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.

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") 286612

Took me about 8 hours to get it setup perfectly, but it was well worth the time spent. I pull a 20 foot v-nose trailer behind a 2014 F150 5.0. Its about 6,000 lbs with my race car in it. It used to sway a bit in the wind and not track great. This hitch really makes driving down the highway easier. No sway now, and tracks much better. I think it is well worth the time and money and would recommend this hitch to anyone. 174821

This Reese weight distribution and sway control unit is actually my second one. My experience installing the unit and then towing a 34 foot travel trailer with the first one was excellent. When I purchased a large enclosed car hauler, it was a "no brainer" to order a second one. The installation took approximately 4 hours although it could take less time if you aren't OCD like me. The trailer tows beautiful and etrailer has been very nice to work with... 476947

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This thing works well, as advertised. It did boost the rear end of the truck up immediately and seemed to have a positive affect on sway. I was able to back up with it as advertised. The issue I had with it and what prevents me from scoring higher is despite the fact that I followed the instructions to the letter, the lower brackets are installed by drilling out holes and hammering in "blind" or knurled nuts. I was leery of their longevity and for good reason. After 1500 miles they wallowed out the holes and made one of the lower brackets loose. My solution was simply to weld the lower brackets directly to the frame and its vastly superior to the install methods they advise and works great. However since not everyone is comfortable/set up to MIG welding these on and will rely on the foolish blind nuts I can only give it 3 stars. 447030

I was disappointed that the drop bar was not included . That should be stated in that specifications. When I get the missing drop bar I may write more. 669114

The adjustable shank and hitch ball are not included with this weight distribution system. We do mention in the description, in a chart just be low the specs, and as options linked as related items.

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. 231511

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. 281068

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I purchase a used trailer recently and have made several purchases from etrailer to include a Straight-Line Weight Distribution Hitch (RP 66084), 2 5/16 Ball (19286), RV Generator Plug (CAM 55333), Aqua Hose, sealing trim for roof and side seams etc... All of the products have arrived on time and are of high quality. The trunnion bar holes on the RP 66084 were missed drilled so I called etrailer(Laser) and he shipped me out replacement bars which arrived sooner than expected along with a return label for the miss-drilled bars. Products are quality, service is quality and inventory is exceptional. It is a pleasure doing business with them. 403322

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Wow-this fixed my issue. I have a Silvarado 2500 and pull a 36ft Puma camper. Weight distribution was not an issue with my truck but my trailer swayed a lot. After installation no sway issues at all. 25-30 mph winds on interstate no issues at all. No sway!!! Great product!!! Glad I did not go with the friction sway control. The system allowed me to back up with no issues. Even had to do a tight u-turn inside the camp with no issues. No noise. Can not believe what a difference this makes in pulling my camper. I still think I can make a few adjustments to make it better. Installation: took about 4 hrs-but most of that time was finding another drill bit after drilling 3 holes the bit chipped. So really could have installed within 2-1/2 hours. Very easy to install. If I had watched the video first I could have installed even faster. You will need some heavy duty tools but my in-laws had the tools. 292196

Awesome weight hitch! I pull a 28" camper with this hitch and its really nice not having to stop and break down the hitch before backing up the camper. I have about 3k miles on this setup and absolutely love it. Its also easier to store when not in use because the chains stay attached to the cams on the a frame of the trailer and not attached to the bars. So the bars arent as heavy. Thanks again etrailer 395414

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. 50034


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

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.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I bought the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW for my 18 foot trailer used to haul just under 10,000lbs of Tractor and implements on winding Tennessee roads with my 2014 Double Cab 4.6 liter Full Bed Tundra. The product works great; I almost don't realize the trailer is there. Everything is level with no drop at the front and 1/2 to1 inch drop at the back depending on what's loaded. There is normally about a 3-4 inch drop in the back. Be aware that the box will be delivered at just over 90 pounds. The installation is not technically difficult, but you will need more tools than the instructions indicate to get everything together. The high torque bolts and as well as the 450 ft/lbs ball torque require some specific large wrenches and sockets. If you go through the instructions and pieces for the actual size of the bolts required, it will save you some running around to find tools. Invest in a step drill bit and it will save some hunting. With everything in place and ready to go, this was a solid 8 hour install with a lot of low to the ground squatting and bending which you will feel the next day. If I were older (46 now), I would have a professional install this. If you do, they will need a fully loaded trailer to finish which you will also need to finish the install. There is one piece in the instructions for installing the optional 1/2" x 1.00" SELF TAPPING SCREW into the snap up braket First, this is not really optional, but the instructions indicate to drill a 9/16" hole for this 1/2" screw which is incorrect and will cause you to not be able to tighten the screw down. The whole should be 1/2". Don't be tempted to put these in before the very last step after everything is hooked up or you will be very unhappy. The snapup brakets get moved around several times between the WD and Sway Control sections. The only negative (if it is negative) is that for my trailer height of 16", the trunnions are only 5 1/2" of the ground which can make speed bumps and the like an interesting experience as the do contact the road as the trailer wheels go over those bumps. If you are converting from a normal ball hitch off the back of the truck to this for the first time, your break away wire and safety chains will now be too short to connect to the truck (in all likely hood). You will likely need to either add to or replace those as well. All in all, the system works great, is technically easy to install with all the correct tools and sufficient time. 193724

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. 691354

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. 475620

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I had experience with towing travel trailers before, but it had been a while. When we decided to buy a new trailer, the hitch setup the trailer dealer proposed just didn't seem right for the job. Doing some research on my own, I came across the etrailer.com site. From the information that was available on the site I was able to focus in on what I thought would be the best fit for my F-150 towing an 8,000 lb + trailer. When I called with questions, I was fortunate that I talked to Wayne--one of etrailer's product specialists. This was like talking to a trusted brother. We discussed a few different brands and the pros and cons; but in the end decided the Strait-Line RP66084 would be the best fit. After that conversation, I did some more research on my own and--besides discovering that Wayne's advice was fantastic and spot on--found that the Strait Line system proposed was top ranked. The features I was looking for: (1) Leveling (weight distribution) capabilities (2) Sway control (3) Safety (4) Tracking (holding the trailer steady behind you when taking curves (5) Ability to back up without having to get out of truck and manually release a brake bar and (6) simple enough to install for a shade tree mechanic. The Strait-Line fit the bill and I'm very appreciative that etrailer.com has experts--rather than sales-focused pushy people--to help you make the right decision. I've pulled my trailer with ease and the Strait-Line has lived up to every expectation. And etrailer.com's price was great and the shipping had it delivered sooner than expected. It's rare when you can say you are COMPLETELY SATISFIED with a product, service, quality, and price--but I can that about my purchase of the Strait-Line RP66084 from etrailer.com 199001

The hitch worked wonderful. I was scheduled to have it installed by others but when they saw the unit they got scared, I think. So, having read and re-read the instructions myself by this time, I decided to go it myself. It took all of 4 hours and the following day we left on a five week trip to the northwest US. It performed really well. We had taken two shorter trips without it and I can really feel the difference it makes in windy conditions and weight distribution. 216549

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 . 287015

If you have anything in the way on your 2012 Kodiak 200QB travel trailer that will keep the lift brackets from being attached over the frame you can use the Reese Bolt-On Chain Hangers, part # RP58305, which would allow you to bolt the chain hanger to the side of the trailer frame. The bolt-on...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and 2015 Airstream 22FB Travel Trailer
    First, as long as the gross trailer weight and hitch weight are within the capacities of your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser then it will be fine. Check your vehicle owners manual to make sure it is compatible with weight distribution. I know that many trailer dealerships will sell and install some . . . lesser quality weight distribution systems. They work but they do not work as well as other systems. So to at least take a look at your options I can go over some different models with you. First,...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution And Front Of Trailer Bike Rack For Jayco Swift SLX 184BH Trailer
    Based on the information you gave, the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # RP66072 will be an excellent system for a total tongue weight between 200 and 600 lbs. The total tongue weight is your loaded trailer tongue weight along with any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. This is my favorite weight distribution system because it constantly fights against sway with the dual cam system versus sliding with...

  • Angle of hitch ball on Reese 1200 trunion hitch
    Tilting the hitch ball on your weight distribution system is a final adjustment to get the trailer perfectly level and apply the correct amount of tongue weight. You need to make this adjustment, if needed, after the the vehicle and trailer are loaded and ready for travel. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Tightening Chain Links on Reese Strait Line WD System to Reduce Sway
    When using a chain hanger weight distribution system like the Reese Strait-Line # RP66072 that you referenced, you ideally want to have 5 links between the hook and U-bolt. I recommend first trying to adjust the ball mount angle a bit rearward to see if this helps your sway issues. Also make sure the cam arm is adjusted properly for your setup. I have attached the installation instructions so you can read through this procedure. In some cases 4 links might be necessary for the spring bars...

  • 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.

    Thanks for supplying all of the critical information of the trailer. This helps in choosing the correct system for your vehicle.

  • 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.

Now, assuming that the 350 lbs tongue weight is fully loaded and ready tow, then I would recommend...

  • 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...

  • 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

You would then select a weight distribution system based on this total.

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...

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.

    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...

    For a tri-ball setup to attach to a weight distribution shank like the # C17122 that you referenced you'd want the # C45802 and the # C45800 plus pins and clips # PC3 and you'd be set. For a weight distribution system then to use with this shank for a small camper the best option would be the Strait Line part # RP66072 which gives you the best sway control that works to fight sway before it starts, has a tongue weight range of 200 to 400 lbs and fits the shank you are wanting as well.

  • What Weight Distribution System Do You Recommend for a 3400 pound Trailer
    There are two systems I would recommend for your setup. Your tongue weight should be in the 400 pound range with a 3400 pound trailer so the weight distribution systems that go up to 600 pounds of tongue weight capacity are perfect for your situation. If you use a system that is heavier, it will cause a stiffer ride and will not provide any added benefit. The first system is the Reese Heavy Duty Round Bar Weight Distribution System, item # RP65509, which will work nicely with, and is...
