Weight Distribution Hitch

What is a Weight Distribution Hitch?

Weight Distribution Bars & Anti Sway Hitches

When Andersen Hitches decided to create our own Weight Distribution Hitch, we wanted to improve on the models that we saw in the industry. That desire led us through two years of development and road testing and resulted in a complete redesign of weight distribution. And we left the competition in the dust! We were able to introduce the industry’s first Anti-Sway, Anti-Bounce Weight Distribution Hitch.

The Andersen Weight Distribution Hitch (available with 4" or 8" drop/rise) doesn't just raise the bar, it sets it at a whole new level — changing the industry forever! We combined modern materials, technology, and innovation to create the simplest, quietest, and most advanced weight distribution hitch on the road today. Our weight distribution kits offer a first in the industry, giving trailer owners the best anti-sway AND anti-bounce with the only true Motion-Dampening™ system around. In fact, we’ve found that people are shocked at how smooth and quiet the ride is compared to using anything else on the market today!

Weighing in under 60 lbs, this good-looking but tough workhorse is rated up to 14,000 lbs GTWR (1400 lbs tongue). That means it can handle all of your heavy-duty trailer needs. This system also does double duty, because you can use it as a standard ball mount if you need to tow without weight distribution.

Backed by a lifetime warranty, it's the only choice for total anti-sway, anti-bounce weight distribution!
