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.
Other accessories in the Weight Distribution System range include:
- Drop shanks
- Hitch park
- Safety chain extenders
- Boat trailer adaptor
- Friction sway controller
- Dual cam high-performance™ sway controller
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
The Redarc Tow-Pro Elite is the first electronic brake controller of its kind. Featuring revolutionary inertia sensing technology, the Tow-Pro Elite dynamically adjusts the braking force of the trailer by sensing vehicle deceleration. When using the Proportional (inertia) mode, the Tow-Pro Elite ensures smooth, reliable and effective braking performance. A user-controlled mode provides confidence when towing off road.
Suitable for 12v or 24v systems, Redarc Tow-Pro Elite can be used with electric or hydraulically controlled braking systems.
Redarc Electric Trailer Brake Controllers
Electric trailer brake controllers provide brake activation to trailers fitting with electric brake actuators.
Two Redarc models are available from ARB to suit trailers with up to three axles. Both are easy to install and use, and feature a dial to adjust braking force and an LED light to indicate when the brakes are on.

Towing a boat, camper trailer or caravan can be difficult at the best of times. Clearview mirrors provide greatly increased rear vision, aiding the driver during cornering, lane changing and reversing. Clearview mirrors provide 100mm greater extension than standard mirrors when in the driving position, and offer an additional 100mm of extension when in the towing position.
The large, electrically operated mirror panel provides extensive rear vision, while a smaller, manually operated convex panel ensures there are no blind spots.
Mirrors are available to suit a range of vehicles, with owners able choose between electric or manual operation. Further enhancing aesthetic appeal are the options of either a black or chrome exterior finish.
