From trailer.com:

Which Weight Distribution Style is Better, Trunnion Bar or Round Bar
which system is better ... trunnion or round/flat bar?

Expert Reply:
You will hear arguments for both, the general consensus around etrailer.com is that trunnion systems are the better design. The bars are very easy to remove and install in the head. Since there is no bend in them, they are considered stronger and more durable. Since the head does not come down and the bars do not stick out of the bottom, there are less ground clearance issues. Some people argue that round bar systems are easier to adjust, but you set the brackets and head once and as long as you are towing the same trailer, you usually do not have to adjust them again.
