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


Short and sweet: the hitch does what it is supposed to. I have zero sagging between my truck and trailer. Sway is virtually non-existent. The price was very reasonable and the install was super simple. I highly recommend this hitch and would definitely buy it again.

Review from a similar Round Reese WD in Weight Distribution Hitch


Bought this product about a year ago to help when towing our 25' travel trailer. Use a 2016 Silverado 1500 for towing and it makes a world of difference in stability particularly in gusty windy conditions. Installation instructions were straightforward - only took a couple of hours to get everything dialed in. Would definitely recommend and purchase product again.

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.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Weight Distribution Hitch

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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.

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2003 Trail Light by R-Vision
    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.

  • Are Replacement Round Bars Available for Reese Weight Distribution Hitch 49913
    I may have a solution for you to get back on the road, but I reached out to my contact at Reese and unfortunately they currently do not have a service kit that would allow you to replace lost bars from a Reese # RE44FR system (44913). The # RE44FR is a newly designed system and the connection between the head and bars is new and not compatible with any of the old bars. Currently your only available solution would be to replace your springs bars by getting a new # RE44FR altogether;...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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 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...

  • 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".

  • Is Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution Spring Bar Interchangeable with Other Brands
    Spring bars of weight distribution systems are not interchangeable based on diameter. They have grooves in the ends of them that allows them to fit into the head of the system and for every brand and line there are differences. So unless you had a Reese or Pro Series system 49913 already what you have now would not fit in the head of the # RE44FR. If you have something different let me know and I can see if there's a similar solution.

  • Are the Hitches Available for a 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Able to be Used With Weight Distribution?

However, if you were concerned about potential sway issues, we do have an option available that will alleviate these concerns.

  • Can the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball With Built-In Scale be Used With Reese Weight Distribution System
    In order to measure the tongue weight of your trailer for use with a weight distribution hitch, I recommend the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale # 5780. As you noted, the # WSUN-1 Weigh Safe 2" and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball w/Built-In Scale is not for use with weight-distribution systems like the Reese Pro # RE44FR. There is not enough clearance below a typical weight distribution head for the scale portion of this ball to attach without interfering with the system's spring bars. The Reese...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 1986 Holiday Rambler Alumalite Trailer
    I can help you determine the best weight distribution system to use, but you will need to confirm the GVWR and tongue weight of your trailer on the spec plate or sticker on the trailer. The best way to select a weight distribution hitch is with the tongue weight and GVWR of your trailer and the tongue weight should typically be 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer. Assuming you use the full GVWR of the camper then you'll need a weight distribution hitch with at least 900-lbs of capacity....

  • 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.

  • Would Switching Weight Distribution of Trailer Improve Persistent Sway
    If you are still getting significant sway with your setup the solution wouldn't actually be a different weight distribution system. What you are in need of most likely is actually most likely getting more weight forward in the trailer so that you can increase your tongue weight. Most of the time it's not enough tongue weight that causes sway but it can also be a trailer that's sitting to high in the nose or that there is damaged suspension components.

Your dry tongue weight is 430lbs but this will increase close to the 600lb limit that this hitch has...
