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 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

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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (307 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.


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.

Absolutely the best working hitch ever. No noise, clacking and knuckling like friction hitches. The sway control is amazing.
Steve M - 08/20/2020


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.

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


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.


I had experience with towing travel trailers before, but it had been a while. When we decided to buy a new trailer, the hitch setup the trailer dealer proposed just didn't seem right for the job. Doing some research on my own, I came across the site. From the information that was available on the site I was able to focus in on what I thought would be the best fit for my F-150 towing an 8,000 lb + trailer. When I called with questions, I was fortunate that I talked to Wayne--one of etrailer's product specialists. This was like talking to a trusted brother. We discussed a few different brands and the pros and cons; but in the end decided the Strait-Line RP66084 would be the best fit. After that conversation, I did some more research on my own and--besides discovering that Wayne's advice was fantastic and spot on--found that the Strait Line system proposed was top ranked. The features I was looking for: (1) Leveling (weight distribution) capabilities (2) Sway control (3) Safety (4) Tracking (holding the trailer steady behind you when taking curves (5) Ability to back up without having to get out of truck and manually release a brake bar and (6) simple enough to install for a shade tree mechanic. The Strait-Line fit the bill and I'm very appreciative that has experts--rather than sales-focused pushy people--to help you make the right decision. I've pulled my trailer with ease and the Strait-Line has lived up to every expectation. And's price was great and the shipping had it delivered sooner than expected. It's rare when you can say you are COMPLETELY SATISFIED with a product, service, quality, and price--but I can that about my purchase of the Strait-Line RP66084 from

Greattowed trailer through wind and hail on way to Floridasure glad I had this hitch setup!
Ken W - 06/01/2016


Great customer service. I contacted support to check on delivery date and mentioned I was picking up a new trailer. The order was immediately pulled and shipped and arrived on time.


We bought a very large travel trailer after having owned on before. With the first camper I eventually ended up with a Reese cam sway control as the only way to control sway in Kansas cross winds. I made the mistake with our new camper of following the recommendation of the dealer on a hitch for the new camper (36ft 9600lbs unloaded). It was really just a variation of equalizer bars and man what a mistaKe that was! I looked for the Reese cam system but wasnt finding it in my searches - then realized they changed the name to the Strait-line. This thing is amazing! What a difference in the wind. And you back up without doing anything to the hitch which I guess can be an issue with 4-points. When setting it up follow the instructions to the letter, and always think “keep thongs symmetrical.” It wont disappoint. Love it.


The sway control worked OK when the hitch was new but after 8000 miles and as the hitch wore in, my 32 foot trailer became harder to control as the trailer mounted sway brackets developed flat spots on the rollers - the grinding noise which got worse as the hitch heated up from the vehicles exhaust has become unbearable. I have elected to order a different hitch / sway system which unfortunately is not sold by etrailer.

I have reached out to my contacts at Reese regarding your concerns about your Straight-Line weight distribution system and get the following information that I wanted to pass along you you: It is normal for the dual cam portion of the hitch to develop wear or flat spots on the rollers. The spring bars constantly move fore and aft on the dual cam and they will wear. We maintain this metal on metal friction to minimize sway. Yes the metal on metal contact will create noise when making turns and more noticeable when making turns at slow speeds. This is all part of how the system works with all the parts and pieces.

I have used the Reese weight distribution and sway control system twice now over the past year to tow a 6K pound, 30'Jayco travel trailer with my 2014 4x4 Tundra Platinum (which had, at the time of purchase, the largest tow capacity of any 1500 truck on the market). Before having the system installed, the trailer felt like a sail behind my truck and was pushing me around - felt like I was navigating an ocean liner. After the system was installed, I've taken the trailer over one of the most challenging (and beautiful) highways in the country - HWY 299 in Humboldt/Trinity County, California. This trek has steep grades, many poorly-banked hairpin turns, and gusty conditions, and I could barely tell I was towing anything. Huge difference in performance, and tremendous improvement in my peace of mind. Would highly recommend the system.
Note: I also have an aftermarket brake controller on the Tundra as the '14 model didn't come with an integrated controller. In TOW-HAUL mode, that truck has no problem in the muscle department towing that trailer, just needed the extra security/stabilization of the Reese system.


Pulled an 11,000 lbs enclosed trailer from Arizona to Rhode Island. Once I got the load adjusted, I didn’t have enough weight on the tongue, it worked well. I’ll buy it again and would recommend it.


I purchase a used trailer recently and have made several purchases from etrailer to include a Straight-Line Weight Distribution Hitch (RP 66084), 2 5/16 Ball (19286), RV Generator Plug (CAM 55333), Aqua Hose, sealing trim for roof and side seams etc...

All of the products have arrived on time and are of high quality. The trunnion bar holes on the RP 66084 were missed drilled so I called etrailer(Laser) and he shipped me out replacement bars which arrived sooner than expected along with a return label for the miss-drilled bars.

Products are quality, service is quality and inventory is exceptional.

It is a pleasure doing business with them.


Great product and fast delivery!


I bought the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
for my 18 foot trailer used to haul just under 10,000lbs of Tractor and implements on winding Tennessee roads with my 2014 Double Cab 4.6 liter Full Bed Tundra.
The product works great; I almost don't realize the trailer is there. Everything is level with no drop at the front and 1/2 to1 inch drop at the back depending on what's loaded. There is normally about a 3-4 inch drop in the back.

Be aware that the box will be delivered at just over 90 pounds.

The installation is not technically difficult, but you will need more tools than the instructions indicate to get everything together. The high torque bolts and as well as the 450 ft/lbs ball torque require some specific large wrenches and sockets. If you go through the instructions and pieces for the actual size of the bolts required, it will save you some running around to find tools. Invest in a step drill bit and it will save some hunting.

With everything in place and ready to go, this was a solid 8 hour install with a lot of low to the ground squatting and bending which you will feel the next day. If I were older (46 now), I would have a professional install this. If you do, they will need a fully loaded trailer to finish which you will also need to finish the install.

There is one piece in the instructions for installing the optional 1/2" x 1.00" SELF TAPPING SCREW into the snap up braket First, this is not really optional, but the instructions indicate to drill a 9/16" hole for this 1/2" screw which is incorrect and will cause you to not be able to tighten the screw down. The whole should be 1/2". Don't be tempted to put these in before the very last step after everything is hooked up or you will be very unhappy. The snapup brakets get moved around several times between the WD and Sway Control sections.

The only negative (if it is negative) is that for my trailer height of 16", the trunnions are only 5 1/2" of the ground which can make speed bumps and the like an interesting experience as the do contact the road as the trailer wheels go over those bumps.

If you are converting from a normal ball hitch off the back of the truck to this for the first time, your break away wire and safety chains will now be too short to connect to the truck (in all likely hood). You will likely need to either add to or replace those as well.

All in all, the system works great, is technically easy to install with all the correct tools and sufficient time.


This thing works well, as advertised. It did boost the rear end of the truck up immediately and seemed to have a positive affect on sway. I was able to back up with it as advertised.

The issue I had with it and what prevents me from scoring higher is despite the fact that I followed the instructions to the letter, the lower brackets are installed by drilling out holes and hammering in "blind" or knurled nuts. I was leery of their longevity and for good reason. After 1500 miles they wallowed out the holes and made one of the lower brackets loose.

My solution was simply to weld the lower brackets directly to the frame and its vastly superior to the install methods they advise and works great. However since not everyone is comfortable/set up to MIG welding these on and will rely on the foolish blind nuts I can only give it 3 stars.


I can't vouch for the product as yet, because I haven't installed it. I can however comment on the service & etrailers excellent way of updating the progress of the transaction. It was very efficiently & fast. I ordered the hitch on Sunday night and UPS drove up in front of the house on Wednesday about 1:30 pm and delivered it. That is great service by any ones standards. I've read the instructions some & it looks like it will take some time to install this unit. There are a number of tools that are needed to accomplish the task & not all of them are in just everybody's tool box. (unless you are a heavy equipment mechanic) which my son-in-law is, so I had access to everything I needed. A friend also bought this hitch & purchased all the tools needed to do the job so I am all set to strike out and install the hitch, as soon as it takes a turn for the better weather wise. The hitch is a massive heavy duty unit that looks to be able to handle the job with ease. When I get it installed & use it awhile I will repost a review concerning it's use & installation info including the quirks & all the things needed to measure & drill, etc. to put it to use. I again want to thank etrailer for their attention to every detail of the transaction & the prompt service & almost miraculous delivery in such a short time right to my door & in a complete state. (nothing missing) it was very well packaged to stand up to the rigors of shipping.Kudos Etrailer...

After using this hitch for a year it has performed as well as I could have expected

-- comment by: Steve - 06/14/2014


Product works great for my setup, before I had a standard weight distribution system and my 37’ camper was all over but with this trunnion setup greatly reduces my white knuckle driving I experienced before.

It does take some work to install but got it done in about 3 hrs because I checked and rechecked before drilling the necessary holes in the tongue.


Love this. Never feel sway and being able to back up without discontecting the bars really helps. Definitely would recommend

Still very happy with the system. My neighbor has Reese envy everytime he sees me backing up without having to disconnect like he does. Highly recommendit.
Richard R - 03/11/2020


OMG, the Reese straight-line weight distribution hitch is fantastic. No complaints whatsoever. Pull a 23 foot Rockwood trailer of 3,200 pounds with my 2016 Ram 1500. Pass the semi-trailers with confidence and absolutely no white knuckles. Great product.

Fantastic hitch!
Michael - 09/30/2020


Packedge arrived a day early which is good, heavy cardboard box, little damage from the long cross counry delivery, inside all o,k.
I installed the hitch as instructed without a problem, next week I hope to have a road test, it looks well built. Dodge Ram 2500 28' toy hauler.
Thanks guys.

Thanks for your letter.Your product is preforming very well. My trailer is very steady behind my track,
It s - 01/19/2018


What a piece of engineering! I haven't towed with this yet but the design looks great. I've read other reviews about how long the installation takes, the directions seem simple so I don't anticipate any problems. My unloaded, as shipped TW is 600lbs, adding a battery and full propane tanks plus the hitch weight brings the TW up to 800lbs. I should have plenty of extra capacity with these.

I just pulled 500 miles with zero sway. When being overtaken by a semi, the whole rig wants to move instead of just the camper. I find this normal and acceptable.
Edward S - 06/30/2016


It was OK. Put it on my trailer in place of a ProPride P3 so renters could use it. Drove less than 30 miles with the Reese, and the ProPride went back on. It's a much better hitch. Trailer can't sway with a ProPride.

Got a very lightly used Reese available, by the way.


Haven't had chance to use yet as I'm waiting on trailer. Product arrived as ordered. For being free shipping it arrived faster than most mail. Will up date when I get chance to use with trailer. Looking forward to do bussiness with ETrailer in future great company. Lots of help, quick to answer questions. Thanks Chuck

Pulling a 6500 trailer with Jeep Grand Cherokee Very well new trailer towed very different with this hitch never swayed felt like I didnt even have a trailer behind me compaired to just a sway bar system get system
Chuck P - 01/17/2016


I purchased my hitch just before making a trip from the Seattle area to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (about 750 miles each way). I pull a Timber Ridge 250RDS travel trailer (31', 6200 lbs dry weight) with a RAM 2500, and could not be happier with this hitch. It is spendy, but you definitely get what you pay for. 1) It does an excellent job of preventing sway and provides a solid feel, making mefeel comfortable towing at speeds over 70 MPH. 2) I have noticed very little noise coming from the hitch compared to others that pop, creak, and groan. 3) It is very easy to hook up and disconnect, compared to others that involve kicking, prying and loud noises when installing or removing the WD bars.

I called etrailer and placed my order over the phone with Karen, and she made sure the order was shipped that day. Excellent service! The only disappointment was that the product had previously been opened, and some mounting hardware was missing. So, when I went to have it installed, the technician had to improvise. Not a big deal, but I wish that had been checked to make sure all of the pieces were there, since it had been previously opened.


this is exactly what we needed
for a weight distributing hitch w/sway control, shipping and service was very good. Will use this company again. Thanks

Great, used this setup quite a few times in the past year, still doing what I bought it for. Thanks Steve C
Steve C - 12/24/2019


Excellent product. It's an easy DYI installation. It only took about an hour to install to spec. Not much to say about the weight distro, other than it's nice to have my truck riding next to normal. I was most impressed with the built-in anti-sway in high winds while crossing a large body of water. Never once did I feel the vehicle was going to go off the bridge, or any whipping of the trailer. The two felt like one unit. Highly recommend this setup

I’m still pleased with the system. It was easy to install and configure
john c - 05/18/2018


Works as described. I'm pulling a 30' Arctic Fox, approx 11,000 lbs with a 7.3 diesel. No issues, pulls smoothly and corner's well. Backing up does not require unhooking any parts.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2014 Jayco White Hawk Ultra Lite
    Most newer trucks would easily tow that weight of trailer. I'd recommend going with a 2500 just so you'd have maximum stability and more than plenty of towing capacity but some of the newer 1500 model trucks would have the capacity as well. You'd want to use a weight distribution system though for a bumper towed camper trailer that weighs that much.

  • Can You Back Up with Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System Installed
    The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 referenced in your question does indeed allow you to back up with the trailer attached since its sway control is integrated into the head assembly. There isn't a specific angle measurement that you will want to avoid but we do still recommend trying to stay as straight as possible when the sway-control is still engaged. Normal backup situations with slight angles won't be problem at all though. With that being said if you find...

  • Towing Capacity of 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5.3 Liter V8
    The towing capacity of a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 (I am assuming that's what you have) can range from 5,500 to 12,000 lbs depending on how it's equipped. By that I mean motor size, transmission, rear end gears etc. If you have the max trailer package with the 6.2 liter EcoTec you'd have a 11,900 capacity in a 4 wheel drive truck. If you have a 5.3 liter the capacity would be 11,200 lbs, and if you have a V6 you'd have a 7,600 lb capacity. If you are asking about towing in 4 wheel drive...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Controlling Trailer Sway
    For your 2016 Ford F-150, the best way to prevent your new travel trailer from sway is to use a weight distribution system with sway control to help level your truck and trailer as well as disperse the weight on your chassis. I personally think the Reese Strait-Line is the best design to prevent trailer sway so you will simply need to make sure you account for the loaded tongue weight of your trailer and any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck and make sure that total tongue weight...

    A weight distribution system would be a really great option for your 2019 Toyota Tundra towing an Imagine 2600RB. I looked up the total weight and trailer tongue weight of your trailer and it would be around 800 lbs which would be more than enough for you to really benefit from a WD system. You'll have reduced suspension sag, improved handling, and improved braking. The system I recommend is the Strait Line part # RP66084 which has a 600-1,200 lb range and the best sway control around.

    Assuming you have the standard or recommended 10-15% of your campers weight as tongue weight that will put you in the 710 to 1065 pounds of tongue weight. so we can use that and add 100 lbs. to it to cover anything you load behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle so we need to be in the range of 810-1165 lbs. for the system we choose.

  • Determining Hitch and Weight Distribution System Needed for Towing Heavier Trailer with Ford F-350
    The factory trailer hitch on your 2016 Ford F-350 features a towing capacity of 12,500 pounds so there's no particular reason to replace it with a larger unit if you don't plan on towing anything heavier than 10,000 pounds. A higher-rated hitch is just going to give you a bigger safety margin but the existing hitch on your truck is still more than capable of pulling the type of trailers you mentioned. As with any towing setup you will still just want to verify the limits on the truck...

  • Will Using A Weight Distribution System Increase Towing Capacity With a 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The use of a weight distribution system like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66084 can increase the towing capacity of your trailer hitch but it will not increase the towing capacity of your vehicle most likely. In order to find out how much you can tow, you will need to take a look at page 9-92 of your owner's manual as there are several different variances depending on options. If you do decide to go with a weight distribution system whether that be to reduce sag...

  • Is it OK If Loaded Front Fender Height is Lower with Reese Strait-Line WD System Is Installed
    The tongue weight of a trailer distributed partially up to the front axle of a vehicle is going to lower it's height from the stock height. If the spring tension you are using is allowing the trailer to sit level and is giving you the best overall towing experience it sounds like you have found the "sweet spot" and are totally fine.

  • Is There a Specific Height Truck Can be to Install Weight Distribution
    You are likely still experiencing sway because for a weight distribution system like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control # RP66084 you should have 5 links between between hook and U-bolt but no less than 4. There isn't a specified height that your truck can be to grab another link, so you can adjust as needed by raising your trailer tongue with the jack until you are level.

  • Can Trailer Hitch Tongue Weight Capacity Be Exceeded When Using Weight Distribution System
    If the 896 pound tongue weight that you mentioned is before the trailer is even loaded then I cannot recommend pulling it with your 2007 Ford Expedition even when using a weight distribution system. You are correct that a properly rated weight distribution system will alleviate some of the tongue weight that's being applied to the hitch but this is essentially why there are two ratings on your hitch, one without a WD system and one with it. The higher 900 pound capacity on your hitch...

  • Spacer Washers and Bolt Coming Loose From WD System After Backing Up Trailer
    Most weight distribution systems will allow you to back up with the spring bars still connected, however you will want to make sure to stay in a relatively straight line. If the angle of your Silverado and trailer get any more severe than just a slight turn, it is best to disconnect the spring bars before proceeding. It sounds like you may have backed up at a bit more of an angle than the system could take, which is why some of the components like the spacer washers and bolt came loose....

  • Does Weight Distribution Stop Persistent Trailer Sway
    Your weight distribution system seems to be the correct rating for your trailer. The fact you are getting sway though is not direcly related to it. WD systems are great at minimizing sway from passing semi trucks and high winds but they are not designed to prevent persistent sway as that's a loading problem. You need to get as much weight forward in the trailer as you can as it sounds like your tongue weight is too low. You also want to make sure your trailer is sitting as level as possible...

  • Rockwood Mini Lite Weight Distribution Recommendation
    The best weight distribution with sway control option we have for a trailer that weighs around 7,000 is the Reese Strait Line kit part # RP66084 as it has the correct weight range but also mainly because it has the best sway control that is designed to prevent sway before it happens. The dual cams try to force the trailer to point straight instead of allowing it to potentially sway which is why it works so well.

  • Will a Big Dip Damage a Weight Distribution System Since It Is Designed for Level Towing?
    The Reese Strait-Line weight distribution hitch # RP66084 is designed to keep your vehicle and trailer level, so a big dip could cause damage. I don't believe you will have any issues as long as the bars and hangers don't bottom out. The V shape you referenced does give me pause, so if you are concerned it is best to be cautious and connect the system after you leave the driveway.

  • Troubleshooting Strait Line Weight Distribution Spring Bars that Are Parallel with Frame Rails
    When you say they don't swivel do you mean you can move them on the hinge that attaches to the bracket that attaches to the trailer frame? It's not uncommon to use a trailer jack to lift the front of the trailer so that you can install the spring bars, but without knowing exactly how high you mean it's harder for me to say whether you are dealing with too much or not. Is it possible you either have too much spring bar tension in your setup or you are using a system rated too low? The...

  • How to Determine 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Towing Capacity with Weight Distribution System
    According to the 2015 Chevy Silverado trailering guide your 5.3L V8 could be paired with the 3.08 axle ratio, 3.42 axle ratio, or 3.73 axle ratio. The only way to determine is to look inside your drivers door frame. If the listed GCWR is 14,000 or 15,000 then you have the 3.42. If it is 12,000 then you have the 3.08 axle ratio. If it is 16,700 then you have the 3.73 axle ratio. If you take the GCWR (gross combined weight rating) and subtract the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) then...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for 2012 Keystone Summerland M-2100RB With GVWR of 7520-lbs
    You always want to choose your weight distribution hitch based off of the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, which should always be between 10-15% of that weight. With a hitch weight of 520-lbs you can expect at least a little additional weight once you're fully loaded and ready to get on the road, so we'll use 750-lbs as the loaded tongue weight for deciding; you'll want that weight to fall towards the middle of the range that the weight distribution hitch is designed for.
