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.

After following the directions to a tee, the trunnions bar would not line up or go on. I watched online videos and downloaded additional instructions and I am not doing nothing wrong. Finally adjusting the spring bar support lower then required, it worked and only the rear of the vehicle original measurements were off a 1/2". Adjusting the head assembly is still confusing. Once it's on it is all good and the trailer hauls better. 391960

Working Excellent, no problems with it. The only concern is the trunnion bars are rusting up and the support brackets has hughes signs of wear after a year or three short camping trips.

I have contacted Husky Towing and they do recommend for future reference using a little bit if traditional trailer bearing axle grease like part # L10333
UltraLube Biobased Disc/Drum Brake Wheel Bearing Grease - 16-oz Tub
$13.14
on the trunnion bars where they contact the lift brackets that are attached to your trailer. This will help to prevent future wear on your weight distribution system. I have some helpful links for your reference.

To be honest, this is my first weight distribution hitch, so I'm not sure what normal is. I've pulled trailers all my life, mostly goose-neck, fifth wheel (Semi and RV), and small tongue trailers. I recently purchased my first tongue pulled RV, a small 22ft. And while the weight distribution isn't necessary, I'm pulling it with a GMC 2500HD with a Duramax, sway control was a large part of the decision. I've seen too many travel trailers on the interstate having to drive too slow because they were fighting a side wind and the trailer would start to sway if they got up to speed. In fact since purchasing this RV, I've passed way too many idiots driving 20-30 mph under the speed limit on the interstate because there was a side wind and they didn't have a weight dist. hitch to help with sway control. In fact, anyone pulling a tongue pulled travel trailer without a weight distribution hitch is a fool, no matter the size of the RV. IMHO So not having any experience with other weight distributing hitches, what can I say about this one: Even though weight distribution wasn't a concern, this hitch does seem to work great distributing the weight between the truck and the trailer. I have no complaints at all. As for sway control, I can't give it enough stars. It pulls like it's part of the truck. I've had it over 100 mph and it follows along without a hint of sway. BTW, I was going that fast to get around some fool pulling a travel trailer too big for the truck he was using without a weight distribution hitch swaying wildly from side to side running 50 on the interstate. It was obvious I needed to get around and away from this idiot as soon and as fast as I could. Only complaint I have is making turns it seems like it binds a lot, but I have nothing to compare it too. I have found a little grease on the bottom of the bars helps. Anyway, great set up and I can highly recommend this hitch. 734596

This should be a 5 star rating because it does exactly what it was designed to do. The only reason for not giving it the 5th star was due to the design of the spring bar lift tool. When I went to use the spring bar lift tool with the trailer connected to the truck the tool would hit the ground thus not allowing me to lift the spring bar into position. I found that using a jack to lift the truck/trailer up about 3 inches allowed me to get the spring bar lift tool in position to lift the spring bar into position. If the spring bar lift tool had a curve in the handle (instead of being straight) it would allow the spring bar tool to get into position. Later on I found that using the trailer hitch jack eliminated having to use a vehicle jack to raise vehicle/trailer. FYI the vehicle (1500 Dodge Ram) and trailer (Rockwood GeoPro 19fd) are level when using the HT32216 system. 704284

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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 Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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

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.

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

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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 Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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 Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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

I am very satisfied with the Husky weight distribution hitch I purchased. My trailer weighs over 8000 lbs empty and is 36 ft long. The Husky works great even when traveling on the highway in high winds. Much better than the bar and chain type. The fact that it doubles as a set control and backing up is no problem makes it the want to go. etrailer also had the best pricing. Thank you. 397888

    The Replacement Spring Bar for Husky Towing Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitches - Qty 1 # HT31521 are designed for trailers with a total tongue weight (loaded trailer tongue weight along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle) between 801 and 1200 lbs. These bars will be far too strong for your trailer and could cause a rough ride and even some wheel bounce. I definitely do not recommend them for your trailer. My recommendation is to use a system more suited for...

  • Trailer Hitch, Brake Controller and Weight Distribution for 2019 VW Atlas
    Yes, you can use a weight distribution system with your 2019 Volkswagen Atlas and to answer your other question, the Curt Echo Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 is a fantastic option. Before that you need to start with a trailer hitch that is compatible with a weight distribution system and for that you will need the Draw-Tite # 76176. This is a 2 inch hitch with a 900 lb tongue weight capacity and 6,000 lb towing capacity; it will be a great hitch for your Atlas because not only does...

  • Replacement Spring Bars for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System to Upgrade Capacity
    The spring bars for the Husky Center Line systems, like your Husky # HT32216, are indeed interchangeable and can be replaced in order to upgrade the existing unit. For your system, you can just install the Replacement Spring Bar # HT32329, which will increase its tongue weight capacity to 800-1,200 pounds. This comes with a quantity of 1 bar, so you will need to order 2 for your system. I have attached a short video demonstration on this product for you to check out.

  • Best Weight Distribution System to Tow a 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS with a 2013 Toyota 4Runner
    A weight distribution (WD) system with sway control (SC) is always recommended when the gross weight of the loaded trailer is at least half of the weight of the tow vehicle. Since this is the case with your 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS and 2013 Toyota 4Runner I highly recommend using a WD/SC system to keep the trailer's tongue weight (TW) from negatively affecting your front axle steering and braking performance. To determine the best WD/SC for your towing setup you first need to...

  • Difference Between Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32215 and # HT32216
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Systems # HT32216 and # HT32215 referenced in your question are indeed identical except for the hitch ball size that is included. The # HT32216 includes the adjustable shank and compatible 2-5/16 inch torqued hitch ball, while the # HT32215 includes the shank and a torqued 2 inch hitch ball. The difference in price is simply based on demand and the manufacturer's listing. When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important factor...

  • Replacement Components for Husky Weight Distribution System
    If you're just looking to replace the retaining pin, you can get the pins for Husky systems by themselves, # HT32335. These are compatible with Husky Center Line systems # HT32215, # HT32216, # HT32217, and # HT32218. The spring bars are a bit more model-specific. For models 31423 and 31428, you need # HT31521. For model # HT32217, you need # HT32330. For model # HT32218, you need # HT32329. For models 31425 and 31513, you need # HT31522. Husky has had a few different...

  • 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. Now, you may not think that because you have a light trailer that trailer...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2018 Coleman Lantern Trailer
    The Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller # 3430001 will work well for your trailer. The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # HT32216 is a great option with the brackets mounted 28-1/2" - 30-1/2" from the center of ball socket on coupler not the end of the coupler. This system will work with total tongue weights of 400-600 lbs. That total tongue weight is the completely loaded trailer tongue weight along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2018 Honda Pilot....

  • Tongue Weight Scale for Determining Correct Weight Distribution Spring Bars
    For a travel trailer with a gross weight rating (GVWR) of 4000-lbs the actual tongue weight (TW) when it is properly loaded should be in the 12 to 14-percent range, or roughly 480-lbs to 560-lbs. A weight distribution hitch that is rated for 800 to 1200-lbs of loaded tongue weight is simply too stiff for your trailer's weight; this is why the ride quality is suffering. The ideal situation is that your total fully-loaded TW (including the weight of any cargo in the Colorado that sits...

  • Hitch Ball Height Adjustment for 4 Inch Drop When Using Weight Distribution System
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # HT32215 will not have the drop you need to work with your trailer. Weight distribution systems determine drop in the same way as ball mounts, so you will need a longer weight distribution system shank. I recommend the Husky Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 9-3/4" Long - 5 Holes - 14K # HT30859. If you need the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball versus the 2 inch diameter hitch ball, then...

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for a 2013 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS
    I will be happy to help you out and clear up some things for you regarding weight distribution. The general rule of thumb is that if the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, weighs at least half of the 4Runner's weight then you should use weight distribution. Based on the weight of your 2015 Forest River Wolf Pup 16BHS and 4Runner I do recommend using a weight distribution system. Weight distribution is a good idea in general because it not only helps redistribute the trailer tongue...

  • How to Select Weight Distribution/Sway Control Hitch for Rockwood Camper Trailer
    There are specific towing conditions that tend to justify use of a trailer weight distribution and/or sway control system. Those include when the trailer weighs more than half the weight of the tow vehicle and of course when there is enough trailer sway to get your attention. The linked article will provide further explanation about when these systems are appropriate. The simple friction-style anti-sway bars like # 83660 can help a bit with limiting trailer sway and they are much more...

  • Replacement Parts for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
    It definitely sounds like something got bent or otherwise knocked out of place causing the bar to come off. You can adjust the frame brackets on a Husky Center Line Weight Distribution system such as # HT32216 to compensate for the one side being off. But I strongly urge you to correct the issue by replacing the damaged parts. The system will not be effective otherwise and presents a potential safety hazard should the system fail. You can replace the frame brackets using # HT32333 for...

  • Weight Distribution System for a Winnebago Minnie Winnie with 3,500 Lb GVWR
    For your Winnebago Minnie Winnie, I highly recommend the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32216 which is currently my favorite weight distribution system on the market due to how well it stacks up against the competition but for only a fraction of the cost. The Center Line has the perfect weight range for your total tongue weight. If you are under by 50-100 lbs or so then this will not be an issue at all you just don't want to exceed the maximum weight rating....

  • Fit and Compatibility of Husky Centerline TS Weight Distribution System
    Don't worry, I can help explain how to find the right weight distribution system for you. First thing to know is to choose the right weight distribution it will be based on loaded tongue weight, which is typically between 10-15 percent of the trailer and anything in addition to that loaded behind the rear axle. It's important that you fall within the middle of the loaded tongue weight capacity for best support. Based on your GVW that puts you at anywhere from 387-708lbs. The Husky...

  • Could Husky Weight Distribution System HT32216 Work on Trailer that Weighs 3,300 to 3,500 lbs
    If your tongue weight ended up being above 400 lbs and below 600 lbs the Husky Weight Distribution System part # HT32216 would be a great option. If instead it was lower than 400 the Equalizer part # EQ37040ET that you also referenced would be a great option.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Riverside Retro 177SE
    If your loaded tongue weight is 420 to 460 lbs the Husky weight distribution system part # HT32216 that you referenced would be a great choice as it has a tongue weight range of 400 to 600 lbs. This is a great system that will work well with your trailer. Only other option I'd recommend over this one is the Reese Strait Line part # RP66082 which has a tongue weight range of 200 to 600 lbs and also features only sway control that works to fight sway before it starts. Unlike the Husky...

  • Can Husky Weight Distribution System be Used on Trailer Frame with 3 inch Dimension
    The frame hangers of the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32216 that you referenced can fit trailer frames that are at a minimum of 2 inches wide and a max of 8 inches tall. If you have 3 inches in either height or width the brackets would easily fit. Since you didn't specify which measurement referred to 3 inches that's about as specific as I can be. For trailer frames that are I-beam we've recommended people have the frame boxed so if you had to modify the frame you'd...

  • Can You Add Heavier Spring Bars to the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Systems

You will need a quantity of two, one for each side. As you mentioned the system is the same except for the spring bars therefore the new spring bars will work well for you.

  • Can Spring Bar Hangers of Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System Fit 3 inch Tall Frame
    What you could do is use a spacer between the bottom of your trailer frame and the bottom bolt of the frame bracket of the Husky Centerline System part # HT32216 and you'd be good. 3 inches tall is a bit too small, but with a metal spacer you'd be fine.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for Jayco Hummingbird Towed By 2019 Toyota Highlander
    I have a solution for you, but the Curt MV Weight Distribution Hitch # C17062 is not going to be a good fit for you because it's rated for a much higher weight at 1000-lbs tongue weight and 10,000-lbs towing weight, than is required for your Jayco Hummingbird. While the towing capacity is important, the tongue weight of your trailer is equally, if not more important. With a trailer that weighs in around 3200-33000-lbs total, you can expect your tongue weight to be anywhere from 10-15% of...

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Needed for a 2015 Dodge Journey Towing a 3,500 Lb Trailer
    Absolutely, the weight of your trailer is well over half the weight of your tow vehicle which is the rule for whether or not a weight distribution system is needed. If you did not use a weight distribution system your vehicle could sag badly and effect both your braking and stability. Therefore, I highly recommend you use a weight distribution system.

    If the trailer you plan on towing weighs more than half of the weight of the tow vehicle or the tow vehicle is experiencing noticeable rear suspension sag we recommend the use of weight distribution. Your trailer weighing 3,500 lbs would be over half the weight of your Frontier so a WD system would be a great idea. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup. You should note that the weight of any cargo behind the...
