Fast way e2 hitch ?

The dealer I'm looking at getting my TT at carries the e2 and I will need a wdh when I buy so I was wondering if they are good ? Any input will help. Thanks

We had one for our X23B for 2.5 yrs and had no real complaints. It was easy to hook up but the spring perches did walk a bit on one side. It was installed by a dealer and a little tightening solved the issue.

I hear the E2 is okay but there are better ones. Hensley (too much $$) and Equal-i-zer come to mind, I put the Equal-i-zer on mine and can't believe how good it pulls the TT without any sway at all. It has 4 points of sway control and keeps the TT straight even in a 40mph cross wind (that was the day I pulled the new TT 85 miles home).Good luck on your purchase and enjoy!!

The dealer made me a "deal" on the Fastway E2 when I purchased my trailer. I will say it's just okay. My problem with it is that I'm at my maximum on the hitch with little to no extra capacity (1000/10000 with round bars, last weigh in, TW was about 950). It does distribute the weight properly, and it does control sway pretty well as far as I can tell, so I just can't say it's a "bad" hitch because it's not.

If I had it to do over again, I would negotiate for an Equal-i-zer 1200/12000 with trunnion bars (Fastway doesn't have a 1200/12000 in this configuration). Not that there's anything particularly wrong with the E2; it IS easy to use, and quality seems to be pretty good. But I just think there are better hitches for not a lot more money. And in my eyes, the hitch is not somewhere to cheap out... All this being said, replacing my E2 with an Equal-i-zer is on my short-list of purchases.
