Reese Strait-Line Dual Cam

Anyone know the cheapest place to buy the complete hitch set up with the shank. I just sold my camper with the hitch set up included and want to order a new set up for my new camper.

what size are you looking for?

I went to the Reece site to find the size I needed and googled the part number.

same one I have, here is where I got mine:
Reese Part No. 66088 - Strait-Line Round Bar Hitch Weight Distributing Hitch Bars

They are the retail side of Keystone automotive, the largest direct to dealer parts supplier in the world. Shipped same day I ordered, had it next day (they are only one state away.)

That is the round bar set up. Why did you choose that over the trunnion style. I had the trunnion on my old camper and had no issues. Just wondering?

I was not paying that much attention, but you are correct, that is round bar and I did in fact get the trunnion. IIRC the big difference is the ground clearance, the trunnion offers more.

IMHO, the round bar setup works best for trailers with the coupler mounted on top of the trailer tongue, and the trunnion setup works best for trailers with the coupler mounted on the bottom of the tongue.

Check out Etrailer for cost comparison.
