Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Because it doesn't just rely on tension to control sway, you won't get a really rigid ride
  • Tends to track better during turns and swerves than 4-point systems
  • If you need a bigger drop or rise, you won't be wasting money by getting a standard shank that you won't end up using. But...

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Premium features carry a premium price tag
  • Bars popping in and out of cams can create a lot of noise, especially when turning
  • You do have to buy the shank separately, so there is that extra step.
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. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution from Reese. Strait-Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - No Shank - Trunnion Bar - 17K GTW, 1,700 lbs TW part number RP66075 can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 800-298-8924 for expert service.

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

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 24-Foot Enclosed Trailer with Limited Frame Clearance
  • You could use a friction sway control device like # 83660 to help control the sway effects caused by passing trucks, but with a 24-foot enclosed trailer that has a lot of surface area for wind to push on, you will get much better results with a weight distribution system that has built-in sway prevention. These perform much better, and they also allow you back up the trailer without having to disconnect the sway arm. All friction arm units must be disengaged before you try to back up the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Toy Hauler Tongue Weight 1,400-1,500 lbs
  • The Strait Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66075 will be the better choice for your tongue weight range of 1,400 to 1,500 lbs. This system has the best sway control design on the market which fights to prevent sway before it starts. It does require some frame drilling though which I can understand is something you'd rather not do, but once it's done you'd be good to go. The holes do not affect the integrity of the frame either as the bolts being tightened where the holes are drilled...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 2018 Grand Design Reflection 315 RLTS Travel Trailer
  • Sometimes just use of new spring bars can update a weight distribution hitch to match the tongue weight (TW) of a new trailer, but in the case of your Equal-I-zer system, part # EQ37140ET, the highest-rated bars are the 1400-lb set # EQ90-01-1499 that you now have. I noticed the various trailer specs you provided seemed not to match up; the dry tongue weight of 1400-lbs that you quoted seemed high for a trailer with a GVWR of 10995-lbs.

If 15,000 lbs is the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of your trailer or that is the most it will weigh when you are towing it then you can potentially use the Strait-Line # RP66075 instead. This is rated to tow up to a 17,000 lb trailer and it has a tongue weight...

This particular system is meant to be used in a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch by 2-1/2 inch receiver. This is the highest rated system Equal-i-zer offers.

Since your trailer has a loaded tongue weight of 1,365 lbs the Strait Line system part # RP66075 that you referenced would be exactly what you'd want as it has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lbs.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with 1,300-1,500 lb Tongue Weight
  • Equal-I-Zer is the clear winner. Many refer to the Equal-I-Zer brand as the nicest around whereas the feedback for Blue Ox weight distribution systems isn't as consistently positive. The highest rated system from them though is the part # EQ37141ET which is rated for up to 1,400 lbs of tongue weight. So if you are going to be over that you'd instead want to look at the Reese Strailtline kit part # RP66075 with the shank part # C17131 since your 2018 Ram would have a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch....

  • Weight Distribution System Needed for a Haulmark Car Trailer Towed by a Chevrolet Suburban
  • The difference between the Reese Weight Distribution Systems, # RP66074 and # RP66084, is that the RP66084 system includes the adjustable shank and the # RP66074 system does not. If you choose to go with RP66074, then you will also want to get the Reese Weight Distribution Shank, # RP54970, and both systems will require a hitch ball, # 19286.

  • 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...

  • The most important thing to consider in choosing a weight distribution system is your total tongue weight.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 1,600 lb Tongue Weight Setup
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well.
