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 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, this weight-distribution system includes an adjustable shank and flexible, powder coated steel, round 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.


Block-Style Washer

Unique Features of Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, block-style washer on the Reese system makes adjusting the tilt of the weight-distribution head a snap. This uniquely shaped washer can be rotated and positioned between blocks on the weight-distribution head for simple, secure positioning. And the numbered sides provide reference points should you need to adjust your system between different tow vehicles. 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 to obtain the desired tilt.



The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight-distribution head and secure with pins 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.


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.

Simply fantastic hitch, it did not reduce sway, it eliminated it 100%! Towing roughly a 6000 lb. camper with a 2015 Ford F150, I have no fear or concerns running the interstates at 70mph. There are time when I have forgotten I am towing the camper because it performs so well! Thanks etrailer for recommending this hitch to solve the issues I was experiencing prior to this installation.




by:

This hitch works great pulling my Lance 2375 trailer. Install was not a problem except for the day I did it was 100 degrees. I like that I don’t have to disconnect the anti sway to backup.

Did the job I wanted.Pulled trailer about three hunderd miles. Handled good. Weigth is 6800 lbs, with hitch of 700 lbs. Have a ford, expedition, 2004, with 5.4L.

Based on previous use of the Reese hitch for horse trailers. Will update once I get it installed on our Lance 1995.

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


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.


Comments
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


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

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'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.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Works great on a older 28 ft. 6000lb. restored Airstream with a F150 4x4 with anti sway electronics. Without we could only go about 55 mph and the trailer would sway. The truck would warn us to slow down. The install was a bit complex we were not too sure of the angle of the hitch but we followed directions and it works. We traveled about 6k miles on two trips. It stopped the sway even at 70mph . Many a giant truck flew by at 80+ it started to sway but the bars prevented it. Backing and tight turns are no problem. Adjusting the chains require some work and disconnecting, reconnecting a pain. would highly recommend to any one .

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


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

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

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.

This is a quality product from Etrailer.com.
It
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 etrailer.com. You wont go wrong with this combination.

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.

  • Which Weight Distribution System and Sway Control Should I Use for a 2006 GMC Yukon XL
    I would recommend the Reese Round Bar Weight Distribution System with Dual Cam Sway Control, part # RP66087. This system will handle tongue weights from 600 to 1200 lbs tongue weight, so it would be ideal for your needs. The included dual cam sway control system is the top-of-the-line system as it works to not only correct sway, but to prevent it from happening in the first place.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 19 Foot Airstream Trailer with 400 lb Tongue Weight
    Keep in mind that when determining tongue weight you will also have to include the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle, as well as any gear stowed in the Airstream. We refer to this as the as-towed tongue weight of the trailer. Ideally, you want the as-towed tongue weight of the trailer to fall right in the middle of the effective range of the weight distribution system you choose. The RP66086 has a effective range of 200-600 lbs, while the range of the RP66087...

    For your 2008 Nissan Xterra, adding weight distribution, Reese Round Bar Strait-Line Hitch with Shank, # 66087, will help to alleviate your trailer sway problem but will only increase tongue weight capacity to 600 pounds. That should be just enough for your trailer. The Strait-Line system works well because it uses pro-active sway control that stops trailer sway before it starts. So the dual-cam system will out perform the friction bars by a great deal. This should take care of the sway...

  • Do the Holes Drilled into Trailer Frame for Sway Control Affect Frame Integrity
    If the plate of your old sway control system interferes with the installation of the dual cam sway control of the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66087 then it will need to get removed. The additional bolt holes should not affect the integrity of your trailer frame. The holes are far enough apart that you would be fine. Be sure you locate the bracket in the correct position on your trailer frame. I attached a picture that shows how to find the correct spot.

    I have been looking at the instructions for the Strait-Line Weight Distribution Dual Cam System, part # RP66087.
