TW? GTW? What do these acronyms mean?
TW stands for Tongue Weight. Tongue Weight is the downward force exerted on the hitch ball by the trailer coupler. In most cases, it is about 10-15 of GTW.
GTW stands for Gross Trailer Weight. The Gross Trailer Weight is the total weight of the trailer.
I’m still pretty confused… could you go into more detail on what the difference is between these two?
Weight distribution is a system that installs on the trailer frame and the trailer couples to a special shank on the trailer hitch. The spring bars that come with a weight distribution system take some of the weight of the trailer and distribute it equally among all the axles of the towing vehicle and trailer. As a result, some vehicles can tow more weight when using weight distribution and there will be less sag at the connection point of the vehicle and trailer.
