Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Steel brackets do a good job of holding trailer in line to limit sway
  • Works with surge brakes and lets you back up without having to disconnect anything, unlike bar-style sway controls

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Steel-on-steel brackets can create a lot of noise, especially during turns
  • With no friction or tension built into the head, there's still the chance for sway, especially with larger trailers
  • Round bars don't allow for much clearance if your rig rides low
Two points of steel-on-steel friction work to prevent and correct trailer sway in this weight-distribution system. Sway-control brackets help to ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Adjustable shank included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Fastway.

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.

Video Transcript for Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Colorado

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Colorado, we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2-Point Sway Control, part number: FA94-00-0600. And that's gonna be for 6,000 pound gross trailer weight, along with a 600 pound tongue weight. It's also available with an 8,000 pound gross trailer weight and 800 pound tongue weight, using part number: FA94-00-0800. And also available with 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and 1,000 tongue weight, using part number:FA94-00-1000.Now, the way our weight distribution system is gonna work is, it's gonna take our tongue weight and it's gonna evenly distribute all that weight between the axle on our trailer and the axle on our truck. Now, this is gonna give us a stable ride, not only for our vehicle, but also for our trailer. Now, this is gonna allow for a smooth, level ride, and it's gonna allow us to tow the maximum capacity allowed by our vehicle's hitch.

Now, our weight distribution system is also gonna have sway control built into it. It's gonna have metal-to-metal contact, which is gonna create friction, causing less sway between our spring bar here, and the bracket attached to the frame. And that's gonna be real nice, because we're driving down the road and there's cross traffic, curvy roads, or any time we need to make an evasive maneuver, it's gonna keep our trailer in track with our vehicle in a nice line.We already talked about it having built-in sway control. Now, compared to the styles that use chains, those are gonna rely on a separate component that you're gonna have to install on your trailer to achieve that. Our system's also gonna come with an adjustable shank.

Now, in our position, we have it in the drop position, but you can also put it in the rise position to ensure that your trailer's gonna be nice and level when you're towing down the road. Now, the shank is gonna work with 2" by 2" receiver tube openings. Our weight distribution system is gonna feature our round bar style, opposed to the trunnion style, which makes it a little bit easier to install. And getting them in place or taking them out is simple. You just come to this spring clip here and we can pull out, and the bar will come right out.Compared to other weight distribution systems, our Fastway is gonna weigh about anywhere from 15-20 pounds less than others, which is gonna make installation just that little bit easier, and make it easier on your back.

Your system's even gonna come with a tool to help us get our spring bars in place so we don't have to fight them. Simply take the hook, hook it around the spring bar itself, and we can take this tab, put it in the hole, and rotate the bar up so we can get our spring bar in place. Now, what I really like about this weight distribution system is the fact that I don't have to drill into anything. Everything's gonna use brackets that are gonna sandwich in between the frame of our trailer, or it's gonna hook up into the hitch, and we're not gonna have to worry about welding or any kind of cutting.Our weight distribution system is gonna feature a steel construction, with a nice black powder coat finish to resist corrosion and rust. All the features that we've gone over so far are gonna apply to all three weight capacities of our Fastway e2 systems.

With everything hooked up, let's go ahead and take our truck and trailer and see how it handles. Once I pull it out I can tell you, I feel a difference. Going around the turn, it genuinely feels like the trailer wants to come back in line with my truck and track right behind it. And it genuinely just feels like it's a smaller trailer than it is, and just feels a lot more stable and safe.To begin our installation, you're gonna want to disconnect your truck and trailer, and you want to go ahead and pull out the ball-mount you've been using. Next thing we need to do is make sure that our trailer is sitting nice and level, and you can either take a tape measure or a level, and you want to make sure, front to back, that it's nice and level, and where it's gonna be towed at. You'll want to grab the head out of the packaging. Our kit's not gonna come with a ball, but you're gonna want to choose a ball that's gonna fit your coupler, and that's gonna have a long enough shank to go through so we can mount it. Now, with the ball loosely in place, we can go ahead and put the lock washer and nut on. Now we're gonna need to put the ball in the vise so we can tighten this nut down without it spinning. Now, in order to torque our nut down, you're gonna need a thin wall 1-7/8" socket so you can get it in between on the head here, and you're also gonna need a torque wrench that's capable of going up to about 450 pounds. So we're gonna go ahead and torque this. And if you don't have these tools available, I suggest you take it to a shop that can install the ball for you.Once you have your trailer level and the ball is mounted, you want to come up and you want to measure from the ground to the top of the coupler on your trailer. And you're gonna want to either write down that measurement or remember it. Now, every trailer's gonna be a little bit different, but you just want to make sure that it's nice and level, and you measure from the ground to the top of the coupler. Now, you're gonna want to take the adjustable shank and you're gonna put it into your hitch, and secure it with the pin and clip. If we look at the back of our head, we're gonna have a bolt on the bottom and a hole in the top right here. Now, we're gonna want to grab our spacer rivet, and we're gonna start with six spacer washers here. And we're gonna slide the washers onto the rivet, and then we're gonna slide the rivet into place. And we're gonna need to get the head in place on the shank, and you're gonna want to get that top of the ball as close to that measurement as you can, and then you're gonna see where the corresponding holes line up, and then we can get some hardware in place.Now, the way we're gonna be attaching the head to our shank here, is gonna be with this 3/4" bolt and a conical tooth washer. You're gonna want to slide the washer onto the bolt, making sure that the teeth are just gonna face the channel right here. So once you figure out where it needs to sit . in our application we're gonna be using the second hole from the top. So we can take our bolt, slide it through, and it'll help support it a little bit. Now, once the bolt's through, we're gonna take another one of our conical tooth washers, slide it over the bolt, and then secure it with a lock nut. And we're gonna repeat that process for the bottom hole, wherever it may line up.At this point, we're gonna want to snug up our bolts. We don't want to tighten them down all the way, just hand tight a little bit snug. So I'm gonna come back with an 1-1/8" socket for the bolt head, and then 1-1/16" wrench to hold the nut on the other side. The bolt at the bottom of our head here, we're gonna grab a 15/16" socket, and we're gonna tighten it up until it makes contact with the shank. But also, we're gonna tighten it up until that rivet with the spacers is also making solid contact, as well. Now, once that rivet is making solid contact with the shank, we're gonna want to turn that bolt one more half turn.We're gonna have to take a few measurements along the frame and the tongue of our trailer here, so I'm gonna go ahead and remove the cover for my tanks just to make it a little bit easier to see what I'm doing. From the center of our coupler, we're gonna go along the frame here, and we're gonna measure out to 27", and then we're gonna mark a spot on our frame on both sides. Now, every trailer's a little bit different, but where we had that 27" mark, it was gonna interfere with our gas tanks here. So we removed the gas tanks and just moved the tray forward with the self-tapping screws. You need to determine if your coupler is top-mounted or bottom-mounted. And what I mean by that, the coupler on here is mounted to the top of the frame; it's gonna determine how you mount your sway bracket assembly.So we can go back to that 27" mark now. We'll go ahead and grab our link brackets here, and the one with the two studs, that's gonna be on the outside of our frame here. And we're gonna put it against our frame, and the edge of it should be lined up with that 27" mark. Now, you want to make sure that the L with the studs coming out are going towards the outside of the frame, and are towards the top of the frame. And you want that single hole at the top. So we can grab our other bracket, and you want to watch for any electrical lines or anything else that's on the inside of the frame there.And then we can take our 1/2" by 4" bolt, and we're gonna slide it through both brackets. With the bolt through, we're gonna come back with a lock washer, slide it over our bolt, and secure it down with a nut. We're gonna take another one of our 1/2" by 4" bolts, and we're gonna want to go through the hole closest to the frame of our trailer. So if you can't get it through the hole, or if it's just half of a hole, you're gonna want to use the next available one. Just stay as close as you can. And we're gonna be securing it with the same hardware; a lock washer, followed by a nut. You're gonna want to make sure that the edge of your plate is right at the edge of that 27" mark that we made, and you're gonna want to have the two brackets laying flat against the trailer frame, and you're gonna tighten down those nuts hand-tight for right now. And we'll repeat that for the other side, as well.We're gonna come back with a 3/4" socket and wrench, and I'm gonna start tightening up my bolts. Now, when you're tightening these up, you want to tighten them up a little bit, and then alternate to the other bolt so that it doesn't start bowing out or getting bound up. Now, we're gonna get these nice can snug, and you're gonna want to come back with a torque wrench. We're gonna torque down our bolt to the specified amount in the instructions. And again, you want to go back and forth, alternating between the two, so you don't get a weird bind or a bow in your plates. We'll go ahead and tighten and torque the other side, as well. So, we're gonna grab our L bracket, and initially we're gonna set it up, we're gonna leave two holes at the top. So we're gonna slide those studs through our L bracket, and we'll secure it down with some nylon lock nuts. And we'll go ahead and put the other one on the other side. I'm gonna come back with a 3/4" socket and snug up the nylon lock nuts. I just want to mention, we don't want to tighten them up all the way, we just want them nice and snug. We'll snug up the other ones too.We're gonna need to put our spring arms in place, but before we put them in, we're just gonna take a little bit of grease and just put a thin layer around the notched end that's gonna be going into the head. Then we're gonna take that notched end, and if we come to the bottom of our head, we're gonna push it into place. And we'll see that it locks in and it won't come out unless we pull on the release tab. Now, we're gonna put the other arm in place, as well. At this point, you're gonna want to back your truck up, and hook up to the trailer. You want to lower the tongue onto the ball, and until the jack is coming up off, and make sure that's locked into place.Once we have our trailer coupled to our truck, we're gonna take our spring arms and we're gonna get them on top of our L brackets here. Now, if you've reached the top of your jack, and you don't have anymore room to lift it, they're gonna give you a tool that comes in our kit. We're gonna be putting that right in that square hole, and we're gonna take our spring arm and put it in the pocket. And then we can lift upwards. And once it's sitting there, we're gonna take our L-shaped pins, slide them down to the square hole, then secure it with a clip. And you're gonna do that on both sides. Now you're gonna go ahead and lower the jack back down so your trailer is back on the weight of your hitch, and you're gonna want to look and see that you have a minimum of 3" on your spring bar here to the L bracket.Now with the weight distribution installed, we're gonna need to make sure that it's adjusted properly. Now, you're gonna want to uncouple your trailer from your truck, and you're gonna want to take the measurement from the ground to the inside top edge of the thunder well here. After you have that measurement, you're gonna hook up to your trailer with the weight distribution in place, and you're gonna take that measurement again. Now if it's too little and the front end is coming up, we're gonna need to adjust it. But if it's pushing it down, we're also gonna have to make some adjustments. The second measurement after we have it hooked up, you're gonna want it to be as close as possible to that original height measurement. And if you are, you're ready to go.Now, after our initial setup, we found that we do need to make a little bit of an adjustment, because it's pushing the front of our vehicle down. And if we look at our spring bar here, it's kind of slanted up, and we want that nice and parallel with the frame on our trailer. So we're gonna be loosening these bolts, taking the spring bar off, and then moving this down. If your spring bar is sitting nice and parallel, or you just need a little bit of adjustment, we're gonna go to the back of the head and you're gonna need to remove the bolts and uncouple the trailer. And you're gonna be removing the spacer washers from the back here. And then you're gonna want to hook everything back up and remeasure and check everything.Once you have your weight distribution set up the way you want it, your front measurement and your fender is back to original height, and the tongue on your trailer is sitting nice and level, we can go ahead and take everything back apart one more time and do our final tightening. So I'm gonna come back to our brackets holding our L brackets in place, and tighten down the bolts and torque them to specification that we're gonna find in our instructions. And we're gonna do that for both sides. Finally, we can come back to our two 3/4" bolts coming though our shank, and we can tighten that up using a 1-1/8" socket and holding the nut on the back with a 1-1/16" wrench. We're gonna repeat that for the remaining bolt, as well. With everything torqued down, we can re hook up our trailer and put our spring bars and everything else back into place.And that'll finish up our look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System with 2-Point Sway Control, on our 2017 Chevrolet Colorado.

The solution to dangerous issues. This system resolved many of my towing issues. I tow a food trailer. The hitch sagged and the lowered hitch raised the front end of my SUV. I also experienced sway and buffeting when tractor-trailers passed. Windy, wet nights and big trucks were white-knuckle drives. NO MORE. Nobody does it better than etrailer! They answer their phone! They are truly knowledgeable about their products and care about their clients. My first call directed me to my precise options. I ordered it on-line and it arrived a day ahead of schedule. I watched their exceptional installation video three times before attempting installation. This is what sets ET apart. They did not have one video - they had two - one for a truck and one for an SUV / VAN. What was not covered in the videos was only a call away. PAY ATTENTION HERE: The rig uses a set of stacked-washers to adjust the "angle" of the hitch ball. The more washers you use - the greater the angle and the higher the tension of the torsion bar. If you begin with too many washers, you may find that after you use the provided torsion bar installer (a variant on a crow-bar) to install your torsion/control-bars. YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET THE BARS BACK OFF! That was my case. And if you cannot get the bars off - you cannot remove the tow vehicle. I had no idea how to release all of that pressure without potentially hurting myself. Ugh. ONE CALL - THAT'S ALL! A quick call to ET. The rep understood my problem but he also understood that mine was a dangerous issue and sought additional help internally. He came back with "...this is going to sound odd but trust me. Chock your wheels. Raise your tow vehicle from the center of the tow bar until you raise your rear wheels off of the ground and until you can move the bars manually (a light tap with a hammer is a good indicator as to whether you have relieved enough pressure by raising the tow vehicle). When you can swing the bars manually - swing them out and away from the trailer and if you swing them far enough toward the tow vehicle, they will simply fall out of their socket. (There is also a release tab you can pull out - but I prefer this method.) It WORKED! Adjusting this type of system can be an arduous task that is well worth the effort and no company does a better job of selling, educating and servicing than ET. My local tow shop wanted to install a "chain" system without sway control and when I asked him what he thought of the "bar" systems - he said, "...hmm, I've never seen those before". Go with the experts and your own mechanical expertise. ET has your back. 593977

Great sway control for 3500# travel trailer towed behind full-size pickup truck. Easy to install if you have the right tools. Does not come with a hitch ball, you can purchase the right size for a reasonable price that fits your trailer. The bars do creak when you are parking but I suppose I could grease them (where they attach to the trailer) but that could get messy during disassembly. I have had to tighten the bolts a few times, but that is expected after a bunch of miles of towing. 635215

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

Never had a Weight Distribution/Sway bar before, so this is our first experience. We have a 20ft Winnie Drop (Winnebago) that starts to sway around 55mph. Instructions were easy to follow and everything was done in a little over an hour. The tool provided to insert the sway bars is needed and it takes someone strong to lift them into place. That was the hardest part of the installation. Our first test run around town required some adjustment, but second test run was great. We feel pleased with the product and confident that our future camping adventures are going to be safe ones. 289618

Item was suggest to me but, the etrailer salesperson never bothered to explain the I needed a thin wall 1-7/8" socket to install the hitch ball. This socket costs an extra $50 from etrailer and more from others. I had to modify my socket (which was expensive but not $50+) in order to install the ball. I feel I should have been informed of this issue before. 414198

Hitch has been a great help with sway and bounce. Its made towing a lot more comfortable. I only wish I was told about the tight fit for the hitch ball nut access

I have about 3000 towing miles on the Fastway and have to say it has made all of the difference. Before I used and regular hitch with an anti-sway bar. This hitch is so much better than that setup. You can backup with it and, with the right tools make slight changes at the campsite. Never a hint of sway in wind, rain and some of the worst traveling conditions I have been in. 70mph fully loaded, no problem. I will say this hitch is very noisy. Pull into a campground late at night and you will wake people up, but its ability to pull easily outweighs that minor issue. 504999

I purchased a 2018 Coachman Apex Nano 17X with a max of 6,000 lb. trailer weight. I pull the trailer with a 2018 Chevy Silverado 4x4 1/2T crewcab. I did a internet search for a weight distribution with sway control when I ran across etrailer.com. Viewing the information on the Fastway e2 weight distribution w/2 point sway control I found this system to easy to install and use instead of the chain systems. I purchase the 600 lb. system, it was easy to install and its easy to use. This system does a great job distributing weight between my truck and trailer and works nicely with trailer sway. I would recommend this system over a chain system. 525715

I installed the Fastwaye 2600 lb. on a Chev. Colorado for a R-Pod trailer that weighs 2900 lbs unloaded. I only used one washer for minimum weight distribution. I hauled the trailer 1,500 miles back home without weight distribution and just took it on a 400 + mile trip with the new Fastway. There is a nice noticeable improvement in less trailer sway especially in cross winds and when traveling 65 mph on the freeway. The installation was straight forward and we're very please with the quality of the hitch. 390434

This product has performed flawlessly. It just does what it was designed to do. The adjustability is very nice to fine tune the vehicle stance. Seems like the capacity of this unit was perfect for our Jeep Unlimited and 3200 lb. pop-up camper. The folks here at etrailer won’t steer ya wrong. 625276

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
    A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • 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 Should Sway Control be Used with a Weight Distribution System
    First of all, thank you for your service. If is recommended to use a weight distribution (WD) system and sway control if your trailer weighs at least half of the weight of the tow vehicle. On bigger pickups you could probably get away without needing either but since you are using a 2007 Chevy Colorado I do recommend with having a device to combat rear sag in your pickup and trailer sway. Unless you will be making a really sharp turn to park your trailer you should be able to use...

  • Choosing Between A Fastway Weight Distribution System With Round Bars Or Trunnion Bars
    One of the major differences between a round bar system and a Trunnion bar system is if ground clearance is an issue, you may be better off choosing a Trunnion-bar system simply because these bars slide into the weight distribution head instead of inserting into it from the bottom, thus maintaining a more streamline system.The round-style spring bars slide up into the head and are held in place with clips. The round bar on # FA94-00-0600 extends about 2-1/2 inches below the weight distribution...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 6,000 Pound Trailer
    When looking for a properly rated weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your towing setup. This number includes both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (as if loaded and ready for a trip), along with any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Ideally, this number will fall somewhere near the middle of the operating range for the system you choose. Using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline...

  • Longer Shank for Fastway Weight Distribution Systems To Open Tailgate

  • Selecting Weight Distribution Hitch for 4400-lb Travel Trailer Towed by 2012 Chevrolet Silverado
    We can help you choose a correctly-rated weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) hitch setup for your Silverado that will be towing a 4400-lb loaded 21-foot travel trailer. The right way to choose a system is to load your trailer for a trip, with all your usual gear and supplies in place, and to measure the actual loaded trailer tongue weight (TW). Sherline Scale # 5780 makes this process easy and easily repeatable. Plus, using the scale regularly means that over time you will learn...

  • Can FastWay Weight Distribution be Used on Foldaway Coupler with Surge Brakes
    I have spoken with one of my contacts at Fastway, and have been told that weight distribution can be used with a folding trailer coupler. I am assuming that you have a pole tongue trailer, so a pole tongue adapter would be necessary. The adapter would typically be installed approximately 30 inches to the rear of the coupler, if the hinged portion of the folding tongue would not interfere with the adapter, you should not have a problem. If you are interested in part # FA94-00-0600, part...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System on 2006 Toyota Sequoia
    A weight distribution system is recommended anytime your trailer weight is more than 50 percent of your tow vehicle's weight. With a 2300 lb. trailer, and your 2006 Toyota Sequoia, you're under that but not by much. Especially, if you have anything in the R-pod. With that being the case I recommend a weight distribution system with sway control. To determine the correct system, we need to determine your total tongue weight, which is the tongue weight of the loaded and ready to tow...

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 4500-lb Trailer Towed by 2012 Nissan Pathfinder
    Weight distribution/sway control systems are best selected based on your actual fully-loaded trailer tongue weight (TW). A scale like # 5780 really makes it easy to accurately and frequently check your fully-loaded trailer TW to ensure it is loaded to provide the correct 12- to 14-percent TW relative to gross weight. As these systems are weight-sensitive this really matters. The total TW of the system consists of the actual measured TW of the loaded trailer plus the weight of any cargo...

  • Troubleshooting Fastway Weight Distribution System Bounce When Towing
    The Timbren system might actually cause the bounce to increase since it will push the suspension back up harder. Typically WD system bounce is due to using a weight distribution system that is rated too high for the tongue weight of the trailer. You didn't mention what system you have but the correct one for a 4,800 lb trailer would be the part # FA94-00-0600 which has a tongue weight range of 400-600 lbs. If you have a higher rated round bar setup you could swap the bars of it to the...

    I took a look at the owners manual for your 2011 Honda Odyssey and it states that the maximum total trailer weight for your vehicle, with the ATF cooler installed and two passengers, is 3,500 lbs which you'll want to keep in mind. As for a weight distribution system, the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0600 has a total tongue weight capacity with a range between 400 lbs and 600 lbs and would likely not be the correct system for a dry tongue weight of 550 lbs.

    There really isn't a great way to prevent rust on brackets of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round # FA94-00-0600.
