Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

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


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

Can't speak highly enough of eTrailer.com's customer service. I had accidentally ordered the incorrect product spec for my setup (2015 F150 towing a 8.5x20 ATC toy hauler) and they were able to get me the correct product within the same week and provided an easy process for returning the incorrect hitch. Regarding the hitch itself, installation was a breeze, though I had to get a couple new tools due to the standard sizing of the nuts bolts, rather than metric. It would be very helpful if the instructions posted online would have a required tool listing with specific sizes required so you can be prepared ahead of time. After installing the hitch and taking initial measurements, it was very easy to fine-tune to get the setup perfect. Before installing the hitch, my truck would sit nearly 1.5 inches higher up front and 3 inches lower in the back with the trailer hooked up compared to stock, with very light steering feel when going down the road. With the hitch installed and dialed in, the front sits back at the stock height and only 1.75 inches lower in the rear, creating an essentially flat ride profile, and the trailer itself is perfectly level. Riding down the road the difference in feel is amazing. Much better steering response without the "light" feeling, tracks much more planted when going down the highway, and bumps and undulations in the road surface are absorbed much more smoothly now that both the truck and the trailer are sharing the workload. 322233

Great WD hitch - Great price- Prompt Shipping. Instructions were easy to follow, worked perfectly the first time. Night and day Towing experience. 2003 Suburban towing 21' keystone Hideout 3750 lbs, with tw of 600lbs the truck has soft OEM spring set up, and sits low already. First added air shocks to get rid of the sag, but the addition of the WD hitch made all the difference, before WD had to run 140lbs of pressure just to maintain ride height, now I only run 40lbs in shocks now and she sits perfect, not to mention Steering is normal and all the jerky pushing and pulling is gone its nice and smooth now. 185252

This is the second Pro Series weight distribution hitch that I have bought from etrailer. I've used the first one for the last three years with my vintage travel trailer. As a woman who camps on her own, set up is easy and it does what it's meant to do. (Just make sure that you are on level ground and that someone shows you the correct position to insert the bar into the hitch head, otherwise it can be a bit frustrating.) I recently bought a new travel trailer for a more comfortable camping experience. I purchase a second new Pro Series so that each trailer can have their own ball and shank set-up on the head. I highly recommend the product. 757108

The system was relatively easy to install (read the instructions!). We have a Toyota Tundra which we use to tow a travel trailer. First used it with a 21 ft Micro Minnie (ca. 4,000 Lbs), and now we use it with a 27-ft Airstream, which weighs around 6000 Lbs. It makes a world of difference! The trailer tracks very well, and we have no need for additional sway control. Great investment! 564218

I recently installed a new trailer hitch on my 2002 Tundra Limited. I needed a receiver for the hitch as I intended to tow a 5000 lb boat and trailer combo. I was unsure of the drop needed for the trailer (which I had not yet seen) and felt the PS 49683 receiver was just the ticket! This setup is HEAVY DUTY! Proper height and drop setup is a breeze. Well made and should provide years of service. George from etrailer is excellent with his email communication and has kept me advised of the order status throughout the entire process from order to delivery. 541609

The only problem I encountered on the installation of the head was getting the washers on the rivet.

Will be making a two thousand mile trip beginning tomorrow, hope is all works as good as advertised. 324726

  • Do Weight Distribution Systems Reduce Trailer Sway
    Yes they will. Weight distribution without a secondary sway control feature will also work to fight sway as it distributes a portion of the trailer tongue weight up to the front axle. When a vehicle is towing a trailer and the front axle ends up too light sway can occur and a WD system can prevent this. A WD system adds friction to vehicle/trailer when it attempts to turn so in that regard acts as a friction sway control unit as well. The absolute best way to prevent sway is proper...
