When we bought our trailer it was used, the dealer set up the hitch that came with the trailer, a ProSeries with SC built in. At the time the trailer was not loaded, I have finally gotten it to where I am comfortable with it. It takes some tweaking...as far as loading the trailer and adjusting.

They usually do, mine was so bad on my first Trailer 2012 Shasta Revere 27RLSS 6700 dry and hitch 900#'s that if I had not reset mine from scratch I would have stopped camping it was so bad to drive with. I have learned to measure, set, test and reset so well now, that our Anderson makes towing a dream. Never rely on the dealer especially when they throw in the wrong size hitch for free. I will use my Anderson until I go to a 5er

I have a 2306 and pull it with my '11 Frontier Pro4x crew cab. I don't have any problems with power. Just be sure to get an equalizer hitch. Also average around 11mpg when towing - which I consider to be good. Where will you mostly be towing?

I am pretty sure that my WDH (fastway e2) is setup wrong from the dealer.

Edit: yep, I'm 100% sure that it's wrong, unless the L-brackets are supposed to move!!

I think you'll be fine, honestly. I'm moving up to a Titan, but not for power reasons. It's for payload reasons. My tongue weight is also higher than the 2109s. I do really like the layout of the 2109s.

sgt, if your brackets are moving on your trailer with the fastway e2 it is an indicator of problem, perhaps even loose bolts. or too tight bolts Check your manual and make sure they are positioned perpendicular to tt frame at the correct distance on both sides. It's common to realign and check proper tightness of bolts, don't overtighten as they can cause the "hanger-plates" to bow if over tightened.
Have a large torque wrench and sockets if you go further
I wish I had assembled my hitch from scratch before pdi with a little supervision.

Both of the "hanger brackets" look bowed out like this. I'll dig out a torque wrench this weekend and do it properly.

So my question is this, (I have a husky weight distribution hitch with the round bars and the chains.) When you transfer weight from the tongue to the vehicle drive axle, are you also transferring weight back to the trailer axles? This is something I really don't want to do as my axle load is already where I want it. I have a 860 pounds of tongue weight which I can easily handle on the TV. I don't want to transfer any of that back to my trailer axle if possible.
