I got the E2 on my trailer. Just picked up and drove back a few weeks ago. This is my first travel trailer and first wdh so nothing to compare to. Only towed a small utility trailer before

It is nice. They set it up there. On the trip back I didn't notice any sway. Hookup etc is fine. I did get the electric jack so easy.

When first left after picking it up I did notice some porpoising but thinking that was just the hitch weight being off? We just threw our gear in and took off. Once the tanks had water in them and gear more organized that seemed to mostly go away.

Once I get it all set up and organized I'll get it weighed so I know total weight. I ordered one of the Sherline tongue weight scales so I can check it any time and adjust

Good info Jeff... thanks for posting this here.

ETI specifically said to me that for the 21' they suggest the e2.

We are getting the e2.



i cant see any reason we would not like it.

Is the E2 that Escape supplies the Fastway 92-00-0600 Trunnion Weight Distribution Hitch?

cheaper on Amazon $339 with free shipping, but we are limited on space and they will install it in Chilliwackey.

That wouldn't be surprising, since the Pro Series is the same type (trunnion) and tongue weight rating (600 pounds). It seems to me that the 92-00-0600 - trunnion with 450 pound rating - would be a better match for an Escape 17', but there's no indication in the Escape web pages whether or not the model of E2 varies with the model of trailer.

Jeff,

Just to be sure I understand it correctly, does the wdh that you had installed by ETI, and the one that is shown on my build sheet as "E2 by FastWay Integrated Sway Control and Weight Distribution Hitch" look like the attached photo?
