Weight Distribution Diagram

Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.


Fastway e2 Sway Control

The two points of sway control within the e2 are created by the steel-on-steel friction that occurs when the spring bars slide within the L-brackets that are mounted on the trailer tongue. Most traditional weight distribution systems have spring bars that are suspended by chains. Although this ensures that the system is not so rigid as to create bounce in the trailer, it also allows a good deal of side-to-side play in the system.


The direct friction that is applied to the spring bars in the e2 system helps to stop sway once it has begun. The concept is similar to the way in which an add-on friction sway control device functions. When each spring bar moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket, creating friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer.


Most add-on units feature some sort of friction material similar to that used in automotive brakes. But the e2 uses direct steel-on-steel contact to create resistance. This is the same sort of friction that is used with locomotives that pull loaded railcars weighing tons. No additional materials are needed. The steel will outlast any of those other materials, providing an extremely durable, functional sway-control system.

Video Transcript for Fastway Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - FA94-00-1000 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway E2 weight distribution system with built-in two-point sway control. This unit is going to help evenly distribute weight over the axles of the towed vehicle and trailer offering better stability and better control. Ultimately it's going to create a more level ride for both your towed vehicle and your trailer. Now this unit features two integrated points of sway control. That's going to limit side to side movement of the trailer. It's built-in so you don't have to purchase anything additional to have a sway control system that's built-in to the weight distribution system. These brackets are going to keep the spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds the trailer in line at all times.

It does not use lift chains, that way the spring bar can move freely. It's going to use the steel-on-steel friction that's going to help minimize sway caused by winds, curvier roads or sudden maneuvers. The steel-on-steel friction comes from the bottom of the spring bar and the top of the L-bracket. The unique design of this system makes it compatible with surge-type brake actuators. You can even back up your trailer without disengaging the weight distribution system. It's going to use round spring bars that are designed to flex appropriately over uneven terrain for a controlled even ride without the balance. It's going to use the no drill adjustable clamp-on brackets that can be adjusted along the trailer frame to accommodate frame-mounted items such as gas tanks, battery boxes, toolboxes or generators.

This unit can be used with top mount and bottom mount trailer couplers. When it comes to getting the tilt of the head assembly that's achieved with a traditional washer design and spacer rivet, it's also going to use the angle set bolt right here. That way you can easily add or remove washers from from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down. Then you can adjust the angle set bolt as necessary. The spacer rivet with the washers are going to install between the backside of the head assembly and the front side of that adjustable shank. There is a space down here to get that unit installed.

The unit is made from a steel construction. It's going to feature a powder-coated finish. It's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion and lasting a long time. It's also going to come with a snap up lever that eases the installation by reducing the amount of lifting required by the trailer jack to get your spring bars in place on the brackets. Now, as you can see it does not come with a hitch ball. That is sold separately.

We carry those here at etrailer.com. If you're in need of one, the diameter of this hole is an 1-1/4, so it does require 1-1/4 diameter shank on your hitch ball. It does come with a reducer sleeve right here that will reduce that opening from 1-1/4 down to one inch, if you want to use a ball with a one inch diameter shank. When it comes to the maximum towing weight, we're looking at 1,000 pounds. Minimum towing weight is 400 pounds. Proper towing weight helps generate the friction needed for this unit to help reduce trailer sway. Maximum gross towing weight for this unit is 10,000 pounds. It does come with your adjustable shank and the hardware to get everything installed. This is designed for a 2"x 2" trailer hitch receiver rated for use with weight distribution systems. This way you control brackets are going to be positioned about 24-27 inches back from the center of the trailer coupler. The shank on this unit can be used in either the rise or drop positions. It's going to offer six adjustment holes. Those holes are separated on center by 1-1/4. Now, I took a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole and got a measurement of 12-3/4 of an inch with the unit as level and square as possible. I also moved this to the rise position and put the head assembly at the highest setting and got a maximum rise of around 5-3/4 inches. From the inside top edge of the receiver tip of our hitch or the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. Now with that installed in the drop position like it is right now and with the head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give us a maximum drop of around 2-1/4 inches doing those same measurements. You can see everything that it comes with here on the table. Again, it's going to come with your washers, spacer rivet reducer sleeve and it's going to come with your hitch pin and clip to get this unit secured inside your hitch. This is a standard 5/8 inch diameter pin. When it comes to engaging and disengaging the spring bars, there's a couple of ways that you can do that. You can either remove the bar from the brackets on the trailer frame, rotate it out to the side until it disengages or we have these spring clips right here. It has the nice, large finger tabs on there so you can easily grab that. Pull that out and that will drop the bar out of the head assembly. Engaging and disengaging the bars and the head assembly is very quick and easy. It's also covered with a 10-year warranty. That's going to do it for today's look at the Fastway E2 weight distribution system with the built-in two point sway control.

This system works great for me. I have a Nissan Frontier and 21 foot TT. If you install this yourself make sure you watch every video and then follow the written instructions provided. You cant go wrong. This leveled my truck out and planted the front wheels firmly back on the ground. One word of warning. If you are parking your trailer on an incline and the truck and trailer aren't level move to a level spot, remove the bars and then back it in. Just makes getting the bars off easier. 570572

Product is good - heavy. Instruction book leaves something to desire. Makes reference to Spacer Washers but has no picture of where they go. Not enough pics to understand all parts. Have not used product yet but seems very high quality. BTW delivery was awful! Came 5 days after it was stated to be delivered. Big brown co did awful job. Too bad etrailer can't use FX. They are soooo much better. I won't order anything else because of delivery mess. 512391


Comments

The washers act as a fine adjustment for the tilt of the weight distribution head. The more washers added to the stud, the further rearward the head tilts. If you use the provided link, you can see an install/set-up video that will walk you through the process.

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

This is a review of etrailer.com not the towing system. I ordered several items online Sunday morning, then realized I needed to change one. Their customer service starts at noon on Sundays. About 11 am I received an email stating that my order had been shipped - on a Sunday! An hour later I was on the phone with one of their "customer service" reps. Although she admitted that my order had not yet actually left the premises, she refused to have someone from shipping pull the order back in and make a change. Finally left me on hold until the line disconnected. And this is on a 2-day shipping that cost about $30 extra! After exhausting all possible options. I called back and had basically the same conversation wth another rep. I told them I was going to call the bank and file a dispute, and might even keep the order for spite. A few days later i received an email with a return shipping label. When the order arrived, I printed the label. It was for a 2 lb package. This order was 2 boxes and weighed almost 100 lbs! I refusef the order and am still waiting to hear from their customer service. Bank reversed the charges. etrailer is the WORST company I ever dealt with 399541

Talked to etrailer an the manufacturer both before putrchasing this hitch and both were excellent in helping me to determine if this one was suitable for my application.Due to my Kiefer 3 horse slant trailer frame's design and Kiefer wanting no holes drilled in the frame Fastway's rep helped me with a plan to over come the design by boxing in the angle frame with another section of angle and (using longer bolts in the brackets of the proper grade due to the frame's width) where these hitch brackets were to be installed .Installing these brackets was very quick and easy with the detailed installation directions that came with the hitch.Still need to finish the setup of the hitch with horses and tack loaded but see no problems with the detailed instructions received with the hitch and if any problems I feel confident etrailer or Fastway will give me any help I would need.The shipping was fast and the customer service has been top notch from both etrailer and Fastway. Thanks, Sheridan 66239

I am very pleased with the products. I used them to haul my 3 horse trailer to Northwest Colorado and back plus on several other occasions and the performance has been excellent . I would definitely recommend them to people. I was very pleased that someone on your staff steered me in the right direction to find what I needed. Your company is one that I would be glad to recommend to anyone.Thanks for the follow up

John was very patient and helpful, made me feel confrable as I know nothing about these hitches. He worked diligently making sure I ordered the best set up for my truck and trailer combination including measurements (he told me were and what to measure as I was actually measuring). I was assured that I was receiving a good price as E trailers "price match" and I purchased a quality hitch assembly at a wonderful price. Free delivery was a great perk and the hitch arrived in a couple days as predicted. I have a 2003 Excursion Limited 7.3 diesel 4x4 and need to pull a loaded 28ft car trailer. The young weight is over 800 PDS and I want to be confident that it will be safe. John was an integral part of my purchase and the follow up and technical help is great!

I needed a weight distributing hitch to tow a 16' box trailer behind my truck/slide in camper rig, attached with a 48" hitch extension. Initial set up was a breeze. Hitching and unhitching the trailer is straight forward and easy. Weight distribution helps take some of the stress off the trucks suspension and is noticed by reduced suspension air bag pressure. Truth be told, I barely notice the trailer is back there even when loaded with two quad atv's, an Indian Roadmaster and support equipment. 522837

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

Installed on a T&B camper trailer being towed by a Mazda CX5. Is a fairly straightforward install as long as you follow the well-written directions carefully. Being slow and methodical it took me all afternoon. On a test drive it seems to tow well. Note that the removable hitch is fairly heavy (weight-wise) and requires some creativity on where and how to store it when not in use (I keep it in the trailer or the house, not in the car). 572114

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

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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


I bought this product to pull our 20' Winnebago Micro Minnie with our Honda Pilot. It works great and we have never had a bit of sway with it. I especially like the fact that I can back the trailer without removing the anti-sway control which would be a big headache in most situations. 561425

Everything was delivered on time and in good condition. It was a few days before I tried to install it. I did have to move my brake switch as this was the only open place on the trailer frame. Using the start point for the install I was unable to get the bars in place. I had to move them to the lowest position to start my adjustments. I have yet to road test to see how close I am at this point. 553310

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

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

The hitch was more difficult to install than anticipated. We needed to purchase a larger than typical wrench to get the job done. What took most of the time was the adjustments rather than the physical attaching. Make sure you are careful with your measurements! Overall I am very pleased with the product. It definitely helps produce a smoother ride. 381310

Good product. Works as advertised. The weld radius on one side is not too clean, making it difficult to secure the riser bar with the 90-deg pin. 364255

This hitch set up was perfect for us. We have a small 21 foot travel trailer and pull it with a standard 2013 1500 Silverado. The hitch did its job lifting the rear of the truck to level. Great sway control. I highly recommend it. When we eventually go with a bigger set up, I WILL be buying this brand again. 508769

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • Trunnion Bars vs Round Bars & Ground Clearance
  • The round bar extends about 2-1/2 inches below the weight distribution head, while the trunnion bar does not extend below the weight distribution head at all, as you can see in the side-by-side photo I edited for you. This is why we recommend folks that have vehicles with low ground clearance like minivans and compact trucks go with a trunnion bar system.

  • Comparing Weight Distribution Systems With Sway Control When Towing 32-Ft Travel Trailer
  • Based on your trailer weight the tongue weight when the trailer is loaded and ready to tow may be at the high range of the three systems you referenced. You really want to have your tongue weight fall right in the middle of the system range, so if your tongue weight is 1,000 lbs you may want to check out systems that can handle up to 1,200 lbs like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control, part # RP66074. This system can handle tongue weight between 600 and 1,200 lbs. The...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 23 Foot Travel Trailer w/ 5400lb GVWR
  • In addition to all the items on the trailer that will increase its dry tongue weight, you'll also need to add the weight of anything you carry in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle. The right way to do this is to load up the trailer as you would typically have it, and take it to a truck scale or use the # 5780 Sherline Tongue Weight Scale. Ideally, the TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight distribution system...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2016 R-Pod Model 179 Travel Trailer
  • 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. If the dry tongue weight on your...

  • Driving in Reverse with Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with Sway Control
  • You made a great choice! The e2 Weight Distribution Hitch, # FA94-00-1000, is a sturdy system that has 2-Point Sway Control and comes with a 10-year warranty. The unique design of this system does allow you to back up without having to disconnect the sway bars. Don't give your friends a hard time, though. Many weight distribution systems have independent friction sway control devices that do require you to get out of your vehicle and remove the device prior to backing up. Your e2 system,...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution for Winnebago Micro Minnie 1706FB
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-1000 should work for your Winnebago Micro Minnie 1706FB and for installation we strongly recommend using 1-7/8" thin walled socket # EQ70-00-4800 to make installing the unit's hitch ball a much easier process. The other thing you will need is the hitch ball itself, either 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 19286. The way to choose the correctly rated weight distribution system is by knowing your total tongue...
