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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

OMG, the Reese straight-line weight distribution hitch is fantastic. No complaints whatsoever. Pull a 23 foot Rockwood trailer of 3,200 pounds with my 2016 Ram 1500. Pass the semi-trailers with confidence and absolutely no white knuckles. Great product.

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

I can't vouch for the product as yet, because I haven't installed it. I can however comment on the service & etrailers excellent way of updating the progress of the transaction. It was very efficiently & fast. I ordered the hitch on Sunday night and UPS drove up in front of the house on Wednesday about 1:30 pm and delivered it. That is great service by any ones standards. I've read the instructions some & it looks like it will take some time to install this unit. There are a number of tools that are needed to accomplish the task & not all of them are in just everybody's tool box. (unless you are a heavy equipment mechanic) which my son-in-law is, so I had access to everything I needed. A friend also bought this hitch & purchased all the tools needed to do the job so I am all set to strike out and install the hitch, as soon as it takes a turn for the better weather wise. The hitch is a massive heavy duty unit that looks to be able to handle the job with ease. When I get it installed & use it awhile I will repost a review concerning it's use & installation info including the quirks & all the things needed to measure & drill, etc. to put it to use. I again want to thank etrailer for their attention to every detail of the transaction & the prompt service & almost miraculous delivery in such a short time right to my door & in a complete state. (nothing missing) it was very well packaged to stand up to the rigors of shipping.Kudos Etrailer...

The sway control worked OK when the hitch was new but after 8000 miles and as the hitch wore in, my 32 foot trailer became harder to control as the trailer mounted sway brackets developed flat spots on the rollers - the grinding noise which got worse as the hitch heated up from the vehicles exhaust has become unbearable. I have elected to order a different hitch / sway system which unfortunately is not sold by etrailer.


Comments
I have reached out to my contacts at Reese regarding your concerns about your Straight-Line weight distribution system and get the following information that I wanted to pass along you you: It is normal for the dual cam portion of the hitch to develop wear or flat spots on the rollers. The spring bars constantly move fore and aft on the dual cam and they will wear. We maintain this metal on metal friction to minimize sway. Yes the metal on metal contact will create noise when making turns and more noticeable when making turns at slow speeds. This is all part of how the system works with all the parts and pieces.

It was OK. Put it on my trailer in place of a ProPride P3 so renters could use it. Drove less than 30 miles with the Reese, and the ProPride went back on. It's a much better hitch. Trailer can't sway with a ProPride. Got a very lightly used Reese available, by the way.

Pulling a trailer from Oklahoma to Wyoming and the one thing you’re guaranteed; wind and fast moving semis. When you see enough trailers on the side of the road flipped, knowing you have the additional help off the bat to control your own is peace of mind worth the price. Pulling through 80mph crosswinds or a blizzard, having this piece of equipment is a lifesaver. My only gripe is the install can be challenging and ended up just watching online videos. You’ll end up buying additional trailer mounts for faster hook up if you have more than one trailer.



- RP66084
by:

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.

After a discussion with Anthony I decided to go with the Reese hitch. So glad I did. 17 trips last year and I still think it is the best setup. I was debating the Equalizer. I personally have seen issues. Truck and camper must be level to hook up and I have seen the pins bend. Plus they are noisy. This hitch is easy to use and I have zero sag with my truck.

I had a reese hitch about 30 years ago, the hitch saved me from going into clear creek when my trailer was fishtailing it pulled it back straight behind my tow vehicle. I went to a 5th wheel for several years then wanted to downsize to smaller trailer. Bought a pull behind and wanted a weight dist and sway control for it. Bought the rp66084, you kept me informed about the shipping and when i would get it, came in by ups one box was crushed open but was no missing parts. Have not had it on the road yet but sure everything will be ok.



- RP66084

The hitch was delivered in good condition except for a few paint chips. Considering the weight of the hitch and parts, I expected as such. If you order the sway control arms as I did you must read all the directions before starting. The sway control arms will change where the brackets need to be located on the trailer tongue. All the parts when together great and I can't wait to see how the hitch performs on my 29 foot Salem travel trailer.

Excellent product. It's an easy DYI installation. It only took about an hour to install to spec. Not much to say about the weight distro, other than it's nice to have my truck riding next to normal. I was most impressed with the built-in anti-sway in high winds while crossing a large body of water. Never once did I feel the vehicle was going to go off the bridge, or any whipping of the trailer. The two felt like one unit. Highly recommend this setup

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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Chains and Sway Control for 700-900 Lbs Tongue Weight
    I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66084 which has chain style frame hangers and built-in sway control. It's actually one of the best in this category. That said, if you really liked the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution part # BLU66FR you'd have no issue at all using this. The tongue weight ranges are not that sensitive on the low end.

If you want to reduce sway then you'd be better off using a weight distribution system with sway control integrated. I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # RP66084 along with hitch ball...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 5.5K Trailer with a 2018 Chevy Colorado
    I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2018 Chevy Colorado and it looks like as long as you have the 3.6L V6 (not the ZR2) then you definitely can safely tow up to a 7K trailer. With that being said, there are a few things to note; like how much weight you have in the pickup, if the 5,500 lbs for the trailer is GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) or if that's the dry weight, and that you'll need both a brake controller and a weight distribution system. I'm assuming you already...

  • Roadmaster Active Suspension Enhancement for 2004 GMC Denali with Quadrasteer
    I have an option for you, but the Roadmaster Active Suspension Custom Leaf Spring Enhancement Kit # RAS4611 is not compatible with the Quadrasteer system on your 2004 GMC Sierra Denali. Your best bet and the only confirmed suspension enhancement solution that won't interfere with your Quadrasteer components, is the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System # TGMRCK25S. These hollow rubber springs sit above the rear axle to help stabilize and level your Sierra.

  • Why Cant 2019 Audi Q7 Use Weight Distribution System
    The reason a 2019 Audi Q7 cannot use a weight distribution system is because the hitches that fit, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76076 and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13277 are not rated for use with a weight distribution system; I can only render a guess but it is likely the OEM hitch is also not rated for use with one of these systems. The reason for that is the amount of torque on the hitch and where it is installed on the vehicle puts too much force on for the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch With Sway Control For Towing a 2021 Keystone Springdale 260BH
    I recommend using the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 for towing your 2021 Keystone Springdale 260BH. This hitch is rated for tongue weights of 600-1,200lbs, your Springdale comes from the factory at 510lbs dry. Once propane a battery and your gear are added your tongue weight will likely become 800lbs. The maximum weight capacity of 12,000lbs is well below the the GVWR of 7,788lbs on your Springdale. This weight distribution system features a built in sway control to keep...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Ford Ranger Behind Motorhome
    According to the extensive procedure outlined in the owner's manual, your 2019 Ford Ranger is capable of being flat towed. In order to tow the vehicle behind your motorhome, you'll need base plates like part # RM-524459-5, a tow bar like the Roadmaster Falcon 2 all terrain tow bar, part # RM-522 and safety cables like # RM-643. You'll also need to wire the vehicle so its taillights operate in tandem with those on the motorhome. To do this, I'd recommend a diode system like # RM-152-98146-7. You...

  • Difference Between Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System RP66084 and RP66074
    The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution Systems w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar # RP66084 and # RP66074 referenced in your question are almost identical systems except for a couple of small differences. Both of these systems feature dual-cam sway control with a tongue weight capacity of 600 to 1,200 pounds. The first difference between the two is that the Reese # RP66084 includes an adjustable shank with a maximum rise of 6-1/2 inches and maximum drop of 1-1/4 inches. The Reese # RP66074...

  • Recommended System for Better Sway Control of 30 Foot Travel Trailer
    The Roadmaster Active Suspension Kit # RAS3611-B will help with the vehicle side of things by assisting with the rear suspension which will have some effect on the ride of the trailer. The much bigger issue with sway is that your trailer is very long. Even with a weight distribution system and a friction sway bar, you will have sway issues because for trailers over 26 feet, they recommend 2 friction sway bars. I've attached an article to help. I highly recommend that you look into...

  • How to Install a Weight Distribution System on a V-Nose Trailer
    To use a weight distribution system like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 on a V-nose trailer all you need is a different set of chain hanger brackets. For that you will want the chain hanger bracket # RP58305. These bolt to the sides of the trailer frame and don't require clearance above the frame rail so they are perfect for V-nose trailers. I attached an FAQ on weight distribution systems for you to check out as well.

  • Should Timbren or SumoSpring Suspension Enhancement be Used for Towing with a 2014 Ford F-150
    I personally recommend using the SumoSprings Solo Custom Helper Springs # SSR-117-47 for your 2014 Ford F-150 4x4 because we have received a lot of feedback from customers stating that the SumoSprings provide a much more comfortable ride than the Timbren alternative. These helper springs are rated for up to 1,500 lbs but please note that any suspension enhancement system is only designed to support a suspension that is in good working order and it will not increase your weight carrying...

  • Best Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 2012 Nissan Xterra and 2012 Toyota 4Runner
    The only issue you might run into as far as compatibility between the two vehicles is that the rise/drop needed to tow the trailer level might be different on the Nissan and Toyota. I'm attaching an article on choosing a ball mount for you to check out. It explains how to determine the rise/drop between your hitch and coupler. If you'd like to send me the rise/drop measurements for your two vehicles, I'd be happy to make sure you have all the necessary components. The other thing to consider...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Head for 18 Year-Old Reese Trunnion Spring Bars
    The weight distribution heads and the trunnions on the spring bars have gone through several evolutionary changes over the years, so the # RP58167 almost certainly wouldn't be compatible with spring bars that are 18 years old. However, I can get try to get some confirmation or attempt to find something compatible if you could provide the part numbers from your existing spring bars. If you can't find any numbers on your bars, honestly your best course of action would be to go with a new...

  • Best 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Factory Prep System
    The very best hitch for the Ford Factory Prep Package in my opinion is the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3305. This hitch fits directly into the factory pucks for a very clean and custom fit. The base can be installed independent of the head for an easier transition in and out of your truck and the 1 inch thick dual jaws give you the best king pin contact for less jarring and chucking when towing. The cam action latching handle...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Sway After Installing a Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
    It is interesting that you are experiencing more sway with the 1,200 lb Strait-Line # RP66084. Typically what we see is that weight distribution (WD) systems that are overrated for their towing setup cause the trailer to be more stiff. Nevertheless you do need to swap out the bars for part # RP22225 which would then make your tongue weight range 400 lbs - 800 lbs and would be a better fit for your application. Other things to help combat sway are making sure that your trailer is properly...

  • Can Reese Weight Distribution System be Upgraded to Strait Line by Adding Dual Cam Sway Control
    The Reese Strait Line part # RP66084 is basically just the two part numbers you also mentioned of # RP66542 # RP26002. So if you wanted to try just the # RP66542 for now and then add the # RP26002 later you certainly could.

    The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # RP66084 will require limited tools for installation. You will need 3/4 inch socket, a 1/2 inch socket, and matching open end wrenches. You will also need a torque wrench like # ALL944001. You will also need two drill bits: 7/16 inch and 17/32 inch. The manufacturer also recommends an 8-10 inch c-clamp, tape measure, and penetrating oil.

  • Can Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control be Used on a Husky Weight Distribution System
    To use the Reese Dual-Cam sway control # RP26002 you would have to change the whole weight distribution system including the spring bars, brackets, head, shank, and ball. The dual-cam system is only compatible with certain spring bars (Reese bars with the curved cam ends, see picture). The spring bars only fit a certain head and the head only fits a certain shank. If you are looking for more cost effective sway control then you could use 2 friction sway bars, # 83660, provided the head...
