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
  • Might need to upgrade to a heavier trailer down the line and don't want to have buy a completely new hitch
  • Have a lighter weight trailer with 200 lbs – 600 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, this weight-distribution system includes an adjustable shank and flexible, powder coated steel, trunnion spring bars to create a level ride for both your trailer and your tow vehicle.

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.

Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW - RP66082

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (297 Customer Reviews)

Featuring dual-cam sway control, this weight-distribution system includes an adjustable shank and flexible, powder coated steel, trunnion spring bars to create a level ride for both your trailer and your tow vehicle. Fits 2" trailer hitches.

by:

It does the job very well. It provides perfect amount of weight distribution with great amount of adjustability according to your liking. There is no sway at all; even in very windy conditions. It is noisy - it pups and creeks when making turns when parking. Although it has great amount of freedom to adjust, it will make you work for it - it take lots of time to get it perfect; but if you take the time- you will get it perfect. You have to be mechanically savvy.

I have a 21 foot travel trailer that I pull with a Nissan X-Terra. Before getting the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, the back of the X-Terra and the front of the trailer would be too low, creating a "V" at the hitch connection. In addition, out on the highway, the trailer would sway, particularly on the down hills, and at times would get so intense I was afraid the sideways energy created would force me into oncoming traffic or off the road to the right. After installing the Strait-Line system, the X-Terra and trailer are leveled out and the sway problem has been completely eliminated. I could not be happier with the results. I would recommend this product to anyone having these problems. Do your research to make sure you get the proper size for the unit you are pulling.


Comments
A couple of months ago I purchased a 2017 Ford F150 with the built in sway control. The new truck pulls the trailer much more easily than my Nissan X-terra did. Although hooking up the trailer to just the ball hitch on the new truck is much easier than having to use the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, I do find that the trucks built-in sway control, although adequate, does not work as well as the Strait-Line system does. The trucks built-in system can get overwhelmed by excessive sway and must rely on an automatic deceleration system to correct and control the sway, which can at times be a bit of a challenge until you get comfortable with it.

This system works incredibly! Beyond my expectations, stress free towing. The single best accessory we have purchased for our rig. Highly recommended, we won’t leave home without it.



by:

Company Rep ( Tommy C) was amazingly helpful in doing rapid research with Reese company and determining that my existing system although still functional contained obsolete parts and should be replaced to accommodate second trailer needs. New pets order was immediate and I received all necessary parts on 3rd day from order.
Exceptional! Now a design complaint regarding mounting the Reese Sway Control brackets to trailer frame tube (2"x6"-1/8" ) with press in "nut rivets". This frame is not adequately thick enough to accept this attachment procedure unless these items are welded in place to keep them from "stripping out". Holes in frame were correctly drilled per instruction. My machine shop, one of the most respected in Illinois, that this is a very common situation which can only be remedied by a skied welder. This is something that Reese and you should address. Hope this will assist others. Thanks for your excellent service.

System works perfectly, as expected. Thank you for following up on this issue.

I tow a 2800 lb travel trailer (loaded) with a 2015 Kia Sedona. Everyone told me this hitch was overkill but
that’s what I wanted. It gives you so much control and I believe makes towing much safer for everyone. It is a little harder to install but it’s worth the extra time. etrailer was great throughout the whole buying process.



by:

This thing is worth it’s weight in gold. No sway when on the go and a huge difference in overall stability. Also grateful for the eTrailer recommendation that guided me to this set up. Highly, highly recommend it.



by:

Good system design and solid. Prevents sway, side to side, up and down because of the shape of the arms' end, the free moving holder and the chain link length that is adjustable. You can see at the turns how the system pushes back trying to straighten the convoy. And even backing up is fine, others cannot do backup.
It will lift the truck to be even both the front and the back.
I recommend. Best in class



by:

Great hitch. Controls weight and sway and although easy to install the instructions were not clear on direction of cam bracket. Best to be professionally installed for most users though basic tools and time are all you need.



by:

well made product. be aware that sway control may not fit on camper. suggest purchasing separate if needed.


Comments
after one year of use this product has held up great, some surface rust in areas, but with the abuse it takes that is to be expected. Id recommend this product to others. Ive sold the sway bars as they didnt fit on my pop up camper, but the weight dist works great.

Purchased this to tow our MicroMini Winnebago 1700BH with our 2012 GMC Acadia with factory towing package. My father has towed with these for years and swears by them. I know why now. Wind, passing 18 wheelers, whatever - these things keep our ride level and straight. I like having the sway control built into the equalizer bars, and what I would call the "active" sway control. When these get out of the stirrups they actually force themselves back with the pressure the misalignment causes as opposed to the "friction brake" style. Well worth the money.



by:

New to the camping world but did my research on this Reese straight line hitch and just pulled 780 miles to Maine. I felt comfortable and confident in knowing that my first experience would not be a disaster . etrailer was awesome in our decision making because I was able to bounce questions off them (Maranda) to make our best fit and I couldn’t be more happy. The installation can be done by a competent person but buy good drill bits first and have your C clamps ready . I think they show 3 different drill bits to use with precise drilling instructions. Ok but did scratch my head a couple times as the directions could be more clear.



by:

The product is exactly as advertised and should be the best currently on the market. The installation instructions need some work for clarity but the installation video on eTrailer helped immensely to answer a few questions the instructions created.



by:

Great hitch for weight distribution and sway control. use with or without sway control.

Very good no problems

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 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


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


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 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.


Comments
The noise you describe is a function of the metal on metal contact that provides the anti-sway component of the system. Because lubricating the contact points would defeat the sway control function, the noise is for the most point unavoidable.

  • Does the Weight of a Weight Distribution System Count When Calculating Tongue Weight
    When calculating tongue weight for a weight distribution system you would not add the weight of the system into the calculations. 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.

  • Mounting the Dual Cam Sway Control on a Low Clearance Pace American Journey Trailer
    I talked to my guy at Reese about your weight distribution setup and you can place the frame bracket of the Dual Cam sway control bracket further forward on your trailer frame. Technically your trailer has a standard coupler. I am guessing you went with the bottom-mount coupler because the bottom of the coupler is almost level with the bottom of your trailer frame. The 20-1/2 inch measurement is to give you an idea of where the sway control bracket will be mounted, but that distance can...
