Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Systems

When coupled to a vehicle, the trailer’s total ball weight is applied directly onto the rear of the vehicle between the rear axle and tow ball. Like a seesaw, this weight transfer causes the front suspension to lift. On road, this arrangement can cause trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness and misaligned headlamps.

Although ball weight remains the same, a Weight Distribution System ensures the load is evenly distributed through the vehicle’s chassis, helping restore the geometry of the tow vehicle to its natural state. Complete with a lifetime warranty, a carefully matched system is the perfect solution to regain

control of your vehicle and improve the enjoyment of your towing experience. With varying vehicle manufacturer recommendations and a multitude of options available, we recommend you speak to one of our trained sales staff to find the correct system for your requirements.

Drop Hitch

The Drop Hitch eliminates the need to unhitch your off-road camper, caravan, boat or horse float when you need to access the rear of your four-wheel drive.

Many four-wheel drives have the spare wheel mounted on or near the rear barn door. For many vehicles, the rear door cannot be opened when you attach a camper, caravan or boat.

The Tow Hitch uses the existing jockey wheel to lower the trailer without unhitching. This allows the rear barn door to be opened fully without obstruction, providing access to gear in the back of the vehicle.


  • Intended for use with the AT35, Tregg, Hyland and DO35 coupler or similar and any AS standard 50mm ball coupling
  • Laser cut

  • Raise or lower the drop hitch to level a trailer for overnight stops
  • Zinc plated for corrosion resistance
  • 3 year warranty

Redarc Tow-Pro Elite V3

The Redarc Tow-Pro Elite V3 features revolutionary inertia sensing technology and dynamically adjusts the braking force of the trailer by sensing vehicle deceleration.

Users can swap between automatic mode (inertia sensing) for smooth-braking, highway driving and a user-controlled mode for off-road adventures. Suitable for 12v or 24v systems, Redarc Tow-Pro Elite V3’s Active Calibration mode can be used with electric and electric/hydraulic braking systems — all while being easily installed using the single drill installation process.

Universal fit kits are available for vehicles equipped with a towbar and trailer socket, with a range of vehicle-specific kits also available to make installation a breeze!

  • How do weight distribution systems improve towing safety?

    Weight distribution systems are crucial tow bar accessories that evenly distribute the trailer’s total ball weight across the vehicle’s chassis. This helps restore the natural geometry of the tow vehicle, countering the effects of trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness and misaligned headlamps. By ensuring the load is evenly distributed, these systems significantly enhance the safety and convenience of your towing.

  • How do electronic brake controllers improve towing safety?

    Electronic brake controllers like the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite provide precise control over the trailer’s braking system. These towing accessories adjust the braking force dynamically based on the vehicle’s deceleration, ensuring smooth and effective braking even under tough conditions. This improved control helps prevent trailer sway and reduces the stopping distance, making the towing experience safer and more manageable for you and your passengers.

    At ARB, we can install an electronic trailer brake controller on your 4×4 before your next outdoor adventure. Visit us in-store for more information.
