Fastway E2 Hitch

Working on a deal to buy a new 2011 Jay Flight 24RKS, the dealer wants to put a Fastway E2 Trunnion Anti sway Hitch on my TV. I can't seem to find much in the way of reviews on this hitch. Does anyone use this hitch out there??? Any constructive thoughts on this hitch?
I was leaning toward an Equal-i-zer.

I guess this is it in the link? Sure looks a lot like an Equalizer.

I believe they are made by the same company, the Fastway claims 2 way sway control and the Equalizer claims 4 way sway control.
Dont reallly understand the difference between them

tls001,

Welcome to the Jayco forums.

Never heard anything about this particular WDH manufacture or product before, but that doesn't mean that it's a bad product.

Personally, I would push for your RV dealership to provide an Equal-i-zer brand product, or Reese brand product....., they both have reliable/well known WDH's with integrated sway control.

The "2-way" and "4-way" difference may be reference to points of friction contact, or points of sway resistance (force of).

Bob

So the e2 is made by equalizer its just a 2 point system rather then a 4 point. I have the 1000/10000 that I used on a 20 foot prowler and it worked awesome. I later upgraded to a Jayco 29bhs and the hitch is a little overloaded now. Still works great as long as there is no wind. I would get it again in a heart beat if I had a shorter trailer. If you want more info just ask I will be on my computer later I phone is hard to type on.

I just bought one of these, it's being delivered tomorrow. I will try to give my review on this when after I install it and use it a couple of times.

I have the E2. Dealer installed it last year and I have had no issues with it other than the brackets on the TT frame "walking" slightly. The E2 is my first hitch so I have nothing to compare it to. The Equalizer hitch (on their main webpage) looks identical to my E2.

We had the e2 that we pulled our X23B with and it was fine. Like IraqVet, my spring perches walked a bit. The hitch was installed by the dealer and I tightened and tweaked it after a few outings. Like I said, it worked fine.

On my second X19 the dealer put an E2 on it. I really don't care for it since I had a Reese Dual cam on the first one. I wish I would have forced them to put another Reese on this one.

I don't like raising the rear tires almost off the ground to get the bars off. People love the Equalizer, but I just don't give it as much love.

Make sure if they install it, the bolts on the brackets are touching the frame. On my X19 the frame is too narrow. That let the brackets walk, and one time out, it spit the bar out of the bracket going down the road. I was lucky nothing was close to that side, or I would have done major damage or maimed someone. I took it back to the dealer, and they put screws in the brackets going into the frame, and shims between the bolts.

As far was sway, I was driving home at 60mph and we were getting wind gusts of 55mph and everything else on the road was getting thrown around like a rag doll. My X19 and Tundra never felt a thing with the brackets properly locked down, and I never slowed down or missed a beat.

oh snap, did not realize how the first post was lol.
