Weight distribution hitch installation involves leveling the trailer, measuring vehicle and trailer height, mounting the hitch head, shank, spring bars and hookup brackets, and adjusting the weight distribution hitch as needed.
Are weight distribution hitches worth it?
If your towing capacity far exceeds your trailer weight, a distribution hitch would be overkill. Otherwise, if youve got a bumper pull and your load is anywhere near the upper level capacity for your tow vehicle, a weight distribution hitch will help ensure a safe trip.
Can I backup with a weight distribution hitch?
Yes, the Equal-i-zer hitch is designed to allow you to back up and take tight turns with the hitch hooked up. You want to make sure your hitch has a max trailer weight higher than your trailer GVWR. Some trailers wont list a GVWR but instead an Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW) and Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC).
