Expert Answers about Fastway

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Coupler Lock to Protect a Boat Trailer Both at Home and at the Boat Ramp
  • What you could use is the HITCH-LOCK, # DL13980. With the plate angled up, the trailer is protected from someone trying to hitch up to it. When towing a trailer with the plate angled down, it prevents someone from removing the hitch ball already in the coupler. It can be used with the trailer hooked up or not. You will need to use a pad lock like # 37DAT with this HITCH-LOCK. It is also zinc plated for corrosion resistance so it would be good for a boat trailer. For a lock that can be...

  • 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...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Boat Trailer to Allow Use of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • Boat trailers that have a straight pole tongue (rather than an a-frame) can be used with WD systems by adding a pole tongue adapter that provides the necessary mounting points for the spring bar brackets. Equal-I-zer offers one made specifically for their systems, part # EQ95-01-5950. This will bolt onto trailer tongues up to 5-inches wide and up to 5-1/2-inches tall. You can use this so long as your trailer does NOT have a folding/hinged tongue.

  • Comparing Fastway e2 and Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System For Safari Condo Alto Trailer
  • Both of the weight distribution systems you asked about are very nice systems. 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...

  • Minimum Acceptable Tongue Weight of Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Kit Part # FA94-00-1033
  • The minimum recommended tongue weight for the Fastway E2 Weight Distribution system is 400 lbs. This has been confirmed by my Fastway representative. Fastway offers the same system that includes the weight distributing shank, part # FA94-00-1000. The shank offers a maximum rise of 6-3/8" from top of hitch receiver opening and a maximum drop of 1-5/8" from top of hitch receiver opening. The trailer ball is sold separately as part # A-90 for a 2 inch ball or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. ...

  • Weight Capacity of Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-3685
  • The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-3685 referenced in your question does not have a specific towing weight capacity. These will be used to secure the ball mount shank into the hitch receiver and the ball mount platform to the ball mount on the Flash E Series Ball Mounts like # FA42-00-2625. You will simply follow the weight capacity of the ball mount or whichever component in your towing system has the lowest rating.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Reduces Rattle In 2-1/2 Inch Receiver
  • All ball mounts will rattle a little or you would not be able to fit them inside the receiver. I recommend part # DTSTBM6625. 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 a photo that shows where the adjustment is made to tighten the ball mount once it has been installed in the receiver opening. However this ball mount has a 6 inch drop and 7 inch rise...

  • Shank with More Drop for a Fastway Weight Distribution System and 2014 Ford F-150
  • Yes there are alternate weight distribution shanks that offer more rise or drop than the one that came with your Fastway system # FA92-00-0800. Shank number # FA92-02-4214 offers up to 4 inches of drop but it is measured differently than how you have measured. Rise or drop needed in a ball mount or shank is measured as follows: Park the truck and trailer on level ground and disconnect the truck from the trailer. Then measure from the ground up to the top of the hitch receiver opening...

  • Are Special Brackets Available to Use Equal-I-Zer/Fastway Weight Distribution with 2016 Lance 1995
  • I am not sure what special brackets they are referring to because Equal-I-Zer/Fastway does not seem to have anything specific to Lance trailers. If the trailer has a BAL Norco frame then you would need to use outer link plate # EQ90-02-5374 and inner link plate # EQ90-02-5204. It might have been an EAZ lift system and, if so, we do not carry parts for those systems. It looks like the issue on the Lance 1995 is the propane tank, possibly the jack. If you could provide more information...

  • 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...

I've attached a video review for you to check out and make sure. If it is installed correctly and still doesn't meet your needs, then I recommend a different style of coupler lock like the Master Lock Trailer Coupler Lock - 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" Ball Couplers, # ML389DAT.

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Keyed Alike Coupler Locks

This lock secures your coupler from the top and bottom. It is a noticeable theft deterant and it has a tube key lock cylinder to provide better security. It has an anti-drill pin and bolt blocked locking system prevents prying open the lock. Other options for keyed alike couplers lockes are the Blaylock EZ Lock Trailer Coupler Lock for 2"...

This kit will have 2 keyed-alike lock cylinders with 4 keys and lock covers. It will also include 2 set screws and an allen wrench. On the Diversi-Tech ball mount there will be a set screw that is located under the warning label on top of the hitch. If you lift up the warning label there will be a hole with...
