tethered so you won't loose them.

The trunnion-style spring bars are matched to popular weight ranges. The Center Line TS provides excellent weight distribution with sway control in a design that is light, compact, and quiet with superior ground clearance and exceptional value.

Install on this was fairly straight forward. The included shank did not have enough drop for my application but my truck is lifted a little bit so I don't fault Husky, I've gone about 15-20 miles on the hitch and it is a nice unit, quiet, works well and being able to reverse is very convenient. Will report back after more miles but so far so good 619425

Warning that the installation manual for the HT32215 has changed. Husky now has printed on the front of the manual (not the electronic version linked from eTrailer.com's website): "This product only fits trailer frames that are 4", 5", 6", 7" & 8" tall." In my extensive pre-purchase research, I did not uncover this fact and eTrailer was not aware of the manufacturer's limitations either...until the product was delivered and I looked at the delivered manual. It should also be noted that the eTrailer.com web listing for this hitch contains information that indicate both 2" and in another location 2 5/16" hitch ball comes with the hitch. The 32215 comes with the 2" ball. However, while I never installed the hitch, I did partially unpack it and the materials are all heavy duty, finish looks excellent, and I am fairly confident it would have performed well if it were not for the fact that my trailer frame was not tall enough. eTrailer itself had excellent customer service. They price matched (plus 10%) when I found the exact same hitch on another site for a lower price with no hassle at all. Plus when I discovered the issue with the hitch not fitting my trailer they discussed with me in detail, agreed to return the hitch, and helped me source one that would better fit my needs. I assume the refund process for the husky will go smoothly and I will have the opportunity to write a good review of both the new hitch and another eTrailer good news story shortly. So, -1 star for lack of clarify of minimum trailer frame height (systemic site wide) and the contradictory information regarding hitch ball size. Otherwise, looked like a good product and excellent customer support! 491862

The hitch was easy to install and is easy to work with. Sometimes the site angle makes it hard to get the sway bars in place since you need to raise the trailer and tow vehicle to install them. Just wait to install bars till you get to a level spot. 772732

This hitch definitely helped with both sway and load leveling. It was pretty nerve racking bringing the camper home using just a regular hitch because of the sway. Before, the truck bumper dropped over 3" when connecting the trailer but with the new hitch, it was well under an inch. Plus the camper is within a quarter inch of level while being towed. As for stability, I can still feel the camper back there but the sway was almost completely eliminated. Also, it's no problem to back up the camper without removing the bars and I didn't notice a lot of noise. All in all, the hitch performed as well as I had hoped and it didn't break the bank to purchase it. 647220

etrailer service was very fast, received the hitch within 3 days. Hitch is very well made and looks quite strong. Installation took about 3 hours, which included multiple adjustments to fine tune the level of my tow vehicle and trailer. Instructions could have included some more info in this regard. I have not towed my trailer yet so cannot comment on performance. I have a 2018 R Pod trailer (3800# gross wt) towing with a 2013 Honda Pilot (4500# tow rating). 644060

What a delight. Installed the Huskly WD hitch in 2 hrs, with a few adjustments to get the setup correct. Today was first trial run, winds blowing at 15-25 and the truck reacted to wind, but trailer was steady. No more tail wagging, no more semi blows. Great Hitch and does more than advertised. 627730

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


The weight distribution and sway control work great and have held up well (over 6,000 miles on it). I was not prepared for how loud this hitch is. I have set it up different ways and it still pops and bangs every time I turn. So much so that people will come up to me and tell me the trailer was making a lot of noise. Without the bars it's a quite ride 581565


Comments
Over all it has been great. It has stopped the trailer from swaying, leveled the truck and trailer when loaded, and stopped the porpoising. The only down side I have is it is louder than I thought it would be. It pops and bangs so loud that its embarrassing to drive through my neighborhood at night

Thank you very much for the review, and I'm glad to hear that this weight distribution system is helping you to tow safely! The noise caused by metal-on-metal friction can be loud and is an unfortunate side-effect of weight distribution systems. I know it's not ideal, but you might consider removing the arms from the brackets prior to entering your neighborhood if you want to avoid the extra noise at night since you'll be moving slower through a neighborhood.

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a great hitch assembly. I bought the heaviest rating even tho my trailer is only 5000 lbs. It is so stable when towing it gives me great confidence...no sway AT ALL. It creaks when making sharp turns, but that is simply the friction and torque of the anti-sway bars moving in the brackets. I get some looks in campgrounds when turning...doesn’t bother me a bit. If I decide to upgrade to a heavier trailer I’m all set. Old school beliefs that you need a 5th wheel to achieve great stability is no longer valid, thanks to this heavy duty hitch. 680059

Have had for about a year. Tow 10k Toy Hauler. Works very well, happy with build quality. There is some rust on pieces that rub together/Sway bars. So gonna touch that up with paint before this camping season. Some minor sway still when I have UTV loaded in rv/trailer, not sure if because of extra weight in rear end/behind trailer axles. 481393

With my 1/2 ton truck I was not very impressed with this hitches performance. I don't like using the tt electric Jack to lift the truck , still don't. Sway control not great. Now I have a one ton and and the hitch works well , no sway. Still don't like lifting truck with tt electric jack. Waiting for a jack failure as I feel I'm just asking for it. Overall I wish I had my old Reese back . The husky is showing wear at one year old . My Reese was 10 yrs old and didn't look like it was hardly used 337756

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I haven't had a chance to use it much other than taking the trailer from where we bought it to where we store it, but it was pretty quick and easy to setup. Only took about 30 min or so without really knowing what I was doing to get it all hooked up. Once hooked up, my 1500 was able to pull the 31' camper without too much issue. While I only got going 45-50 mph, I didn't have any issues with swaying or anything and was able to keep everything hooked up while trying to squeeze it into the parking spot at the storage place, which made doing that less painful. 530140

Im glad that i received this opportunity. I am cery disappointed with the husky hitch that i purchased and their customer service. I noticed that after only using the hitch once after proper setup, i found the frame brackets that bars slide on now have wear grooves in them. I contacted husky and they had me complete a setup form as well as submit photos only to tell me this is normal wear which i feel it isnt. They also told me to apply grease to this area to limit the friction wear. If and when they wear completely through then i am to contact them for warranty which i feel is unsafe because if they wear through while im towing my trailerSo at this point i feel that 562872

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I've used this hitch for about a year now, and it is everything the description says it is. The instructions are very complete and lead you through all the steps for correct assembly. I discovered that the tension required to control the sway for my trailer was less than I imagined. But, that will vary based on your trailer weight. Hooking up is much easier and less problematic than I thought it would be, and goes very quickly after some repitition. The ONLY off-putting thing in the entire process is the required torque setting for the bolts for the trunion head. [specs] !!!!!!!!!! I took mine to my local mechanic and we managed to torque them with his impact wrench, as mine wouldn't reach the required torque. That is actually a minor thing, because once it's set, you won't be resetting it/redoing it unless something goes wrong. Just be aware of it! I can back up, tow more quietly than my chain type, and it just works!! 359273

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I finally decided to buy a camper for the family. The camper salesmen recommended a weight distribution hitch w/ sway control. I have not pulled anything 30 ft long so I began to study up. That's when I found etrailer. I read reviews and decided on the Husky Trunnion 12000 lb unit. The website was easy to order thru and I selected the 12000 lb. unit. Problem is, I was sent the 600 - 800 lb trunnion arms. I called etrailer and talked to Janice A. I explained the situation to her and she confirmed that I had in fact ordered the right system.....she stated that etrailer sent the wrong unit. She agreed to send new trunnion arms overnight to me with return information for the return of the wrong arms to etrailer. The part she sent arrived as discussed and were correct...and easy replacement. Best of all, I didn't miss a weekend camping. Janice A. was great and is an asset to her company. I will have to credit etrailer as well for outstanding service. Happy Customer....Highly recommend etrailer. 420645

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I have had this product for a year. I really like the quality. It is well made and a great value. Here are some considerations. I would recommend an electric jack. You really have to crank your trailer and truck up in the air to get it high enough to put on your bars. I find engaging/disengaging the sway bars with the tool provided a bit unnerving and overly complex. I watched the youtube videos from Husky on how to do it, but found some user videos that seemed to have a easier method that appears to be safer. I found the initial setup and configuration for this hitch a huge pain. I purchased a new travel trailer from a dealer that was also a husky dealer. They did the install for me. It was not done correctly and I had huge sway problems. I followed the instructions provided, and had to make further adjustments. I am still not fully satisfied with the sway control. I think it is safe and working, but was hoping it would be better. I have found some issues to be aware of. The pins that hold the head of the sway bar into the hitch have a wire loop that holds the pin in place. I have had them come unhooked and almost lost my sway bar. They are kind of flimsy. I now install the pin so the wire catch goes to the toward the inside and check it all the time. I still have them come undone, but they seem to have less risk of coming out. I am monitoring, and will probably end up figuring out a different solution. There is also an issue with the cotter keys that secures the L shaped bracket for the end of the sway bars. I have sheared off 3 in a year, and have to carry extras. I find this occurs when going over dips in the road or uneven parking lots. Would I recommend this hitch, yes..... and....see above.... and.... it is technically challenging to use over some of the others I have used. 575204

I bought this distribution hitch a year ago and it has been the best investment I've made with regards to my RV. Prior to installing the hitch, towing the camper with even the slightest wind was a nightmare. Now I only experience sway on the rarest of occasions and even then it is only slight. I highly recommend this product. 401016

  • Pro and Cons of Air Bags Versus a Weight Distribution System for a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler
    For your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler, I recommend using a weight distribution system, the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution part # HT32215 for 2" hitch ball or part # HT32216 for 2-5/16" hitch ball. The main reason I recommend a weight distribution system over airbags like the Air Lift AirLift 1000 Air Helper Springs for Coil Springs part # AL60829 is because the weight distribution system has integrated sway control.

    Typically tongue weight for a travel trailer is right at 10 percent of the total trailer weight and sometimes up to 15 percent. So for a 4,000 lb trailer you'd most likely have a 400 lb tongue weight but could possibly have a 600 lb tongue weight. The great news is that the Husky Centerline kit part # HT32215 has a tongue weight range of 400 to 600 lbs just like what you'd need so this kit would work well for you. If you can find a scale near you for measuring the weights of vehicle...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
    For your application you can use the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter # RP3280 which works with lift brackets from all manufacturers that mount approximately 30" back from hitch ball. Since your Husky Center Line # HT32215 falls within that category and is rated for 6K (where the adapter is rated for 7.5K) this is the perfect option for you.

  • Recommended Sway Control System for a Little Guy Mini Max Trailer
    The friction type sway bar that you are using now is a good cost effective solution to help combat trailer sway but they do require frequent adjustments and can wear out over time which sounds like what is happening to yours. The best upgrade we have for this is a weight distribution system with integrated sway control. I know you may not think you need a distribution system if you aren't already using one but the sway control built-into these systems are the most advanced and work the...

  • Will the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution HT32215 Work with a 3,500 GVWR Trailer
    Yes, the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution part # HT32215 would be perfect for a trailer with a GVWR of 3,500 lbs. This system will accommodate the trailer when empty or fully loaded, it even gives you a bit of room for the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle which gets added to the total tongue weight figure. I actually really like the Husky Center Line because there aren't many better options for the money.

  • Is It Normal for the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System To Make Noise While Turning
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32215 uses friction to help level the tow vehicle and then reduce/prevent trailer sway. Therefore, it is not uncommon for there to be noise while turning. That is more or less just the nature of these types of systems. If the spring bars are parallel to the trailer frame, the system is not too tight.

  • Are Special Tools Required To Install Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System?
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # HT32215 is a 4 point anti-sway system. The bars have metal on metal friction at the head as well as at the brackets on each side. The hitch ball comes pre-installed and torqued, so you do not need high end tools or special sockets to install. The system will require a basic torque wrench and standard sockets for installation.

  • What are the Differences Between Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
    Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. Round bars...

  • Is a Sway Bar/Weight Distribution System Needed for a Chevrolet Colorado Towing a Camper
    Yes, it is always a good idea to use a weight distribution system especially one with integrated sway control when pulling a camper who's weight is more than half that of the tow vehicle's which is the rule we use. Furthermore, you will soon come to find out if you have not already is that the smaller camper trailers are usually the ones with sway problems.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2019 Jayco 12UD with 240 lbs of Tongue Weight
    If you use a weight distribution system that's rated too high for the tongue weight of a camper you won't damage anything but you will have a very harsh ride quality. It would be so harsh you'd end up not wanting to use the system at all. The # HT32215 has a tongue weight range of 400-600 lb which is much too high for your trailer that has a TW of 240 lbs. A much better solution would be the Reese Steadi-Flex part # 66557 which has a tongue weight range of up to 400 lbs and has friction...

    Check to see if your vehicle has a higher capacity when used with weight distribution as that is often times the case. If you are absolutely sure your tongue weight would never exceed 590 lbs when load the Husky Kit part # HT32215 would work but since you are going to load it with additional weight and tongue weight also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle you are going to need a higher rated system. Instead the part # HT32217 would be a better choice has it has...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a Intech Explore Trailer with Toyota Highlander Vehicle
    I do recommend you use a weight distribution system on the Intech Explore Travel Trailer while towing with your 2018 Toyota Highlander. The reason for this is because the weight of the trailer will be over half the weight of the vehicle which is the rule we use for determining whether or not a system is needed. The tongue weight as you mentioned could also cause the vehicle to sag if not for a weight distribution system and this sag really will have a negative impact on the vehicle's braking....

  • Why Would Weight Distribution System Not Remove all Sag from Tow Vehicle When Set Up

You said you have the Husky Centerline part # HT32215 which has a tongue weight range of 400 to 600 lbs. The next highest rated system is the part # HT32217 which has a tongue weight range...

  • Can my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser Tow a 3000 lb Pontoon Boat
    According to what I was able to find in my research, the towing capacity for the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser is 5000-lbs, so you are able to tow a 3000-lb boat without any issue. With that being said, you should always consult your owner's manual to confirm this towing capacity. When towing a load that is more than 1/2 of the total weight on your tow vehicle, it's usually a good idea to tow with a weight distribution hitch. This is going to help distribute the weight more evenly across the...

  • Do I Need a Weight Distribution System Towing An R-Pod With a 2019 Toyota Highlander
    The rule we use for determining whether or not a weight distribution system is required is that if the weight of the loaded trailer exceeds half of the weight of the vehicle then the use of a weight distribution system is recommended. The weight of your trailer is over half the weight of your vehicle so yes I do recommend a weight distribution system.

  • Troubleshooting Bounce at Front of Tow Vehicle with Husky Weight Distribution System
    It sounds like your existing Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32215 either just needs to be adjusted a bit more or its 400 to 600 pound tongue weight capacity is actually a bit under-rated for your setup. The bounce you're experiencing during travel is likely the result of the front of the Enclave sitting higher than the rear with the trailer connected. If you notice that the rear fender of your Enclave is sitting lower than the front fender with the trailer attached...

  • Installation of Hitch Ball on Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System Head

  • Determining Which Husky Spring Bars To Use With 7,000 Lb Trailer
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32215 has spring bars rated for tongue weights between 400-600 lbs. An option is to try to keep your tongue weight around 600 when the trailer is loaded so you don't overload the spring bars. If they are overloaded they basically won't distribute the weight like they should. If you think you can keep your loaded tongue weight at 600 then you can keep your current spring bars.
