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

Yes, if you:

  • Have a trailer with 600 lbs – 1,000 lbs of tongue weight that experiences sway from time to time
  • Don't want to have to go through the hassle of disconnecting anything to back your rig up or to tow in the rain
  • Have a lifted truck and won't be able to use the standard shank that typically comes with these hitches

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 sold separately. 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.

I tried to buy a weight distribution hitch from mail order company and they sent me the wrong one twice. Twice. I shipped them both back (Pain in the butt) and ordered it from you guys for $15 more. It came not only Free Shipping, but correct and in two days! You have me hooked! Thanks! (I'm going on vacation with my family and needed this leveling hitch!)

I love it! I have owned 3 or 4 other leveling hitches in the last 20 years and this is the best one I have ever had. Easy to hook up and works like a charm!

Seems to work great. Have done a trial tow around the neighborhood. True test will be a real trip out of town. Was pretty easy to set up. Do not tighten the mounting bolts to shank until after the setup height, angles, etc are set. The lock tight material in those belts makes is REALLY hard to undo them if you need to.

Great for safe towing! Use this on my flat bed racecar hauler, about 6k# total and my 1/2 ton Yukon feels like a 3/4 ton. Follow directions to setup properly and it feels great. Note that I had to put the car a few inches rearward after the hitch because of how it distributes the weight. Also for GM vehicles with stabilitrak, Puch the button and release once to turn off traction control, then hold it down until stabilitrak turns off or else it will disable itself and bark at you for half a dozen drives after the hitch is removed.

Bought this for a 4th Gen Ram 2500, to use with our travel trailer. I liked that i had to purchase the hitch shank separately, due to most WD hitches, dont come with the proper shank for taller trucks anyway. This is a great product, and was easy to install. Definitely helped with the sway. We didnt have much sag to start, due to the heavier truck. It did also take the small sag we had out completely. I would purchase again if needed.

I have had this hitch/weight distribution setup for a year now and I am very pleased. The trailer hookup is a simple process and the trailer is level. The built in sway control seems to be doing the trick, no issues. I am pulling a 29' Nash 25c with a GVW of 8500 lbs with a 2012 Tundra Crewmax.

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


I communicated a few times with Miranda in Customer Service, during and after my purchase. Miranda was helpful, knowledgeable and quick to respond!! The product seems well made and pretty easy to install with the exception of high torque requirements on two bolts and trailer ball. I'd give the install instructions a 4 STAR rating. The install of the spacer washers concerning the "head pitch" are vague with no picture. I referred to a Video for clarification on the install.


Comments
I just sold my 2020, 20ft Toyhauler, after one year and only about 6 trips. Thanks COVID! I’ve never towed anything the size of a camper and would highly recommend the E2 assembly! The E2 makes the camper feel like a continuation of my RAM 1500 V6. Lots of back roads and mountain towing and always in control! Only concern, when I removed the E2 tongue brackets when i sold the camper last month, one of the four factory nuts and bracket was a little loose? Picking up new 2021 Transcend next weekend!

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

A year out and still working perfectly! White knuckle drives are a thing of the past. No more sway or buffeting by passing big rigs!

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...

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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

I have linked a digital copy of the installation instructions for you. Step 8 - Final Tightening covers the torque specs for different parts of the Weight Distribution system.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


I am very pleased on the performance of our E2 hitch. Being from central Montana, it can be quite windy along the mountains. With a 28 ft camper this was my greatest concern as most of our trips are into the mountains. The hitch leveled out the trailer, distributed the weight and controlled the wind gusts as I had hoped and expected. Jennifer was super helpful when there was an issue with my order online. She took care of the issue and had our hitch on its way.

Review from a similar e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


2015 Chevy Equinox, 3.6 LTZ, AWD. Install was simple just followed the steps. Leveling the vehicle out was a process and I couldn’t find the middle for the front suspension. It was either extremely under / over adjusted or right where the suspension started without a load on it. I decided to leave the adjustment with the front fender at its initial position while using the weight distribution. The vehicle and trailer were both level, I’m pulling a 17BH Coachman Clipper dry 2900lbs. I drove an hour to the camp ground with no sway or excessive suspension play. Same drive back in the rain/sleet no issues at all up to 75MPH.

Awesome item! After following the set-up video we have had no issues with this WD set-up. I have to look in the rearview mirror to know the camper is behind me! This set up keeps the camper tracking true and straight on the road, I hardly notice when big rigs pass by and being able to back the camper without having to disconnect anything is awesome. My wife and I hook up the camper with this system quite easily! Highly recommend!

  • Weight Distribution Hitch For 5,600lb Camper With Tongue Weight Of 735lbs
    When towing a trailer that has a gross weight that is over 50 percent of the vehicle's gross weight, a weight distribution system is recommended.

Then you could add a 2-1/2 inch shank such as # EQ90-02-4800, or a similar shank. You will also need a ball, # 19286.

You will actually just need to get a shank like the Fastway e2 # FA92-02-4315 to connect the Weight Distribution System if you have a 2 inch hitch receiver. Since the Fastway e2 # FA90-00-1033 has a built-in ball mount, the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-2 will not fit with it. If you are needing a 2 inch Hitch Ball, I recommend using the Curt # A-90.

    With a trailer weighing 3,820 pounds the tongue weight will be in the neighborhood of 380 to 573 pounds which is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. But to that you also need to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So for example if you had 100 pounds of gear behind the tow vehicle rear axle that would make the tongue weight 480 to 673 pounds. The minimum tongue weight for the Fastway system, # FA94-00-1033, to be effective is 400 pounds....

However, I do have an option for you that does not require you to buy two shanks, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA94-00-1033 and the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank part...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution System for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with 3 Inch Lift
    There is only one size shank that comes with the Curt weight distribution systems so you would have to get a different shank separately if more drop is needed. What I recommend though is Fastway system # FA94-00-1033. It doesn't come with a shank so you can order one to go with it that has the right amount of drop such as # C17123. With this system you will also need a ball, # 19286, for a 2-5/16 inch ball. I have linked a video review of the Fastway system for you.

  • Correct Shank for 7" Drop with Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Round Bar System
    Even though your weight distribution (WD) shank (I believe is part # FA92-02-4100) has about a 7" drop, since drop/rise is measured to the trailer coupler (the ball mount platform basically) this means that the max drop of a WD shank won't equal the max rise of the shank when it is inverted due to head assembly installing with 2 bolts. To achieve a true 7" max drop you would have to disregard the bottom bolt for the head unit and only use the top bolt hole of the head unit # FA94-00-1033...

  • 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...

  • Will a Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System Work with a Lifted 2004 GMC Sierra 1500
    The Fastway e2 weight distribution system # FA94-00-1033 is rated for a maximum of 1,000 pounds tongue weight. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So if your total tongue weight is under 1,000 pounds then the system will work for you. For a compatible...

  • Determining Best Weight Distribution System For Travel Trailer Weighing Less Than 6000lbs
    I would be happy to go over how to determine the correct weight distribution system for towing your 1946 Spartan Manon Travel Trailer, but you will need to confirm the total tongue weight of your trailer before deciding an a system. To determine the correct weight distribution system you will need to know the total tongue weight of your trailer which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to tow trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle....

  • 2019 Ram 1500 Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control
    I suggest the Fastway e2 # FA92-00-0800. This is rated for a GTW from 400-800 lbs. and for trailers up to a gross weight of 8,000lbs. This unique design makes system compatible with surge-type brake actuators. I also highly recommend that you verify tongue weight prior to investing in a weight distribution system as the tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. The tongue weight is generally speaking between...

  • Weight Distribution System Replacement Parts
    The round spring bars and friction anti-sway arm you have remaining from your weight distribution system can be re-used with a replacement shank and head assembly. All WD shanks, such as part # C17123 for 2-inch hitches, are standardized so you can use any brand of shank as a replacement. However, the spring bars, head assembly and trailer brackets are specific to the brand and model of system. You will either need to confirm the brand and series of bars you have to know the proper items...

  • Can Firestone Air Helper Springs Be Used With A Weight Distribution System On A 2016 Toyota 4Runner
    In short, you can absolutely use the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs # F4135 which are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Toyota 4Runner with a weight distribution system. With that said, you will more than likely be just fine with just a weight distribution system as it will work to level your 4Runner itself by design. Personally I would go with just a weight distribution first, and if you find that even with a correctly set up weight distribution system the rear of your vehicle is...

  • Will a Weight Distribution Hitch Help With Vehicle Sag on the Rear Axle When Flipped Over
    A weight distribution hitch like the Pro Series # 49570 is actually designed to help with the sag you're experiencing; flipping it upside down is not going to help with the situation and would actually render the system pretty much useless. I would also recommend making sure that you're towing with the trailer completely level and you don't actually need a different rise/drop shank than the one that you're using. With that said, it's possible that your weight distribution system just...
