Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have had some close calls with your trailer getting pushed around by the wind and need built-in sway control to help reduce movement
  • Tow a few times a year and don't want to pay an arm and leg for weight distribution
  • Have a trailer with 1,000 lbs – 1,500 lbs of tongue weight

No, if you:

  • Don't have the time or patience to fiddle with the head adjustment to get it just right
  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns
  • Have a lifted truck and need a decent drop

Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.

Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.

To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.

Integrated Active Sway Control

The TruTrack weight distribution system works to stop trailer sway before it begins. This is achieved primarily thanks to the specially designed system head.

TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings in Detents

On top of the trunnions, there are spring-loaded ball bearings that rest in detents built into the underside of the head. As you travel down the road normally, these ball bearings help to keep the trailer in a straight line by applying pressure inside these detents.

TruTrack Spring-Loaded Ball Bearings out of Detents

When sway occurs, the trunnions move inside the head, causing the ball bearings to come out of these detents. When this happens, the ball bearings ride along internal grooves in the head as they work to return to the detents to snap the trunnion back in place. This action effectively returns your trailer to center.

TruTrack Spring Bar Bracket

Additional sway control is created by the spring bar brackets. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also permits a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. Allowing the spring bars to hang freely also minimizes the tension described earlier. This limits your system's ability to hold your trailer in line behind your tow vehicle.

Not only do the brackets on the TruTrack work to constantly hold your trailer in line, but they also supply friction to force it back into place should any sway occur. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.

Forged Steel Spring Bars

The TruTrack's spring bars are made from forged steel, giving them a distinct advantage over typical cast steel bars. Forging is a process where thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is more resilient to impacts and is stronger in terms of shear strength. Simply put, the TruTrack's spring bars do a superior job of helping to hold your trailer in line because of their added strength and durability.

Simple Spring Bar Setup

TruTrack Spring Bar Install

The support brackets of the TruTrack easily clamp onto your trailer frame to provide the attachment points for the weight distribution spring bars. To position the spring bars on the brackets during hookup, simply use the included snap-up lever to lift each bar onto an L-shaped bracket. Then secure the bars in place with the included L-pins and clips.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (510 Customer Reviews)

Built-in, active sway control keeps your trailer in line by using specific tension points and steel-on-steel resistance. System head is adjustable so you can easily achieve the proper tilt. 2-5/16" Ball included.


This product made a huge difference when pulling my camper with the additional 1000# of tongue weight when my ATV is loaded. I am pulling a rough total of 4700# with my expedition and pulls very well. I had to make quick change on the interstate at 75mph, the camper wanted to sway but was quickly brought straight behind the vehicle in seconds. What could of been a disaster, with the sway control made everything safe. Install is technical, I just had the RV company install when I was picking up my camper,short on time and Best $200 ever spent. Went with the 1500# tongue weight, since I do have about 1400+ when fully loaded. With setup done correctly, weight is distributed evenly. About a 1/4" difference between front and rear of vehicle.


The maiden voyage for both the Curt Tru Track hitch and the Momentum 28G trailer was a 350 mile trip on both interstate and two lane state highway to Oregons Wallowa Lake. The hitch performed as advertised. I highly recommend. I also recommend watching the video on installation that etrailer supplies. Much better than the written instructions


What a great purchase, easy to install and after an adjustment the 7800 lb dry weight, 35 foot camper tows like a dream. Instructions were clear and simple even for a camper towing newbie. This unit was picked due to the possibility of getting a heavier camper later and not wanting to buy another hitch. Service from etrailer was outstanding and the price was the cheapest I found.

Still happy with this hitch. Bought a bigger truck so had to purchase a longer shank but couldn’t be happier with the product.
Larry - 07/02/2022


I waited over a year to make sure I did all I could do. It all started with bending my brackets on the first trip. I rebuilt them to my liking, a little home welding, but still not happy as I have not leveled my tow vehicle. I weighed my hitch loaded at 1400 lbs, and with all the adjustment this hitch has, I can't get a level ride. I even bought the drop shank ($xxx), and my camper is stightly nose down, hitch adjusted to the max, I still feel like my hitch is not handling the load. I can not recommend this hitch for anything over 1000 lbs tongue weight.

In the description this product notes that it is not for huge s as the max is only a half inch. If you are not level, this can cause other problems like the bending of the brackets. I would recommend item # EQ64FR
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 16,000 lbs GTW, 1,600 lbs TW
. It is the right weight you need and it has a max of 3 inches. It includes everything you need besides item # EQ70-00-4800
Thin Walled Socket for Equal-i-zer Hitches
which is recommended for hitch ball installation. It has a lifetime warranty as well.

Your shipping department needs help in packing your product so it gets to its destination in the way it is complete and not damaged. Also I am a Disabled Viet Nam Veteran who had plans for this Holiday Weekend that you completely DESTROYED. THANK YOU. Why can’t you ship over night

I sincerely apologize that the weight distribution system arrived damaged. I know that our shipping department diligently works to package orders so that they will arrive in good condition. I will have our customer service department assist you.

Heavy duty and very well made!! I pull a 33ft. T/T with 2 slides, Curt Tru Track system works very well. Compared to similar style weight distribution systems, Curt is definitely a better value!!

Its been a year since ordering Curt Tru Track W.D.S. I can say well worth the money, works well! Since then I we upgraded our TT in length, 3 slides, and 1500lbs heavier. CURT wd works flawless!
Ryan - 03/03/2022


I the hitch looks well built. I think I was sent an older model of this hitch because it came with the spacers instead of the Cam for adjusting. I wish I would have gotten the one with the CAM to adjust it. It took me a while to figure out how to put it together because of the spacer and the wording on the instructions. I do like the hitch but if I ordered it again I would request that I get the model with the cam for adjusting.


Pretty happy with this set up. It was a little confusing to initially set up but overall after setup it's super simple allows for backing and turning and seems to hold trailer in line well.


The Curt C17501 weight distribution hitch assembly arrived today 10/30/2021 via UPS packed in a large box. The box was severely damaged with a hole/tear midships. Several of the assembly pieces were missing. Please send me two (2) half inch by four inch carriage bolts with lock nuts attached. Also missing are two (2) clips that secure the small L shaped retainers that fit near the end of the spring bars. I will call etrailer on Monday 11/1/2021 to arrange for you to send me the missing fasteners. Will review hitch assembly and install process when I get to it. Thank you.

Customer service will resolve this for you.

Towing a 36 foot forest river rv with a 1300lbs TW 9000 GTW this hitch exceeded expectations. Easy to install and the Trunnion bars are longer than the e2 system I took off. This was a game changer I passed tractor trailers at 55 and did not sway or move at all. It was windy to today and no problem maintaining speed without sway or bouncing. I see why the dealership gives the e2 system for free when you buy an rv. Worth every penny I spent on it, just wish I did it form the start.


Bad design and very hard to install. Had four different install iterations to setup properly. But I still lost one of my spring bar on a rough patch of road which resulted in the hitch twisting and bottoming out and scrapping the highway. Tried to buy replacement spring bar on the road, and half of the Curt dealers (listed on Curt Mfgr website) were no longer in business and and the other half don't carry any spare parts for the Curt "TruTrack Weight Distribution System." I Had to remove hitch and replace with an alternate brand on the road!
When I contacted Curt and etrailer after the trip about the warranty, they both provided no warranty support. Also, Curt will not sale me the Castle nut and carriage bolt that was scrapped on the road (see attached picture). Only option is to buy the whole head for over $XXX. That's ridiculous!

Bad design, no support on the road, no warranty support. I will never buy Curt product ever again!


The hitch came in but was missing the bars. I emailed them and you sent them right out. The hitch is working great!


The curt anti sway hitch performs better than anything I’ve ever used.
You never see the trailer behind you.
The weight dist is awesome.
We have f350 /lance truck camper and 26 ft car trailer
In tow.
I can’t picture anything working better.


Great product. Using it on a 14K bumper pull trailer that is set up with a diesel powered air compressor and Greener Blast Technologies GBT 760 Slurry Blaster for mobile abrasive blasting. Total weight of trailer setup is just under the rated limits for my truck. Took quite a bit of measuring and adjusting to get to the final setup but it is great and doing the intended purpose of moving weight to the front axle. No way I could safely pull this load without this hitch system.


Overall a nice hitch for the price. The anti sway features seem to work well. Although, I would say that the L brackets that hold the bars in place on the hanger brackets are not very robust.


fast shipping but box was ripped open during shipment missing parts but called etrailer and miss cathryn got it all taken care of for me havent been able to hook it up yet and try it but by the looks of it it will do the job

after using this hitch setup all last year its been great very good setup mfor my trailer much safer than before and very stable and i tow my trailer long distances and i feel very comfortable doing it as a matter of fact i had a guy cut in front of in in atlanta comming home had to lock up the brakes and this hitch setup kept everything straight its a very good hitch

Exactly what I ordered and expected. Was delivered when promised and promptly. UPS however left it in the yard and not on my door step/porch. That's a UPS issue not etrailer's fault.


Excellent product, was as described and not to difficult to install. Only needed to adjust brackets one to level unit out. Would recommend this product to anyone who needs a weight distribution hitch.
Will be using this on my 2014 extended cad f250, to pull my 36 ft keystone Laredo rv.
Many who wander, are not lost!


So far so good. Pulled on a windy day and the wind would push truck and trailer to the shoulder but it stayed straight and came back with no issues. Happy so far.


Product if fine package came missing 2 washers

Oh no, that is not good at all. I have sent this information over to our customer service department for them to get in touch with you.

Good trailer hitch. I was using the basic chain weight distributing hitch with added sway control. This is much better.

Yes good hitch. Works good no problems with it.
Norman - 01/21/2019


Since purchase I have only been able to use it twice. I had pulled it right after purchase and setting up and was not setup the greatest so there was still some tweaking. I tried re adjusting everything before the second pull and it was better and I did like it that second time using the hitch. I haven’t been able to use it again because I did some more adjusting but I had the trailer in the shop back in July 2021 and hasn’t moved since coming out of shop. I’ve liked it and has done what I expected even after the trial and error periods and still trying to adjust.


Having never used a weight displacement hitch before. This made a huge difference in towing a large trailer. I will never tow without one again. This unit is well made. The instructions are straight forward. Installation is as the instructions show. I highly recommend this unit. Price was affordable, and shipping was fast.

This is a very well built hitch system. I would highly reccommend it to anyone towing a trailer.
Patrick - 02/23/2019


I needed a weight distribution system and quickly realized that Curt was the best around. You get what you pay for so why not get the best!? Very simple to install and with the correct routine maintenance this will last forever, Shipping was fast and box was In good shape when it arrived.


etrailer really came to the rescue!!!! I received the package and it clearly had been return and was repacked. Always a concern in opening the box not knowing if all the parts are there. Sure enough there was a part missing. I contacted customer service which was very pleasant and easy and the representative made it very easy to get the part that was missing. It arrived promptly and exactly what was missing. I had considered ordering from [on;ine] but wanted to give another vendor a chance. Initially i was regretting my decision when the part was missing but in the end I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING ETRAILER OVER [ONLINE} ANY DAY!!!!

  • Why is There Wide Tongue Weight Range for Curt Weight Distribution System part # C17501
    Weight distribution systems have tongue weight ranges that they are designed to work with. Ideally you want your setup's loaded tongue weight to fall right in the middle of the range. The part # C17501 that you referenced has a tongue weight range of 1,000 - 1,500 lbs. The spring bars are adjustable in how much spring bar tension they can provide and that is why the range is as wide as it seems.

  • Selecting a Weight Distribution System for a 2005 Ford King Ranch Pulling a SS2300 Weekend Warrior
    For weight distribution you want it to be rated to handle the tongue weight of your trailer when it's loaded. The tongue weight listed the trailer's spec sheet is typically going to be its dry tongue weight because the loaded tongue weight varies depending on how much is loaded and how it's loaded.

  • Adjusting Trailer Mounting Brackets for Curt Weight Distribution System
    Most weight distribution systems have a bit of a range for where the frame brackets can be attached to the trailer in relation to the hitch ball to allow for some wiggle room.

    You really need to get the spring bar hangers where they were designed to be on the frame for the spring bars to operate like they are supposed to. I suspect the issue you are having where it seems like they aren't able to provide enough spring bar tension is because the brackets are too far back and they don't have the amount of leverage they need to work properly. Since you have interference on your trailer frame where they need to install you can bolt them directly to the trailer frame...
