Exactly what I needed to get my truck and trailer level again after my new tire upgrade. Everything trailer comes from you guys. 414593


Comments
As good as the day I wrote the review and as I stated everything trailer comes from etrailer. Just added a second sway control to my setup since we have a 26+ pull behind. Best company and service hands down.

The weight distribution shank will allow me to tow a travel trailer for vacation. The ordering was very easy and the quick delivery made my day. The shank appears to be very heavy duty. After towing, I will follow up with how it worked for me. Thanks!! 551824

My trailer sits very low by design. When towing it tows with the tail down. Not a performance issue at all. But it looks funny. I needed to lower the ball 2 inches for it to look sharp when towing. The Q and A at etrailer had a video showing all of the dimensions. This made my selection of this drop shank certain. Product arrived in just a few days. thanks etrailer 115747


Comments
The ped shank has worked perfectly. The trailer tows level reducing the amount of the trailer front surface from the wind resistance.But the best part is the trailer looks so sharp being towed level.I am looking forward to shopping a E-trailer in the future. Thanks

I normally tow my vintage Airstream with a vintage, 3/4-ton Suburban whose 7.4l engine has quite the taste for mid-grade gasoline. Economics has forced me to consider towing with my wife's '09 Yukon which has an incredibly high receiver hitch. Etrailer had just the shank I needed (the black part in the picture) at a great price to make everything work. And it got here quickly. I'm now literally a happy camper. 41555

Worked great. The pictures show how the extra length that is given. In my case I needed 2 more mounting holes down. This one gave me 3. I needed after I moved to a 4 wheel drive truck. 488864

It's just what I wanted and was easy to install. Shipping time was really quick. It's a good thing they pack it in a second box because the outside box was really beat up but everything inside wasn't touched. 746799

This one fit my trailer exactly as needed. The one I purchased just prior didn't have enough drop, my fault for not measuring things right. 714783

I purchased a new 2017 ford f250 to pull our 32 ft bumper pull camper. I noticed I had some trailer sway at highway speeds and the ball was just too high. I had no more adjustment on the shank I had. This one I purchased gave me extra adjustment and now the trailer tows perfect. The shipping was really fast. Also for pet owners now my tailgate can drop down so the dogs can jump into the back of the truck while the camper is hooked up 570506

More in depth review is provided on my Reese RP66073 product. The drop shank fit my needs and allowed enough depth or room for me to let my tailgate down, when using a standard three way hitch would cause my tailgate to hit my jack handle on the trailer. 567888

Not only is this an excellent product and exactly what I needed, the knowledgeable staff at etrailer helped figure it out--- couldn't have done that at another website! 521361


Comments
Like a lot of folks these days I often go right to Amazon when I need something. But Amazon does not have specialists on hand that can answer real questions and give suggestions about what would be the best product to meet your needs. Trailering with a camper is new to me and I knew I needed a ball and receiver bar that could be set up to a specific height and adjustable, but I had know idea what half the terminology meant and did not know what to ask for. Not only does etrailer have people on staff that answer the phone and can get me exactly what I need from listening to what I want to get done, but they have these people answering the phones on Sunday afternoons. That kind of service is invaluable these days and for me, its worth it to pay more for that. But guess what? etrailer not only knows how to figure out what I need, but they are pleasant on the phone, match prices and ship quickly. You cant beat that.

Needed a longer drop for my hitch ball to compensate for the new hitch style in the bumper of my 2016 Yukon. This works very well to address issue of level vs angled hauling of 30 foot Airstream. 516228

Product worked perfectly and is very heavy to say the least but by the weight of this shank I'd say without a doubt it will last a long time and take plenty of punishment. 501934

Staff was very helpful, was worried about getting the proper drop shank for my Pro Series Weight Distro. Kit but, Kim was on top of things and had me the right part in just a few minutes. I had to replace the original due to the purchase of a new and taller truck. I installed it and bolted it all up within a hour. This is my 4th dealings with etrailer and I can tell you I will continue to shop with them for all my future needs. Dave F. 379648
