Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your Chevrolet Silverado 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 Chevrolet Silverado and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your Chevrolet Silverado. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.

Used this for my 2013 Jayco Jayfeather camper. It's only a 17ft camper but had more tounge weight than I expected. Towing it with a 2012 Tacoma. It towed it decent before the weight dist hitch but when the truck and camper are all loaded, the truck had a pretty good lean to it and the steering wheel got a bit "light" at highway speeds. Now with the hitch its a lot better. Very glad I purchased this hitch. 271616

The hitch was easy and straightforward to install. I have not used it yet, but it has leveled my Grand Caravan's suspension. The only glitch was the shim. It was too thin and, since I did not have time to order an additional one, I killed about an hour finding a piece of scrap and making a thicker one. 193797

The weight distribution bars did not work for me. The bolts that are supposed to secure the snap-up brackets onto the trailer would not stay secured. With further tightening if the bolts, the brackets bent and deformed. The hitch itself, without bars works fine. 335404

Review from a similar Pro Series RB2 in Weight Distribution


I have ordered several items, including the round bar weight distribution kit, in three separate shipments over the past several weeks. Every item was of excellent quality, exactly as advertised, installed easily according to the convenient video instructions, and worked perfectly. I found etrailer's prices to be the best in every case, and the free shiping on my orders made them an even better bargain. Each of the shipments arrived as scheduled, and were in excellent condition. I have no doubt that I'll search etrailer first when shopping for trailer and towing accessories in the future. 23542

Review from a similar Pro Series RB2 in Weight Distribution


This hitch was exactly as discussed with, I believe, Matt. It actually shipped and was receive just as Matt had promised. Matt really helped me out A LOT in a tight situation. He went above and beyond to actually go to the warehouse and get me measurements from the hitch and actually followed through with returning a phone call that he said he would. Locally, I tried U-Haul and they were pretty well useless and did not even seem to care about helping a custome. I do plan on using ETrailer again in the future. Thank you Matt for all your help 10831

It does what it's supposed to and took maybe 20 min to put together once I got all the sockets and wrenches I needed. Word to the wise -- the large nuts and bolts for this are a size 1 1/8" (buy one socket and one wrench at that size) and if you purchase the 10,000lb ball (40090), you'll need a large adjustable wrench and a 1 7/8" socket. I've towed with and without this hitch and it made a very large difference on the weight on the rear end. 541794

The weight distribution hitch was exactly what I was looking for, and at a price lower than I expected. Plus, the shipping was free! Not only that, but I ordered it on a Sunday, and chose the free ground delivery, and it was shipped the same day with a 3-5 day shipping upgrade at no additional cost. It was at my door on Wednesday. You can't beat that! I would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone. Great company. 20495

Hi,Would you recommend the Pro Series Weight Distribution 49569 for a 2004 Surveyor Travel Trailer - 3680lb dry weight325lb dry tw, or should I go with something beefier? Being pulled with a 2008 Tundra DC 4x4 with factory tow set-up.There will be occassions where a quad will be hauled in the box of the truck.

-- comment by: Jason - 02/03/2014

That will depend on what the loaded weight of the trailer comes out to, but I can explain how to figure out what weight range you should select. Look at tongue weight first. Add up the loaded tongue weight of the trailer AND the weight of anything in the bed of the truck behind the axle. That is your tongue weight total. Select a system has at least as much, if not more, tongue capacity than your total tongue weight. If the WD system lists a tongue weight range, you want your total tongue weight to fall in the middle of that range. Of course the gross towing capacity needs to cover your total trailer weight. With the loaded trailer and the quad, I imagine the 800 would be close and it may be better to look at a 1,000 pound tongue weight system.

We received the product in record time! We had our local mechanic install the weight distribution hitch in no time (I didn't have the proper tools). If I had the proper tools I'm sure that I could have installed the hitch - especially with the extremely helpful tutorial videos on this site. We are now on our way across the country on a 1 month long road trip. Thanks etrailer! 20995

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 3000lb ECO Trailer
  • With a trailer weighing in at 3000 pounds, your tongue weight, at 10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight, will be between 300 and 450 pounds. It would be best to go with a system with a wider range. For your trailer, I recommend the Pro Series RB2 Round Bar Weight Distribution Kit with Shank, # 49568. This system has a range of 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight, perfect for your trailer. It comes with the required shank so all you would need is a properly sized ball like # 19286 (2-5/16...

Look for the GCWR, which is the gross combined weight rating. This weight represents the maximum combined weight of the truck and trailer. From that figure, subtract the GVW, the gross vehicle weight. The GVW represents...

This weight distribution and sway control system works to keep sway from starting rather than just stopping it once it begins, like other systems do.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Coleman Cheyenne Popup Camper Trailer
  • I recommend a system rated for 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight like # 49568.

I have linked some instructions for you. If you go with the Pro series kit, you would just need to use a properly sized ball like # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch.

The 2.5L versions of the RAV4 carry only a 1500-lb tow rating and are not suitable for pulling your Aliner Classic Off-Road camper.
