Comparison of Reese Titan and B&W Heavy-Duty Class V Trailer Hitch Receivers


is there a hardware kit for the reese 45288 hitch... is there much difference between the bandw hitch and the reese 45288 looking for 1400lb tongue or more...2011 ram 2500 with oem hitch


Expert Reply:

Both the Reese Titan Trailer Hitch Receiver # 45288 and the B&W Heavy-Duty Trailer Hitch # BWHDRH25211 are Class V hitches. The B&W does have the tongue weight you're looking for at 1600 pounds, while the Reese is only 1200 pounds. However, if you use weight distribution the tongue weight increases to 1700 pounds. Both are custom fit to your 2011 Ram 2500 and may require some drilling to install. The Reese is a 2-1/2 inch receiver and the B&W is a 2 inch.

Although the Reese hitch is no longer available. The hardware is. Use part # RHK and put in the 45288 and choose Reese from the drop down to order.
