Weight Distribution Ranges on Fastway e2 Hitches

WDH | Weight Distribution Hitches

Weight distribution hitches are designed to help distribute the weight of a trailer more evenly across the hitch and tow vehicle. This can help to improve handling, braking, and overall performance. Fastway Trailer’s weight distribution hitches are available in a variety of sizes and capacities, depending on the specific needs of the user. For example, a light-duty hitch may be sufficient for a small trailer, while a heavy-duty hitch may be necessary for a larger trailer. It is important to select the appropriate size and capacity for the intended use of the hitch in order to ensure a safe and reliable towing experience.

Round Bar or Trunnion Bar Hitch

Fastway Trailer offers the e2 hitch with either round bars or trunnion bars. The biggest difference between them is where they mount on the trailer frame and how the bars are inserted into the hitch head. Trunnion bars slide into the head of the hitch from the side or back, allowing for greater ground clearance than round bars typically offer. Although trunnion bars generally cost a bit more, the price difference is negligible.

The e2 trunnion bar setup features weight ratings from 4,500 to 12,000 pounds while the round bar setup features weight ratings from 6,000 to 10,000 pounds. Either setup is usually shipped without a hitch ball. However, if you purchase the 10,000 lb weight distribution hitch, it comes with a 2 5/16″ hitch ball installed.
