Toyota FJ Cruiser Weight Distribution Questions and Answers


  • Weight Distribution for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2015 Airstream 22FB Travel Trailer
  • First, as long as the gross trailer weight and hitch weight are within the capacities of your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser then it will be fine. Check your vehicle owners manual to make sure it is compatible with weight distribution. I know that many trailer dealerships will sell and install some . . . lesser quality weight distribution systems. They work but they do not work as well as other systems. So to at least take a look at your options I can go over some different models with you. First,...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2016 LXE Aliner
  • If you think your tongue weight will be at least 250 lbs the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-0600 will work great. It sounds like you are really close if not over the figure. It's hard to come up with a WD system for a lower rated setup though. Most applications with that low of a tongue weight either have hitches not rated for WD systems or the WD system just isn't needed. To install a ball you'll need a thin walled socket like # ALL643216. For a 2 inch ball you would want...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2,900 Pound Trailer
  • Anytime the trailer weight is at least 50 percent of the vehicle weight OR if the vehicle sags at the back with the trailer connected, you would benefit from a weight distribution system. To determine the correct system for your application you will need to know the total tongue weight. The total tongue weight can be calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, loaded and ready to tow, then add to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I...

  • Weight Distribution with Sway Control for a 3,500 Pound Trailer and 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • For your trailer with up to 500 pounds tongue weight you can use a system that is rated for 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight. But first, when calculating tongue weight you go by the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If that puts you under 600 pounds still then I recommend # RP66082. This is the same system that you referenced, # RP66072, but it comes with a shank whereas RP66072 does not....

  • Brake Controller, 7-Way, and Weight Distribution for a 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2015 Evolution E3
  • First, for your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser, let's look at 7-Way connectors and brake controllers. To add both you will need 4- and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. Your 4-Way will plug into the 7-Way and then you just have to hardwire the remaining wires and brake controller. All the wiring you will need is included in the kit. For a brake controller I recommend the P2, # 90885. It is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. I have included some helpful links that cover the ETBC7 installation. For...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with Tongue Weight 600 lb
  • For a loaded tongue weight of between 400 to 600 lbs like what your trailer has the Reese Strait Line kit part # RP66083 would be an excellent option. It has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs and features the only sway control available that works to fight sway before it starts. For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

  • How to Choose the Correct Weight Distribution System for 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • There are going to be drawbacks in selecting the wrong weight distribution system unit; and the measurement that matters is tongue weight instead of total capacity. The Fastway # FA92-00-0600 may work for you, but in order to choose the best weight distribution system, you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser. To...

  • What is the Towing Capacity for a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • According to the owners manual for the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser the maximum towing capacity of the vehicle is 5,000 pounds so you would not be able to tow the tiny house with that particular vehicle. I recommend renting a 1-ton truck (Ford F-350, Chevy/GMC 3500, Ram 3500) but make sure to verify the towing capacity and tongue weight capacity with the rental agency before renting it.

  • Hitch, Weight Distribution System, Sway Control, Brake Controller, Wiring for 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • Weight Distribution is a good idea if you are pulling at least 50 percent of your vehicles weight. Many good WD systems come with sway control, too, so we will look at those. First, you will need a hitch. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13367, which is a custom fit item for your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, unless your FJ is equipped with the auxiliary fuel tank. The hitch will bolt to the frame and this one will install in about 30 minutes. I have included a link to the instructions...

  • Weight Distribution System for 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser Pulling 25-foot Travel Trailer
  • In order to use a weight distribution system on your FJ Cruiser its hitch will have to specifically be rated for use with such systems. This will be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. All three of the hitches we offer for your FJ can be seen on the link provided and all are rated for use with weight distribution which gives them a maximum gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity of 6000-lbs. I was able to verify the 5000-lb maximum tow rating for your FJ Cruiser. This 5000-lb vehicle...

  • Can Weight Distribution System Be Used On 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser With OEM Hitch?
  • I checked the owners manual for your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser and there is nothing keeping you from using a weight distribution system on your vehicle. The towing capacity of your vehicle is rated at 5000 lbs, and tongue weight is rated to be a 500 lb capacity. The most important thing when looking at a weight distribution system is the total tongue weight. This is the tongue weight of your completely loaded trailer (which is typically 10-15% of the total towing weight of your trailer),...

  • Brake Controller, Wiring and Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • We have everything you will need. Let's start with wiring and a brake controller first. Since you have a bad 4-way currently you would want to replace that with part # 118405 which is a confirmed fit. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. For a...

  • Can Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System be Used in Slippery Weather Conditions
  • The Curt TruTrack weight distribution system # C17500 does not have the same restrictions as bar-style sway control unit such as # 17200. Inclement weather will not be an issue and you will not have to remove the spring bars on the system if such weather were to occur while you are towing.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control for 2007 FJ Cruiser Pulling 3700 Lb TT
  • As a first step, I would examine your factory hitch to ensure it is capable of being used with weight distribution. The hitch should have a sticker that lists both a towing and a weight distribution capacity. Once you confirm that your factory hitch is compatible with weight distribution, you would then choose a system whose rating is greater than the fully loaded trailer tongue weight plus the weight of anything stowed in the vehicle cargo area behind the rear axle, or total tongue...
