Recommended Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System for Travel Trailer With 640 lb Tongue Weight


Do you recommend the blue ox bxw1000 wd for a 2021 Keystone cougar 24SABWE with a tongue weight of 640lbs? I will tow this with a 2020 GMC sierra 1500 4x4 with a 5.3l engine.


Expert Reply:

The Blue Ox # BXW1000 SwayPro is designed for trailers with tongue weights ranging from 750-1000 lbs. If the fully loaded and ready to pull trailer tongue weight of your travel trailer is less than 750 lbs, you'll have a pretty rough ride and the system won't be as effective as it should be. I'll link to an article that shows how to determine the actual as-towed tongue weight of your camper.

If the as-towed trailer tongue weight IS 640 lbs (as opposed to the dry tongue weight) then you'll want to go with a lower-rated system such as the # BXW0750 which is rated for tongue weights of 550-750 lbs.

Neither system includes the trailer ball. For a 2 inch ball, you'll need # A-90 or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

If you use the provided link, you can see a demonstration video for the SwayPro.
