Spring-bar hangers with integrated friction pads help to reduce sway on this weight-distribution system. Flexible, powder coated steel, trunnion spring bars create a level ride for both your trailer and tow vehicle. Adjustable shank included.
|Included w/ RP66157||Required - Sold Separately||Optional Add-Ons|
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.
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.
The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese 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 this 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.
The integrated friction-style sway control on the Reese SC system reduces trailer sway caused by winds, winding roads and sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction material that lines the bottoms of the hangers creates just enough resistance with the shifting spring bars to prevent any further side-to-side movement. In addition, these unique platform-style brackets make installation a snap. The included lift handle lets you hook up the spring bars with limited use of your trailer jack in just four easy steps.

This worked great! I have a 33' boat on a tri-axle trailer with surge brakes. While a bit pricey compared to some of the other products out this one allowed the surge brakes to work correctly. Installation took about 2-3 hours and I had used a couple of extra hands to help out. Here is the final product: 82045

I purchased this to replace an existing Reese weight distribution hitch that was beginning to wear. Installation was pretty easy although you will need to raise and lower the tongue a few times to make adjustments. Luckily for me I just added a motorized tongue jack! For me the total installation time took about 90 minutes. I do have a compressor and air ratchet that helped speed up this process. Most of the bolts are dimpled to ensure that they won't loosen which makes tightening by hand a little tough. This also replaces my old sway control bar as it's integrated into this product...one less thing that I need to carry. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase! 87555

Excellent product. Night and day difference over original snap up chain setups. No sway at all in any condition. No problem making turns in tight spaces or backing into spaces. The only thing I would recommend is a tongue jack with lots of travel or carry extra blocks to put under jack as you have to crank the front of trailer and back of truck very high to get spring bars into brackets. To install have good knowledge of distribution systems because the instructions are TERRIBLE! The people at etrailer.com are incredible and can answer any question you may have. They have a customer for life. 78404

Called etrailer rep and they guided me down the trail for the reese hitch. I'm glad they did i pulled little over 200 miles this weekend for true test and it was like a dream. This time it had me going down interestate looking for big trucks and trailors to see if could get any sway. Last time with old hitch had me white knuckling on white line.The setup time was great it would have taken alot less time if my electric tongue jack wouldn't have died!! But glad to see that etrailer sells those as well cause looks like i need one. 98078

Etrailer had the best pricing I could find. The time it took them to get it shipped to me was excellent. Very happy with the hitch I purchased also it was exactly what I was looking for thank you! Can't beat free shipping for something that weighs 75 lbs either. 127548

Very effective stabilization and sway reduction for my 3500 lb travel trailer. Be sure to keep bar sockets greased to prevent wear which will compromise your tension angle. Learned the expensive way as this is my second time purchasing it. Note the kit now actually ships a heavier duty draw-bar (#3212) than what's pictured on the product page (#54970). My lower back prefers the lighter draw bar (15 vs 25lbs) since it's load rating is adequate for this kit, and E-trailer swapped it out on request. Excellent service from E-trailer as always, which is why I always prefer to buy my gear here when possible. 77979

The provided installation instructions and etrailer videos were very helpful. The bolt-on hangers with sway control pads were easy to install (no welding!) and could be positioned on the frame to avoid the propane tanks. The hitch head tilt angle setup took me two tries, but the result was a level trailer with no tow vehicle front end lift. The spring bars easily pop onto the hangers using the lift handle once the tongue jack with trailer is raised a few inches. Towing the trailer felt very secure with no sway or bounce. 60550

Brought this product in 10/11 for my new travel trailer. Coming home (230 miles away) with trailer with this "rig", could drive by semi's at 70 mph on 2 lane road with little or sway. Taken several trips with this "rig". Love the way this "rig" performs. No problems with trailer being buffeted with side wind blow on it. 55575

Works exactly as advertised. The integrated friction brake works just fine - no side sway when passed or passing BIG RIGs. I have a rack across my trailer tong that prevents me from using the supplied trunnion tool due to limited clearance. I just use a BIG thumb screw wrench instead (while the tong is up for hitch connection) which is no problem. 81315

Received in the time frame that was stated and in good shape. Found simple to fit to trailer and it works great. Hardly any noise when turning at slow speeds as most other brands where steel to steel contact is there where these Reese use a brake pad material on the base where the bars rest. Impressed with product and etrailer service. 142375

THIS IS A GREAT COMPANY TO WORK WITH, I RECIEVED MY HITCH QUICKLY, AND IT FIT LIKE GAIL SAID . IT TAKES GOOD PEOPLE TO MAKE A GOOD BUSSINESS AND THIS PLACE HAS BOTH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH GAIL. GARY S. WOODSTOCK,GA. 101330
Thirty six hours from order to setting on my door step?! Holy cow, what good service. Easy install and made our enclosed car hauler and HD 2500 Chevy much more stable. Especially when meeting, passing or getting passed by semis. I didn't think it would have made such a dramatic improvement. Pleasant surprise. 123497

Purchased this for Honda Pilot pulling a Jayco Jayfeather Ex-Port 17C. Tow vehicle and trailer are now level and ride/handling is great. Instructions were OK, a video from Reese for this specific model would have been great. I would definitely recommend this product and etrailer. 130016

So far I like the product. New to weight distribution so it took a few times to get the proper connections for my truck but now we are good to go. Can really tell the difference between having it and not having the new system. 38041

Loved the hitch. Made a huge differance in the tow quality.The installation video helped clarify the instruction sheet. We get lots of wind in wyoming and the hitch makes towing a pleasure 39762
