The three Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems you referenced, # BXW0350, # BXW0353 and # BXW0356, are all rated for the same tongue weight (up to 350-lbs) and fit a 2-inch hitch, but differ in application.

Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution Hitch # BXW0353 is made for a trailer that has a bottom-mount coupler, one that installs from underneath. Parts # BXW0350 and # BXW0356 are for standard couplers. Between these other two systems there are also different shanks included that provide different amounts of height rise of drop. These ranges are noted in the specs section for each.

I have a 2013 Escape AWD with tow package and 2.0L EcoBoost. I am looking to tow an 6’x12’ enclosed trailer (not exceeding 3,500lbs. Which SwayPro should I use? I am thinking the 0350 is my best option, but would like to know what Shank, Bars and Head are included.

I doubt you would need too much drop on the adjustable shank with your Ford Escape, so the Blue Ox # BXW0350 you mentioned looks to be the way to go. It includes everything but the hitch ball - which you can easily add with the 2" # 63845 or 2-5/16" # 63847 .

@ChrisR I already have the BXW 1500-S. I am wondering what components the 0350 has that the 1500 already has.

@JasonP I gotcha - so you're looking to essentially downgrade your 1,500 pound setup to better match the lower tongue weight on your trailer? To convert what you have to # BXW0350 , you would just need to replace the spring bars with part # BXW4015 . Everything else on your existing system can still be used.

@ChrisR the shank is way too large, I guess if might work with the long part sticking up.

@JasonP I'm a little confused as to what you're referring to. You currently have the Blue Ox SwayPro System # BXW1500 ?
