Weight distribution systems are designed to put some of the tongue weight on the front axle of the tow vehicle. They push the front of the tow vehicle down, increasing stability, control and breaking.
I ended up getting the Andersen Hitches system, found out about it on this forum.
Finally got a chance to use it last weekend and it works great! I had used the Reese spring bar system in the past, they work but the bounce and noise is annoying. This system eliminates that, plus it has built in anti-sway. Great system, they finally built a better mouse trap...

Here is a link: https://www.andersenhitches.com/Cata...e-wd-kits.aspx

135 " to forward most part of chock. I am using a no name equalizer made in China. Came with my first toy hauler.I have a friction sway bar but with the 3/4 ton Silverado have had no reason to use it. The 26RR pulls like a dream compared to the WP22 I had earlier.

I'm looking at the equalizer with a 1200lb tongue weight capacity. I'm also going to invest in a tongue weight scale so I can precisely load the trailer the correct way. When you got your whole rig weighed was it pretty accurate to the 5000lb rating the manufacture says?

1200 is light. With any water in grey or black tank will easily surpass that. I did not weigh it empty but with no water, 900 ' bike, full propane, and equipment I will always carry less clothes, food etc I came in a 6990, 1250 of that was tongue weight.That is why I moved the bike back. Weight should be in the 700 to 1000 range.

If you get the true Equalizer hitch you will be needing to have chains moved because the metal of hitch protrudes back so much that with sharp turns the chains will pinch. Click image for larger version

I checked mine after seeing post. I have the EAZ-lite hitch with the round bars, there is no need to move the chain. Just for thought

Yes it is only the equalizer brand. My brother has a non equalizer brand WDH and do not have an issue. His is more of a y configuration were the equalizer is more of an oblong shape.

If your goal is to achieve 700-1000 lb tongue weight than 1200lb hitch would be ideal, no?

I've heard the andersen system doesn't distribute enough weight to the front axle of TV
