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.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Weight Distribution PS49583 Review

Speaker 3: Today we're gonna be taking a look at part number PS49583. This is the Pro Series RV3 round bar weight distribution system. This part number is gonna come with the shank as well as the hitch pinning clip to get it installed in your hitch. Solid steal construction, its not hollow, that's a solid shank, all the way through, so heavy duty steal construction. Weight distribution system is gonna evenly distribute weight over the axles of your tow vehicle and trailer for stability and control. Ultimately, that creates a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. This particular systems gonna feature the round tapered spring bars.

These are gonna flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a nice controlled even ride. You can actually adjust the spring bar tension, simply by switching out the links, right here on the lift brackets. You can switch those out, that's gonna allow you to fine tune the spring bar tension. Another neat feature with this system is that you can actually adjust the head so you can achieve the desired tilt, using the traditional washer design. It's gonna come with this spacer rivet and multiple washers. Place how ever many washers you need on that rivet and then, here on the back of the head, there's gonna be a small hole for this spacer rivet to slide into.

The more tilt you need, the more washers you put on. The less tilt you need, the more washers you take off. That just goes in the back of the head. That's only gonna allow it to come up, so close, to this portion of the shank when you tighten down all your hardware. That allows you to achieve the desired tilt that you need for your particular application. Just add or remove washers from the spacer and that's all there is to that. Down here at the bottom, I do want to point out that this item does include a set screw, located there at the base.

These are gonna be called our lift brackets, these are clamp on brackets. You see here, they have the forcing right here, that will go over the frame of the trailer. Its got the large set screw in the back. Brackets are gonna be held in place with these heavy duty clips. When it comes to the shank, this is an adjustable shank, you can see its got the multi hole design. Fully welded, again, this thing is solid, nice, heavy duty construction.

When it comes too the head of the assembly, this is compatible with friction style sway control systems. That's not included with this part number, those are sold separately. But again, a lot of steal on this thing. Steal construction, its gonna have a black powder coat finish on it, it's gonna be very strong, very durable, and rust, and corrosion resistant. You're gonna have your Zerk fittings located on the ends here. That way you can lubricate to make sure that the bars can move freely inside their mounting location. That allows us to attach a grease gun on their, pump the per-per 00:03:11 grease in there, allows for easier maintenance. This right here's gonna be our snap up lever. This is gonna ease the installation by reducing lifting required by the trailer jack. That allows us to get the lift brackets up into place, even though we have the tension set. Little helpful tool right there that just adds leverage, makes installation easier, getting our brackets into the correct position. The systems gonna include everything you see here on the table. Your hardware over here is designed to get the head mounted on to the shank. I just left that separate so I can show you those components separately. Now, this does require a hitch ball that's gonna go in this portion right here. Your hitch ball is sold separately. Its gonna require an inch and a quarter diameter shank. For a two inch ball, I'd recommend part number A-90, sold here on Etrailer.com. Sold separately, that'd be a good option. For a two and five-sixteenth inch hitch ball I'd recommend part number 19286. The maximum tongue weight for this system is one thousand pounds. Maximum gross towing weight is ten thousand pounds. It is designed for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with weight distribution systems. When it comes to our shank length, that's gonna give us a measurement of twelve and half inches. Now, this can be used in either the drop or rise position. This would be our rise position, this would be our drop position. If we we're to take a measurement with it all the way installed in the rise position, that's with the head on this unit in the rise position, that'll give us a maximum rise from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of our ball platform of six and half inches. We can flip that over in the drop position and that would give us a maximum drop of an inch and a half, at the lowest setting, from the top of the hitch receiver opening to the top of that ball platform. Really nice, strong, durable system. That's gonna do it for today's review of part number PS49583. This is the Pro Series, RB3, round bar weight distribution system.

I've always received great service from eTrailer and this transaction was no different. Having owned 5th wheel trailers in the past I had no experience with weight distributing hitches. I had a sales rep from Hensley trying to convince me I needed their $1700 set up but I liked the price of the RB3, however the adage, "You get what you pay for" was nagging me. My wife was also nagging me about spending $1700 on a hitch and since I like sleeping indoors, I went with the RB3. Tow vehicle - 2000 Ford Expedition 4x4 Eddie Bauer. 5.4l and factory towing package. Rated for 6800lbs Trailer - 2014 Dutchman 275. 27.5' no slides, empty weight 4618lb, gross 7800lbs, average towing weight 6000lbs I contacted the eTrailer techs to figure out what I needed capacity wise and placed my order. Hitch was shipped promptly and to my surprise was very well packaged. The cardboard box was robust. It was taped, stapled and strapped well beyond UPS's ability to destroy. Inside the parts were secured in fitted foam pockets so the paint was not damaged. All the parts were well painted and fit together correctly. The RB3 is stout and well designed. My only brief scare was the owners manual. The part number on the manual indicated I had received the lighter duty hitch however when I double checked the part numbers on the components, I had received the correct product. The instructions were clear and I had the hitch assembled and set up in about 2 hrs. Hitching up is simple once all the settings are dialed in. We went on a 900 mile maiden voyage that involved freeways with brutal cross winds, very steep mountain passes and narrow winding forest service roads with huge washouts. The hitch performed perfectly and I was impressed how well the Expedition-Dutchman combo performed. I didn't order the optional anti-sway and one time on the trip for about 5 miles we had an extreme crosswind that pushed us around and I had to slow down to 40mph. I blame that more on my Load range C tires on the Expy than the trailer pushing us. In checking on the Expedition forums, the consensus was Load range E tires would fix the sway problem. 210210

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

Thanks so much for your business and review, Ryan. The required tools for installation are listed in the upper left-hand corner of the instructions.

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

Installed this product on a livestock trailer in about an hour. The installation is fairly simple, however, you'll want to take your time to make sure you have the ball at the correct height and angled down (or up) so that your spring bars are level. This may take a few steps of trial and error but once you set it right the first time, you won't need to adjust it for every use. I orginally purchased the trunnion bar style, but because my coupler on my stock trailer is approximately 3 inches higher than the A-frame, I needed to get the round bar style so that I could have additional clearance between my bar and the frame of the trailer. Now I can run 6 links between the two and everything sits level. A weight distribution hitch allows me to now pull 10,500lbs, where I could only tow 5,000 without one. A good product at a good price. If you only need it for recreational towing, this product should be more than capable. 135034

For ten years I was an RV delivery driver and used etrailer for equipment. Now I'm an RV owner and in retirement, again using etrailer. We have downsized from our dually diesel to an F150 EcoBoost and no longer pull monster 5th wheels, but have a nice Airstream. From experience I would never pull anything without a weight transferring hitch and again from experience this Pro-Series is one of the best. Great equipment, great prices, great fast delivery etrailer always gets our business. I've already ordered again. 182637

Instructions with this unit were good, although jacking the tow vehicle with the trailer attached up 8-12", in order to ready the weight distributing hitch for attaching the chains, seemed excessive; practically lifted the rear of my SUV off the ground! I may need to call customer service about this. For now I only have used the hitch to move the trailer to storage; I'll have to repeat the setup once the SUV and trailer are loaded for camping. The hitch seemed to allow nice steady towing for that short distance. 178247

by: Norm Smith06/27/2016


The hitch does a very good job of redistributing the hitch weight. I have an extended (12") shank so I can open my tailgate, and the hitch helps overcome this. The only problem is disconnecting the spring bars. The retaining pins for the spring bars have a very small flange to grip when pulling the pins to release the spring bars, and it can be hard to manipulate. Other than that, I am very satisfied with the hitch. 265515

by: ED S.12/13/2016


The only problem I encountered on the installation of the head was getting the washers on the rivet. Fingers too big and area too small, plus having to take the thing apart several times to get what seemed to be the best position for the spring arms in relation to the trailer tongue. Will be making a two thousand mile trip beginning tomorrow, hope is all works as good as advertised. 324726

This is my first experience with a weight distribution hitch. I was very impressed with the improvement in the ride while pulling my travel trailer. It greatly reduced the bounce and increased stability. I use this hitch with a friction "swag" bar that I had purchase previously. 408165

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for a 30 ft Camper Trailer
  • The most important thing to consider when picking out a weight distribution system is the tongue weight of the setup. I attached an FAQ article on how to determine tongue weight for you, but you will also need to consider the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle as tongue weight. Typically tongue weight is between 10-15 percent of the total weight of the trailer which in your case would be between 850 lbs and 1275 lbs. If you find that you are at 850 lbs tongue weight then the Pro...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendations for 7000 lb Trailer W/ 550 lb Tongue Weight
  • When you choose a W/D system, you want the fully loaded trailer tongue weight (plus the weight of anything in the cargo area or truck bed behind the rear axle) to fall as close to the center of the system's effective weight range as possible. If your fully loaded tongue weight is in the neighborhood of 550 lbs, the # PS49583 system would have a much larger capacity than you need. The trailer would have a very rough ride. A better choice would be slightly lower rated system like the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for a Ford F150 Towing a Jayco Jayflight Baja Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The Pro Series weight distribution hitch # PS49583 you referenced will be more of an overkill because the tongue weight won't be high enough on a 3,200 pound trailer. The two I recommend are the Pro Series...

  • Replacement U-Bolts for Chains on a Weight Distribution System
  • It sounds like you are looking for replacement chain hanger u-bolt # 1436 that fits at the end of the spring bars. I have included a picture that shows the measurements of the u-bolt. Current pricing is available on each product page.

  • How to Select Trailer Weight Distribution System Based on Trailer Loaded Tongue Weight
  • Weight distribution systems are sensitive to the actual tongue weight (TW) load on them. We offer a handy scale # 5780 that takes the guesswork out of determining your loaded trailer TW. The TW figure you need to be concerned with consists of the actual measured trailer TW when it is fully-loaded with all your supplies plus the weight of any cargo in the tow vehicle that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or loaded cooler. The ideal situation is that this combined total TW...

  • 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...

  • Can Weight Distribution Hitch Be Used with Hitch Extender Like MaxxTow # MT70070
  • A hitch extender or adapter, like the dual-receiver MaxxTow # MT70070, cannot be used with weight distribution (WD) systems. As you note, use of ANY adapter has the unavoidable side-effect of cutting your hitch's capacity by 50-percent. An adapter would prevent the WD system from doing its job of shifting trailer tongue weight forward to the Dakota's front axle to keep your braking and steering performance intact. But we do have better alternatives for you. If you have an a-frame trailer...

  • Weight Distribution for a Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight and a 2007 Chevy Avalanche
  • Depending on the weight distribution you currently have and its approximate age, you may just be able to switch out the bars as opposed to a complete new system. You will also want to make sure that the hitch on your 2007 Chevy Avalanche and the vehicle itself are rated for weight distribution and the 800 pound tongue weight of your trailer. There are systems rated as high as 1,500 pounds tongue weight. Typically you want a system with a range that encompasses the tongue weight of your...

  • Should Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Disconnected When Launching a Boat
  • You should be totally fine, since the trailer will lower down as it goes down the drop off on your boat ramp the tension in the spring bars will actually lower and wouldn't be an issue for you. If you were going the opposite direction and the trailer was raising, like if you were back up a steel driveway the spring tension would drastically increase. But in your situation you should be just fine. Some WD systems require the removal of the spring bars when backing up. You might want to...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2016 Starcraft AR-ONe 14RB Travel Trailer
  • Most likely the Pro Series RB3 weight distribution system part # PS49581 would work well based on the dimensions you listed since this system is designed for tongue weights up to 550 lbs. I can't imagine your tongue weight would end up being more than that, but you do need to consider the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle as tongue weight. If you do need to go with a higher rated system the part # RP66541 is good for up to 800 lbs of tongue weight. I attached...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2006 Ford F-250 and 9,900 Pound Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. For a trailer that maxes out at 9.900 pound gross trailer weight the tongue weight would be 990 to 1,485 pounds. If you determine the total tongue weight to be in that range then I recommend a system rated...

  • Taller Weight Distribution Shank for Curt Round Bar System to Tow Forest River Trailer Level
  • It sounds like you are looking for a weight distribution shank that will allow you to have a greater drop in order to tow your trailer level. Based on the heights you referenced, it sounds like you need around an additional 2 inches of drop to tow your trailer level. We do carry a number of weight distribution shanks that will allow you to have a greater drop, but nothing that is designed to be added on to your existing shank. For a Curt weight distribution shank that has 10-3/4 inches...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Trailer with a Pole Tongue
  • I have a solution for you, but the Blue Ox weight distribution systems aren't designed to fit pole tongue trailers, nor is there an adapter available for these systems that would work. Reese on the other hand does have a pole tongue adapter that would work with one of their WD systems. The adapter you would need is part # RP58393. Since you have an aluminum trailer you will need to check with the manufacturer of the trailer to make sure that WD systems can be used with the trailer. Then...

  • Economical Weight Distribution System for 2005 Chevy Suburban Towing Forest River Trailer

I suggest you review the Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control, part # PS49903. This complete system includes head assembly, adjustable shank, lift brackets, round bars, lift chains, pin and...

  • Weight Distribution for a Jeep Grand Cherokee and 5,000 Pound Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Since the Jeep is rated for a maximum of 6,500 pounds gross trailer weight that is what you are limited to. So towing a 5,000 pound trailer with the appropriate weight distribution system will work but you...

  • Best Weight Distribution for 2013 Ram 1500 and Coleman E3 Popup Trailer with Varying Tongue Weight

This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Since the tongue weight is going to vary even a rough estimate of the range will help to determine the best option. In terms of flexibility I recommend either going with a system that does not include...

  • Weight Distribution for 2015 Nissan Pathfinder
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. The Draw Tite hitch # 76031 for...

  • The Pro Series Weight Distribution System # PS49903 that you have is rated for up to 1,000 lbs of tongue weight and up to 10,000 lbs of total trailer weight. With your setup that has 875 lbs of tongue weight this system would be ideal. The tongue weight range for this system is 750-1,000 lbs.

  • Weight Distribution Suggestions for Trailer Whose Ride Height is 10 Inches Greater Than Trailer Ball
  • First, you'll want to identify exactly how much of a rise you'll need for the trailer to be towed level. I've linked you to a help article showing how to measure to determine that. Since the trailer coupler is taller than the receiver on your truck, you'll need a weight distribution shank with a rise. To allow for squat, you'll need a shank whose rise will place the trailer ball about 1-1/2 to 2 inches higher than the coupler height. Once you determine the correct shank height, you'll...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2007 Chevy Silverado Towing 750 lbs Tongue Weight
  • Your tongue weight is going to be around 750-ish with the weight of your cap so you would need to pick out a weight distribution system for that range. The Pro Series kit part # PS49583 would be a great option as it has a tongue weight range of up to 1,000 lbs so it would work well for you. For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2006 Hummer H3 Towing 2016 KZ Escape Camper
  • The key to choosing the right weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system for your camper trailer is to know its fully-loaded, road-ready tongue weight (TW). To the trailer's actual measured TW you'll add the weight of anything that sits in the Hummer behind the rear axle, say a cooler or generator, as this will add to the effective TW the system will see. The easiest method for measuring TW is a simple scale like the Sherline # 5780 but other methods are outlined in the linked article. Once...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Anti-Sway for 2013 Ram 1500 Towing 20-Ft Trailer
  • The air bag system will not increase the weight carrying capacity of your Ram, but if the trailer weighs more than half of the weight of your truck or if you feel the trailer sway when towing due to high winds or large passing trucks I recommend a weight distribution system for your Ram. I recommend adjusting the air bags on your truck before setting up a weight distribution system. Doing that means your truck will return to the right level when you are not towing. When selecting...

  • Can a Weight Distribution System Fix Trailer Sway on Boat Trailer With Very Low Tongue Weight
  • With a tongue weight that low, the geometry of your trailer is so out of whack that I sincerely doubt a weight distribution system would be able to help. I'd use extreme caution when towing that trailer, be sure to keep your speed low. The most simple fix would be to move the boat further up toward the front of the trailer if possible. It would involve moving the winch stand and the bunks and/or rollers so that the boat sits closer toward the front of the trailer. You might want to check...

  • Compatibility of a Weight Distribution on an Aluminum Framed Trailer

After confirming with the manufacture that you may use a weight distribution you would want to find a system that works for your needs based on the Fully Loaded TW...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Stolen Husky WD Components
  • Sorry to hear about your weight distribution system getting stolen. Due to the price of the individual parts you need (head, ball and shank) it is most likely going to be a better option to replace the entire system. We only have the one replacement Husky head # HT31516 and when you combine it's price with a new shank like # RP3215 you are at the price of some systems. Actually a Pro Series Round Bar system like part # PS49583 would cost almost as much as just one of the above mentioned...

  • How to Adapt Older 1980's EAZ-Lift Weight Distribution System for New Dodge Ram 3500

We do offer bolt-together WD shanks like # C17100 from Curt but this mixing of parts is not advisable for safety reasons as the resulting capacity would be unknown. Since you have had good use from your old system I suggest you choose a new WD system...

With your fully loaded trailer an any cargo in the bed of your Ram truck behind the rear axle, I think you'd be right towards the top of your limit with the smaller system and the larger system can be adjusted as needed for lighter loads.
