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 600 lbs – 1,200 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. Great 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.

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.
Jeff - 04/07/2022


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


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.


This is a quality product from
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 You wont go wrong with this combination.


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!!


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.


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!

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.

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

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.

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


This weight distribution hitch works s great. however make sure the people you have install it know what they are doing, once installed properly I have had ne issues with it.


Per usual, got a great deal and fulfillment from etrailer. This system works great and was easy to install on my 2400BH from GDRV-- although it was a little tight installing the saddles behind the propane tanks. Took a little trial and error to get the height and trunion tension adjusted properly.

It makes a bit of noise in sharp turns as the sway control mechanism engages and disengages, but the setup tows nicely.


Have towed 50' rowing shell trailer over 10000 miles so far with this system. Great stability, even better tracking capability. Was a little tricky to set up originally because of non -standard trailer. Got excellent help from trailer expert to get setup dialed in, have had no problems.

25000 miles, still going strong

This is a great hitch! I pull a 35 foot travel trailer with it and I have a completely flat towing experience with this hitch. I have no sway while pulling and it is very easy when I hook up and go as well as store because the chains are attached to the trailer and not the bars. Very pleased with this hitch!


After just one avenger with it installed I would be scared to tow my camper with out it. It takes the bouncing up and down with every little hump in the road out. When a big truck goes flying by you the trailer stays put.If I Only give it 4.5 stars is because I didn't read all that came with it. It does not come with the receiver that everything hooks to. Yes another hundred buck but this part is not found local so I had to wait to finish the install until after we came back from our first trip with the new camper.


Easy to install, easy to use and set up. Only bad thing is it sounds like everything is breaking apart when making turns. The socket slides out of the nuckle and makes horrible metal on metal popping and grinding. After one year, it looks like I've had it for 10 years. And it's ona camper trailer, so it's only been used a couple of times


This hitch is the perfect hitch for my 32 foot travel trailer. It practically eliminates sway and of course distributes the tongue weight! I highly recommend this hitch of you are having sway. I tried a few others prior but they simply didn't do the job!

The hitch is working wonderfully holding up well after a year of decent use.

I use this product to pull my 6000 lb Arctic Fox trailer with a Dodge Ram 2500. I received an incredible amount of help from etrailer as to the set up and adjustment of this hitch. Without their expert advice I could never have done the set up correctly. The adjustments are critical to proper performance of the hitch. Etrailer was clearly more knowledgable and more willing to answer questions than was the manufacturer.

My trailer pulls perfectly. All is perfectly level, the truck steering is positive with front wheels firmly on the road, the anti sway feature is in great in windy conditions, the trailer tracks and follows my truck in nicely turns, and there is no "bounce" from the trailer loading down the truck.

This is a great hitch and etrailer is there to help - and you'll need it!


First off I love etrailer and always check with them for pricing on all my towing needs. We used this hitch a few times in 2019. Once was for a trip from Ohio to Salt lake city. I bought it due to it was 1 of 2 that it stated you could back up with without causing damage. I can say it performed better than expected. We had switched from a 5th wheel camper to a pull behind and with this hitch our camper felt very stable even in a cross wind. In some cases I think there was less sway than our 5th wheel was. I would not hesitate to buy another one of these hitches.


I got this to pull a trailer from Virginia, through Canada, to Alaska. After almost 6000 miles, I highly recommend this, in the appropriate weight rating of course, for anyone pulling a heavy load. My loaded trailer was right at 9000 lbs. I first visited the recommendation page and decided on this particular hitch. The route wasn't easy and mostly mountainous, and the Alaskan Highway is nothing to sneeze at. We hit several unmarked rough patches pretty fast. Never once did I have any issues. The truck rode perfectly level, and the trailer never swayed, not one bit. Set up wasn't the easiest, but just read through the instructions a couple times, then find a video covering it. Once you have it set up, hooking up takes just a minute or two longer than just hooking straight to the ball, but not any more difficult. Highly recommend.


My local installer didn't adjust the new hitch correctly. The hitch has to be "pointed down in the back" some to adjust the spring tension correctly (this is in the instructions...) Anyway, after readjusting this myself it's GREAT. Much more stable with the strait-line, the chain tensioners don't slide around on the trailer chassis and truck is level. I've recommended this hitch to several other trailer owners. Tundra 5.7L 4x4, Arctic Fox 25Y.


This product is an addition to peace of mind when I'm towing my camper. The installation was easy - although in all fairness I'm a toolmaker machinist and am well versed with these types of mechanical assemblies.

Very, very well. Ive had no problems with sway. Follow the setup instructions and youre on your way!
Very H - 07/27/2017


Wow-this fixed my issue. I have a Silvarado 2500 and pull a 36ft Puma camper. Weight distribution was not an issue with my truck but my trailer swayed a lot. After installation no sway issues at all. 25-30 mph winds on interstate no issues at all. No sway!!! Great product!!! Glad I did not go with the friction sway control. The system allowed me to back up with no issues. Even had to do a tight u-turn inside the camp with no issues. No noise. Can not believe what a difference this makes in pulling my camper. I still think I can make a few adjustments to make it better.

Installation: took about 4 hrs-but most of that time was finding another drill bit after drilling 3 holes the bit chipped. So really could have installed within 2-1/2 hours. Very easy to install. If I had watched the video first I could have installed even faster. You will need some heavy duty tools but my in-laws had the tools.


My wife and I installed this on our 28’ bunkhouse and it made and huge difference. Both the weight distribution and anti-sway systems work well. The driving experience was more stable and in control. We just drove across Kansas with 30 mph cross winds and the trailer was very solid, even as tractor trailers passed us. The weight distribution system made the ride feel like the trailer wasn’t really there whereas before the truck felt back end heavy.

This system is well worth the money for the peace of mind of safety that it has given us.


This hitch is excellent, I installed it myself in about 1.5 hours. Just follow the directions and do a careful job of measuring. easy to hook up after the initial set up is complete and pulls like a dream.

Still loving this set up! Have to explain it to some folks, but do so happily
Dave P - 09/15/2017


I had this style of hitch on our previous travel trailer and absolutely loved it . We bought a big fifth wheel RV and are finding that not all parks accommodate these big rv's , so we are going back to a travel trailer again , but I will not pull without this hitch . Etrailer did a great job getting this to me without hassle , but on my error of not reading the description fully , I ordered the trunion bar instead of the round bar set , guess it pays to read everything before you purchase !

  • Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System Weight and Disconnect
    The spring bars of weight distribution systems are designed to install and hang parallel with the frame rails on an A-frame trailer. They will hang almost completely under the frame rails, so the turning radius of a truck will only be slightly affected by the hanger brackets and only when making extremely sharp turns. In general, the only time a customer has a problem with the turning radius is when they are doing a lot of maneuvering in close quarters. The spring bar may pop out of the...

  • Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System
    Due to the length of your trailer, the Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System, item # RP66074, would certainly be my recommendation. The longer a trailer is, the more susceptible it is to trailer sway. This system prevents the swaying from occurring before it can begin, it is exactly what you need.

  • Differences Between Trailer Weight Distribution System Round Bars and Trunnion Bars
    One difference between trunnion and round bar setups is how they attach to the head of the weight distribution system.The round style bars have grooves on the bar and just twist in. The trunnion style bars slide into the head from the side or back which makes it easier to hook up then the round bar system. Also the square bar trunnion style is a more heavy duty spring bar compared to the round bar. Round bars offer less ground clearance than trunnion bars and the round bars have more...

  • Can Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Pointed Up on the Trailer End and Still Work Properly
    When ready to tow (trailer off of the jack) the spring bars should be level with the trailer frame which should be level with the ground (assuming a flat surface). Having the bars pointed too far up or down can render them ineffective and can cause the bars to contact the trailer frame in some cases. This could bend the bars or cause them to fall off. If you need to add more than 5 links of chain on chain hanging systems, it is fine to do so as long as the bars are level with the trailer...
