Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP58167 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RP58167, this the Reese replacement head for Reese weight distribution systems with trunnion bars. It's going to feature the forged raised ball platform here at this portion. That's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball. You're going to get all the mounting hardware and the serrated washers. The serrated washers are great to have because they actually allow the head to pivot without having to add any additional spacers or washers to the unit. You're going to get the two large bolts, you're going to get the two serrated spacers, you're going to get the spacer here in the middle and you're going to get the lock washers and the nuts.

It is completely set up and ready to be put right on to a shank that is made for weight distribution. Well take a measurement of the ball hole diameter, it's going to give us a measurement of an inch and a quarter so this is designed for hitch balls with an inch and a quarter shank in diameter. It's made from a solid steel construction with a black powder coated finish on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP58167. This is the replacement head for Reese weight distribution system with trunnion bars. .

You can count on Reese trailer equipment for what ever you haul. This is a replacement for my hitch which was stolen, and it also was a Reese so it seems to be the preferred hitch. 330776

We liked the results of how well the Reese weight distribution and sway control system so much that we went ahead and ordered the parts needed to set up a second vehicle to tow the same trailer. Reese and etrailer.com have made preparing for and towing the race car hauler a breeze! We couldn't ask for a better combination... 483572

The initial review matches how we feel about it now... We couldnt ask for a better combination!

Great job on all the videos and Q&A posts! Thank you. They gave a good understanding of what I needed and why. The only issue I have with this head is the tight quarters to tighten the nut for the 1 1/4 shank hole. The nut is a 1 7/8 which is not a common wrench or socket a person has around. Even with the included spacer and a 1" shank ball, the nut is still 1 7/16. A socket, I think, is required as the space in the head is tight. I took the head to a local semi garage and they had the socket to torque the hitch ball nut. Other than that, it is a good solid unit. 261741

First of all the product was perfect. I made a mistake and ordered the wrong one and Troy was amazing. Since I was busy he worked with my wife to get my mess worked out and helped us a ton. etrailer is a great company and I will be working with them for all my trailer needs in the future. Thank you Troy and staff at etrailer!! 402476

Good quality part, very sturdy construction and all seems to work very well. My only word of advice is there is a good possibility that the very first time you go to insert the trunnion bars to the head, they will be VERY tight and you'll have to use much more force than normal. My only guess is the powder coating took up some of the small tolerance there and you have to get that to wear just a tad first because now after inserting/removing several times everything works nice and easy. Everything else worked really well and seems like a quality piece. My only other note would be that you won't be able to fit an adjustable wrench on the ball nut to tighten down the ball with how the head is designed, you'll either need a socket or a box wrench , or at least that was my case with using a 2-5/16" ball with a 1-1/4" shank. 154692

It is good to be able to replace only the parts that are worn without having to buy the entire new system. Good idea to keep the trunnions greased but also to clean it up once in a while and check the wear. 572993

Reese replacement head looks good, won't be able to install because of the weather here in Michigan. Replacement for Reese Head that is showing wear after a couple years of use, would rather replace the part than have it fail while traveling. 498299

This was not my first etrailer purchase nor will it be my last. I needed to replace the hitch head of my Reese Straight-line Trunnion hitch (ofvwhich im a huge fan) after 15+ years of use. etrailer ‘s information and price couldn’t be beat. Throw in quick service and free shipping and it was a no-brainer. They are one of the best companies I’ve ever dealt with. 637398

Used this hitch all last summer. Works as advertised. Good quality. Has slightly different openings on the underside of the top that the bars angle in to (they go in at a different angle than may old hitch), but it works the same, tomato, tamato! I would definitly recomend this product. 611041

William B. Thank you so much for your professional help. Your patience with me was extraordinary. The product I ordered was the right one for my travel trailer. 582186

This was the replacement for the ball mount for the Reese Weight Distribution System I purchased about five years ago. The original ball mount had excessive wear (probably because I didn't know it needed to be lubricated each day while it was being used). This ball mount is exactly the same as the original. I also ordered the replacement bolts and washers (58207) because I didn't understand that the replacement ball mount included all new washers and bolts so these were not needed. etrailer has sent me a return authorization for the bolt and washer kit. 578434

This W/D head has performed perfectly over the past year. At first, I had mistakenly ordered the wrong head. With the help of etrailers technical support representatives, we chose this model to meet my needs. I have never second guessed that decision. I have complete confidence when towing with this. 521007

Finally got around to installing new hitch equipment. The new shank and Reese head worked out to be a fine combination for my 2018 Ram 2500. The longer shank was what I needed for my camper. Great parts and a great price and fast delivery. thanks a lot. Mike B. Northwood Ohio 507779

Excellent! Just about ready to start using the camper again this year. The hitch equipment I bought will be put to good use again. I am well satisfied with the quality and the price I paid. Thanks again.

The head we had on our hitch had a stress fracture that we did not see. We trailered our camper 200 miles and that stress gave way as we drove into the driveway. It's a holiday weekend and we are stranded. After many online searches and phone calls we found the part on etrailer.com. We had it shipped next day and it arrived in plenty of time for us to make it home that same day. We were worried about it being the right part since they are basically out of date. But it was and the camper towed better than before. 402393

There was a change in the design of the head - they increased the height of the ball mount area (thicker 1/4" or so). This cause a change in all of the geometry of the Wt. Dist. System, so a complete realignment of the trailer to the truck was required. This turn out to be a good thing! I was at limits on some of my adjustment before and this brought everything to mid range. The towing ride was really improved after the realignment. This is a great improved product. 303946

  • Replacement Arms and Shank for Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
  • By hitch I assume you mean the shank. I would need to know the model number of the weight distribution system to get you the correct replacement arms. If you could get back to me with that information I may be able to find a solution for you.

  • Replacement Head and Shank for a Weight Distribution System
  • It sounds like you are looking for the head and shank to a weight distribution system. If this is the case then we have several for you to choose from. However, they are not universal so I would need to know which system you have in order to make sure you get the correct replacement. If there are any part numbers on the spring bars or frame brackets then please send them to me but if not, a photo of the unit would also be very helpful. I have also attached our list of replacement weight...

  • The Replacement Head for Reese Weight Distribution System - Trunnion Bar # RP58167 is confirmed to go with your sway bars. There are two possible sway bar styles and that will impact the brackets needed. If you have the tapered bars that are straight at the end like # 58346 then you can use the # RP6637 for chain use with Reese Replacement Chain Kit # 55630 but the SC system brackets are no longer available. If you have the bars with the curve like # RP66009 then you will use brackets...

  • Replacement Spring Bar and Head Recommendation for 1,200 lb Draw Tite Weight Distribution
  • I wish we had replacement parts that would work, but the bars you have aren't compatible with the current bar designs made so it's going to come down to you replacing the head and the bars. So for bars you would need the part # RP66009 which has the 1,200 lb capacity you need and then for a head you would want the part # RP58167.

He noted that there may be a slightly different fit in the new head, but that your bars and trunnions are fully compatible with the replacement head.

  • Replacement W/D Head and Dual Cam for Reese # RP66074 Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
  • The shank you referenced, part # RP54977 would be a good choice for you, as long as it provides sufficient drop. We have an FAQ article that shows how to determine the rise or drop needed in a ball mount. The procedure is the same for a weight distribution shank. The # RP58167 would be the correct replacement weight distribution head for the # RP66074 Strait-Line Weight Distribution system you have. Be sure to lubricate the head/trunnions as mentioned in the instructions that I've linked...

  • What Size Trunnion Bars To Fit On Reese High Performance Trunnion Head with 63970 Shank, # RP54980,
  • Yes the Reese High Performance Trunnion Head with Shank, # RP54980, comes with the, # RP58167, trunnion head. You are going to need to measure the bar thickness you have. The earlier bars were 1-1/8 inches and the later bars are 1-3/8 inches. You mention the 22210D that is stamped on your trunnions. That is the casting number which does not pertain to the part numbers, so I would not worry about the casting numbers. The Reese Replacement Trunnion and Pin, # 58098, uses a spring bar...

  • Replacement Head Recommendation for a Draw Tite Weight Distribution System
  • Most likely if you have a round bar WD system you would need the # RP58112 or if a trunnion part # RP58167, but since I don't know how old your system is it would be hard for me to say for certain. The best option I could make would be for you to check out both of these head to see if they match up to what you currently have and go with whichever one matches your spring bar style.

If your old bars were rated below 1,200 pounds and are over 3 years old, part # RP66009 will not work.

To change the bars you would also need to change the head with # RP58167. But depending on the age of your existing system it may be possible. What I recommend is to get the new spring bars since you will need them either way, # RP66009 for one bar, and if they do not fit the head then you would need to replace...
