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.

This Husky weight distributing hitch replaced an older unit of a different brand that I could no longer adequately adjust, i.e. it was now beyond the capability of the unit. The new unit is installed and works great, though it is adjusted almost to the maximum of its capability. The support from etrailer.com was friendly, very helpful and the hitch system arrived one day earlier than initially projected. 277284

The customer service at etrailer is fantastic...my original order was not in stock, so they called me and suggested this product at no extra charge, shipping was quick. The trailer I use this on is 23' 6,000 lb (loaded) travel trailer. So far, I used it on 2 long trips (6,000 miles total + several smaller trips in between) and absolutely love it. I can back up with no problem with the weight distribtution connected, it is fairly easy to install, takes some practice to disconnect (I don't have an electric tongue jack), the ball is bolted on but I had no issues with it, all the components are super heavy duty, the only complaint I have are the hangers where the rods sit...rubs metal on metal...no issues so far though, I just add some grease. Without this distribution system, i could feel the trailer sway in high winds and trucks passing...which made me nervous. Now, with this distribution system, it feels rock solid... there was some sway when we were in the high desert of Idaho with winds at about 30 mph (according to weather radio). No issues going down long steep winding grades...the steepest being 8%. 409211

Talked to Preston about what I needed to tow a trailer that has a lot of sway. He is very informed about his products. The way my trailer is designed we might of had some problems of clearance with the antisway bars. We figured that the bars should clear. I was wanting a antisway hitch that was to heavy for what we are towing. But Preston’s knowledge directed me to a lighter hitch that would work better for the weights we are pulling. And I have already received my hitch. Great job Preston. Thank you for all your help. You are a credit to yourself. Good job E trailer. Preston if you need a job in Springfield ILLinois give me a call. My business can use a person like you. Young men like you will keep America Great Thanks. Mike 606144

After a year I can say that I have been pleased with this setup. Previously had that cheap round bar and chain system that camper dealers seem to go to. The spring pin failed while in transit and dropped the bar. Used that system for 4 years. It was always noisy. These bars are pin secured, can't drop out. It's very quiet compared to my old system (except for rainy days... she does groan when wet). I only wish there was some way to touch up the finish. 597892

I have used this particular weight distributing hitch on two different trailers. On both it worked or is working very well.

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 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

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

I just returned from a 500 mile round trip on interstate, state, and county roads across three state towing a 700 lb. tongue weight, 8000 lb GVW, 30' RV with a 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4x4. One way without the Husky, the way back with the Husky. I will never pull a trailer again without my Husky! The truck was level and noticeably more stable on all road surfaces and conditions. 511244

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'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 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


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

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

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


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


Comments

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
$11.50
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.

Review from a similar Husky Center Line in Weight Distribution


I love this weight distribution system! I have a F150 (stock rear springs/hitch) which is pulling a 7'x16' enclosed aluminum trailer, which probably weights close to 5,000-6,000 lbs depending on how much I load it. Without this system, the trailer was tongue heavy and the truck had a noticeable rearward lean, handled poorly, etc. With this system, the truck sits within 1/2" level (the system is incredibly easy to adjust to achieve proper leveling depending on weight/loading), and I just got back from driving 1000+ miles towing the trailer, and the driving was incredibly easy compared to without this system. Those miles included highway, poorly paved highway, dirt roads, dirt roads with bad spring ruts/pot holes, tight parking lots, windy conditions etc. This system performed in all of them. Passing semis or vice versa? No sway whatsoever. There were even some nasty bumps at highway speeds (70mph) which induced some slight trailer wobble, which this system corrected right away. This system also allowed for tight turns, both in drive and reverse. The thing is quiet too! Detaching the system is very easy as well when the trailer is not in use. The torsion bars easily disconnect from the trailer brackets via the tool provided, and once off, you only have to remove the pin from the hitch side to remove the torsion bar. That way you don't have to carry the weight of the full system all at once back to the garage. All in all, I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a weight distribution / sway control system. 245991

Picked up my new trailer Yesterday at Paul Everts RV in Fresno, CA. They installed my new HUSKY Center Line Weight Distribution System that eTrailer delivered to me in a very efficient timely fashion. Excellent ride! Pictured see my customer care team.

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

The HT32218 weight distribution system works great and was easy to install. I installed it on a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 and I pull a 2017 trailer, length 31', tongue load 700 lbs. Also, I added the Timbren Suspension Enhancement hollow rubber springs which took the rear bounce away. Between the the two systems I have a good level ride, no bounce and very little sway (mostly from tractor trailers passing on the highway.) 479387

First off all hat's off to ETrailer for the great customer service! Ordered my Husky product and they matched an online price that I found and gave me a credit and the 10% of the difference. Shipped quickly and arrived just in time to get installed and use. Took a while to get it installed and adjusted properly, but once it was adjusted it worked great. I already have a few hundred miles on the hitch pulling my trailer and have to say I love it! I bought this to replace my old chain style WD hitch and this Husky product is awesome with the built in sway control. Very easy to use as it is a "set it and forget it" setup. My old chain style was always a pain to get adjusted correctly and it seemed to be different everytime. This Husky TS hitch hooks up the same everytime. Also very quiet and no problems backing up with it being hooked up. My last trip was pretty windy and the TS did a great job keeping the sway down. If you are having second thoughts on purchasing this product, I say go for it. You won't regret it! 292601

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

Easy to install and adjust. After a little tweaking, 28ft trailer tracks straight down the road. Drove through a windy downpour last fall and it performed like a champ. I did a lot of research before purchasing and this was the best bang for the buck. 378837

No sway on the hwy. No noise.One thing to avoid is sharp angles when backing up into tihgt park spots. Disconect the sway bars if you need to but make sure they dont get in your way:).The ball part is reasonable heavy so prepare to use some muscle and if you keep your hitch like I do ( in storage, not on the truck) it will stay beautifuly steeley-shiny like the day you unboxed it.Overall a great hitch. Does the job like it supposed to do. 368048

I use this distribution/anti-sway hitch every time I pull my tt. Wouldn't leave home without it. It just make pulling the trailer more comfortable for me and my wife. Even in the wind the tail swing is virtually eliminated. The only complaint I have is it's a little noisy, but I can live with that. I give it 4 out of 5 just because of the noise. Other than that I'd give it a 5. 450080

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

This hitch and stabilizer is everything I expected it to be. I recieved it with free delivery in 2 days. I would recommend etrailer.com to anyone in the market for a hitch/stabilizer system. A side note about the delivery. The package was dropped off while I was not at home. When I got home the crate was badly damaged. However due to the durability of the materials the hitch us made of, there wasn't even a scratch on it. In my opinion the damaged crate is the result of handling by the delivery company, not etrailers. 657849

Good product and good service/quick shipping and fairly easy to install. Just took our first trip of 500 miles with our 33ft RV using it and noticed a good difference on how much more lite it felt. Glad we bought it. Thanks for selling it to us - Dale 654986

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

We receive our sway / weight distribution bars quick. Ordered them Monday got them Thursday. Took a little over two hours to put them on.

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

Relatively easy to assemble the first time through. Connect & disconnect is quick and simple. It does a great job leveling the load and limiting sway. I had to adjust the spring load after a shakedown run, but after the adjustment, it's been great. 616179

It sounds like you will be right at around 800 lbs fully loaded (both vehicle and trailer) which puts you right in the middle of the 800 lb part # HT32217 and 1,200 lb system.

Also, when calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you also have to add in any weight behind the rear axle of the truck. So for example if you had 100 pounds of gear behind the rear axle the tongue weight would be 780 to 1,120 pounds using...

  • The Reese # RP54970 weight distribution shank would be 4-1/2 inches longer than the 7-3/4 inch long shank that was included with your Husky Centerline weight distribution kit. If that won't give enough clearance, use the # EQ90-02-4500 from Equal-I-zer that is 18 inches long. Both the shanks I recommended have hole spacing of 1-1/4 inch, measured center to center which should be the same as your old shank.
