Weight Distribution

When you couple your trailer to your tow vehicle, the added weight causes your tow vehicle to "teeter-totter" over the rear axle. The front of the tow vehicle raises, and the rear sinks. Hazards associated with driving a trailer without weight distribution include loss of steering control, braking difficulties, and hitch dragging.

The Equal-i-zer® hitch combats such hazards by providing proper weight distribution. It creates something like a bridge between the tow vehicle and trailer, helping them work together like one unit instead of two. With the Equal-i-zer hitch the trailers' weight can be safely and easily distributed to all axles of the vehicle.


Before using your hitch, the sway was unsafe at any speed or road condition. After installing the Equal-i-zer hitch, the sway was non-existent and I now have a feel of control over the trailer instead of the trailer controlling the tow vehicle.
