Product Expert Lindsey S's Opinion

Why would I buy this?

  • Steel brackets do a good job of holding trailer in line to limit sway
  • Works with surge brakes and lets you back up without having to disconnect anything, unlike bar-style sway controls

Why wouldn't I buy this?

  • Steel-on-steel brackets can create a lot of noise, especially during turns
  • With no friction or tension built into the head, there's still the chance for sway, especially with larger trailers
  • Round bars don't allow for much clearance if your rig rides low
Two points of steel-on-steel friction work to prevent and correct trailer sway in this weight distribution system. Sway control brackets help to ensure that your trailer stays in line with your tow vehicle. Shank and 2-5/16" hitch ball included. Lowest Prices for the best weight distribution from Fastway. Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 2-5/16" Hitch Ball - 10K GTW part number FA94-00-1061 can be ordered online at etrailer.com or call 800-298-8924 for expert service.

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 - FA94-00-1061 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the FastWay e2 Weight Distribution System with 2-point Sway Control. This is going to evenly distribute weight over the axles of your towed vehicle and trailer. It's going to offer better stability and better control. Ultimately it's going to create a more level ride for both the towed vehicle and your trailer. Now this particular unit is going to feature two points of integrated or built-in sway control to limit side to side movement of your trailer. These brackets are designed to keep your spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds the trailer in line at all times. As you can see it does not use lift chains like other weight distribution systems.

That means that the spring bars can not move freely. It's going to create steel on steel friction. That's going to help minimize sway caused by winds, curvy roads or sudden maneuvers. Now the unique design of the system makes it compatible with surge type brake actuators. You can even back up your trailer without disengaging the hitch. These are going to be round spring bars that flex appropriately over uneven terrain, offering a nice, controlled, even ride without the bounce.

These are going to be no-drill, clamp-on brackets that are adjustable. They can be adjustable on 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 out of your head assembly, desired tilt is achieved with a traditional washer design. It's going to come with a spacer rivet, and it's going to come with all your washers. Spacer rivet installs between the back of the head assembly and the adjustable portion of the shank.

There's going to be a slot right in here for that to be installed. That way you can easily add or remove washers from the spacer rivet to tilt the head up or down. It's also going to include an angle set bolt that you can tighten once you have that angle set or the tilt set. You can tighten that to make contract with the face here of the shank. Now it does come with detailed installation instructions, as well as an owners manual that's going to walk you through your initial setup, showing you how to get the unit adjusted for your application. The unit's constructed of a steel construction. That's all going to be powder-coated, so it's very strong and durable and it's going to be highly resistant to rust and corrosion.

It's going to look great for a long time. It's also going with a snap-up lever that eases the installation by reducing the amount of lifting required by the trailer jacks. These just help get the bars in place. Sometimes there's tension on those, so you want to be careful to stay a safe distance away when engaging or disengaging the system. That lever just makes that process much easier. The head assembly does come with a hitch ball, so your hitch ball is included. It's going to come with a two and five sixteenth inch hitch ball. It's already pre-installed. When it comes to the maximum tongue weight for this system, we're looking at one thousand pounds. Now always keep in mind that proper tongue weight is going to help generate the friction needed for the unit to do even a better job at reducing trailer sway. When it comes to the maximum gross towing weight capacity, we're looking at ten thousand pounds. The unit's designed for two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers rated for use with the weight distribution system. When positioning your sway control brackets, these are going to be positioned twenty-four inches to twenty-seven inches back from the center of your coupler. The shank is included with the system as well. This can be used in the rise and drop position. It's going to offer six adjustment holes. Those holes are separated on center by inch and a quarter. I did take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball. That's going to measure around twelve and three quarters of an inch. I also took a measurement with the shank in the rise position, and the head assembly at the highest setting, and got a maximum rise measurement of around six inches, measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, to the top of the ball platform. I did that measurement in the drop position as well, with the head assembly at the lowest setting. This system gave us a maximum drop of two inches. The unit is also covered with a ten year warranty. One of the other things I wanted to mention real quick is how the bars disengage from the head assembly. It's going to have these spring clips right here. When you're wanting to disengage, obviously you would need to remove the bars from the brackets. That's just held in there with an L pin, but then also here at the head assembly it's got this clip that you can pull out. Once you pull that out, the bar will disengage from the head assembly. If you don't want to do that, you can actually take the bar, rotate it all the way back until it disengages from the head assembly as well. Disengaging and engaging the arms is a pretty quick and simple process with this weight distribution system. That's going to do it for today's look at the FastWay e-2 Weight Distribution with the 2-Point Sway Control. It's also going to come with your five-eighth inch diameter hitch pin and clip to get the unit secured inside the trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle.

This hitch has been amazing! So far I have put over 2500 miles on it pulling a 6000+ lb trailer with my F150 and I have been incredibly satisfied. The hitch is very easy to hook up and disconnect and the ride is great. This distributes the weight perfectly and the ride is great. I like this way better than the chain style WDH that I used on my last camper. I particularly like that this unit handles sway control without an additional friction device. I have had zero problems with sway, bouncing, or ride control since installing this. I highly recommend it! 411176


Comments
Over 6600 miles on this hitch, and not a problem! We have driven from Michigan to Niagara Falls, Florida, and countless places closer to home. I have hooked/unhooked this hitch 50+ times and it is extremely quick and easy. I am still highly satisfied with this hitch and recommend it to everybody I know who is getting started.

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

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.

Last weekend we took a 150 mile trip with our older nomad camper. The e2 weight Distribution w/2 point sway control worked like a charm. Even had a cross wind at around 25-30mph and there was little to no sway. I took a bad picture of the hitch set up, but my pull was with a 2000 chev. pickup 1500 , 4 wheeler in the back end of pickup ,and trailer loaded to around 7,000 lbs. I will and have told many people about this hitch set-up already. Excellent job etrailer. 86110

I bought this hitch to tow an enclosed car trailer behind a Nissan Titan. My main goal was to reduce sway as my previous WD hitch had no sway control. This hitch only has 2 points of friction whereas other Fastway models have 4. The anti-sway on this hitch is basically ineffective. I would say compared to the previous WD hitch that had no anti-sway that this one is no different. Very disappointed. I later purchased a Husky Centerline TS to tow a travel trailer behind the same truck and it is amazing at reducing anti-sway and I paid less for it. AVOID this model. 700409

I have made two long hauls using the new swaybar system. It has made a big difference in how safe and in control you feel. The most important part of the system for me is how it has almost eliminated the rocking motion produced at the point of the trailer tongue and ball mount. 652614

We had one of the "L" brackets bend slightly and the manufacturer did send us a new set of "L" brackets within a week of contacting them. Great service. I would purchase this again and would recommend to anyone looking for a dual purpose load distributing/ anti-sway set up. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars was because the "L" bracket bent when it should not have. 609709

After 1 year of use, I just don't know why you would pay more for a weight distribution hitch. Have had no troubles at all with this product.

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

This trailer weight distribution and sway control set up has made a huge difference in towing. The first trip we took with out 28' travel trailer was a slow going trip with lots of white knuckle driving. After that i bought and installed this set up and it was like driving a whole different way with less stress that was noticed even before we got out of town. I will not be towing a camper with out this. Install was simple but would be much easier with a second set of hands. 548237

  • Recommended Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution Hitch for Ice Castle Fish House Trailer
    For your Ice Castle Fish House, the weight of the unit will determine what Equal-I-zer system will work best. A weight distribution system is based on the total tongue weight of the loaded trailer along with any cargo weight behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Because these trailers are fairly good sized, I'll give you a recommendation for a larger system. You want that total tongue weight to fall in the middle of the range of the system for best results.

  • Correct Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System for 4,700 Pound Dry Weight Trailer
    Spring bars that are rated up to 1,000 pounds might sound too high for a 4,700 pound trailer but you need to keep in mind that's the trailer's dry weight. A weight distribution system needs to be rated based on the trailer when it's loaded to work properly. So I recommend loading your trailer like it will be when you're towing and then finding out its tongue weight. In addition, any weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle acts as tongue weight for a weight distribution system....

But more often than not you will be turning while backing up and that is when you will run into problems. Basically, it is the friction sway control unit that could get damaged if backing up with this system. As long as you disengage it first backing up won't be a problem. For a similar system with built in sway control that does not have a backing up restriction and with the same...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2010 Chevy Silverado Towing a 5,100 Pound Travel Trailer
    That 350 pound tongue weight is likely the dry tongue weight. If the gross trailer weight is 5,100 pounds when loaded and ready to tow then the tongue weight would be 510 to 765 pounds (10 to 15 percent of he gross trailer weight). Then to that you would add the weight of anything carried in the bed behind the rear axle of the 2010 Chevy Silverado. The Fastway e2 system # FA94-00-0800 is rated for 400 to 800 pounds tongue weight so it covers the range above. You would also need ball...

  • How to Adjust Weight Rating of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch
    Weight distribution hitches like the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-1061 are weight sensitive. You do not want to use one rated lower or higher than the actual tongue weight of the setup. An under-rated system will not be able to do its job of shifting trailer tongue weight forward as it should and an over-rated one will result in jumpy handling from the trailer. It is possible to swap out the spring bars in the hitch to have a different weight capacity. We have three sets of Fastway round bars...

  • Does Just Sway Control Bar have to be Removed to Back Up with Pro Series Weight Distribution 49903
    You would only need disengage/remove the sway control bar to be able to back up when using Pro Series weight distribution system # PS49903. If you were backing up in a straight line and not turning you can keep it on. For not much more money you could use Fastway system # FA94-00-1061 which is also rated for 1,000 pounds tongue weight and comes with built-in sway control. With it you would not have to disengage the sway control when backing up in any situation (turning or not). I...

  • Torque Specs to Attach Head to Shank on Fastway Weight Distribution FA94-00-1061
    The flanges on the head that attach to the shank on Fastway weight distribution system # FA94-00-1061 will flex some but may not completely "pinch" the shank. But the shank bolts only get tightened to 250 foot pounds each, not 400. The torque to attach the ball to the head is 450 pounds. I can't see a toque spec anywhere that states 400 pounds for this system.

  • 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...

  • Can the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-1061 be Used for a Loaded Trailer Tongue Weight of 700 lbs
    If your loaded tongue weight plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle is within the 600 lbs - 1,000 lbs tongue weight range of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System # FA94-00-1061 then yes, it is right where you need it to be. Just be mindful that if you will be upgrading to a trailer that is quite a bit bigger then you may be better off going with the trunnion bar system # FA92-00-1000 instead. This will allow you to simply swap out the bars with part...

  • How To Adjust The Height on a Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Hitch
    Even though a 1" lift probably isn't going to considerably change your setup, if your trailer was level/close to level before adding a Roadmaster RAS system like the # RAS3611-Y , you'll need to make some adjustments. If your trailer is level, you won't need to make any adjustments. The Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch has an adjustable shank, so in order to make adjustments you'll just need to unbolt the head and move it up or down until the trailer is level. I've attached a...

  • Can Fastway Round Bar Weight Distribution be Used with Bottom Mount or Underslung Trailer Coupler
    You have what is called a bottom mount or underslung coupler. The Fastway weight distribution system # FA94-00-1061 will work with this type of coupler. You will just need to install the link plates (that go on the trailer frame) upside down. There are steps on how to do this in the instructions which I have linked for you. I have also linked a video review for you.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2015 Ram 1500 Towing Amerilite Travel Trailer
    The most important factor to consider when choosing a weight distribution system is the total tongue weight of your setup. The total tongue weight will include the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, along with any added weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Ideally, the total tongue weight will fall somewhere around the middle of the weight range capacity of the weight distribution system we choose. The best way to determine your total tongue weight will be to simply load...

  • Comparing Differences of Weight Distribution Systems Between Chains and Platform Brackets
    The Curt MV Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round Bar - 10K GTW, 1K TW # C17062 has the older style chain system along with a friction sway bar. This is a decent system, however the systems with sway control integrated into the brackets like the # FA94-00-1061 you referenced are far better at controlling sway. Other than the difference in two points of sway control integrated into the weight support, the other difference is in the ability to back up your trailer...

  • Fastway Weight Distribution for a 5,500 Pound Loaded Horse Trailer
    To use the Fastway e2 system # FA94-00-1061 on your trailer you would need to cut slots to accommodate the frame brackets for the system. The center of the brackets can be 24 to 27 inches back from the center of the coupler ball cavity so check in that general area on the frame. The only other option would be a different type of system that would require drilling holes through the side of the frame rails which to me is more intrusive than a couple of slots for the Fastway brackets.

  • Longer Shank for Fastway Weight Distribution System
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-1061 you have uses a 12 inch shank. For a compatible shank which is longer you can use the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 which is a total of 18 inches long and is 14 inches from the hitch pin hole to the adjustment holes, as you can see in the accompanying diagram. This shank will give your round bar Fastway system a maximum drop of 7 inches and maximum rise of 10-1/2 inches. I have added a link to...

  • Parts to Help 1994 Chevy C/K Series Truck More Easily Pull 6,000 lb Trailer
    You gave a lot of great information but we have to rely on the owner's manuals to confirm any type of capacity specs and when I looked up the owner's manual of your 1994 Chevy Silverado 1500 it had no specifics on either towing capacity or load capacity, apart from not exceeding your GAWR, which is found on your door jamb. What I can tell you is that the owner's manual said to always use sway control if your trailer weighs more than 4,000 lbs. Since yours is it is a very good idea to...
