I ordered a Reese anti sway weight distribution hitch and the box was somewhat damaged during shipment. Some small parts had fallen out. I called etrailer and they were very professional and shipped the missing parts very promply. Refreshing to see excellent customer service in this day and time. I am sold on this company!!

Review from a similar Round Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


provided shank would not work with my '15 4wd F150. Needed holes in the 90 degree angle of shank. I have not pulled trailer yet but this new WD hitch appears to be superior to my 10yo pro series trunion.


Comments
ok. etrailer sent me the correct shank. I had to hitch height one hole so I can tail gate with out striking handle area on hitch. Fords bulky handle area may be the cause. My old hitch was a little longer.

Review from a similar Round Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


I purchased my Reese WDS last year. It is awesome! so easy to hook up. Take the time and follow the directions when you first set it up the first time. From then on it is so easy to use and works like a charm! I would highly recommend this WDS. Keeps the front end of the truck level. Thanks for reading Pat CLE.

Review from a similar Round Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


This equalizer is amazing!!! Made of very heavy steel it weighs about 150 pounds. I can't believe how heavy it is, no one builds with that much steel any more. I'm towing a 5,000 lb camp trailer with a 2020 Silverado 1500. Before this the rear end sagged about 4 inches and the truck handled poorly. With this hitch it is a straight line from front bumper of truck to rear bumper of trailer. The truck feels very solid and handles like a dream. Relatively easy to assemble and adjust using included instructions. Highly recommend this product!

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSK With 4870 lb GVWR
    It's usually best to positively determine the trailer's as-towed tongue weight using a tongue weight scale like # C51701 before choosing a system, but because your travel trailer's specs are readily available, we can make a very good educated guess. According to the specs listed online, your Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSK has a GVWR of 4870 lbs, which would put it's fully loaded tongue weight range in the neighborhood of between 500 and 750 lbs. Because travel trailers are especially...

  • Does Reese RE44FR Weight Distribution System Offer Sway Control
    The Reese # RE44FR would offer weight distribution and doesn't offer any sway control. For a system with a similar capacity, the Curt TruTrack, part # C17500 would be an excellent choice for trailers with an as-towed tongue weight ranging from 800-1000 lbs. For tongue weights of 500-800 lbs, the # C17499 would be recommended. The # C17500 includes a 2-5/16 inch trailer ball, but the lower rated # C17499 doesn't include the trailer ball. For a 2 inch ball, use # A-90 or # 19286 for a 2-5/16...

  • Friction Sway Control For Reese Round Bar Weight Distribution RE44FR
    Yep, you have the exact right part to add sway control to your Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE44FR, which is the friction kit: - Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 This will definitely help with the sway you are experiencing, comes with everything you need for the install, and will work with the head unit of your Reese system. in regards to backing up, it will need to be unhooked. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well if you'd...

  • Which Reese Weight Distribution System to Use with 4,000 lb Trailer
    We have a great similar system that would work well for you but the part # RE44FR is rated too high for a 4,000 lb trailer. You'd have a very harsh ride quality with this due to the spring bars being rated for a much heavier trailer. Instead you'd want the part # RP65509 which has a tongue weight range of 200 to 600 lbs.

  • How Far Back From Ball Center Should L-Brackets of Reese Weight Distribution # RE44FR/49913 Install
    The L-brackets of the Reese weight distribution system # RE44FR need to install between 24.5 and 27.5 inches from the hitch ball center. I attached a picture that I took from the instructions that shows this. The range gives you a bit of flexibility to fit around trailer mounted accessories.

  • Can You Reverse With the Reese Weight Distribution System Installed
    The Reese Weight Distribution Systems like part # RE44FR will allow you to reverse without having to disengage the spring bars. That said, you need to make sure you are doing so at a relatively straight angle meaning you can't put the trailer at say a 90 degree angle in order to get into a tight space. If this is needed you would have to pop the springs bars off which won't take too long. Please note, there are some weight distribution systems that allow for a greater angle during reverse...

  • Replacement Spring Bar Lift Tool for Reese Weight Distribution System 49918
    Reese doesn't offer a spring bar handle as a replacement part for the # RE44FR weight distribution kit, but luckily the Equal-i-zer # EQ95-01-6050 would work for you.

  • Will the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit Work With Reese Weight Distribution System
    The Reese Weight Distribution System part # RE44FR does indeed have provisions for trailer sway control via a tab on each side of the head. These tabs are designed to be used with the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit part # 83660 which installs in the hole on the tab and then onto the frame with the included bracket. The frame bracket for the weight distribution system will install in front of the frame bracket for the friction sway bar so there will be no issues.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control for 3900 GVWR Camper
    You could indeed swap out the included 2-5/16 inch trailer ball for a 2 inch ball like # A-90. The # RE44FR 1150lb rated system you mentioned is rated way too high for your camper with 400 lbs of tongue weight. Using this system would have your trailer riding like a buckboard. A lower rated system is available as part # RE94FR, but in my option this system is still overrated for what you need, and you'll still need to purchase and additional trailer ball and a friction sway control unit...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendations for 10K Enclosed Car Trailer
    Anytime the weight of a trailer exceeds 50% of the vehicle's weight (which it does, in this case) weight distribution is highly recommended. Because enclosed trailers have a large surface area on the sides which act like the sail on a boat when impacted by crosswinds or turbulence from oncoming or passing traffic, using a weight distribution kit with an integral sway control component is also highly recommended. Weight distribution will level out the ride height between the truck's front...

  • Will the Reese Weight Distribution System RE44FR Allow the Tailgate To Open With Trailer Attached
    The Reese Weight Distribution Systems like part # RE44FR all come with a standard length shank which won't allow the tailgate to be opened with the trailer attached. That said, we do offer longer shanks which allow for this but they must be purchased separately, the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4600 is the most popular option. That said, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole will be 12-7/8".

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Shank to Long, Hits Speed Bumps and Drags on Inclines
    The Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3214 will be about 3 inches shorter than the one that was included in your Weight Distribution Hitch # RE44FR. I do worry that your round bars with that style hitch may also hit even with the new shank as the way they load into the hitch causes them to hang lower. If you see that as being an issue as well you may be best to go with an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37120ET as it uses a trunnion bar that slides into the hitch from the...

  • Can 725 lbs Tongue Weight Be Used with Reese Weight Distribution # RE44FR
    The Reese weight distribution system # RE44FR that you referenced has a tongue weight range of 600-1,150 lbs which means your tongue weight of 725 lbs would work perfectly. This would work great for your current trailer and if you plan to upgrade in the future it gives you room to grow as well.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 1,150 lbs Tongue Weight
    There are some great options for using a weight distribution hitch with your new trailer. I recommend the Reese Weight Distribution System # RE44FR. This WD system is rated for 1,150 lbs tongue weight and can tow up to 11,500 lbs. Check out the video linked below for more details. However, your 1,150 tongue weight rating for your trailer might be for just the empty trailer and not fully loaded. In that case, you need a higher tongue weight capacity system, such as the Curt MV Weight...

For a similar option that will work with the shocker air hitch I recommend the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Round Bar - 11,500 lbs GTW, 1,150 lbs TW # RE44FR as it uses the same style shank.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for Travel Trailer with 5000lb GVWR and 430lbs TW
    The Reese # RE44FR is really to much for your trailer. It's more than double that of what your Travel Trailer will require. You want the weight distribution hitch to match your trailer weights, not your maximum towing weights of your truck. For your Travel Trailer I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET. It is rated for up to 6,000lbs which fits your weight. Your dry tongue weight is 430lbs but this will increase close to the 600lb limit that this hitch has...
