With the absence of proper weight distribution the rear of a tow vehicle is lowered which then becomes hazardous. Such hazards include braking difficulties, hitch dragging, and decreased steering control. This can be entirely avoided by providing proper weight distribution. With the application of weight distribution hitches, also known as Equalizer hitches, this can effortlessly be attained. The weight of trailer is distributed by shifting this weight, evenly, to the trailer and tow vehicle's axles which, in turn, provides level towing, stabilizing the load. Not only does this reduce sway but it allows for a much smoother safer ride as well as providing increased steering control and eliminating hitch drag. Below are a variety of equalizer hitches to accommodate your specific needs.
