Adding Spring Bars for Lower Capacity Tongue Weight on a Weight Distribution System


I have a 14k equalizer 4 pt hitch, My trailer is a over length of 30 ft dry weight 6100lbs 7500 max travel trailer towed with a f150. Will this hitch still work for me?


Expert Reply:

The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW item # EQ37140ET will still work for you but it is going to be an extremely rough and stiff ride. That system is way overrated for your 7,500 lbs maximum weight trailer. Even at the high end of your tongue weight you would still be almost 300 lbs below that systems tongue weight capacity. I recommend purchasing the Replacement Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - Qty 2 item # EQ90-01-1299. These have a 1,200 lbs maximum tongue weight and you can use them with your current systems head and brackets.
