Is this right for you? Product Expert Lindsey S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a heavy-duty trailer with 1,000 lbs – 1,500 lbs of tongue weight that often veers out of line with your vehicle
  • Hate the tight, rigid ride you get with other systems that have built-in sway control
  • Have a lifted truck or a 2-1/2" receiver that won't work with the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches

No, if you:

  • Don’t have a lot of space to work with on your trailer frame, or if the frame is thicker than 2-1/2”
  • Have a boat trailer with surge brakes or an aluminum frame
  • Hate noise - the bars popping in and out of the cams can create a racket, especially during turns
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 hitch from Reese.

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.

This is a super heavy hitch for a large heavy camper. Take your time setting up the sway control bars and it will reward you with probably the best performance that will be had with a heavy, long bumper pull trailer. The hitch is a little noisy during turns, but that doesn’t bother me. My F250 4x4 handles our 32’ Jayco toy hauler with no drama after finding the right chain tension. Very happy with the hitch. Thanks Lori at etrailer.




by:

I purchased and set this up between my 2017 F250 diesel and a 12K, 37’ travel trailer. I use it in conjunction with the Gen-Y torsion hitch. The combination of these together is the most incredible tow solution I have ever had in place. My wife is happier to experience less load transfer back into the truck on bumpy roads and I am ecstatic to have much less to no white knuckle sway issues through the windy flats and as well as passing between semi trucks. This is a bolt on so I recommend having exactly the correct drill size and type available, as I used a step drill that reamed out one of the 4 holes initially. After speaking to the manufacturer, they said I could just bolt straight through the frame with a longer bolt and nut. The brackets are already formed to accommodate that option as well. In short, I will never tow with a different setup. Only down side is it tows so well that I forget sometimes the trailer is back there on long hauls. ;)

The package came on time and is complete. Good company.




by:

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.

Performing better than expected. No sway at all with 12,000 lb. trailer.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


This is simply a very good hitch. Installation instructions produced a completely flat tow when the trailer settles on the truck. My rig is sway free there's no extra up and down movement. The hitch is quiet going forward and backwards. Just really pleased.


Comments
Very well. An excellent hitch.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.


Comments
No problems, hitch still performs as I described in my write up a year ago.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


The product was not only a perfect physical fit for my truck and travel trailer, but it it works so well I no longer drive with white knuckles. The etrailer support team worked with me to figure out my real needs versus my preciously rookie "wants" which were somewhat uninformed wants. My Trunion Bar WD Hitch with Optional sway control makes ZERO noise in use or backing up, nor does it impart any felt knuckling.


Comments
Absolutely the best working hitch ever. No noise, clacking and knuckling like friction hitches. The sway control is amazing.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.


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

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


It really does the trick in terms of keeping down the camper sway. I can now drive on the interstate with no problems. Before I got this hitch, I just simply couldn't take the constant fighting as the camper swayed from left to right. The noise is not near as much as was advertised. It pops occasionally when making a tight turn but otherwise we just don't notice it much. The installation is worth mentioning. First, I am not fond of installing items like this. However, my wife and I took our time and installed in in a few hours. The instructions were excellent and (of course!) I still found a way to deviate from them which extended the installation time. However, in the end, it was not a terribly difficult job. This is not our first weight distribution hitch, but it will likely be our last.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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 .

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


I don't really have anything to compare this weight-ditrubuting hitch to because it is my first one. I had it installed on a 2021 Forest River Puma 37' foot travel trailer. I pull it with my 11 F350. Before the hitch, I hated pulling the trailer in crosswinds but after the hitch install the winds, dont seem to bother me at all. The hitch allows for tight turns and does not limit any movement. The trailer is much easier to pull and at times, I forget it is back there.

I did not install myself even though I typically would but did not want to mess up. I paid a local RV mechanic $100 to install the hitch. They completed the task in about 2 hours.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


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. Thanks again etrailer

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Installed this on a 2016 Silverado 1500 2wd dbl cab pulling a 2016 northland 30ft travel trailer. I was having the typical sway issues with crosswinds and passing big rigs etc. I am very pleased that this hitch solved the problem. Good quality product. I installed it myself and I had to buy about $100 in larger wrenches and a good quality step drill bit.

Review from a similar Strait-Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


Was not what I hoped, did not take the sway out of my 2021 Grand Design travel trailer. The hitch is now for sale online at half the price I paid for it. I built and installed gooseneck on my trailer... It now pulls great! Too bad you can not order the trailer built that way!


Comments
It is important to make sure the loaded tongue weight of the 2021 Grand Design Travel Trailer does not exceed the weight rating of the bars for this system which are rated for between 600 lbs to 1,200 lbs. Ideally you want the loaded tongue weight of the trailer to fall in the middle of that range to combat sway. I know that you ended up converting to a gooseneck but that is something to keep in mind for the future.

This is a quality product from Etrailer.com.
It
does everything they claim it is supposed to do. I have used it three times now since having it professionally installed by my local RV Dealer. It has eliminated the sway problems that I had been having at different times on different trips with my 31 foot Rockwood Ultralight 2701SS.
Very happy with this product and even more satisfied with the quick and outstanding service from etrailer.com. You wont go wrong with this combination.

I won’t know much about the product until it is installed and we have taken a trip with it pulling our trailer. Check back in late fall


Comments
This has turned out to be one of the best purchases we have made for our trailer. The ride is much more solid now, I almost don’t know I am pulling a trailer. Plus, we used to have a separate anti-sway bar, one of those friction ones, but now we only have to attach these weight distribution bars and all is good. We are about to leave on a 3 month trip with the confidence that at least this part of our outfit is 100 ready for the challenge.

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Reese Strait-Line RP66075
    You are correct that the Reese Strait-Line # RP66075 is going to require some drilling into the frame for installation. That weight distribution system is a heavy-duty model for 2-1/2" hitches, and each of the systems available for that size hitch receiver is going to require drilling. I've attached a link to a video review of the Strait-Line for you, as well as a link to our page with each of our weight distribution systems that fit 2-1/2" hitches.

  • Troubleshooting Nuts for U-Bolts on 17K Reese Strait-Line Twisting Off
    When installing the Strait-Line # RP66075 did you make sure that you have at least 2 threads showing past the end of the nuts for the cams? If you just installed them so that the nuts were flush with the end of the U-Bolts then that would be your problem. If you did install these correctly please let me know and send me a picture of your U-Bolts so I can help you troubleshoot further.

This system has a tongue weight capacity range of 1,000 to 1,700 pounds. The problem is that you may have to modify or remove the items on the trailer tongue, primarily the chest and platform the battery is setting on in order to use the system. The lift brackets on this system will be centered 30 inches back from the center of the ball cavity...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For 12K Equipment Trailer
    You said you estimate the tongue weight to be somewhere between 800 and 1,100 lbs. Most of the time we find that the tongue weight will actually be around 12 percent and then you add the weight of any cargo being carried behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle. Since the trailer is rated up to 12,000 lbs I recommend a system like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control, part # RP66130. This system has a weight capacity of 15,000 lbs and has a tongue weight capacity between...

  • 1,500 lb Tongue Weight Trailer Setup Weight Distribution System Recommendation
    Since you already have a weight distribution system you couldn't also install a second one like the part # RP66022 that you referenced that does have a 12,000 lb total trailer weight capacity. A couple things you should note are that the best way to fight trailer sway is with proper trailer loading. If you can get the tongue weight of your trailer to be 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight you will have the best chance at preventing sway. Also, you said that your loaded tongue weight...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Sway on 2014 Keystone Impact 301 Toy Hauler with Reese Weight Distribution
    The most important thing about picking the right weight distribution system for a setup is the loaded tongue weight of the setup as it will be towed. Also, having it properly set up for the trailer is very important. With that being said, if the tongue weight of your setup is going to fluctuate within the range of the weight distribution system quite a bit you will have to set it up differently based on that. I attached the installation instructions for the Reese Weight Distribution System...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For 1200 To 1500 LBs Tongue Weight Capacity
    The best thing for you to do is to use a system like the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution, part # RP66075. This system handles tongue weight from 1000 lbs to 1700 lbs. This would work for you because you would not need to worry about upgrading at a later date and making sure the system matches. Any system 1,500 lbs and higher will require a 2-1/2 inch receiver. To make sure everything is level i recommend the Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank, part # RP54977. This shank is designed for...

  • 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. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Since you will have varying tongue...
