The CURT weight distribution hitch is a specialized towing system that provides improved vehicle and trailer control by leveling the trailer and more evenly distributing its tongue weight across the trailer''s and vehicle''s axles. Weight distribution hitches are commonly used on travel trailers and campers but can also be applied to other large loads.CURT WD hitches come with a 2" x 2" shank and are compatible with class 3, 4 and most 5 trailer hitches, including Xtra Duty and Commercial Duty (2 1/2" replacement WD shank may be required), as well as some RV trailer hitches. While a weight distribution hitch will increase the gross trailer weight capacity of most trailer hitches, the vehicle''s weight carrying capacity must be taken into consideration before towing a heavier trailer (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).This round bar weight distribution hitch features a heavy-duty formed head and round spring bars constructed from forged steel. It offers a gross trailer weight capacity up to 8,000 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 800 lbs. It also includes hook-up brackets, spring bar safety chains and a pin and clip. To protect this hitch from scratching, chipping, rust and UV damage, it also comes with a durable black powder coat finish. A trailer ball must be purchased separately.

Great Quality
The hitch arrived fast and in great condition. The quality of the product is second to none. Curt’s customer support was helpful to answer questions. The design not only uses the bars for sway control, but also the hitch pivot point. The hitch does make some noise when turning, but is much less than other hitches with this design. The ball comes installed from the factory.

Excellent Product with Excellent Service
Great product! Works just as described and was shipped to my door very fast with a great price and service from CARiD. Hitch was easy to install and leveled out my truck when pulling my toy hauler. The anti-sway is nice to have in cross winds. Very happy!

Round Spring Weight Distribution Hitch
Looks good does the job. Fast delivery. The shipping box was destroyed and held together with plastic wrap. Need better shipping container. A card board box is not the answer for something this heavy.

TruTrack Trunnion Bar
Awesome product, barely any sway, I should have bought the 12000 lbs one instead the 10000. Setup RAM 1500 2014 and Salem 2013 TT. It was a bit hard to level it but got it after some back and forward couple days not bad at all.

Good Value
Product arrived as ordered, however the components were very heavy and it was shipped only in manufacturer box. In shipping the box came apart and was strapped together. All parts did make it through shipping. Unit installed easy enough for moderate skills. Installed and works as designed.
