Works great. Fit on my Ice Castle tongue perfectly. 4 star rating because it does tend to come loose. 559939

The pole tongue adapter and Fastway E2 hitch work great together. Instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. I put it together following the basic setup and it didn't need much adjustment. I could recommend this setup for anyone. Our ice castle has a hydralic frame which you can use to hook the spring bars up. It greatly improved the ride, steering and handling of the rig. I also have a set of Air Lift 1000 in the rear (previously ordered from etrailer). They work great in conjunction with this hitch. And further add adjustability to the setup. 417096

Be careful - I ordered with a Reece equalizer hitch and it did not work with that so am sending that back to get an Equalizer brand hitch that it should work with - of course I will be out the cost of shipping which will not be cheap considering the weight of the equalizer hitch - a risk of ordering such a heavy item on line. Had to go to the hardware store to buy a bolt 1/2" longer to make it work on my boat hitch. I like that it does fit well between the spare tire mount and jack on my hitch. Have yet to receive the correct load equalizer hitch ("Equalizer" brand) so do not yet know how it will work with that. 255862

I purchased the equalizer pole tongue adaptor to attach to my 25' boat trailer enabling the ability to tow behind my F450 with 12' camper. I also purchased the equalizer hitch system.. Can't wait to get it all hooked up and try it out. Great product, quick delivery! 234769

Worked as I hoped. Used it on an aluminum I-beam boat trailer. I-beams covered the pole tounge. I drilled the outsides of the I-beams and through bolted the adapter on. The bolt slots in the adapter alow a lot of range in where u can put the bolts. PS etrailer videos are very helpful. Equalizer customer service was outstanding. Really helped with this unconventional install. 62585

Good product and easy to install. Would recommend that the verbiage in the installation steps are bulletized with only one step per bullet. This allows the installer to check steps off when complete and ensures a step isn't missed because the words are lost in a long paragraph. 456820

Performance is good but the product is rusted all over.

I recently purchased a pontoon boat with a pole tongue which made it impossible to use standard anti-sway bars. So I immediately went to another website, but they weren't able to deliver in time for when I needed it to pick the boat up. E-Trailer was able to deliver the adapter in 2 days. I know pulling the pontoon 400 miles would have been difficult without it. Thanks much. 544268

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 4,500 Pound V-Nose Trailer
  • Since you do not have any frame space on which to attach sway-control brackets, I do recommend going with the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 referenced in your question. This will let you mount the weight distribution system on your trailer tongue and can be positioned 27 to 32 inches back from the hitch ball. I have included an image that gives you a better idea as to how this will work. Then for the actual weight distribution system, we will first want to take an estimate...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Boat Trailer to Allow Use of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • Boat trailers that have a straight pole tongue (rather than an a-frame) can be used with WD systems by adding a pole tongue adapter that provides the necessary mounting points for the spring bar brackets. Equal-I-zer offers one made specifically for their systems, part # EQ95-01-5950. This will bolt onto trailer tongues up to 5-inches wide and up to 5-1/2-inches tall. You can use this so long as your trailer does NOT have a folding/hinged tongue.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Pole Tongue Trailer that Weighs 5,400 lbs
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. A system like this can be used with...

  • Does Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Allow for Backing Up?
  • Yes, you can back-up with the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution # HT32218 attached. This model may work for you so long as its tongue weight range of 800 lbs to 1,200 lbs is the right range for your needs. To determine this you will need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your F-250. The tongue weight is typically between 10% and 15% of your trailer's...

  • Recommended Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution Hitch for Ice Castle Fish House Trailer
  • For your Ice Castle Fish House, the weight of the unit will determine what Equal-I-zer system will work best. A weight distribution system is based on the total tongue weight of the loaded trailer along with any cargo weight behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Because these trailers are fairly good sized, I'll give you a recommendation for a larger system. You want that total tongue weight to fall in the middle of the range of the system for best results. For a total tongue weight...

  • Weight Distribution System for Snowmobile Trailer with Short Tongue
  • Weight distribution systems usually install such that their A-frame-mounted spring bar lift brackets are between 26 and 32-inches to the rear of the hitch ball. As an example, the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET, which works for trailer tongue weights from 600- to 1000-lbs, has brackets that need to be positioned between 27- and 32-inches from the hitch ball center. But we do offer the Curt Short Arm # C17332 which needs 28-inches. Trailers that have a straight pole...

  • Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Covered A-Frame
  • The Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ95-01-5950 is designed to be used on straight-tongue trailers and would not work with your a-frame trailer. Since you said that the tongue of your a-frame is covered by the nose of the trailer you will want to consider a system that uses chains and attaches directly to the sides of the frame rails rather than clamping around them. For this, I recommend the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control part...

  • Sway Bar Compatibility With Straight Tongue Trailer
  • The Curt Friction Sway Control for Weight Distribution Systems # 17200 cannot be used on a straight tongue trailer. Your best option would be to use a weight distribution system pole tongue adapter and then a weight distribution system with integrated sway control. I recommend the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ95-01-5950 and then the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion # FA92-00-0800 which is rated for total tongue...

  • Recommended Towing And Suspension Enhancement For 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • With a new vehicle you are doing the right thing in setting up everything to safely tow your boat. I can help you out with that. First I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75579. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Since you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also...

  • Best Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for a Tritoon Boat Trailer
  • In order to help prevent and reduce trailer sway while pulling your boat/trailer with your 2014 Ford Expedition you are going to want to use a weight distribution system with integrated sway control. In order to determine which unit is correct for you, you will need to find the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer and add that to any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The sum of these two figures will be what is referred to as total tongue weight (TTW). This...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Towing 6000-lb Boat Trailer
  • Thank you for the details about your loaded boat trailer's tongue weight. To match this 710-lb loaded TW and to allow you to back up the trailer I recommend the Equal-I-zer 4-Point system # EQ37100ET which works for a TW range from 600 to 1000-lbs. This setup comes complete with a shank and 2-5/16-inch hitch ball. I recommend a thin-wall socket like # ALL643216 for an easier time when installing the hitch ball. The 4-Point will both level your load and control sway. These systems...

  • Troubleshooting Pole Tongue Adapter #EQ95-01-5950 Fit Issue Due To Coupler Length and Brake Line
  • I checked with my tech contact at Equal-I-zer and the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 and they have not tested the adapter mounted upside down. They said they wouldn't recommend it because the entire weight of the system would be on that one bolt if it were installed on the underside. Instead, I recommend you use the Titan Hydraulic Brake Line with Fittings # T4890700 to go up and over your adapter. That flexible extension will allow you to mount the adapter at 32 inches and not...

  • Weight Distribution/Anti-Sway Setup for Tri-Toon Boat Trailer with Pole Tongue and Surge Coupler
  • Boat trailers tend to be light in the tongue (and heavy at the rear) and this can lead to more sway than with trailers that have a tongue weight in the ideal 12-14% range. Since your boat trailer has a pole tongue it will be necessary to add a pole tongue adapter like one of those shown on the linked page; these provide a mounting point for the weight distribution system's spring bar brackets. The key to picking out a WD system is knowing the total fully-loaded tongue weight (TW) of...

  • Is Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems Needed?
  • I checked out the install guide you referenced and while you do not necessarily have to use the pole tongue adapter with your Equal-i-zer # EQ37060ET, it will mean you have a single spring bar and you won't have the same capacity and sway control. We always recommend using the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 for to mount the L-brackets of your Equal-i-zer with a straight-tongue trailer to ensure you get the most out of your system.

Another option is the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems - 7,500 lbs GTW, 750 lbs TW # RP3280 which is compatible with many different systems that have sway control integrated.

  • Can Weight Distribution be Used with an Aluminum Frame I-Beam Trailer
  • So there's a couple issues you are going to run into. 99% of aluminum frame trailers can't have a weight distribution system used on them per the manufacturer of the trailer. You can try checking with the manufacturer but it's most likely not going to be recommended. Also Husky does not have a pole tongue adapter so if you wanted to use the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ95-01-5950 you'd have to use an Equal-I-Zer brand system like the part # EQ37100ET...

The largest option is the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW # RP58393, which will work only if your total tongue weight (loaded trailer tongue weight and any cargo behind rear axle of tow vehicle) is under that 1,400 lbs.

But since the trailer frame is aluminum you will need to check with the trailer manufacturer to make sure weight distribution is allowed. If it is then I have a solution for you. You will need to use Equal-I-zer pole tongue adapter # EQ95-01-5950 which can be mounted up to 32 inches back from the ball. But to get it to fit the 8 inch tall frame you will need to drill...

These adapters bolt on to the straight frame member to provide a substitute mounting point for the WD system's lift brackets. These adapters mount 29 to 30-inches back from the hitch ball. Note these carry different tongue weight ratings so be sure to select one based on your trailer's weight (TW). Selection of a WD system...
