    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distributing Hitch Purchased to replace original distributing hitch. Very similar to existing hitch with easy installation. Have already used and experienced no problems. Pricing was very reasonable. Would purchase again and recommend highly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eaz-Lift 1,000# Weight Distribution Hitch I bought this hitch to use with our 2006 1/2 ton Silverado and 24' Prowler. At first I considered having the store install it for $95, but I wanted to gain the working knowledge of the entire hitch so I took it home and did it myself. The box contained every single item that was needed, some very simple install instructions and with a few basic hand tools and the better part of a day, the job went very well. Prior to getting started, I also did a fair amount of reading and asking online questions of others that were sharing their experiences. A suggestion would be "take your time" when deciding how many spacers to use when adjusting the angle of the head. Unless you own a really heavy duty torque wrench and are a very strong person, you might want to consider taking just the finished head assembly to a local shop and pay them a few bucks to tighten all the bolts to the required torque. If this hitch will work with the weight of your trailer, I can't see where or how you could find a better hitch, a new one that is, for this price! Now we can safely tow our TT with confidence.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sucessful It does the WD task fine however requires a separate sway control. The ball mount is setup for 2 friction sway bars which may be needed especially with a longer trailer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind Once my husband figured out the hitch part, everything else went together very well. We have a great peace of mind having this on our camper, and it hauled it well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from EZ lift Round Bar Weight Distributing Hitch - 1000 lb Great powder coating, stability and towing ease. The best feature is the ease of attaching and locking chains on the bars. Instructions could be more in depth.

    Does the item require additional sway bar?

    If sway bar is required does the mounting hardware with the item? Can you back-up with this item?
    Asked by: Mick
    Sway control is not necessary, but if you would like to add it on, we have this WD hitch included with sway control as <a href=https://www.campingworld.com/camco-elite-weight-distributing-hitch-kit-1000-lbs-capacity>SKU#52097</a>. In a short straight line you can back up with the WD system as is. However, if maneuvering is required, the spring bars should be disengaged to keep from bending them.

    Hitch ball mount

    The description says includes hitch ball mount. The features say ball is not included. I assume ball mount means where the ball will be placed and the actual ball is not inlcuded because of the various sizes that may be needed. Etiher way, this is a great price and a great product. I just want to confirm if i need a ball or not. Thanks

    You are correct, the mount is included, the ball is not.
