Weight Distributing Hitch, Equal-i-zer,receiver hitch for trailer control

Andersen No-Sway Weight Distributing 

AndersenWD Hitch 4-in w frame, bgd

I found these all new weight distributing hitches at SEMA a couple years ago. They are like nothing I’ve seen before. I’m in the horse industry and WDH isn’t used much in the horse industry because of the time and hassle of hooking up the hitch head and lifting up the spring arms. Read my original review

Andersen, famous for their Rapid Hitch adjustable aluminum drawbars, have changed the industry. This new system has the best in sway control for bumper pull trailers, does distribute weight to all axles and is quiet. Oh yeah, and they are fast to hook and unhook. Watch my two YouTube video’s of what I’ve discovered.

Watch my video’s and see what everyone’s talking about with this revolutionary hitch for quiet sway control and trailer safety….

After 2-years of development and road-testing, Andersen Hitches releases their new Anti-Sway, Anti-Bounce Weight Distribution Hitch. Instead of just improving on current models, Andersen completely redesigned Weight Distribution…leaving the competition in the dust.
The Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch available with 4″ or 8″ drop/rise doesn’t just raise the bar, it sets it –changing the industry forever! Combining modern materials, technology and innovation, it’s the simplest, quietest, and most advanced weight distribution hitch on the road today. This is a first in the industry giving trailer owners the best anti-sway AND anti-bounce with the only true Motion-Dampening™ system around. People are shocked at how smooth and quiet the ride is compared to anything else out on the market today!
Weighing in under 60 lbs, this good-looking but tough work horse is rated up 14,000 lbs GTWR (1400 lbs tongue) to handle your heavy-duty trailer needs. It also doubles as a standard ball mount if you have the need to tow without any weight distribution.

Equal-i-zer offers a unique two-in-one design that combines weight distribution with sway control in one easy to use unit. The simple design has a built-in sway control to remove the risk of sway problems caused by passing vehicles, cross winds, and other towing hazards. Equal-i-zer is safe, simple, and easy to use.

Towing a trailer doesn’t need to be a tense and fearful experience. It doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn’t have to be filled with safety concerns and woes. The right hitch makes all the difference. It can turn a good trailer into a great trailer . . . and a great experience. Simply put — the Equal-i-zer is the most affordable and best way to trailer.  Email questions…

Sway Control Brackets:
Rigid trailer attachments work with friction sway control to eliminate trailer sway. Brackets are height adjustable to control the amount of weight distribution tension on the spring arms.

Spring Arms:
The spring arms serve two purposes. When raised onto the sway control brackets they transfer trailer tongue weight evenly to the tow vehicle. They also work with the friction sway control to stop trailer sway.

Downward Pressure:
Downward pressure from trailer tongue increases friction sway control. Trailer hitch ball mounts here.

Upward Pressure:
Sway control brackets distribute weight by maintaining upward pressure on spring arms. The amount of pressure on the spring arms is a factor of trailer tongue weight and vehicle suspension. The friction sway control utilizes this pressure to control trailer sway.

Friction sway control:
Friction is enhanced by downward pressure from trailer tongue and upward pressure on spring arms. These opposing pressures come together to create an unequaled sway control system.

When you spend thousands of dollars on a tow vehicle and trailer, it just makes sense to protect it. Equal-i-zer gives you the protection and peace of mind you need to enjoy a vacation. Here are a few of the many advantages to owning an Equal-i-zer — the Original Sway Control Hitch.

Without a doubt, the biggest safety problem with towing trailers is that they can sway too easily — leading to loss of control. A number of factors contribute to sway, including: side winds, passing vehicles, quick lane changes, uneven roads, sudden stops, and even the trailer hitch itself.

Normal hitches simply don’t handle these situations well. In fact, they often enhance the problem and make driving all the more stressful.

Several options are available to deal with trailer sway:

  1. The Equal-i-zer makes travel safer“Add-on” friction bar – added on to any chain style weight distribution hitch. While the “add-on” sway bar gives some sway dampening, drawbacks include adjustment difficulties and kinking in tight turns.
  2. Elaborate hitch system – priced between 750 and 2,400 dollars. These hitches are often complicated and difficult to use.
  3. Equal-i-zer sway control hitch – provides the most practical way to remove the risk of trailer sway.

The Equal-i-zer eliminates swaying hazards by incorporating sway control brackets, built to work in tandem with the patented hitch head. This distinctive design restricts the side-to-side movement of the weight distributing arms and virtually eliminates trailer sway.

The Equal-i-zer is easy to use, more effective at controlling trailer sway than two “add-on” sway bars, and has features comparable to elaborate hitch systems at a fraction of the cost. In fact, Equal-i-zer is the best value and best hitch on the market today!



Another common problem encountered when towing a trailer is “highway hop,” or the bouncing that often happens to trailers on uneven roadways. Uneven weight distribution is often the cause of this.

With ordinary ball-type hitches, most of the trailer tongue-weight gets carried on the back axle of the tow vehicle, often this raises the front end of the vehicle. The uneven distribution makes steering control more difficult — especially during emergency situations.


The Equal-i-zer stops trailer sag Without weight distribution, the hitch sags.With Equal-i-zer, the truck and trailer are level.


Weight distribution is needed to level a trailer and tow vehicle. Risks associated with driving a trailer without a weight distribution hitch include loss of steering control, braking difficulties, and hitch dragging.

To combat the weight distribution problem, the trailer and tow vehicle must be level. Options available to achieve proper weight distribution include:

  1. A chain style hitch – which uses chains attached to tapered spring arms. Chains are snapped onto trailer attachments distributing the weight.
  2. Equal-i-zer – replaces chains with rigid trailer attachments giving a smoother more comfortable ride. Equal-i-zer’s solid, square spring arms provide you with superior weight distribution. Equal-i-zer makes towing safe and easy.

When you consider all the safety benefits of the patented Equal-i-zer hitch, it would surely be worth almost any price, but it is surprisingly affordable.

There are two options for attaching the Equal-i-zer to a pole tongue style trailer.

#1 Pole tongue adapter. (Left Picture below)  Part # 95-01-5950.  Price for the pole tongue adapter is $116.  This attaches to the trailer frame and spreads the arms out as if it were an A-frame.  The pole tongue adapter attaches to the frame of the trailer in approximately the same spot as the normal brackets.  Between 27” and 31” back from the center of the coupler is ideal.  You will need to see if this area is clear. Order…

#2 The best option is to use the existing brackets. (Right Picture above)  Eliminate the two inside link plates.  Bolt the outside link plates directly together around the pole tongue trailer.  Two jam (half) nuts will be needed for the L-bracket to fit properly.  We will include the jam nuts if they are ordered with the hitch.  The brackets also need to be somewhere between 27” and 31” back from the center of the coupler.  The arms will then ride straight back instead of spread out.  There aren’t any functional or performance issues using the Equal-i-zer this way.
