Is this right For you? Product Expert Lindsey S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Hate the tight, rigid ride you get with other systems that have built-in sway control
  • Have a lifted truck and won't be able to use the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches
  • Have a trailer with 400 lbs – 800 lbs of tongue weight that often veers out of line with your vehicle

No, if you:

  • Don’t have a lot of space to work with on your trailer frame, or if the frame is thicker than 2-1/2”
  • Have a boat trailer with surge brakes or an aluminum frame
  • Hate noise - the bars popping in and out of the cams can create a racket, especially during turns
Featuring dual-cam sway control to stop trailer sway before it begins, this weight-distribution system has flexible, powder coated steel, trunnion spring bars that create a level ride for both your trailer and your tow vehicle. Shank sold separately. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Reese.

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.

I really like this hitch. NO trailer sway at all. Easy hook-up. I appreciate E-Trailer for their help in selecting the best hitch for my Rv trailer. Thanks!

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!!

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!


Comments
This Reese hitch is far superior than the one it replaced! Husky Center LineEasier to make running adjustments for conditions and loading of the trailer as well.

Made a huge difference in how the travel trailer handled crosswinds and passing larger trucks. Great recommendation!




by:

The hitch itself is great. Took some time to dial it in. My trailer sits 28” high the Instructions only go up to 26”. So it took some time to get it to work. But once I got it dialed in everything else was easy.




by:

It works great. Easy to hook up and unh ook.




by:

This is one of the best hitches I've used. We took a trailer to Burning Man last year, traveling 2100 miles each way from Florida. Up hills, down hills, 6% grades and all. If a truck passing managed a bit of a sway in our 21' trailer, touching the trailer brakes, using the brake controller, set it back in line.
Set the trailer level and it works great!




by:

We just returned from our first trip from Oregon to Montana. It was extremely windy and gusty both ways. This hitch is amazing. the wind and passing trucks never once caused the trailer to sway. It sometimes caused the trailer and SUV to move sideways slightly but always as a unit and always kept the trailer in a straight line with the SUV. It is easy to hook up. I recommend it.




by:

Received my order in record time. Everything was well packaged and arrived in good condition. The assistance and recommendations I received were very helpful.

I have ordered numerous items previously from etrailer and have always been well satisfied with the products and the price. The etrailer folks are my choices for trailering parts and supplies.




by:

What a great company to work with. I had some trouble determining which hitch I needed. One phone call and they explained everything I needed to know. I have already made more purchases from etrailer.

Thanks guys,

A little noisy, but excellent control of trailer; fully adjustable

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is simply a very good hitch. Installation instructions produced a completely flat tow when the trailer settles on the truck. My rig is sway free there's no extra up and down movement. The hitch is quiet going forward and backwards. Just really pleased.

Very well. An excellent hitch.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


It really does the trick in terms of keeping down the camper sway. I can now drive on the interstate with no problems. Before I got this hitch, I just simply couldn't take the constant fighting as the camper swayed from left to right. The noise is not near as much as was advertised. It pops occasionally when making a tight turn but otherwise we just don't notice it much. The installation is worth mentioning. First, I am not fond of installing items like this. However, my wife and I took our time and installed in in a few hours. The instructions were excellent and (of course!) I still found a way to deviate from them which extended the installation time. However, in the end, it was not a terribly difficult job. This is not our first weight distribution hitch, but it will likely be our last.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

No problems, hitch still performs as I described in my write up a year ago.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.


Comments
Absolutely the best working hitch ever. No noise, clacking and knuckling like friction hitches. The sway control is amazing.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I don't really have anything to compare this weight-ditrubuting hitch to because it is my first one. I had it installed on a 2021 Forest River Puma 37' foot travel trailer. I pull it with my 11 F350. Before the hitch, I hated pulling the trailer in crosswinds but after the hitch install the winds, dont seem to bother me at all. The hitch allows for tight turns and does not limit any movement. The trailer is much easier to pull and at times, I forget it is back there.

I did not install myself even though I typically would but did not want to mess up. I paid a local RV mechanic $100 to install the hitch. They completed the task in about 2 hours.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.


Comments
I have a 33 TT towing with an ecoboost. I think the hitch I have is too week. My TT never gets loaded over 6,500 yet I still get a bad front end drift? I think its the WD I currently have. Does this hitch really solve that problem? My TV is a super crew lariat off road package with c rated tires
-- comment by: Josh - 08/08/2014

Weight distribution can help handling and steering when properly set up. This system also has an integrated sway control system also improves handling and stability. With your travel trailer loaded and ready to go, having about 650 pound of tongue weight, this system is rated appropriately for your needs. If you are experiencing too much front end sway you may need to make some adjustments to place more of the load on the front axle These adjustments can be made at the angle of the head. Please see your specific installation instructions for more details.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Was not what I hoped, did not take the sway out of my 2021 Grand Design travel trailer. The hitch is now for sale online at half the price I paid for it. I built and installed gooseneck on my trailer... It now pulls great! Too bad you can not order the trailer built that way!


Comments
It is important to make sure the loaded tongue weight of the 2021 Grand Design Travel Trailer does not exceed the weight rating of the bars for this system which are rated for between 600 lbs to 1,200 lbs. Ideally you want the loaded tongue weight of the trailer to fall in the middle of that range to combat sway. I know that you ended up converting to a gooseneck but that is something to keep in mind for the future.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I won’t know much about the product until it is installed and we have taken a trip with it pulling our trailer. Check back in late fall


Comments
This has turned out to be one of the best purchases we have made for our trailer. The ride is much more solid now, I almost don’t know I am pulling a trailer. Plus, we used to have a separate anti-sway bar, one of those friction ones, but now we only have to attach these weight distribution bars and all is good. We are about to leave on a 3 month trip with the confidence that at least this part of our outfit is 100 ready for the challenge.

  • What are the Differences in Trunnion Bars and Round Bars in the Reese Strait-Line System?
    There is no difference in how the two systems handle; trunnion bar or round bar. The primary differences are the way the bars are constructed, and how they attach to the head of the system. Trunnion bars slide in from the side and behind to attach to the head. They are also more expensive and have a higher weight and pull capacity at 15,000 lbs. Round bars are bent up, and that is how they attach to the head. Their weight and pull capacity is 12,000 lbs. Please note, the Reese Strait-Line...
