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.


Block-Style Washer

Unique Features of Reese Round-Bar Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, block-style washer on the Reese system makes adjusting the tilt of the weight-distribution head a snap. This uniquely shaped washer can be rotated and positioned between blocks on the weight-distribution head for simple, secure positioning. And the numbered sides provide reference points should you need to adjust your system between different tow vehicles. 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 to obtain the desired tilt.



The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight-distribution head and secure with pins 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. In addition, 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 (sold separately).

This equalizer is amazing!!! Made of very heavy steel it weighs about 150 pounds. I can't believe how heavy it is, no one builds with that much steel any more. I'm towing a 5,000 lb camp trailer with a 2020 Silverado 1500. Before this the rear end sagged about 4 inches and the truck handled poorly. With this hitch it is a straight line from front bumper of truck to rear bumper of trailer. The truck feels very solid and handles like a dream. Relatively easy to assemble and adjust using included instructions. Highly recommend this product! 777245

Ask the Experts about this Reese Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Weight Distribution System for Low Trailer Hitch Pulling 3,000 lb Trailer
    We do have a weight distribution system that will work but the Reese Weight Distribution System # RP67509 you referenced is a round bar system and those hang lower than trunnion bar systems so I do not recommend going this route. Instead, the best option is the trunnion bar Reese Weight Distribution System # RP66540. Trunnion bars extend out directly from the head unit of the weight distribution system while round bars extend below the head unit roughly 2-1/2 inches which is not ideal...

It is rated appropriately for the weight of the trailer which will ensure you get the best performance and it comes with everything that you need for the exception of a hitch ball, the 2" Hitch Ball part # A-90.

  • Can You Reverse With the Reese Weight Distribution System Part RP67509
    Yes, you can reverse the trailer while using a Reese Weight Distribution System like part # RP67509. The only time there would be an issue is if you were reversing at a really sharp angle, almost jackknifing the trailer but there isn't a weight distribution system available that would allow you to do this due to how the spring bars mount. The only time you really start to limit the reverse angle drastically is when the system comes with friction style sway control bars.

  • Reese Weight Distribution System Spring Bars Won't Slide Into Mounting Holes on Head
    The spring bars for the Reese Weight Distribution System # RP67509 feature a small notch that needs to be lined up with the matching notch on the weight distribution head platform. If this isn't lined up properly the bar won't fit through the mounting hole. I have attached a full install video below but if you skip ahead to the 6:00 mark you can see this pretty clearly. If this doesn't resolve the issue please let me know and I will be happy to look into this further.

  • Can I Use My Weight Distribution System Tongue Weight 800 lbs with a Trailer Tongue Weight 400 lbs
    When choosing a weight distribution system, it is key to know your trailer's loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. You'll then add the tongue weight from the trailer to the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle in the bed of your 2013 Ford F-150. You'll use this combined figure to choose the correct system. I have attached a help article detailing how to determine trailer tongue weight and a help article answering common weight distribution questions, in which you may find helpful....

  • Weight Distribution for a 4000 Pound Trailer with 400 Pound Tongue Weight
    If the rear end of your vehicle sags significantly when the trailer is hooked up then you could have an unsafe condition and your front end and tires will not wear properly. The weight is taken off of the front wheels of the vehicle and can cause loss of control, especially when towing in adverse conditions such as rain, snow, high winds or if a sudden maneuver has to be made. A weight distribution system will level out the vehicle and distribute the tongue weight between the vehicles...

  • Drop Shank Recommendation for the Reese Weight Distribution System part # RP67509
    Since you need a weight distribution shank that will give you more drop than what came with your Reese Weight Distribution System part # RP67509 I would recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP63971. This shank can do up to 6-1/2 inches of drop and should work very well for you. I attached a review video for you to check out for this shank.

  • Does Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution and Sway Control use Dual-Cam Sway Control or Friction
    The Strait-Line weight distribution system is the name given to Reese weight distribution systems that use dual-cam sway control. Strait-Line gets its name from the fact that the dual-cam sway control it uses stops trailer sway before it starts, keeping the trailer and tow vehicle together in a straight line. Dual-cam systems, like that found on Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control, # RP66074, are preferred over friction sway control because dual-cam systems are proactive;...

  • Which Weight Distribution System for a 2002 GMC Sierra and 21 Foot 6,000 Gross Trailer Weight
    Typically, we figure tongue weight as 10 to 15 percent of the weight of the trailer and its cargo. That would put your tongue weight somewhere between 600-900 lbs. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area of the SUV or truck bed behind the rear axle. I've linked to an FAQ article that explains how to do this. These combined...

  • Can Shank in Reese Weight Distribution System RP67509 be Used in the Rise Position
    The shank included with Reese Weight Distribution System # RP67509 can be used in either the rise or drop position. Either way the trailer should be level when it is towed. If the trailer is towed nose high the tongue weight will be too low and the weight distribution system will be ineffective. You will also need a compatible ball with this system. For a 2 inch use # A-90. For a 2-5/16 inch use # 19286.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control for 7500 lb GVWR Travel Trailer
    If you have the travel trailer loaded to the maximum, your likely as-towed tongue weight will be between 500 and 1100 lbs. That's a pretty big swing, so determining the tongue weight of your travel trailer as you'd have it fully loaded and ready to tow is a recommended starting point. Once you determine that, add the weight of anything you carry in the truck bed behind the rear axle. This is the weight you'll use to find which system will work best for your needs.

  • Weight Distribution For Towing 2005 Fleetwood Sequoia
    Since going with too high rated of a weight distribution system can cause the ride quality to be harsh your best option is a properly rated system with a wider range like the Reese part # RP67509 which has a range of 400 to 800 lbs which would work great for the trailer you have now and anything closer to the higher end of your tongue weight range. For a 2 inch ball you'd then need the part # A-90.

    When choosing weight distribution you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by first determining the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow. Then to that you would add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So for example lets say that your gross trailer weight is 6,500 pounds and nothing is loaded behind the rear axle of the truck. The...
