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 FA94-00-0800 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway E2 weight distribution with 2 point sway control that's built into the unit. This system's going to help evenly distribute weight over the axles of your tow vehicle and your trailer, offering better stability and better control. Ultimately, it's going to create a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. The unit's going to feature 2 integrated points of sway control that's built in, again, integrated. It's going to limit side-to-side movement of your trailer. These brackets are going to keep your spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds the trailer in line. As you can see, the system does not use lift chains like other weight distribution systems.

That way, the spring bars cannot move freely. The sway control is a friction style, so as these bars move back and forth a little bit, they're creating friction on these brackets, so it's steel on steel friction and that's going to help minimize sway caused by winds, curvy roads or sudden maneuvers. The unique design of the system makes the system compatible with surge-type brake actuators. You can even back up your trailer without disengaging the hitch. These are going to be our round spring bars. These are going to flex appropriately over uneven terrain.

It's going to offer a nice, controlled, even ride without the bounce. These are no-drill clamp-on brackets that can be adjusted along the trailer frame to accommodate frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, battery boxes, tool boxes or generators. This unit can be used with top-mount and bottom-mount trailer couplers. When it comes to getting the tilt that you need out of the head assembly, it's going to use the traditional washer design. It's going to use a spacer rivet, and it's going to come with the washers. The spacer rivet installs in between the adjustable portion of the shank and the back side here of the head assembly.

That way, you can easily add or remove washers from the rivet to tilt the head up or down. It's also going to include an angle set bolt right here that can be tightened to make contact with the adjustable shank. It does come with installation instructions and an owner's manual. It's going to walk you through the initial setup. It's going to show you how to get everything adjusted for your application. The unit's made from a steel construction and it's all powder coated to resist rust and corrosion.

It's very strong and durable. It's going to last a long time. It does come with a snap-up lever as well. This is going to ease installation by reducing the amount of lifting that's required by the trailer jack, helps get the bars in place, and it also helps disengage the system. As you can see here at our head assembly, it does not come with a hitch ball. Your hitch ball is sold separately. Your hitch ball requires an inch and a quarter diameter shank to fit perfectly in this hole, but the unit does come with a reducer sleeve for use with a 1-inch diameter shank on a hitch ball. When it comes to the maximum tunnel weight, we're looking at 800 pounds. Minimum tunnel weight is 400 pounds. Proper tunnel weight is important. That's going to help generate the friction needed for this unit to reduce trailer sway. When it comes to the maximum gross towing weight, that's 8,000 pound capacity. This is designed for a 2-inch by 2-inch trailer hitch receiver that's rated for use with a weight distribution system. When you're positioning the sway control brackets, these are going to be positioned 24 inches to 27 inches back along the trailer frame from the center of the coupler. The shank is included. This can be used in the rise or drop positions. It's going to offer 6 adjustment holes and those holes are separated on center by an inch and a quarter. I did take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole with the unit as straight and square as possible, and that measured 12 and 3 quarters of an inch. I also took a measurement with the head assembly at the highest setting with the shank in the rise position. That's going to give us a maximum rise of 6 inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of the hitch to the top of the ball platform. I also moved the head assembly to the lowest setting with this in the drop position and got a maximum drop of 2 inches. The product's also covered with a 10-year warranty, and it's going to come with your hitch pin and clip, goes directly in this area here to secure the end to the inside the hitch on your vehicle. I also want to talk about just a minute how the bars engage in the head assembly. It's going to use the spring clip right here. When you're ready to disengage, you can pull that out and drop the bar out to disengage. That's also how you would install it. Or you can actually rotate the bar to the side and it will disengage from the head assembly, so disengaging the system is quick and easy as well. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway E2 weight distribution system with the built-in 2 point sway control.

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

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.

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
$548.79
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
$613.18
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
$580.11
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
$585.97
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
$518.95
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.

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

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


Comments

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.

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

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 e2 Weight Distribution hitch has been excellent for towing my 5000lb travel trailer, and was a good deal here on etrailer.com. The 2 way sway control keeps everything steady, and is the best I have ever used in my many years of towing travel trailers. The only problem I have experienced with it, is that when pulling out of Gas Stations or anywhere there is a small curb or gutter, it tends to drag. This usually causes the sway bar mount to get knocked out of alignment. 453910

Installed this brake controller on my 1998 Nissan Pathfinder to control my 1971 Shasta 1400. The controller is simple to use and understand. Set on the lowest boost setting to start, and then bumped it up to B1 it responds like the pathfinder without the trailer. Excellent controller! I installed it myself. The only difficulty I had was getting access to the brake signal wire above the brake pedal, but this is not a problem of the brake controller. 237314

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

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

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

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

I 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. Overall I am very happy with it, the price was reasonable and it was fairly easy to assemble. Customer service was very helpful confirming it was the right fit for my trailer and truck. 432563

I've put a little over 4000 miles on the hitch and hitch ball that eTrailer recommended. It tows like a dream and is easy to use. Far better than the ride before weight distribution and it was eTrailer that finally got me into the right solution after several other companies talked me into buying the wrong thing. They've earned my trust. 322931

I followed the step by step instruction, had to do a little adjusting, but once I got it right it all worked perfect. Definitely makes a difference in how my pickup sits level when hooked to the trailer. put it to a good test with a gusty 30+ miles an hour side wind, it handled like a champ at 60 mph. Very satified. 443750

I will not be using this product for another month, but I will comment on the ease of purchase and the quick shipping. I have purchased items from etrailer in the past and they are definitely my "Go-to" source for trailer & towing items. Thank you for the wonderful customer service. 488458

Used this for the first time today, the system did exactly what it was supposed to do. Went down interstate with very little sway and really distributes the weight of the camper well. The customer service was great Shawn B really was very helpful and product arrived in two days. 371070

This was my first sway bar it works excellent, as listed. Only problem I bought one bigger than I needed. Don't do it. Use what is required. It was differcult to level, because there's not enough weight on the hicth. Backups great. 362564

Works great, even can back up the trailer without unhook in the bars. I tow a race car on a 18 foot car trailer, car is a 70 model camaro with 572 cubic inch big block. I even unload the car without unhook in the bars. 453990

This weight distributing hitch is superb. It takes a little while to get it adjusted perfectly for your vehicle, but once you do it is extremely easy to use, and performs just as it should. It's well worth the money. 487278

Actually all the welds broke on it and our trailer was only 3,500lbs. Did not hold up very well. We ended up selling it as well as our camper. Camper was too small and we currently have a new Rockwood on order. 474976

  • 2015 Ford F-150 Sags at the Back When Coupled to Trailer with 550 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Sag at the rear of a vehicle such as your 2015 Ford F-150 can happen from 1 of 2 ways. First, weight in the actual truck bed can cause sag. Second, the tongue weight from a coupled trailer can cause sag. The ways to deal with the sag are different. When sag is caused by a trailer the recommended solution is weight distribution, not helper springs. Weight distribution will more evenly distribution the force of the tongue weight to all of the axles on the tow vehicle and trailer so it...

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution for a 2012 Nissan Frontier and 4,000 Pound Trailer
  • For your 2012 Nissan Frontier and trailer hitch # 87539 you will need a weight distribution system that is rated high enough for the total tongue weight of the trailer. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. A trailer weighing 4,000 pounds would have a tongue weight around 400 to 600 pounds (10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight). For...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for a 2018 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 174BH Baja
  • When you are looking into Weight Distribution (WD) systems you will want to choose a WD system with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the loaded weight of...

  • Fastway Weight Distribution-Amount of Washers, How to Remove Spring Bars and Torque Figure Question
  • I spoke to my contact at Fastway and he informed me that on a shorter wheelbase vehicle like your 2003 Ford Expedition a good starting point would be 5-6 washers, but the reason they do not list a recommended amount in the instructions is because the amount of washers required varies based on the application. The easiest way to get the spring bars off is to use the trailer jack to raise the coupler when connected to a trailer so that the spring bar tension is relieved and can easily...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Pulling 2016 Jayco x23b
  • This weight distribution hitch # C17062 is a great value and will work with your 2014 Dodge Durango. Just a heads up to be cognizant of your 2016 Jayco x23b's FULLY loaded trailer weight. I have attached an article on how to accurately measure tongue weight. This system can handle up to 1,000lbs in TW. The above system is rated for 800-1000lbs TW. If you fully load your trailer to 5000lbs and you have 15 percent tongue weight you will be under 800 pounds. If we add what you will have...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Sway Issues on a 33 ft Trailer With the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, # FA94-00-0800, has a built in sway control system and will not support additional sway control systems. A few things that you can check to help with sway issues is to make sure the tongue weight of your trailer is about 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight by adding more weight to the front of the trailer. Too much weight at the back of the trailer can cause trailer sway as well. You could also raise the L-brackets or add washers...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Fleetwood Pioneer 19T4
  • 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. Assuming your trailer will weigh...

  • 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.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance with 220-Foot Airstream Trailer
  • When it comes to ground clearance the preferred type of weight distribution (WD) hitch is the trunnion style, such as # RP66542 from Reese. Trunnion spring bars attach to the head unit from the side rather than from the bottom like round bar systems like the Fastway # FA94-00-0800 and so they provide better ground clearance. The linked article on WD systems may be helpful to you as it explains the features of various systems. For a 600-lb TW Reese system # RP66083 is a great choice. All...

  • Recommendation on a Weight Distribution and Sway Control with an 18 Inch Shank Extension
  • When trying to decide on a proper weight distribution (WD) system for your towing rig, you will need to know the total tongue weight (TTW) of your set-up. The total tongue weight will be a fully loaded ready to tow trailer, plus any weight located behind the rear axle of your GMC Sierra. You want to use a system where your total tongue weight will fall in between the WD system's tongue weight range. I have attached an article that will explain how to find the TTW of your towing rig.

  • Weight Distribution for 2008 GMC Envoy Denali and 5,600 Pound Travel Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. On a trailer that weighs up to 5,600 pounds the tongue weight will likely be 560 to 850 pounds which is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If you keep the total tongue weight under 800 pounds then...

  • Which Weight Distribution is Best for a Jayco Jay Feather SLX
  • The best way to choose a weight distribution system is to determine your total tongue weight. The total tongue weight includes the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo loaded in the back of your truck behind the rear axle. Based on the dry weight and GVWR of your trailer, I would estimate your trailer's tongue weight to be around 400 lbs to 600 lbs loaded. The total tongue weight could be higher depending on what cargo you load behind the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2013 Nissan Frontier Towing Tandem Axle Travel Trailer
  • Curt 2-inch hitch # 13241 is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Nissan Frontier and it is rated for use with weight distribution systems like those from Fastway and others. The key to selecting a weight distribution/sway control system for your tandem axle travel trailer is to measure its actual tongue weight (TW) when the trailer is fully-loaded in its road-ready condition, with water tank full and all supplies and gear loaded. To this measured actual TW you will add the weight of anything...

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.

For a fully loaded and ready to tow trailer tongue weight of 600-1000 lbs, use # EQ37100ET. Both systems include the weight distributing shank, and the # EQ37060ET system includes a 2 inch trailer ball. The #...
