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
  • 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. Shank and 2-5/16" hitch ball 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.

Not sure if it was this alone, or this in combination with the roadmaster active suspension, but when I hooked it up to my new trailer that is 2000 lbs heavier, it towed like a dream. Very pleasantly surprised, and almost half of what the dealership wanted to charge me. Was skeptical of not going with a different brand, but so far no regrets at all. Easy to install as well.


Comments
Still working well. The only concern after a year is that the bolts that hold the side brackets on have loosened up a bit. I guess this is expected over time, but it almost seems as if they cannot be tightened enough to prevent a little bit of play.

Part of why I chose this hitch was because I have an 8.5 x 18 trailer with a V-nose, and this one would just fit, while some others wouldn't. I towed my trailer unloaded with and without the hitch and fully loaded with the hitch. I never had sway in any of the cases, but the weight distribution was absolutely necessary for the loaded trailer, and worked very well. It also gave me more confidence when towing. Pretty easy to set up once you get used to it, and it really leveled out my towing rig (and was required for the tongue weight I had). There are a couple of little pins that retain the spring bars in the hitch head that look pretty flimsy, but I didn't have any trouble with them after towing over 3000 miles. I am thinking about getting a couple extra just in case. e-trailer sells them, and they are pretty cheap. Make sure the friction pad on the bars are angled level with the L-brackets and lubricate where the spring bars go into the head. I ordered the pre-installed hitch ball, as I don't have a torque wrench that goes high enough to properly torque the hitch ball. Overall it's a solid setup and a must have if you have a significant tongue weight.

Last weekend we took a 150 mile trip with our older nomad camper. The e2 weight Distribution w/2 point sway control worked like a charm. Even had a cross wind at around 25-30mph and there was little to no sway. I took a bad picture of the hitch set up, but my pull was with a 2000 chev. pickup 1500 , 4 wheeler in the back end of pickup ,and trailer loaded to around 7,000 lbs. I will and have told many people about this hitch set-up already. Excellent job etrailer.

This trailer weight distribution and sway control set up has made a huge difference in towing. The first trip we took with out 28' travel trailer was a slow going trip with lots of white knuckle driving. After that i bought and installed this set up and it was like driving a whole different way with less stress that was noticed even before we got out of town. I will not be towing a camper with out this. Install was simple but would be much easier with a second set of hands.

This is actually my second Fastway e2 WD hitch. I purchased one for my boat a few years ago and was impressed. I purchased this one for my new travel trailer (it's a bit heavier) and I'm definitely not disappointed. Since it has a wide range of adjustment, I can use it now with my smaller trailer and in the future when I upgrade to something bigger. Definitely recommend.

This hitch has been amazing! So far I have put over 2500 miles on it pulling a 6000+ lb trailer with my F150 and I have been incredibly satisfied. The hitch is very easy to hook up and disconnect and the ride is great. This distributes the weight perfectly and the ride is great. I like this way better than the chain style WDH that I used on my last camper. I particularly like that this unit handles sway control without an additional friction device. I have had zero problems with sway, bouncing, or ride control since installing this. I highly recommend it!


Comments
Over 6600 miles on this hitch, and not a problem! We have driven from Michigan to Niagara Falls, Florida, and countless places closer to home. I have hooked/unhooked this hitch 50+ times and it is extremely quick and easy. I am still highly satisfied with this hitch and recommend it to everybody I know who is getting started.

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.

Not my first experience with etrailer. Have purchased 4 hitches from them and every experience has been great. Just bought the Fastway e2 10,000 lb hitch to pull a new travel trailer and picked up the trailer today. I was somewhat concerned about picking it up today because the wind has been blowing at 15 to 20 mph. If you have pulled a TT in wind you know how it can cause unnerving sway. I have had white knuckle experiences with my other TT and hitch but this was not my experience today. There was only 1 time which I felt the sway from the wind on the way home and that was not significant. I believe I purchased a good hitch and I know I bought it from the right dealer.


Comments
Works well but is noisier than when new. Wish there was something could be done to make it quieter.
Don - 04/14/2019

The noise you're hearing is the metal on metal friction that occurs between the spring bars and the trailer frame brackets. This is what prevents the trailer from swaying. Unfortunately, the noise is unavoidable as any lubrication added would render the sway control ineffective.

This hitch worked perfectly for hauling the camper with our F150. Easy to use. I love that I can back up without removing the arms.


Comments
Still happy a year later. We camped more this summer than ever before Covid caused something good and it still works well. Very happy with it, a great product!

Extremely satisfied with this hitch. Using the included instructions made Installation, setup & adjustment a breeze. Hook-up is easy with the included tool. The hitch was used to tow a 2018 Jayco 23RBM behind a 2018 Ram Power Wagon. It preformed flawlessly on a 600 mile trip & the sway control took all the anxiety out of towing. A very nice hitch for the price.

Still 100 satisfied with the hitch. Preformes flawlessly.

After 1 year of use, I just don't know why you would pay more for a weight distribution hitch. Have had no troubles at all with this product. The main selling point for me was the ability to back up without disconnecting anything. I currently pull a travel trailer that weighs around 8700#s.


Comments
Still working great. I use my travel trailer a couple times a month. Pulled around 5000 miles. Have had no trouble. would definitely recommend it.

I bought this hitch to tow an enclosed car trailer behind a Nissan Titan. My main goal was to reduce sway as my previous WD hitch had no sway control. This hitch only has 2 points of friction whereas other Fastway models have 4. The anti-sway on this hitch is basically ineffective. I would say compared to the previous WD hitch that had no anti-sway that this one is no different. Very disappointed. I later purchased a Husky Centerline TS to tow a travel trailer behind the same truck and it is amazing at reducing anti-sway and I paid less for it. AVOID this model.

I like it very much. Easy to install, but you may need a torque wrench to get the 250 ft-lbs required to tighten the head bolts. I used my weight and math to do it. Worked well. The ability to change the height of the ball when you change trailers or trucks it the strong suit for this hitch and it comes will the ball attached and torqued. Great value.

We had one of the "L" brackets bend slightly and the manufacturer did send us a new set of "L" brackets within a week of contacting them. Great service. I would purchase this again and would recommend to anyone looking for a dual purpose load distributing/ anti-sway set up. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars was because the "L" bracket bent when it should not have.

I have made two long hauls using the new swaybar system. It has made a big difference in how safe and in control you feel. The most important part of the system for me is how it has almost eliminated the rocking motion produced at the point of the trailer tongue and ball mount.

I love my hitch and weight distribution system. It has given me great control when towing my travel trailer.

Damn good product! Went from white knuckle on the wheel, to easy rolling with a 30' camper. I'm planning on buying another for my equipment trailer! Take the time to do it right & follow the instructions.

The product was shipped promptly and came in without any damage. I use this on my 2015 Ram 1500 (Big Horn) truck to pull a Rockwood 232XRT camper. The tongue weight can get pretty large on this type camper (one axle) due to it having 2 full propane tanks, 2 batteries and then my 470 pound Kawasaki Versys on the front. This definitely reduces that weight and make the Truck perfectly level when towing. It also makes the trailer much better to tow as far as sway (the Truck stays in a perfectly straight line going down the road with now sway/jitter effect. Overall I am very happy with this hitch.

Product worked perfectly, took some time to get it right. But things that are to easy, I've found easy is cheap. Fast delivery, great product and nice costumer service. Will order from etrailer again, need mirrors to fit GMC Sierra 2011 than summer begins


Comments
Been working really good, still trying to find decent mirror extension though
Christopher - 06/27/2019

Thanks for the follow up. I have included a link to the towing mirrors that we have that are confirmed as a fit for your 2011 GMC Sierra. There are both custom and universal fit options available.

Everything was delivered on time and in good condition. It was a few days before I tried to install it. I did have to move my brake switch as this was the only open place on the trailer frame. Using the start point for the install I was unable to get the bars in place. I had to move them to the lowest position to start my adjustments. I have yet to road test to see how close I am at this point.

My wife and I just purchased a new trailer, Lance 1885, and ordered the Fastway e2 hitch for our F150 from etrailer.com. The hitch was shipped the day we ordered it, Saturday, and arrived the day before we were to pick up the trailer. Once we had the trailer we read the hitch instruction manual, watched the videos, and in less than two hours total, including watching the videos, the hitch was installed and adjusted. The next week we took our first trip with the trailer from our home in Vista, CA to Jumbo Rocks Campground in Joshua Tree National Park. The Trip from Vista to Joshua Tree was about 300 miles round trip. The trailer pulled very easily and was rock solid the entire trip. The hitch worked better than advertised.
