It is the Fastway E2, model 92-00-0600. And I bought it from here, great price, fast and free shipping.

That is a good price, did it come with a ball?

And I should add that the install was pretty easy, I just really needed someone to help me tighten some of the bolts. And once installed, set up is easy, and you don't have to undo anything when backing into a camp site. There are some really good you-tube videos about the install, and the instructions that came with it were very good also.

Jim, no matter where you order it from, it doesn't come with a ball. I had seen in the add that it required a hitch ball with 1.25" diameter shaft, and not knowing much about hitch balls, I assumed that was a standard one that I could just go down to the local U-haul and pick up at the last minute. Well, I was wrong, and no one had one in stock. But the U-haul shop did have reducer bushings that would work with a 1" diameter, and the instructions indicated that this is OK, so that is what I went with.
