The Reese Pro Round Bar weight distribution system is designed to evenly distribute weight and reduce trailer sway for a smooth and comfortable ride. Includes a deep-drop shank and a preinstalled hitch ball.


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!

working fine
Alan - 01/16/2023


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.
Shawn - 01/01/2023


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.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 10/27/2022


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.


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.


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.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I have sent your information to our customer service team and they will be reaching out to you as soon as possible.
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 08/17/2022


Package came completely destroyed, when opened all the parts had damage on them making them look very used. Ontop of it all i was missing a piece im assuming fell out of the giant holes in the packaging. customer service was able to help me out some but wasn't able to get the part shipped overnight to get it setup over the weekend like planned.

I can tell you know that this is not how we want our products to arrive. I will definitely have this reviewed by our shipping department.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/15/2022


Had mine installed today. Drove great. Thanks

The hitch works great, no problems at a ll.

Still use it every trip I pull the trailer. No problems whatsoever! Good product thank you.
REX - 12/09/2022


It was not packaged correctly during shipment and got really dinged up. I am considering returning it as a lot of the protective coating has been compromised.

I am sorry to see that you have received a damaged item. I have sent this information over to our customer service department for them to get in contact with you for them to assist.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 07/25/2022




Box arrived all beat up and opened. Missing majority of bolts. Takes with customer service and they should be sending replacement parts. Hopefully they will be here before I go on my trip.


Lousy packaging. Box was torn open. Parts missing

Oh no! I will definitely have our customer service team reach out to you. We will have this taken care of.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 06/20/2022


Came missing parts due to very poor packaging. Missing instructions as well.

Thank you for reaching out as this is not how we expect the weight distribution system to arrive to you. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 08/02/2022


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.


Nice setup with good adjustments


The box was destroyed and was missing a part. I called customer service and they said they would send a replacement part and an email once sent. I have received confirmation yet.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/22/2022


Product was great. Shipping was horrible. Too heavy for a cardboard box. Came broken open with parts laying on porch


Great price. My local RV dealer couldn’t even come close to this price. Very happy and easy to install.


Great product. Great price. Great service! Thanks e-trailer! You are the best!


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.

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.
John F - 02/22/2021


Great service, questions answered quickly and shipped on time


1st package was not delivered by ups due to being damaged in transit. I called etrailer and told them about the issue. I had a new product within 3 business days and double boxed to make sure it got to me safe. Highly recommend


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.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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. I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well of both the Sway Control Kit # 83660 and...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Airstream RB16 Caravel Camper
    The most value for a weight distribution system that would work great for the weight of your Airstream RB16 Caravel would be the Reese Pro Round Bar kit part # RE94FR. This has a tongue weight rating of 400-800 lbs and also comes with a hitch ball so you wouldn't need anything else.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch For 2021 Starcraft Aluminum Ridge BH Travel Trailer
    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.

    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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Grand Design Imagine XLS 17MKE
    The Grand Design Imagine XLS 17MKE weighs in at 6,395 lbs fully loaded so for an appropriately sized weight distribution system, I recommend the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution part # RE94FR which is rated for up to 8,000 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.

  • 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.

  • Does Reese Products Weight Distribution Hitch RE94FR Have Built In Sway Control?
    I would be happy to clear this up for you! The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control # RE94FR you were looking at does have friction sway control built in to it so it does limit sway as it is. With that said its built in sway control is really limited to trailers with mild sway, so if your trailer has a decent amount of sway you would want to add some friction sway control # 83660 to help out. I recommend installing the system as is first and seeing how like it unless...

  • Recommended Inexpensive Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 6,000-7,000 Lb Trailer
    The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution System part # RE94FR is an excellent, cost effective option for a 6,000-7,000 lb trailer. It's rated up to 8,000 lbs so anything between this and 4,000 lbs will be perfect. It's a complete system with included hitch ball already pre-torqued. It also offers both weight distributing and sway control properties. Please note, for 2-1/2" trailer hitch applications you'll need a reducer like the Reese Titan Reducer Sleeve part # 58102.

  • Weight Distribution System on a 5,000 lbs 2022 Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSKX
    It looks like your 2022 Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSKX has a loaded weight of nearly 5,000 lbs. A weight distribution hitch is determined off of tongue weight which is somewhere around 10% - 15% of your trailer's total weight. With this in mind I recommend the Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control item # RE94FR. This system has a tongue weight range of 400 lbs - 800 lbs which would be perfect for your set up. This system has built in sway control and is a cost effective option.

Excessive wear in this area may indicate overload or inadequate lubrication. I recommend using The White Grease Hitch Ball Lube # 58117.

  • 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.

  • 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...
