Weight Distribution Diagram

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.

etrailer service is great and the customer service is awesome. The only gripe is the packaging and is not really etrailers fault. UPS ans Fed Ex beat the living daylights out of thier shipments. I am lucky to have all the parts and the hitch was scratched up pretty bad from the abused shipping. Maybe if the boxes were shrink wrapped they would hold up better in shipment. Very fast shipping and I will be using etrailer in the future!

etrailer had always been great to work with. When the package tracking hadn’t updated in a few days the CS at etrailer assured me everything was good. Sure enough that same day the tracker showed that my package was only 3 hours away and would be here the next day. The e2 hitch is really easy to set up and I’m very pleased with my purchase and would go through etrailer agin to purchase it.

Fantastic hitch but make sure you take some time to get it set up. I had to assemble/disassemble/reassemble it a few times to get it set up correctly. Also, I had to go to my local trailer shop to properly torque the hitch ball. Not only did I not have a 1 7/8" socket, but I couldn't torque it to 450ft lbs. Now that it is installed and dialed it it works great.

They work great. It took awhile to find a wrench big enough to install the 2 5/16in ball hitch and the parts associated with this system. I didn't have any sockets that size. But, after about two hours, everything was working great.

Love it! Easy to follow install instructions. Simple / quick hook up and removal. Fortunately we recieved all parts as the box was completely blown out upon arrival with bolts, washers, and trunnion bars falling out across my driveway.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


Installed the Fastway E2 hitch on an 2019 F150 to tow a 19 ft travel trailer (E-Pro 19FD) which has 480 ibs tongue weight, trailer loaded is about 3800 lbs. I towed a few trips without a WDH and there was an annoying "bounce" or teetering at the hitch point (on roads that were not perfectly smooth) and a small amount of sway at highway speeds. I Just finished testing and the hitch reduced the bounce and sway and improved overall handling. I did have a problem with the UPS delivery and Nicol T at etrailer immediately got it straightened out and I called customer support with an install question and they were also excellent. My truck already had the timbrem SES rear suspension kit and I needed to know if that changed the install process (since the bed of the truck will not go down once the bumpers is on the axel - about 1 inch). Anyone installing this hitch - watch the install video along with the instruction manual...


Comments
Excellent, I now have taken a few long trips towing the trailer, total 8000 miles. 90 of driving conditions are excellent. Highway driving when there is a lot of truck traffic, trailer is jumping around and swaying and you have to slow down to 60, which is dangerous with the trucks passing At 75..

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.


Comments
Still some movement from friction. Im hesitant to tighten it full, because The bolts feel soft and I dont want to risk stripping them on the road. I think Ill replace them with stronger bolts, then I wont have to worry about really tightening them.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


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

After a year in still quite happy with this kit. Towing has been straightforward and I dont feel like Im pulling a wheelie despite the heavy tongue weight. There is additional setup time but weve got it down such that its only a few minutes, and the benefits while driving are easily worth it.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


We have a 2018 Chevy Colorado and will be towing a 16’ Scamp trailer. After looking at all the applicable weights for this combination, combined with our checking in with other Scamp owners in two separate owner groups that we are belong to, we decided that we needed a WDH. This is my first experience with such a hitch and am about 3/4 of the way thru the installation process. From everything that I see so far, it is a very well made hitch. The fit/finish is good and the hardware is all there, the instructions are well written and easy to follow. In addition, Fastway has a comprehensive video on YT that further explains the process. I have yet to tow with it, so that will be the ultimate test. Should my opinions change, I will update my review. I would add that while this is my first hitch, it is my third purchase from etrailer in so many months. As with my first two purchase, this was a top-shelf experience with these people. I strongly recommend etrailer.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


Part of why I chose this hitch was because I have an 8.5 x 18 trailer with a V-nose, and this one would just fit, while some others wouldn't. I towed my trailer unloaded with and without the hitch and fully loaded with the hitch. I never had sway in any of the cases, but the weight distribution was absolutely necessary for the loaded trailer, and worked very well. It also gave me more confidence when towing. Pretty easy to set up once you get used to it, and it really leveled out my towing rig (and was required for the tongue weight I had). There are a couple of little pins that retain the spring bars in the hitch head that look pretty flimsy, but I didn't have any trouble with them after towing over 3000 miles. I am thinking about getting a couple extra just in case. e-trailer sells them, and they are pretty cheap. Make sure the friction pad on the bars are angled level with the L-brackets and lubricate where the spring bars go into the head. I ordered the pre-installed hitch ball, as I don't have a torque wrench that goes high enough to properly torque the hitch ball. Overall it's a solid setup and a must have if you have a significant tongue weight.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


Not sure if it was this alone, or this in combination with the roadmaster active suspension, but when I hooked it up to my new trailer that is 2000 lbs heavier, it towed like a dream. Very pleasantly surprised, and almost half of what the dealership wanted to charge me. Was skeptical of not going with a different brand, but so far no regrets at all. Easy to install as well.


Comments
Still working well. The only concern after a year is that the bolts that hold the side brackets on have loosened up a bit. I guess this is expected over time, but it almost seems as if they cannot be tightened enough to prevent a little bit of play.

Easy to install and use. I'm new to trailering, so I don't have much to compare this to, however the trailer doesn't sway, tows straight, and the weight distribution made ALL the difference in my towing capabilities and confidence.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


Things to know. Things noticed on first trip: 1. This unit is heavy. The hitch itself is probably 40 pounds. The swaw bars are probably 10-15 pounds each. 2. Unless you have some large wrenches and sockets, you may be getting this put together by a local shop. The hitch ball most assuredly will need to be put on by a shop or someone with a lot of heavy duty tools. 3. Taking measurements on the hitch and fender heights is easy. Making final adjustments can be a bit challenging. Just understand that adjusting the sway bar L brackets and the number of washers should come before moving the hitch up or down on the shank. 4. All but a few websites misstate what is happening with weight distribution. Weight is NOT being transferred to the front axle of the truck from the camper hitch. Weight is being reduced on the back axle of the truck, and is transferred to the tongue bars and I beams of the camper. This puts more (not all) hitch weight on the camper axle(s) and tires and less on the hitch. This, the truck resumes a level pitch. Imagine your arms are the friction bars. Hold them straight out stiff and press down on a table. Notice your body pushes up (like the hitch), and know the table is pressing harder to the ground. Your arms distribute Newton force on the table, and the Newton’s in your body are reduced. That’s weight distribution. This is important to understand when adjusting the system. And it plays into lowering or raising the L brackets, and adding or subtracting washers. Those washers may seem small, but they make a big difference near the friction point on the L brackets. There is a Goldilocks point of perfection with the system, and you will be making adjustments to perfect. Just be patient, and watch the latest trailer video on installation. And, review Newton’s Third Law, seriously, to understand how forces (Newtons) interchange. With regard to use, hitching is hitching. Snapping the sway bars into the locks is easy, just make sure they click in their receivers and are secure. I have to use the pry bar to raise them onto the L brackets. You’ll need some strength there, and keep your hands clear of pinch points. Taking the bars off is actually harder. I use a rubber mallet to get them off. Drove it on hills, over narrow bridges, around dunes and curvy roads, in a stiff wind, and in heavy traffic. Best ride ever. Camper stays true in direction. Truck and camper now ride flat, only 1/4” difference on front (well within instruction guidelines), and 1/2” down on back (again, within specs). Easy to back up, in fact made backing easier because, again, the camper direction stays true. Not noisy, but it hasn’t been wet yet. One important point: Since more weight is on the camper axle(s)!and tires, I would suggest a top of the line tire with full fiber reinforced walls, not just rubber walls. I installed GoodYear Endurance tires after a miserable blowout from a cheap Made in China tire that came with the camper. With the added weight, make sure you think the whole thing through.

Systems rated too low will not have enough tension to redistribute the trailer weight forward and systems rated too high for the actual tongue weight can result in jumpy or erratic handling.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 6000 lb GVWR Travel Trailer
    Actually, the Fastway e2 # FA92-00-1000 weight distribution system you'd looked at would be perfect for the travel trailer you described. It's compatible with trailers with tongue weights from 600-1000 lbs. Since your dry tongue weight is 500 lbs, that'll increase when you add the weight of gear in the travel trailer, water tanks, and propane tanks. You'll also want to add the weight of anything stowed in the truck bed behind the rear axle as tongue weight. Once all that's added up, you...

  • Can Curt 2-1/2-Inch Shank C17128 Be Used with Fastway Weight Distribution FA92-00-1000
    You can use a different brand of shank with a weight distribution system. Fortunately these parts are standardized for hole size and hole spacing which allows them to be swapped out when necessary. We cannot swap out components in the Fastway kit but you can certainly purchase and use the alternate shank. The Curt 2-1/2-inch shank # C17132 can be used with the Fastway weight distribution system # FA92-00-1000 if you want to avoid using a hitch reducer sleeve like # C45405.

Ideally this number falls comfortably within the operating range for the system you choose. If the 658 pound tongue weight you mentioned is with the trailer loaded I recommend taking a look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System # FA92-00-1000. The...

  • Which Fastway Weight Distribution for 2017 Rockwood Forest River Mini Lite 2509S
    Since picking out a weight distribution system should be based on the loaded tongue weight of the setup which also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle and your dry tongue weight is 709 lbs you'd want the higher rated part # FA92-00-1000 which has a tongue weight range of 600-1,000 lb. For a hitch ball you'd want the part # 63840 for a 2-5/16 inch size and then for a thin walled socket to install the ball # ALL643216.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Aluminum Trailer Carrying Various Weights
    Before you purchase a weight distribution you need to make sure the trailer manufacturer recommends using a system on the trailer.

To choose a correctly weighted system you need to find the tongue weight...

  • Will Upgrading to Higher Rated Spring Bars on Weight Distribution System Prevent Persistent Sway
    The type of sway you are describing is not going to be fixed with a weight distribution system.

You need to get the tongue weight of your trailer to be between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight and you'll see the persistent sway you are describing go away. Your 1,000 lb system would be ideal for your 875 lbs of tongue weight if that was the loaded tongue weight. If...

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Needed for a 2011 Nissan Armada
    According to the owner's manual for your 2011 Nissan Armada, if the gross trailer weight (GTW) of your trailer is more than 5,000 lbs then the use of weight distribution is recommended.

    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System 10,000 lbs. GTW and 1,000 lbs. TW # FA92-00-1000 will remove some tongue weight. However, every situation is different and this system could remove more or less weight depending on how your weight distribution system is set up and how much tongue weight you have.

  • Troubleshooting Sway Control Issue with Fastway e2 System
    The Fastway e2 system you have should not need any additional sway control and won't work with any additional bars. The biggest issue when you experience sway with a system like the # FA92-00-1000 is either an underrated system or a poorly adjusted system. An underrated system doesn't account for the total tongue weight which includes the loaded trailer tongue weight as well as any additional cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

  • Weight Distribution Needed for Towing a 5,600 lb Camper with a 2014 Ram 1500
    I believe the video you were referring to the linked video of the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-1033. Although the system is rated similarly to the Fastway e2 # FA92-00-1000 that you referenced, this video was shot more for demonstration purposes than anything. Personally I prefer the trunnion style bars like what you referenced as they have better ground clearance than the round bar systems. To determine the best Weight Distribution (WD) system for your towing setup you will first need to find...
