Curt - Weight Distribution - C17100 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Curt 8-inch adjustable weight distribution shank. Now, this shank is designed to slide into your hitch receiver, and it does provide the attachment point for your weight distribution system's head assembly. This one here is designed for use with the Curt weight distribution systems.You have the seven holes here, so it'll give you seven adjustment points for attaching the head assembly to. The holes are spaced at 1.25 inches apart center to center, so it'll let you level your trailer with your tow vehicle. Those offer drop or rise positions to fit your application. It is a nice black powder coat steel, helps resist rust and corrosion, and if you notice, it is a solid shank, has the gussets for strength, and it's got some weight to it because it is solid.Application again, this is for 2 inch x 2 inch trailer hitch receivers.

Weight capacity is 15,000 lbs. Tongue weight capacity is 1500 lbs. Do want to give you a few measurements on this. The overall total height of this going to be right at 9.5 inches tall, and we had mentioned the holes. They are spaced, center to center, 1.25 inches apart.

Maximum drop, if it's used in the round bar system in this position is going to be 2.5 inches. If it's used with a trunnion bar system, it's 0.5 inch. Maximum rise, in other words if you flip it over, for a round bar system is 6 inches. For a trunnion bar, be 6.5 inches. A few measurements on the shank itself.

If we measure from the center of the hitch pin hole here to the center of the adjustment holes, you're going to be right at 8 inches. If you measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the vertical adjustment shank, it's going to be right at 7 inches. If you measure it from the center of the hitch pin hole from the furthest edge of this vertical adjustment shank, it's 9 inches.That should do it for the review on the Curt 8-inch adjustable weight distribution shank.
