Adding a weight distribution hitch from Curt to your truck or SUV will provide you with better control while towing trailers, campers, or boats. Curt weight distribution hitches do this by using leverage to more evenly distribute the weight of the load to your truck or SUV's rear wheels and the trailer's wheels.

By spreading the load out, you gain a more stable ride and better control for safer braking and steering ability. Curt weight distribution hitches include everything you need to tow. Add the appropriately sized Curt hitch ball which is not included and you are ready to hit the road.

Curt offers either round bar or trunnion style weight distribution hitches and backs them with a one year warranty. Each Curt weight distribution system is made in the USA by Curt Manufacturing.
