Nothing gets the heart pounding quite like an out-of-control trailer. In the world of bumper towing, relying solely on the ball mount to get heavy loads from point A to point B can be a bit dicey. Add in excessive tongue weight and unevenly distributed cargo, and you’re practically begging for trouble.

Even a properly loaded trailer can become unsettled when passing semis, encountering crosswinds or descending steep grades. For years, weight-distribution hitches have solved these problems and improved the conventional towing experience for thousands of truck owners in the process.

What Is a Weight-Distributing Hitch?

Weight-distribution hitches are genius, but at the same time, they are relatively simple. They employ friction to transfer the weight of the trailer forward, off the tongue, toward the front of the tow vehicle. In addition, some of the tongue weight is distributed back onto the trailer axles. With more weight over the front axle of the tow vehicle, the towing combination sits level, and braking and steering performance are optimized.

In recent times, weight-distributing hitches with built-in sway control have become all the rage—and for good reason. Whether it’s through the use of chains, trunnion-style spring bars or round spring bars, their aim is to control trailer sway by quelling it before it ever has the opportunity to get out of hand.
