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 Trunnion-Bar Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, serrated washers on the Reese 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 this 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. 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).

Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution - WD Only - RP66006 Review

Today, we'll be reviewing part number RP66006. This is the Reese Titan Weight Distribution system. It is going to be a Trunnion bar style. These systems are evenly distribute weight over the axles of your towed vehicle and trailer for stability and control. They're designed in creating more level ride for the towed vehicle and the trailer. Now, this one in particular is designed for heavy duty towing with a 2 and a half inch by 2 and a half inch trailer hitch receiver. The Trunnion spring bars are hot rolled and tapered for superior strength and flexibility. The bars will flex appropriately over on even terrain for a nice control, even ride. The current ends right here, are designed for use with a dual cam sway control system. You can purchase that separately using part number RP26002. The adjustable spring bar tension is going to be controlled by the chains right here.

All you have to do is just switch the links in the chains to fine tune, and make adjustments as needed. Desired tilt at the head assembly is also easy to achieve. This system is going to feature 2 serrated washers, one on this side of the gap back here, and I'm going to rotate it so you can see it a little bit better. It's going to feature a serrated washer design. You have one right here, and one right here. This bracket actually has teeth in it, and then the washers have teeth in it. That's just going allow you to get the tilt, or the angle that you need without having to use washers, or spacers.

It used to be where you used to have to pile on washer after washer, but with that serrated washer design, it eliminates that, and you can easily achieve the tilt, and the angle that you need. It's also going to feature the forged raised ball platform on the head, so that's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball. This system is going to include the head assembly, the lift brackets, the Trunnion spring bars, the lift chains, the snap up handle, which is this right here, and all necessary hardware. It's also going to come with a shim. This is provided so you can install it when needed to fill any gap between the weight distribution head, and the hitch bar. So, it slide down right in this portion here, and you can run those big bolts through the slots. The adjustable shank and trailer hitch ball are going to be sold separately. Keep in mind that it will use a hitch bulb with a threaded shank, with an inch and a quarter diameter. This system is going to offer a total weight of 1,000 pounds, to 1,700 pounds, with a gross towing weight of 17,000 pounds. Again, it is designed for 2 and a half inch by 2 and a half inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with weight distribution systems. When positioning the left brackets on the frame of your trailer, you want to position them about 30 inches back from the hitch ball.

You'd want to do that measurement on both sides of the frame of your trailer, and make sure that they're set straight across from each other, and again, 30 inches back from the hitch ball. The left brackets are going to require about 5 and a half inches of space along the trailer frame. They got the set screw, so it basically just sits over the trailer frame, and then you tighten down the big bolt here in the back. That's going to apply pressure to the frame of your trailer, holding the left brackets in place. Keep in mind that it will not fit trailer frames wider than 2 and a half inches. I did mention right here that this is going to be the snap up handle. When you have all the tension on the system, sometimes the chains are really hard to disengage, or to remove, and so the snap up handle is actually designed for when you have the chain installed, and obviously, we would have the pen removed, and the bracket would be at a down position. You get the tension, and to move it up, you would need to get the snap up handle on there, and then raise it up into position, and then you'd re-insert the pin.

It's also going to help when needing to lower the bracket down to actually move the chain. Again, it can be moved without the snap up handle, especially when there's no tension on it, but the snap up handle is going to allow you to gain some leverage, and it's going to make that function a little bit easier. Then, each left bracket is going to have the pin that goes in there to hold it in the up position. Really nice steel construction, very heavy duty. It's got a nice black powder coat finish over everything, so it's going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP66006. This is the Reese Titan Weight Distribution system with a Trunnion bar style. .

Excellent product and excellent service! I pull a Arctic Fox 32A with a 2010 Chev Silverado 2500 HD with a Duramax. The tongue weight is 1430 pounds. I upgraded from a Husky 12,000 pound hitch to the Reese 17000 pound RP66006 weight distribution hitch, and the RP54977 Shank. There has been a remarkable improvement in the ride, much smoother, and no bouncing. And , it is level. I can't say enough about the great service from Katie D at etrailer 466893


Comments

I am extremely happy with the Reese hitch I bought. And, I have to say, the after sales service from etrailer is outstanding. Not many businesses would follow up a year after the sale.

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Motor Home Towing 13,000 lb Trailer
  • If your motorhome does indeed have a hitch with a 10000 lb capacity, it means that the hitch is capable of towing a trailer weighing up to 10000 lbs. To confirm this, the hitch should have a sticker or plate on it listing the capacities. The tongue weight capacity should also be listed. Tongue weight is the amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the receiver (or the maximum downward force exerted). The hitch might also list a capacity for use with a weight distribution (W/D)...

  • Choosing The Right Weight Distribution System
  • A weight distribution system is needed when the trailer being towed weighs more than 50 percent of the towing vehicle's weight or the vehicle sags when the trailer is coupled to the vehicle. There are a few things to consider when choosing a system that will work best for you. First, your trailer hitch will need to be rated to be able to use a weight distribution system. You will need to know 2 things when considering a system. You will need to know your gross trailer weight(GTW). This...

  • When choosing a weight distribution system you will want one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the trailer tongue weight when loaded and ready to tow and that also includes the weight of any gear loaded behind the rear axle of your 2011 GMC 2500 HD. I am including a link to a FAQ page on weight distribution.

  • Weight Distribution for Dump Trailer with 8 Inch Tall I-Beam Frame
  • I do have a great option for you but a Reese system is not going to be the best choice in this case. You will need to box the trailer frame where the weight distribution brackets will go by having steel plates welded on. What you can use is an Equal-I-zer system, # EQ37120ET as an example, and then add 2 outer link plates, # EQ90-02-5378, sold in quantities of 1, and 2 inner link plates, # EQ90-02-5208, also sold in quantities of 1. That would allow you to use the system on an 8 inch...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2016 Jayco Jay Flight 34RSBS Travel Trailer
  • For a dry tongue weight of 1,250 lbs you'd want a higher rated weight distribution system like the Reese Titan part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 lbs to 1,700 lbs. This system is about as easy to install and use as any of them are, but what will really make the install easier is a powered a-frame jack. Reason being when you install a WD system you have to hitch the trailer to the truck's hitch ball and then use the jack to raise the rear suspension of the truck slightly...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing a 32 foot Cavalier Trailer
  • The best way to select a weight distribution system for towing your 32 foot Cavalier travel trailer with your 1998 Dodge Ram 3/4 ton truck is to weigh the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. When weighing the trailer you will need to determine the gross trailer weight and the gross tongue weight, and add the weight of anything you may need to load behind the rear axle in the bed of your Ram to the tongue weight. Armed with this information you can select a weight distribution...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch for a 2007 Ford F-150 and a 7,580 GVWR Trailer
  • You were told correctly, you may not need a sway control system. Sway is dependent on a lot of factors including things like trailer length, load arrangement in trailer and road conditions. In any case, I will recommend a weight distribution system that is set up to easily add a sway control system if you decide you want it or it becomes a necessity. Your trailer has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or GVWR of 7,580 pounds, meaning that the trailer when fully loaded cannot weight more than...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Trailer with 900 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • For your trailer with a total tongue weight of 900 pounds (including the weight of the cargo loaded behind the rear axle of the truck) I recommend a weight distribution system rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight # RP66084. Your tongue weight is right in the middle of the range of this system which is exactly where you would want it to be. It comes with dual-cam sway control which prevents trailer sway from starting.

  • When choosing a weight distribution system, you will need one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the trailer tongue weight when loaded and ready to tow. Anything loaded in the tow vehicle that is behind the rear axle will also count towards tongue weight. Tongue weight is usually between 10 and 15 percent of the gross trailer weight, loaded and ready to tow. With an unloaded weight of 10,200 pounds, that would be between 1,020 pounds and 1,530 pounds.

  • Is Weight Distribution and Sway Control Necessary on 2011 Keystone Towed by 2011 Silverado 2500
  • Any time the trailer weighs more than half the weight of the vehicle, we recommend weight distribution. The OEM sway control is similar to a traction control system. The vehicle can sense trailer sway by the movement of the rear of the vehicle. Power is then sent to one wheel or the other in order to combat trailer sway. I do not have any personal experience to be able to say how well it works, and the comments I have heard about it are not definitive one way or the other. My best...
