Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Steel brackets do a good job of holding trailer in line to limit sway
  • Works with surge brakes and lets you back up without having to disconnect anything, unlike bar-style sway controls

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Steel-on-steel brackets can create a lot of noise, especially during turns
  • With no friction or tension built into the head, there's still the chance for sway, especially with larger trailers
  • You'll have to buy the hitch ball separately
Two points of steel-on-steel friction work to prevent and correct trailer sway in this weight distribution system. Sway control brackets help to ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Adjustable shank included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Fastway.

Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.


Fastway e2 Sway Control

The two points of sway control within the e2 are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. Most traditional weight-distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system.


The direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the e2 system helps to stop sway once it has begun. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the e2 uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway-control system.

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.

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.

Our friends (who had a large Roo trailer) recommended that we get he Equalizer E2 trunnion hitch for our 26-foot Jayco mated to our F150. Everything has been great. It is easy to hook up and disconnect, and when pulling, the trailer is stable and we have had no swaying of any kind. Our [retailer] tech installed it, and we are totally happy with it. 348753

The only reason I am giving this four stars instead of five is the adjustability of the hitch. For my vehicle, the hitch was either way too high or low, so there is a "watch out" here. I chose for it to be lower, without getting a specially drilled bracket (weekend warrior hauling doesn't justify that). In general, it was extremely easy to install and the instructions were straight forward however they were contradictory with height measurements. First it talks about wanting to put the tow vehicle height halfway between the unhitched height and the initial hitched height, but then it states to put the final heights back to the original measurements. Being an engineer and thinking about it, as well as looking at instructions from other manufacturers, you want the tow vehicle to be as close to the unhitched height as possible. You do NOT want to overcompensate, though. Once I figured that out, it was a piece of cake to set up. Again, easy to install, easy to hitch, easy to set and unset the torsion bars (using your tongue jack to take the weight off helps a bunch), great sway control, and great weight distribution (if it is set up well). Make certain you always keep the trunion pivot pins well greased to avoid wear, so buy a tube or two of grease and keep it with the hitch. 525696

E2 weight distribution/anti-sway system arrived right on time. The PET was easy to follow and the unit was easy to install. I had to make some slight modifications to my travel trailer to make it fit. I followed the step by step instructions to adjust the unit and just pulled it to the lake camp sight. It performed incredibly well, and the difference before and after is unbelievable! 504341

The hitch was more difficult to install than anticipated. We needed to purchase a larger than typical wrench to get the job done. What took most of the time was the adjustments rather than the physical attaching. Make sure you are careful with your measurements! Overall I am very pleased with the product. It definitely helps produce a smoother ride. 381310

This hitch set up was perfect for us. We have a small 21 foot travel trailer and pull it with a standard 2013 1500 Silverado. The hitch did its job lifting the rear of the truck to level. Great sway control. I highly recommend it. When we eventually go with a bigger set up, I WILL be buying this brand again. 508769

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. 665436

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 YouTube Video for clarification on the install. 756249

Love this set up. Takes a bit of getting used to when hooking up/unhooking, but it works well. Having a power tongue jack helps with the raising and lowering required to get the sway bars on and off the brackets. 707370

I purchased this unit for my daughter and son-in-law after they purchased their first RV trailer. I've had a little experience with WDH (weight distribution hitch) and highly recommended and explained this one for them. Installation was straight forward with the simple to understand directions. The balancing of the units went easy after viewing the video at etrailer.com. I feel better knowing they will be traveling safe with this combination sway control and WDH. 477540

Good Product and great service. The order was received quickly and exactly as ordered. The hitch installation was well documented and was easily completed (after purchasing a few larger wrenches). Using this on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee pulling a 2horse bumper pull trailer. So far, it seems to make the trailer more stable, although I have yet to haul it with both horses loaded. 229253

The dealer installed the hitch when we picked up the new trailer. They made it look easy. Since we pulled away from the lot we have had no issues. Our first trip was 1200 miles over numerous mountain passes in OR, CA & NV. Easy to connect. I'd recommend this hitch to anyone. 103898

Review from a similar Fastway 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. 593977

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution Hitch


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. 719708

  • Bike Rack For Use With Trailer on Weight Distribution Hitch
    A dual hitch adapter won't work for you because even if there was an adapter rated for the amount you needed, an adapter will slice your hitch capacity by 50 percent. Your best option, if you do not want to haul bikes behind your trailer, is the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756. This rack fits around jacks with up to 2-1/4" outer tube diameter and 22-1/2" clearance; it has an 80 lb weight capacity and holds your bikes by the wheels. Apart from this your best bet is...

  • When to Upgrade the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    When choosing the best weight distribution system for your trailer you will want your total tongue weight (TTW) which is composed of the loaded ready to tow weight of the trailer by any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle to fall in the middle of the weight distribution system's capacity. This will allow for the most effective distribution of tongue weight and control of trailer sway. With a total tongue weight (TTW) of 992 lbs not including the water tank you plan to...

    In order to select the correct Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control for your travel trailer you are going to need to find your total tongue weight (TTW). The total tongue weight (TTW) is composed of both the loaded ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer and any weight stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Based on this, I recommend part # FA92-00-1000 as long as your total tongue weight (TTW) is between 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs. Please keep in mind that the...

  • Weight Distribution for Travel Trailer Towed by 2014 Nissan Frontier
    Most Class III and above trailer hitches have a higher capacity weight rating with the use of weight distribution on the trailer. I cannot tell you what the weight distribution towing capacity of the hitch on your Frontier is but if the trailer hitch is rated for weight distribution the tongue weight capacity may be higher than 610 lbs. However, the use of a weight distribution system on the trailer will not lower the trailer's tongue weight. The good news, you do not have to factor the...

    Based on my research your 2018 Shasta Oasis 18BH trailer has a GVWR of 4,750 pounds, which is the most it can weigh when fully loaded. When picking out a weight distribution system the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your setup, which includes the loaded tongue weight of the trailer plus any added cargo weight you have behind the rear axle of your F-150. Ideally this number will fall near the middle of the operating range on the system you choose. Using...

    The trailer coupler on your Forest River Rockwood Geo Pro G19FD is a top mount otherwise known as an overslung coupler.

  • What is the Difference Between Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems

Trunnion bars are typically designed to be used with heavier weight applications, and easier to install than round bars. Trunnion bars typically offer more ground clearance as well.

  • Should I Use Spacers When Installing the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    The spacer rivet along with the washers are very important pieces of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System.

Since your trailer will be on the heavier side of the towing capacity of your 2002 Jeep Liberty you are going to want to be able to use weight distribution if at all possible. To accomplish that you can replace the Curt hitch you have with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75128 which is rated for weight distribution and would be a great solution. This way you don't have to return anything and you'll have the best towing setup available for your 2002 Jeep Liberty.

  • What Typically Causes Trailer Sway and Will Weight Distribution System Prevent It
    If you are experiencing persistent sway at highway speeds your real issue is most likely trailer loading. You need to move the weight of any cargo forward if at all possible so that the tongue weight is between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight. The other possible contributing factor for sway is worn out suspension components which you can find by inspecting the setup and fixing as needed.

  • Do Spring Bars on Weight Distribution System Need to be Parallel?
    The trunnion bars on your weight distribution system do need to be parallel to the ground in order to operate properly. The goal of a weight distribution system is in part to help stop sag, however, so I would double check just to ensure everything was installed properly, including having the correct head tilt. I know it's a pain to have to do that, but air bags should really only be supplemental to your weight distribution and not used as a way to significantly reduce sag if you are...
