Expert Answers about Fastway

  • Reducer Sleeve and Hitch Pin for a GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD with 2-1/2 Inch Factory Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct. Some OEM 2-1/2 inch hitches from different vehicle manufacturers are too wide for the standard size pin due to extra material on the outside of the hitches. You can get a reducer sleeve by itself. You can use reducer sleeve # DTADP25. Our customers have found that it fits the GM trucks with 2-1/2 inch receivers but not Ford OEM 2-1/2 inch receivers due to a slight design difference. Since you have a GM reducer # DTADP25 will work. For a locking pin that will fit...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for R-Pod Trailer with 500 lbs of Tongue Weight
  • 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. The Fastway e2 part # FA94-00-0600...

  • Comparing Fastway e2 Round and Trunnion and Equal-i-zer Trunnion Weight Distribution Systems
  • Between round bar systems like # FA94-00-0600 and trunnion systems like # FA92-00-0600, I recommend going with a trunnion system because it will provide you better ground clearance than the round bar system. The trunnion bars come straight out from the hitch head, while the round bars come down from the head before moving out. For the Fastway and Equalizer systems, the manufacturer has already factored the hitch weight into the calculation. With these systems, you will only need to...

  • Aluminum or Stainless Steel Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendations for a 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • I assume that you are wanting a 3 inch rise or drop ball mount for your factory installed 2012 Toyota Tundra with a factory installed Class IV hitch that has a 2 inch receiver. You have indicated that you would prefer a ball mount that is made of all aluminum or stainless steel components, has an anti-rattle device and is lockable. Unfortunately, we do not have a fixed stainless steel or aluminum draw bar that will provide a 3 inch drop or rise. However, we do offer several options for...

  • FastWay e2 Weight Distribution System Recommendation for R-Pod Camper with 300 lbs Tongue Weight
  • For your tongue weight of 300 lbs the FastWay E2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0450 that you referenced would be a great option that would be rated perfectly for it. For a hitch ball you then would want the part # 40038.

  • Difference Between 2-Point and 4-Point Sway Control on Weight Distribution Systems
  • The Equil-i-zer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway Control, like # EQ37041ET, differs from the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0450, because it does utilize 2 more points of steel-on-steel friction at the head of the system. The 4-point system uses a tight connection with the trunnion bars at the head, in a way sandwiching the bar and utilizing that friction to keep it from moving as freely. The Fastway e2 2-point system has a slight gap between the...

  • 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.

  • Coupler Locks That can be Keyed Alike
  • We have coupler locks that can be keyed alike which are very similar to the MasterLock # ML389DAT, though unfortunately it cannot be keyed alike. The Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock # DT25013KA can though, and like the MasterLock it works with 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" couplers, and A-frame, straight channel, round tongue, flat plate and surge-type couplers. This coupler lock has been rated impressively high by a pretty large sample size of customers, with 311 reviewers leaving an...

  • Weight Distribution for a Lifted 2016 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch and 5000 Pound Trailer
  • based on the tongue weight of the trailer and the fact that the bed will be empty when towing with your 2016 Ram 2500 the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system # FA92-00-0800 is an excellent choice. There are other shanks available separately. Since you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch you can use a 2-1/2 inch shank # EQ90-02-4900 which has up to 6 inches of drop. This is the most amount of drop offered for a 2-1/2 inch weight distribution shank. Another option is to use a reducer sleeve...

  • Is Sway Control Needed When Towing a R-Pod 173T Trailer with a Ford Excursion
  • Sway control is not necessarily needed when towing smaller trailers like your R Pod 173T, but it would not hurt to have one. The best way to determine if you need sway control on your trailer is to load your trailer as if you were leaving for a trip and drive around for a few miles on the highway and see if sway might be an issue. If you feel that your trailer is swaying more than you are comfortable with, then you could go with an individual sway control bar like the Pro Series Friction...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 3,500-Lb Trailer
  • The most important thing you need to know when choosing a weight distribution system is the total tongue weight. Total tongue weight is the tongue weight of the fully-loaded trailer in its ready-to-tow status added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle. Based on the information you provided on your trailer, your tongue weight will probably fall between 350 and 525 lbs. The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system you came from, part # FA92-00-0450,...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount for 2.5 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The highest rated adjustable ballmount for a 2-1/2" hitch receiver is rated for 10,000 lbs. So I would recommend going with the Curt Channel Style Adjustable Ballmount # C45900. This adjustable ball mount is rated for 14,000 lbs, and has a rise of 5-1/4" and a drop of 6" and fits 2" trailer hitch receivers. You will then want to use a reducer like # 58102, which adapts a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" hitch receiver opening into a 2" x 2. I spoke with my contact at Curt about adjustable ball mount...

  • Replacing Swivel Jack on Coleman Fleetwood Pop-Up Trailer
  • It sounds like an A-Frame jack might be the way to go for you. If the gusset of your trailer tongue A-frame has the jack mounting holes, the Pro Series # PSRV20000103 would work great for you. The jack has a total lift of 14 inches, and a fully retracted mounting bracket height of 9 inches. If your A-frame does not have the mounting hole, you could replace the coupler with one that does. You will want to choose a coupler with the appropriate weight rating and for the same ball size as...

  • Selecting Fastway Weight Distribution Shank for R-Pod 179 Trailer and 2016 Jeep Cherokee
  • You can measure the height of your R-Pod's coupler to determine what amount of drop you need in a weight distribution shank. With the trailer level, measure from the bottom of the coupler to the ground. The height difference between the coupler and the Cherokee's receiver is the amount of drop you need. I checked the R-Pod's specs but coupler height is not indicated. The shank in the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system # FA94-00-0600 has a maximum drop of 1-5/8-inches from top of hitch...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F-350 Pickup
  • The adjustable ball mount you will need will depend on the height of the top of the hitch opening on your F-350 with 2-1/2 inch receiver hitch. We have an article that explains how to measure to select the correct ball mount, see link. For instance, on my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 the top of the receiver opening is 20 inches from the ground when parked on a level surface. I use an adjustable drop receiver at 5 inches of drop, top of receiver opening to top of ball mount, for towing a equipment...

  • Keyed Alike Locking Pin For Ball Adjustment And Hitch Pin On Fastway Ball Mount
  • The Fastway Flash E Series Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount - 2 Chrome Balls - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # FA42-00-2600 you said you have is a fit for 2 inch hitch receivers not 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for Flash E Series Ball Mounts, # FA86-00-3660, is a fit for this hitch and its compatible 2 inch receiver opening measured inside to inside. I'm guessing that you measured the receiver from outside vs. the inside opening and this...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for a 16 Foot Haulmark Cargo Trailer
  • I have just the weight distribution for you and your 16 x 7 Haulmark Cargo Trailer. For the weighs you mentioned the 10,000lbs Equal-i-zer system # EQ37101ET will work great for your 2015 Ram 3500 SRW and 2-5/16 inch coupler on your Haulmark. This system has a 4-point sway control system that doesn't include a shank already so that you can get the one you need. The Equal-i-zer shank I recommend for you is the # EQ90-02-4400 which has a 9 inch drop. The only optional add-on you may...

  • 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...

  • What is the Difference Between Trunnion and Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
  • The round or trunnion bars refers to the end of the spring bars. Round bars are typically designed for lighter applications, are a bit harder to install and are usually priced lower than trunnion bars. Trunnion bars are typically designed to be used with heavier weight applications, and easier to install than round bars. Trunnion bars typically offer more ground clearance as well. I attached an FAQ article on weight distribution for you to check out.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 33-Ft Heartland Travel Trailer
  • The most important thing you need o know when choosing a weight distribution hitch is the total tongue weight. This is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle. The tongue weight of a trailer is typically 10 to 15 percent of the trailer so for a dry weight of 6780-lbs it could range from 678-lbs to 1017-lbs. The WD system they gave you may not be big enough. for the Fastway system # FA94-00-0800, we offer...

  • Comparing Fastway e2 and Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System For Safari Condo Alto Trailer

You will want to choose a system where your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer tongue weight added to the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your towing vehicle is near the middle of the system range. In my research I found that the dry tongue weight of the larger Alto trailer is around 250-lbs. Food, clothing and any other cargo can add up fast so knowing what the total tongue weight is important. I...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with a 2-1/2 Inch Shank and 2 Balls
  • Adjustable ball mount # DTSTBM6625 has a fixed sleeve. I have tired to take one off before and they just do not come off. It isn't welded but it is very much stuck on there making the unit solid as a rock. A similar ball mount, # WS6-25, does have an actual 2-1/2 inch shank, no sleeve, with the same 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise. It is rated for 14,500 pounds and comes with a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball. It also has a built in tongue weight scale. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Fastway Weight Distribution Recommendation for 3,500 lb Trailer
  • Thanks for providing as much information on your setup as you did. That makes my job very easy! So your trailer at it's heaviest would be 3,500 lbs which would mean the tongue weight could range from 350 to 525 lbs. The part # FA92-00-0450 is most likely going to be not rated high enough as you also have to factor the weight of cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle as tongue weight too. The part # FA92-00-0600 would be a better option as it has a tongue weight limit of 600 lbs...

Fastway offers the same system that includes the weight distributing shank, part # FA94-00-1000.

  • Comparison of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems for Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Both the # FA94-00-1061 and the # FA92-00-1000 weight distribution systems are rated for 1,000 pounds of tongue weight which is a good choice for your trailer that has 800 pounds of tongue weight. The difference between the two is that the # FA92-00-1000 uses trunion spring bars and # FA94-00-1061 uses round spring bars. There isn't much advantage either way except trunion bars connect to the head by sliding directly into it and round bars come in from the bottom. The benefit is that...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount That Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • I spoke with my contact at Diversi-Tech about the adjustable ball-mounts that fit a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. All of the 2-1/2 inch adjustable ball-mounts we carry have an adapter attached. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. This ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise with increments of 1 inch for adjusting. It has an adjustable pin in the top of the shank that protrudes through the adapter that prevents rattling. The attached balls measure 2 inches and 2-5/16 inches. I have attached...
