  • Have a lifted truck or 2-1/2" receiver and won't be able to use the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches

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 Trunnion-Bar Weight Distribution

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. 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 (sold separately).

Excellent product and excellent service! I pull a Arctic Fox 32A with a 2010 Chev Silverado 2500 HD with a Duramax. The tongue weight is 1430 pounds. I upgraded from a Husky 12,000 pound hitch to the Reese 17000 pound RP66006 weight distribution hitch, and the RP54977 Shank. There has been a remarkable improvement in the ride, much smoother, and no bouncing. And , it is level. I can't say enough about the great service from Katie D at etrailer 466893


Comments
I am extremely happy with the Reese hitch I bought. And, I have to say, the after sales service from etrailer is outstanding. Not many businesses would follow up a year after the sale.

  • Weight Distribution System for 2017 Ford F-250 with Golf Cart in Bed Towing Outback 332KF
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Since golf carts are typically...

  • Weight Distribution System for Ford F250 with Lance Camper and Torklift Superhitch Extender
    I think a fair assessment would be around 1,500 lb based on the numbers you mentioned. It does look like your truck isn't sagging though which is a pretty good sign. For a 1,500 lb tongue weight we have the Reese Titan kit part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lb tongue weight range. Then for a higher rated shank that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch size we have theTorklift part # TLM9010 which has a 30k capacity and works with the Reese WD system heads and the Torklift...

I've attached an article to assist. You are correct that your current system is underrated for your application. My recommendation is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37140ET rated for total tongue weights between 1,000 and 1,400 lbs.

  • Choosing The Right Weight Distribution System
    A weight distribution system is needed when the trailer being towed weighs more than 50 percent of the towing vehicle's weight or the vehicle sags when the trailer is coupled to the vehicle. There are a few things to consider when choosing a system that will work best for you. First, your trailer hitch will need to be rated to be able to use a weight distribution system. You will need to know 2 things when considering a system. You will need to know your gross trailer weight(GTW). This...

    When choosing a weight distribution system you will want one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the trailer tongue weight when loaded and ready to tow and that also includes the weight of any gear loaded behind the rear axle of your 2011 GMC 2500 HD.

    For a dry tongue weight of 1,250 lbs you'd want a higher rated weight distribution system like the Reese Titan part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs to 1,700 lbs. This system is about as easy to install and use as any of them are, but what will really make the install easier is a powered a-frame jack. Reason being when you install a WD system you have to hitch the trailer to the truck's hitch ball and then use the jack to raise the rear suspension of the truck slightly...

We have the Reese Titan part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lbs which would work well. Then for a hitch ball we have the part # BWHB94004 which has a 30k capacity. Then for a 2-1/2 inch hitch shank with a 17k capacity we have the part # RP54977 which would work well.

    You were told correctly, you may not need a sway control system. Sway is dependent on a lot of factors including things like trailer length, load arrangement in trailer and road conditions. In any case, I will recommend a weight distribution system that is set up to easily add a sway control system if you decide you want it or it becomes a necessity. Your trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or GVWR of 7,580 pounds, meaning that the trailer when fully loaded cannot weight more than...

    The best way to select a weight distribution system for towing your 32 foot Cavalier travel trailer with your 1998 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton truck is to weigh the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow.

Armed with this information you can select a weight distribution...

The best solution that will give you additional benefits is to use a weight distribution system. These systems where designed to take the squat out...

  • Is Weight Distribution and Sway Control Necessary on 2011 Keystone Towed by 2011 Silverado 2500
    Any time the trailer weighs more than half the weight of the vehicle, we recommend weight distribution. The OEM sway control is similar to a traction control system. The vehicle can sense trailer sway by the movement of the rear of the vehicle. Power is then sent to one wheel or the other in order to combat trailer sway. I do not have any personal experience to be able to say how well it works, and the comments I have heard about it are not definitive one way or the other. My best...

  • Matching Shank With 2 Inch Receiver for Reese Titan Weight Distribution System
    The best shank for the Reese Titan Weight Distribution # RP66006 to fit in a 2" receiver is the Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP54998 because it is the shank with the highest capacity at 16,000 lbs which is the closest you can get to matching the Titan's 17,000 lb capacity.

    To install the Reese Titan Weight Distribution # RP66006 on a second trailer would basically just require you to install a second set of frame brackets on the trailer.

Aside from that you would need to set the system up for each trailer with the correct amount of spring bar tension based on the tongue weight.

    I looked up some specs on the Forest River Rockwood V 2715VS and found that it would have a tongue weight of around 1,100 lbs and it has a V-nose. Before I get into the best weight distribution system for your setup you should note that they all make some noise. I will try to point you towards one that isn't quite as noisy. So for the system itself you'll want the Titan by Reese part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs to 1,700 lbs. You'll need a matching shank that...

For example the Reese Titan weight distribution system part # RP66006 has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lbs and with it you could use the Titan drop shank # RP54977 which can do up to 5-3/4 inches of drop.

What you can use is an Equal-I-zer system, # EQ37120ET as an example, and then add 2 outer link plates, # EQ90-02-5378, sold in quantities of 1, and 2 inner link plates, # EQ90-02-5208, also sold in quantities of 1.

    If your motorhome does indeed have a hitch with a 10000 lb capacity, it means that the hitch is capable of towing a trailer weighing up to 10000 lbs. To confirm this, the hitch should have a sticker or plate on it listing the capacities. The tongue weight capacity should also be listed. Tongue weight is the amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the receiver (or the maximum downward force exerted).
