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

Yes, if you:

  • Have a trailer with 400 lbs – 800 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.

Quick delivery and excellent customer service! I ordered this to tow a travel trailer with my 2007 Tahoe. Works great!


Comments
After using this hitch for over a year, I wish I had researched it a little more. Due to the cheese grater they call Oklahoma roads, the bounce created is immense. Believe it or not, right there in the owners manual it says the hitch is not meant for bumpy roads or off road conditions. I believe next time I purchase a hitch, either when this one wears out completely or i purchase a new tow vehicle, I will be looking at the Andersen weight distribution hitch, as it is meant to control bounce and sway. etrailer, of course, was and still is an amazing company.

Easy to install, set up, and works beautifully every time. Truck drives better and feels more solid/grounded fully loaded with this system than it does alone (even better than pulling the old pop-up trailer)! Never get that push/pull of the trailer again! During initial installation, I didn't have a loaded trailer or truck, so made some educated guesses on bracket and hitch heights. Took 1.5hrs doing it myself (including taking measurements, etc). On our first camping trip, with the trailer fully loaded and all 6 people and gear in the truck, I needed to raise the tongue brackets one hole, which took 10min. Since then it has never needed adjustment and every time I use it I'm thankful for how easy it is to set up and dead useful it is. Lastly, the included shank was too short for my truck/trailer combo (needed an additional 1" of drop), so purchased a longer one at the same time. ********* 2007 Ford Expedition EL Eddie Bauer 4WD pulling a 2004 21' R-Vision Trail-Lite Hybrid Trailer

An absolutely fantastic product! This Weight Distribution System was purchased in conjunction with a tongue weight scale. Between the two, what had been an outright scary towing experience it now extremely pleasant in comparison. I recently installed the system and towed my show car in an enclosed 20’ trailer over 250 miles. I experienced none of the sway previously experienced during crosswinds or when semis past by. No more than I experience with just the truck sans trailer on the open road. I now feel safe, secure and confident. I have a short-bed, regular cab pick-up and tow a 20’ enclosed car transport, GVW of the trailer and show car varies between 6,000 and 7,000lbs depending on which car I’m showing and the supplies placed in the trailer.

This hitch has been performing very well! It was pretty easy to install (once you understand the concept of weight-distribution). It does exactly what you’d expect and the quality is good. My only complaint is the metal tabs used to release the bars from the hitch; they are very thin and slippery.

Love this WDH! It works great and came with easy to understand instructions on how to configure it for my tow vehicle and trailer. A hitch pin was bent in shipping and customer service replaced it quickly, no questions asked. I would definitely buy from etrailer.com again.

Has worked real good for a first time puller. Self installed, with a little help from the pros, but easy hook up and go. Feels real nice on the road, but not real familiar with pulling a trailer without one. Much better to buy and install than the fortune the dealer wanted to charge me.

The Fastway Weight Distribution Hitch with anti-sway works great. I installed Firestone Airlifts to my suspension as well. Very stable ride. The combination of air bags and WDH makes us feel a bit safer as well. It's fun to see folks on the highway who got it right, as opposed to those that didn't. This hitch may be load rated a little high for my set-up though - not much flex to the 8,000 lb. bars. We're pulling a 2003 Casita Spirit Deluxe with 2001 Isuzu Rodeo with only 205 HP...We are taking a two week trip next month. After, we will purchase a Toyota TRD Off Road Premium for the next trip - a little more HP and modern electronics! I think the Fastway the best setup for the money. We could have sprung for the Anderson system, but, why? This one does what is supposed to do. The only thing I would like to see improved is the noise it makes when turning corners sometimes. The bars make a pretty loud screeching sound. Like a large metal cattle gate with rusty hinges opening real slow. Any ideas on how to quiet this down? We're not supposed to lubricate. That would take the safety out of the anti-sway. Thank you Lisa D. for all of the time spent with me figuring out the best options for our needs.


Comments
The noise you hear is caused by the metal-on-metal friction caused by the downward force applied to the frame brackets by the spring bars. This friction is what provides the sway control. As you mentioned, lubricating the contact points would completely defeat the sway control feature. Unfortunately, the noise is just the nature of the beast with this type of product.

Working out well. I think I would order the 6,000 lb. Round bars if I had to do it again. The 8,000 lb. Bars ride a little rough. I now have a 2018 4runner for a TV and not using air bags. Much better in terms of HP and ride.

The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution hitch has been excellent for towing my 5000lb travel trailer, and was a good deal here on etrailer.com. The 2 way sway control keeps everything steady, and is the best I have ever used in my many years of towing travel trailers. The only problem I have experienced with it, is that when pulling out of Gas Stations or anywhere there is a small curb or gutter, it tends to drag. This usually causes the sway bar mount to get knocked out of alignment.

Still working great after a year and many miles.

The Fastway E2 hitch works great and was really easy to assemble. Just had a hard time getting the ball and nut on because there isn't a socket that fits in the location the nut sits. So we put a pipe wrench on the ball side. Other then that, this hitch is built well and you can back up with it all hooked up, it bolts on easily and serves 2 purposes. The lady from etrailer.com that I spoke with was the best of all. She has the know how and experience to get me set up with the proper size hitch. Or I would have done the bigger is better thing.

Bought this hitch for a newly acquired 24’ travel trailer. I liked the idea of the simple flat bars that reduce sway and distribute load. Long story short my trailer ended up whipping uncontrollably and I luckily was able to keep it upright despite being up on two wheels (tandem axel). I will admit I was negligent in not hitting the brakes on my brake controller being new to the travel trailer world. However I setup the hitch exactly how the instruction manual said. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! If you insist on buying a weight distribution hitch with sway control buy one with a separate adjustable sway controller. Etrailer please don’t continue advertising this product as having any type of sway reduction. This product almost killed my family and I. BUYER BEWARE!


Comments
Im sorry that you had that experience, Ive been there myself, and it is indeed frightening! Let me begin by saying that the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system does indeed offer a proven sway control component by the pressure exerted by the spring bars onto the trailer frame mounted brackets. In a good, better, best scenario, Id consider the e2 at the high end of better. So, given this, there are many things that could have potentially caused the sway occurrence you experienced, such as initial adjustment of the system, the way the trailer is loaded and using a system thats improperly rated for the trailers tongue weight which should include the weight of gear in the truck bed behind the rear axle. The setup of the system could be adjusted further for maximum effectiveness. Check that the trailer is being towed so that its as close to level as is possible. The tension placed on the frame brackets can be increased by tilting the trailer ball rearward. Increased tension equals more sway control. If tilting the ball rearward puts the trailer tongue below level, you can raise the weight distribution head on the shank by one set of holes. Improper loading of the trailer with too much weight in front of the axles can cause sway, but this happens more with cargo trailers. Having an improperly rated weight distribution system can lead to a swaying trailer. Weight distribution systems are rated for a range of tongue weights, usually a 400-600 lb spread. Ideally, youll want your trailers tongue weight which includes anything stowed in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle to come as close as possible to the midpoint of the systems effective range. For instance, this particular e2 system is rated for tongue weights between 400-800 lbs. Many folks neglect to include the weight of gear behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle when choosing a system, which can lead to an overloaded system. Ideally, for this system the trailers tongue weight should be around 600 lbs. These are the primary reasons for trailer sway, but there are other possibilities such as pavement condition, improperly inflated trailer tires, worn or damaged suspension components or something as simple as the occasional straight-line wind gust running perpendicular to the highway. Ive linked to our Weight Distribution/Sway Control FAQ article, which contains more information about the differences between systems, as well as additional information about how weight distribution and sway control work. As mentioned earlier, the e2 is a pretty decent system-theres only a few Id consider better. The Reese Strait-Line system, # RP66084
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$730.93
for tongue weights ranging from 600-1200 lbs or # RP66083
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW
$736.80
for 400-800 lb tongue weights. The Strait-Line is what Id consider top of the line, it will force the trailer to stay in line behind the tow vehicle, unless you make a deliberate turn. Another option that Id consider are the Equal-i-zer systems like the # EQ37120ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$983.37
for an 800-1200 lb tongue weight trailer or # EQ37060ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW
$737.12
for a 200-600 lb tongue weight or # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$737.12
for 600-1000 lbs of tongue weight. This system operates similarly to the e2, but instead of sway being resisted at 2 points, the Equalizer has a 4-point sway control, with the tension being applied at the point where the bars attach to the weight distribution head and the point where the bars contact the trailer frame brackets. A separate sway control unit like you mentioned, such as # 83660 is considered an-entry level sway control, will resist mild to moderate sway only, it would not be super-effective on a 24 foot travel trailer. If you have further questions or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to contact us.

This is the second Fastway E2 I have owned . I consider this hitch to be one of the best on the market for value and functionality. People need to keep in mind that proper installation and setup is key to weight distribution hitches . This hitch is easy to install and hook up.

The design of the system I don't like very much, the "L" brackets on the trailer hang down to low for my 4ft extention that I have to run, and they end up hitting any little dip in the road or when your pulling into a gas station, did try adjusting them up but I am at my max height right now and they still hang to low, I highly recomend buying a chain system this would eleminate the problem I am having.


Comments
If you buy a product that does not suit your specific needs Dont blame the product. Be smart and order something that works with your 4 extension. By the way the chain system wont make a difference in the height of your bars. Robert P.

All though I have hardly gotten to use the hitch I am very please with it. I have installed it on my 2013 1985 Lance TT being pulled with a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. e-trialer has been great the customer rep handling my order expedited my order, without being asked, and the hitch was delivered to me in Oregon in 6 days, just in time for the delivery of my new TT. etrailer had the lowest price for the hitch and thanks to the free shipping it came in under anyone else. Thank you keep up the great work. Chuck

Very happy with the product. It was a little stiff & took a lot of strength to get the bars up into place, but I hope it will loosen up in time a bit. It really helped to even out the weight of my truck to the trailer I hooked it up to. I was happy with the way the trailer towed behind my truck with this on it. This was my 1st purchase from e-trailer, the product was just as described & shipped very quickly. I was impressed with e-trailer & will be happy to do business with them again, if I need any future items.


Comments
The bars will be easier to get onto the brackets if you use the trailer jack to raise the trailer while its still hitched to the vehicle. Raising the rear of the vehicle a bit will take some of the tension off the bars, which will make them easier to move.

Works great, setup was easy and the stability it added was awesome. The campers has twice the service area as the tow vehicle, and even in crazy hurricane season winds in Florida I didn't sway in the least. The unit itself is an awkward shape and I had a hard time installing the ball. There is not enough room to use a standard socket to tighten the nut, and using wrenches was time consuming and aggravating so one star for that. Once your past that hurdle though it is a great product and recommended.



- FA94-00-0800

One year later, everything is still great. It handles the sway and the load very well. I wish it had an adjustment for the amount of tension like the ones with short sections of chain because I have a toy hauler and my load varies greatly and unloaded, I need almost no tension at all. It’s a trade-off because I don’t need an anti-sway bar when using this hitch. I can also park and maneuver the trailer without all of the pops and clangs that the hitches with adjustable chains have.

Used this product on a Lexus RX350 to tow an AR-One 15rb. Product works as I had hoped. Initial setup was straight forward, following the instructions. Hitch came quickly and parts fit well together. After first camping trip, made a small adjustment on the hitch to "level" trailer. Would recommend this hitch to others.

Ordered the wrong one called etrailer and got Justin on the line for help he did a little research with the information I gave him and he found the correct set up for me. Product delivery had issues the first time UPS damaged the package and was undeliverable. Called etrailer and a second one was delivered with no issues. It took a little while to install I had to go to the high school parking lot to get it dialed in the parking lot was more level than my street. Hooked up the trailer took it on a trip it performed great. Thanks Justin and the etrailer staff for the excellent service.

Works very good at weight distribution and helping with sway control. Once you get it dialed in with the trailer it's consistent and pretty much fool proof. Not for someone feeble as getting the trailing arms up into the bracket can be a handful and requires some muscle using the included "helper". Carry a rubber mallet with you to get the trailing arm off the bracket and help get the pins in place and you shouldn't have any problem hitching up.

Ask the Experts about this Fastway Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Can Weight Distribution System be Rated Too High
    A weight distribution system's rating isn't directly related to the capacities of the tow vehicle. If you make sure the system is appropriate for the loaded trailer's weight and the loaded trailer is within the capacities of the vehicle then you'll be just fine. So your concern here isn't the 500 pounds tongue weight rating of your 2016 Toyota 4Runner. Instead you need to make sure the system is appropriate for the new trailer. The best way to do this is to find its loaded tongue weight....

  • Choosing a Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System for 550 TW
    If you fully load your trailer and find it has a tongue weight of 550 lbs and towing weight of 6,200 lbs, then ideally you should choose a weight distribution system's where your tongue weight sits middle-road of the system's capacity. As for a Fastway e2 option, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW - Round Bar # FA94-00-0800 is a good option. This system has a described tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs - 800 lbs, and your 550 lbs is just slight below halfway...

  • Selecting Weight Distribution/ Sway Control Hitch for 5000-lb KZ 2802 Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
    A properly-rated and correctly-installed trailer weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) system can make a big difference in the handling and feel of your travel trailer towing setup. WD/SC hitches can correct for vehicle rear-end sag, which tends to degrade both steering and braking performance, and they also reduce the sway-inducing effects of passing semi trucks that blast you and your trailer with substantial air pressure as they go by. All in all the right setup will make your towing...

  • Weight Distribution Needed for a 2016 Nissan Frontier Towing an R-pod R-179
    You are definitely headed in the right direction! When looking into purchasing a Weight Distribution (WD) system you want to find one with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. The TTW is found by adding the TW of your fully loaded trailer, which you can use part # 5780 for, along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is...

  • Solution to Install Spring Bars of Weight Distribution System that are Hard to Raise into Position
    Spring bars of weight distribution systems like the part # FA94-00-0800 are designed to put a great deal of tension on the bar hangers. What is recommended to do is use the trailer jack to raise the trailer up (while connected to tow vehicle hitch ball), so that the spring bars can then be easily installed on the hangers with the included lift handle? Once connected you would then be able to lower the jack.

  • Will Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Work For 2019 Coleman Light LX 1605FB Travel Trailer
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0800 is a great option for your 2019 Coleman Light LX 1605FB, and I'll explain why. The ideal weight distribution with sway control system will be one in which your total tongue weight falls somewhere in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity. Total tongue weight (or TTW for short) is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance with 220-Foot Airstream Trailer
    When it comes to ground clearance the preferred type of weight distribution (WD) hitch is the trunnion style, such as # RP66542 from Reese. Trunnion spring bars attach to the head unit from the side rather than from the bottom like round bar systems like the Fastway # FA94-00-0800 and so they provide better ground clearance. The linked article on WD systems may be helpful to you as it explains the features of various systems. For a 600-lb TW Reese system # RP66083 is a great choice. All...

  • Troubleshooting E2 Weight Distribution Hitch Sway Issues
    It sounds like the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0800 or # FA92-00-0800 is the correct system for your 1/2 full trailer but not for your loaded trailer. You want a system rated for total tongue weight which includes the tongue weight of your trailer and any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your F-150. That total tongue weight will ideally be in the middle of the range of your weight distribution system, so your Fastway e2 is not the correct system for your needs. For a 1000 lb e2 upgrade...

  • How To Remove the Spring Bars from the L-Brackets on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    When trying to remove the spring bars on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, # FA94-00-0800, you should use your trailer jack to relieve the tension on the weight distribution system. By raising the trailer tongue, you are taking some of the tongue weight of the hitch. With the tongue weight lowered, the tension on the bars will be lowered and then you will be able to use the included tool to remove the spring bars from the L-brackets.

  • Fastway Weight Distribution-Amount of Washers, How to Remove Spring Bars and Torque Figure Question
    I spoke to my contact at Fastway and he informed me that on a shorter wheelbase vehicle like your 2003 Ford Expedition a good starting point would be 5-6 washers, but the reason they do not list a recommended amount in the instructions is because the amount of washers required varies based on the application. The easiest way to get the spring bars off is to use the trailer jack to raise the coupler when connected to a trailer so that the spring bar tension is relieved and can easily...

  • Recommended Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System for a Trailer that is 5,500 lbs GTW and 600 lbs TW
    Weight Distribution (WD) systems are great, but it can be difficult to find one with the correct range sometimes. You are heading in the right direction when it comes to figuring out what WD system you will need based off of your Tongue Weight (TW) and Gross Trailer Weight (GTW). You will also need to add the weight of any cargo that sits behind the rear axle of your 2012 Silverado 1500 into the mix as well. When you add the TW of your loaded and ready-to-go trailer plus the weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 21-Ft Trail Lite Camper
    The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer With a 2010 Honda Odyssey
    By all means, take your children camping! I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2010 Honda Odyssey and it looks like the maximum total trailer weight (the weight of your loaded trailer) you Odyssey can tow is going to depend on the number of occupants. According to the manual, the number of occupants is calculated at 150 lbs per person, so take that into account, though it seems likely your Odyssey will still have enough capacity for a 2,300 lb trailer, just be mindful of the amount...

  • Towing a Boat Trailer with Folding Tongue Using Weight Distribution with Camper in Truck Bed
    It is not a good idea to use weight distribution with a folding tongue due to the amount of force applied by the spring bars to the trailer. If you were to do it you would need to have a pole tongue adapter such as # RP58393 since the trailer does not have a traditional A-Frame. The other issue is that you would need a system rated much higher. This is because when you calculate tongue weight for weight distribution you have to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle...

  • Which Weight Distribution is Best for a Jayco Jay Feather SLX
    The best way to choose a weight distribution system is to determine your total tongue weight. The total tongue weight includes the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo loaded in the back of your truck behind the rear axle. Based on the dry weight and GVWR of your trailer, I would estimate your trailer's tongue weight to be around 400 lbs to 600 lbs loaded. The total tongue weight could be higher depending on what cargo you load behind the...

  • What is Difference Between Round Bar and Trunnion Fastway Weight Distribution System
    Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. Typically trunnion...

  • Troubleshooting Sway Issues on a 33 ft Trailer With the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, # FA94-00-0800, has a built in sway control system and will not support additional sway control systems. A few things that you can check to help with sway issues is to make sure the tongue weight of your trailer is about 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight by adding more weight to the front of the trailer. Too much weight at the back of the trailer can cause trailer sway as well. You could also raise the L-brackets or add washers...

    You always want to check your weight ratings and how much your equipment weighs before going on a trip to make sure that you are within your weight capacities. Another thing to keep in mind is that your Tongue Weight (TW) should be between 10-15 percent of your trailer. When looking at a WD system you will want to make sure that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your loaded and ready-to-go setup falls in the middle of the range of the WD system that you choose. You can find your TTW by...

The reason for the upgrade is that your loaded tongue weight plus any cargo behind the rear axle of your Titan is what accounts for the total tongue weight used to determine a weight distribution system.

    It sounds to me that the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0800 is not adjusted correctly or you have it overloaded, like you said. To determine if the 800 pound tongue weight rating is enough find out the exact tongue weight of your loaded and ready to tow trailer. Not just what the sticker says it's rated for. The sticker will give you the dry tongue weight. Also add in the amount of weight behind your rear axle of your van to the trailer's tongue weight and this is what your system should be...
