We're using the E2 weight distribution hitch as well I absolutely love that thing, it makes a world of difference!

    You might try calling E2 customer support. They may have a solution or its possible that shank from another brand such as equal-I-zer may be compatible.
    if you did not know, The Fastway E2 hitches are made by the Progress Mfg. Inc same company that makes and sells the Equal-I-zer hitch.
    I called e2 support today and they said it should be fine to use the reducer sleeve. Thanks for all your input.
