Is this right for you? Product Expert Lindsey S says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a lighter weight trailer with 400 lbs – 600 lbs of tongue weight that experiences sway from time to time
  • Want an affordable system that still provides excellent sway control
  • Don't want to have to go through the hassle of disconnecting anything to back your rig up or to tow in the rain

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
  • Have a van or low-riding car that requires more ground clearance than you can get with round bars
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.

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

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

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

The WDH is working out nicely, we have gone on 6 trips. I would recommend using it.

I was given this as a recommendation from an etrailer specialist. Worked as intended, although it was a little bit of a tough install. In particular I didn’t have all the tools to know that I had properly tighten the fittings to the recommended tension. I’ll probably need to take the completed setup to a local shop to confirm and make any adjustments. Overall the weight distribution has greatly changed the sag on the back of the vehicle. I’ll need to take on a trip before I can know if it will work with the surge brakes on my trailer. 828249

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for 2015 Shasta Airflite Trailer
    When choosing a weight distribution hitch, you're looking for one where the tongue weight falls towards the middle of the range of the prescribed range of the hitch. You should also take into consideration what the loaded tongue weight of your trailer is going to be, since it's going to change when it's fully loaded compared to the dry tongue weight. It should also be noted that when loaded, your tongue weight should be 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer. If your trailer is 3500-lbs...

  • Compatibility of Fastway e2 600 lb with 2020 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 8 224
    Yes. The 2020 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 8 224BH has a dry hitch weight of 440 lbs. Once loaded based on the current weights you will likely be under 600 lbs, so the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0600 is a great option and if you want more ground clearance use # FA92-00-0600 instead for the trunnion bars. Either use 2 inch ball # EQ91-00-6080 or 2-5/16 inch ball # EQ91-00-6100 along with the thin-walled socket # ALL643216.

Typically there is a second, higher towing capacity for a vehicle if they use a weight distribution system like the Fastway e2 part # FA94-00-0600 that you referenced. But that would be listed on the sticker of the hitch. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base...

  • Are Fastway Weight Distribution Systems Equalizer Hitches
    Yes and almost yes...a lot of people refer to weight distribution systems as "equalizer hitches" in the same way that people refer to bandages as Band-Aids. Equalizer is a very well-known brand of weight distribution system that people are so familiar with that some just refer to all weight distribution systems as equalizer hitches. Fastway weight distribution systems are made by the same company as Equal-i-Zer systems so they are almost an Equal-I-Zer in brand as well. They are the...

  • Would 1,000 lb Tongue Weight Rating for Weight Distribution Be Too High for 4,400 lb Trailer
    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. For your trailer that has a dry...

  • Weight Distribution System for 2011 Honda Odyssey
    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. In order to choose the best weight...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2011 Toyota Highlander and 2,800 Pound Trailer
    When choosing weight distribution you need to go by the total tongue weight. This is the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of your 2011 Toyota Highlander. I have linked a help article on determining tongue weight for you. If the dry hitch weight of the trailer is 370 pounds then the total tongue weight will likely easily exceed 400 pounds so the 400 to 600 pounds system # FA94-00-0600 is a great choice. But...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline and 2015 Summerland Mini
    When trying to decide on a proper weight distribution (WD) system for your towing rig, you will need to know the total tongue weight (TTW) of your set-up. The total tongue weight will be a fully loaded ready to tow trailer, plus any weight located behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. You want to use a system where your total tongue weight will fall in between the WD system's tongue weight range. I have attached an article that will explain how to find the TTW of your towing rig. Once...

  • Selecting Fastway Weight Distribution Shank for R-Pod 179 Trailer and 2016 Jeep Cherokee
    You can measure the height of your R-Pod's coupler to determine what amount of drop you need in a weight distribution shank. With the trailer level, measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The height difference between the coupler and the Cherokee's receiver is the amount of drop you need. I checked the R-Pod's specs but coupler height is not indicated. The shank in the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system # FA94-00-0600 has a maximum drop of 1-5/8-inches from top of hitch...
