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 of 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, and it also gives you the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


Blue Ox weight distribution system

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 towing 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 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.


2 Types of Sway Control

The TrackPro features 2 different sway control technologies to provide the best towing experience possible.


Positive Caster Keeps Trailer Centered

Blue Ox TrackPro Positive Caster

The TrackPro is built with a positive caster angle - pointed toward the rear of your trailer - to help stop sway before it even starts. This is the same technology that vehicles use to stay centered on the road. When you turn a corner in your car and let go of the steering wheel, the wheel automatically corrects itself and returns to center. This is caster taking over. Likewise, the TrackPro features a positive caster angle built into the hitch. Working in tandem with the tapered spring bars to create a self-centering force, this caster angle helps to keep your trailer consistently centered behind your tow vehicle, even during high winds and sharp turns, resulting in a smoother towing experience.


Steel-on-Steel Friction Corrects Sway

Blue Ox TrackPro Steel-on-Steel Friction

While this system does its best to keep your trailer in line, the TrackPro is also able to correct sway should it occur. Unlike many traditional weight distribution systems with chain-style setups, the TrackPro uses steel brackets to hold the ends of the spring bars, and therefore your trailer, in place. While chain-style setups do a good job with weight distribution alone, they aren't really designed to limit sway, so they typically allow a good amount of side-to-side play.


In addition to better holding the trailer in line, these brackets create friction with the spring bars to combat sway that might occur in heavy winds or following sudden maneuvers. When this type of sway happens, the tapered ends of the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. This friction limits the movement of the spring bar, which minimizes further side-to-side movement of the trailer. The steel-on-steel friction that occurs with the TrackPro's spring bars is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars that weigh multiple tons, so you know it'll be highly effective.


Fast, Easy Setup

Blue Ox TrackPro Hitch Head

Many weight distribution systems require you to manually adjust the pitch of the hitch head by stacking washers. This can be a tedious, trial-and-error process where you have to unhook your trailer, disassemble the head to add or remove washers to get the desired tilt, put it all back together, and then determine if you have the correct placement. If the pitch still isn't right, you have to do it all over again.


The TrackPro removes all of that hassle with an easy-to-use hitch head that has the required pitch already built into it. Whereas other systems require washers to help achieve the proper tension in the head, the positive caster angle built into the TrackPro ensures the proper pitch, so there's no need to manually adjust the tilt. The only adjustment that may be needed is the placement of the head on the shank. Move the head up or down along the weight distribution shank to achieve the proper rise or drop for your setup. No additional, fine-tune adjustment is needed.

Track Pro Distribution 13K Lb hitch: Delivered within 2 days- box was intact and everything was there. Easy to install with instructions (and a couple of online videos). Used it on a new 36' travel trailer that I was picking up from the dealer so I'm not sure how my 99 GMC 1500 would have performed without it. Reports of 20-30 mph winds that day and I had no issues sway and it kept the trailer completely level.

I just received these so no review on them yet but I am reviewing etrailer and customer service at this time. I ordered these in time for my move but their computer calculated the wrong tax (not me !). I owed $5.00 but they they call me -NO. So they cancelled the order and didn’t notify me. I looked up order to check tracking and found out cancelled. I called manager said was computer glitch the day I ordered. So I had to reorder. I was GUARANTEED by a manager they would expedite and guarantee 3 day delivery. Did they arrive as promised NO. They arrived a day late after I had left.

Because I wanted to use the hitch on an equipment trailer I was concerned about clearance at the wide front a-frame of the trailer. I called and spoke with a lady about the issue and she said send me some pictures. Because I use an old flip phone she said send it to my personal number. Wow! I did so and you folks confirmed that it would clear and I ordered it. The package came apart in shipment and lost some bolts, but your rep ordered them for me. The only clearance issue after install was my safety chain location. I can remedy that with minor alterations. Very pleased with the item and service. I can send a photo but it would have to go to the lady's personal number. Thanks, Reid

Pulled to Dallas from Jackson, MS and back and they performed as advertised - sway was cut way dawn. When it did occur it was self correcting.

My hitch weight stated by the manufature was 595#, When the dealer weight the tongue it was 800#. I called Alex up and he did not me feel bad, just offered a solution. Shipped out a replacement and I got it quickly. Excellent service.

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Bought this to reduce rear sag in truck and you would think installing is pretty common sense but apparently it isn't. Instructions aren't very clear and since sad didn't go away at all, I'm guessing it isn't installed correctly. Instructions need to be MORE clear than they are otherwise you'll need to pay a professional to install it as I have no idea if it's correct or not.

Please take a look at this attached video starting at the 11:08 mark to make sure you followed the same install instructions as the etrailer installers.

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Works well. It's my first time with a distribution hitch, so I've no basis for comparison. I tow a 7200# 30' trailer with a 2007 F-150 (full-timer). It took a few trips to the scales to get things right, since I'm very close to my weight limits. Product arrived without the receiver (damaged box). Etrailer was very quick to provide replacement.

On assembly, I discovered that it was sent with incorrect mounting plates. Blue Ox expedited a parts kit. Overall, it seems to work well. I still have to be careful with wind, or I get pushed around on the road. It's mostly a non-issue.

I've traveled about 5-6K miles, and there is some noticeable wear, scoring, and rust developing where the torsion bars meet the trailer. These parts should be easily replaceable, as long as they're still manufactured. You may want to consider spares once you confirm that you have the correct bars. The friction points can develop metal splinters.

The pivots started showing wear after a long stretch of bouncy highway in Iowa. It was within the 1st 1000 miles, so I'll count this as break-in. I just readjusted the mounting point on the trailer at an overnight stop. I haven't had to adjust it since. The slop in the bushings makes for a greasy mess.

Wear gloves and put a plastic bag over the receiver when you remove it, or you're going to get greasy. Also, be careful of how low the receiver hangs down. I've caught it twice in uneven parking lots. I'm leaving it long, since it helps protect the tongue jack.

It meets expectation. Etrailer and Blue Ox provided excellent customer service. I still took one star, since I was on a deadline with work, and my plans got pushed back two weeks because of this. It shouldn't have happened in the first place, but the customer service from both parties was fantastic.


Comments
With a weight distribution system, you want the loaded tongue weight of your trailer to fall within the middle of the tongue weight range that the weight distribution bars are rated for. The bars that are on this weight distribution system BLU67FR are rated for tongue weights between 600 and 800 lbs. Since you say your trailer weight is 7200 lbs, it is possible that you may be overloading the bars. I would suggest that you measure the exact tongue weight with the trailer loaded. You can measure your exact tongue weight with part # 5780

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


This thing is amazing! I bought this to haul my 24’ car (toy) hauler behind my 03 Suburban which has coil springs instead of leaf springs. This hitch has made a world of difference. I honestly was shocked at the difference it made. It almost feels like I’m not hauling a trailer at all.

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Easy to install haven’t driven the truck yet, but it seems to be doing exactly what it needs too.

Trailer hooked up with the blue ox the rear of the truck sits 4” higher than without. The nose drops about 3/4” compared to no blue ox. Massive difference in the right direction.

The photos are a 2021 4Runner no extra load in the back. Trailers 17’ ~3,500lbs max. I believe about a 350lb tongue weight and was mostly un-loaded.


Comments
You mentioned that your trailer unloaded weight is 350 pounds and I wondered what your loaded tongue weight would be? The reason that I ask if that this systems spring bars have a tongue weight range of 600 to 800 pounds. If the tongue weight of the trailer is under the tongue weight of the bars then it can create a noisier and bumpy ride. I know that you are happy with the system however I wanted to let you know in case this changes. You can always swap out the bars and go with part # BLU82FR

Review from a similar TrackPro in Weight Distribution Hitch


Item received timely and in good condition. Installation was rather simple, as the instructions were very good and everything for well. However, on of the pins was missing. This was a minor inconvenience, as I was able to find one at the closest hardware store 10 miles away. This is the only reason this is not a five star rating. Upon completion of installation, pulling my grooming trailer with the water tanks partial or full at greater than 55 mph was no longer a harrowing experience that I often wondered if I would survive. If you pull a trailer often, and it had swaying issues, this product is absolutely necessary.


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The manufacturer prefers to have you use the hardware that comes with the system however if you do need to use replacement hardware in a pinch you will want to make sure that it is grade 8 hardware.

  • Higher Rated Weight Distribution for 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Towing Forest River Rockwood Signature
    Going with a higher rated weight distribution system will give you the best ride quality, handling, and steering when towing since your current system isn't rated for the weight you will be towing. The Blue Ox TrackPro part # BLU27FR that you mentioned would be a really great option with a perfect tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,300 lbs of tongue weight. Air bags would reduce the sag but wouldn't improve the handling or braking so it wouldn't be as ideal of a solution.
