Josh was very helpful when I discovered that UPS had done something that made my hitch undeliverable. He expedited the process to get a new one shipped out once UPS had done their investigation. It's a very solid construction, and I am looking forward to our inaugural trip with the new camper this weekend.


Boxes was delivered to wrong house. Was posted on Facebook looking to me for deliver to come get. Box was heavy and broken open. Packing tape was used to cover holes in box. Not sure if I am missing parts a bag of nuts and bolts were taped to outside of box. No paperwork for assembly. Printed them off web sight. Box was wet and put in mud puddle. Not impressed!!


Package came VERY damaged in shipping lots of nicks and dings, paint wear on product. Package said it was delivered but did not receive until next day.

Goodness me, it did have a time of it during the shipment. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. You can spray paint it with a rust resistant paint like Rustoleum.

This company has been CRAP. I ordered this hitch 8/25/22, it came missing 19 parts and the box was damaged and packed inside another box. I contacted etrailer and was working with someone for 1 month to get a replacement or the missing parts. When they stopped responding to me. I finally got another person to respond and I was told the original person no longer works for the company. I am starting the process all over.

They tell me this item comes from the manufacture and they can't provide parts; refunds; or shipping information for a return without the manufactures responding. The manufacture has not responded to etrailer in 2 months.



Do not buy. Packaging sucks. Cardboard box falls apart and can’t be delivered twice. etrailer is horrible on reshipment and returns. Total pain in the ass. Customer service is horrible, etrailer just kept passing me off to the next person. Had to order same product from [online] but they reinforced the boxing. Actual hitch is awesome, just order from a reputable dealer.


etrailer carries a great selection of “all things trailers”. Having built several trailers previously I wish I had known about this company earlier. The explanation for each item was thorough and helpful. The order and delivery were were expedited quickly. Communication was fantastic. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company to anyone looking for trailer parts and for construction of same.

Thank you etrailer!


The product is fine it’s the way the container was wrapped with cardboard and tape and literally fell apart in the back of the UPS truck the worst packaging I’ve ever seen for a product!


I received what looked like a returned package that was missing 2 very important parts. Initially,upon contacting etrailer I received a “thanks for contacting us” email but when I followed up I received a “don’t call us, we’ll call you” email. 3 weeks later, no parts, no contact, zero customer service. Useless item without all it’s parts.

I am sorry that your experience has been difficult. We are currently in our busy season, so our wait times for contact are a bit longer than usual. I do see that our customer service department is actively working to correct this issue with you.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 08/19/2022


I am very satisfied with the product and the timely manner that it was shipped to me. The only thing that wasn't good was the box the hitch was in when it arrived. Parts where missing so I could not finish the install.
Parts came a week later after.
Being the weight of the hitch, maybe put the hitch on a small pallet in a box might have help.


No nuts and bolts with package, very displeased. Teri was very helpful

That is disappointing to receive it without the hardware. Customer Service will be in touch to assist you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/17/2022


Just bought a new travel trailer and the dealer hooked this up to my truck/trailer. 60 mile ride home and it went very smooth. I haven't taken the truck/trailer off road yet but when I do I'll have extra peace of mind know the trailer weight is properly distributed and I have the anti-sway control. The dealer wanted to sell me one of their units that was exactly the same design but over twice as much money. Reese makes good quality towing products and I'm sure I'll be happy with this equipment.


Horrible experience. Bought hitch it arrives box destroyed and half parts missing. Returned it they shipped a replacement. Same thing box tore up. What do you expect when you ship a 100 pound hitch in a cardboard box? Very poor packaging


The box we received was torn and partially opened. All the bolts, pins are missing. This box was not a suitable grade box to ship this product.

Thank you for letting us know. I am sorry you got this hitch without all the pieces. I have already sent your information to our customer service team and they will be sending you the proper hardware that you need.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 01/25/2023


Horrible. My first order was lost and anew order was placed. When the new order came it had no instructions with it so I have no idea if I received all the parts to even assemble it properly. I also received a part that is not even used for a sway bar. And instructions for an unrelated part installation.

I can see that we ped the ball on this order. I will have have our customer service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 07/08/2022


Alright first off my review is based mainly off the packaging and delivery aspect. The weight it enough that it should NOT be packed in thin cardboard. My box was delivered after 3 attempts by UPS. The delivery driver rolled the box off his truck, already ripped out and full of holes. It was then drug thru my yard to my front door. I opened the package, which required no effort only to find everything scratched and all the hardware missing. Odd part is the hardware bags were inside but empty. I called etrailer immediately and spoke with Will. I explained it to him, emailed him pictures of the box and every part I actually received. He immediately told me to box it back up as best as I could and UPS would be picking it up and that they are sending me out a new one. Lets see how this goes as I have to drag a 36' travel trailer from ME to TX in 3 weeks.


We had great customer service. We went on our first trip pulling our camper and somehow a pin fell out and we lost a sway bar . Not sure if I am explaining the parts exactly what they are but I called in and spoke to Amy which went above her duties with nothing but pour niceness to help us . She was able to sent us another one with it having a time warranty and with one day shipping. After it was delivered to the campground she even sent a email letting me know it was delivered. She was very professional and followed through on everything she told me .


Works Great on my 20' trailer behind my truck camper using a 48" stinger. Super happy with it.


Easy installation, very happy with the quality of the Reese Anti-Sway hitch. Works great hauling our camper and took the sway out and we feel safer traveling now.


The packaging was awful. I had to go to my local UPS depot to pick it up, because they would not deliver it. The box was mangled and covered in packing tape. It was nowhere near sturdy enough to be shipping such a weighted material. All the pieces were loose and rolling around. I searched through as best I could to make sure that all the pieces were there. Hopefully when I go to put this together in the next day or so all the pieces are there.

This is definitely not how we expect to have the order to arrive to you. I will have our customer service team reach out to you to make sure everything is there.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/17/2022


Great product. Extremely excited to use it. Just installed it today. Helped level my trailer as well. I was nervous about all the parts being in the box. The box was tore to pieces upon delivery.


Great quality! Came 3 days after orderi ng


Bullshit packing most of hardware bags busted open sliding around in box


When I received my order the box had been torn open and missing the hardware contacted etrailer they sent new hardware. Great company to do business with


Packaged terribly. Everything is scratched up and missing hardware. I’m not happy I spent over $XXX on something that is in the condition that it arrived in.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention! I will share this with our shipping department and I will have our customer service team reach out to assist you.

Works as it should and took bounce out while pulling

  • 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.

  • Does Reese RE44FR Weight Distribution System Offer Sway Control
    The Reese # RE44FR would indeed offer weight distribution and sway control. The kit includes a 2-5/16 inch trailer ball and the adjustable weight distribution shank. The system is rated for trailers with a 600-1150 lb fully loaded tongue weight. You can see a product description video by clicking the provided link.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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; you'd...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Will Weight Distribution For 800 lb Tongue Weight Help Travel Trailer Porpoising
    So the Pro Series 58338 spring bars have been discontinued, and since you have bars that are not rated high enough, the best solution is a properly rated system. The general cause of porpoising is when there isn't enough weight distributed properly on the trailer, or the spring bars may not have enough tension. Since you have 750 lb rated spring bars and an 800 lb tongue weight, the system you have is likely not giving you enough tension so I recommend a correctly rated system for your...

    In order to find a weight distribution hitch for your 2020 Forest River Wildwood you will need to know your tongue weight. Tongue weight is the most important factor when it comes to determining the correct system. Tongue weight is typically 10-15% of your trailer weight.

  • Solutions On How To Fix Truck Experiencing Rake Using A Reese WDS
    Since you mentioned that you're only experiencing a little bit of sag on your truck with your Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control # RE44FR, I recommend adding another washer. Reason being, installing each washer will lower bracket end of spring bar approximately 1-1/2", which I feel would be more effective than raising the WD ball. If adding the extra washers do not help, before adjusting the ball mount height, I would also try to reduce the load on the spring bars...

  • Is A Weight Distribution System Needed To Pull My 6,000lb Trailer With My 2022 Ford F-350?
    Anytime a trailer's fully loaded weight is over 50% of the tow vehicles gross weight it is recommended to use a weight distribution system. I went ahead and found that your 2022 Ford F-350 has a GVWR range of 10,100lbs - 12,400lbs. If your trailer fully loaded is under 6,200lbs, then you don't technically need a WDS, but it wouldn't hurt to have one.

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.

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.

    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.
