No, if you:

  • Have a significant amount of sway on a regular basis and need something that can really hold your trailer in line
  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.


Fastway e2 Sway Control

The two points of sway control within the e2 are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. Most traditional weight-distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system.


The direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the e2 system helps to stop sway once it has begun. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the e2 uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway-control system.

I have a very small and light trailer (GAWR 2950 lbs.) so finding the right weight distribution system was a challenge. There were only one or two available. I think I chose this one because it had sway control as part of the WD design and does not have to be disconnected in order to back up. It has worked well for me on 2000 mile and 7000 mile trips. There is one thing however that came up. On two or three occasions, I found after a day of travel that the brackets that attach to the trailer frame had been pulled forward or pushed backward by the friction of the spring bars. I finally realized that when attaching or repositioning them, the bolts need to be much tighter that I originally thought was sufficient to secure them and resist movement. so keep that in mind.

Bought this primarily because it was much closer in load rating to my needs than the much heavier duty units mostly available. I'm pulling an Aliner with relatively high tongue weight (for that class) behind a lifted Jeep. Without a leveler the Jeep was nose-up by an inch under load, exacerbated by a slight noise up stance unloaded. Set it up yesterday and it went smoothly. Preliminary verdict is that it does level the jeep, back to within a 1/4" of the unloaded stance. Have yet to really put to the test with a fully loaded camping trip, so some adjustment may be necessary, but this is surely an improvement. The anti sway benefits are yet to be seen. My preliminary trip from VA to TX before I installed any leveler or anti-sway did not show any real evidence of sway, and just by design I expect this kit to improve stability. No issue with backing was noticed with this unit installed. Reasons for four and not five stars: - torque ratings for all bolts are not provided with the kit. Notably missing are for the bolts that clamp to the trailer frame. Instructions reference proper use of a torque wrench in this section but don't provide a target - price is substantially higher than for some heavier kits

I have used this hitch on two different tow vehicles with excellent results for the last year. The hitch was very easy to install on a enclosed utility trailer by following the manufacturer's directions and viewing the etrailer videos. I have used this hitch on both vehicles with widely varying loads on the trailer. The adjustments are very easy to make. I use a tongue weight scale to make sure the load is distributed such that I get a tongue weight that is 10% to 15% of the trailer weight. My average trip with this hitch and the trailer is 900 miles.

Awesome item! After following the set-up video we have had no issues with this WD set-up. I have to look in the rearview mirror to know the camper is behind me! This set up keeps the camper tracking true and straight on the road, I hardly notice when big rigs pass by and being able to back the camper without having to disconnect anything is awesome. My wife and I hook up the camper with this system quite easily! Highly recommend!

The 450 WD sway control has worked well on my Honda Odyssey this past year, for pulling 2000 lb 17 ft trailer. The Odyssey has a soft, low suspension.

Just finished installation of the Fastway WDH on my Rpod 180 (approx 3200 lbs loaded) with my TV, Lexus RX350! I had a mechanic/camping friend do the installation. Pleased with everything so far - did a test ride and definitely feel (I think) a difference, TV feels more solid, not as bouncy and had zero sway when the tractor trailer passed us on the highway. I had numerous people in the camping/RV industry tell me I don't need a WDH but after extensive research, I think this will make a huge difference on towability and safety. I'm going to finish my analysis with another trip to the scales. Customer support at etrailer was awesome, great service, answered questions and very helpful.

Installed on a T&B camper trailer being towed by a Mazda CX5. Is a fairly straightforward install as long as you follow the well-written directions carefully. Being slow and methodical it took me all afternoon. On a test drive it seems to tow well. Note that the removable hitch is fairly heavy (weight-wise) and requires some creativity on where and how to store it when not in use (I keep it in the trailer or the house, not in the car).

  • E2 trailer hitch for 19ft Sol Rover
    In order to choose the best weight distribution system, you will want to factor in the total tongue weight of your towing setup. That's both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer and any added cargo coming from behind the rear axle of your truck (any gear that may be in the bed). Ideally you want the tongue weight to be in the middle of the operating range for the weight distribution system. Using the 3900 lbs GVWR of the trailer, the tongue weight should fall between 390 - 585 lbs,...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2000 GMC Yukon XL Towing a 3,500 Pound Trailer
    SUVs such as your 2000 GMC Yukon XL tend to have a softer rear suspension than trucks for the comfort of passengers. It doesn't take much to compress that suspension so you could experience some squat at the back. The general rule with weight distribution is that if the trailer when loaded and ready to tow weighs at least 50 percent of the vehicle weight then it is a good idea to use weight distribution. The curb weight of a 2000 Yukon XL is in the neighborhood of 4,700 pounds to 5,200...
