Weight Distribution Diagram

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



Selecting a Weight Distribution System

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


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


Fastway e2 Sway Control

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


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


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

Video Transcript for Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System Review

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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


Comments

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

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

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!

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


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

Review from a similar Fastway e2 in Weight Distribution


Not my first experience with etrailer. Have purchased 4 hitches from them and every experience has been great. Just bought the Fastway e2 10,000 lb hitch to pull a new travel trailer and picked up the trailer today. I was somewhat concerned about picking it up today because the wind has been blowing at 15 to 20 mph. If you have pulled a TT in wind you know how it can cause unnerving sway. I have had white knuckle experiences with my other TT and hitch but this was not my experience today. There was only 1 time which I felt the sway from the wind on the way home and that was not significant. I believe I purchased a good hitch and I know I bought it from the right dealer. 496556

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

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

I have had this hitch/weight distribution setup for a year now and I am very pleased. The trailer hookup is a simple process and the trailer is level.

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

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

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

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


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

  • 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...

  • Why Can't You Back Up when Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System PS49903
  • It is the friction sway control bar in Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # PS49903 that will prevent backing up. The problem is that when backing up force is applied differently to the sway control bar so that when turning and backing up it can damage to it or the trailer. All you would have to do though is disengage the sway control bar when you are ready to back up. Weight distribution systems with friction sway...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2016 Lance 1685
  • 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. I looked up the weight of the 2016...

  • Choosing Between Two Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems
  • If your trailer's loaded tongue weight ends up at around 600 pounds I recommend going with the higher rated Fastway e2, part # FA92-00-0800. For one, if you go over the rated tongue weight the weight distribution system will not be able to do its job. Also, with weight distribution the amount of weight you have stored behind the tow vehicle's rear axle acts as tongue weight on the hitch. So this needs to be added to the loaded trailer's tongue weight and if you're already at 600 pounds...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System For Springdale 179QBWE Trailer
  • Your Springdale 179QBWE trailer has a GVWR of 6030 lbs and a dry weight hitch weight of 530 lbs. You will want to check the tongue weight of the trailer fully loaded and add any cargo weight behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle to get your total tongue weight for your weight distribution system. You want to shoot for the middle of the weight rating on the weight distribution system for best towing. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 8,000 lbs...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 6,000 Pound Trailer
  • When looking for a properly rated weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your towing setup. This number includes both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (as if loaded and ready for a trip), along with any added cargo weight coming from behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Ideally, this number will fall somewhere near the middle of the operating range for the system you choose. Using a tongue weight scale like the Sherline...

  • Weight Distribution for a 7,000 Pound Travel Trailer and 2015 Toyota Tacoma
  • 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. The 7,000 pounds is the gross trailer weight rating which is the most that the trailer can weigh. You may not have it loaded that heavy all the time if at all so we will use 7,000 pounds as the high end. Tongue...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for 2017 Rockwood 2604WS Travel Trailer
  • Based on the tongue weight you gave me, I recommend you go with the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # FA94-00-1000 over the # FA94-00-0800. The reason for the upgrade is that your loaded tongue weight plus any cargo behind the rear axle of your Titan is what accounts for the total tongue weight used to determine a weight distribution system. The # FA94-00-1000 I'm recommending has a total tongue weight range between 600...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Towing a Black Rock Trailer with a 2016 Ram Rebel
  • A weight distribution system is recommended whenever the trailer weight is 50 percent of the tow vehicle's weight. In your case, your trailer is definitely weighs more than half of your 2016 Ram Rebel so I recommend using weight distribution. To choose a system you want to choose one rated for your loaded and ready to tow tongue weight. The total tongue weight consists of the tongue weight of your loaded, and ready to tow trailer added to the amount of weight you have in the bed of...

  • Trailer Still Sways when Using Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2014 Ram 1500
  • It is possible that your total tongue weight is exceeding the capacity of your Fastway weight distribution system. For weight distribution tongue weight consists of the tongue weight of the trailer when ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So if your propane tanks, food, clothes, and 50 additional pounds can all be counted towards the tongue weight that 720 pounds turns into 930 pounds. That 930 pounds is within the capacity of the...

  • Will I Need to Lower My Weight Distribution Bars Tongue Weight Capacity to Tow a Smaller Camper
  • You will not have to change the your bars of your Fastway E2 System, # FA94-00-1000, to tow your new camper. This Fastway system has a tongue weight range of 400 - 1000 lbs. As long as your tongue weight falls in between this range, you will be able to two your camper safely. However if you wish, you can replace the 1000 lbs bars with 800 lbs bar, # FA94-02-0899. This bar will lower the tongue weight range to 400-800 lbs. These round bars are sold by the piece and you will have to order...

  • 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,...

  • Does Pro Series Weight Distribution System PS49903 have to be Disconnected when Backing Up
  • Weight distribution systems that use bar-style friction sway control such as # PS49903 should be disconnected before backing up. If you are backing up perfectly straight then that would be ok but that is rarely the case with trailers! Disengaging the sway bar is not difficult but who wants to get in and out of the truck to do that? I recommend a system that does allow you to back up without having to disengage the sway control. For a system that is rated the same as that Pro Series...
