Product Details

The Eaz-Lift 10,000 lb. equalizer hitch with 1,000 lb. tongue weight capacity is the most popular one we sell. It works for most tow vehicle and trailer applications.
 
This is a bolt together hitch with appx. 8" of overall height adjustment which makes it usable on most tow vehicles.
 
The standard shank included with the kit provides 2-1/2" drop and 5-1/2" rise (measured from the top of the receiver hitch opening to the ball platform). 

The total trailer weight rating is 10,000 lbs. when using the weight distributing bars with a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs.
 
Everything but the trailer ball is included in this kit.
 
The new Elite hitch head ball mount comes with built in sway ball platforms on both sides, a large cut-out to allow a socket to be used for trailer ball tightening, grease fittings for bar socket lubrication, and a raised, reinforced trailer ball platform.


For lifted 4x4 trucks be sure to check hitch height before ordering. Most lifted trucks require a shank with more drop. If you require more drop please order kit # EL1000 (hitch less shank) plus the shank needed for your application.

Do not exceed vehicle manufacturer's recommended capacities.
 

DETERMINING THE CORRECT WEIGHT DISTRIBUTING HITCH:

Tongue Weight includes the trailer tongue weight with full gas, water, waste systems and a packed trailer.

Estimate the car trunk load (includes all items carried in the back of the vehicle).

Match the sum of these weights to the proper EAZ-LIFT Hitch. For example, a tongue weight of 500 lbs., coupled with a car trunk load of 200 lbs., equates total hitch weight of 700 lbs.

From the Guide, the "example" vehicle-trailer combination would require a 750 Weight Distributing Hitch. If there is a future possibility of buying a heavier trailer, it may be wise to select a heavier Weight Distributing Hitch.

Make sure the tongue weight and the gross trailer weight do not exceed the tow vehicle manufacturer's recommended capacities.

The hitch selected must have a maximum Gross Trailer Weight rating equal to or greater than, the trailer rating.

Tongue weight should be at least 10% of gross trailer weight.

Tips for calculating proper shank drop/rise:

  • Measure from ground to top of receiver hitch opening.
  • Measure from ground to inside top of trailer coupler.
  • Subtract hitch ball height (not including trailer ball shank) from coupler height measurement.
  • Difference between receiver height and final coupler height measurement is the amount of shank drop or rise needed.
Example:
Top of receiver measures     24"
Top of coupler measures      19"
Trailer ball measures            3" high
Drop needed                        8"
