View Full Version : Where to buy WD Hitch part

Apr. 11, 2011, 08:49 AM
Does anyone know where I can buy the shank and ball mount for a weight distribution hitch without buying an entire set? My old hitch's screws rusted into the hitch and it's not usable with my new trailer.

I got one used that I went to pick up. They weigh about 40-50 lbs, so I think ordering one would be very expensive to ship them.

I'd try a trailer or RV dealership that you can go pick it up.

Try etrailer.com. I ordered parts for an older Reese WD and they had free shipping.

I think we have 6" shank in the bin, I'd have to check. They're around 150 or so. If not, we can send you one in a few days. Let us know if you don't find one.

check with your local U-haul dealer..sometimes they spare odds and ends laying around. I have extra parts for my system that I got through a co-worker whose dad works there. Worth a try..

Thanks everyone! Etrailers has what I need. I was having a really hard time finding the ball mount that I need, and my local shop only wants to sell the whole kit.
