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.


I wish to say that I am delighted with the performance of the hitch. The trailer acted as one with our heavy van tow vehicle. Cross winds, mountain roads, and winding back roads were no trouble at all with this well behaved setup. Hookup and unhooking are as easy and straight forward as advertised, and the whole system works, if anything, better than advertised. Great work. This hitching system is the best bargain on the market and is superior to anything anywhere near its cost.
