It is part of a Reese cam & saddle hitch set-up

A complete set up will include torsion bars, hitch head, ball, head, & shank.

This is part of old styel reese now called dual cam, this is a lot better than new style, no screw threads to adjust or break, no complicated set up, just bolt onto A frame seat bars in saddle tighten everything. Bill

To get it right, the old style, is extremely complex. Trailer frame level, tongue weight, hitch head height and angle, ball angle, cam end of trunnion to ground clearance, force necessary to lift cams up, more parts than you'd think, etc. Call Larry 402 594 5161 But... once set correctly nothing can compare i.e. does not change, nothing heats up, can barely feel high speed (and close) truck tractor passes, rear end trailer waggle never gets severe. A smart bridge operator on the Mackinau bridge was holding cars, vans, motor homes, semi trailers, etc due to unsafe side winds. He knew the Reese system. 1968 31' International behind 1975 Coupe D'ville never even felt the 75 MPH side winds.

There has been a lot of discussion lately on hitches. Everyone has their favorite and that's ok by me. You try the Reese Straight Line and you will never have to discuss hitches again. It works for me and I have a 30ft Classic So and they don't get much heaver than that.

The parts you show in the pictures are part of the anti sway part of the reese hitch,you are lacking the spring bars and hitch head,you might luck out and find the rest on e bay

You might be able to buy a complete matched system cheaper than buying parts. The classifieds on this site, might be a start. Many WBCCI local sites have used equipment pages. Craigslist is sometimes useful. Usual prices are about 25% of new price.

I'm glad I found this thread. I have the exact same thing and I had no idea what it was.
