Coupler Replacement Recommendation for a 10k Pintle Trailer for Installing Weight Distribution


I have a 10000# trailer with a pintle hitch. I would like to purchase a weight distribution sway control device, but all pictures show a ball connection. Do you have anything that works with a pintle hitch or do I need to convert?

Weight distribution systems can't be used with the pintle setups. The only option you would have for installing one would be to remove the ring on your trailer and install a coupler. I attached a link to a page that has all of the A-frame couplers we offer.

The part # CA5400 would be a great option. This has a 14k capacity and is designed to fit a 2-5/16 inch ball.

If your cargo is going to weigh around 10k most likely you are going to need a higher rated system though. For that the part # RP66130 would be a better option as it has the range of 800 to 1,500 lbs of tongue weight. You would need a shank with this system since this does not come with it. For that you would need the part # RP54970.

For a 2-5/16 inch ball you would need # 19286.
