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.

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

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 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

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

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

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

Installation was easy provided you have access to the right tools. The hitch itself required sockets/wrenchs that are larger than most have in their tool boxes but was able to get tools and assemble fairly easy. Vehicle handles so much better with this system. Must for anyone pulling heavy trailers. 100164

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. My replacement pieces arrived after more than a week's wait. The packing error was not my fault and I think the replacement parts should have been sent overnight. 488485

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

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

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

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.

  • When installing the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0600 referenced in your question, you will need a torque wrench capable of 250 ft-lbs of torque. With the weight distribution engaged, you will begin with the angle set bolt, tightening it until it comes back into solid contact with the shank. You will then uncouple the trailer and tighten both 3/4 inch shank bolts to 250 ft-lbs of torque. The bolts holding the bracket to the frame should be torqued...

  • Quality Inexpensive Weight Distribution and Sway Control for 5.5K Jayco Travel Trailer
  • I have an excellent recommendation for you. Take a look at the Fastway e2 weight distribution system # FA94-00-0600. It is rated for up to 600 pounds tongue weight and 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight. It has built-in sway control and won't break the bank. The only part needed with this hitch is a ball, # EQ91-00-6100, for a 2-5/16 inch diameter. This hitch does allow backing up. Keep in mind that to choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For 2004 Dodge Ram Towing Travel Trailer
  • The Fastway weight distribution system you were referencing, part # FA94-00-0800, requires a minimum 400-lbs tongue weight, and would not work for you but I do have a solution. I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, part # FA92-00-0450. This system has a 4,500-lb towing capacity and a maximum 450-lb tongue weight capacity. If you find you need a bigger system, I recommend part # FA94-00-0600. This system has a 6,000-lb towing weight capacity and can handle tongue...

  • Are Fastway Weight Distribution Systems Equalizer Hitches
  • Yes and almost yes...a lot of people refer to weight distribution systems as "equalizer hitches" in the same way that people refer to bandages as Band-Aids. Equalizer is a very well-known brand of weight distribution system that people are so familiar with that some just refer to all weight distribution systems as equalizer hitches. Fastway weight distribution systems are made by the same company as Equal-i-Zer systems so they are almost an Equal-I-Zer in brand as well. They are the...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2011 Toyota Highlander and 2,800 Pound Trailer
  • When choosing weight distribution you need to go by the total tongue weight. This is the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of your 2011 Toyota Highlander. I have linked a help article on determining tongue weight for you. If the dry hitch weight of the trailer is 370 pounds then the total tongue weight will likely easily exceed 400 pounds so the 400 to 600 pounds system # FA94-00-0600 is a great choice. But...

  • Removing Spring Bars When Backing Trailer Equipped With Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • According to my Fastway representative, backing in s straight line or anything up to a moderate angle is just fine with the Fastway e2 systems. This being said, unless you are backing almost in a straight line in familiar surroundings, I would personally remove the bars. Anybody who has ever backed a trailer has been in a situation where a moderate turn while backing turns unexpectedly into a near-jackknife. A jackknife or near jackknife can indeed damage the spring bars. I guess its...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Honda Pilot Towing Jayco 17XFD
  • Since your Pilot is going to have a max tongue weight of 450 lbs you will want to go with a system that is properly rated for that tongue weight since most likely your trailer's tongue weight will be right there. Also, you need to consider the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the Pilot as tongue weight. The part # RP66540 would be an excellent option as it has a tongue weight range of 200 lbs - 600 lbs which should be perfect for you. For a 2 inch ball you would want part...
