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.


We had head winds, cross winds, rain, snow, sleet, and hail. Eighteen wheelers meeting us on two lane roads or passing us on freeways had no effect on our stability at all and we had absolutely no fish tailing. The Equal-i-zer is a 100% improvement over the (conventional weight distribution) hitch.
