Weight Distribution System for 2019 Forest River NoBo 19.5 Plus Brake Controller


Hi folks, Looking for a Weight Distribution System/anti-sway hitch for a Forest River NoBo 19.5. Ill be towing with a 2019 Nissan Frontier SV FWD. The tongue weight of the NoBo is 365lbs. and the UVW is 3,456 lbs. If you could let me know what you recommend for good, better and best that would be great. Also looking for a brake controller for the trailer as well. Thanks in advance for the help,

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. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.

The Fastway e2 part # FA94-00-0600 would be a good solution. It has the correct tongue weight range of 200 to 600 lbs and features 2 points of friction sway control which helps prevent sway from passing vehicles/wind.

Slightly better I'd go with the Husky Centerline part # HT32215. Same tongue weight range but has trunnion bars which have better ground clearance and sway control that's works better and is more proactive and stopping before it starts.

Best solution is the Strait Line kit part # RP66082 which has same tongue weight range but also has the best sway control that works to fight sway before it starts in the most efficient way.

For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

So the easiest to install brake controller that also works really well is the Curt Echo Mobile part # C51180. Basically this just plugs into an active 7-way and once you sync it to your phone it's ready to go. This brake controller is proportional which means it senses the amount of deceleration your tow vehicle is applying and applies the trailer brakes in a relative way.
