Is this right for you? Product Expert Lindsey S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a heavy-duty trailer with 1,000 lbs – 1,500 lbs of tongue weight that often veers out of line with your vehicle
  • Hate the tight, rigid ride you get with other systems that have built-in sway control
  • Have a lifted truck or a 2-1/2" receiver that won't work with the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches

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.

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 purchased and set this up between my 2017 F250 diesel and a 12K, 37’ travel trailer. I use it in conjunction with the Gen-Y torsion hitch. The combination of these together is the most incredible tow solution I have ever had in place. My wife is happier to experience less load transfer back into the truck on bumpy roads and I am ecstatic to have much less to no white knuckle sway issues through the windy flats and as well as passing between semi trucks. This is a bolt on so I recommend having exactly the correct drill size and type available, as I used a step drill that reamed out one of the 4 holes initially. After speaking to the manufacturer, they said I could just bolt straight through the frame with a longer bolt and nut. The brackets are already formed to accommodate that option as well. In short, I will never tow with a different setup. Only down side is it tows so well that I forget sometimes the trailer is back there on long hauls. ;) 853608

I've had this product installed for about a year. I race motorcycles and installed this on a 35' toy hauler that use at least once a month. Hooking it up to the truck is simple with the sway bars, and it helped to greatly reduce the sway travelling down the road. Toying something that large without a system like this is a safety issue, and I feel much better toying now with it on. 588723

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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

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


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

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 have a 21 foot travel trailer that I pull with a Nissan X-Terra. Before getting the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, the back of the X-Terra and the front of the trailer would be too low, creating a "V" at the hitch connection. In addition, out on the highway, the trailer would sway, particularly on the down hills, and at times would get so intense I was afraid the sideways energy created would force me into oncoming traffic or off the road to the right. After installing the Strait-Line system, the X-Terra and trailer are leveled out and the sway problem has been completely eliminated. I could not be happier with the results. I would recommend this product to anyone having these problems. Do your research to make sure you get the proper size for the unit you are pulling. 447176


Comments
A couple of months ago I purchased a 2017 Ford F150 with the built in sway control. The new truck pulls the trailer much more easily than my Nissan X-terra did. Although hooking up the trailer to just the ball hitch on the new truck is much easier than having to use the Strait-Line Weight Dist. System, I do find that the trucks built-in sway control, although adequate, does not work as well as the Strait-Line system does. The trucks built-in system can get overwhelmed by excessive sway and must rely on an automatic deceleration system to correct and control the sway, which can at times be a bit of a challenge until you get comfortable with it.

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


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 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


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

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.

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!! 567887

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Toy Hauler Tongue Weight 1,400-1,500 lbs
    The Strait Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66075 will be the better choice for your tongue weight range of 1,400 to 1,500 lbs. This system has the best sway control design on the market which fights to prevent sway before it starts. It does require some frame drilling though which I can understand is something you'd rather not do, but once it's done you'd be good to go. The holes do not affect the integrity of the frame either as the bolts being tightened where the holes are drilled...

  • Best WD System for Towing a 2018 Forest River Salem 32BHI with a 2012 Ram 2500
    I spoke with a rep from Forest River who said that the 2018 Salem 32BHI travel trailers come with a 2-5/16" coupler so you need a hitch ball of the same size.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control System For 13,800 Lb Toy Hauler
    To choose the best weight distribution system that will work for you, you will need to know the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. Add that to the weight of any cargo placed behind the rear wheel of your Ram. That will give you the tongue weight you need to use when choosing a system. You will want to try and find a system where your tongue weight falls near the middle of the system range. If you find your tongue weight is around 1,400 lbs I recommend...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control for 2007 Weekend Warrior FSC 3200
    The most important thing to consider in choosing a weight distribution system is your total tongue weight. This will include the trailer tongue weight which is usually 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer, and any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. I've attached some articles for you. My recommendation for a weight distribution system with sway control for your 2007 Weekend Warrior FSC 3200 is the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 3 Axle Boat Trailer On 2018 Ford F150 3.5 EcoBoost
    For your 1400 lb tongue weight on your 3 axle Venture boat trailer, I recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 17,000 lbs GTW, 1,700 lbs TW # RP66075. This weight distribution hitch will require a separate 2-1/2 inch shank like the Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank # RP54976 or # RP54977 for a deeper drop. Your truck is rated for up to 13,200 lbs towing according to Ford, so it can handle this towing capacity. If you truck has a 2 inch trailer...

  • Shank for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch to Use Reese 1700 Pound Weight Distribution
    Reese weight distribution system # RP66075 does not come with a shank so if using it with a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch you just need the appropriate shank. You can use # RP54977 with a 5-3/4 inch drop or 8-1/4 inch rise. You will also need a ball that has a 1-1/4 inch shank diameter such as # C40085.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Sway on 2014 Keystone Impact 301 Toy Hauler with Reese Weight Distribution
    The most important thing about picking the right weight distribution system for a setup is the loaded tongue weight of the setup as it will be towed. Also, having it properly set up for the trailer is very important. With that being said, if the tongue weight of your setup is going to fluctuate within the range of the weight distribution system quite a bit you will have to set it up differently based on that. I attached the installation instructions for the Reese Weight Distribution...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 36-foot Toy Hauler Travel Trailer
    Some weight distribution systems are offered with the L-shaped steel shank portion included, such as the Curt shank # C17124. This is what installs in your hitch and holds the head assembly. Others allow you to choose your own based on the amount of height rise or drop you need to keep your trailer level when it is hitched. The Curt unit I referenced is intended for use in the drop position and provides up to 13-1/2-inches of drop to work with a truck whose hitch ball is substantially higher...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2015 Ford F-250 and Trailer with 1,600 Pounds Tongue Weight
    Based on the amount of tongue weight your trailer has (1600+) the Reese Strait-Line weight distribution system, # RP66075, is one option. It is rated for 1,000 to 1,700 pounds tongue weight so as long as you stay within that range this system will work. To get to that maximum capacity you will need a 2-1/2 inch shank with the system, # RP54977. And for a ball you can use # 63840. Another option is the Blue Ox SwayPro system # BXW2000 which is rated for 1,500 to 2,000 pounds tongue...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System And Ball Mount For 2017 Ram 2500 SRW

This is a very durable hitch that is corrosion resistant and easy to use.

  • Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control RP66075 Shank Recommendation
    Basically any weight you add to front of a trailer in front of the axles is going to add to the tongue weight. So yes, the weight you added in the master bedroom of your trailer will need to be considered as tongue weight. The tongue weight of the # RP66075 is 1,000-1,700 lbs so if your setup has a tongue weight that falls in that you still would be good. For a shank that is designed to fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch like what you have the part # RP54977 would be a great option. For a...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 1,300 lb Tongue Weight
    The weight distribution system I highly recommend for you is the Reese Strait-Line, which does not control sway, but prevents it by using a cam system that controls the spring bars by applying pressure to each of them. Other weight distribution systems simply help control the sway, but the Strait-Line actually prevents it, which is why I often recommend it, particularly with larger tongue weights. Choosing the right system will depend on your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue...

  • Recommended Distribution Hitch For 1480 lb Dry Trailer Tongue Weight
    I do understand your situation and I am here to help. What the dealer was trying to say is that trailer Tongue Weight (TW) is typically, about 10 to 15 percent of the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW), and a system should be picked with those figures in mind. Total Tongue Weight (TTW) also refers to the tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of the cargo that sits behind the rear axle of your vehicle.

    Selecting an appropriately-rated weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system for a trailer like the Work and Play 30WRS tandem-axle toy hauler requires knowing the actual tongue weight (TW) of the trailer when it is fully loaded, with all gear and supplies in place, water and propane tanks filled, etc. Dry hitch weight alone can get you in the ballpark but you really need the actual TW with all of your items in place, to which you will add the weight of any cargo behind the rear...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For 1997 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 w/ 10,000 lb Towing Capacity
    Your 1997 Suburban K2500 4x4 has a 10000 lbs max trailer weight according to your owner's manual, so you cannot pull a 12,000 lb fully loaded trailer. You can pull the 12,000 lb capacity trailer at a maximum load of 10,000 lbs. There are hitches that are available as you stated that rated higher than your vehicle capacity. Unfortunately that only means that the trailer hitch receiver can handle that weight, not that your vehicle's transmission, engine, and suspension can handle that weight....

  • Determining Correct Weight Distribution System for 11,000 Pound Trailer
    As you referenced in your question, determining your towing setup's total tongue weight is the most important factor when choosing a properly rated weight distribution system. The total tongue weight will be the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (as if loaded and ready for a trip) plus any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your Dodge Ram.

    You are correct that the Reese Strait-Line # RP66075 is going to require some drilling into the frame for installation. That weight distribution system is a heavy-duty model for 2-1/2" hitches, and each of the systems available for that size hitch receiver is going to require drilling. I've attached a link to a video review of the Strait-Line for you, as well as a link to our page with each of our weight distribution systems that fit 2-1/2" hitches.

  • Best Weight Distribution and Sway Control for 10,000 lb Trailer
    Since tongue weight is typically 10-15 percent of the total weight of a trailer and your trailer weighs 10,000 lbs the best sway control and weight distribution is the part # RP66075 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lb and features the most effective sway control at preventing sway before it starts. Then for a shank that will do the drop you need as well you'd want the part # C17123 and then for a hitch ball # A-90 and you'd be set!
