There are a number of threads on this hitch and I personally own one. I've never used anything else, so I'm biased, just note that. But I do love it. It's easy to hook up and unhook, light, and it controls sway really well. The one con I constantly saw during my research was it's inability to transfer weight for heavier tongue weights. For your application, at 500lbs, I think it would work awesomely. My TW ranges from 650-820lbs depending on load and I haven't had any issues.
