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.

Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - RP66075 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RP66075. This is the Reese Weight Distribution. It's going to be a Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control, that's going to be a Trunnion Bar design. This right here are going to be the sway control, the dual-cam sway control system. The entire system is designed to evenly distribute weight over the axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer for stability and control. It's going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. It's going to feature the automatically self-adjusting, self-centering sway control, it's going to work in a variety of situations. When it comes to straight-line movement, the cams are actually going to lock in the position to hold trailer steady despite the crosswinds. When you're cornering, the cams will automatically unlock and slide to allow full-radius turns and then when you have those moments where you can't avoid a sudden swerve, the cams actually seek a straight line angle to help stabilize the trailer. The heavy-duty system is ideal for commercial and industrial use.

It is designed for heavy-duty towing with 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers. The sway control system is going to bolt onto an A-frame trailer tongue and it's going to attach to the lift brackets using the chains. So real quick, you can see how this portion would swing up, it's going to attach to your trailer frame. It's going to have a set screw at the back and then it's going to have two screws right up here on the other side of the bracket, so on the outside portion of the frame of your trailer. All the hardware that you need to get the sway control system installed is included in the bag and so it has everything that you're going to need to get it installed to the trailer. It's also going to feature the lift brackets so one end of the chain is going to be on the lift bracket, the other end is going to be attached to the dual-cam sway control system and again, it's going to be the same on both sides. The sway control again, is going to bolt on to the A-frame trailer tongue. It's going to attach to the lift brackets using the frame.

Great thing about this system is this is not going to use any U-bolts or platforms, so that way you don't have to worry about it interfering with frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, toolboxes or generators. The trunnion bars are a hot rolled designed and are tapered for superior strength and flexibility. So the bars will flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a controlled, even ride and then the sway control cams are going to provide attachment points for the spring bars, so you can see how it sits over the dual-cam sway control system because it has that tapered in. The head assembly is going to feature a forged, raised ball platform that's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball. The adjustable spring-bar tension is very easy to take advantage of. All you have to do is just change out the links in the chain so you can adjust it as needed; that way you can make those tuned adjustments simply by increasing or decreasing the links that you have set right here. I had it set like that and if I need to increase the tension or make some adjustments, I can simply just take the chain and I can switch the link that I have hooked on to the lift bracket. Another great feature about this system is you can easily get the tilt that you need with the serrated-washer design here at the head assembly, so you don't to worry about piling on washer after washer.

It's going to feature two washers right here. They have teeth in them that dig in to the teeth on the head assembly. Its going to allow you to get that angle and tilt that you need very easily. Real quick while we're back here, it's also going to come with a shim; you can use this when you need to fill any gap between the head and the hitch bar. It would slide right in here, you'd run the bolts through the holes and you'd get that to line up right in the .. there's a lot of detailed information on that in the instructions that comes with the weight distribution system. The system is going to include the sway control cams, the head assembly, the lift brackets, the spring bars, the lift chains.

It's also going to feature a snap up handle that way you can get the chains up in the place. It just goes over that portion right there. It's going to allow you to lift it up into place that way you can attach the pins that I already have installed. Then when you need to disengage the chains, you can use that leverage handle to bring the chains back down and easily disconnect them from the life brackets. The adjustable shank and the trailer hitch ball are going to be sold separately. This is going to use a hitch ball with threaded shank and it's going to need to be 1-1/4" in diameter. This is going to offer a towing weight of 1,000 lbs to 1,700 lbs; with a gross towing weight of 17,000 lbs. Again, it is designed to fit a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" trailer hitch receivers thats rated for use with the weight distribution system. When choosing the shank, we offer a couple of great suggestions underneath the related products, on the right-hand side of this product's product page. You can check those out, that way you can get the appropriate shank that you need to get the weight distribution head attached to it if you don't already have one. When positioning the left brackets, you're going to want to position them about 30" back from the hitch ball, so you'll do that measure on each side of your trailer frame. The brackets are going to go over the frame and then you're going to tighten down the set bold back here and get it nice and secure up against the frame of your trailer. Keep in mind that it's going to require approximately 5 1/2" of space along the trailer frame to get the lift bracket positioned and it will not fit trailer frames wider than 2 1/2". Once again, all the hardware that you need to get this installed it's going to come with it so you don't need to purchase anything separately to get it mounted. The only thing it doesnt come with is it does not come with the hitch ball or the adjustable shank. Everything is made from a nice steel construction, very heavy duty. It's going to last a long time. It's got a really nice powder coated finish on so it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion, for riding you many years of use out of the system. That's going to do it for our review of part number RP66075. This is the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with the Sway Control. .

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

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.

The hitch worked wonderful. I was scheduled to have it installed by others but when they saw the unit they got scared, I think. So, having read and re-read the instructions myself by this time, I decided to go it myself. It took all of 4 hours and the following day we left on a five week trip to the northwest US. It performed really well. We had taken two shorter trips without it and I can really feel the difference it makes in windy conditions and weight distribution. 216549

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

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

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 199001

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 577503

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. 569248


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.

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!! 121781

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.

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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.

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

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

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

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

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 . 287015

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! 400506

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. 328580

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. 151055

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

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.

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. 475620

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... 59938

I got this to pull a trailer from Virginia, through Canada, to Alaska. After almost 6000 miles, I highly recommend this, in the appropriate weight rating of course, for anyone pulling a heavy load. My loaded trailer was right at 9000 lbs. I first visited the recommendation page and decided on this particular hitch. The route wasn't easy and mostly mountainous, and the Alaskan Highway is nothing to sneeze at. We hit several unmarked rough patches pretty fast. Never once did I have any issues. The truck rode perfectly level, and the trailer never swayed, not one bit. Set up wasn't the easiest, but just read through the instructions a couple times, then find a video covering it. Once you have it set up, hooking up takes just a minute or two longer than just hooking straight to the ball, but not any more difficult. Highly recommend. 398721

What a piece of engineering! I haven't towed with this yet but the design looks great. I've read other reviews about how long the installation takes, the directions seem simple so I don't anticipate any problems. My unloaded, as shipped TW is 600lbs, adding a battery and full propane tanks plus the hitch weight brings the TW up to 800lbs. I should have plenty of extra capacity with these. 208694

I just pulled 500 miles with zero sway. When being overtaken by a semi, the whole rig wants to move instead of just the camper. I find this normal and acceptable.

This is one of the best hitches I've used. We took a trailer to Burning Man last year, traveling 2100 miles each way from Florida. Up hills, down hills, 6% grades and all. If a truck passing managed a bit of a sway in our 21' trailer, touching the trailer brakes, using the brake controller, set it back in line. Set the trailer level and it works great! 679306

I purchased my second one in 2018 after having this system on my previous trailer. I love the function and how well my travel trailer is balanced with pull and weight distribution. The biggest change is in a tubular installation. The "press in" nuts have no tolerance for drill hole sizing error. I use the drill bit sizes and methods describe by the manufacturer. Yet, the nut would spin free during assembly. I had to use a creative solution just to get my system installed. I gave 4 Stars instead of 5 due to installation is not user friendly for a tube frame trailer. 661155

I think the setup is great. The installation was a little tricky since I’ve never installed anything like it before, but there are plenty of installation videos out there to watch first (and to reference during install). When I’m towing I sometimes forget my 30’ camper is back there. As far as sway, I have get to be effected by any. I would recommend this hitch and I would buy it again if needed. 644262

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 24-Foot Enclosed Trailer with Limited Frame Clearance

  • Best Weight Distribution for 2013 Ram 1500 and Coleman E3 Popup Trailer with Varying Tongue Weight

This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Since the tongue weight is going to vary even a rough estimate of the range will help to determine the best option.

  • 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...

  • Verifying your trailer's loaded tongue weight is a great idea, but you will not be able to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS4-25 with a weight distribution system. Weight distribution systems will require a specialized shank and will not attach directly to a ball mount like the Weigh Safe product. To check the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, I recommend using a scale like the Sherline # 5780. The most important factor when choosing a weight distribution system is the total...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 1,175 lb Dry Tongue Weight Trailer
  • With your tongue weight at 1,175 lbs when loaded, you also need to account for any cargo weight behind the rear axle as well to get the total tongue weight rating. I've attached an article to assist. You are correct that your current system is underrated for your application. My recommendation is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37140ET rated for total tongue weights between 1,000 and 1,400 lbs. You want your total tongue weight to fall in the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For Trailer With 1,100-lb Tongue Weight

The best way to find the right system is to get the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully-loaded and ready to tow. Then add the weight of the cargo placed behind the rear axle of your Ram.
