SwayPro® Weight Distributing Hitch

Imagine this: you and your family have loaded your travel trailer and are heading to your vacation destination. On the road, you are about to pass an 18-wheeler. As the truck passes, your trailer begins to sway back and forth or fishtail. If you have ever experienced this, you know how scary it can be and that maintaining control can be quite difficult. Trailer sway is one of the main causes for accidents involving trailers and, for many people, it is the reason they put their trailer away for good after only a few trips. The good news is that, with the use of our hitch, the SwayPro, you can prevent sway in any type of weather.

"I wanted to tell you that after pulling a camper around for about 20 years now, I’m now using a Blue Ox Sway pro system. I had struggled with my Rockwood for over a year now as I had more of an entry level system that had come off of my old Wildwood unit when I traded it in.

I had purchased my camper at Leach last year. I knew it was time to do something different as I felt that I did not have good control of the pickup or the camper and thought that camping wasn’t going to be much fun if I struggled to make it to my destination. I had done some research on sway control and weight distribution for a couple of months but I was still confused I finally stopped in and visited with Bob at Leach Camper and he really took the time to explain the differences in yourproduct compared to competitor products. He spoke highly of the team in Pender and the support that Blue Ox provides Leach.

I knew it was time to do something so I took the leap of faith and purchased the Sway Pro and Bob at Leach Camper took the time to install it on my camper as well as go on a short test trip to try it out. I was very pleased with the results and took my camper on a 70 mile journey. I was so impressed with the improvement using the Blue Ox Sway pro I called Bob the next day and I thanked him for his recommendation and time . It is so much nicer to have the control back while towing my camper and not feeling like my next move may be my last.

Your team makes a good product, its engineered very well , and most importantly it provides piece of mind!"

What Causes Trailer Sway?

Trailer sway occurs when a force from the side of the trailer, such as wind, causes the trailer to sway side to side. Once a trailer begins moving in this back and forth motion, it can quickly get out of control. Trailer sway can also occur as a result of what is referred to as “bow wind” from a semi-truck as it passes, creating an intense and sudden gust of wind. Uneven road conditions in rural areas or construction zones are also a common cause of trailer sway. While drivers may be able to avoid these bumpy areas of road, wind is not a factor that can be changed. Whether we like it or not, sway happens.

Stop Trailer Sway Before it Starts

SwayPro by Blue Ox is a weight distributing hitch that prevents trailer sway. SwayPro relies on tension to keep its spring bars taut and the brackets ensure that pressure from the spring bars will keep the trailer in line with your towing vehicle. SwayPro uses weight distribution technology with built-in trailer sway prevention. It is computer designed and geometrically optimized to ensure the highest quality trailer sway prevention and weight distribution without extra adjustments. Sway prevention is built into the hitch head, which has an open design, allowing for easy access to tighten the hitch ball. With this built-in sway prevention, in the event that your trailer would sway, one of the sway bars becomes more loaded than the other, keeping the trailer centered and in line with the towing vehicle. This built-in sway prevention is safer than traditional friction sway controls that are designed to slow down the trailer sway, but does not bring the trailer back in alignment with the towing vehicle.

Easy to Use Design

SwayPro is designed with the user in mind, making it the most user-friendly trailer sway prevention system on the market today. Enjoy the ease of quickly hooking up and disconnecting the trailer. There is no need to disconnect prior to backing up. There is no need for friction pads, resulting in a smooth and quiet ride. There are no additional clips or pins thanks to the self-locking spring bars that automatically lock into place by simply rotating the bar 90 degrees. The spring steel bars are able to flex for optimal sway prevention and weight distribution. SwayPro has a limited lifetime warranty. The SwayPro hitch is compatible with a variety of towing vehicles from minivans to large ¾ ton pickups. Simply determine what type of vehicle and hitch head you will be using, the type of trailer coupler your travel trailer is equipped with, and select the appropriate tongue weight.

Stop Sway Before It Starts

Trunnions on each side of the Swaypro™ hitch head employ a caster effect, working with spring bars, to constantly push inward, keeping the trailer in line.
