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

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway E-2 Weight Distribution system with 2-Point Sway Control, part number FA94-00-0600. That's going to be for 6,000 pound gross trailer weight, along with a 600 pound tongue weight. It's also available with an 8,000 pound gross trailer weight and 800 pound tongue weight using part number FA94-00-0800. Also available with 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and 1,000 pound tongue weight using part number FA94-00-1000.Now the way our weight distribution is going to work is it's going to take our tongue weight and it's going to evenly distribute all that weight between the axle on our trailer and the axle on our truck. Now this is going to give us a stable ride not only for our vehicle, but also for our trailer. Now this is going to allow for a smooth, level ride, and it's going to allow us to tow the maximum capacity allowed by our vehicle's hitch.

Now our weight distribution system is also going to have sway control built into it. It's going to have metal to metal contact, which is going to create friction causing less sway between our spring bar here and the bracket attached to the frame. That's going to be real nice when we're driving down the road and there's cross traffic, curvy roads, or anytime we need to make an evasive maneuver it's going to keep our trailer in track with our vehicle in it's nice line.We already talked about it having built in sway control. Compared to the styles that use chains, those are going to rely on a separate component that you're going to have to install on your trailer to achieve that. Our system is also going to come with an adjustable shank.

Now in our position we have it on the drop position, but you can also put it in the rise position to ensure that your trailer is going to be nice and level when you're towing down the road. The shank is going to work with two inch by two inch receiver tube openings. Our weight distribution system is going to feature a round bar style opposed to the trunnion style, which makes it a little bit easier to install. Getting them in place or taking them out is simple. You just come to this spring clip here, and we can pull out, and the bar will come right out.Compared to other weight distribution systems, our Fastway is going to weigh about anywhere from 12 to 15 pounds less than others, which is going to make installation just that little bit easier and make it easier on your back.

Our system is even going to come with a tool to help us get our spring bars in place so we don't have to fight them. Simply take the hook, hook it around the spring bar itself, and we can take this tab, put it in the hole, and rotate the bar up so we can get our spring bar in place. What I really like about this weight distribution system is the fact that I don't have to drill into anything. Everything is going to use brackets that are going to sandwich in between the frame of our trailer, or it's going to hook up into the hitch and we're not going to have to worry about welding or any kind of cutting.Our weight distribution system is going to feature a steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish to resist corrosion and rust. All of the features that we've gone over so far are all going to apply to all three weight capacities of our Fastway E-2 systems.

With everything hooked up, let's go ahead and take our truck and trailer and see how it handles.Once I pulled it out I can tell you I feel the difference. Going around the turns it genuinely feels like the trailer wants to come back in line with my truck and track right behind it. It genuinely just feels like it's a smaller trailer than it is, and just feels a lot more stable and safe.That will finish up our look at the Fastway E-2 Weight Distribution System.

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 installed the Fastwaye 2600 lb. on a Chev. Colorado for a R-Pod trailer that weighs 2900 lbs unloaded. I only used one washer for minimum weight distribution. I hauled the trailer 1,500 miles back home without weight distribution and just took it on a 400 + mile trip with the new Fastway. There is a nice noticeable improvement in less trailer sway especially in cross winds and when traveling 65 mph on the freeway. The installation was straight forward and we're very please with the quality of the hitch. 390434

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

I purchased a 2018 Coachman Apex Nano 17X with a max of 6,000 lb. trailer weight. I pull the trailer with a 2018 Chevy Silverado 4x4 1/2T crewcab. I did a internet search for a weight distribution with sway control when I ran across etrailer.com. Viewing the information on the Fastway e2 weight distribution w/2 point sway control I found this system to easy to install and use instead of the chain systems. I purchase the 600 lb. system, it was easy to install and its easy to use. This system does a great job distributing weight between my truck and trailer and works nicely with trailer sway. I would recommend this system over a chain system. 525715

Never had a Weight Distribution/Sway bar before, so this is our first experience. We have a 20ft Winnie Drop (Winnebago) that starts to sway around 55mph. Instructions were easy to follow and everything was done in a little over an hour. The tool provided to insert the sway bars is needed and it takes someone strong to lift them into place. That was the hardest part of the installation. Our first test run around town required some adjustment, but second test run was great. We feel pleased with the product and confident that our future camping adventures are going to be safe ones. 289618

I didn't have time to install this prior to leaving on a camping trip so paid someone to install it for me so cannot speak about installation. I find it's very quick and easy to hook my trailer up to my van. Works well and sway control is fantastic. Would definitely recommend it. 402572

I am a manufacturing engineer with experience in heavy forging operations. All of our shop floor equipment had to be robust in order to survive. I learned to appreciate well designed and well made machinery and equipment. The E2 weight distribution kit you sold me fits that category. I have it installed and I am pleased with it's performance. 80239

Great sway control for 3500# travel trailer towed behind full-size pickup truck. Easy to install if you have the right tools. Does not come with a hitch ball, you can purchase the right size for a reasonable price that fits your trailer. The bars do creak when you are parking but I suppose I could grease them (where they attach to the trailer) but that could get messy during disassembly. I have had to tighten the bolts a few times, but that is expected after a bunch of miles of towing. 635215

I have about 3000 towing miles on the Fastway and have to say it has made all of the difference. Before I used and regular hitch with an anti-sway bar. This hitch is so much better than that setup. You can backup with it and, with the right tools make slight changes at the campsite. Never a hint of sway in wind, rain and some of the worst traveling conditions I have been in. 70mph fully loaded, no problem. I will say this hitch is very noisy. Pull into a campground late at night and you will wake people up, but its ability to pull easily outweighs that minor issue. 504999

Well written instructions for installation. Good design and product quality. Very happy with the way it pulls. Allows for backing up trailer. You would have gotten 5 stars except your packaging or shipping methods need to be reviewed. My shipment arrived broken open with hardware pieces missing.

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


Great for safe towing! Use this on my flat bed racecar hauler, about 6k# total and my 1/2 ton Yukon feels like a 3/4 ton. Follow directions to setup properly and it feels great. Note that I had to put the car a few inches rearward after the hitch because of how it distributes the weight. Also for GM vehicles with stabilitrak, Puch the button and release once to turn off traction control, then hold it down until stabilitrak turns off or else it will disable itself and bark at you for half a dozen drives after the hitch is removed. 615782

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

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

The noise you're hearing is the metal on metal friction that occurs between the spring bars and the trailer frame brackets. This is what prevents the trailer from swaying. Unfortunately, the noise is unavoidable as any lubrication added would render the sway control ineffective.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2013 Forest River R-Pod 177
  • A weight distribution system is a good idea anytime there is a noticeable drop on the rear suspension of your vehicle. It is also a good idea if you are experiencing any sway to help minimize that trailer wander with wind gusts and passing traffic. Your 245 lb dry tongue weight along with 36 gallon fresh water tank will double that weight. The Curt MV Weight Distribution System # C17050 you referenced will help with the distribution and reduce sag but will not help at all with...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
  • A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 21-Ft Trail Lite Camper
  • 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...

  • Recommendation on a Weight Distribution System Tongue Weight 400 lbs and GTW 4000
  • I have a solution for you. Since you supplied some approximate weights to work with, I can give you a couple general recommendations on a weight distribution system. Looking at the numbers you gave me, if your tongue weight will be between 450 to 550 lbs, then your going to want a tongue weight range between 400-600 lbs. At this tongue weight range, I recommend the Equalizer Weight Distribution w/ 4 Point Sway control, # EQ37060ET. The Equalizer system has a tongue weight range of...

  • Weight Distribution and Brake Controller Recommendation for 2006 Toyota Sequoia
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. So your trailer would most likely...

  • Best Weight Distribution System for a Jayco Hummingbird 17 RK
  • In order to choose the correct weight distribution system, you will need to find the total tongue weight (TTW) of your towing setup by adding the tongue weight (TW) of both your loaded ready to tow trailer and any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. An easy way to find this would involve using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780. When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want your total tongue weight to fall in...

  • Weight Distribution with or without sway control
  • First of all, thank you for your service. If is recommended to use a weight distribution (WD) system and sway control if your trailer weighs at least half of the weight of the tow vehicle. On bigger pickups you could probably get away without needing either but since you are using a 2007 Chevy Colorado I do recommend with having a device to combat rear sag in your pickup and trailer sway. Unless you will be making a really sharp turn to park your trailer you should be able to use...

  • Comparing Equalizer, Fastway e2, Reese Steadi-Flex and Reese SC Weight Distribution Systems
  • The Equalizer system part # EQ37060ET of the four that you mentioned would be the nicest/best setup to use. The Equalizer systems are regarded by many as the nicest around and are a favorite among RVers. It has 4 points of friction sway control which work very well. 2 in the head and 2 at the hangers. The e2 # FA94-00-0600 system is basically an entry level version of the Equalizer and wouldn't have as effective of a sway control system. It has two points of sway control at the hangers. The...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 500 lbs Tongue Weight
  • Between the three listed the part # FA94-00-0600 is the best for a loaded tongue weight of 540 lbs give or take. That being said the best option is the part # RP66083 as it has a tongue weight range that would work perfectly as well but features sway control that works to fight sway before it starts. For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.

  • Best Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System For A Loaded Trailer Weight Of 5000 Lbs.
  • In order to determine the correct weight distribution system for your towing setup, you will need to calculate the tongue weight of your loaded ready to tow trailer and any weight stored behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. This will give you the total tongue weight needed to find the best weight distribution system. I recommend using a tongue weight scale such as the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale part # 5780 to find this. For a total tongue weight of 400-800 lbs. I recommend...

  • Towing Set Up for a 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • To tow your 2014 Coachmen Clipper BH, you will need a Hitch # 75270, Weight Distribution System # FA94-00-0600 and a Brake Controller # 90885 to power your Clipper's Electric Drum Brakes. I recommend the Draw-Tite Hitch # 75270 for your 2016 Honda Odyssey because it is the best value and you are able to use a weight distribution system with this hitch. With a weight distribution system you can tow 5,000 lbs. and it has a tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs. But you will not want to exceed...

  • Troubleshooting Rust on L-Brackets of Fastway Weight Distribution System
  • There really isn't a great way to prevent rust on brackets of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round # FA94-00-0600. You are right that the bare steel needs to remain bare in order to have the friction needed for the system to function correctly, so I recommend simply covering the brackets when the system isn't in use and replacing the brackets with # FA93-02-5150 as needed. This is the first I've heard of this issue, but it makes sense that you would want...

  • Choosing Between A Fastway Weight Distribution System With Round Bars Or Trunnion Bars
  • One of the major differences between a round bar system and a Trunnion bar system is if ground clearance is an issue, you may be better off choosing a Trunnion-bar system simply because these bars slide into the weight distribution head instead of inserting into it from the bottom, thus maintaining a more streamline system.The round-style spring bars slide up into the head and are held in place with clips. The round bar on # FA94-00-0600 extends about 2-1/2 inches below the weight distribution...

  • Comparing Fastway E2 Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitches
  • The ground clearance difference between Fastway round bar and trunnion bar weight distribution systems is about an inch at the head so it isn't much at all. And since you need to have it set up in the rise position you could go either way and have decent ground clearance. If it were me though I would still go with the trunnion system, # FA92-00-0600, for 2 reasons. First inserting the trunnion bars into the head is easier compared to round bar systems (though neither one is all that...
