Reese Strait-Line

well i think i have found my replacement for my pull-rite hitch.The reese Strait-line seems like a well made WDH and parts should be easy to get,i really wanted a Hensley but just cant swing it.If any one has used the dual cam trunnion style reese WDH tell me what you think Thanks

I'm running the 1,200lb version and have zero complaints. I did bend a snap up brakcet and have to upgrade to the heavy-duty style, but they sent them to me for free, so still no complaints.

FYI, my TT weighs in at 9,600lbs and 1,280 tongue weight.

I'am using the 1700lb hitch. I bent one of the HD snap up brackets. I bolted the beackets to the frame & haven't had a problem since.

I've had the Reese HP Dual Cam (1,200lb rated trunnion bars) installed on my TV/TT combination going on 6 years, no complaints here.

Make sure that the Reese Strait-Line you purchase is sized based on "loaded" tongue and TT weights...., not dry or UVW's. Like any WDH with integrated sway control, proper installation/adjustment is required to insure effective weight distribution and optimum sway control performance.

Since you are removing the Pull-Rite, confirm that your new TV reciever is rated to meet/exceed your TV and TT weight limit specifications.

The 330RLTS is a heavy trailer.
