Expert Answers about Weight Distribution


  • Recommendation for a Weight Distribution System for a 2014 Ford F150 and a 29ft Trailer
  • When trying to decide on a weight distribution system for your towing rig, you will need to know the total tongue weight of your set-up. The total tongue weight will be a fully loaded ready to tow trailer, plus any weight located behind the rear axle of your Ford F-150. Once you have found your total tongue weight, you will be able to decided on the correct system for your towing application. I have attached an article that will explain how to find the total tongue weight of your towing...

  • Upgrading a 12K Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System to a 14K
  • There area few differences between the 1,200 and 1,400 pound Equal-I-zer systems. The heads are different and the spring bars are different. If your tongue weight is over 1,200 pound then the 1,200 pound system is not rated high enough. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle....

  • Recommendation For Equalizer Weight Distribution Hitch For 30 Foot Travel Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to get one that works with your setup when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. This fully loaded weight will also include all cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ford F-150. To help get an accurate reading when fully loaded, you can use a scale like the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale, Item # 5780. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out. Ideally, you want to get a system where your...

  • Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 800 to 850 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • When choosing a weight distribution system you want to choose one that your total tongue weight falls right in the middle of the system's range. That's the reasoning behind the options to choose. So if you are to filter by 800 or 900 pounds tongue weight you'll come with the Reese Steadi-Flex # RP66559 rated from 500 to 1,000 pounds and the # RP66560 rated from 600 to 1,200 pounds. I know it can be kind of confusing. Since your trailer's tongue weight is between 800 to 850 pounds...

  • Longer Shank for use With Fastway Weight Distribution System
  • There are some solutions available to you, but we do not carry 18 inch shanks designed for use with Fastway weight distribution systems. Since Equal-i-zer makes a pair of shanks that are 18 inches and have tongue weight capacities between 600 lbs and 1,400 lbs your best option would be to get an Equal-i-zer weight distribution system and shank. For example, Equal-i-zer system # EQ37061ET has a GTW of 6,000 lbs and a total tongue weight capacity of 600 lbs, while # EQ37041ET has a GTW...

  • Upgrading to 1,200 Pound Weight Distribution Spring Bars for 7,725 Pound Trailer
  • The dry hitch weight is the weight with the trailer empty of everything including propane and any other cargo, water, and other items. The gross weight of your 2017 Grey Wolf 26DBH is 7,725 pounds. That is the maximum the trailer can weigh when loaded and ready to tow. The empty weight is 5,795 pounds. So is 725 is the dry hitch weight then that is 12.5 percent of the gross trailer weight. That means that when loaded to the max 7,725 pounds the tongue weight would be around 965 pounds....

  • Comparison of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems for Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Both the # FA94-00-1061 and the # FA92-00-1000 weight distribution systems are rated for 1,000 pounds of tongue weight which is a good choice for your trailer that has 800 pounds of tongue weight. The difference between the two is that the # FA92-00-1000 uses trunion spring bars and # FA94-00-1061 uses round spring bars. There isn't much advantage either way except trunion bars connect to the head by sliding directly into it and round bars come in from the bottom. The benefit is that...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2013 Forest River R-Pod 177
  • A weight distribution system is a good idea anytime there is a noticeable drop on the rear suspension of your vehicle. It is also a good idea if you are experiencing any sway to help minimize that trailer wander with wind gusts and passing traffic. Your 245 lb dry tongue weight along with 36 gallon fresh water tank will double that weight. The Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17050 you referenced will help with the distribution and reduce sag but will not help at all with...

They are similar in tongue and weight capacity at 12,000-lbs for towing capacity and 1,200-lbs for tongue weight capacity. Both feature sway control and use clamp-on no-drill brackets. Both of these systems will allow you to back up with the bars attached and will work with surge brakes. The SteadiFlex system uses brake pad material in the sway brackets, where the...

  • Does Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution Shank have the Rise/Drop to Tow Trailer Level w/2016 F-250
  • Given that your 2016 Ford F-250 is a 4x4 and has large tires on it there is a good chance that the shank included with Curt weight distribution system # C17501 doesn't have enough drop to tow your trailer level. First we need to figure out how much drop (or rise if the trailer coupler is taller than the hitch receiver) is needed. With the truck and trailer on level ground but not hooked up to each other there are a couple of measurements needed. Measure from the ground to the top of...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
  • A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Limited Access to Tongue Area

This system's spring bars are 2-1/4-inches shorter, at 28-3/8-inches, than most other bars and so they can be the best option when there is limited space at the trailer tongue. All you need to add is a hitch ball, either 2-inch # A-90 or 2-5/16-inch # 19286. If your trailer nose blocks access to the side of the trailer frame where the spring bar brackets need...

  • Why Can't You Back Up when Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System PS49903
  • It is the friction sway control bar in Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # PS49903 that will prevent backing up. The problem is that when backing up force is applied differently to the sway control bar so that when turning and backing up it can damage to it or the trailer. All you would have to do though is disengage the sway control bar when you are ready to back up. Weight distribution systems with friction sway...

As long as you have a hitch installed on your vehicle like the Draw Tite part # 76112 which is rated for WD use you'd be set. Since you have minimal ground clearance you'll want to go with a trunnion bar weight distribution system since they have superior ground clearance over the round bar setups. For that the Fastway e2 kit part # FA92-00-0450 would be a great option as...

  • Equalizer weight distribution systems are regarded by many to be the best systems around. I recommend them quite a bit and it would be what I would recommend for you. The part # EQ37120ET would be the better option. The Curt systems like the part # C17501 aren't terrible systems but they are essentially Curt trying to copy the Equalizer design. We have also had a few issues with the frame brackets of the systems bending so we don't recommend them as high as the Equalizer. To install...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation Towing Jayco White Hawk 29BH
  • Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. Typically the...

  • What is the Difference Between 2-Point and 4-Point Sway Control
  • Weight distribution systems that have 2-point sway control generally have sway control just at the ends of the springs bars on the trailer side. On the Fastway systems for example the L bracket that secures the bar to the frame bracket can be tightened or loosened to adjust the amount of sway control tension on the bars. A system with 4-point sway control such as Curt # C17500 or Equal-I-zer hitch # EQ37100ET has the 2-point as mention above and then also sway control where the spring...

  • Things To Consider When Changing from a 3/4 Ton to 1/2 Ton Tow Vehicle
  • There are a few things you need to consider when switching from a 3/4 ton like your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 to a 1/2 ton like a 2018 Ford F-150. For starters, the 3/4 ton is going to have a stiffer suspension than the 1/2 ton. This means that although the 3/4 ton did not squat while towing your trailer, that's not to say that the 1/2 won't even though it may still have a higher towing capacity. Also, the 3/4 ton will be more geared towards towing while means it likely has upgraded...

  • 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...

That being said the best option is the part # RP66083 as it has a tongue weight range that would work perfectly as well but features sway control that works to fight sway before it starts. For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

Curt does not specify bracket placement for MV weight distribution systems however, the bars measure 30-5/8" long.

  • Comparing Reese Strait Line vs Steady Flex Hitch for Ease of Removal for Storage

The complexity of the systems to disconnect for storage will be similar, so I would just mark the trailer for easy reinstallation. The Strait-Line is a better system for sway control, so that is my recommendation for you. It appears more complex with the cams, but to remove it is really the same number of bolts.

  • Best Weight Distribution With Sway Control for Trailer With 1,100 lbs Total Tongue Weight
  • The BlueOx SwayPro # BXW1506 is a good system but I recommend the Reese Strait-Line # RP66130 over it. While both systems will be less noisy than the Equal-i-zer you referred to, the Strait-Line has the advantage because of its sway control system. The SwayPro uses a 4-point sway control system like the Equal-i-zer but the Strait-Line uses a dual cam system to prevent sway. This system's spring bars are suspended by this cam system (see accompanying photo) which ensures that the Strait-Line...

  • What is the Best Solution to Stop Trailer Sway While Towing with a New Ford F-150
  • The best solution for you to help prevent and eliminate trailer sway while towing at speed is to use a weight distribution system even if the truck does not sag while coupled to the trailer.

Also, the truck may still be sagging slightly even if it is not noticeable and that could be the reason one truck pulls a trailer better than the other. The two main reasons one truck would pull a trailer...
