Weight Distributing Hitch

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.


Block-Style Washer

Unique Features of Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution

The easy-to-use, block-style washer on the Reese system makes adjusting the tilt of the weight-distribution head a snap. This uniquely shaped washer can be rotated and positioned between blocks on the weight-distribution head for simple, secure positioning. And the numbered sides provide reference points should you need to adjust your system between different tow vehicles. This is a huge improvement over the standard pin-and-washer method, which involves piling washers - one on top of another - onto a difficult-to-access pin to obtain the desired tilt.



The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight-distribution head and secure with pins for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and hot rolled steel construction, these bars offer superior flex, ensuring a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer. In addition, these specially designed bars have rounded, hooked ends, making them the only kind of spring bars that can function with Reese's active-style, dual-cam sway control.


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.

This system is great, I have a 2009 ford F-150 crew cab and pulling a Coachman freedom express 20 foot trailer. Went through kanas City and the wind and tractor trailers were no match for this system. Never swayed once. I was going for the 260.00 system, but Im glad Judy explain to me and went with 600.00 system, Thank you. 223566

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


The sway control and load distributing hitch seems to work very well. My only gripe would be that the installation manuals for the combo kit (load distributing AND sway control system) are really nothing more than one manual for the one part and another manual for the other part. The problem is that if you start installing the load distributing part first, you realize eventually that you should have stopped at one point and switched over to the other manual. Someone at the manufacturer could definitely do a much better job with writing the manual (and making a single, comprehensive manual for this combo system). That's my only gripe. Because of that (and having a tube frame aluminum trailer with some wiring in my way...which required a couple of minor additional steps, the entire installation took roughly 4 hours) 224503


Comments

Its so hard to remember a year ago, but everything Ive purchased is inserviceable condition. The complete kit load distributing and anti-swayrig is very good. Installation was pretty straight-forward and it seem towork well, though....its tough to tell because I changed work trailers atthe same time as I changed trucks...so the scientific experiment part onlychange one variable went right out the window on that one.no complaints...thats a good thing in my book. :

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


Company Rep ( Tommy C) was amazingly helpful in doing rapid research with Reese company and determining that my existing system although still functional contained obsolete parts and should be replaced to accommodate second trailer needs. New pets order was immediate and I received all necessary parts on 3rd day from order. Exceptional! Now a design complaint regarding mounting the Reese Sway Control brackets to trailer frame tube (2"x6"-1/8" ) with press in "nut rivets". This frame is not adequately thick enough to accept this attachment procedure unless these items are welded in place to keep them from "stripping out". Holes in frame were correctly drilled per instruction. My machine shop, one of the most respected in Illinois, that this is a very common situation which can only be remedied by a skied welder. This is something that Reese and you should address. Hope this will assist others. Thanks for your excellent service. 196491

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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.

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

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.

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


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 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

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

Review from a similar Reese Strait-Line in Weight Distribution


I recently purchased the straight line dual cam hitch with sway control. I've dealt with etrailer in the past and have always been very satisfied with not only the product but also the company. When I called etrailer I had some concerns as to whether I was looking at buying the correct hitch (12000 lb.) or needed the 15000 lb. I spoke with Nik and voiced my concerns. He was knowledgeable and we agreed that the 15000 lb. would be a better fit for my application. Within a few days UPS delivered the hitch. Really quick service. Now, I hate calling a company to order anything. It always seems you get the hard sell to by other items and it is very irritating. Not so with etrailer. We had a pleasant conversation with no hard sell. Just what I was looking for and that was it. I haven't had the opportunity to install the hitch yet but I'm sure if I need any help it's just a phone call away. Thanks Nik and etrailer. 159581

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 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

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

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

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.

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: Excellent quality, well built and easy to use/adjust. Installed on a 18ft Enclosed car hauler. Installation: Instructions were easy to follow. Took about 2.5 hours to complete. Be prepared to take a trip to the hardware store if you don't own large wrenches or large metal drill bits. Customer Service: By far one of the best customer service departments I have ever talked with. Took the time to explain all the different products available. After talking with customer service for about 45 mins, decided to go with this setup for my 18ft car hauler.

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.

I am very pleased with this product because it solved my sway problem on our new travel trailer. I tried towing with just a ball and receiver hitch, bought a chain type equalizer hitch and then added a stabilizer bar and still had problem with swaying. I had in mind to purchase a different type system but Katie suggested this one. It works very well and makes pulling this trailer more enjoyable and much safer. Before I installed this hitch if I had a truck pass me they would just about blow me off the road! Now I can feel the wind move it just a little (I would call this "normal") 286612

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

Hitch arrived in two boxes which were in good shape considering the weight. On opening all parts were received. Not having time to install yet, but having tested the placement of hitch, the most time needed will be checking measurement and drilling the frame of the trailer after that its straight forward bolting together. This could be a hard project if it was my first time, but can be done easily if you have the right tools The Reesee strait line hitch looks like a well design hitch witch should handle the weight and sway.

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

Good system design and solid. Prevents sway, side to side, up and down because of the shape of the arms' end, the free moving holder and the chain link length that is adjustable. You can see at the turns how the system pushes back trying to straighten the convoy. And even backing up is fine, others cannot do backup. It will lift the truck to be even both the front and the back. I recommend. Best in class 411014

If you are experiencing trailer sway under normal towing conditions, you should reevaluate how the trailer is loaded and make sure that you have at least 10 to 15 percent of the total trailer weight, loaded and ready to tow on the tongue of the trailer. Once the trailer is loaded properly if you are still experiencing sway when passing large trucks or under adverse wind conditions, a sway control system with weight distribution...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for R-Pod Trailer
  • For your R-pod travel trailer, the biggest issue you will face is sway , so I recommend he Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Round Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # RP66086 which is rated for total tongue weight between 200 and 600 lbs. Total tongue weight includes not only the loaded trailer tongue weight, but also any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2015 Ford Escape. The hot rolled spring bars along with the dual cams make this the only system that actively...

  • Using a Weight Distribution System to Level a 2006 Toyota Tacoma and Cargo Trailer
  • The best way to reduce sag at the rear of a vehicle when towing a trailer is to use weight distribution. I recommend a system that has built-in dual cam sway control to prevent trailer sway before it starts. For the right sized system, you will need to know the tongue weight and gross trailer weight of the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. For example, if the tongue weight of the trailer is 400 pounds, you would need a system with a 200 to 600 pound tongue weight capacity....

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a 2010 Ford F-150 and Coyote Trailer
  • To determine the best weight distribution and sway control to use with your Coyote trailer and 2010 Ford F-150, the most important thing to consider is the tongue and gross trailer weights of the trailer. Also, check to make sure your hitch is rated for use with a weight distribution system. If your trailer weighs 4,500 pounds and has a 380 pound tongue weight, you will need a system that encompasses that range. The Reese Weight Distribution System, # RP66540, is in that range. This...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation and Installation Instructions for a 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • For your 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy, # 90185. This is one of our highest rated and most popular brake controllers. I have included installation details for the brake controller below. To install a brake controller, you will need to do a little hard wiring. I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and he stated that the only wire Jeep provides is the electric brake output wire that goes back to the 7-Way trailer connector. This wire is probably a light green...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a 2010 Ford F-150 Supercrew 4x4
  • I recommend a weight distribution system with dual cam sway control that prevents trailer sway before it starts. With a tongue weight of 580 pounds, you will want a system with a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses that amount of tongue weight. I recommend the Reese Round Bar Strait-Line Hitch with Shank, # RP66087. This system has a tongue weight capacity range of 400 to 800 pounds so your 580 will be about in the middle which is what you want. This system also comes with...

  • Weight Distribution and Brake Controller for Towing a 23 Foot Travel Trailer with a 2004 Ford F-250
  • Yes, the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System item # RP66086, would work with the trailer weight fully loaded at 5,500 pounds, but you will be very close to the maximum recommended tongue weight rating for the spring bars in the weight distribution system. A better option would be the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, item # RP66087, which will allow for more tongue weight should your trailer load get heavier in the future. I have included links to the installation details below. Along...

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control For a 2009 Ford F-150 Towing a 4,000 Pound Trailmanor Trailer
  • For a trailer with 350 pounds of tongue weight, the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, # RP66086, would be a good choice. It has a tongue weight capacity range of 200 to 600 pounds which puts your trailer tongue weight in the middle of that range and that is right were you want to be. You will also want to keep in mind that when calculating tongue weight, you also have to factor in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I have included a link to our...

  • Strait-Line Weight Distribution Recommendation for 350 lb TW Trailer Towed by 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • There are weight distribution systems that would work very well for you, but the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-1000 that you referenced would be better used with a trailer with more tongue weight than the 350 lbs of your trailer. You should also note that you will want to know the loaded tongue weight of your setup, and that any cargo that is behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle will be considered tongue weight also. I attached an FAQ on weight distribution hitches for...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendations for a 2004 Ford Explorer
  • Weight distribution can only be used with a Class III hitch or higher. What you can do if you want to use weight distribution is add a Class III trailer hitch. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132, will fit under the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch that you have on your 2004 Ford Explorer. With this hitch installed, you can add weight distribution provided that the vehicle owners manual allows the use of weight distribution as well. If you can go this route, you would the need a weight distribution...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Set Up and Positioning of Spring Bar Brackets to the Trailer Frame
  • My contact at Reese stated the instructions provide the user with a small area to make adjustments as needed between 18 inches and 19-3/8 inches from the center of the coupler. Also you can make sure the bracket that holds the chains are the appropriate distance from the coupler as indicated in the instructions. So at 19 inches, you are within that range. The chains being slightly off vertical really depends on how much they are off. A few degrees off will not be a problem but if it...

  • Can a 2000 Dodge Durango Tow a 9,000 Pound Travel Trailer Using Weight Distribution
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the 2000 Dodge Durango owners manual for the towing capacities of the vehicle. From what I could find the max towing capacity of the vehicle is 7,350 pounds. Another possible issue is the tongue weight of the trailer which is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. A trailer weighing 9,000 pounds would have a tongue weight of 900 to 1,350 pounds. Both the trailer hitch and the vehicle would have to be rated at least...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-150 that is Lowered
  • Weight distribution is deigned to take out any sag on the vehicle by re-distributing the weight to all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer so you can have a level tow. One thing that I will warn you about is that by lowering the truck (also applies to lifted trucks) it makes the towing capacity unknown and in most cases actually reduces it. I would check with whoever did the lowering or the manufacturer of the product used if you used one to determine if the trucks towing capacity was...

  • Recommendation for Helping Control Sway on a Enclosed Trailer
  • The ProSeries friction sway bar # 83660 it will definitely help but won't eliminate it. This will be the most economical route, but if you wanted to ensure the enclosed trailer will be completely secure I recommend a full weight distribution system with integrated sway control. We offer a variety of systems that use different types of sway control. I really like the Reese Stait-Line Series like # RP66086, because of its 200-600 lbs. tongue weight capacity and 10,000 lbs. gross towing...
