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 Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Colorado

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Colorado, we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2-Point Sway Control, part number: FA94-00-0600. And that's gonna 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. And also available with 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and 1,000 tongue weight, using part number:FA94-00-1000.Now, the way our weight distribution system is gonna work is, it's gonna take our tongue weight and it's gonna evenly distribute all that weight between the axle on our trailer and the axle on our truck. Now, this is gonna give us a stable ride, not only for our vehicle, but also for our trailer. Now, this is gonna allow for a smooth, level ride, and it's gonna allow us to tow the maximum capacity allowed by our vehicle's hitch.

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

Now, in our position, we have it in the drop position, but you can also put it in the rise position to ensure that your trailer's gonna be nice and level when you're towing down the road. Now, the shank is gonna work with 2" by 2" receiver tube openings. Our weight distribution system is gonna feature our round bar style, opposed to the trunnion style, which makes it a little bit easier to install. And 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 gonna weigh about anywhere from 15-20 pounds less than others, which is gonna make installation just that little bit easier, and make it easier on your back.

Your system's even gonna 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. Now, what I really like about this weight distribution system is the fact that I don't have to drill into anything. Everything's gonna use brackets that are gonna sandwich in between the frame of our trailer, or it's gonna hook up into the hitch, and we're not gonna have to worry about welding or any kind of cutting.Our weight distribution system is gonna feature a steel construction, with a nice black powder coat finish to resist corrosion and rust. All the features that we've gone over so far are gonna apply to all three weight capacities of our Fastway e2 systems.

With everything hooked up, let's go ahead and take our truck and trailer and see how it handles. Once I pull it out I can tell you, I feel a difference. Going around the turn, it genuinely feels like the trailer wants to come back in line with my truck and track right behind it. And it genuinely just feels like it's a smaller trailer than it is, and just feels a lot more stable and safe.To begin our installation, you're gonna want to disconnect your truck and trailer, and you want to go ahead and pull out the ball-mount you've been using. Next thing we need to do is make sure that our trailer is sitting nice and level, and you can either take a tape measure or a level, and you want to make sure, front to back, that it's nice and level, and where it's gonna be towed at. You'll want to grab the head out of the packaging. Our kit's not gonna come with a ball, but you're gonna want to choose a ball that's gonna fit your coupler, and that's gonna have a long enough shank to go through so we can mount it. Now, with the ball loosely in place, we can go ahead and put the lock washer and nut on. Now we're gonna need to put the ball in the vise so we can tighten this nut down without it spinning. Now, in order to torque our nut down, you're gonna need a thin wall 1-7/8" socket so you can get it in between on the head here, and you're also gonna need a torque wrench that's capable of going up to about 450 pounds. So we're gonna go ahead and torque this. And if you don't have these tools available, I suggest you take it to a shop that can install the ball for you.Once you have your trailer level and the ball is mounted, you want to come up and you want to measure from the ground to the top of the coupler on your trailer. And you're gonna want to either write down that measurement or remember it. Now, every trailer's gonna be a little bit different, but you just want to make sure that it's nice and level, and you measure from the ground to the top of the coupler. Now, you're gonna want to take the adjustable shank and you're gonna put it into your hitch, and secure it with the pin and clip. If we look at the back of our head, we're gonna have a bolt on the bottom and a hole in the top right here. Now, we're gonna want to grab our spacer rivet, and we're gonna start with six spacer washers here. And we're gonna slide the washers onto the rivet, and then we're gonna slide the rivet into place. And we're gonna need to get the head in place on the shank, and you're gonna want to get that top of the ball as close to that measurement as you can, and then you're gonna see where the corresponding holes line up, and then we can get some hardware in place.Now, the way we're gonna be attaching the head to our shank here, is gonna be with this 3/4" bolt and a conical tooth washer. You're gonna want to slide the washer onto the bolt, making sure that the teeth are just gonna face the channel right here. So once you figure out where it needs to sit . in our application we're gonna be using the second hole from the top. So we can take our bolt, slide it through, and it'll help support it a little bit. Now, once the bolt's through, we're gonna take another one of our conical tooth washers, slide it over the bolt, and then secure it with a lock nut. And we're gonna repeat that process for the bottom hole, wherever it may line up.At this point, we're gonna want to snug up our bolts. We don't want to tighten them down all the way, just hand tight a little bit snug. So I'm gonna come back with an 1-1/8" socket for the bolt head, and then 1-1/16" wrench to hold the nut on the other side. The bolt at the bottom of our head here, we're gonna grab a 15/16" socket, and we're gonna tighten it up until it makes contact with the shank. But also, we're gonna tighten it up until that rivet with the spacers is also making solid contact, as well. Now, once that rivet is making solid contact with the shank, we're gonna want to turn that bolt one more half turn.We're gonna have to take a few measurements along the frame and the tongue of our trailer here, so I'm gonna go ahead and remove the cover for my tanks just to make it a little bit easier to see what I'm doing. From the center of our coupler, we're gonna go along the frame here, and we're gonna measure out to 27", and then we're gonna mark a spot on our frame on both sides. Now, every trailer's a little bit different, but where we had that 27" mark, it was gonna interfere with our gas tanks here. So we removed the gas tanks and just moved the tray forward with the self-tapping screws. You need to determine if your coupler is top-mounted or bottom-mounted. And what I mean by that, the coupler on here is mounted to the top of the frame; it's gonna determine how you mount your sway bracket assembly.So we can go back to that 27" mark now. We'll go ahead and grab our link brackets here, and the one with the two studs, that's gonna be on the outside of our frame here. And we're gonna put it against our frame, and the edge of it should be lined up with that 27" mark. Now, you want to make sure that the L with the studs coming out are going towards the outside of the frame, and are towards the top of the frame. And you want that single hole at the top. So we can grab our other bracket, and you want to watch for any electrical lines or anything else that's on the inside of the frame there.And then we can take our 1/2" by 4" bolt, and we're gonna slide it through both brackets. With the bolt through, we're gonna come back with a lock washer, slide it over our bolt, and secure it down with a nut. We're gonna take another one of our 1/2" by 4" bolts, and we're gonna want to go through the hole closest to the frame of our trailer. So if you can't get it through the hole, or if it's just half of a hole, you're gonna want to use the next available one. Just stay as close as you can. And we're gonna be securing it with the same hardware; a lock washer, followed by a nut. You're gonna want to make sure that the edge of your plate is right at the edge of that 27" mark that we made, and you're gonna want to have the two brackets laying flat against the trailer frame, and you're gonna tighten down those nuts hand-tight for right now. And we'll repeat that for the other side, as well.We're gonna come back with a 3/4" socket and wrench, and I'm gonna start tightening up my bolts. Now, when you're tightening these up, you want to tighten them up a little bit, and then alternate to the other bolt so that it doesn't start bowing out or getting bound up. Now, we're gonna get these nice can snug, and you're gonna want to come back with a torque wrench. We're gonna torque down our bolt to the specified amount in the instructions. And again, you want to go back and forth, alternating between the two, so you don't get a weird bind or a bow in your plates. We'll go ahead and tighten and torque the other side, as well. So, we're gonna grab our L bracket, and initially we're gonna set it up, we're gonna leave two holes at the top. So we're gonna slide those studs through our L bracket, and we'll secure it down with some nylon lock nuts. And we'll go ahead and put the other one on the other side. I'm gonna come back with a 3/4" socket and snug up the nylon lock nuts. I just want to mention, we don't want to tighten them up all the way, we just want them nice and snug. We'll snug up the other ones too.We're gonna need to put our spring arms in place, but before we put them in, we're just gonna take a little bit of grease and just put a thin layer around the notched end that's gonna be going into the head. Then we're gonna take that notched end, and if we come to the bottom of our head, we're gonna push it into place. And we'll see that it locks in and it won't come out unless we pull on the release tab. Now, we're gonna put the other arm in place, as well. At this point, you're gonna want to back your truck up, and hook up to the trailer. You want to lower the tongue onto the ball, and until the jack is coming up off, and make sure that's locked into place.Once we have our trailer coupled to our truck, we're gonna take our spring arms and we're gonna get them on top of our L brackets here. Now, if you've reached the top of your jack, and you don't have anymore room to lift it, they're gonna give you a tool that comes in our kit. We're gonna be putting that right in that square hole, and we're gonna take our spring arm and put it in the pocket. And then we can lift upwards. And once it's sitting there, we're gonna take our L-shaped pins, slide them down to the square hole, then secure it with a clip. And you're gonna do that on both sides. Now you're gonna go ahead and lower the jack back down so your trailer is back on the weight of your hitch, and you're gonna want to look and see that you have a minimum of 3" on your spring bar here to the L bracket.Now with the weight distribution installed, we're gonna need to make sure that it's adjusted properly. Now, you're gonna want to uncouple your trailer from your truck, and you're gonna want to take the measurement from the ground to the inside top edge of the thunder well here. After you have that measurement, you're gonna hook up to your trailer with the weight distribution in place, and you're gonna take that measurement again. Now if it's too little and the front end is coming up, we're gonna need to adjust it. But if it's pushing it down, we're also gonna have to make some adjustments. The second measurement after we have it hooked up, you're gonna want it to be as close as possible to that original height measurement. And if you are, you're ready to go.Now, after our initial setup, we found that we do need to make a little bit of an adjustment, because it's pushing the front of our vehicle down. And if we look at our spring bar here, it's kind of slanted up, and we want that nice and parallel with the frame on our trailer. So we're gonna be loosening these bolts, taking the spring bar off, and then moving this down. If your spring bar is sitting nice and parallel, or you just need a little bit of adjustment, we're gonna go to the back of the head and you're gonna need to remove the bolts and uncouple the trailer. And you're gonna be removing the spacer washers from the back here. And then you're gonna want to hook everything back up and remeasure and check everything.Once you have your weight distribution set up the way you want it, your front measurement and your fender is back to original height, and the tongue on your trailer is sitting nice and level, we can go ahead and take everything back apart one more time and do our final tightening. So I'm gonna come back to our brackets holding our L brackets in place, and tighten down the bolts and torque them to specification that we're gonna find in our instructions. And we're gonna do that for both sides. Finally, we can come back to our two 3/4" bolts coming though our shank, and we can tighten that up using a 1-1/8" socket and holding the nut on the back with a 1-1/16" wrench. We're gonna repeat that for the remaining bolt, as well. With everything torqued down, we can re hook up our trailer and put our spring bars and everything else back into place.And that'll finish up our look at the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System with 2-Point Sway Control, on our 2017 Chevrolet Colorado.

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

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 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

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

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

Customer service and Shipping were awesome. Finished this up today. Not quite as easy as the videos make it look. Maybe just one more minor adjustment. I will definitely be a returning customer to etrailer.com. Very happy so far. 312233

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

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.

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

An absolutely fantastic product! This Weight Distribution System was purchased in conjunction with a tongue weight scale. Between the two, what had been an outright scary towing experience it now extremely pleasant in comparison. I recently installed the system and towed my show car in an enclosed 20’ trailer over 250 miles. I experienced none of the sway previously experienced during crosswinds or when semis past by. No more than I experience with just the truck sans trailer on the open road. I now feel safe, secure and confident. I have a short-bed, regular cab pick-up and tow a 20’ enclosed car transport, GVW of the trailer and show car varies between 6,000 and 7,000lbs depending on which car I’m showing and the supplies placed in the trailer. 117552

Very happy with the product. It was a little stiff & took a lot of strength to get the bars up into place, but I hope it will loosen up in time a bit. It really helped to even out the weight of my truck to the trailer I hooked it up to. I was happy with the way the trailer towed behind my truck with this on it. This was my 1st purchase from e-trailer, the product was just as described & shipped very quickly. I was impressed with e-trailer & will be happy to do business with them again, if I need any future items. 121952

The bars will be easier to get onto the brackets if you use the trailer jack to raise the trailer while its still hitched to the vehicle. Raising the rear of the vehicle a bit will take some of the tension off the bars, which will make them easier to move.

Bought this hitch for a newly acquired 24’ travel trailer. I liked the idea of the simple flat bars that reduce sway and distribute load. Long story short my trailer ended up whipping uncontrollably and I luckily was able to keep it upright despite being up on two wheels (tandem axel). I will admit I was negligent in not hitting the brakes on my brake controller being new to the travel trailer world. However I setup the hitch exactly how the instruction manual said. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! If you insist on buying a weight distribution hitch with sway control buy one with a separate adjustable sway controller. Etrailer please don’t continue advertising this product as having any type of sway reduction. This product almost killed my family and I. BUYER BEWARE! 495159

Im sorry that you had that experience, Ive been there myself, and it is indeed frightening! Let me begin by saying that the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system does indeed offer a proven sway control component by the pressure exerted by the spring bars onto the trailer frame mounted brackets. In a good, better, best scenario, Id consider the e2 at the high end of better. So, given this, there are many things that could have potentially caused the sway occurrence you experienced, such as initial adjustment of the system, the way the trailer is loaded and using a system thats improperly rated for the trailers tongue weight which should include the weight of gear in the truck bed behind the rear axle. The setup of the system could be adjusted further for maximum effectiveness. Check that the trailer is being towed so that its as close to level as is possible. The tension placed on the frame brackets can be increased by tilting the trailer ball rearward. Increased tension equals more sway control. If tilting the ball rearward puts the trailer tongue below level, you can raise the weight distribution head on the shank by one set of holes. Improper loading of the trailer with too much weight in front of the axles can cause sway, but this happens more with cargo trailers. Having an improperly rated weight distribution system can lead to a swaying trailer. Weight distribution systems are rated for a range of tongue weights, usually a 400-600 lb spread. Ideally, youll want your trailers tongue weight which includes anything stowed in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle to come as close as possible to the midpoint of the systems effective range. For instance, this particular e2 system is rated for tongue weights between 400-800 lbs. Many folks neglect to include the weight of gear behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle when choosing a system, which can lead to an overloaded system. Ideally, for this system the trailers tongue weight should be around 600 lbs. These are the primary reasons for trailer sway, but there are other possibilities such as pavement condition, improperly inflated trailer tires, worn or damaged suspension components or something as simple as the occasional straight-line wind gust running perpendicular to the highway. Ive linked to our Weight Distribution/Sway Control FAQ article, which contains more information about the differences between systems, as well as additional information about how weight distribution and sway control work. As mentioned earlier, the e2 is a pretty decent system-theres only a few Id consider better. The Reese Strait-Line system, # RP66084
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$709.04
for tongue weights ranging from 600-1200 lbs or # RP66083
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW
$598.73
for 400-800 lb tongue weights. The Strait-Line is what Id consider top of the line, it will force the trailer to stay in line behind the tow vehicle, unless you make a deliberate turn. Another option that Id consider are the Equal-i-zer systems like the # EQ37120ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$677.95
for an 800-1200 lb tongue weight trailer or # EQ37060ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW
$657.95
for a 200-600 lb tongue weight or # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$657.95
for 600-1000 lbs of tongue weight. This system operates similarly to the e2, but instead of sway being resisted at 2 points, the Equalizer has a 4-point sway control, with the tension being applied at the point where the bars attach to the weight distribution head and the point where the bars contact the trailer frame brackets. A separate sway control unit like you mentioned, such as # 83660 is considered an-entry level sway control, will resist mild to moderate sway only, it would not be super-effective on a 24 foot travel trailer. If you have further questions or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to contact us.

The design of the system I don't like very much, the "L" brackets on the trailer hang down to low for my 4ft extention that I have to run, and they end up hitting any little dip in the road or when your pulling into a gas station, did try adjusting them up but I am at my max height right now and they still hang to low, I highly recomend buying a chain system this would eleminate the problem I am having. 38157


Comments

If you buy a product that does not suit your specific needs Dont blame the product. Be smart and order something that works with your 4 extension. By the way the chain system wont make a difference in the height of your bars. Robert P.

Wonderful product! Noticed a major difference when towing my 27’ travel trailer. With this you do not need to get out of your truck to disconnect anything to go in reverse.

Item arrived on time and all parts were there. Box was quite beat up though. Maybe should put item in shipping box instead of sending just the item in it’s selling box. Too much opportunity for parts to fall out of torn box. Otherwise would have left 5 stars. 599303

Used this product on a Lexus RX350 to tow an AR-One 15rb. Product works as I had hoped. Initial setup was straight forward, following the instructions. Hitch came quickly and parts fit well together. After first camping trip, made a small adjustment on the hitch to "level" trailer. Would recommend this hitch to others. 585149

The device is extremely well built but can be difficult to put on and off due to the way the arms connect to the hitch. It is also quite heavy. The good part.....as a new trailer owner it makes me feel safe and secure while towing on the highway. Gives me great peice of mind. 580797

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

Works very good at weight distribution and helping with sway control. Once you get it dialed in with the trailer it's consistent and pretty much fool proof. Not for someone feeble as getting the trailing arms up into the bracket can be a handful and requires some muscle using the included "helper". Carry a rubber mallet with you to get the trailing arm off the bracket and help get the pins in place and you shouldn't have any problem hitching up. 444870

Very satified. 443750

I have been happy with the weight distribution. At times the anti sway needs to be readjusted depending on low the truck and trailer are loaded, but I am sure that it is the same with any system.

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 4,500 Pound V-Nose Trailer
  • Since you do not have any frame space on which to attach sway-control brackets, I do recommend going with the Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950 referenced in your question. This will let you mount the weight distribution system on your trailer tongue and can be positioned 27 to 32 inches back from the hitch ball. I have included an image that gives you a better idea as to how this will work. Then for the actual weight distribution system, we will first want to take an estimate...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 2-1/2 Inch Shank for Fastway Weight Distribution on a Ford F-250 with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • Fastway is made by Equal-I-zer so I recommend one of the Equal-I-zer 2-1/2 inch shanks: Shank # EQ90-02-4900 has a 10 inch rise or 6 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4800 has an 8 inch rise or 4 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4700 has a 7 inch rise or 3 inch drop I have linked a video review on one. The others will have the same features with the difference being the amount of rise and drop each offers.

  • What is Difference Between 800 and 1,000 lb Tongue Weight Fastway Weight Distribution Systems
  • The difference between the 800 lb tongue weight E2 Fastway Weight Distribution System part # FA94-00-0800 and the 1,000 lb tongue weight version part # FA94-00-1061 is the amount of spring bar tension either is rated for. The 1,000 lb kit has stiffer spring bars so that it can handle higher tongue weight capacities and the 800 lb kit has spring bars that aren't quite as stiff.

  • Shank with More Drop for Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • We have a couple of Fastway weight distribution shanks that could work for you. First we have # FA92-02-4214. It offers up to a 4 inch drop. For a little bit more adjustability we have # FA92-02-4315 which has a maximum 6-1/2 inch drop. The shank that came with your system offers up to 1-5/8 inches of drop so either shank above will work since the new truck is just 2 inches higher than the old one.

  • What is Difference Between Round Bar and Trunnion Fastway Weight Distribution System
  • Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. Typically trunnion...

  • Best Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System For A Loaded Trailer Weight Of 5000 Lbs.
