Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Round Bar - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW - RE34FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.2 out of 5 stars   (170 Customer Reviews)

The Reese Pro Round Bar weight distribution system is designed to evenly distribute weight and reduce trailer sway for a smooth and comfortable ride. Includes a deep-drop shank and a preinstalled hitch ball.


Package was received on time and UPS delivered it intact and box was in good shape even though it was very heavy. It took a couple days until I got to open it for install on my truck and trailer. I was disappointed to find that the fasteners were missing for installation of brackets on trailer frame.


works great on my 2021 Frontier, towing a 3500-4000 lb camper. Have run 2300 miles this season, sometimes in really windy conditions, and the hitch makes all the drama go away. Wish I'd had a similar hitch on my previous larger truck.


Works great, makes a huge difference. Used on a 2014 Tacoma pulling a ~5k travel trailer. Without the weight distribution hitch, the truck was bobbing all over the place and it was exhausting to drive. Now the truck sits level and tows much more smoothly.

I took away one star because the method of installing/removing the bars is not as good as I've seen on other hitches. Unless you wear gloves, your hands will get all greasy and there are a bunch of loose parts that you have to keep track of. It works, but definitely not as slick as some of the (pricier) options out there.


For the price, this has been a good hitch. The setup is pretty simple as long as you're a little mechanically inclined and have the tools for the job. Placement of the round bars and their removal each trip is simple. We have had zero issues with trailer sway and have no sag in the rear of tow vehicle. Very confident towing with this hitch. The only drawback is that the hitch will eat a significant portion of your vehicle's payload if you have a smaller tow vehicle. Just do the math and don't overload.


I'm pulling a 21 foot camper trailer with a 1/2 ton pickup and it does help reduce sway and rocking motions. The instructions could be better written and easier to understand. The box it was shipped in was destroyed and it was repackaged in ups boxes before I received it and no parts were missing.


The packaging container was delivered damaged. The contents needs to be inspected and verified against the bill of materials

Customer Service will reach out to you. I have emailed the parts list to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 12/16/2021


The product seems good haven't used it yet but the packaging flat out sucks,box was destroyed and the ups guy asked if I wanted to just send it back.I hope all the parts are there.and I will have to paint it.

Thanks for letting us know! I will send your information to our customer service team and they will reach out to you in the near future.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 08/31/2022


The shipping is a huge issue with this piece. First shipment got lost and the replacement item came in pieces in my driveway. Still not sure if it is all there. etrailer did a great job sending a replacement and communicating. It’s just a heavy piece that should go by freight.


Very happy with this WDH. easy to install, easy to hook up and take off.

EXCELLENT. easy to hook up and keeps the trailer level while traveling.
Joe - 07/22/2022


Worked better than I expected it to. Leveled camper and caravan nicely. Pulls level and smooth at low and high speed. One warning though be very careful with the spring arms. The first time I disconnected it the van was at an angle to the camper. The first side came off easy. I didn't expect (and should have) the other side to be different, but it was apparently under a lot of pre-load and when it snapped off the bracket it slammed to the side and broke my shin bone. My stupid so don't blame the hitch.


Works excellent


Excellent value and really well built, high quality hitch. Install was pretty easy. It took me about 2 hours mostly because I was taking my time and being thorough. My rig is a 2019 Dodge Durango sxt plus pulling a 2021 Cherokee wolf pup 16bhs. The difference in ride quality is night and day with this hitch on vs without it. Without question the best investment I’ve made in camping gear and well worth every penny. The written instructions are fairly easy to follow plus there is a really good step by step video available on YouTube.


Very reliable company for many years.
bar made a big difference pulling the travel trailer. Free shipping was also helpful.


It was easy to install, Only dropped the truck 1/4" front and rear compared to 2" rear and raised the front by 1" before the hitch. As far as the sway control, I dint notice much difference.


Have not tried it yet but delivery was right on time


Great Company to purchase from. Very good communication. Top quality hitch, with easy instructions. The hitch was delivered with one part missing due to the shipping. The missing part was delivered within a couple of days. Thank You etrailer.


Product was shipped and arrived in a very timely. The eTrailer representative, Gwen, was extremely friendly and helpful in confirming stock and shipping options of item I was looking for. Installed unit in a couple hours and directions were clear and straight forward. I would recommend this product to another customer and eTrailer for products like this.


The product is what I expected, and more. But the package is much less, UPS had to tape the box so the parts wouldn't get lost. Otherwise I am quite satisfied.


Quick service and delivery.


Product was as advertised. Customer service was excellent.

  • Can Adjustable Shank Included with Reese Weight Distribution System # RE34FR Be Flipped
    I believe you are referring to the adjustable shank that comes included with the Reese Weight Distribution System # RE34FR. If this is the case (just let me know if it isn't) it can indeed be flipped so that it's used in either the drop OR rise position. I have attached a cutout from the install manual below that shows the dimensions when used in either orientation.

  • Will Reese RE34FR Round Bar Weight Distribution System Allow Trailer to Be Backed Up
    The Reese # RE34FR Weight Distribution kit can be used while backing your trailer, but if you need to make sharper turns that could possibly cause the trailer to jackknife, you'll want to remove the spring bars before backing the trailer. The owner's manual lists no prohibitions regarding using a weight distribution hitch, so the # RE34FR system you looked at would certainly be compatible with your 2021 Honda Pilot. The system is designed for trailers with fully loaded and ready to tow...

  • Will the 8K Reese Weight Distribution System RE34FR Work On a 4,500 Lb Trailer
    Yes, the Reese Weight Distribution System with Shank part # RE34FR will work on a 4,500 lb trailer. That said, hitch weights listed online are dry and you also need to add the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle. Therefore, you are likely underestimating the tongue weight so this system will be more ideal with this in mind.

  • Should 2017 Carado Axion Use Weight Distribution Towing 2022 Sun Lite 16BH
    Since your trailer would end up weighing less than half of your 2017 Carado Axion's total weight a WD system wouldn't be as strongly recommended but it wouldn't be a terrible idea. For a system that would be rated well for your camper the Reese Pro Round Bar kit part # RE34FR would be a great solution.

  • Can You Back Up With Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution RE34FR
    The only weight distribution systems that do not allow backing up are those that use friction sway control (which is an added piece), so yes, you can absolutely back up with the Reese Pro system you asked about, which is the following part number: - Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Round Bar - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # RE34FR You do not have to remove the spring bars of the # RE34FR or disconnect other parts, you can back up your tow vehicle with the system on.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Jayco Jay Flight 145RD
    The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control part # RE34FR is what I recommend for a Jayco Jay Flight 145RD. This system is rated for up to 6,000 lbs so even with your trailer fully loaded you won't ever exceed its capacity. It's a complete system that comes with everything you need including a pre-torqued hitch ball.

  • Is Weight Distribution System Needed to Tow 16 ft Caravel with 2015 GMC Sierra 1500
    You'd probably be okay without a weight distribution system but I pulled up the weight of an Airstream Caravel and found that it weighs 3,500 lbs and has a tongue weight of 500 lbs which is enough weight that you would see benefit by going with a WD system like the Rees Pro part # RE34FR. Normally if the weight of the camper is over half the weight of the vehicle a WD system is recommended.

    I looked up the weight of your 2003 Trail light by R-Vision and found that it would have a tongue weight range between 400 and 600 most likely so based on that the weight distribution you'd want is the Reese Pro Round Bar part # RE34FR which has a tongue weight range of 200-600 lbs and has sway control built into it.

  • Upgrading Reese Weight Distribution # RE34FR to 800 Pounds of Tongue Weight
    I have a higher capacity solution for you. I confirmed with Reese that they do not currently manufacture higher-capacity bars to upgrade the weight capacity of your Reese Pro Round Bar System # RE34FR. With that being said, we do carry the upgraded weight capacity model of the # RE34FR. That is the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Round Bar - 11,500 lbs GTW, 1,150 lbs TW # RE44FR. The tongue weight of this hitch is 600 lbs - 1,150 lbs.

  • Difference Between Reese 49911 And Reese 66557 Weight Distribution Systems
    Other than the price and weight difference, the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control # RE34FR uses round bars, and # 66557 uses trunnion bars. These bars are usually priced higher than round bars nd are utilized in more heavier applications. Additionally, trunnion bars offer more ground clearance than round bars.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2005 Chevy Equinox
    As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2005 Chevy Equinox that was rated for weight distribution use like the Draw Tite part # 76028 weight distribution will be your best option as it will reduce suspension sag like you want, but since it's only option that also distributes tongue weight up to the front axle braking and handling is improved as well. The Reese Pro Round Bar part # RE34FR would be an excellent choice that is rated correctly.

    If the unloaded tongue weight of your 2015 Evergreen Ascend trailer is around 300 pounds, I don't think the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE44FR is going to be the best option for you. This will have a minimum tongue weight rating of 600 pounds, which sounds like you would need to load the front of your trailer very heavy to get to. With that said, it sounds like the better option will be the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE34FR. This will have a tongue weight range...

  • Troubleshooting Height Adjustment for Reese Weight Distribution System
    The Reese Weight Distribution System w Shank - Round Bar - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # RE34FR is 49911 you referenced. It definitely doesn't sound right that there is more than 4 inches of difference from the base of the hitch ball when inverting your weight distribution shank with closest settings. I'm attaching an article to assist. If you need something that allows more of that middle adjustment, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Weight Distribution Shank - 8" # C17100.

  • Is There A 10 Hole Adjustment Weight Distribution Shank Compatible W/ Reese Pro Round Bar RE34FR?

  • What Does Tongue Weight Capacity of etrailer Hitch for 2017 Toyota Sienna Mean
    The etrailer hitch # e98837 that you referenced has a 350 lb tongue weight rating when towing a trailer not using a weight distribution system but when you do use a weight distribution system the tongue weight rating would go up to 500 lbs. This is because the WD system distributes some of the trailer's tongue weight up to the front axle thus allowing the hitch to carry more weight. For a WD system rated for your setup the Reese Pro Bar part # RE34FR would work well.

  • Simplifying Attaching Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution On a 2022 Cherokee Wolf Pup 16BHS
    The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE34FR includes a lifting tool to make positioning the bars on the sway brackets easier. As these bars create the friction for the system which reduces trailer sway they should never be greased. Most users will lower the trailer onto the hitch ball and lock the coupler to the ball. Then they will use the tongue jack to raise the trailer up which will make installing the spring bars much easier. If your 2022 Forest River Cherokee Wolf Pup 16BHS...

    You can back up while using the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution system. However, if you're making very sharp turns I would disconnect the bars to avoid potentially damaging them. The # RE94FR is overkill based on your tongue weight. Assuming that is your loaded tongue weight, you want to use the # RE34FR instead. Ideally you want to be in the middle of the tongue weight range. This WDH has a range of 200-600 lbs which would be perfect for you. Since you're basically right in the...

    The main reason for the price difference is the different construction used for the weight distribution hitches.

While the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE34FR uses flat stock combined with tube steel that is welded together. The process of cutting and welding the materials together is far more inexpensive than casting parts. You can add sway control to the Reese Weight...
