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 with 2 Point Sway Control Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with a 2-Point Sway Control. It offers an 8,000lb gross trailer weight and a 800lb tongue weight. Part number FA92-00-0800. So you've decided you need a weight distribution system. The Fastway e2 is not only a weight distribution, it has integrated sway control. It evenly distributes weight over the axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer for stability and control. Additional steel on steel friction from the two integrated points of sway control limit side to side movement of the trailer. Traditionally, sway control operates on one of the trailer.

But here, we have it on the drivers side and the passengers side. There are no chains so the trunnion bars can't move freely from side to side. They are, however, able to flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a more controlled even ride without bounce. It's a no drill installation, the link plates bolt around our trailers A-frame and the L-brackets bolt to the outside. The system comes with everything you see here. An adjustable weight distribution shank with a pin and clip to get it installed.

A weight distribution head, with all the hardware to get it installed, you will, however, have to purchase your own hitch ball. You just need to make sure it has 1" shank. Two trunnion bars attach to the head socket, those sit on our included L-bracket and the L-pin keeps it in place. The whole thing is made out of a powder coated steel construction, so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. Not that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how it works. I've gone ahead and disconnected my weight distribution, lets go ahead and get a measurement of our vehicles stock height. Here in the back, I'm measuring from the ground to the underside of the wheel well, and I've got about 41".

Here in the front, I'm taking the same measurement, I've got about 39". We want to be sure and record these measurements because these are the measurements we want to get back to when we hook up our weight distribution. I've gone ahead and hooked up our trailer, without weight distribution, just to show you how it affects the tow vehicle. Here at the rear we're going to take the same measurement as before, as you can see we're squatting about 2". Here at the front, we've raised up about 1". Without having weight distribution, all this extra tongue weight can cause issues with your traction, handling and tire wear. Which is very unsafe for the road.

Now that we've got our weight distribution head hook back up, we're going to engage it with our included tool. We're just going to put the looped end underneath the trunnion bar, we'll make sure that the hook portion sits right into this opening here. Then, we'll want to pick up on the handle. Once we've got our trunnion bars engaged on both sides, we can take our included L-pin, slip it in place and our weight distribution and sway control is engaged. Here at the rear, we're back to stock height. We want to get as close as possible back to this. Here at the front we're perfect. Lets walk you through the set up. First off we're going to make sure that our trailer and tow vehicle are fully loaded and in line with each other and ready to go. You'll also want to make sure that your trailer is sitting level. The shank can be installed in either the rise or drop position, we've got it in the drop position here. We'll need to make sure that the head assembly is installed to where the hitch ball is no more than an inch higher than your level trailer's coupler. To set the tilt of the head, it uses a traditional washer system. The more tilt the more weight is alleviated from the tongue weight. A little tilt here at the head gives us a lot of tilt back here, giving us more lift. If we've used all the included washers, and we're still not getting the appropriate lift, then we can adjust our L-brackets. One thing to keep in mind, is when you're installing your link plates on your trailers A-frame, they need to be between 27" and 30" from the center of your trailer's coupler. You may have to relocate your propane tanks, or your battery boxes. We'll also need to be sure that our trunnion bars stick out at least 3" from the center of the L-pin. One last thing we'll want to be sure of is that our trunnion bars are parallel with the bottom of our trailer's A-frame. That's going to complete our look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with a 2-Point Sway Control. It offers an 8,000lb gross trailer weight and a 800lb tongue weight. Part number FA92-00-0800.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

Installed on a T&B camper trailer being towed by a Mazda CX5. Is a fairly straightforward install as long as you follow the well-written directions carefully. Being slow and methodical it took me all afternoon. On a test drive it seems to tow well. Note that the removable hitch is fairly heavy (weight-wise) and requires some creativity on where and how to store it when not in use (I keep it in the trailer or the house, not in the car). 572114

Got the hitch in 2 days, installed it via instructions and a few videos. No problems, works as advertised, usual awesomeness from etrailer. Installed it on a 5K pound 27 foot travel trailer, hitch weight 550... towing with '07 Tundra, 5.7L, pulls like a champ. 493707

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

This system works great for me. I have a Nissan Frontier and 21 foot TT. If you install this yourself make sure you watch every video and then follow the written instructions provided. You cant go wrong. This leveled my truck out and planted the front wheels firmly back on the ground. One word of warning. If you are parking your trailer on an incline and the truck and trailer aren't level move to a level spot, remove the bars and then back it in. Just makes getting the bars off easier. 570572

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

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

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

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. 553310

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


Works great, setup was easy and the stability it added was awesome. The campers has twice the service area as the tow vehicle, and even in crazy hurricane season winds in Florida I didn't sway in the least. The unit itself is an awkward shape and I had a hard time installing the ball. There is not enough room to use a standard socket to tighten the nut, and using wrenches was time consuming and aggravating so one star for that. Once your past that hurdle though it is a great product and recommended. 484610

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


I am very happy with my transaction with this company. From start to finish I was treated with respect and was helped by some very knowing people. I have not used my hitch yet but it appears to be a quality product. It should be packaged a little better for shipping because it appears to have broken open during shipping and was taped up . However there was nothing missing. Very satisfied customer. 406527

All though I have hardly gotten to use the hitch I am very please with it. I have installed it on my 2013 1985 Lance TT being pulled with a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. e-trialer has been great the customer rep handling my order expedited my order, without being asked, and the hitch was delivered to me in Oregon in 6 days, just in time for the delivery of my new TT. etrailer had the lowest price for the hitch and thanks to the free shipping it came in under anyone else. Thank you keep up the great work. Chuck 68518

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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.

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

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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

I like the hitch very well made good quality product. The instal was easy good directions . Test drive trailer handled very good big improvement. I felt a little to much weight on the truck. Removed one washer spacer. Test drove again it still handled well. I will be taking first long trip next week will know better then. Thank you for good service. Leo T. 55015

I don't have my trailer yet as I'm still waiting for my order to come in, but I wanted to have everything in place before it arrived. 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 never had any problems with this WD System. Everything went together rather smoothly and it seems to work as intended. It is very heavy, received the product in the mail in it's original box which was tore up pretty good. They should have packaged the hitch better, like inside of another box at least. It seems the paint will eventually come off pretty easily , so touching it up with some spray paint will be in order to maintain the hitch from rusting. 250777


Comments

Ive only used the hitch a couple of times within a year of owning it. The tool that has the hook on the end that is used to lift the stabilizing bars onto the hitch bends way to easy, it needs to be made out of stronger or thicker medal. One of the metal latches that hold the stabilizer bars in the socket broke off. The weld that held the pin that holds the latch broke off. But other then that it still works.

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. 86110

Product is good - heavy. Instruction book leaves something to desire. Makes reference to Spacer Washers but has no picture of where they go. Not enough pics to understand all parts. Have not used product yet but seems very high quality. BTW delivery was awful! Came 5 days after it was stated to be delivered. Big brown co did awful job. Too bad etrailer can't use FX. They are soooo much better. I won't order anything else because of delivery mess. 512391

The washers act as a fine adjustment for the tilt of the weight distribution head. The more washers added to the stud, the further rearward the head tilts. If you use the provided link, you can see an install/set-up video that will walk you through the process.

Item was suggest to me but, the etrailer salesperson never bothered to explain the I needed a thin wall 1-7/8" socket to install the hitch ball. This socket costs an extra $50 from etrailer and more from others. I had to modify my socket (which was expensive but not $50+) in order to install the ball. I feel I should have been informed of this issue before. 414198

Hitch has been a great help with sway and bounce. Its made towing a lot more comfortable. I only wish I was told about the tight fit for the hitch ball nut access

This hitch set up made all the difference in the world when compared to the previous heavy duty hitch with only a single sway control arm. No additional sway control was necessary, and the trailer now rides perfectly level and feels at one with the truck. etrailer helped me pick the best hitch for my needs out of the ones available. Much appreciated, and great service, as always! Thanks so much... 484939

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • What is the Difference Between Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
  • The round or trunnion bars refers to the end of the spring bars. Round bars are typically designed for lighter applications, are a bit harder to install and are usually priced lower than trunnion bars. 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. I attached an FAQ article on weight distribution for you to check out.

  • Can 2016 Toyota 4Runner w/ 4700lb Tow Rating Tow 4550lb Lance Travel Trailer
  • As long as the fully loaded and ready to tow weight of the trailer is less than the 4700 lb towing capacity of your 4Runner, you can tow the trailer as long as the factory installed hitch has sufficient capacity. The hitch should have a ratings sticker affixed to it that lists its capacity. I'd strongly recommend you install a transmission cooler like # D13503 to provide protection for the transmission. Since you're so close to the towing capacity of the vehicle itself, I'd do my best...

  • Recommended Complete Towing Setup For 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan With Weight Distribution For Camper
  • Your understanding of the GVWR is correct...it is the total loaded weight of the trailer and the cargo. For your 2013 Grand Caravan, I do suggest a weight distribution system along with sway control because you are very close to your max capacity with this vehicle. Let's start at the beginning since you weren't clear if the small cargo trailers you've towed were with this vehicle. If you don't have a trailer hitch receiver, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With 600-Lb Tongue Weight
  • The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big...

  • Replacement Parts for Old Reese Weight Distribution System
  • The head in the picture is the Reese # RP54980 however the trunnion spring bars to fit are no longer available. Unfortunately, your best bet may be to replace the entire system. If an 800 pound rated system is enough for you I recommend the Fastway e2 # FA92-00-1000. It uses brackets for the spring bars so you don't need to mess with chains. You'll need a hitch ball to go with it so use # 63840 for a 2-5/16 inch ball or # EQ91-00-6080 for a 2 inch ball. With that being said you...

The difference between your dry trailer weight and the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is 2,685 lbs. Since the GVWR is the max weight that your 2007 Fleetwood Pegasus Ultralite can weigh that means you have to take a lot of cargo with you.

  • When to Upgrade the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System

I recommend checking your printed owner's manual or with Ford to verify this. I also found that you're required to use a weight distribution system when towing over 3,500 pounds.

  • Troubleshooting E2 Weight Distribution Hitch Sway Issues
  • It sounds like the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0800 or # FA92-00-0800 is the correct system for your 1/2 full trailer but not for your loaded trailer. You want a system rated for total tongue weight which includes the tongue weight of your trailer and any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your F-150. That total tongue weight will ideally be in the middle of the range of your weight distribution system, so your Fastway e2 is not the correct system for your needs. For a 1000 lb e2 upgrade...

Based on the 800 to 1,000 lb tongue weight of your trailer I would recommend a weight distribution system with a tongue weight rating of 1,500 lbs.
