Weight Distribution System that Can be Used with 10,000 lb Trailer When Loaded and Unloaded


Im looking for a weight distribution hitch with sway control for my 8.5x24 enclosed cargo trailer that can work both loaded and unloaded. 3500lbs unloaded, up to 1000lbs loaded. I need sway control both loaded and unloaded What do you advise?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Since that's a really wide range the best possible scenario would be a weight distribution system rated for when the trailer is loaded like the Equal-i-zer part # EQ37120ET which allows you to remove the spring bars so that the trailer can be towed unloaded as well. WD systems have to be rated for the loaded tongue weight of the trailer and they also have to be set up with correct spring bar tension too so there wouldn't be a way to cover both weights that you mentioned.

The process of setting spring bar tension with a system is tedious enough that you can't really change it on the fly.
