Weight Distribution / Sway Control

Weight Distribution

A weight distribution hitch transfers weight otherwise concentrated at the hitch ball and distributes it more evenly toward the tow vehicle and toward the trailer, resulting in a more level ride with more control and stability, better braking, less strain on vehicle. Most towing guides published by vehicle manufacturers list a higher towing capacity for vehicles equipped with weight distribution hitches compared to towing on the ball without using a weight distribution hitch.

Husky offers a variety of weight distribution hitches including round, trunnion and our award-winning Center Line Towing System. Husky weight distribution hitches feature:

  • Unique design for reduced installation time
  • Open hitch head design for easy access to hitch ball shank
  • Hitch head with built-in sway control ball platform
  • Hitch head compatible with different spring bar capacities for maximum versatility and reduced inventory
  • Black polyester finish resists rust and corrosion

  • Interchangeable spring bars that fit left or right sides of hitch head

Sway Control

Where weight distribution addresses up and down concerns, sway control promotes stability by slowing side to side movement often caused by windy conditions & passing vehicles. The Center Line System brings a new level to sway control by suppressing movement and bringing corrective return pressures to bear to re-center the trailer. Other Husky sway control components can be purchased separately or in a kit along with the weight distribution system.
