Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

This is for you if:

  • Great for V-nose trailers because the short arms don't need as much clearance along the frame as standard arms do
  • Basic, bar-style friction sway control will help push your trailer back in line when it sways
  • Everything's included, even a pre-torqued hitch ball

This isn't for you if:

  • Chains don't provide much tension or stability, so sway is still bound to occur
  • Can't reverse, use in inclement weather, or pair with surge brakes because of the friction sway control
This weight-distribution system will help to evenly distribute the load over the axles of both your tow vehicle and trailer for a smooth, controlled ride. Shank and pre-attached, pre-torqued 2-5/16" ball included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Curt.

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 Curt Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - C17322 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C17322. This is the Curt Weight Distribution System, and it's going to include a sway control system. This unit's going to help evenly distribute the weight over the axles, of your tow vehicle and your trailer for safety, stability, and control. It's going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. Now this piece right here, this is going to be our sway control system. The friction sway control is going to reduce sway that's caused by winds, curving roads, and sudden maneuvers.

It's going to feature the adjustable tension, right here. This is going to let you create the perfect degree of control and resistance. You're also going to have the integrated handle. This is going to engage and disengage the system. Once it's installed, the socket right here is going to install over that hitch ball. That ball can be positioned on either side of the head assembly.

That would go on there, and then you're going to have a spacer plate, and the frame ball, that's going to attach the system to the fame of the trailer. The sway control system is going to be held in place with a couple clips. It just goes in the side here and secures it against the ball. It's easily removable, all you have to do is release the two screen locking-pins, and then you can remove the system. The sway control system is included.

With the sway control system you're going to get the actual sway control, you're going to get the sway control ball, the trailer-mounted attachment ball, the spacer plate, and all the necessary hardware to get that system installed. Back to our weight distribution system we're going to have the trunnion spring bars. These are going to be constructed of solid forged steel for strength and durability. You can adjust the spring-bar tension by switching the links in the lift chains, so that's going to allow you to fine-tune your system. These right here are going to be our lift brackets. They get mounted to the frame of our trailer.

If we take a measurement of that real quick we can see that they're going to take up about 4 inches of space along the trailer frame, and the opening size right here to fit around the frame, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2-3/4 of an inch. This is going to be ideal for trailer frames that measure 2-1/2 inches in width. Those chains are going to connect to this right here, and then again you can adjust the spring bar tension by switching the lengths in the chains. The lift brackets are going to come with two different sized bolts. You're going to get a 2-inch bolt that goes into this portion right here. It secures it the frame of the trailer. You're also going to get your 4-inch long bolts. Now the 2-inch long bolts are included to fit larger trailer frames. Another neat thing about this system is here at the head assembly. You can actually tilt the head down to get the tilt that you need for your particular application. In order to do that is going to use an adjustment rod and washer design. You're going to get two adjustment rods, very similar to spacer rivets. They're going to go in between the opening of the head assembly and the front face of the adjustable shank. Then you obviously use the shorter one for less tilt, and use the larger one for more tilt. It's going to come with two washers so you can add or remove those to get the desired tilt that you need. Another neat thing about those is that's kind of a newer system and it's going to come with a tilt-adjustment instruction sheet, and it's going to walk you through that process to get the tilt that you need for your application. Also here on the head assembly we're going to have a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. The unit's going to be made from a steel construction. Everything's going to have a nice powder-coated finish on it so it's going to resist rusting corrosion. This lever right here, this is called our snap-up lever. This is going to ease the installation by reducing the lifting that's required by the trailer jack to get our spring bars in place. It goes over this portion here and that's going to assist us in raising and lowering the spring bars. The maximum tongue weight for this unit is going to be 1,000 pounds. The maximum gross towing weight is 10,000 pounds. The unit is designed for 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with the rate-distribution system. This is going to be the shank. This portion back here is the portion that goes into your 2-inch by 2-inch hitch and it comes with the 5/8-inch pin and clip to get that installed and secured. Now the shank link from edge to edge is going to measure about 12-inches long from the center of the mount holes, to the center of the hitch pin hole, that's going to measure about 8-inches. This unit is going to feature a 6-hole mount design. These holes are going to be separated on center apart from one another by an inch and a quarter. When using this system in the rise position, with the head assembly at the highest setting it's going to give us a maximum rise of about 2-1/2 inches from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of our ball platform. With it installed at the lowest setting, with the shank in the drop position, it's going to give us a maximum drop of about 1/2-inch, and that's still measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of our hitch to the top of the ball platform. All the necessary hardware to get the head assembly attached to the shank is included. That shank is also going to be made from a solid steel construction. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C17322. This is the Curt Weight Distribution system with the included sway control system.

I had an L shaped weight distribution hitch before I bought this Curt model from E trailer.If you the coop ape the two the older one wS easier to operate. The Pins that lock the chain brackets in please are difficult to remove and adding wd40 does not help also this new one seems to be lower to the ground,, making me bend over and sometimes or even get to my knees to hook it up .My wife used to be able to help me with the older one the new one she is not able so I do both sides myself . Also the part that connects to the truck you need to hold it sideways then flip the the release up and maneuver it he top 2 tabs into place , lot more work than the L shaped one I had. It’s ok otherwise. 615701

Review from a similar Short-Arm in Weight Distribution Hitch


I had a fastway e2 trunnion 12k pound hitch and hated it. It was great if you didnt need much pressure on the bars and always hooked up while on flat even ground. Most times I had to use a 3 foot prybar to get the weight transfer bars off the trailer and a 3 foot cheater bar to get the bars on!!! This 15k pound hitch from curt is great!!!! The welds could be better (pretty picky I'm a fabricator by trade) but nothing beats this style hitch. It may take an extra step if you want the friction brake but it is worth it. I run 2 friction brakes as I have a 38ft travel trailer and is pretty much a giant sail. The trunnion hitch couldn't handle that camper in the wind and there wasnt a way to adjust the bars for a windy day. but this hitch with 2 brakes works great. Dont always need 2 brakes but I like the option for when its windy out and we have a 2 hour drive on the expressway!!! 610729

  • Using Curt Short Arm Weight Distribution System on V-Nose Trailer
    With Curt Short Arm weight distribution systems like the part # C17322 that you referenced the distance from the center of the hitch ball to the far edge of the chain hanger will be 30-5/8 inches. A lot of times the best solution for V-nose trailers like yours is to use bolt on hangers like part # C17005 instead as this style does not require clearance above the frame channel so it fits right underneath the V-nose.

  • Choosing Correct Curt Weight Distribution System for Trailer with GVWR of 6,243 Pounds
    You upgraded your weight distribution from the Curt short-arm system, part # C17322, to the Curt TruTrack, part # C17500, which is much better system but it's still rated too high most likely. It all depends on the loaded trailer's tongue weight. Both of those systems are rated for 800 to 1,000 pounds of tongue weight. So you want the tongue weight of your loaded trailer added to the amount of weight you add behind the rear axle of your two vehicle to be between 800 and 1,000 pounds....

  • Is Curt 1,000 Pound Weight Distribution System Rated too High for 6,250 Pound Boat Trailer
    Curt weight distribution system # C17322 is rated for 800 to 1,000 pounds tongue weight so it would be overkill for your trailer unless you also have weight behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle that increases the tongue weight to at least 800 pounds. There is a similar Curt system, # C17330, rated for 500 to 600 pounds tongue weight and another, # C17331, rated for 600 to 800 pounds.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 6,500 Pound Trailer and 2008 Ford F-350
    When choosing weight distribution you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by first determining the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow. Then to that you would add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So for example lets say that your gross trailer weight is 6,500 pounds and nothing is loaded behind the rear axle of the truck. The...

  • Can You Reverse with a Weight Distribution System Installed
    The warning for backing up weight distribution systems like the # C17322 that you referenced is because of the friction sway control system that is included. As long as you aren't jackknifing your trailer when you are backing up you should be fine. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to do that you will want to remove the spring bars and the friction sway control (if you have one) and then you would be fine to back the trailer up.

  • 6000 lb Travel Trailer Towed By 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is Still Swaying Using Friction Sway Control
    As a first step, you can check the tension control on the friction sway unit. If it is not already adjusted to maximum, try increasing the tension to see if that helps the situation improve. Increasing the tongue weight of the trailer is usually the best way to combat trailer sway. If possible, redistribute some of the gear in your travel trailer so that it is as far forward of the axles as possible.

  • Setting Up Weight Distribution When Transferring from a 1/2 Ton Truck to a 2009 3/4 Ton Silverado
    It sounds as if your new 3/4 ton truck has might be a bit taller and the suspension is stiffer so the tongue weight of your trailer is not affecting the truck suspension nearly as much. In this case, I would recommend adjusting the height of your weight distribution head mount so that the when the trailer is coupled the trailer frame will be towed as level as possible. To adjust the ball mount, park the trailer on fairly level ground and measure from the ground up to the top of the coupler....

This system is probably too heavy for your pop up trailer and you will experience a stiff ride. From the research I did, the camper will have a tongue weight of around 375 pounds.

For a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball you would then want the part # A-6. The part # C17322 would technically work, but since it is rated a bit too high you would end up with a harsher ride quality than the # C17341. Both systems will allow backing up.

  • Recommendations to Reduce Sway on a Pop Up Camper that Has Weight in the Rear of Camper
    The best recommendation I could give you would be to move as much weight to the front of your trailer as possible. That will give you the best results. Sway control systems work best on setups that will start to sway when a semi-truck passes or if it's just windy in general. If too much weight is in the back of a trailer the best solution is to move the weight forward or if that's not possible add weight to the front of the trailer.

Total Tongue Weight is the Tongue Weight (TW) of your loaded and ready-to-go trailer, plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2014 GMC Sierra. Once you know what your TTW is, then you can make sure to pick out an appropriate WD system. Also, the TW of any trailer should...

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution on 2009 Chevy Trailblazer Towing Jayco 4,600-Lb Trailer
    Since the towing capacity of your 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer is 5,200 lbs and you are towing a 4,600-lb dry weight trailer, you will want to be careful and not overload the trailer with extra cargo that might put you over the 5,200-lb limit. Also, when loading the trailer make sure to load 60 percent of the cargo closer to the front (tongue) of the trailer. This will also help with sway control of the trailer. For your 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer 4WD towing a 5,200-lb trailer the tongue...

  • How to Select a Properly Rated Weight Distribution Hitch For Towing with a 2011 Dodge Durango

  • How to Pick Out a Weight Distribution System for a 34 ft V-Nose Trailer
    When picking out a weight distribution system the most important figure to consider is the loaded tongue weight of the setup. Thats with everything loaded in the trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. If the 900 lbs you listed as your tongue weight is the loaded tongue weight then the Curt Weight Distribution System # C17322 you referenced would be a good choice because of its 800-1,000 lb tongue weight range. If you need additional tongue weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Towing Trailer Loaded Weighing 7,740 Pounds Towed by F150
    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 most important rating to use when matching up a weight distribution system is the actual tongue weight. The weight distribution I recommend is the Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution with sway control...

  • Weight Distribution for a 10,000 Pound Trailer and 2004 Ford F-350 Diesel
    When calculating tongue weight to choose a weight distribution system you also have to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So the minimum weight of the trailer is around 5,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds is the gross weight. At 10 to 15 percent that puts the range at 500 to 1,500 pounds. That is a big range. But it is probably not likely that you will be at 1,500 pounds tongue weight (correct me if I am wrong). So we can look at some other systems. The...

  • How to Pick Out a Weight Distribution System for a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Towing a 24 ft Thor Camper
    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.
