Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and your camper or 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.

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.


My last strait-line weight distribution kit w/sway was sold with my travel trailer. These with dynamic sway control have made such a difference in many tricky situations, times when I was traveling in ice in a snow storm, or rain storms, I have always felt in good control with this system. Buying the same system again was a no-brainer. E trailer has helped out a lot with the best tech support and has answered so many questions for me. Great group over there.


This hitch was well worth the investment. This hitch massively reduced the sway I was experiencing with my 32” Toy Hauler.


I bought two 66130 weight dist. and sway sytems one was put on 3/4 diesel and the other on 3/4 gas bought worked great had no problems with installation,only thing I needed was the shim #58207
for the head assy. and shank if you have a gap. Called Sequent
products which is part of reese and drawtite,sent me the shim and
all was great


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.


The entire package is awesome , did as promised and fixed sway of trailer. I am pulling a 33' Weekend Warrior Toy Hauler. The trailer is heavy 11.500 lbs. and has a heavy tongue weight as well.
Air bags on a 3/4 ton Denali diesel and this trailer pulls straight and true. Should I purchase another tag along this will be the hitch I go with again. Researched Hensley and a few other anti-sway hitches in detail and this is what has worked.
A lot to set up for every trip but does as promised and creates a level of safety comfort for me the driver.


Works great as long as it is set up correctly. We traded our trailer in on a new one and the dealer did not set it up correctly and the weight distribution bars kept coming off the cams. The noise and shake made me think I hit something. once adjusted all is good. Still a popping noise I need to track down but not creating any issues. I bought this particular one because of the wider tongue weight range it supported which came in handy. Our new trailer has a dry tongue weight of 944 lbs and the previous trailer was 560.


Purchased this hitch to replace my 14k equalizer hoping it would be a little quieter wich it is from the few blocks I have towed with it. Two complaints I have are one it comes with two sets of instructions if you get the dual cam version you want to make sure you start with those instructions and two the hook up brackets that mount to the trailer have verry poor rivets that the bracket hinges on , one was so bad that in the up position I couldn’t get the keeper pin through and had to replace it, I did get a replacement from etrailer and it is way better , pretty sure I will have to replace the other bracket as well as there is a ton of play in its rivots as well but for now I can at least get the keeper pin in


We recently purchased a larger travel trailer and decided to upgrade our weight distribution system. After reading Etrailer reviews and going with the suggested setup we bought the Reese Strait-Line system RP6613. Setup was time consuming and very finicky. Unfortunately getting the system setup so the cams ride in the bars properly was extremely difficult and frustrating. The weight distribution part worked great as advertised. The sway control on the other hand seems nonexistent. Equalizer WDS setup, adjustment and performance are far above the Reese systems.


I recently purchased the straight line dual cam hitch with sway control. I've dealt with etrailer in the past and have always been very satisfied with not only the product but also the company. When I called etrailer I had some concerns as to whether I was looking at buying the correct hitch (12000 lb.) or needed the 15000 lb. I spoke with Nik and voiced my concerns. He was knowledgeable and we agreed that the 15000 lb. would be a better fit for my application. Within a few days UPS delivered the hitch. Really quick service. Now, I hate calling a company to order anything. It always seems you get the hard sell to by other items and it is very irritating. Not so with etrailer. We had a pleasant conversation with no hard sell. Just what I was looking for and that was it. I haven't had the opportunity to install the hitch yet but I'm sure if I need any help it's just a phone call away. Thanks Nik and etrailer.


etrailer provides excellent service and fast shipping. I ordered the Reese strait line for my new 34 foot toy hauler. The instructions provided by Reese are not the best; however, etrailer has videos and made things much easier. Once installed I went for a test drive. The sway I was getting from the friction bar set up was gone. I Could cruise at freeway speeds one handed and not fight the trailer. I definitely recommend this product, and purchase it from etrailer if you want great service.


The weight distribution hitch and dual cam sway control were installed on a 2005 F250 pulling a 2003 Jayco "toy hauler".
The instructions were very easy to read and understand making assembly and adjustments easy.
The only complaint I have...A $500 hitch shouldn't have chips of paint missing and all "scuffed" up when it arrives!


So impressed with how easy it was to find and order what I needed. Time on it coming was amazing. At first I thought it would be weeks before receiving my items. Nope, I was wrong. I recommend to anybody looking for any kind of item when it comes to braking systems and distrabution hitches. I will use them for all my needs and what they provide.

Thank you !!!!!


Product arrived quickly and as always etrailer was a big help. I watched one of the installation videos for the product I ordered. The video was much easier to understand and way more helpful than the written instructions. Thanks again for the professional and knowledgable service.


Preston and Ian were outstanding to work with and get the proper fit for my truck and trailer. Very detail oriented and everything they told me was spot on. Thanks guys!



Very happy with the towing system and have put over 20k miles with them.


The system worked great on our 1600 mile trip. I had no issues with it. I pull a 38 ft. travel trailer with a 2014 Ford F-250. I especially enjoyed the increased control when tractor trailers would pass. I would definitely recommend this system to other RV'ers. Well worth the price.


This is one stout WD hitch system! Pretty straight forward installation instructions which is aided by watching a video on it. Looking forward to using it soon.
E-Trailer service is not to be compared to any is outstanding!


Does what It suppose to . That said there are some weak spots. Rivets instead of bolts on chain clamp (drill out & replace w/ bolt ). Metal quality weak on chain plate & tension bar rest .


It is what I needed for my new hitch. I will be be installing it today on my hitch head. Waiting for my new trailer. Should be here soon.


If etrailer sells it - that's where I shop.
knowledgeable, professional, accurate delivery schedule!!
Steve helped me get my hitch a day early,
He deserves a paid day off lol!!

I love the people here - they have earned my trust - in this day & age most businesses just talk customer service
etrailer delivers!!

2 cross country trips using the hitch on 2 different trailers. Hitch worked perfect on all trips, no worries about trailer fishtailing. This is the only weight distribution hitch I will use.


This made a big difference in towing my 13000lb Trailer


I have a 12000 lb on my camp trailer, but needed a 15000 for my equipment trailer.


Hitch arrived in two boxes which were in good shape considering the weight. On opening all parts were received. Not having time to install yet, but having tested the placement of hitch, the most time needed will be checking measurement and drilling the frame of the trailer after that its straight forward bolting together. This could be a hard project if it was my first time, but can be done easily if you have the right tools The Reesee strait line hitch looks like a well design hitch witch should handle the weight and sway. Will write again when installed and towing.


In the process of installing the quantity of the castings leaves a lot to be desired usually China does a better job. Sand casting is very rough instructions seem to be good, no problem so far. I have been towing trailers 40 years


All very helpful and polite.thanks for all the unit was very easy to install.will use this company again.thanks


work great for pulling my 16' X 10' inclosed trail

  • Preliminary Ball Mount Setup Instructions for a Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
    No you would not need to add 2 inches to the Y dimension for the initial setup of the Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66130. Because the snap up brackets actually go on top of the frame and the measurement for the B couplers is relative to the coupler and not the trailer frame height. Check out the picture I attached of the two different style spring bars.

  • Do You Have to Drill Into Trailer Frame to Install Snap-Up Brackets on Reese Strait-Line WDH
    There are two methods for attaching the frame brackets that come with the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66130. The first method is the easiest and most common, this simply involves using the set screw to secure the frame brackets to the frame. The other method is optional but offers more support, it entails drilling a hole into the frame and securing the brackets with self-threading bolts.

  • Which Weight Distribution System Should I use for a 2009 Ford E350 with a 1,100 Pound Tongue Weight
    I am glad to hear you have found our site useful. With a weight distribution system, you ideally want your loaded tongue weight to be in the middle of the tongue weight range of the spring bars. This helps to keep your ride from being too stiff with over rated bars, and it keeps the weight distribution system working by not pushing the limits. With an 1,100 pound tongue weight, I would choose a kit with 1,500 pound spring bars like part # 66130. You will not be pushing the maximum tongue...

  • Troubleshooting a Toy Hauler that Sways With New Tires on Tow Vehicle
    New truck tires can feel strange at first when towing. The tread on the new tires is pretty tall and when you are towing the tread will actually fold over from the weight which will give the rear of the vehicle kind of an odd sway that wasn't there before. I experienced this first hand with a buddy of mine's truck that he put new tires on and was towing his boat. The best way to fight sway is proper trailer loading and making sure the trailer is sitting perfectly level. Sway control systems...

  • What Weight Distribution System is Right for 1,250 lbs Tongue Weight?
    If your total tongue weight - the weight of the cargo behind your rear axle plus the tongue weight of your fully loaded trailer - is 1,250 lbs, you would need a system that has a tongue weight capacity which 1,250 lbs falls in the middle of to give you the best performance and ride. For example, the system I recommend, the Reese Strait-Line # RP66130 has a tongue weight capacity between 900 lbs and 1,500 lbs with a gross towing weight of 15,000 lbs. It features automatically self-adjusting...

  • Effects Of Tilting Trailer Ball Mount On Weight Distribution System
    When you tilt the ball of a weight distribution system rearward on your hitch (toward the trailer) you are changing the physics of the system and therefore also the tension on the rear of the trunnion spring bars. Tilting the head rearward will take more of the weight off the rear axle of the towing vehicle by shifting it to the front axle. I have attached a video that shows a weight distribution system being installed and how the measurements should be taken to determine correct adjustment. A...

  • Will Weight Distribution System Distribute Weight On All Axels Evenly
    The weight distribution system will not cause the weight to be equal on all axles. The weight distribution system distributes the trailer's tongue weight, not overall weight. So your trailer could still weight 13,500 pounds at the axle, but a bit more weight is distributed to the front axle of the tow vehicle and the trailer axles with a weight distribution system than without it.
