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.

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.

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


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.

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


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!

Ask the Experts about this Reese Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Comparing Reese Weight Distribution RE94FR to Fastway e2 FA94-00-0600
    The Reese weight distribution system part # RE94FR is the best value for your Rockwood Geo 19FD and would be what I would go with if I were you. It's just as effective as the Fastway e2 part # FA94-00-0600 but at a much better price.

  • How do I Setup my Reese 49912 Weight Distribution System with Rear Air Bags on my 1996 Chevy Tahoe
    Both great questions! To the first yes you should re set your Reese Weight Distribution System w Shank part # RE94FR after installing the air bags like the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs part # F2101. As for the second question you should hook up the camper to the vehicle and level it with the air bags. Then hook up your weight distribution system. This will help to aid in your air bags and the weight distribution system working together really well and not over doing the effect.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for my Rockwood Mini Lite and my 2013 VW Touareg
    The Reese Weight Distribution System w Shank part # RE94FR is a good weight distribution system and is in the range you're looking for but its design is more for utility type trailers because it offers little to no sway control. With campers they act a lot like sails in the wind or when passing or getting passed by 18 wheelers. I instead recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control part # FA94-00-1061. While still cost effective it gives you the much needed sway...

  • Can Trailer Be Backed up with Reese Round Bar Weight Distribution System Connected
    With most weight distribution systems (including this Reese kit part # RE94FR), you can back up with the spring bars connected as long as you are backing up mostly straight, but if you are going to angle the trailer and tow vehicle sharply you need to disconnect the bars otherwise you may damage them.

  • Backing Trailer While Using Reese RE94FR Round Bar Weight Distribution System
    It's not a matter of placing stress on the bars. When backing the trailer, especially at a sharp angle it's pretty easy to jackknife the trailer, and when it happens it happens very quickly. If you're backing the trailer at a fairly straight angle, you'll be fine. However if you're in a situation where you're cutting a sharp angle to maneuver into a tight spot it's best to disconnect the bars so the system isn't damaged if the trailer jackknifes. I've linked to a product description...

  • Could Unused Lower Section of Weight Distribution Shank be Cut off
    Yes if you wanted to cut off the bottom of the shank of your Reese weight distribution system part # RE94FR that isn't getting used it would have no affect on the higher holes of the shank that are currently being used.

  • Frame Bracket Height Max for Reese Weight Distribution System
    The frame brackets of the Reese weight distribution system part # RE94FR can fit frame heights of up to 8 inches. There isn't a minimum listed since you could always use a metal spacer to take up extra room as needed if the frame height was shorter than the minimum bolt spacing on the brackets.

  • Distance From Hitch Ball to Brackets Needed for Reese Weight Distribution System RE94FR
    I added a cut out for you showing the distance needed from the hitch ball to the brackets for the Reese Weight Distribution System # RE94FR. As you can see, that distance needs to be between 24-1/2" and 27-1/2" for this system. It has an 8,000 lb towing and 800 lb tongue weight capacity and is a really good option for an economical way to ensure you have a level towing set up. While it will keep you level, it doesn't have sway control, so if you want the added benefit of a more controlled...

    The sway stabilizer you need for the Reese Weight Distribution System w Shank - Round Bar - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW Item # RE94FR is going to be the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch Item # 83660.

I recommend the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch Item # 83660. You can add the friction sway control kit on each side. Keep in mind each kit does require drilling into the frame of the camper to mount the bracket.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 5000 lb Starcraft Launch Travel Trailer
    When the weight of the trailer gets to the point where it is greater than 50% of the weight of the vehicle towing it, we recommend using a weight distribution system. Since you have a camper which has tall sides on it that can act like a sail when buffeted by crosswinds or turbulence from passing traffic, you really should choose a system with an integrated sway control component. From the information you supplied (thanks for that, by the way), you're dealing with a maximum tongue weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer w/ 630lb Fully Loaded Tongue Weight
    To properly choose a weight distribution system, the first step is to determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the truck bed behind the rear axle. I've linked to an FAQ article that explains how to do this. These combined figures represent the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your set-up. The TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight distribution...
