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 Trunnion-Bar Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese 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 this 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. In addition, 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 (sold separately).

This equalizer hitch works very well with both my trucks - an Chevy hd 2500 and a Jeep pickup. really took care of the trailer lateral sway problem I was having. Heavy duty, well built, easy to install, just have to get correct positioning on the preload bars. Thanks




by:

Just what I ordered. Should have bought the Reese hitch in the first place. Have had Reese hitches in the past. You can’t beat them. A quality product with no problems ever.




by:

Ordered this on Monday and received it today. Looks like it is well made and will be ready to tow my Rockwood 2280 2016 year with my 2015 Sienna minivan. I was originally going to tow using only the standard hitch and ball but after doing further research decided the weight distribution system was the way to go, particularly because the Sienna rides low to the ground normally.

I have owned a my Reese distribution hitch for a year now and am extremely happy. The product and tech department where very knowledgeable and help me pick the right setup without any hassle. I would recommend etrailer to anyone.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


Excellent customer service, Steve was knowledgeable and courteous. Fast delivery. Great quality. Adjustable chains work well for varying loads on my 10K car hauler.

Hitch is working great on my 10,000 lb. car hauler. Have hauled loads ranging from a tractor, loader, and tiller to an SUV with no issues.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


One of the nuts supplied to attach chain to trunion bar was not self locking. Otherwise this was bought because I have next larger version for a different trailer and have been pleased with it. The service was great in that the ball I ordered was out of stock and they notified me immediately and suggested an alternative ball that met my needs.


Comments
Works well. I like the easy adjustability of the chains for different loads as the trailer is used for many different items.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


Excellent delivery speed, unfortunately we had to wait until last week to have the trailer delivered. Used the hitch 3 times and are very pleased with the ease of installation. Enjoyed the heavy duty bar to over center the distribution bar. Used the same trick I used on previous hitches - place a bicycle handlebar grip on one end of the bar - much more comfortable. First time with trunnion bars - I'll never go back to the bent bar type with the snap pins and flexible clips - I've had to replace them several times - a real pain to drill out the rivets and find new ones. Very satisfied with hitch. Pulling a 24' Outdoor RV - "Timber Ridge" - 8000 GVW with 900 lb tongue weight with a Ford F250 Diesel. Pulls like a dream!

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


After our third trip with this hitch it has performed great. This is almost exactly the same hitch that we have had for over 20 years so hopefully we will get 20 plus out of this one. Our only dissatisfaction is that the hold pins are very difficult to insert. As always the service of etrailer has been terrific.

After a year of use its still performing great.

Super hitch easy to set up and install. Easy and very informative instructions. Hooked up took a test drive worked so well I thought this can’t be true. Made an adjustment on the chain link and OMG what a big difference, not for the good though. Went back to the instructed set up perfect. Love it.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


We ordered the the weight distribution kit and hitch for a new camper on May 20th. We were going camping on the 26th of may and still had not received confirmation of shipping on the 23rd. My wife called and spoke to Sandy who advised that the online order dept was very backlogged but that she would check into getting it shipped right out for us. We received the hitch on the 25th and were able to get it hooked up and ready to go for the memorial weekend camping trip. Excellent product but more importantly to us was the above and beyond customer service we received.

Great product!!!Very well built.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


After spending two hours setting this up I was disappointed to find that I need a different hitch bar. as the supplied one did not drop enough for me to achieve a level trailer. Now I have to order another hitch bar at $ 140.

It would have been nice to know ahead of time that you should measure down from the top of your receiver box to the approx trailer coupler height ( w leveled trailer) to determine if you have sufficient drop or rise. I now have an extra hitch bar I do not need.


Comments
Question please, who told you to buy the hitch bar you received? The videos on this site are clear and would lead you order the correct componets.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


Another great Reese Product.
Installed
on a Tundra towing a Flagstaff Tent Trailer with a toy deck. I was having problems with the load sinking my truck and trailer. With the distribution system installed it is now towing very nicely. I had to increase the length of the chain by 1 link due to the way that the hitch on the trailer was built. I would buy and use another one with NO hesitation.

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


Product is exactly as described. We ended up not being able to use the trunnion bars because the trailer we rented had the propane tanks mounted such that they prevented us from attaching the bars. But we ultimately didn't need them since the trailer was a light weight one. I'm pleased to have this product since we don' t know what we might tow in the future. I like that it will also be easy to add the Reese sway controllers in the future if needed. I know comments are supposed to be about the product itself, but I have to say the best part of buying it was the fantastic & knowledgeable customer service that Etrailer provided in helping me choose the best product for my needs ( I ordered by phone).

Review from a similar Trunnion Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


The product, for how much steel it consists of came to my front door step completely unscathed. The packaging was flawless. After the cursory inspection, I began laying out the parts readying myself for assembly. The instructions were thoughtfully crafted and easy to follow.
Once mounted and setup, I took the trailer for a test pull. My trailer is a 26' enclosed car hauler. I put my wife's car in the trailer (her car is relatively small and probably only ways 2500 lbs give or take) and pulled 5 miles of curvy roads and about 10 miles of freeway. The system is confidence inspiring! I would whole-heartily recommend this product. It arrived quickly mounted easily and inspires confidence. What more could you ask for?

  • Will Weight Distribution and Sway Control Help with Sway on a 2008 Thor Freedom Spirit Trailer
    It does sound like the trailer is swaying. This is especially the case if there is a cross wind or a big vehicle passes by you. Weight distribution with sway control will definitely help. Another thing to remember is when the trailer starts to sway reduce your speed. Going faster will actually make it worse.

    You may need to adjust the angle of the head to change the tension on the spring bars. If you have not tried that give it a shot. If you continue to have problems then it could be that the system is not rated appropriately for the tongue weight or it could also mean that the trucks rear suspension is starting to get worn.

    When you tow a heavy trailer with a 1/4 ton truck there is going to be a decent amount of sag in the suspension.

    The Reese Trunnion Weight Distribution System part # RP66540 would be a great choice. It has a tongue weight range of 200-600 lbs and is a simple yet effective design. It also will allow backing up as long as it's mainly in a straight line. This is the case for basically all weight distribution systems though. As long as you aren't jackknifing the trailer you can leave the spring bars connected. Otherwise you'll need to disconnect them.

    I wouldn't think so to be perfectly honest, but weight distribution will give you a better towing experience, maybe not a huge difference but it will make an improvement. I looked up the towing capacity of your truck and it looks to have a capacity of around 10,000 lbs which means towing a 3,200 lb trailer loaded would not be an issue at all. The benefits you'll gain though will be better braking and handling especially in an emergency situation. If I were you I'd tow the trailer without...

  • Difference Between Trailer Hitch Rating and Rating When Used with Weight Distribution System

This is simply because a weight distribution system will distribute some of the tongue weight to the front axle of the vehicle, taking that load off the rear axle and thus allowing the hitch to handle more trailer weight.
