If you are carrying a load that is comparatively light in relation to your truck, a weight carrying hitch will just do fine. However, if you are attempting to pull a considerably heavier package, certainly a weight transfer hitch can do the job. The main difference between a hitch carrying weight and a hitch transmitting weight is synchronization. A weight bearing hitch is specifically connected to the towing rig, while a weight handling hitch uses sidebars to move or disperse the load weight from the rear axle to the truck’s front.
