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 RP66084 Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing part number RP66084. This is the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with a sway control unit. It's a trunnion bar design. It's going to include the shank, as well the hitch pin and clips to secure it inside of your hitch. This is made from Reese. It's going to be designed to evenly distribute weight over the axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer for stability and control, which is going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer.

It's going to feature the automatically self-adjusting and self-centering sway control that's going to work in a variety of situations. So for strait-line movement, the cams are actually going to lock into place and hold the trailer steady despite crosswinds. When you go around 00:00:43 corners, the cams will automatically unlock and slide to allow for full-radius turns. When you're in kind of situations where you can't help but have sudden swerving, the cams are going to seek a straight-line angle to help stabilize your trailer. The sway control system is going to be this portion here. It's just going to simply bolt on to the A-frame trailer tongue.

It's going to attach to the lift brackets using the chains so you can see how this one is set up. For the sway control, you're going to get . The bracket here, this is going to mount to the trailer frame. All the hardware that you need is included, so you don't have to worry about purchasing anything separately when it comes to the hardware. They're going to come with these brackets as well, which your U-bolts go through to hold the chain.

The chain is going to connect to the lift bracket. You don't have to worry about any like large U-bolts or platforms that are going to interfere with frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, toolboxes or generators. The trunnion bars are hot rolled, and they have a tapered design for superior strength and flexibility. The bars will flex appropriately for uneven terrain and provide a nice control and even ride. The sway-control cams are going to provide the attachment points. For the end of the spring bars has a curve portion there, it just fits right over the sway control system. The head assembly and the adjustable shank are included.

Here on the head assembly, it's going to feature a forged, raised ball platform that's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball. The tension for the spring bars can be adjusted. All you got to do is switch the links in the lift chains to fine tune. That's going to be dependent upon your particular towing application. Well, let's take a closer look at the head assembly. I'm going to flip this around. I want to show real quick just the washer design. The washers have a serrated edge on them. Each washer does. The head assembly has a serrated design. What that allows is for you to achieve the desired tilt. That serrated-washer design is going to allow the head to tilt as needed, so it's going to eliminate the need to having to pile on washer after washer to get the tilt that you need. It's a really great system to have in place. Once you have the desired tilt, all you got to do is tighten up the hardware, and the washers are actually going to interlock with the grooves on the head assembly. It's going to provide a nice tight fit. It's going to hold it in place. That way, you can get the tilt and the angle that you need for your particular application. This system is going to include the sway control cams, the head assembly, the adjustable shank. You're going to get the lift brackets, spring bars, the lift chains, all the pins and clips that you need. You're going to get the necessary hardware for both the weight distribution system and the sway control system. You're also going to get a shim, which is this portion here. You're going to get a reducer sleeve. You're going to get the snap-up handle. The snap-up handle, it's for the lift bracket. When you're connecting the chains, the lift brackets are going to be in a down position. It's going to allow you to get the chain on there. Because of the tension that comes from connecting the chains, sometimes it's really hard to get that bracket back up into place just by hand, so they actually include a snap-up handle. This is going to allow you to gain some leverage. You're going to go over that portion there. You're going to bring the bracket up into position. Then, you can just secure it in place using the included pins that go through. It's going to keep everything tight and secure. The hitch ball is really the only thing on the system that's going to be sold separately. It does require an 1 1/4-inch shank diameter. You can use a hitch ball with a 1-inch shank diameter, but then you will have to use the reducer sleeve, so keep that in mind. That fits right in there. It reduces that hole from 1 1/14 inches down to a 1-inch diameter. It's going to offer a tongue weight of 600 to 1,200 lbs with a gross towing weight of 12,000 lbs. The shank is designed to fit a 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver that's rated for use with a weight-distribution system. When it comes to positioning the lift brackets, you want to position this about 30 inches back from the hitch ball. You do that measurement on each side of your trailer frame, and then it has a set ball 00:05:01 in the back. You can just tighten that down. It's going to apply pressure to the inside portion of the frame, holding the brackets in place. Each bracket is going to take up approximately 5 1/2 inches of space along the trailer frame. Please keep in mind that it will not fit trailer frames wider than 2 1/2 inches. Now, when it comes to the shank, the shank length that we have from the center of the hitch pin holes to the center of where the hitch ball mounts, that's going to give some measurement of 14 inches. The shank is a 6-hole design. Those holes are going to be separated, center on center, by an 1 1/4 inches. It's going to offer a maximum rise of 6 1/2 inches with a maximum drop of 1 1/4 inches. Everything is coated in a really nice black powder coat finish. It's an all-steel construction. It's going to really stand up well to the elements and rust and corrosion. It's going to provide many years of use. The shim is designed to go in between the shank and the inside face of the bracket here on the head weight or on the head of the weight distribution system. That's designed to go in there. Take out any slack or gap that you may have. It's got the 2 large holes, that way you can run the balls through there to hold it in place. If you need multiple of this, you can refer to your instructions and it's got some contact info in there or we can reach out to you and get one for each 00:06:20 side if you need to. Now, when it comes to selecting a weight distribution system, it's really important that you select one with a proper weight rating. To determine that, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight, and then you want to add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Combine those 2 measurements, and that's going to make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system. That's going to do it for our review of part number RP66084. This is the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with a Sway Control. .

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

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

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 purchased my hitch just before making a trip from the Seattle area to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (about 750 miles each way). I pull a Timber Ridge 250RDS travel trailer (31', 6200 lbs dry weight) with a RAM 2500, and could not be happier with this hitch. It is spendy, but you definitely get what you pay for. 1) It does an excellent job of preventing sway and provides a solid feel, making mefeel comfortable towing at speeds over 70 MPH. 2) I have noticed very little noise coming from the hitch compared to others that pop, creak, and groan. 3) It is very easy to hook up and disconnect, compared to others that involve kicking, prying and loud noises when installing or removing the WD bars. I called etrailer and placed my order over the phone with Karen, and she made sure the order was shipped that day. Excellent service! The only disappointment was that the product had previously been opened, and some mounting hardware was missing. So, when I went to have it installed, the technician had to improvise. Not a big deal, but I wish that had been checked to make sure all of the pieces were there, since it had been previously opened. 200973

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


Comments

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.

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.

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

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

work great.It help with the big riggs not to pull are push when passing. I did not take bars off when turning are backing had no problem with bind are amount of area to turn did not know it was back there when backing. Its not really hard to put together does take a little time to do it right by the instruction. read all the way through Key points height of trailer hitch and what ball height your using. And last make sure you measure the front fender for the ride height. I am really happy with it. We have a lot of down bust wind were we live and strait line distribution system w say bar works really good. our trailer is 36 feet and 8 inch long from ball to bumper. 1000 lbs tung weight. 230436

I will say that e-trailer has been great to buy from and have been very helpful and I will continue to buy my towing needs from them. I have used Reese products for years, so I recently bought a new travel trailer and decided I need a new WD hitch naturally I bought reese. wish I didn't poor fit and finish lots of burrs weldments and forgings not up to what I expected from what was once a top notch manufacturer. Mating parts not aligned welds are crooked, really started looking at the unit and noticed (made in China) had to use machine shims to take up space between poorley fitted parts. If I didn't nned the hitch in a hurry I would have sent it back. 160097

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

Overall product is excellent. Having said that it is not a set-up for a novice to install. Comes as two separate items. READ both instructions sheets and see how they become compatible when finished together. Chain connections are told to locate in two different applications, be careful. When you buy the leveler and sway package it should have it's own instruction sheet. Have taken a 700 mile road trip and worked great. Arm came off once in a dip with tight turn, but hooked back up very easily. Worth the extra money because of the ease of use once it is installed. 193798

E trailer was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I knew pretty much what I wanted when I called to order. Andrea was very helpful in confirming I had the right weight hitch and ball to accommodate my trailer. I ordered late in the day on Monday and everything arrived at my door by 9 am on Wednesday. I could not believe the prompt shipment. And with the tracking feature on the shipping, I knew the status of the shipment all along the way from Missouri to Michigan. With the great price and customer service I have to give E trailer a 5 star rating. 229953

I had a reese hitch about 30 years ago, the hitch saved me from going into clear creek when my trailer was fishtailing it pulled it back straight behind my tow vehicle. I went to a 5th wheel for several years then wanted to downsize to smaller trailer. Bought a pull behind and wanted a weight dist and sway control for it. Bought the rp66084, you kept me informed about the shipping and when i would get it, came in by ups one box was crushed open but was no missing parts. Have not had it on the road yet but sure everything will be ok. 420292

Excellent product. It's an easy DYI installation. It only took about an hour to install to spec. Not much to say about the weight distro, other than it's nice to have my truck riding next to normal. I was most impressed with the built-in anti-sway in high winds while crossing a large body of water. Never once did I feel the vehicle was going to go off the bridge, or any whipping of the trailer. The two felt like one unit. Highly recommend this setup 381439

The hitch was delivered in good condition except for a few paint chips. Considering the weight of the hitch and parts, I expected as such. If you order the sway control arms as I did you must read all the directions before starting. The sway control arms will change where the brackets need to be located on the trailer tongue. All the parts when together great and I can't wait to see how the hitch performs on my 29 foot Salem travel trailer. 253849

As expected, the product is everything that I expected it to be. After one short trip, but with some strong crosswinds, I can honestly say that the "dual cam system" eliminated sway. I could not be happier. Installation took about 3 hours with very minor problems. Only real challenge was finding an 11/16" drill bit for mounting the cam brackets. The two questions that I had were quickly and effectively answered by technical services. 214784

I am very happy with my Reese hitch. It was a good value, and the difference in handling between this hitch and my previous one is unbelievable. The overall control and anti-sway capability is an amazing improvement. I would never have believed that a different hitch could make so much difference. Great product at a fair price, and eTrailer is an outstanding place to purchase. Their service, support, and expertise is second-to-none! 374297

I have had the use of this Item for about a year and i give 5 stars . I have pucharsed several item from this company it the past and as usual etrailer is spot on. Installed this hitch in no time. instructions are concise a clear and went on a test drive with truck and trailer. 65 MPH their is very little sway. Just a small amount when an 18 wheeler goes by but that is no problem. Buy it. You will sure like 358134

So far so good. I received the product yesterday, and have it looked over. I have read some reviews about some of the paint being chipped, this is true. etrailer, is a great company to work with. I received exactly what I ordered, and it is quality at a good price. etrailer also over communicates (this is awesome). I will, and already have ordered more items from them. 492043

Never having used sway control before, but having trailered hundreds of thousands of miles, I was not at all sure how it would be. With this setup on our 33', 7500# camper, I can run any speed I need to, and the trailer stays put. Any wind conditions too. Great product. Well engineered and well built. I really like it and am super happy with it's performance. 343160

After a discussion with Anthony I decided to go with the Reese hitch. So glad I did. 17 trips last year and I still think it is the best setup. I was debating the Equalizer. I personally have seen issues. Truck and camper must be level to hook up and I have seen the pins bend. Plus they are noisy. This hitch is easy to use and I have zero sag with my truck. 472548

This is a comment on the excellent service from etrailer. I had to return the Reese Strait-Line WD with Sway Control hitch without attempting to install it. Etrailer made the return easy with no hesitation to accept the item back for full refund. It was a pleasure to deal with them. I would most certainly use their company again in the future. 160472

Good hitch. Worked well. Only issue was with install. The lock washers for the bolts to attach the sway control were either not quality or flat washers should have been provided to place behind the locking washer. I started torquing down the bolt and the washer just bent open with the bolt, coming out from under the bolt. 406214

This hitch is excellent. Used it to pull my enclosed car trailer with a 2014 GMC Sierra Denali, trailer loaded at 7000 and absolutely no sway and it tracked perfectly. Also fairly easy to install, but did take time. Instructions were not 100% clear, so needed to talk with tech support for clarification. 153665

I haven't installed the hitch yet but as far as service, Etrailer is outstanding. The hitch arrived in one day. I was very impressed with customer service when I ordered the hitch.

Great product and well worth the money! Within 20-minutes of hooking up to my brand new 31 foot travel trailer I was in 40-mph crosswinds with gust over 50. I'm confident that I would of been filing an insurance claim if I hadn't purchased such a great product. Saved my bacon! 383440

Just an excellent product. You need your thinking cap on when you install it the first time, and it takes about 2-3 hours and minimal to medium mechanical skills. It makes pulling my 14', 5500 lb trailer with a half ton Chevy truck a breeze. I can't feel its even behind me. 281470

  • Towing Capacity of 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Recommended Weight Distribution System
  • According to the online owner's manual for the 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, there were three different V8 engines offered, 4.8L, 5.3L and 6.2L. These different powertrains, truck bed lengths, the presence of the heavy-duty cooling package and rear axle gear ratio all affect towing capacity. Maximum trailer weight ranges from 4700-lbs for the 4.8L with 3.23 axle up to 10,600-lbs for the 6.2L V8 NHT with trailering package and 3.73 axle. You will want to confirm in your owner's manual...

  • Comparing the Equal-i-zer Hitch Vs The Reese Wieght Distribution Hitch With Dual Cam Sway Control
  • The Equal-I-zer, # EQ37100ET, and Reese Strait-Line, # RP66084, weight distribution systems are both top notch systems that will get the job done for you, but I usually tend to lean towards the Equal-I-zer systems for a few reasons. First, Equal-I-zer does not require any drilling to install on most trailers. It offers the maximum amount of ground clearance because the frame brackets mount around the frame rather than below the frame like the Dual Cam sway control of the Strait-Line...

  • Comparing Reese Dual Cam and Reese SC Weight Distribution on Ford F150 Towing 30 Foot Travel Trailer
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, it is best to begin the process knowing the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. The procedure for determining this is shown in the FAQ article I have linked you to. Since you are not able to confirm your tongue weight, please understand that anything I recommend will merely be an educated guess. I would recommend going with a 1,200 lb max capacity system to provide some cushion, since actual ready-to-roll tongue weight is not known....

  • Can a Jeep Commander Tow a 5500 lb Travel Trailer
  • If the weight of the fully loaded trailer (including water and propane tanks) is below the manufacturers tow rating of the vehicle, the Commander will tow the trailer with no problems. If your Commander is not already equipped with a transmission cooler, I would recommend one. If you could respond with the model year of your Commander, I would be happy to recommend a specific cooler. Since the trailer weighs more than half the weight of the Commander, a Weight Distribution System is...

  • Weight Distribution for Jayco Trailer Over 9,000 Pounds and 2015 Ford F-150
  • Based on the empty tongue weight of 660 pounds the maximum tongue weight is estimated at 930 pounds on your Jayco trailer. The Reese Strait-Line system # RP66084 is rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight so it is a good fit for your trailer. You mentioned carrying wood in the truck bed so if any of that weight is behind the rear axle then it gets calculated into the tongue weight of the trailer. If that pushes the tongue weight over 1,200 pounds then you would need to go with the...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Rockwood Mini Lite 23.7 Trailer
  • Your best option is going to be the Reese Strait Line part # RP66084 as it has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs which would be perfect for your tongue weight of 725 lbs. The sway control on this system is the only style on the market that actively works to prevent sway before it starts. The other very popular option is the Equalizer WD system part # EQ37101ET which would also work great with 725 lbs of tongue weight but instead uses 4 point of friction for sway control.

  • Weight Distribution for 2007 Chevy Tahoe LTZ Towing 2012 Titan Primo 2-horse Trailer
  • If your old system was not properly adjusted or was overloaded, it would explain why not enough weight was transferred to the front vehicle axle. Generally speaking, tilting the weight distribution head back toward the trailer will distribute more weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle, as will using fewer links in a chain-hanger type system. Your old system might indeed still be usable, if its capabilities are compatible with the weight of your trailer. Consult the set-up instructions...

  • Does a Weight Distribution System Affect Tongue Weight

Without knowing what results you got or how you attempted to determine the tongue weight at the scale it's pretty hard for me to figure out what you actually have. You are correct though, a weight distribution system will distribute the tongue weight from the rear axle of the vehicle where the hitch is to the front axle.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 8,500 Pound Aluminum Toy Trailer
  • We have come across this concern before regarding aluminum frame trailers and the use of weight distribution. While steel is stronger than aluminum, Reese has stated that you should not have a problem using a weight distribution system with your trailer, even with an aluminum frame. You will just need to make sure you get the right system for your trailer and when drilling into aluminum, take extra care and do it carefully.

  • As long as the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer (plus the weight of anything stored in the bed or cargo area of the tow vehicle behind the rear axle) is between 600 and 1200 lbs, the # RP66084 would be an excellent choice. The # RP66084 is indeed a combination of the 66542,54970 and 26002. The # 19286 trailer ball you referred to is compatible with the RP66084. The Strait-Line system is the best sway control system we offer. Instead of reacting to sway once...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a Chevy Silverado 2500 and Keystone Cougar
  • When choosing a weight distribution system you will want to go by the tongue weight of the trailer, loaded and ready to tow, plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then choose a system with a tongue weight capacity range that puts that total weight in the middle of the systems range. If the loaded trailer weighed 8,200 pounds and you had nothing behind the rear axle of the truck, the typical tongue weight would be 10 to 15 percent of the...

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution/Sway Control Hitch for 2012 Ford F-150 and 7000-lb Trailer
  • The ideal way to select a properly-rated weight distribution system is to measure the trailer's fully-loaded road-ready tongue weight, with all gear, supplies and equipment in place. To this measured tongue weight you need to add the weight of anything in the tow vehicle that sits behind the rear axle, such as a loaded cooler or generator. Once you know your total tongue weight (TTW) you can choose a system with enough tension to properly shift some of this weight forward to the tow vehicle's...

  • Maximum Towing Capacity of 2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE 4x4 Crew Cab 6 Foot Bed
  • Because trucks can be equipped in a multitude of ways, it's not always easy to pin down the actual towing capacity. However, there is one sure-fire way to find the max towing capacity of your vehicle. Look for the vehicle ID sticker in the door jamb for the driver's door. Look for the GCWR, which is the gross combined weight rating. This weight represents the maximum combined weight of the truck and trailer. From that figure, subtract the GVW, the gross vehicle weight. The GVW represents...

It uses a 4 point, metal on metal friction to control sway as it occurs. It comes with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. It uses no lift chains, so the system is very easy to use.

You also need to add in the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or loaded cooler.

You are also right on the money with needing to include the weight of the propane tanks and batteries.
