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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The trailer brackets occasionally slide back despite having the bolts torqued as specified. This resulted in having a spring bar bending and then dropping from the "L" bracket during a tight left turn leaving a fueling pump.

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.

Awesome shipping on Etrailers part! I love this hitch for the ease of setup and to take a part. There are arguments that the bend in the bars comprimises the strentgh of the set up but these are only rated for a certain weight anyways! These bars make absolutely no noise if properly lubed in the head and bars are level with the trailer. They do an awesome job with the W/D and the sway control! Easy enough that my wife can hook up and tear down! Highly recommended!

Received product in 4 days. Arrived in good condition. Easily installed and works great. Still had sway on first trip. Made adjustments to increase spring tension per instruction book. Still had a little sway, but it was a windy day. I think it's going to be fine. Great experience dealing with Etrailer!

  • How to Adjust Weight Rating of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch
    Weight distribution hitches like the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-1061 are weight sensitive. You do not want to use one rated lower or higher than the actual tongue weight of the setup. An under-rated system will not be able to do its job of shifting trailer tongue weight forward as it should and an over-rated one will result in jumpy handling from the trailer. It is possible to swap out the spring bars in the hitch to have a different weight capacity. We have three sets of Fastway round bars...

Since the Fastway # FA94-00-1061 e2 system you'd looked at has a recommended loaded tongue weight range between 600-1000 lbs. It would work pretty well if your trailer tongue weight is above 600 lbs. If the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight is below 600 lbs, I'd recommend the lower rated e2 version, part # FA94-00-0600. The 1000 lb system includes the trailer ball, but for the 600...

    The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 10K GTW, 1K TW # C17062 has the older style chain system along with a friction sway bar. This is a decent system, however the systems with sway control integrated into the brackets like the # FA94-00-1061 you referenced are far better at controlling sway. Other than the difference in two points of sway control integrated into the weight support, the other difference is in the ability to back up your trailer...

  • Correct Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System for 4,700 Pound Dry Weight Trailer
    Spring bars that are rated up to 1,000 pounds might sound too high for a 4,700 pound trailer but you need to keep in mind that's the trailer's dry weight. A weight distribution system needs to be rated based on the trailer when it's loaded to work properly. So I recommend loading your trailer like it will be when you're towing and then finding out its tongue weight. In addition, any weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle acts as tongue weight for a weight distribution system....

  • How Much Do the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems Weigh
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems like part # FA94-00-1061 weigh around 85 lbs. That said, the weight of a weight distribution system does not get added to the total as it becomes part of the frame. In regards to lifting, you'd only be picking up around 20-30 lbs max at one time since the kit is separated in several different components. We also have the HitchGrip Carrying Tool for Weight Distribution Head Assembly part # 303-HG-712 which will help with lifting.

  • Can Fastway Round Bar Weight Distribution be Used with Bottom Mount or Underslung Trailer Coupler
    You have what is called a bottom mount or underslung coupler. The Fastway weight distribution system # FA94-00-1061 will work with this type of coupler. You will just need to install the link plates (that go on the trailer frame) upside down. There are steps on how to do this in the instructions which I have linked for you. I have also linked a video review for you.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2019 Wildwood 28RLSS
    The Fastway e2 # FA94-00-1061 is definitely a good option, but you will want to double check your tongue weight to make sure it will work for you. The tongue weight can be anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the total loaded weight of the trailer. If you are closer to the 10%, you will roughly be at 776 pounds and it will work perfectly for your trailer as the # FA94-00-1061 has a minimum tongue weight capacity of 600 pounds and a maximum capacity of 1,000 pounds. That being said, if you...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Use with a Summer Wind 24 ft RV
    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. Your tongue weight could be anywhere...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer With Dry Hitch Weight of 540 lbs
    A trailer with a dry hitch weight of 540 lbs is a good place to start, but in order to choose the best weight distribution system, you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. To determine your trailer's loaded tongue weight you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in the help article...

  • Correct Weight Distribution Hitch for 7600-lb and 10,000-lb Trailers
    Since your new 10K GVWR trailer will have an even higher loaded TW than the current one the better WD option is the Equal-I-zer # EQ37140ET since it works for TW from 1000-lbs up to 1400-lbs. It will be usable with your current trailer and also the new one. The loaded tongue weight (TW) of your 7600-lb GVWR Forest River is going to be right around 1000-lbs so the Fastway system # FA94-00-1061 is under-rated. Loaded TW is what matters here. This WD hitch fits a 2-inch hitch and includes...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Ford Expedition and 5600-lb Dry Weight Trailer
    The main differences between the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System # FA94-00-1061 and the similarly-rated Equal-i-zer system # EQ37101ET are that the Fastway has 2-point sway control whereas the Equal-i-zer uses 4-point sway control, and that the Fastway e2 includes a shank and hitch ball. These must be added to the Equal-i-zer system. The key to selecting a weight distribution (WD) and sway control (SC) system for your trailer is to know it's fully-loaded, road-ready tongue weight...
