What is a weight distribution hitch used for?
Ever experienced unnerving trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness, less traction or misaligned head lamps? This is often caused because the weight of the trailer causes increased weight on the rear wheels of the towing vehicle thereby creating an imbalance between all wheels.
Overtime this also causes a reduction in fuel economy and uneven tyre wear.
When using a Weight Distribution Hitch the load is evenly distributed through the vehicle's chassis to all four wheels.
