I really like the way it works. It took a little work to find room on the trailer frame but after moving the battery bracket it fit just fine. It might be a little overkill for my full size tent trailer, (Coleman Grandview SP) with two kings and a side slide out. But with a SUV tow vehicle the extra weight on the front axle was worth it. Thanks, Kevin 241306

Chevy Silverado 2500HD


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

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

Outstanding service from etrailer and their customer service rep Courtney. My Reese WDH was initially on back order from the manufacturer. Courtney kept me informed on the status of my order while I waited and then she made sure I received it as soon as possible once it was available. The hitch itself looks great. Arrived very well packaged. I just finished installing it and setting it up and it levelled out my outfit ('02 Tundra with 17' Casita trailer) very nicely. The installation instructions from the manufacturer are excellent...throrough and clear. 235223

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

etrailer service was professional and prompt. The information on the website is the best out there. The phone service was great to help me make sure I had the right product. I was disappointed to find that the product was made in China. I know this is outside of etrailers control but word needs to get back to the manufacturer somehow. 182708

I installed my new RP66151 stabilizer bars today I received from etrailer. What a difference. I had to adjust it a couple of times to get everything level but it was easy to do. They shipped them free of charge and I received them in 3 days. After driving home today it was like a completely different truck. Amazing! Thanks etrailer. 183934

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

Toyota Tundra

Review from a similar Reese SC in Weight Distribution


Ordered this hitch to offset my new toyhaulers heavy tongue weight of 1450lbs. It did a great job. My Toyota Tundra has a 6" lift so I wasn't sure the hitch would have enough drop. Without the load distribution my truck would sag 8 full inches. With the hitch set at 1 hole from maximum my truck is only dropping 2 inches which is really the perfect ride. It pops and clanks when taking turns but, my last load distribution hitch did and I think they all do.

Review from a similar Reese SC in Weight Distribution


For me, this hitch OK at best. It does tow nicely, however... The paint quality on the brackets was horrible. They were rusty coming out of the box with most of the paint peeling off. I spent some time talking to etrailer, and then on to talk to Reese, but I just ended up and sand blasting all the paint off and repainting them myself. The friction pads are well worn after a few uses during the last 6 months. My biggest complaint is the difficulty of lifting the bars into place. I have to lift the back of my Suburban and my trailer tongue about 12" before I can use the lever tool to snap the bars into place. The lever is only good for a fraction of the preload needed on the bars. Another inch or two and the tires would be off the ground. My hitch is rated for 500lb straight tongue weight, and I am using it to lift my Suburban by the trailer ball (probably 3000lb in the back). Doesn't seem right. If I keep this system, I will need to get a powered jack, but it will need to be strong enough to lift my Suburban and 1000lb of trailer tongue weight. If I add water to the trailer, the only way to adjust the weight distribution is to get some wrenches out and change bolt holes for the hangers or readjust the head angle. I'll never attempt this, however, because I'm not sure how I'd get the bars on if I add any more preload. 194940

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

Continues to work well for my needs. I have moved my boat now 5 times with it and it works very well.I would like to get replacement pads for this item - for the trunnion bars to run against. Do you have a part number for this?

Review from a similar Reese SC in Weight Distribution


WOW I had NO IDEA what I was missing towing without these setups!! WOW!! I consider myself a pretty good driver, and I've been known to take chances on the road that would cause most to recoil in fear ... but I will NEVER tow again without a weight distribution setup - especially with the added anti-sway pads! This setup is GREAT! Every so often I haul cars or trucks a couple hundred miles or so, and I've had some loads that I couldn't exceed 60 MPH towing without clearing the highway with my whipping trailer. Since installing this one, every load so far has been rock solid - makes the trailer feel like it's a part of the actual frame of your tow vehicle. AMAZING! I've towed at speeds that I will not post here, wink wink ... and it never missed a beat! Pricey, and very heavy, but WELL worth the money and added weight - trust me on that one! 172903

Review from a similar Reese SC in Weight Distribution


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

The Reese SC product is awesome. I have used both the dual cam set up, and the brake pad SC style, and I prefer the SC style. I haven't seen any difference in handling or sway, but the SC style is easier to set up. hook up, and move between trailers if needed. No drilling. No chains. Much quieter without all of the popping with the cam system. The uplift tool is great. I have not had one of those with my older SC hitch. And, of course, eTrailer is awesome! The only place I shop for my towing needs!!! 177189

This would be an excellent item if the brake pads that the bars rest on were a better quality, I took it out for a 5 mile test run and I'm gonna have to buy brake pads already, they crumble very easily. Also, I had to purchase a 2" rise ball for the hitch, I could not make a turn with out my trailer pushing my bars off of the brake pads. I can make a full turn now with the 2" rise ball added. 241601

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

The Reese hitch was as advertised, some of the bolts and nuts had to have the threads "cleaned up" due to banging around in the package, no big deal with a tap and die set. Delivery was on time and service from e trailer couldn't have been better. This company will get my business in the future as the need arises. The price was better than any other source I researched. 171082

After tons of research on distribution hitches I opted for the Reese SC product and it has worked fantastic. Easy set up and traveling with a loaded Toyhauler through sections of Wyoming we feel zero sway. It's also great to know the brake pads are also easily replaceable and always in stock. Looking forward to many years of usefulness with this great product. 241522

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

The setup took a few tries to get the correct angle on the hitch adjusted. The etrailer web site video was a big help in installing the kit. Paint on the steel clamping plates did not bond very well and flaked off leaving bare metal, poor paint job. Paint should not peel off new parts coming out of the box. 166679

I have a HD2500 Chevy 4x4 Crew Cab Dielsel Short Bed I am purchasing a 30 Rubicon toyhauler with a 1350 tounge weight. I do not want any swaying. What do you recommend. Thanks Bill

comment by: Bill R - 01/06/2013


773

If the 1350 tongue weight figure is the empty trailer, you will need to find or at least estimate what the tongue weight would be loaded. As a rule of thumb, take the total weight of the trailer loaded. If loaded properly, the tongue weight should be 10-15% of the total trailer weight. The best way to control sway would be a WD system with an integral anti-sway setup. Also, WD kits are built for tongue weight ranges. The closer you are to the center of that range, the better. For example the Reese RP66075 is built for trailers with a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 pounds. Your 1350 figure would be just about in the middle. The dual-cam sway control system with that WD is very capable of keeping a heavy long trailer tracking in a straight line behind the tow vehicle. The Blue Ox BXW1501 would be another good choice, though the range is smaller at 1,000 to 1,500 pounds tongue weight. Remember, whatever kit you select, you do not want to be on the edge of the weight range it could result in too much strength or not enough. If you need more help once you have the loaded trailer weight and loaded tongue weight, please let us know.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Weight Distribution


  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control Recommendation for a Shadow Cruiser with 528 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • The estimated 528 pound tongue weight is a little too close for comfort for a system rated up to 600 pounds. I recommend going up to the 800 pound system, # RP66153 since its range is actually 400 to 800 pounds tongue weight. The sway control part is metal on brake pad-like material. The systems are durable unless they are constantly working for some reason. Otherwise under normal conditions they should last you a good long while.

  • Comparing Reese SC Weight Distribution Systems with Round Bars and Trunnion Bars
  • The trunnion style bars, like on # RP66151, are considered more heavy duty, they are easier to install than round bars, and they offer more ground clearance than a round bar system. If you have a taller vehicle like a full size truck, ground clearance will not be an issue. Once you have installed and removed the round spring bars a few times, installation will be easy enough, though not as simple as with the trunnion style bars. And as long as you are within the capacity of either system,...

A weight distribution system with a tongue weight capacity between 600 and 1,200 lbs like the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System, item # BXW1000, or the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, item # RP66088, would be the proper choice for a system...
