CURT Manufacturing, a manufacturer and marketer of towing products, introduced a new product into its weight distribution lineup, the TruTrack.
This weight-distribution system is a new form of the trunnion bar, weight distribution hitch, combining load equalization and active sway control to deliver the smoothest, safest ride possible.
It accomplishes this using three components: adjustable support brackets, a spring and cam system and interlocking head tilt adjustment.
First, 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 TruTrack also 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.
