The Eaz-Lift 12,000 lb. equalizer hitch with 1,200 lb. tongue weight capacity is the most popular one we sell. It works for most tow vehicle and trailer applications.

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.

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"


 


DETERMINING THE CORRECT WEIGHT DISTRIBUTING HITCH:

Determine the tongue weight of the trailer. 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.

In most applications tongue weight should be 10-15% of gross trailer weight.
