Bigfoot Shroud with Fastway E2 WDH

Am considering purchase of a Bigfoot 25B25FB travel trailer with front storage compartment and propane tank shroud.

Would like to use a Fastway E2 weight distribution hitch (WDH) with sway bars.

Will this WDH system work with the shroud in place? Must there be some modifications made to the shroud? Would another WDH work without the need for modifications?

See photo of Bigfoot with shroud, Fastway E2 WDH, and Fastway E2 WDH installed on non-shrouded trailer.

Thanks

GG, I do believe there have been a few members use a WDH and had to cut/trim a bit of the storage box at the frame. Don't think they had any issues by doing that. Hopefully a couple will be along soon.

I recently installed the Andersen WDH on my 17.5 CB 2500 Bigfoot. After researching just about every WDH on the planet I, chose the Andersen for the following reasons.
1. With their chain configuration set up, you can position the brackets that attach to both sides of the frame anywhere from a minimum of 16" from the coupler to any distance you need to fit in between the LPG tanks, batteries, shroud etc. And the brackets simply bolt on without the need to drill or weld them onto the frame.
2. The total weight of all components is significantly less than any of the bar systems.
3. You can store all of the components except the hitch head when not using them in a shoe box.
4. This hitch performs quieter, smoother and with virtually no problem when backing up or making tight turns, unlike most of the bar systems.
5. Once the components are installed for your trailer, removing and reinstalling the hitch when parking at an RV park etc. when travelling is a lot easier than the bar systems, even my wife can do it.

Go to Andersen Hitches | Trailer Hitches, Ball Mount Hitches for their web site and complete product description and installation videos.

All the best,
Ken

We had wdh with cutouts in shroud. Not sure about the Anderson. It doesn't support the weight as well per reviews I have read but it is light. You have to hook up at same angle as disconnected or fool around with it.
