Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Have a trailer with 400 lbs – 800 lbs of tongue weight that experiences sway from time to time
  • Only tow a handful of times a year or just travel a short distance and don't want to invest in a really expensive system
  • Don't want to have to go through the hassle of disconnecting anything to back your rig up or to tow in the rain

No, if you:

  • Have a significant amount of sway on a regular basis and need something that can really hold your trailer in line
  • Hate noise - the steel on steel brackets can create a racket, especially during turns
  • Have a van or low-riding car that requires more ground clearance than you can get with round bars
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. Adjustable shank included. Great Prices for the best weight distribution hitch from Fastway.

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.

I bought this weight distribution hitch for my 2,900 mile journey from CA to FL. I was towing a 20 x 8.5 cargo trailer containing all of my worldly possessions. Including 2 rather large safes and a Harley. I was pulling the trailer with my Ram 1500. I would not have been able to properly tow this big of a trailer without the hitch. I did have a couple of issues. But they were my fault and very easy to resolve.




by:

An absolutely fantastic product! This Weight Distribution System was purchased in conjunction with a tongue weight scale. Between the two, what had been an outright scary towing experience it now extremely pleasant in comparison. I recently installed the system and towed my show car in an enclosed 20’ trailer over 250 miles. I experienced none of the sway previously experienced during crosswinds or when semis past by. No more than I experience with just the truck sans trailer on the open road. I now feel safe, secure and confident. I have a short-bed, regular cab pick-up and tow a 20’ enclosed car transport, GVW of the trailer and show car varies between 6,000 and 7,000lbs depending on which car I’m showing and the supplies placed in the trailer.




by:

Customer service and Shipping were awesome. Finished this up today. Not quite as easy as the videos make it look. Maybe just one more minor adjustment. I will definitely be a returning customer to etrailer.com. Very happy so far.

Still very happy with the product. It works very well.

Arrived after a long wait, box was beat up but intact, but when I opened it the hitch head was missing.
Don't know what happened, but etrailer (Carol) was able to send me the part, which arrived within a week.

Having it installed next week.




by:

It was what was expected. To mount the ball correctly though you definitely need the special Proprietary socket for $[XX] (yikes) cuz a regular thin wall won’t fit. On delivery the box was shredded to the point where the shank was separated from the box but all the parts made it. etrailer needs to ship in a second stronger carton so this doesn’t happen. Just follow the well written instructions and your good to go.




by:

Has worked real good for a first time puller. Self installed, with a little help from the pros, but easy hook up and go. Feels real nice on the road, but not real familiar with pulling a trailer without one. Much better to buy and install than the fortune the dealer wanted to charge me.




by:

This hitch has been performing very well! It was pretty easy to install (once you understand the concept of weight-distribution). It does exactly what you’d expect and the quality is good. My only complaint is the metal tabs used to release the bars from the hitch; they are very thin and slippery.

The Fastway Weight Distribution Hitch with anti-sway works great. I installed Firestone Airlifts to my suspension as well. Very stable ride. The combination of air bags and WDH makes us feel a bit safer as well. It's fun to see folks on the highway who got it right, as opposed to those that didn't. This hitch may be load rated a little high for my set-up though - not much flex to the 8,000 lb. bars. We're pulling a 2003 Casita Spirit Deluxe with 2001 Isuzu Rodeo with only 205 HP...We are taking a two week trip next month. After, we will purchase a Toyota TRD Off Road Premium for the next trip - a little more HP and modern electronics! I think the Fastway the best setup for the money. We could have sprung for the Anderson system, but, why? This one does what is supposed to do. The only thing I would like to see improved is the noise it makes when turning corners sometimes. The bars make a pretty loud screeching sound. Like a large metal cattle gate with rusty hinges opening real slow. Any ideas on how to quiet this down? We're not supposed to lubricate. That would take the safety out of the anti-sway. Thank you Lisa D. for all of the time spent with me figuring out the best options for our needs.


Comments
The noise you hear is caused by the metal-on-metal friction caused by the downward force applied to the frame brackets by the spring bars. This friction is what provides the sway control. As you mentioned, lubricating the contact points would completely defeat the sway control feature. Unfortunately, the noise is just the nature of the beast with this type of product.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 06/06/2018
Working out well. I think I would order the 6,000 lb. Round bars if I had to do it again. The 8,000 lb. Bars ride a little rough. I now have a 2018 4runner for a TV and not using air bags. Much better in terms of HP and ride.

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.


Comments
Still working great after a year and many miles.

Bought this hitch for a newly acquired 24’ travel trailer. I liked the idea of the simple flat bars that reduce sway and distribute load. Long story short my trailer ended up whipping uncontrollably and I luckily was able to keep it upright despite being up on two wheels (tandem axel). I will admit I was negligent in not hitting the brakes on my brake controller being new to the travel trailer world. However I setup the hitch exactly how the instruction manual said. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! If you insist on buying a weight distribution hitch with sway control buy one with a separate adjustable sway controller. Etrailer please don’t continue advertising this product as having any type of sway reduction. This product almost killed my family and I. BUYER BEWARE!


Comments
Im sorry that you had that experience, Ive been there myself, and it is indeed frightening! Let me begin by saying that the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system does indeed offer a proven sway control component by the pressure exerted by the spring bars onto the trailer frame mounted brackets. In a good, better, best scenario, Id consider the e2 at the high end of better. So, given this, there are many things that could have potentially caused the sway occurrence you experienced, such as initial adjustment of the system, the way the trailer is loaded and using a system thats improperly rated for the trailers tongue weight which should include the weight of gear in the truck bed behind the rear axle. The setup of the system could be adjusted further for maximum effectiveness. Check that the trailer is being towed so that its as close to level as is possible. The tension placed on the frame brackets can be increased by tilting the trailer ball rearward. Increased tension equals more sway control. If tilting the ball rearward puts the trailer tongue below level, you can raise the weight distribution head on the shank by one set of holes. Improper loading of the trailer with too much weight in front of the axles can cause sway, but this happens more with cargo trailers. Having an improperly rated weight distribution system can lead to a swaying trailer. Weight distribution systems are rated for a range of tongue weights, usually a 400-600 lb spread. Ideally, youll want your trailers tongue weight which includes anything stowed in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle to come as close as possible to the midpoint of the systems effective range. For instance, this particular e2 system is rated for tongue weights between 400-800 lbs. Many folks neglect to include the weight of gear behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle when choosing a system, which can lead to an overloaded system. Ideally, for this system the trailers tongue weight should be around 600 lbs. These are the primary reasons for trailer sway, but there are other possibilities such as pavement condition, improperly inflated trailer tires, worn or damaged suspension components or something as simple as the occasional straight-line wind gust running perpendicular to the highway. Ive linked to our Weight Distribution/Sway Control FAQ article, which contains more information about the differences between systems, as well as additional information about how weight distribution and sway control work. As mentioned earlier, the e2 is a pretty decent system-theres only a few Id consider better. The Reese Strait-Line system, # RP66084
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$927.62
for tongue weights ranging from 600-1200 lbs or # RP66083
Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW
$835.08
for 400-800 lb tongue weights. The Strait-Line is what Id consider top of the line, it will force the trailer to stay in line behind the tow vehicle, unless you make a deliberate turn. Another option that Id consider are the Equal-i-zer systems like the # EQ37120ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW
$984.05
for an 800-1200 lb tongue weight trailer or # EQ37060ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW
$825.00
for a 200-600 lb tongue weight or # EQ37100ET
Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW
$825.00
for 600-1000 lbs of tongue weight. This system operates similarly to the e2, but instead of sway being resisted at 2 points, the Equalizer has a 4-point sway control, with the tension being applied at the point where the bars attach to the weight distribution head and the point where the bars contact the trailer frame brackets. A separate sway control unit like you mentioned, such as # 83660 is considered an-entry level sway control, will resist mild to moderate sway only, it would not be super-effective on a 24 foot travel trailer. If you have further questions or if we can be of assistance, please feel free to contact us.

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.

Easy to install, set up, and works beautifully every time. Truck drives better and feels more solid/grounded fully loaded with this system than it does alone (even better than pulling the old pop-up trailer)! Never get that push/pull of the trailer again!

During initial installation, I didn't have a loaded trailer or truck, so made some educated guesses on bracket and hitch heights. Took 1.5hrs doing it myself (including taking measurements, etc). On our first camping trip, with the trailer fully loaded and all 6 people and gear in the truck, I needed to raise the tongue brackets one hole, which took 10min. Since then it has never needed adjustment and every time I use it I'm thankful for how easy it is to set up and dead useful it is.

Lastly, the included shank was too short for my truck/trailer combo (needed an additional 1" of drop), so purchased a longer one at the same time.

Quick delivery and excellent customer service! I ordered this to tow a travel trailer with my 2007 Tahoe. Works great!


Comments
After using this hitch for over a year, I wish I had researched it a little more. Due to the cheese grater they call Oklahoma roads, the bounce created is immense. Believe it or not, right there in the owners manual it says the hitch is not meant for bumpy roads or off road conditions. I believe next time I purchase a hitch, either when this one wears out completely or i purchase a new tow vehicle, I will be looking at the Andersen weight distribution hitch, as it is meant to control bounce and sway. etrailer, of course, was and still is an amazing company.

Great weight distribution system. Works well with my travel trailer. Install was easy and quick. I got it done within an hour.




by:

Very happy with the product. It was a little stiff & took a lot of strength to get the bars up into place, but I hope it will loosen up in time a bit. It really helped to even out the weight of my truck to the trailer I hooked it up to. I was happy with the way the trailer towed behind my truck with this on it. This was my 1st purchase from e-trailer, the product was just as described & shipped very quickly. I was impressed with e-trailer & will be happy to do business with them again, if I need any future items.


Comments
The bars will be easier to get onto the brackets if you use the trailer jack to raise the trailer while its still hitched to the vehicle. Raising the rear of the vehicle a bit will take some of the tension off the bars, which will make them easier to move.

Great price and easy to set up and adjust. This makes a huge difference in sway control in windy conditions. I have only needed to adjust the weight distribution a few times, but it is easy to do. Thanks for the great product!

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.

by:

The design of the system I don't like very much, the "L" brackets on the trailer hang down to low for my 4ft extention that I have to run, and they end up hitting any little dip in the road or when your pulling into a gas station, did try adjusting them up but I am at my max height right now and they still hang to low, I highly recomend buying a chain system this would eleminate the problem I am having.


Comments
If you buy a product that does not suit your specific needs Dont blame the product. Be smart and order something that works with your 4 extension. By the way the chain system wont make a difference in the height of your bars. Robert P.

Works very good at weight distribution and helping with sway control. Once you get it dialed in with the trailer it's consistent and pretty much fool proof. Not for someone feeble as getting the trailing arms up into the bracket can be a handful and requires some muscle using the included "helper". Carry a rubber mallet with you to get the trailing arm off the bracket and help get the pins in place and you shouldn't have any problem hitching up.

  • What is Difference Between Round Bar and Trunnion Fastway Weight Distribution System
    Both round and trunnion bar systems are equally as effective, but a round bar system won't have as much ground clearance under it as a trunnion bar system. This is because the bars attach to the weight distribution head from underneath. If your tow vehicle is a full sized pick-up or SUV, a round bar system would work just fine. If you're towing with a small crossover or a minivan (anything with little ground clearance) you'd definitely want to go with a trunnion bar system. Typically trunnion...

  • Which Fastway Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 660 lbs Tongue Weight
    If the tongue weight is 660 lbs a system rated for up to 600 lbs tongue weight would not be effective at all and you'd need to go up to the 800 lb setup # FA94-00-0800. This would not be too harsh at all as your tongue weight is within it's range. We also have the trunnion bar version of the part # FA92-00-0800 which will have better ground clearance.

  • Troubleshooting Sway Issues on a 33 ft Trailer With the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, # FA94-00-0800, has a built in sway control system and will not support additional sway control systems. A few things that you can check to help with sway issues is to make sure the tongue weight of your trailer is about 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight by adding more weight to the front of the trailer. Too much weight at the back of the trailer can cause trailer sway as well. You could also raise the L-brackets or add washers to...

  • How To Remove the Spring Bars from the L-Brackets on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    When trying to remove the spring bars on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System, # FA94-00-0800, you should use your trailer jack to relieve the tension on the weight distribution system. By raising the trailer tongue, you are taking some of the tongue weight of the hitch. With the tongue weight lowered, the tension on the bars will be lowered and then you will be able to use the included tool to remove the spring bars from the L-brackets.

    It sounds to me that the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0800 is not adjusted correctly or you have it overloaded, like you said. To determine if the 800 pound tongue weight rating is enough find out the exact tongue weight of your loaded and ready to tow trailer. Not just what the sticker says it's rated for. The sticker will give you the dry tongue weight. Also add in the amount of weight behind your rear axle of your van to the trailer's tongue weight and this is what your system should be...

  • Should Tongue Weight Figure Be Determined with Trailer Loaded for Picking Out Weight Distribution
    Typically when loading a trailer you want the tongue weight of the setup to be between 10 and 15 percent of the total trailer weight as that will give you the best ride quality.

    You will want to set the trailer on the hitch ball by itself first without the WD system attached to let the auto-level do it's thing. Once settled then you would go about setting up the system. For more information on that check out the install video I attached plus the install instructions link that is attached as well.

  • What Is Extra Tall Bushing Used For On Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    The part you are talking about is a bushing and used in the top of the head if you have a smaller shank hitch ball. Typically a 1-1/4 inch shank hitch ball is used but if you have a 1-inch shank on the hitch ball it can be inserted into the hitch ball opening and used on your e2 system.

  • How to Uninstall Sway Bars From Trailer on a Weight Distribution System
    To uninstall the bars on your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution (WD) w/ 2-Point Sway Control like part # FA94-00-0800, or any WD for that matter, what you need to do is extend the trailer jack enough to release the tension off of the bars (be sure not to overextend the jack!). Once the tension is off of the round bars you should be able to easily swing them off of the brackets.

  • Can Fastway E2 # FA94-00-0800 be used with Jayco Hummingbird 17RB
    The tongue weight range of your current Fastway E2 weight distribution part # FA94-00-0800 is 400-800 lbs. Right now your dry trailer tongue weight is 315 lbs. If when it's loaded the tongue weight will be over 400 lbs your current system will be fine. I would assume that most likely that will be the case. Especially when you consider that the cargo weight behind the rear axle of a vehicle also counts as tongue weight.

  • Where Should Spring Bar Brackets of Fastway Weight Distribution System Install on Trailer Frame
    I attached a picture that shows where you need to install the spring bar hanger brackets of the Fastway Weight Distribution System part # FA94-00-0800 that you referenced. You'll need to have them installed in that range which is 24 to 27 inches back from the ball center of the coupler. Aside from that it's pretty standard for spring bars to be difficult to install as they have quite a bit of tension in them to work properly. To make it easier you can connect the trailer to your hitch...

  • Weight Distribution/Sway Control for 2017 Flagstaff MicroLite 192FBS
    None of the hitches we offer for your 2014 Audi Q5 are approved for use with weight distribution systems so you most likely won't be able to use a system. What hitch do you have? If it's a factory hitch check on the sticker of it to see if there's a second capacity listed for weight distribution or check with a local Audi dealer. Typically weight distribution is needed anytime the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the total weight of the tow vehicle or if the vehicle suspension is...

  • General Height Rule for Setting up a Weight Distribution System
    When using a weight distribution (WD) system it isn't as much about making sure that all of the weights are even as it is that everything is riding as level as possible. With this being the case I believe your 4th configuration would be the one to go with. I am not sure what WD system you have, but the general instructions for WD systems have you measuring the stock height of the back and front of your tow vehicle as well as what the height of the trailer tongue needs to be to sit level....

  • Solution for Difficult To Remove Fastway Weight Distribution System Spring Bars
    According to Fastway, this can happen occasionally if your trailer jack doesn't have quite enough lift travel to take enough tension out of the bars to easily remove them. If you place a block under the foot of your jack before lifting the trailer tongue/rear of vehicle, that will provide the additional lift necessary to take enough tension off the spring bars so they are easier to disconnect.

  • What Are Weight Distribution Spring Bars Made Of?
    The bars on weight distribution systems like the Fastway E2 # FA94-00-0800 are made of flexible steel and work with either clamps or via chains connected to the trailer frame to help distribute weight more evenly across the axles in the tow setup. The bars come in 2 different shapes- Trunnion or round bars, depending on the system. I've attached the help article from our site on weight distribution that you may also find helpful.

  • How Far Can A E2 Weight Distribution Hitch Link Plate Be Moved Back
    I contacted Fastway on your behalf. If you could move the link plate placement up as close as 22-23" rather than trying to move them back past 27", that would be your better option. Placing them at 29" is a risk in their opinion on the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0800 because sharp turns could jar loose the round bars posing a safety concern. If that is not an option either, then moving your propane tank would be your next best course of action.

  • What is the Weight of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control
    The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control # FA94-00-0800 is going to be approximately 81 lbs. Looking through the weight distribution hitches that we have, I did not see another one of similar style that was lighter than the # FA94-00-0800. It is also important to note that a weight distribution hitch does not count as tongue weight or get applied to the payload since it becomes a part of the hitch.

  • Weight Distribution for Grand Design Imagine 21BHE Towed 2017 Ram 1500
    While your Grand Design Imagine 21BHE is lighter weight it does weigh more than half the weight of your tow vehicle so a weight distribution system will be a great idea and I would recommend you go with one. You'll have better ride quality, handling, and braking so it will be worth it. Based on the weights you mentioned the Fastway kit you are wanting part # FA94-00-0800 would work really well so that would be a solid choice as well.

  • How To Remove Spring Bars from Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System with Round Bars
    I have attached for you below the write-up from the manufacturer on how to remove the spring bar arms from the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA94-00-0800. If they were not lubricated prior to installation or periodically as stated in the owner's manual then they may be harder to remove, in which case I don't really have any secrets or tips unfortunately, it's just going to take some brute force aka a larger hammer or pry bar. "Arms can be removed by either pulling on the...
