Reese Round Bar and Trunnion Bar Weight Distribution System Compatibility


I have a 12K Reese trunnion WD hitch I bought here and 2 trailers with brackets, a 12K and 10K. I have a buddy that wants to use the 10K, and has a 10K Reese round bar WD hitch. Do you know if his hitch will work on my trailer with the brackets in the same location? The brackets are bolted on, so I cant move them. I guess I am concerned with the length of the bars and if the chains will be perpendicular to the brackets. Thanks,

I see that you have purchased the Reese trunnion weight distribution system # RP66542. This installs on a trailer so that the chain lift brackets are centered about 30-inches back from the hitch ball. With the 10K round bar Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66086 the lift brackets are positioned the same distance from the hitch ball.

But note that if the other system is the Strait-Line, it must be installed using the appropriate cam arm assemblies, either part # RP58435 or # RP58460, depending on its age.
