Comparison of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems for Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight


trying to pick a WD-Antisway system for 8000 lb travel trailer with 800 lb hitch weight towed by Ford Expedition with towing package. What is difference between FA94-00-1061 and FA92-00-1000?


Expert Reply:

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 trunnion bars will have better ground clearance. The other difference between those two systems is the # FA92-00-1000 does not come with a hitch ball. The correct hitch ball to use is # 63840.

When choosing a weight distribution system you want to make sure you factor in the tongue weight of trailer when it's loaded and ready to tow. You also want to add the amount of weight you will have in the back of your Expedition behind the rear axle. If you find that you need a system rated higher, the Fastway e2 # FA92-00-1200 is rated for 1,200 pounds tongue weight and also has trunnion spring bars.

I've attached a help article on weight distribution for you to take a look at.

can this be up graded to an equalizer 4 pt hitch by changing the head out? 70669

The Fastway and Equal-i-zer heads, while made by the same company, aren't interchangeable. If you wanted a 4-point sway control system you would need to go with the full Equal-i-zer WD System. 57643
