Recommended Weight Distribution System For 1200 To 1500 LBs Tongue Weight Capacity


Ive pretty much decided on the reese straight line with dual cams and 1200lb trunnion bars. My concern is that I want to be sure I get the right model number so at a later time I could upgrade to the 1500lb bars. Im sure that I read on here somewhere that some of the older models are not compatible with the new bars. Can you tell me the correct model numbers I should be looking for? Thanks

The best thing for you to do is to use a system like the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution, part # RP66075. This system handles tongue weight from 1000 lbs to 1700 lbs. This would work for you because you would not need to worry about upgrading at a later date and making sure the system matches. Any system 1,500 lbs and higher will require a 2-1/2 inch receiver.

To make sure everything is level i recommend the Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank, part # RP54977. This shank is designed for a trunnion system only, and features a 5-3/4 in drop and an 8-1/4 inch rise.

I have attached a helpful article about weight distribution and a product review video for the shank you can check out.
