Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch Review

e2 round bar weight distribution hitch


  • Low cost option
  • Trunnion bar option for greater ground clearance
  • Does not need add-on sway controls, unlike a chain-style spring bar WDH
  • Unlike other spring bar WDH systems that use add-on friction controls, you do not need to disconnect anything for backing or driving in bad weather


  • Can be noisy
  • Only 2 points of friction for anti-sway control
  • Hitch ball is an additional purchase
  • Have to store bars when not in use
  • Initial setup can be a bit tricky

The Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch is our best budget WDH. Read on to find out why.

To learn more about choosing the best weight distribution hitch, as well as access the other reviews, please visit the main weight distribution hitch page.

The Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch is manufactured by Progress Manufacturing.

They also make the Equal-i-zer weight distribution hitch.

The e2 line of hitches offer similar weight distribution properties as the Equal-i-zer hitches, but not as good anti-sway capability, at a more affordable price point.

The Fastway e2 weight distribution hitches are a MUCH better option than having a simple ball mount.

They are a definite step-up from the chain-style weight distribution hitches (that require add-on anti-sway bars).

Choose The Right Fastway e2 WDH Part Number

There are several part numbers available for Fastway e2 weight distribution hitches.

So before you can make a purchase, you need to figure out which one is right for your trailer and tow vehicle.

Keep reading below to learn more about this WDH hitch, and when it comes time to buy, see the section on choosing the right part number.

Fastway e2 WDH Promotional Video

Much of this review is very similar to the Equal-i-zer hitch review, our best traditional weight distribution hitch.

Considering they are made by the same company, it isn't surprising they share many of the same attributes.

However, the Fastway e2 hitch is Progress Manufacturing's budget line of weight distribution hitches.

They offer 'cheaper' features, including round bar style spring arms and only 2 points of sway control.

Spring Bars

The Fastway e2 WDH uses traditional spring arms for weight distribution but offers both a round bar (cheaper) option and a trunnion (better ground clearance) option.

Both styles of spring arms utilize 2 points of friction for sway control (unlike the Equal-i-zer hitches that have 4 points).

How To Connect and Disconnect The E2 WDH

E2 hitches require a series of steps to connect and disconnect your trailer from your tow vehicle.

Here's what you have to do to hitch up your trailer:

  1. Raise the trailer hitch coupler with the camper tongue jack so that the hitch ball (mounted on the tow vehicle) can be maneuvered under the trailer coupler
  2. Line up the tow vehicle and trailer so that the hitch ball is under the trailer coupler
  3. Using the tongue jack, lower the trailer coupler onto the hitch ball and engage the coupler latch
  4. Using the tongue jack, raise both the trailer and rear of the tow vehicle so that the weight distribution arms can be installed into the "L" brackets. Sometimes the tongue jack isn't able to raise the trailer and tow vehicle combination high enough, so you have to use the snap lever to manhandle the arms onto the brackets. Watch your back when you do
  5. Install the "L" pins so that the arms are secured to the brackets
  6. Lower the trailer and tow vehicle by retracting the tongue jack into the stored (ready to roll down the road) position
  7. Finish connecting all safety chains, safety brake, trailer electrical connection, and doing whatever else necessary to get the rig ready to hit the road

Spring Bar Storage

When your trailer isn't connected to your tow vehicle, you have to figure out what to do with the spring arms.

One solution can be found in the hitch accessories section of the main WDH page.

Disconnecting your travel trailer from your tow vehicle is done by doing these steps in reverse.

See the below video for a demonstration of the hitching and unhitching process (this video shows the Equal-i-zer hitch in action, but the steps are exactly the same for the e2 hitches):

Hitching & Unhitching Your Weight Distribution Hitch

Bad Back? Beware If You Have A Manual Jack

As you can see, you have to raise/lower the trailer twice (including the weight of the rear of the tow vehicle during one of these times) each time you either connect or disconnect your e2 WDH.

This isn't a process unique to the Fastway e2 line of weight distributing hitches.

It's simply a process you have to go through with any traditional style WDH that utilizes spring arms and brackets.


Furthermore, if you have a manual tongue jack (that you have to crank up and down by hand), it's even more of a pain. 


It can strain your back if you aren't careful. But hey, look on the bright side! You get a little workout.

e2 Trunnion Weight Distribution Hitch

If this up down, up down process isn't appealing to you (and let's be honest, this is a real downside to this style of weight distribution hitch), then consider the Andersen weight distribution hitch.

It doesn't require so much use of the tongue jack.

No Need To Disconnect To Back Up

You do not need to disconnect the Fastway e2 hitch when you backup (something you have to do with some anti-sway mechanisms).

The only caveat to that is the following statement from the owner's manual:

Disengage weight distribution before towing or backing the trailer where there is a significant transition in grade which puts excessive strain on the hitch, i.e. a flat street to a steep uphill driveway.

 This is because of the weight distribution bars shouldn't be subjected to a sharp vertical angle between the tow vehicle and the trailer.

Trailer Hitch Ball Is Separate Purchase

Except for one e2 WDH kit (both a round bar and a trunnion bar version), the trailer hitch ball is a separate purchase.

You will need to purchase the right-sized trailer hitch ball for your application.

Integrated Sway Control

Progress Manufacturing has what they call an Integrated Sway Controlβ„’ feature in their Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch.

This 2-point anti-sway system uses friction between the spring arms and the brackets mounted to the trailer frame to reduce trailer sway while towing.

e2 round bar weight distribution hitch installed

e2 Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch

Unlike the more expensive Equal-i-zer hitches that use 4 points of friction for sway control, the e2 hitches use only linear friction where the weight distribution bars (spring arms) intersect the "L" brackets (2 points).

While the e2's sway control is better than not having any, you might want to opt for the more extensive sway control offered by Equal-i-zer hitches. 

Especially if you have a heavier or larger trailer.

The disadvantage of this type of sway control mechanism is it is pretty noisy. 

This is because the sway control comes from metal-on-metal friction between the spring arms and the "L" brackets.

So, when the tow vehicle and trailer turn, or go over bumps, there is relative movement between the spring arms and brackets.

As a result, this metal-on-metal sliding makes loud clunking noises.

Weight Distribution Hitch Noise

You cannot lubricate this contact area, as it will reduce the friction.

Reducing friction will reduce (or eliminate) the anti-sway capability.

You just get to live with the creaking and groaning.

This noise is just a byproduct of this type of WDH system.

Oh, joy.

If you would prefer to have a weight distribution system that doesn't make these types of noises, the Andersen weight distribution hitch would be a great option.

Finding the Right Fastway e2 Hitch For Your Trailer

Fastway e2 weight distribution hitches come in several different part numbers that all come standard with a 2" shank (to fit 2" receivers) and accommodate up to  a 1" drop or a 7" rise.

The  major difference between part numbers is the weight capability of the hitch and what type of spring arms they use (round bar versus trunnion bar).

Higher capacity hitches use heavier-duty spring arms.

The e2 hitch comes in versions for the following gross trailer weights:

  • 4,500 pounds
  • 6,000 pounds
  • 8,000 pounds
  • 10,000 pounds
  • 12,000 pounds.

Steps to take to figure out which e2 hitch your need for your trailer and tow vehicle setup:

1. What hitch weight rating do you need?

The weight distribution hitch you use will need to be capable of supporting the weight of your loaded trailer. However, you don't want a hitch with too high of a weight rating or else it won't function properly. 

Your hitch also needs to be able to support your trailer's tongue weight.

The key is to figure out your trailer's actual weight and calculate trailer tongue weight (as well as be aware of your trailer's maximum weight) and then pick a hitch with a rating above your trailer's actual weight and tongue weight.

Choose the next highest rated hitch, but don't go up multiple hitch sizes or else it won't function properly.

The gross trailer weight rating (GVWR) can be found on a placard on your trailer (see below pictures for examples).

While you can use the gross trailer weight rating to choose the correct sized hitch for your setup, it's often a much better idea to know the weight of your rig as you actually use it.

Knowing Your Actual Weight vs Using GTW Rating

Sometimes the gross trailer weight (GTW - the maximum weight the trailer can be) is way more than the actual weight of the trailer.

For example, Camp Addict Co-Founder Kelly's trailer has a GTW of 7,300 pounds, but the actual weight of the trailer, as she has it loaded, is around 4400 pounds.

HUGE difference.

Whereas Camp Addict Co-Founder Marshall's trailer has a GTW of 5700 pounds, and he is right at that weight the way it's currently loaded and with fresh water in the tank.

Why does this matter?

Well, in Kelly's case, if she was going off the GTW as indicated by the travel trailer manufacturer, she would need a 10,000-pound version of the Fastway e2 hitch (the closest weight rating, without being under, to her GTW of 7,300 pounds).

A 10,000-pound hitch is WAY overkill for her situation.

The heavier the hitch rating, the stiffer the setup is going to be. A stiff setup is fine if you have a heavy trailer. However, a super-stiff setup on a light trailer is not a good thing.

A heavier rated hitch than what you require can cause a stiffer ride, which may lead to premature wear of components.

More likely, it may result in an uncomfortable ride for tow vehicle occupants.

Also, you will have to deal with much heavier spring bars, which are already a hassle to deal with. 

  • The above bits about not getting too high of a hitch weight rating doesn't apply to the Andersen WDH as it doesn't use spring bars. The Andersen weight rating is based on hitch ball and receiver hitch size and one kit (of a certain ball and receiver size combination) fits a wide range of trailer weights. It's MUCH easier to figure out what kit is right for you when you go with an Andersen WDH.

Because Kelly knows the ACTUAL weight of her travel trailer as she uses it, she can have a weight distribution hitch that better matches what the real-world weight of her rig is. 

In her case, the 6,000 pound Fastway e2 hitch is more than enough for her particular situation.

A 10,000 pound setup would be overkill and would lead to a stiff ride and having to deal with really heavy spring arms.

This is a great example of why you really need to weigh your travel trailer (with it loaded as you will use it) before you purchase a weight distribution hitch.

You want to get the right weight rated hitch setup for your exact situation.

2. What size shank do you need?

In other words, how much rise or drop is there between the hitch receiver on your tow vehicle and the coupler on your trailer?

To figure this out, you need to park your trailer on flat ground and make sure it is parallel to the surface.

You do this by measuring from the ground to the bottom of the trailer frame rail at both the rear of your rig and the front of your rig (not the A-frame part at the front of your rig, but the frame rail underneath the 'box' of your trailer).

Adjust the tongue jack so that these measurements are the same and this will mean your trailer is parallel to the ground.

Once your trailer is parallel to the ground, measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's hitch coupler (see image below).

You also need to measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening of your tow vehicle.

Measure receiver and coupler height

Once you have these two measurements, it's time to do a bit of math.


Take the coupler number (measurement A) and subtract the receiver number (measurement B).

This will give you the drop or rise needed.

A positive number means a rise of that number of inches. Similarly, a negative number means a drop of that many inches.

Example time!

Let's say the distance from the ground to the bottom of your trailer coupler is 17 3/4 inches (measurement A) and the distance from the ground to the top of your tow vehicle's receiver opening is 15 1/2 inches (measurement B).

A (17.75) minus B (15.5) = 2.25, or a rise of about 2 inches (rise because it's a positive number).

In other words, the coupler is higher than the top of the receiver.

In this example, you can use the standard shank that comes with all e2 hitch kits, as they allow for up to a 1" drop to a 7" rise.

If you need a larger drop or rise, then you can purchase the correctly sized shank separately and not use the included shank.

Another option is to purchase a shank-less e2 system (only available in the 10,000 -pound weight rating) and separately purchase the correctly sized shank. This also applies if you have a 2.5" receiver as the standard kits are for 2" receivers.

3. What is the height of your trailer frame at the front of the trailer (the A-frame section that has the coupler attached to it)?

Fastway e2 hitches will fit up to a 6" frame.

If you have a trailer with a 7" or 8" frame, then the e2 hitch won't fit.

In this case, you can use an Andersen WDH.

Special Frame Bracket for 4,500 Pound Kit

The 4,500-pound trunnion arm kit uses a special frame bracket that is different than what comes with other e2 kits.

It fits frames from 2 1/2" tall to 5" tall and can be adjusted in 1/2" increments.

If your frame is taller than 5 inches, you most likely have a heavier trailer and cannot use this kit.

measuring travel trailer frame

Measuring Frame Height

Have A 4 3/8" Frame?

Many travel trailers use a frame manufactured by BAL that measures 4 3/8" (when you measure the frame rails vertically).

Problem is that e2 hitch frame brackets are designed for frames that measure full inches (for example, a 5" frame).

If you use the standard bracket on your 4 3/8" frame, there will be a gap.

A gap is no good because it causes bracket slippage.

You can purchase special brackets (see below) that are designed to be used on 4 3/8" tall frames.

These brackets are intended for use with the Equal-i-zer hitch system, but Equal-i-zer brackets will work with the e2 hitch system as well (they are manufactured by the same company).

If you choose to purchase the right-sized bracket for your 4 3/8" frame, you will need to order 2 each of the following part numbers (so 4 extra bracket parts total):

  • 90-02-5204 (order two! - click on part number to view price on Amazon)
  • 90-02-5374 (order two! - click on part number to view price on Amazon)
WDH bracket to frame contact points

Why A Gap Is Bad!

Receiver Size

There is one more item to take into consideration - the size of the receiver opening your tow vehicle has.

Most vehicles will have a 2" receiver opening, which is the size that Fastway e2 WDH comes standard to fit.

However, some heavy-duty trucks will have a 2 1/2" receiver opening, and some even have a 3" opening.

See "What Size Hitch Receiver" directly below.

What Size Hitch Receiver?

The Fastway e2 hitch 'plugs' into your tow vehicle at the trailer hitch receiver (pictured below).

The shank (what Progress Manufacturing calls the part that attaches directly into your tow vehicle) that comes with a Fastway e2 WDH system is designed to fit the standard-sized (2 inches) receiver openings.

However, your vehicle might have a larger receiver opening so you have to make sure you order the correct fitting part.

trailer hitch receiver

Trailer Hitch Receiver

Fastway e2 hitches come standard with a shank to fit a 2" receiver opening.

This will fit most standard hitches (Class III and Class IV hitches).

If you have a heavy-duty truck, you may have a Class V hitch, which might have a 2 1/2" or a 3" receiver opening.

If you have a 2 1/2" receiver, you can purchase the correctly sized shank separately and not use the included shank.

Another option is to purchase a shank-less e2 system (only available in the 10,000-pound weight rating) and separately purchase the correctly sized shank.

It's a bad idea to use an adapter to fit a 2" shank into a 2 1/2" receiver as it generally reduces the weight you can tow with your setup.

You NEED a shank that fits your receiver!

Progress Manufacturing doesn't offer a shank that fits a 3" receiver.

Because using an adapter (to allow you to use a 2 1/2" shank in a 3" receiver) isn't a great idea, you should instead consider installing an Andersen weight distribution hitch.

They offer 3" receiver options.

Putting It All Together - Choosing Your Fastway e2 WDH Part Number

Once you've figured out your trailer's gross weight and tongue weight, along with what sized shank you need, it's time to order the correct hitch kit.

If your tow vehicle has a 2" receiver and you can use the standard shank that allows for up to a 1" drop or a 7" rise, then simply order the part number with the correct weight rating shown in the table below.

Round Spring Arms vs Trunnion Spring Arms

Fastway e2 weight distribution hitches are available with either a round bar style spring arm, or a trunnion style spring arm.

What is the difference between the two styles?

A round bar is the least expensive option, but it comes at the expense of less ground clearance.

The round bars drop down out of the hitch head assembly before curving backward towards the trailer frame.

e2 round bar weight distribution hitch

e2 Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch (hitch ball not included)

Trunnion arms go straight back from the hitch head without first dropping down, so they offer more ground clearance.

e2 trunnion bar weight distribution hitch

e2 Trunnion Bar WDH (hitch ball not included)

  • Trunnion arm e2 weight distribution hitches come in a wider variety of weight ratings than the round bar version.

If ground clearance is your top priority, then go with the trunnion option.

If you don't care about ground clearance and want to spend the least amount of money, then go for the round bars.

No Shank e2 Hitches

The shanks that come in e2 hitch kits are for 2" receiver openings and accommodate up to a 1" drop or a 7" rise.

If you need a shank with more of a drop or rise, and/or your tow vehicle has a 2.5" receiver, the standard kits won't work for you.

Instead, you can purchase the appropriate shank separately and also get a Fastway e2 WDH that comes with no shank (see chart directly below).

The no shank version is only available in the 10,000-pound rating, in both a round bar and a trunnion style of the spring arm.

The Equal-i-zer weight distribution hitch offers no shank versions in other weight ratings.

Need A Different Hitch Shank?

The shanks that come in Fastway e2 hitch kits are for 2" receiver openings and a 1" drop to a 7" rise.

There are shanks available below that you can purchase separately that will accommodate more than a 1" drop or 7" rise and/or fit into a 2.5" receiver opening.

You can purchase a shank by itself (see table below) and use it instead of the shank that comes standard with one of the e2 kits.

This allows you to customize your weight distribution system in case the standard shank doesn't fit your tow vehicle and trailer combination.

However, this does mean that you will have a spare shank - the one that comes standard with e2 WDH kits.

Still, there is one version of the Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch that comes without a shank.

This is so you can purchase the right shank for your tow vehicle without having a spare one (the one that comes standard with e2 kits).

The only catch is the shank-less version is only available in the 10,000 trailer weight rating size.

Buy The Correct Sized Hitch Ball

Except for some versions of the 10,000 pound rated setups, Fastway e2 hitches do not come with a hitch ball.

You have to supply your own.

Depending on what your trailer requires, you will need to purchase either a 2" ball or a 2 5/16" ball.

The diameter ball required is generally stamped on the trailer coupler (the part that rests on the ball).

See the below image for an example.

Trailer hitch ball size

Locating Your Hitch Ball Size

Below are the hitch balls that Progress Manufacturing offers and which work perfectly with their Fastway e2 WDH systems.

They are made from Chromoly steel and have a 2 1/4" long threaded shank that is 1 1/4" in diameter.

  • The 4,500 pound rated trunnion kit is made for light-duty use and requires a hitch ball with a 1" diameter threaded shank. The below part numbers have a 1 1/4" diameter shank so they WILL NOT work with this model e2 hitch.

There is only one weight rating on the 2" ball, and three different weight ratings for the 2 5/16" ball.

Installing Your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch

The installation of an e2 weight distribution hitch can be a bit tricky.

This is because you have to play around with a combination of washers in the hitch head (that adjust the head angle) and height of the "L" brackets, to get the proper weight distribution setup.

The good news is that this is generally a one-and-done procedure (assuming the weight of your trailer doesn't appreciably change).

The bad news is this can be a time consuming and frustrating process.

The below videos show the steps you have to take to install either the round bar style or the trunnion style (both the light-duty and heavier duty versions) Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch:

Installing The Fastway e2 WDH (Round Bar Style)

Installing The Fastway e2 WDH (Trunnion Style)

Installing Fastway e2 WDH (4. 5K Light Duty Trunnion)

Keep It Lubed!

The Fastway e2 weight distribution hitch manual states the following about keeping the hitch cleaned and lubed: The contact points of the head and spring arms, as well as the hitch ball, should be kept clean and well-lubricated with a good quality bearing grease.

They should be cleaned and lubricated before each trip.

Check for damage or abnormal wear at the beginning of each towing day and replace it if necessary.

Use a rag to clean dirt and road grit from all contact points regularly.

DO NOT lubricate where the spring arms contact the brackets. This is how the e2 hitch provides sway control.

Lubricating these two spots will greatly reduce (or eliminate) the hitches ability to control trailer sway.

Not Intended For Rough Roads

The Fastway e2 hitch manual states the following: "Do not tow your trailer on rough roads. Do not tow your trailer through profound ditches, dips, or swales. Excessive strain on the spring arms and hitch head may cause hitch fatigue or failure."

If you are a heavy boondocker, or otherwise find yourself frequently towing your trailer down rough/bouncy/poor roads, then this is a consideration for you.

Our top choice for weight distribution hitches, the Andersen WDH, claims to not have this problem with their unique chain setup. Something to consider...

  • This article was FANTASTIC. Thank you so much. We just picked up our first travel trailer yesterday (and the dealer guided us to this hitch.) That was great. Until I got home and had no idea how to unhook it (although they showed me, I needed to be showed about 20 more times) or hook it back up again! I’m much more confident after reading this and watching the video.

    • Funny you say that, Susan, about not knowing how to unhook it. I actually videoed the guy showing me how to install/deconstruct mine before I towed off the lot. What I failed to do was to watch that video again until I was really having a time installing it before every trip! Oops.

      I should have watched it a few times right out the gate.

      Super happy to hear the article here helped you out! As I’m sure you read, I HATED my E2 WDH, but some people have no problems with it. (Never mind that the dealer sold me one that was way too heavy for my trailer weight AND they installed the brackets incorrectly. This made everything about mine much worse.)

      I hope they sold you the correct weight one and installed it properly. Better than not having one at all!

      Enjoy your new RV!
