Towing product supplier CURT Manufacturing LLC has introduced the TruTrack product into its weight distribution lineup.
According to a press release, the weight distribution system is an advanced form of the trunnion bar weight distribution hitch, combining precise load equalization and active sway control to deliver a smooth, safe ride. It accomplishes this using three key components: adjustable support brackets, a spring and cam system, and interlocking head tilt adjustment.
The TruTrack connects to the trailer frame using a pair of trunnion-style spring bars and heavy-duty, adjustable support brackets. These support brackets are set at fixed positions by the user and hold the spring bars in place, laterally and vertically. While regular spring bars angle from side to side as the trailer rounds a corner or shifts from a crosswind, the active sway control arms resist this movement, keeping the trailer aligned with the tow vehicle and stopping trailer sway before it starts.
The second component that gives the TruTrack its active sway control is the way the spring bars attach to the head. On most WD hitches, this is done using pins or bolts. While effective for basic operation, this method offers nothing in the way of sway control, the company said. The TruTrack system integrates a special spring and cam system. The cam system builds up pressure to actively stop sway and then relaxes to make smooth turns. The hardened components of this system are less subject to wear and last longer than competitor models. The cam system also has a hex castle nut for easy adjustment to fit most industry-standard couplers.
Setup of the CURT TruTrack is extremely easy. The TruTrack employs a pair of interlocking nuts and six preset holes to give specific angles of tilt and a simpler method of adjustment. Unlike most other WD hitches that require RVers to partially disassemble the hitch head to make an adjustment, the interlocking nuts of the TruTrack can easily be accessed on the outside of the head.
