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 Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - FA92-00-1000 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System with two-point sway control. This unit is going to evenly distribute weight over the axles of your tow vehicle and trailer for better stability and better control. Ultimately a weight distribution system is going to help create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. Now this one is going to feature your two-point of integrated sway control, which is going to limit side-to-side movement of the trailer. It's going to use steel on steel friction which is going to help minimize sway that's usually caused by winds, curvy roads, or sudden maneuvers. The unit does not come with any lift chains. It's not needed for this system so that way the spring bars aren't able to move freely so it really strives to always keep the trailer in line.

These brackets keep the spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds the trailer in line at all times. The unique design makes the system compatible with surge type brake actuators. The trunnion spring bars are made from steel. They've got a nice coated finish on it so they're not going to rust or corrode and they're designed to flux appropriately even over uneven terrain which is still going to offer a nice controlled, quiet, even ride without the bounce. When it comes to getting the unit installed here on your frame mounts, it's a no drill installation so these are going to be clamp on brackets that can be adjusted along the trailer frame to accommodate frame mount accessories such as gas tanks, tool boxes, or generators. These are going to fit frame heights up to six inches.

They've got the multi-hole design so that way they can be adjusted as necessary. When it comes to getting the proper tilt here at your head assembly, that's going to be achieved with the traditional washer design. The unit is going to come with the spacer rivet that will get installed between the head assembly and the upper bar of the shank or the upright bar of the shank. There is a hole right here for the spacer rivet to get installed in and it's going to have the washer design so that way you can add or remove washers from that spacer rivet to get the required or appropriate tilt for your application. Again, the unit is made from steel. It's got a nice powder-coated finish so it's durable, it's long-lasting, and it's going to be rust and corrosion resistant. I also want to mention this tool right here.

This is your snap up lever. When you're installing this there is a lot of tension sometimes that is applied to these bars and we don't want you to ever have to get those in place by hand. What they do is they include this snap up lever. It basically has a unique design that allows you to grab onto the bar, rotate it up, plenty of length so that way you're a safe distance away, and it just gives you the proper leverage that you need to get your trunnion bars up onto the lift brackets and fully installed. Now the system is going to come with everything that you see here on the table. It's also going to come with your detailed installation instructions and owner's manual.

You're going to get a 5/8 inch diameter pin that's going to come with a clip to secure the unit inside of your hitch, the large bolts right here, and the washers and the nuts. These are going to be the hardware that gets the head assembly attached to that adjustable shank. Then you're going to get your spacer rivet and you're going to get some washers there to again get the proper tilt that you need in the head assembly. It's going to come with all of the brackets and hardware necessary to get it attached to your trailer frame. Now your hitch ball is sold separately. If you're in need of one you can check out some options here at etrailer.com. This is going to give us an opening of 1 1/4 inch so you need to make sure that the hitch ball you chose has a 1 1/4 inch diameter shank. With this unit we're looking at a maximum ton weight of one thousand pounds with a maximum gross towing weight of ten thousand pounds. It's designed for 2 inch x 2 inch trailer hitch receivers that are rated for use with weight distribution systems. The adjustable shank on the unit is a solid steel construction so it's not hollow back here. I do want to mention just a few measurements on the unit real quick. It can be used in the either the drop or rise positions. I have it shown in the rise position today. I just want to give you some length measurements here of this adjustable shank. The overall length, measuring from very front to very back, gives us a measurement of 12 inches. I also took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most point of the bar and that's 9 inches. To the center of the adjustment holes is 8 inches and to the back of the upright bar is 7 inches. This adjustable shank is going to feature a six hole design and those holes are going to be separated on center by 1 1/14 inch so it allows for some adjustability there to get that head up and down. Now when it comes to the drop or rise, with the shank in the rise position and the head assembly at the highest setting, it's going to give us a maximum rise of 6 3/8 of an inch. That's measuring from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. Flip it over to the drop position and lower the head assembly at the lowest setting. It's going to give us a maximum drop of 1 5/8 of an inch. Again, that would be from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform or the inside top edge of the receiver tube of the hitch to the top of the ball platform. Fastway does a really great job with this weight distribution system. They're going to put a 10 year warranty on it and again, it's just a really nice, solid design. Last thing I want to mention is just how the bars connect inside of the head assembly. There's going to be slots down here at the bottom and then the bars are going to have little nibs on there. You put the nibs inside that slot, rotate the bar, and it's got this latch mechanism up here that holds the bar securely in place inside the head assembly. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System with two-point sway control.

Fantastic hitch but make sure you take some time to get it set up. I had to assemble/disassemble/reassemble it a few times to get it set up correctly. Also, I had to go to my local trailer shop to properly torque the hitch ball. Not only did I not have a 1 7/8" socket, but I couldn't torque it to 450ft lbs. Now that it is installed and dialed it it works great. 268668

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


I have had this hitch/weight distribution setup for a year now and I am very pleased. The trailer hookup is a simple process and the trailer is level. The built in sway control seems to be doing the trick, no issues. I am pulling a 29' Nash 25c with a GVW of 8500 lbs with a 2012 Tundra Crewmax. 605486

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

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

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

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

The pole tongue adapter and Fastway E2 hitch work great together. Instructions are straight forward and easy to follow. I put it together following the basic setup and it didn't need much adjustment. I could recommend this setup for anyone. Our ice castle has a hydralic frame which you can use to hook the spring bars up. It greatly improved the ride, steering and handling of the rig. I also have a set of Air Lift 1000 in the rear (previously ordered from etrailer). They work great in conjunction with this hitch. And further add adjustability to the setup. 421007

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

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 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.

Awesome shipping on Etrailers part! I love this hitch for the ease of setup and to take a part. There are arguments that the bend in the bars comprimises the strentgh of the set up but these are only rated for a certain weight anyways! These bars make absolutely no noise if properly lubed in the head and bars are level with the trailer. They do an awesome job with the W/D and the sway control! Easy enough that my wife can hook up and tear down! Highly recommended! 58261

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

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.

Has worked real good for a first time puller. Self installed, with a little help from the pros, but easy hook up and go. Feels real nice on the road, but not real familiar with pulling a trailer without one. Much better to buy and install than the fortune the dealer wanted to charge me. 334506

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.

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

  • Choosing Between Fastway e2 and Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System for 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL RV
  • The Curt TruTrack # C17500 and the Fastway e2, part # FA92-00-1000 are very similar. Both are rated for up to 1000 lb of tongue weight or 10,000 lbs of gross trailer weight. Both are covered by a 10 year warranty. The Curt TruTrack includes the 2-5/16 inch trailer ball, while the Fastway system would use a # EQ91-00-6100 ball that's sold separately. If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the TruTrack because the tilt of the ball is easier to adjust, and because its weight distributing...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for Pulling Car Hauler Trailer with Varying Weight Loads
  • The key for a weight distribution system to properly move trailer tongue weight forward to the tow vehicle's front axle is to match the system to the trailer's fully-loaded tongue weight. Systems rated too low will not have enough tension to redistribute the trailer weight forward and systems rated too high for the actual tongue weight can result in jumpy or erratic handling. In addition to your trailer's measured tongue weight you need to include in the equation the weight of anything...

The difference between the two is that the # FA92-00-1000 uses trunion spring bars and # FA94-00-1061 uses round spring bars. There isn't much advantage either way except trunion bars connect to the head by sliding directly into it and round bars come in from the bottom. The benefit is that...
