Shipping Box was torn up with torn holes in it. Many main parts were missing from the torn box. Had to reorder the parts. Even paid additional money for faster shipment but it still took over 2 days to ship replacement parts from back East warehouse to courier. Apparently top management has done very little to solve this continuing shipping\warehouse problems. These type of problems start at the TOP! Technical support,Nichole H, was very nice on the phone but she could do very little with etrailer's apparent problems. No Q/A apparently at shipping Dept.Very disappointed with etrailer's upper management!! I will upload photos in an update once I learn how to get pics from my Iphone to my PC.



by:

Unbelievably bad experience dealing with etrailer. The initial shipment didn't arrive until 3 days after it said it would arrive. They told me shipping dates aren't guaranteed, read the fine print (so why put a date on your website, why not be honest and say you have no idea when it will arrive?). The box had ripped open in transit because they put about 100 lbs of metal parts in a cardboard box without padding, so all the small parts fell out. It took 2 weeks to receive the second shipment. Despite telling them exactly what was missing, they sent the whole kit again, and the exact same thing happened. I now have two of all the large metal pieces, but still missing many of the nuts and bolts that hold it together. It is not worth trying to support non-Amazon retailers if this is what happens.



by:

Package arrived quite damaged. Description of the product never stated that the "weight carrying ball mount" is only 5000lbs

I can see that the box is in rough shape. If there is any damage to the system or any missing parts please let us know. Yes you are correct in that if you just use the ball with the weight distribution head then it is rated for 5,000 pounds however when used with the bars overall system is rated for 8,000 pounds.



by:

I can only rate this product based on the Reese brand, knowing it is going to work well. If I were to have to rate shipping, it would be one star. This box had two stops before destination and was destroyed. Not too happy that the paint is all scuffed and road rashes as well. should listen to everyone else having the exact issues with delivery



by:

Clip that was holding 1 of the bar up broke off after 1 trip. I was able to make a makeshift clip to replace it. Told etrailer I would be perfectly happy w it if they just give me a discount. But no they insist on sending a new head unit. Fine. Now the bolt wont come off, I have to make trips to Home depot to get tools. As of now even a power impact tool cannot remove the bolt, I'm not sure what to do. Very unhappy with Reese product. Very unhappy wiht etrailer solution. Will not be returning.

What can happen is that the bolts get over-tightened. When this happens you can first try a penetrating spray lubricant like PB Blaster onto the over-tightened nuts. You would spray on the lubricant and let it sit for an hour, then reapply and let it work some more. If this does not loosen the nuts then you can try heating the nuts with a torch to make them expand. Now, once you get the nuts off of the bolts, you will need to get replacement hardware from the manufacturer, I will be sending you their information via email.



by:

Worked perfectly for my Travel Trailer. Instructions were good and the hitch works well and is easy to operate. Shipped and received in timely manner. etrailer website was easy to use and ensured I got the right equipment and video was helpful for installation. Recommend you use etrailer and Reese

Product works perfect, couldnt be happier with this purchase and customer service.



by:

The product is working as expected and makes towing easier. I bought this product to tow a 27ft travel trailer and everything is well built and heavy duty. The install was ok with a tutorial I found on [online] by Reese .

My only issue is not with the product itself but with how it was shipped. The box was not heavy-duty enough to consider the weight of the product. The pieces are heavy and tore up the delivery box because of this I was missing a bolt and washer which was key to install. Although etrailer tried to fix the issue it was faster to go out and my local hardware store and buy the missing pieces.



by:

After all the reviews I thought maybe they figured it out to package the kit a bit better but NOPE here I am needing this in two days and it’s absolutely useless now! Box came destroyed. Missing spring Bar Covers and the two pins. Anger is an understatement, I’m on a tight timeline.

I can understand your frustration with the missing parts from the WD system. Customer service will be in touch to have the missing pieces shipped out.



by:

Shipping with UPS was terrible!!! Had to pick up from distribution center because they had beat the box to pieces. Luckily the parts take off list and instructions were still in the box and all parts were accounted for. Although most of the paint was rubbed off the receiver and tension bars before use it was easy to setup and install. Have yet to make a trip with them further than down the block to level parking lot.

Honestly this can happen despite our best effort to package them well. I recommend using a rust resistant paint like Rustoleum to touch up the system. I will also have our Customer Service team reach out to you.



by:

I have not installed the hitch yet but I've checked and all parts are there and everything is in good shape. Unfortunately the shipping box was pretty beat up and re-taped. And UPS delivered it to the wrong address. A neighbor called several hours after delivery was "confirmed." I was able to retrieve it in one piece. In addition the first one I ordered UPS took back even before it was delivered because the shipping box was coming apart. It seems that Reese should do some work on their packaging. etrailer was very responsive to the first issue and shipped out a new hitch the next day!

I don't know abut the quality of this hitch because I never received it from the seller. Apparently it was poorly packaged and the shipping box fell apart. I checked and this was a common issue from other buyers.



by:

Box was open also had wrong sized ball on hitch.

It sounds like the box had a rough trip for sure. This system comes with a two and five sixteenth ball. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. If your trailer coupler takes a two inch ball then I recommend part # A-90.



by:

Hope you don't have a problem. The hitch i ordered showed up in a mangled box and I had to order missing parts again, it happens, no big deal. The assembly required torturing down a nut that would not tighten but since I had already received parts from the factory (not my fault) they told me to go buy something at my local hardware store as they would not be helping any more. I did and got the hitch finished but will not be doing business with these people again.



by:

Product is fine, I believe Reese makes quality products. My problem is with your website. Put in the Camper/trailer you have and we will find the products that will work for you. This is the weight distribution setup recommended for my camper. Purchased it. 100% will work for me. Problem is the ball that comes with it is the wrong size for my camper. So had to purchase the right size ball as it was being installed. Will never trust your recommendations again. And not sure I will ever purchase from you again. So maybe take the time to research you products so people buy the correct items.



by:

How do they ship a box full of really heavy objects in a single ply cardboard box? The contents aren't individually wrapped or protected in any way, so they bang against each other, scraping the powder coating off. It looks like they were put in a parts tumbler. There was a 10"x10" section of the box almost completely gone, just being held on by a piece of tape. There was small parts just rolling around loose in the box so of course, there's parts missing. so now I have to sit on hold to get it fixed.

I tried to add more pictures of the damage to the parts, but they failed to upload.

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.

John F.

2/22/2021

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.



by:

Pulling a Keystone Passport Ultra Lite with my Tundra, this made towing so much more stable. It was a night and day difference!



by:

So far so good. budget a couple of hours for assembly and getting adjusted just right. Also, you'll need a 1" thin walled socket - if your impact socket set doubles as your large size hand-ratchet sockets, you'll find yourself unable to tighten the top bolt on the trailer brackets - it happened to me.



by:

I liked the fact that the hitch ball was pre installed. Unfortunately when I received the box one of the spring bars was missing and there was no hardware in the box. etrailer offered to send the parts that were missing, but I wouldn't have had them in time so I had to buy another WD hitch locally. Didn't like the fact I had to pay for return shipping when the order was shipped incomplete.

The hitch works great, no problems at a ll.

See what our Experts say about this Reese Weight Distribution Hitch

  • 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.

  • How Much Rise Does the Reese RE94FR Weight Distribution Have?
    To determine if you need rise, you will measure from the inside top of the receiver on your vehicle and then from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer. This should be done on as level a surface as possible. The difference will tell you how much rise, or drop, is needed. The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Round Bar - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW # RE94FR can have a maximum rise of up to 12 inches and should be able to cover you completely. The #...

  • 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.

  • Bracket Positioning for Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control
    The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control # RE94FR is designed for the mounting brackets to be positioned 24-1/2" - 27-1/2" back from center of coupler. If you're able to position the brackets about 1/2" closer to the hitch ball that gets you within the range needed for this system. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • 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.

  • How Easy Is It To Install the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution System
    It's very easy to install the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution part # RE94FR, it just takes a bit of time to go through the initial setup but then it will be much easier each time after. The hitch ball is already torqued down so all you really need to do is figure out where the frame brackets will mount on the trailer frame and what hitch head height settings to use. I have attached a copy of the installation instructions below as well so you can see the full write-up.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Palomino Solaire 185X
    Thank you for providing that information. It sounds like you have a 2020 Palomino Solaire 185X based on the GVWR and dry tongue weight of 444 lbs. The dry weight of this trailer is 4,134 lbs. Based on that information you're looking at approximately 600-800 lbs of tongue weight when fully loaded. When choosing a WDH tongue weight is the most important factor. You want your tongue weight to fall somewhere in the middle of the range of the system. Since the tongue weight range of the Reese...

  • What Does Reese Round Bar WD System Weigh
    The Reese Pro Round Bar WD system part # RE94FR that you referenced weighs right at 100 lbs, but you should note that the weight of a WD system does not count against the tongue weight of the hitch it is used on according to Reese and other WD manufacturers. The logic is that it becomes a part of the hitch basically so it does not affect it.

  • Can Reese Weight Distribution System # RE94FR Do Drop of 3 inches
    The shank of the Reese weight distribution system part # RE94FR that you referenced is capable of a drop of up to 6-3/4 inches so it would easily be able to handle the drop of 3 inches that you need.

  • Does Reese 49912 Weight Distribution System Provide Sway Control
    Long story short, the # RE94FR DOES provide sway control. The Reese 49912 Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution which we offer as part # RE94FR offers effective weight distribution for trailers with tongue weights ranging from 400-800 lbs and offers sway control that works great for resisting mild to moderate trailer sway.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2022 Jayco 22RB
    I wasn't able to find a 20RB from Jayco but I did find a 2022 Jayco 22RB which has a GVWR of 6,750 lbs so for a weight distribution system the Reese round bar kit part # RE94FR would be a great option that is rated properly.

  • Reese Pro Round Bar Recommendation for a 2022 Jayco Feather Micro 171BH
    You always want to base your weight distribution system (WDS) off of the GVWR as that's what the trailer will be when fully loaded, and really when you need the WDS the most. When I looked up your 2022 Jayco Feather Micro 171BH Jayco has it listed with a GVWR of 4,995 lbs. According to the 10% - 15% rule this means your loaded tongue weight needs to be 500 lbs - 750 lbs which matches better with the Reese Pro Round Bar 8K # RE94FR that has a tongue weight range of 400 lbs - 800 lbs. so...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2017 Rockwood Mini with 558 lb Tongue Weight
    For a round bar weight distribution system that would work really well with the tongue weight rating of the 2017 Rockwood Mini you mentioned the Reese part # RE34FR that you referenced and is a really solid choice. If that weight is the unloaded weight and it would end up being more than that when loaded the next size up is the part # RE94FR which has a range of 400-800 lbs.

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for Winnebago MicroMinni 2100BH
    The Reese Pro Round Bar weight distribution system would work great for your Winnebago Microminnie 2100BH but the part number you'd want is the # RE94FR which has a tongue weight range of 400 to 800 lbs which would work great for the weight of your trailer. Going with a system like the part # RE44FR which is rated much higher would give you a very harsh ride quality.

  • Which Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch For 5,000 lb Airstream Travel Trailer
    I think you'll need to go up a level in weight rating for your 5,000 lb GVWR Airstream travel trailer. The reason being the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE34FR is for loaded tongue weights between 200 lbs and 600 lbs. I assume the 520 lbs is the dry tongue weight, and generally tongue weight is 12-15 percent of a trailer's GVWR. If the 520 lbs is your loaded tongue weight the # RE34FR will work, but the option I know for sure will is the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution...

    The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution System part # RE94FR is rated for up to 800 lbs of tongue weight. If the tongue weight of the trailer is 750 lbs than this system would technically work but it does not leave much room for error or upgrading so I instead recommend the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution System part # RE44FR which is rated for up to 1,150 lbs of tongue weight.

    If the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your travel trailer is between 600 and 1150 lbs, the Reese 49913 system which we sell as part # RE44FR would be a good choice. I'll link to an article that explains a few different ways to determine your fully loaded trailer tongue weight.

This system will give you some room for error without being so much that it causes a stiff ride which is indeed an issue for an oversized system.

    Definitely a smart idea to make sure you're ordering the right part, and we can get you set up with the right Reese weight distribution hitch, but the correct one depends on the specific model of your 2021 Starcraft Autumn Ridge. Based on my research, there are two models of BH, the 19BH with a 4,450 lb GVWR, and 26BH, with a 6,500 lb GVWR.

  • Can Friction Sway Control be Added to Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution
    Yes, you can add friction sway control to your Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution # RE44FR, and Reese recommends this is exactly what you should do to improve the sway control (just keep in mind friction sway control cannot be used on trailers with surge brakes). For trailers that weigh between 6,000 lbs and 10,000 lbs you will need to use two friction sway control systems for the best performance, and for the best quality I recommend going with a system from Curt: - Curt Friction...
