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.

Good product. Works as advertised. The weld radius on one side is not too clean, making it difficult to secure the riser bar with the 90-deg pin. 364255

Sturdy design, quality finish, able to setup and install myself. We have a four door Jeep Wrangler pulling a 17' foot pop up with 270 lbs. hitch weight. The Fastway e2 allows us to raise the ball height, level the vehicle, and provide stabilization. 728637

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. 608234

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. 563509

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. 893719

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. So having a lighter weight system is very helpful. No problems with semis whisking past on the interstate, or with wind, hills, or steep driveways. 814734

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). 572114

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


I ordered the WDH after trying towing with just a sway bar for our Honda Pilot - Airstream Sport22. Once setup the rig now tows level and is quite a bit more stable. The hitch is very well constructed and the directions were fairly easy to follow, I decided to flip the link plate even though the coupler was top mounted it was located at the bottom of the A -frame. Per the directions you will need to retorque the fasteners, I did this after a couple of short trips 10-25 miles. After an 825 mile trip only the angle set bolt needed a little more tightening. One thing to note, the hitch does include a bushing for a 1" ball shaft. 679839

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


Product was exactly has ordered. Instructions were very clear. I pull a 5000 lbs dry weight toy hauler which I expect to put about 2000 extra pounds of ATV, fuel, water, tools, etc.... on the trailer. My 2018 Chevy 1/2 ton Z71 was rated at 9700 lbs from the factory. My first pull of the trailer was 200 miles with only air bags on the truck. We bounced all the way home with the trailer. After installing the Fastway e2 Wt Dist w Sway Control we no longer have bouncing like before. I did however pull with air in the bags and with NO air in the bags. I feel the truck rode much better with air in the bags, but the best part is I had no bound with or without air in the bags. If I had bough the hitch first I would not have bought the air bags. 775004

The hitch was relatively easy to install once the ball got rolling, about 2 hours or so. Makes towing a breeze! Increased my connection clearance by 3"! Best part was the customer service provided by etrailer. Blew me away with attentive service due to a supply issue and was resolved with ease! I'd recommend this product to any towing person and that they purchase through etrailer. 263655

  • 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...

To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

  • Can You Back Up a Trailer with a Weight Distribution System Like Fastway e2 Engaged?
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0450 does allow backing up when installed. Many of the systems from various manufacturers allow this on the systems that don't simply utilize the hanger and chain style bars. The older style systems like that do not allow backing with the system installed because the bars will not track with the trailer frame in the same way. The friction sway control systems also do not allow backing up with the friction bar engaged...

  • What is the Difference Between 2 and 4 Point Sway Control

The Fastway and Equal-i-zer systems both have friction points on the frame brackets but the Equal-i-zer system also has friction points where the trunnion attaches inside the head. The added friction points are going to provide...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Arising V-nose Trailer
    Thanks for all the information. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0450 will be at the top of the capacity, so I recommend going with the 600 lbs # FA92-00-0600 instead. This will still allow for your 410 lb tongue weight and any additional cargo weight that may end up added to the trailer or the Jeep behind the rear axle as it is rated for 250-600 lbs.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 3,500-Lb Trailer

Based on the information you provided on your trailer, your tongue weight will probably fall between 350 and 525 lbs. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system you came from, part # FA92-00-0450,...

  • Can a Weight Distribution System Be Installed on a Trailer with a Side Mounted Trailer Jack
    That would depend on where the jack was located on the frame of the trailer. If it was installed between the coupler ball hole and 30 inches back from there it is going to interfere with the weight distribution system. If the jack can be moved back behind the spring bar brackets that would allow the WD system to install. Or if you could install the jack on the inside of the frame channels that would be an option as well.
