Vintage Weight Distribution

Hi,
Does anyone know what the chances are that I would be able to find a hitch and the correct bars that would go with the "hardware" currently on my trailer?
Thanks for your help, MarkR

You might call Dan Piper at Vintage Campers in Peru, IN (765) 473-8088
Vintage Campers

I think I remember seeing several hitch parts in his vintage inventory.

I think current production bars and head will work with those cams. It will, of course, require normal adjustments.

I'd call Reese and see what advice they can give you regarding any new parts combined with that system. The head and weight distribution shanks you can still buy new. The bars are another thing....

Some of the older trailer dealers here have those vintage bars in stock from systems they've removed. We still use that system also and it does a great job for us.
