How To Determine Weight Distribution Hitch Fit for 2020 Forest River Wildwood XLite


2018 Dodge Ram 1500 with hemi towing a 2020 Forest River Wildwood XLite 17ft travel trailer. Will this Reese round bar weight distribution hitch work ok to tow this rig?


Expert Reply:

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.

Ideally you want your actual tongue weight to be somewhere in the middle of the range of the weight distribution system. The Reese Pro Round Bar Weight Distribution w Sway Control # RE44FR has a tongue weight range of 600-1,150 lbs. Assuming your tongue weight falls into this range then this system will work for you. If you find that your tongue weight is outside of this range I would be happy to help you find another system if you send me the information.

I have attached a helpful article on how to determine tongue weight along with some other articles on weight distribution for your reference.
