Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Tow where the wind comes sweeping off the Plains and need a weight distribution hitch that holds your trailer steady
  • Have a lighter weight trailer with 200 lbs – 600 lbs of tongue weight that often veers out of line with your vehicle
  • Have a lifted truck and need to be able to choose your own drop shank

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. Great 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")

the individuals at etrailer were very helpful in providing me the exact configuration for my specific application and the shipping time was extremely fast.

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 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.


Comments
Very well. An excellent hitch.

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


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

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 .

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


It really does the trick in terms of keeping down the camper sway. I can now drive on the interstate with no problems. Before I got this hitch, I just simply couldn't take the constant fighting as the camper swayed from left to right. The noise is not near as much as was advertised. It pops occasionally when making a tight turn but otherwise we just don't notice it much. The installation is worth mentioning. First, I am not fond of installing items like this. However, my wife and I took our time and installed in in a few hours. The instructions were excellent and (of course!) I still found a way to deviate from them which extended the installation time. However, in the end, it was not a terribly difficult job. This is not our first weight distribution hitch, but it will likely be our last.

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


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!!

It’s easy to hitch up and distributes the weight well but does not do much for sway control for my single axle 3500lb trailer.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I don't really have anything to compare this weight-ditrubuting hitch to because it is my first one. I had it installed on a 2021 Forest River Puma 37' foot travel trailer. I pull it with my 11 F350. Before the hitch, I hated pulling the trailer in crosswinds but after the hitch install the winds, dont seem to bother me at all. The hitch allows for tight turns and does not limit any movement. The trailer is much easier to pull and at times, I forget it is back there.

I did not install myself even though I typically would but did not want to mess up. I paid a local RV mechanic $100 to install the hitch. They completed the task in about 2 hours.

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


Was not what I hoped, did not take the sway out of my 2021 Grand Design travel trailer. The hitch is now for sale online at half the price I paid for it. I built and installed gooseneck on my trailer... It now pulls great! Too bad you can not order the trailer built that way!


Comments
It is important to make sure the loaded tongue weight of the 2021 Grand Design Travel Trailer does not exceed the weight rating of the bars for this system which are rated for between 600 lbs to 1,200 lbs. Ideally you want the loaded tongue weight of the trailer to fall in the middle of that range to combat sway. I know that you ended up converting to a gooseneck but that is something to keep in mind for the future.

  • 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...

  • Using Friction Sway Control, Trailer is Still Swaying
    Some friction sway controls are adjustable. For starters, I would recommend increasing the friction on the unit and see if that improves the handling at higher speeds. At 200 pounds on a 2850 pound trailer, you have very little weight on the trailer tongue. Not having enough of the trailer weight distributed on the trailer tongue can cause a trailer to sway. If you are towing the trailer with any gear in it, try moving it toward the front of the trailer. If this is not possible, or redistributing...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2008 Dodge Durango
    For your 2008 Dodge Durango I would recommend the Reese Strait-Line Hitch 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight / 12,000 pound gross trailer weight # 66072. With this system there are no U-bolts to conflict with bottle racks or other A-frame mounted items so it should work with your tanks and battery. To make sure this system will work you need to be sure the tongue weight, when loaded and ready to travel, does not exceed 600 pounds or that the gross trailer weight does not exceed 10,000 pounds.

  • 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...

    It sounds as if you have already taken care of a few issues that can cause excessive trailer sway. Eliminating some of the weight on the rear of the trailer can certainly help. You will also want to make sure your trailer is as level as possible when towing. Move as much weight as possible forward of the trailer axles. The ideal weight distribution would be 60 percent on the front, and 40 percent on the rear. If all this is taken care of, and you still experience trailer sway, you will...

    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 with...

  • Can Dual-Cam or SC Friction Sway Control be Added to a Pro Series Weight Distribution System
    The Pro Series head, # 58333, will accept round bar # 58336, but the bar doesn't actually have a bend in it to use dual-cam sway control and it doesn't have the right design to use the SC style friction pads.

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 Ford F150 Pulling a 4700 lb Trailer
    For you setup I would recommend a Reese Round Bar Weight Distribution Kit with Shank, 800 lbs TW / 10,000 lbs GTW, part # RP67509. 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.

  • 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...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota 4Runner Towing a 2012 Rockwood Trailer
    Based on the weight of your trailer you would want to use a weight distribution system with a lower rating than the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution w Sway Control, part # RP66561, that you have.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a Forest River R-Pod 178/180
    The weight distribution system I recommend for a Forest River R-Pod 178/180 is the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66072 which offers some of the best sway control available on the market. It is also offered without the shank which will be crucial for applications where the tow vehicle is lifted since most systems which comes with shanks won't accommodate a lifted tow vehicle. In order to choose the correct shank you really need to measure (see article below) but the Reese...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2,700 Pound Trailer and 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with 3.5" Lift
    Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Item # RP66082 is a great option for your 2,700 pound trailer. This system is rated for 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight so a 2,700 pound trailer will be within that range. The included shank offers a maximum drop of 1-1/4 inches though. Since your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is lifted you will likely need a shank with more drop to tow the trailer level. So what I recommend is to use system...

  • 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.

  • Which Weight Distribution and Sway Control System Is Recommended for a Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The best sway control is provided by dual cam high performance sway control. I would suggest the Reese Strait-Line Hitch 600 lbs TW / 12,000 lbs GTW, item # RP66072 which will handle any load that will be within the weight capacity of your vehicle. This weight distribution and sway control system works to keep sway from starting rather than just stopping it once it begins, like other systems do. With this kit you will also need a Weight Distributing Shank, like item # AMAC1. You should...

  • Which Weight Distribution and Sway Control System for a 2000 Chevy Tahoe and 19 Foot Travel Trailer
    For your application, I would recommend the Reese High Performance Trunnion System part # RP66020. This system is designed for trailers with tongue weights from 200 to 600 pounds, and the 470 pound tongue weigh of your trailer falls in this range. I would recommend the Dual Cam High Performance Sway Control System, part # 26002. The dual cam systems are pro-active, meaning they work to prevent sway from happening in the first place and stop sway very quickly when it does happen. Other...
