BUILT-IN SWAY CONTROL
The Fastway e2™ hitches have the convenience of Integrated Sway Control™ built into the hitch; so you have sway control engaged whenever you are hitched up and towing. The e2™ utilizes unique sway control brackets instead of old ‘add-on’ sway bars or cam type attachments that are added to chain style hitches. Integrated sway control offers many benefits including no backing or turning restrictions, and simple and easy to understand adjustments. Built with sway control in mind, the e2™ hitch is better than a chain style hitch with add-on sway control devices.
SWAY CONTROL BRACKETS
The unique rigid sway control brackets provide the convenience of integrated Sway Control™ through two points of linear steel on steel friction. Instead of the spring arm swinging back and forth freely at the bottom of a chain, e2’s spring arms rest on top of a bare metal bracket. This improvement alone significantly reduces driver fatigue and stress while towing, not to mention making it easier to use than chain style hitches on the market.
Without proper weight distribution drivers can experience highway hop, loss of steering control, and sagging of the tow vehicle.
The e2 hitch changes the way the tow vehicle and trailer couple together. It creates a bridge between them, helping them work together like one unit instead of two, and distributing the weight more evenly to the axles of both vehicles. When set up properly, the steering wheels will stay more firmly planted on the ground.

Excellent product Review by Mark VermeerenWorks as intended and van is nice to tow.(Posted on 8 June 2023)
When do I use a trunnion / straight bar hitch and when would I rather opt for a round bar hitch?
It depends on the depth of the A-frame and where the coupling is situated. The trunnion hitch is designed for an underslung coupling and will provide more ground clearance. The round bar hitch is designed for coupling above the tow bar and provides more clearance from the A-frame.
How do I know what the maximum tow ball weight is?
The max tow ball weight is usually indicated on the product listing and it is calculated as 10% of the gross trailer mass (GTM). The use of a Weight Distribution Hitch does NOT increase the max tow ball capacity.
Can I still use a Weight Distribution Hitch if I have electric brakes on my caravan?
Yes, you can. However, it is important to note that the WDH will inhibit the manual override function of the electric brakes. You are still able to use a WDH, but you need to allow for harder braking.
Can these be used on any vehicle?
It is always best to check with the car manufacturer when determining whether you need a WDH. Some cars have automatic leveling systems or towbar constraints that don't allow the use of WDH.
Is the D035 coupling compatible with the Fastway Flash E Series Ball Mounts?
No, the D035 is not compatible with the Fastway Flash E Series Ball Mounts.
Are Weight Distribution Hitches the same as anti-sway devices?
No, weight distribution hitches (WDH's) are not anti-sway devices. Some WDH's do however reduce sway, but only those that specify that this is the case.
What are the best Weight Distribution Hitches on the market?
The safest and best pro-active sway control devices on the market is the FASTWAY e2 and Andersen WD Sway Control Hitches. These are the only Weight Distribution Hitches on the market with integrated Sway Control as standard
Is there any additional devices I can purchase that will reduce swaying?
Weight Distribution can assist, but alone will not prevent the motion of sway occurring while towing at speed. Typically you will need to purchase additional Anti-sway bars or dampening arms to your Weight Distribution Hitch to prevent sway. These combinations can become quite clunky and cumbersome to use. The FASTWAY e2 and Andersen WD Sway Control Hitches come with integrated Sway Control as standard.
What is the purpose of a Weight Distribution Hitch?
Weight Distribution Hitches prevent the rear of a tow vehicle from sagging when the weight of the caravan or trailer is added to the tow ball. In this way the front of the tow vehicle and the rear of the caravan or trailer does not lift.
Can I adjust the shank height?
Yes you can adjust the shank height if needed.
How do I know I need a weight distribution hitch?
You need to ensure the car and the caravan are completely level on all angles. Before you hitch up, measure the gap in the wheel arches of all wheels on both car and van. Hitch the van up, re-measure all points. If the difference is more than 20mm you will require a WDH.
How do I choose a Weight Distribution Hitch for my vehicle?
You need to take the following into consideration when selecting a WDH:
- How much weight your caravan puts on your tow ball
- How much room you have on the A-frame to mount the WDH
- The types of brakes your caravan or trailer has
- The height of your tow ball
Read the product information carefully for each WDH you are considering to ensure they meet all your requirements.
Do I need an adaptor of any sorts like the Haymen Reece Standard WDS needs an adaptor kit to use the DO35 on it?
An adapter is not required
