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
  • Have a lifted truck and won't be able to use the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches
  • Have a lighter weight trailer with 200 lbs – 600 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 to stop trailer sway before it begins, this weight-distribution system has flexible, powder coated steel, trunnion spring bars that create a level ride for both your trailer and your tow vehicle. Shank sold separately. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Reese.

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 Strait-Line Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese Strait-Line 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 the Strait-Line 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. 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.

This setup really improved my ride. I was looking for both weight distribution and sway control for my '08 Yukon pulling a 24' vintage Streamline. Trailer weight about 4000 lb, tongue weight about 650 lb. Even though these spring bars were rated a little lower than my actual tongue weight turned out to be, the ride they delivered was great. The installation instructions for the entire system were extremely detailed and complex, but I followed them carefully step by step and achieved a very good outcome. I also installed an electric tongue jack which made connecting and disconnecting this hitch much, much easier. Wouldn't use a weight distribution hitch without one. Price, advice, and service great as always. Thanks etrailer.

I am very pleased with this product because it solved my sway problem on our new travel trailer. I tried towing with just a ball and receiver hitch, bought a chain type equalizer hitch and then added a stabilizer bar and still had problem with swaying. I had in mind to purchase a different type system but Katie suggested this one. It works very well and makes pulling this trailer more enjoyable and much safer. Before I installed this hitch if I had a truck pass me they would just about blow me off the road! Now I can feel the wind move it just a little (I would call this "normal")

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


I have used the Reese weight distribution and sway control system twice now over the past year to tow a 6K pound, 30'Jayco travel trailer with my 2014 4x4 Tundra Platinum (which had, at the time of purchase, the largest tow capacity of any 1500 truck on the market). Before having the system installed, the trailer felt like a sail behind my truck and was pushing me around - felt like I was navigating an ocean liner. After the system was installed, I've taken the trailer over one of the most challenging (and beautiful) highways in the country - HWY 299 in Humboldt/Trinity County, California. This trek has steep grades, many poorly-banked hairpin turns, and gusty conditions, and I could barely tell I was towing anything. Huge difference in performance, and tremendous improvement in my peace of mind. Would highly recommend the system. Note: I also have an aftermarket brake controller on the Tundra as the '14 model didn't come with an integrated controller. In TOW-HAUL mode, that truck has no problem in the muscle department towing that trailer, just needed the extra security/stabilization of the Reese system.

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


This is definitely one of the very best weight distribution/sway control systems on the market. The travel trailer moves smoothly down the road with no wandering whatsoever. Large tractor trailers barely move the travel trailer as they pass by. I've taken several trips since buying this system and it consistently preforms very well. It's a great system I highly recommend this product.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I use this to pull a 3500lb travel trailer behind my 2007 BMW X3. We just completed a 4000 mile road trip with this hitch, traveling on every difficult windy curvy hilly mountain and coastal road from San Diego to Vancouver and back. The PROS: Easy to install, attach and detach. It distributed the weight well, and we had no problems with sway. The CON: It moans and groans on turns like an old man that forgot to take his pain meds. Even when it’s been lubricated.


Comments
The noise you describe is a function of the metal on metal contact that provides the anti-sway component of the system. Because lubricating the contact points would defeat the sway control function, the noise is for the most point unavoidable.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is a super heavy hitch for a large heavy camper. Take your time setting up the sway control bars and it will reward you with probably the best performance that will be had with a heavy, long bumper pull trailer. The hitch is a little noisy during turns, but that doesn’t bother me. My F250 4x4 handles our 32’ Jayco toy hauler with no drama after finding the right chain tension. Very happy with the hitch. Thanks Lori at etrailer.

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
-- comment by: Josh - 08/08/2014

Weight distribution can help handling and steering when properly set up. This system also has an integrated sway control system also improves handling and stability. With your travel trailer loaded and ready to go, having about 650 pound of tongue weight, this system is rated appropriately for your needs. If you are experiencing too much front end sway you may need to make some adjustments to place more of the load on the front axle These adjustments can be made at the angle of the head. Please see your specific installation instructions for more details.

This is a great hitch! I pull a 35 foot travel trailer with it and I have a completely flat towing experience with this hitch. I have no sway while pulling and it is very easy when I hook up and go as well as store because the chains are attached to the trailer and not the bars. Very pleased with this 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.

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 .

I tow a 2800 lb travel trailer (loaded) with a 2015 Kia Sedona. Everyone told me this hitch was overkill but that’s what I wanted. It gives you so much control and I believe makes towing much safer for everyone. It is a little harder to install but it’s worth the extra time. etrailer was great throughout the whole buying process.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Reese RP 66073, install on a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. Used a drop shank because my truck (stock) hitch sits at 19”. Bought this product for a 7’X18’ V-nose trailer, system has a “standard” neck and this system is essentially perfect, had concerns at first. System is understandably overkill at first thought. I plan on pulling in the neighborhood of 9000lb from the coast of GA to Colorado Springs. I did not want to revisit this later on or part way through my trip! So getting this system should prevent any of the sway and weight sag during my haul. First day of install, system seems to work very well! Had concerns about the trunnions staying on at full turn but a full day of in town driving with and without load and zero issues. My setup is not a “forget it’s back there” configuration but a noticeable difference in pulling quality and stability overall! Finding something in the realm of 450’ pounds to torque the hitch ball is hard to do unless your in a specialty field. An install video online claims the rivet helicoils are 9/16, the system I received calls for an 11/16 hole for the helicoils. Local hardware stores skip right over 11/16 so if your at a lowes or the like, you will have to go with a unibit if this is the route you choose to take be very careful because going to the 11/16 setting will make for a loose fit for the rivets!! If you have the option I would suggest a 5/8” bit and file to get that snug fit that is required to ensure engagement on closed frame trailers! Other than that install was relatively painless. Lots of pulling and tightening if your having to install this manually!!

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.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


We bought a very large travel trailer after having owned on before. With the first camper I eventually ended up with a Reese cam sway control as the only way to control sway in Kansas cross winds. I made the mistake with our new camper of following the recommendation of the dealer on a hitch for the new camper (36ft 9600lbs unloaded). It was really just a variation of equalizer bars and man what a mistaKe that was! I looked for the Reese cam system but wasnt finding it in my searches - then realized they changed the name to the Strait-line. This thing is amazing! What a difference in the wind. And you back up without doing anything to the hitch which I guess can be an issue with 4-points. When setting it up follow the instructions to the letter, and always think “keep thongs symmetrical.” It wont disappoint. Love it.

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.

I have been using this hitch for about 2 years now on my 20' flatbed trailer. It has been done everything I expected and excels at what it is designed to do. I have had my trailer loaded up to it's max weight (12k) on more than one occasion and this hitch keeps everything nice and level. I have never experienced any sway, but I am careful to load the weight on my trailer correctly. I had to use a drop shank #RP3344 since I have a 6" lift and 35" tires. My trailer sits perfectly level. etrailer is awesome - fast shipping and top notch customer service!!

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Hitch Parts
    We no longer carry Husky weight distribution systems, so unfortunately we wouldn't have any replacement parts.

If you are perfectly level, when fully loaded, and the ride is good with the hitch ball straight up no further adjustments are needed. If you need to add tongue weight for a better ride then you may find that you need...

  • Sway Control System Compatible With 2016 Kia Sorento V6 AWD
    This system isn't rated for use with Weight Distribution Systems, so the constant upward force could hurt your hitch and take it out of warranty. Using a WD system will not increase the rated capacity of your hitch or the listed tongue weight capacity of your vehicle as it is stated in your owners manual but many people like the sway control. If you don't have a trailer hitch receiver, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class IV - 2" # 75908....

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution and Sway Control System for 24-ft Car Hauler Trailer
    The Reese SC Weight Distribution and Sway Contro System # RP66072 that you referenced is an advanced trunnion-bar set-up that works with tongue weights from 200 - 600-lbs and fits trailer frames up to 2-1/2-inches wide. Its lift brackets require approximately 5-1/2-inches of space along trailer frame. If your measured tongue weight is in the 400-lb range then this system would work well for you. The key for selecting a weight distribution system is to know your fully loaded trailer's...

  • Can any Portion of Weight Distribution System be Reused when Upgrading to Strait Line Dual Cams
    What weight distribution system do you have? Is it a Reese round bar system? If so there's a chance you could replace the spring bars with ones that have angled ends that would work with the # RP26002 but if you have a different brand the only thing you'll be able to reuse is the shank. So in that case you would want the # RP66072 which comes with everything but the shank. The shanks of WD system brands are all made to the same specs thankfully so they can interchange pretty easily.

  • How to Alleviate Sag on the Rear End of a 2005 Ford F-150 Towing a Toy Hauler
    Toy hauler trailers are notorious for having very heavy tongue weights, often up to 15 or 20 percent of the loaded trailer weight. Just because the F-150 itself is not made for very heavy duty loads, you will probably see some sag with whatever you do, but there are some things you can do to relieve some of the pressure on the rear end. I would try moving your load back from the front of the trailer to see if that alleviates some of the sag you are experiencing. For an example, even...

  • Recommendation on a Weight Distribution Hitch for a 2013 Ford Escape.
    When trying to decide on the proper weight distribution system for your towing rig, you will need to know the total tongue weight of your set-up. The total tongue weight will be a fully loaded ready to tow trailer, plus any weight located behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. I have attached an article that will explain how to find your total tongue weight of your vehicle and trailer. Now, assuming that the 350 lbs tongue weight is fully loaded and ready tow, then I would recommend...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 Ford F150 Pulling a 4700 lb Trailer
    For you setup I would recommend a Pro Series RB2 Round Bar Weight Distribution Kit with Shank, 800 lbs TW / 10,000 lbs GTW, part # 49569. This system has a max tongue capacity of 800 lbs, and is a round bar setup. The most notable difference between trunnion and round bar setups is how they attach to the head of the weight distribution system.The round style bars slide up into the head and are held in place with clips. The trunnion style bars slide into the head from the side or back.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Jeep With 7x12 Dual Axle Enclosed Trailer
    For a weight distribution system, you want to base your decision off of total tongue weight and features like anti-sway. The total tongue weight is not just the loaded tongue weight of the trailer, but also includes any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. So any supplies you load in the back of your Jeep will also add to that number. The sway control that is integrated in your Jeep really doesn't help the sway of the trailer directly. It basically adds braking...

  • Brake Controller, 7-Way, and Weight Distribution for a 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2015 Evolution E3
    First, for your 2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser, let's look at 7-Way connectors and brake controllers. To add both you will need 4- and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. Your 4-Way will plug into the 7-Way and then you just have to hardwire the remaining wires and brake controller. All the wiring you will need is included in the kit. For a brake controller I recommend the P2, # 90885. It is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. I have included some helpful links that cover the ETBC7 installation. For...

  • How to Choose a Weight Distribution System for a 2007 FJ Cruiser Towing a Horse Trailer
    To ensure that you choose the correct weight distribution system for your horse trailer, we will need to know some information about your trailer. The most important factor to consider when purchasing a weight distribution system is the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. Each weight distribution system that you look at will have a tongue weight capacity range. You will want to choose a system that encompasses the tongue weight of your trailer. For...

  • Are The Pin Clips Available For The Lift Brackets On The Reese Weight Distribution # RP66072
    On the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution, part # RP66072, you can use the Reese Replacement Clips for Weight Distribution Uplift Brackets, part # 58029. These clips are used to lock the yoke of the snap-up bracket in the raised position. They come in a set of two clips. I also have the Reese Replacement Lift Bracket, part # RP21501, which is the whole lift bracket with set screw bolt and the safety pin clips.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for V-Nose Trailer with 450 Lb Tongue Weight
    I do have options for you but using a weight distribution system on a v-nose trailer causes problems for most systems as there is no place to mount the clamp-on or bolt-on frame brackets. That said, I do still have an option for you in the in the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Chain Hangers for Reese Weight Distribution Systems part # RP58305. This system in addition to working with v-nose trailers also provide class leading sway control. For a 450 lb tongue weight I recommend...

  • Best Weight Distribution and Sway Control Option for 1998 Durango
    Typically, we figure trailer tongue weight as being from 10 to 15 percent of the weight of the fully loaded trailer. You have provided me with the weight of the items placed on the trailer, but not the weight of the trailer itself. When figuring tongue weight, the weight of any items placed behind the rear axle in the tow vehicle must be considered as well. We have an online page that shows how to determine the tongue weight of the trailer using a length of pipe, some scrap lumber and...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for Towing a 5800 GVW Heartland FX23 Camper
    To haul a trailer with the weight you listed, I would recommend that you use a Strait-Line Weight Distribution with Sway Control, part # RP66073. When you pick out a weight distribution system, you want to make sure it has weight capacities that encompass the weight of the trailer you are planning on towing, as well as any weight that will be loaded behind the rear axle. With that being said, I can not safely recommend you pull a trailer that weighs more than what your manufacturer recommends...

  • Hitch, Weight Distribution System, Sway Control, Brake Controller, Wiring for 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    Weight Distribution is a good idea if you are pulling at least 50 percent of your vehicles weight. Many good WD systems come with sway control, too, so we will look at those. First, you will need a hitch. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13367, which is a custom fit item for your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, unless your FJ is equipped with the auxiliary fuel tank. The hitch will bolt to the frame and this one will install in about 30 minutes. I have included a link to the instructions...

  • Which Weight Distribution and Sway Control System Should I use on a 1994 Chevy 3500 with Car Trailer
    In order to select the best suited weight distribution system for your setup, you will need to know the total loaded weight of the trailer, the 2,700 pounds for the car, 500 pounds for the golf cart, the weight of anything else in the trailer and the weight of the trailer itself. You would then select a weight distribution system based on this total. The need for a Sway Control system is going to be based on how the weight is distributed in the trailer and the length of the trailer....

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation and Information for a 2010 Ford Flex FWD 3.5L
    Yes, I can explain what the tip up brackets are. They are the brackets that are mounted to the top of the trailer frame and that the chains, at the end of the spring bar in a weight distribution system, are attached to. The tip up brackets are lowered, the chains are attached and then the brackets are tipped up, applying pressure to the spring bars, which in turn distributes weight to the trailer and vehicle axles and reduces the tongue weight on the ball mount and trailer hitch. This weight...
