Equal-i-zer hitch recently introduced its highest-rated sway control and weight distribution hitch, the 16K original Equal-i-zer 4-Point Sway Control Hitch, rated at 1,600 pounds maximum tongue weight and 16,000 pounds maximum trailer weight.

“Trailer owners can have peace of mind knowing their hitch is strong enough to handle their heaviest application,” said CEO Jed Anderson in a press release. “Year after year we have been voted the No. 1 sway control hitch in America by RVers across the country. Expanding this line allows us to provide the best sway control to even more trailer owners.”

The new 16K unit comes standard with a 2 1/2-inch shank to fit directly into Class V receivers, to accommodate higher-rated towing capacities. The thicker, stronger bracket hardware that mounts onto the trailer frame will fit frames from five- to eight inches tall.

During the development of this product, Equal-i-zer hitch engineers spent countless hours developing a higher-rated hitch to ensure safe towing in all conditions.

“We loaded trailers up to the hitch’s capacity and took the hitch on winding roads, steep grades, through heavy winds, rain and snow, and we’re excited for our customers to experience the stability and comfort that the 16K Equal-i-zer brings,” said Jason Harper, head product engineer.

The 16K Equal-i-zer hitch can be purchased through Equal-i-zer hitch dealers located throughout the United States and Canada.
