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.

Video Transcript for Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System Review

Randy: Hey, guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Now, we get questions all the time from our customers. They're trying to figure out which is going to be the best weight distribution system for themNow, there are a few different types of weight distribution out there. The more basic set is something similar to like a CURT MV Set up. Just going to be your Trunnion bars that come back, no friction sway control whatsoever, you actually have to add that on secondary, and with that system you can't back up, so it's kind of an older more antiquated system.A lot of the systems, this one is the one we're looking at today. This is from Fastway.

This is the e2 set up. This gives us all of the weight distribution properties through a Trunnion bar. I like Trunnion bars a lot more than I do round bars because those tend to hang down kind of a lot lower in reduced ground clearance, but it also has built-in friction sway control right here on each side.We've got friction material built on right to the bottom of the bar and on top of the bracket, and as those move against each other in a sway event, it really helps to hold everything back in place. Now, that system, the e2 system is going to work out for the majority of trailers out there. It has a lot of different weight ratings to pick from.If we we're to go a step beyond this, let's say you have really large bumper pulled style campers, or any camper that doesn't have a lot of pin weight, that's where sway comes from, that tongue weight going down.

It kind of keeps everything in line. So, if you're trailer is prone to that, something like the EQUAL-I-ZER is probably going to be a better choice. That offers four points of sway control. It's almost identical to the e2 here, having the bars that slide back here to give you that straight force, but it also has two more points built into the head.So, you've got a good, a better, and a best option there. I really don't like the good option.

I don't think that that weight distribution system is good for most applications, save maybe utility trailers and things like that. If you're looking for just a bare bone system for weight distribution, that might be the one to pick.My favorite one happens to be this one. I like the simplicity of the system. I like that we don't have a ton of moving parts, it's very quiet and you'll see in the customer reviews, this e2 system is very popular. I think the ease of set up is really nice.

A lot of customers wish they would have got it sooner, so they didn't have to deal with the chains and the pipes and counting links and those kind of things.Now, another common question that we get other than which system is going to be the right one for me is, what does it actually do Basically, when we hook up a camper, which you'll see when we do our measurements, the back end of our truck goes down. The front end of our camper goes down. That's less than ideal. We're putting excess strain on that rear suspension components. Generally, the front end of the truck rises a little bit. That gives us a lot of negative handling and braking effects. Changes our suspension geometry so we get weird tire wear, and we're also going to have our headlights tilted up slightly.On the trailer side, is that front end comes down and the tandem set up, you're putting more weight on the front axle. It's going to wear out more quickly in the tire and in the suspension area than what the rear axle will. So, when we set up a weight distribution system like this, we're basically creating at a connection point from our trailer up to our hitch.If you think about it like a wheelbarrow, it's essentially how it's going to work out. We lift our truck and trailer up so we can get our bar set, and then when we lower it back down, instead of it letting the back of the truck tilt down, it holds it up. It's going to hold it to where it's right back to that factory height. By doing that, it pushes those front wheels back down, so we return all those handling and safety characteristics that we need.By combining that with sway control, it keeps everything tracking down the road smoothly so if we have a cross wind, we don't have to worry about our trailer getting out of control and winding up in the median rolled over. The tractor trailer passes us or if we pass a tractor trailer, that sudden gust isn't going to cause us any issues.A lot of times in an improperly loaded trailer, even taking your foot off the gas as you crest a hill can cause sway to start. So it's an excellent idea not only to load your trailer properly to have proper tongue weight on it, but to incorporate sway control so you don't have any of those issues.Now, this sway control system in my mind is one of the better ones out there. I like the way the Trunnion bar slides on the bracket. It eliminates a lot of set up hassle, like trying to get cam levers on, you almost need two hands and you're with the train, that's with like the CURT TruTrack system. I like the way this one works a lot, especially when we compare this to a standard friction bar set up.A friction bar, you have to put it on each time you want to leave after you have everything hooked up, and then anytime you want to back up, you have to take it back off. That friction bar gives you about 40 pounds worth of sway control effort, whereas with this e2 system we're looking at closer to 400 pounds. So, we're getting almost 10 times the effect out of this system than what we would out of a sway control friction bar.Now I really like the overall construction of this system, too. I think it's going to be something that lasts for a good long time. All the powder coat on it looks really nice. All of our hardware is going to be nickel coated. Our spacers and that, once we have everything set, it's pretty straightforward. There's not a lot of adjustments to make. You might have to change slightly the amount of washers if you switch from trailer to trailer, but overall it's going to work out really well. You can see our Trunnion ends here, the Trunnion bars are really nice. Overall, I think this is going to stay looking good for a very long time.As far as service and maintenance goes, there's really not a whole lot to it. The biggest part is going to be right here at our Trunnions where they go into the head. By putting a little bit of grease in here and also in the top, you're just really going to help reduce any noise that you might have while the system's in operation, and we also have our keepers here. It's a good idea to keep those lubricated so they move freely for you.Now, before we go through the process of getting our measurements and doing all the installation and everything, it's important for you to pick the right weight setting for your application. Basically, the way we're going to get the tongue weight is going to be the weight of anything we have behind our rear axle and the tongue weight of our trailer. We want to combine those and that should be the TW rating.The GTW rating is going to be our Gross Trailer Weight rating. That's going to be the total weight of anything behind that rear axle, anything in the camper, and the weight of the camper and it should be loaded how you intend to haul it. You don't want to have an empty trailer with no water in the tank, and set it up that way because you're not going to have the effect once it does get loaded.So, get those measurements, or get those weights and pick a system that matches that. You'll know like with the 1,200 pound system here, our camper's only about 8,000, but this system works between eight and 1,200, so, when this gets water in the tank, it'll be up to that 84. It's going to be within that range. These go all the way down to like 450 pounds in tongue weight and 4,500 pounds in Gross Trailer Weight through those smaller applications, so, they really cover a wide range, and give you just about the perfect weight rating you're going to need for just about any situation.Now, while everything does look pretty normal here with the truck, these Ram 2500s really have a pretty good pitch-up to the back of them when they're unloaded, and right now we're running pretty level. So, what we're going to do is measure off the rear wheel here, just to see what kind of difference that we have before and after that pin weight goes on, and we can go from there.See, currently we're at about 41" here in the back. We're going to go up in the front, we'll measure the same thing there. Here we're at about 40-3/4". Here with our trailer unhooked or disconnected, look how much higher the back of that truck is sitting. That's where we want to get it back to. That's where it wants to be from the factory, so, using that weight distribution set up, we should be able to return this right back to where it started.Just to give us an idea, we we're at 41", we're now at 43-1/4". So, 2-1/4" higher here in the back. Our front was at 40-3/4", and see now it's back closer right down to 40, so half inch doesn't seem like a whole lot, but there's a lot of weight being put back down on that front end and that half inch.We've got everything kind of set up. We've got our camper nice and level. That's important, then we measure our coupler height. Basically that's going to be right to the top of the coupler here. We're going to use our shank. Now, this isn't a shank that's going to come with the kit since this truck is quite a bit higher than most common vehicles. We've had to use a drop shank.So, we've got the head installed here and you can see we have added our 2-5/16" ball. You'll need to pick up a ball with an 1-1/4" shank and we want this to be appropriate for your trailer. So, if you're going to be using a 2" coupler on your trailer, this should be 2", 2-5/16" you'll want 2-5/16" and we've got plenty of these available on our website. This one happens to be the EQUAL-I-ZER brand. I like this one over the other brands when using this style of set up because the shank is the appropriate length. You can see that we can get our large nut put on there and we can crush our washer so we don't have a lot of overhang down through there. So that's something I like there.Now, when setting the height of our ball we need that to match our coupler as closely as possible so these holes are an 1-1/4" of adjustable so we'll want to get it as close as we can to that, and you'll line up the holes in the shank. Once we have it where we want it, you're going to put one of the conical tooth washers on our bolt, and we're just going to loosely slide this in for now, and we also need to insert our rivet here with our washers on.Now, depending on your application, for longer wheel based trucks you're going to use six probably. You might add one more in there if need be. On shorter wheel based vehicles you're going to use five to start. You might need to add one in. You can see right down here on the back side there's an open hole so we'll take that. You're going to get that slid down in there, then we'll capture it so it won't come out, slide our bolt through, take my bottom bolt which I had in out for the washer on that, slide it through, place our washers on the other side, we'll just get our nut started.All right, with that in position and our bolts loosely secure for now, we've got our bolt right here. Now this is going to cause our head to come up and it's going to pinch that washer and rivet set up against the shank. So, we want to tighten it until it makes contact. All right, that's made contact so now what we need to do is go one half turn from there. So we'll go a quarter, and another quarter. So, we've got that set into place now, we've got our angle set on our ball. You can see there's a slight downward tilt to that, which is what we're looking for. Now let's turn to the tongue of the trailer and get our work done there.Now on the trailer side, you can see we've placed a mark right in the center of our coupler. Now, I need to mark from there back 30". That's going to be the center for our side bracket. We'll do that on both sides of our trailer. We're just going to create a square line there. Now, if 30" won't work, 30" is recommended. That's going to be the center of our bracket, so we'll have a little overhang this side, we'll have a little overhang this side. You can bring this in as much to 27 on center. You don't want to go any shorter than that, though, so definitely keep that in mind. This should be where it's going to work the best, somewhere between 30" on center which is ideal, as little as 27" on center, but the closer to 30 we get, the better.Now, for our clamps you can see we've taken one of our longer bolts there. You've got a lock washer and a nut on it. We're going to place that down over and we want our bolt to be dead center on our mark there, and then if we look we should be able to see our line coming right through the center of each of our holes there, place our other bolt in here on the bottom, and of course you're going to want to use the hole that most closely matches your frame, so if your frame is a little bit narrower this way than what ours is, you'll use one of the holes above it.Now just snug those down by hand ensuring that our line is going right through the middle of our holes there, then we do the same thing on the other side. Now as we keep our brackets in place we don't want these to move around at all. We need to tighten down our bolts here. These use a 19 millimeter or a 3/4". We want to tighten them down evenly from the top to the bottom. It's best to use a wrench on the back side because if you start turning this bolt, it wants to move our bracket a little bit so we'll use our wrench to tighten the nut first, and then once we have them down there pretty snug we can use our torque wrench to get that final torque measurement that'll be found in your instructions.Now we'll get our L-brackets put in place. They're going to slide right on the two welded on bolts there. For our initial set up we're going to use the middle two holes. We'll leave these two open and these two open. We may need to adjust it slightly later, just going to take our nylon lock nuts, going to thread those on and snug them down. Those will also use a 19. All right, we'll do that on both sides.Now, that's our side bracket set up. That's what we need to do on our trailer. Of course, we'll need to torque everything down once we have all of our set up done. But the only kind of real difference to that is going to be in a coupler style. This is a top mount coupler, you can see it's mounted to the top of the frame. If you have one of the trailers that has a bottom mount coupler, instead of us mounting these frame brackets so that these bolts we're closer to the top, those frame brackets would be flipped over.By flipping those over, we'll have that single hole at the bottom. We'll have our multiple holes up here at the top, and that's going to position these down lower so when we install our L-bracket, we'd install it the same way using those center holes, it would just be lower to accommodate for that coupler.Okay, now as we move onto this step in our set up, it's going to be getting everything kind of fine tuned. We'll want to use the table that we have here in the instructions, so the tow vehicle loaded for a trip but still uncoupled from trailer, the distance from the ground and the inside of that fender well which we saw earlier was 40". Once we coupled the trailer without weight distribution it came up to 40-3/4". What we're looking to get back to is the halfway point between those two. So that's going to be 40-3/8". So, that 40-3/8" is our target. That's the intended point we want to get back to, so we'll set it up and see how that goes.All right, now to get our Trunnion bars in place, you can see the little keeper tab right here. We're going to slide that up, place the bottom in, rotate the top in and then let that come back in behind it, and at that point we're going to bring our trailer, get it coupled to the truck here and we'll start making any adjustments we might need.All right, now we'll extend the jack. This is going to lift both the trailer and the truck up slightly. You can see as we do that, see how our Trunnion bars are getting closer to our brackets there This makes it a lot easier to get these things connected. Now we'll use our tool there, just going to get our Trunnion bars up into place, take our keys, we'll slide those down in and then use our provided clips to keep them in place. We'll do that on the other side as well.All right, now we've relaxed everything we've allowed with our weight distribution bars locked in place. We've taken all the weight you can see off of that trailer jack. Now we need to go check our measurements again. Front wheel first, we're looking to be at most 40-3/8". If we're not there, we need to add more washers in. If we're anywhere below 40, which is exactly where we started and that would be ideal, well then we need to take some washers out, but as long as we're between 40 and 40-3/8", it's going to be exactly what we want.Now, once we've confirmed we've got everything where we want it, we want to come back and torque down our L-brackets here that would be listed in your instruction, the torque you want to hit, and also get the main 3/4" bolts in our head torqued.All right guys, now back up here at the front, you can see we are right at 40". That's absolutely perfect. Anytime you're able to use a system and get right back to that measurement, that's ideal. But like we said, we had 3/8" there to play with, but I'm happy it's right where it's at. Now, in this particular set up with a Ram 2500, I think this is a 2018 model, we used the 1,200 pound kit, 1,200 pound arms and we used seven washers in there, so if you are going to be doing it on a 3/4" tongue, if it's pretty close to that, it's going to give you a good starting point.Here at the back, we're looking at about 42-3/4", so we're within about 3/4 of an inch of where we wanted that to be. We're putting less pressure on this rear end, it's going to save a lot of life in these rear suspension components. With that being said, I know it's a lot of information, but in my opinion and a lot of our customers opinions, this is an excellent way to go. Get the weight limit or the weight setting that's appropriate for your application. I think you'll be very happy with it.

The hitch is great! I installed the FA92-00-0600 on my 2014 Acura MDX to pull my 2019 Geo Pro 19BH camper. It is night and day between the old and new hitch. Way less bounce and herky jerky when starting and stopping. Really pleased with the hitch. Installation was straight forward though it took a bit of time to dial in just right. You also need some big wrenches for sure. I also bought the ALL643216 socket to attach the EQ91-00-6100 hitch ball. The packaging left something to be desired. Part of the box was falling apart and things fell out of the box when I moved it off my doorstep. The hitch is almost 100 lbs so I'm not totally surprised, but this could be improved for sure. 654983

Very nicely made. Haven't towed with it yet- bought it to replace a regular WD hitch. Had an external friction sway control on my old hitch but didn't want to drill holes in my new trailer's aluminum tongue. Hopefully the built in sway control will work out, I like having no external parts. 524064

A year and several thousand miles later this system is still working great. It really keeps the sway under control, especially in heavy crosswinds. Easy to install, and even easier to connect/disconnect. I highly recommend this system. I pull a 3500# travel trailer with it. 497733

I bought this product to pull our 20' Winnebago Micro Minnie with our Honda Pilot. It works great and we have never had a bit of sway with it. I especially like the fact that I can back the trailer without removing the anti-sway control which would be a big headache in most situations. 561425

We do offer a head assembly carrying tool part # 303-HG-712. It is made by hitch grip and it grips around a 2 5/16 ball making it easier to carry around the head assembly of your weight distribution system.

The hitch was relatively easy to install once the ball got rolling, about 2 hours or so. Makes towing a breeze! Increased my connection clearance by 3"! Best part was the customer service provided by etrailer. Blew me away with attentive service due to a supply issue and was resolved with ease! I'd recommend this product to any towing person and that they purchase through etrailer. 263655

I purchased this for use with a Highlander Hybrid towing a 2700 lb trailer (unloaded). When loaded, rear suspension of TV would drop 2" or more measured at the rear wheel well. Installation required cutting slots into the trailer's top support tray (popup; holds the battery and propane tank) for the torsion bar support brackets. Once modified, do allow time for proper set up (a bit of trial and error with washers, bracket height, and hitch height -- each interacts with the other; not independent adjustments). Dramatic improvement in handling and ride once properly set up. The square trunnion bars are more expensive, but gives better ground clearance (required for my application). 4 stars for price with square bars; round bars 20 percent cheaper. 87004

High quality steel materials. Very good fabrication and welding. Box was badly damaged, not really a suprise, because this hitch is very heavy. A custom styrofoam box insert would help. Have not towed with this hitch yet, but it seems to be well-engineered. 672747

I actually did not put this on last year, I had some trailer issues and did not get this assembled. Now I will try, but I still do not go too far and finally go the hang of towing in various conditions. I will be assembling it before the summer is gone. I will comment that is so Heavy and I hope I get the correct one...for my situation. I feel confident with E trailer hlep that I did. I will review once I get it done 664942

Great product! Have used for 1 year now and pulled my small camper across the country. My camper is a single axle and I've always been concerned about cross winds and even blow outs causing me to loose control, but this unit controls the sway so well. Highly recommend! 568758

It works. We put a small trailer (Starcraft AR15) on a 2010 Tacoma. The top of the suspension system must be soft for an easy on-road ride, so the trailer really lowered the back of the truck and it swayed over bumps. The hitch is a little large for what we’re doing but the truck is level and the sway is gone. So, it works great. 518161

Used for a 15k cross-country trip towing a Winnebago 2106FBS. On road, it is a great help; it is imperative to pay attention to height and angle of hitch. If it is consistently difficult to leverage the friction bars, the installation must be tuned. Keep wrenches nearby for adjustments and tightening. Currently buying a new trailer and Fastway.... 487286

It is a well built very solid piece of equipment. Seems to do the job. Second day I towed it, I had a 15-20 cross wind and it was pretty stable. I could definitely feel the trailer behind me but I imagine it would have been very bad without sway control. I am pulling a 3000 lb travel trailer with a Toyota Highlander so it is important to have the anti-sway. The tow vehicle stays level with the weight distribution system in place. I had someone install it for me so I can't comment on the installation process. It does make some creaking noises when turning but I expect that is typical of all hitches with sway control. The shipping box was pretty beat up on arrival but nothing was broken. The only thing missing was the installation manual but that was available on the etrailer website. 481389

Etrailer was a great reference to use when I was doing the research on which weight distribution system to use on my R Pod trailer. Their website has very detailed information on just about any product you need for towing an RV. I also liked that they offer a price match policy on the hitch so I could buy make this purchase with total confidence. Definitely a great company to work with on your buying your RV supplies! 256892

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

I will update this review after I have installed the Weight Distribution system on my unit, but I wanted to give a special thank you to Vanessa who did an outstanding job of getting me a part that had broken out of the box during shipment. She did a great job of keeping me up to date on the status of my missing item. The item was very heavy and the packing it came in today was outstanding. Many thanks. 518453


Comments

The Weight Distribution system has been working great. I have had only one minor problem in that the L bracket hangers have bowed slightly which has caused the bottom of the hanger to shift to the rear of the trailer. I have torque the hanger bolts per the installation instructions. Since the bottom bolt of the hanger assembly does not touch the bottom of the trailer rail, I am going to try and add a spacer between it an the trailer rail to see if that alleviates the issue. Load sharing is great and I have never had the trailer sway on me at all. I am open to suggestions on other ways to solve this issue. By the way I am in the process of upgrading this unit for my new toy hauler. Going up to the 1,200 12,000 lb unit.

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. 566751

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. 496556

Works well but is noisier than when new. Wish there was something could be done to make it quieter.

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.

Just finished installation of the Fastway WDH on my Rpod 180 (approx 3200 lbs loaded) with my TV, Lexus RX350! I had a mechanic/camping friend do the installation. Pleased with everything so far - did a test ride and definitely feel (I think) a difference, TV feels more solid, not as bouncy and had zero sway when the tractor trailer passed us on the highway. I had numerous people in the camping/RV industry tell me I don't need a WDH but after extensive research, I think this will make a huge difference on towability and safety. I'm going to finish my analysis with another trip to the scales. Customer support at etrailer was awesome, great service, answered questions and very helpful. 563509

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! 411176

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.

This is a review of etrailer.com not the towing system. I ordered several items online Sunday morning, then realized I needed to change one. Their customer service starts at noon on Sundays. About 11 am I received an email stating that my order had been shipped - on a Sunday! An hour later I was on the phone with one of their "customer service" reps. Although she admitted that my order had not yet actually left the premises, she refused to have someone from shipping pull the order back in and make a change. Finally left me on hold until the line disconnected. And this is on a 2-day shipping that cost about $30 extra! After exhausting all possible options. I called back and had basically the same conversation wth another rep. I told them I was going to call the bank and file a dispute, and might even keep the order for spite. A few days later i received an email with a return shipping label. When the order arrived, I printed the label. It was for a 2 lb package. This order was 2 boxes and weighed almost 100 lbs! I refusef the order and am still waiting to hear from their customer service. Bank reversed the charges. etrailer is the WORST company I ever dealt with 399541

Very helpful salespeople. Products are priced competitively. Folks in the packaging department need to take more care - my hitch receiver had the powdercoat rubbed off in (3) places and the load leveling hitch destroyed the styrofoam packaging due to the heavy weight of the components. HEY, BUY SOME BUBBLE WRAP! It's cheap and does the trick. 569837

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. 517499


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.

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.

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. 236657

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. 453910

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs

  • Yes, you can use a weight distribution system on the Airstream Basecamp X and I do recommend this if the loaded weight of the trailer will be over half of that of the vehicle which is the general rule we use. I believe the compatibility issues you were seeing has to do with the short tongue and interference from the propane tank cover but I have a way around this. I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0600 with the 2" Hitch Ball part # EQ91-00-6080. The...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 2019 Jayco Jay Flight 195RB
  • The weight distribution system I recommend for your 2019 Jayco Jay Flight 195RB is the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0600. The reason I recommend this system for you is because of how well it functions and how easy it is to install. The Fastway e2 is one of the best systems on the market for the money and it does not require any drilling into the frame for installation like other systems can. It uses trunnion spring bars for optimal ground clearance which you will...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Drop with Fastway e2 System
  • Because the top of the receiver opening can have different size collars from hitch to hitch, we measure from the top of the inside opening to make sure it is consistent.

  • Is a Weight Distribution System Needed for a 3,000 Lb Trailer on a 2014 Ford F-150
  • In general, if the gross trailer weight (GTW) of the trailer is more than 50% of the vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) then the use of a weight distribution system is recommended. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your truck can be found on the white tag inside the drivers door jamb. From my research, this figure could vary between 6,450 lbs - 7,450 lbs which means even on the low end of the spectrum you would not see much benefit from installing a weight distribution...

  • Weight of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion # FA92-00-0600
  • Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Item # FA92-00-0600 weighs approximately 75 pounds when you add a ball such as # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch. Keep in mind that the weight of the weight distribution you use is not factored in to the total 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...

  • Upgrading Fastway e2 Weight Distribution from 6,000 lbs to 8,000 lbs
  • To upgrade your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0600 rated for 6,000 lbs to the 8,000 lbs system you will simply need part # FA92-01-0899.

  • How to Prevent Sway Control Issues When Towing a 3,000 Lb Travel Trailer
  • Although you do not have any issues with weight distribution, the best type of sway control we can offer you is in the form of a weight distribution system. For this, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution part # FA92-00-0600 which has two point sway control that will do an excellent job of minimizing the trailer sway you are experiencing on the highway. The only thing you need to use this system is a hitch ball like part # EQ91-00-6080. This system has a tongue weight capacity...

  • Choosing Between Two Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems
  • If your trailer's loaded tongue weight ends up at around 600 pounds I recommend going with the higher rated Fastway e2, part # FA92-00-0800. For one, if you go over the rated tongue weight the weight distribution system will not be able to do its job. Also, with weight distribution the amount of weight you have stored behind the tow vehicle's rear axle acts as tongue weight on the hitch. So this needs to be added to the loaded trailer's tongue weight and if you're already at 600 pounds...

  • How to Upgrade a Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System for a Heavier Trailer
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0600 that you referenced is likely the best weight distribution system for your needs. It has a tongue weight range of 250 lbs - 600 lbs which is likely where your towing setup falls. In order to be sure you may want to weigh the tongue weight of the loaded trailer and add that to any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I do not recommend using the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0800 with...

  • Weight Distribution and Hitch Extension for Truck Camper of 2019 Ford F-350 with 3 inch Hitch
  • The Torklift Cannon part # TLE1636 that you referenced was designed specifically to fit the 3 inch hitch of your 2019 Ford F-350 and is rated for use with weight distribution so it's a great solution for you and it also can be used with the Fastway kit part # FA92-00-0600 that you referenced. This extender weighs 82 lbs and the Fastway weighs 94 lbs. Both of these do not need to be factored as tongue weight though as technically they become part of the "hitch" according to the manufacturers....

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System and Tongue Weight for a 2005 Ford Explorer Limited V8
  • The towing capacity of your 2005 Ford Explorer Limited V8 is 3,260 lbs. The tongue weight according to your owners manual should not exceed 15%, so your absolute maximum tongue weight is 489 lbs. With that weight on your trailer, I definitely recommend using a weight distribution system with sway control. This will give you a smoother ride and keep the crosswinds and uneven lanes from causing you to panic. I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control #...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 3,700 Pound Travel Trailer
  • When picking out a weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your setup. This number includes both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (as if loaded and ready for a trip), along with any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your Tacoma. Ideally, this number will fall somewhere near the middle of the operating range for the system you choose. Using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline # 5780 is the most accurate...

  • Weight Distribution for a Trailer with 375 to 600 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Most weight distribution systems have a tongue weight capacity range that they will work with. If your tongue weight could exceed the 600 pound limit of Fastway system # FA92-00-0600 then you would want to go up to the next system which is # FA92-00-0800. It is rated for a minimum of 400 pounds tongue weight though. Less than that and the system will not be effective. But if the trailer is empty you likely would not even need to engage the spring bars. To choose a weight distribution...

  • Can I Upgrade My E2 Roundbar System With Higher Rated Bars
  • It is possible to upgrade your Fastway e2 Round bar weight distribution system by using higher rated spring bars. I assume you have the 600 lb system, part # FA92-00-0600, so you can upgrade to a 800 lb tongue weight or 1,000 lb tongue weight system. The bars to upgrade to a 800 lb system are part # FA94-02-0899 and the bars to upgrade to a 1,000 lb system are part # FA94-02-1099. The new bars fit into the existing head that you have.
