Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.


Serrated Washer System

Unique Features of Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese Strait-Line system make adjusting the tilt of the weight-distribution head a snap. This is a huge improvement over the standard pin-and-washer method, which involves piling washers - one on top of another - onto a difficult-to-access pin. The serrated-washer system lets you easily loosen, adjust and tighten a single washer and nut on either side of the head for simple, secure positioning.



The trunnion spring bars of the Strait-Line system slide into the weight-distribution head for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and hot rolled steel construction, these bars offer superior flex, ensuring a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer. These specially designed bars have rounded, hooked ends, making them the only kind of spring bars that can function with Reese's active-style, dual-cam sway control.


Weight Distributing Hitch

Dual-Cam Sway Control

Reese's dual-cam sway-control system stops trailer sway before it begins. This is a significant improvement over traditional friction-style controls, which help to correct sway only after it has already begun. This specially designed system uses unique sliding devices called "cams" to suspend the spring bars of your weight-distribution system. One end of a cam bolts onto your trailer's frame, and the other end attaches to the lift bracket via the lift chain. The rounded, hooked ends of the spring bars then sit in these cams. The controlled placement of the spring bars keeps your system secure while still allowing enough movement for free, easy interaction between your trailer and your tow vehicle.



Dual-Cam Sway Control Turning

During basic, straight-line towing, the cams lock in place and hold the trailer steady by applying constant, consistent pressure to both sides. This keeps the trailer from swaying in crosswinds. When you go into a turn, the cams unlock and slide to allow a controlled, full-radius maneuver. If you swerve suddenly, the cams will give to accommodate the movement while still working to obtain a straight angle, thereby maintaining control of the trailer.

This setup really improved my ride. I was looking for both weight distribution and sway control for my '08 Yukon pulling a 24' vintage Streamline. Trailer weight about 4000 lb, tongue weight about 650 lb. Even though these spring bars were rated a little lower than my actual tongue weight turned out to be, the ride they delivered was great.
The installation instructions for the entire system were extremely detailed and complex, but I followed them carefully step by step and achieved a very good outcome.
I also installed an electric tongue jack which made connecting and disconnecting this hitch much, much easier. Wouldn't use a weight distribution hitch without one.
Price, advice, and service great as always. Thanks etrailer.

I am very pleased with this product because it solved my sway problem on our new travel trailer. I tried towing with just a ball and receiver hitch, bought a chain type equalizer hitch and then added a stabilizer bar and still had problem with swaying. I had in mind to purchase a different type system but Katie suggested this one. It works very well and makes pulling this trailer more enjoyable and much safer. Before I installed this hitch if I had a truck pass me they would just about blow me off the road! Now I can feel the wind move it just a little (I would call this "normal")

the individuals at etrailer were very helpful in providing me the exact configuration for my specific application and the shipping time was extremely fast.

Our family has been using the Reese Dual-Cam sway control (which comes with the Strait-Line WD setup) for over 20 years. The sway control arms, which bolt to the trailer A-frame, have cam arms which ride in the "saddles" on the ends of the WD bars. If set up right on installation, about the only time you would experience enough sway to give you "white knuckles" is when you are driving in a tornado! (& if that happens, GOOD LUCK and GOD BLESS!) The Hensley hitch is probably better (have never owned one), but the Reese Strait-Line is close to $2,000 cheaper, and none of our family has ever felt like we had a need for a hitch/sway control setup more expensive or better than the Reese, and most of us pull some really long and heavy conventional travel trailers. High crosswinds will move the entire rig sideways, but the trailer stays centered behind the truck. The "bow wave" of 18-wheelers overtaking us at a high rate of speed on multi-lane highways will push the rear of the trailer sideways as the bow wave passes. But no steering correction is needed. The additional couple of hundred pounds of pressure put on the WD bars when the trailer moves sideways and causes the sway control cams to move out of their "saddles" pushes the sway arm cams right back down into their "saddles" on the end of the WD bars, which, if the hitch was adjusted right on installation, means that the trailer is once again centered directly behind the tow vehicle. The Strait-Line can probably be beat, but we're never going to spend an extra $2000 to find out. If you have any control problems with the Strait-Line, it is either not set up correctly, or the wind is such that you shouldn't be towing anything, anyway. Even a Hensley hitch can't keep the entire combination of truck/trailer from being pushed sideways by very strong winds, nor can a 5th wheel hitch, because I've seen 5th wheels lying on their sides more than once, and during my working career I pulled high-profile or gooseneck heavy equipment trailers all the time. There are times when you just really shouldn't be towing large travel trailers, or any high-profile trailer.

OK, I waited to write this review until I had an opportunity to really use this product. We just completed a 950 mile camping trip around Colorado. We went up and over mountains, around curves, and traveled in the interstate. All I can say is, WOW! I wish I had purchased this years ago. We pull a 7000# travel trailer with a new F150 EcoBoost. Before installing this we were pushed around in windy canyons, semis and dealt with sway descending the mountains. This product is the real deal. I can safely travel on the interstate at speeds up to 75 MPH thanks to this product.



by:

I used this for the first time Pulling a 22 foot travel trailer with a Jeep Gladiator. I hit high winds 20+ gust to 40, heavy rain. I have towed thousands of miles and was ready for anything NO Sway at all felt solid I had people tell me I could buy a cheaper hitch YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR



by:

Awesome weight hitch! I pull a 28" camper with this hitch and its really nice not having to stop and break down the hitch before backing up the camper. I have about 3k miles on this setup and absolutely love it. Its also easier to store when not in use because the chains stay attached to the cams on the a frame of the trailer and not attached to the bars. So the bars arent as heavy. Thanks again etrailer



by:

I added this hitch setup to a 2023 F250 - 2023 Hawk horse trailer with tack room and I could not be happier. It allows the truck to maintain its proper ride height and eliminates all the minor steering corrections needed when driving at highway speeds on less than perfect roads. Proper setup is key and takes time but the outcome is well worth the time and money investment. This is the 2nd straight line set up I have had on my vehicles for horse trailer towing - first was for an Expedetion with a smaller trailer which provided me with a decade of confident trailering.



by:

Installed this on a 2016 Silverado 1500 2wd dbl cab pulling a 2016 northland 30ft travel trailer. I was having the typical sway issues with crosswinds and passing big rigs etc. I am very pleased that this hitch solved the problem. Good quality product. I installed it myself and I had to buy about $100 in larger wrenches and a good quality step drill bit.



by:

I had this hitch installed at a local RV specialist shop as I didn't have access to a large enough flat and level area. The cost was about $225. When I picked up the truck and trailer for a test drive, the trailer tracked true behind the truck and I never felt any sway. The load leveling feature helped keep the truck level and I always felt I was in complete control. The only down side to this product is the noise it makes when taking sharp turns. The metallic popping noise are scary at first but I was expecting them. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of this hitch and would recommend it.



by:

The product was not only a perfect physical fit for my truck and travel trailer, but it it works so well I no longer drive with white knuckles. The etrailer support team worked with me to figure out my real needs versus my preciously rookie "wants" which were somewhat uninformed wants. My Trunion Bar WD Hitch with Optional sway control makes ZERO noise in use or backing up, nor does it impart any felt knuckling.



by:

I use this to pull a 3500lb travel trailer behind my 2007 BMW X3. We just completed a 4000 mile road trip with this hitch, traveling on every difficult windy curvy hilly mountain and coastal road from San Diego to Vancouver and back.
The PROS: Easy to install, attach and detach. It distributed the weight well, and we had no problems with sway.
The CON: It moans and groans on turns like an old man that forgot to take his pain meds. Even when it’s been lubricated.



by:

I've been very happy with the system that we got, we put almost 7,000 miles on it in 2017 and it rode great. I added a secondary friction sway control to compliment the control provided by the leveling bars and cam assembly and over those miles it never felt uneasy. A couple of times we were in some pretty good cross winds and I would notice enough to put two hands on the wheel but the rest of the time it was almost easy to forget we were towing a 28' trailer.
I'd definitely recommend spending a little time at your local Cat Scales to find out your specific truck / trailer and tongue weights, but this hitch and distribution assembly gave us the ability to tune the tongue weight into right where we wanted by the selection of the right link.
The peace of mind the overall control that it provided going down the road is well worth it.



by:

This hitch is much easier to set up, hook up and unhook than the hitch it replaced!
I have been around Reese Hitches for 50+ years. They are hard to beat!



by:

Works great on a older 28 ft. 6000lb. restored Airstream with a F150 4x4 with anti sway electronics. Without we could only go about 55 mph and the trailer would sway. The truck would warn us to slow down. The install was a bit complex we were not too sure of the angle of the hitch but we followed directions and it works. We traveled about 6k miles on two trips. It stopped the sway even at 70mph . Many a giant truck flew by at 80+ it started to sway but the bars prevented it. Backing and tight turns are no problem. Adjusting the chains require some work and disconnecting, reconnecting a pain. would highly recommend to any one .

Here is my completed setup Everything went nice and smooth, thanks to your installation videos. Thank you!

This is a quality product from Etrailer.com.
It
does everything they claim it is supposed to do. I have used it three times now since having it professionally installed by my local RV Dealer. It has eliminated the sway problems that I had been having at different times on different trips with my 31 foot Rockwood Ultralight 2701SS.
Very happy with this product and even more satisfied with the quick and outstanding service from etrailer.com. You wont go wrong with this combination.

Reese RP 66073, install on a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. Used a drop shank because my truck (stock) hitch sits at 19”. Bought this product for a 7’X18’ V-nose trailer, system has a “standard” neck and this system is essentially perfect, had concerns at first. System is understandably overkill at first thought. I plan on pulling in the neighborhood of 9000lb from the coast of GA to Colorado Springs. I did not want to revisit this later on or part way through my trip! So getting this system should prevent any of the sway and weight sag during my haul. First day of install, system seems to work very well! Had concerns about the trunnions staying on at full turn but a full day of in town driving with and without load and zero issues. My setup is not a “forget it’s back there” configuration but a noticeable difference in pulling quality and stability overall! Finding something in the realm of 450’ pounds to torque the hitch ball is hard to do unless your in a specialty field. An install video online claims the rivet helicoils are 9/16, the system I received calls for an 11/16 hole for the helicoils. Local hardware stores skip right over 11/16 so if your at a lowes or the like, you will have to go with a unibit if this is the route you choose to take be very careful because going to the 11/16 setting will make for a loose fit for the rivets!! If you have the option I would suggest a 5/8” bit and file to get that snug fit that is required to ensure engagement on closed frame trailers! Other than that install was relatively painless. Lots of pulling and tightening if your having to install this manually!!



by:

I have been using this hitch for about 2 years now on my 20' flatbed trailer. It has been done everything I expected and excels at what it is designed to do. I have had my trailer loaded up to it's max weight (12k) on more than one occasion and this hitch keeps everything nice and level. I have never experienced any sway, but I am careful to load the weight on my trailer correctly. I had to use a drop shank #RP3344 since I have a 6" lift and 35" tires. My trailer sits perfectly level. etrailer is awesome - fast shipping and top notch customer service!!



by:

I purchased the weighted distribution hitch a year ago and have towed my rv trailer on a dozen trips. It minimizes the sway from wind and being passed by semi trucks. Towing is much easier now. The installation directions are clear and there is a YouTube video to watch. I installed the weight distribution hitch myself, it took about 4 hours to install and adjust the cams. I would buy this again, worth the money.



by:

My last strait-line weight distribution kit w/sway was sold with my travel trailer. These with dynamic sway control have made such a difference in many tricky situations, times when I was traveling in ice in a snow storm, or rain storms, I have always felt in good control with this system. Buying the same system again was a no-brainer. E trailer has helped out a lot with the best tech support and has answered so many questions for me. Great group over there.

  • Best Weight Distribution for 2013 Ram 1500 and Coleman E3 Popup Trailer with Varying Tongue Weight
    To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Since the tongue weight is going to vary even a rough estimate of the range will help to determine the best option. In terms of flexibility I recommend either going with a system that does not include sway...

    The best weight distribution for your 2019 Honda Pilot is the Reese Strait Line part # RP66072 which has the best sway control that works to prevent sway before it starts and also has a tongue weight range that matches well to the towing capacity of your vehicle. The range is 200-600 lbs of tongue weight.

Based on that information you're looking at a tongue weight of 400-500 lbs. However, I do recommend measuring your tongue weight using a scale like...

    It sounds as if you have already taken care of a few issues that can cause excessive trailer sway. Eliminating some of the weight on the rear of the trailer can certainly help. You will also want to make sure your trailer is as level as possible when towing. Move as much weight as possible forward of the trailer axles.

If your dry hitch weight is approximately 288 lbs with a dry trailer weight of 2,495 lbs and your trailer has a GVWR of 3,788 lbs from what I was able to find online, the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0600 with a 600 lbs TW capacity would work much better for you than the 450 lb system # FA92-00-0450. That being said, the minimum...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Weight Distribution System for 2007 Toyota Sienna an Pop-Up
    For your 2007 Toyota Sienna, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75237 is my recommendation. Then if you don't have the wiring and brake controller, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118304, the # ETBC7L and Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # C51180. Then I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - No Shank - Trunnion Bar - 10K GTW, 600 lbs TW # RP66072 along with...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer Towed By 2013 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The correct system for your needs will depend on your trailer. The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System you referred to, part # RP66082 would be compatible with a Class III, IV or V hitch for your 2013 Silverado. This particular system is rated to handle trailers with tongue weights ranging from 200-600 lbs. Ideally, you want to choose a system that places your trailer tongue weight as close as possible to the center of the effective range of the system. To determine which system...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Jeep With 7x12 Dual Axle Enclosed Trailer
    For a weight distribution system, you want to base your decision off of total tongue weight and features like anti-sway. The total tongue weight is not just the loaded tongue weight of the trailer, but also includes any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. So any supplies you load in the back of your Jeep will also add to that number. The sway control that is integrated in your Jeep really doesn't help the sway of the trailer directly. It basically adds braking to...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution with Sway Control For Lance Trailer
    The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 14K GTW, 1.4K TW # C17063 is far too large a system for your trailer tongue weight and that may be part of the sway issue as that will make your trailer too rigid in its ride. My recommendation for you is to use a system with integrated anti-sway that is rated for your tongue weight. You want to base your system off the total tongue weight which is your trailer's loaded tongue weight along with any cargo behind...

  • Weight Distribution Shank with 6 inch Drop for Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
    The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, # RP66082, that you mentioned will give you a 6-1/2 inch rise, but it will not give you a 6 inch drop. If you need a shank that will give you a 6 inch drop, then you will want to order the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System without a shank, # RP66072, and the Reese Weight Distribution Shank, # RP3215. These two items will give you the same system as part # RP66082, but with a shank for a 6 inch drop. Keep in mind, this system...
