Aren't all hitches weight distribution,of some degree ??
No, though most of the ones you see hauling RV travel trailers will be. Some examples of hitches that are not WD include the built-in ball mounts in pickup truck bumpers and the Class 1 & 2 hitches found on SUVs and some sedans.

Is a Hensley hitch a weight distribution hitch ?
Yes. The Hensley & Propride hitches include both WD and anti-sway.

Has anyone ever reinforced the hitch on a travel trailer ?

YES. I replaced the hitch coupler the old one was 1 7/8 and the new 2 or 2.5" (Forget which) that was back in my trailer days (like before 2000) the original hitch broke and I originally bolted the new one on then had it welded on.
