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.

I had a weight distribution hitch with chains and a separate sway bar prior to this that I had kept from a previous trailer. Not having had to buy it myself, I didn't realize that there were different setups for different weights of trailers and I was probably not using the proper one. A friend recommended I look into a bar setup with the integrated sway control control like this one. I bought the correct one for the trailer I have. Pricing was great and had free shipping at the time. Came with great instructions and the tutorial online was really helpful. The only difficulty with setup was having the strong enough tools. With everything I had LT tires with a good load range, help from my mechanic for the ball installation, and a friend for the rest of the hitch, I'm now driving level, with much more stability and control on the road. 661539

Got to see some pretty sky and rocked myself almost to sleep. With the hitch you can almost forget you have the big behemoth of a trailer behind you! Very pleased with not only the price!!!

Unpacked and inspected. Not used as of this review, but really looking forward to it in the coming days. This hitch will handle anything I plan to upgrade to in the future. Owned a leveler hitch in the 70's - nothing like this. Package weight is significant - ~50 lbs. No tubular parts - all solid steel. Extremely adjustable. This is serious equipment, not plug and play. Read the manual!!! Well packaged, shipped fast. Only issue was from manufacturer related to quality. Pry handle has rubber grip that was sliced somehow prior to packaging. Not etrailer fault. Have done several transactions w/ etrailer.com. All transactions simple and smooth. Friendly and knowledgeable. 465414

I never had any problems with this WD System. Everything went together rather smoothly and it seems to work as intended. It is very heavy, received the product in the mail in it's original box which was tore up pretty good. They should have packaged the hitch better, like inside of another box at least. It seems the paint will eventually come off pretty easily , so touching it up with some spray paint will be in order to maintain the hitch from rusting. 250777


Comments
Ive only used the hitch a couple of times within a year of owning it. The tool that has the hook on the end that is used to lift the stabilizing bars onto the hitch bends way to easy, it needs to be made out of stronger or thicker medal. One of the metal latches that hold the stabilizer bars in the socket broke off. The weld that held the pin that holds the latch broke off. But other then that it still works.

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

  • Fastway Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2016 Honda Pilot Towing 3,000 lb Camper
    A 1,200 lb tongue weight weight distribution like the Fastway part # FA92-00-1200 is going to have a tongue weight range that's much too high for your towing setup as this has a range of 800 to 1,200. You'll likely have a very harsh ride which could potentially stress the hitch on your Pilot.

    For a travel trailer with an 8,600 lb GVWR, your loaded total tongue weight will be somewhere in the 1,000 lb range, and that's the number we'll use to get the right weight distribution system.

    I do have an option for you but none of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems like part # FA92-00-1200 come with a 2-1/2" shank. Therefore, the best option you have is to replace the shank with the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4900.

  • Fastway Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Unloaded Tongue Weight of 565 lb
    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. So your tongue weight could be...

  • Can 1,000 lb Fastway e2 Bars be Used with Head Unit for 800 lb System
    The Fastway e2 weight distribution (WD) 8,000 lb and 10,000 lb systems do use the same head units so you can easily use the 1,000 lb Trunnion Bars # FA92-01-1099 or 2 of the Rounds Bar # FA94-02-1099 with your current setup depending on which you have. I will say that if your trailer tongue weight is right at 1,000 lbs then you will want to take it up one more step if you have the trunnion bars and use the bars rated for 1,200 lb tongue weight # FA92-01-1299. This is because when it...

  • How to Determine Loaded Trailer Tongue Weight for Selecting Properly-Rated Trunnion Spring Bars
    A weight distribution hitch like the Fastway e2 system # FA92-00-1200 works over a range of trailer tongue weight (TW), usually a range of several hundred pounds. This particular system has an operating range of 800- to 1200-lbs of trailer tongue weight making it perfect for a total TW of about 1000-lbs. Based on the specs you mentioned if this is what you have it may well be over-rated for your trailer's actual loaded TW. Do please note that the weight of any cargo in the tow vehicle...

  • When to Upgrade the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    When choosing the best weight distribution system for your trailer you will want your total tongue weight (TTW) which is composed of the loaded ready to tow weight of the trailer by any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle to fall in the middle of the weight distribution system's capacity. This will allow for the most effective distribution of tongue weight and control of trailer sway. With a total tongue weight (TTW) of 992 lbs not including the water tank you plan to...

  • Recommended Fastway e2 Round Bars for 755 lb Trailer Tongue Weight.
    I recommend using the Replacement Round Spring Bar # FA94-02-1099 for your application because it gives you a tongue weight (TW) range of 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs. Please note that this range includes the loaded tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo that sits behind the rear axle of your trailer. If the 755 lbs of tongue weight you referenced is when the trailer is dry then you may consider upgrading your weight distribution (WD) system to a higher rating like the part #...

  • Comparison of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems for Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight
    Both the # FA94-00-1061 and the # FA92-00-1000 weight distribution systems are rated for 1,000 pounds of tongue weight which is a good choice for your trailer that has 800 pounds of tongue weight. The difference between the two is that the # FA92-00-1000 uses trunion spring bars and # FA94-00-1061 uses round spring bars. There isn't much advantage either way except trunion bars connect to the head by sliding directly into it and round bars come in from the bottom. The benefit is that...

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Recommended for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 7,000 Lb Trailer
    A weight distribution system is recommended if the gross trailer weight (GTW) of the trailer is more than 50% of the vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Therefore, yes I would recommend using a weight distribution system on your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 even though you already have a set of airbags. The reason for this is that not only will the system work to improve braking and handling, most of them have built-in sway control which is an extremely useful added bonus. Trailer...
