Weight Distribution System on a 5,000 lbs 2022 Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSKX  


Ill be pulling a 2022 Forest River Salem FSX 178BHSKX travel trailer dry weight 3,749 lbs and 22foot long - hitch weight 430 lbs with my 2015 Chevy Suburban LTZ. What weight distribution/ sway control hitch is recommended? Hopefully cost effect


Expert Reply:

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.
