There should be spring bars that go into that hitch from the bottom. I don't see any kind of connection to hold the spring bars in place, though. The spring bars will probably have chains on the other end that hook to the 2 brackets on the frame near the propane tanks.
If the owners have the spring bars, then you should have both weight distributing and sway control.
You may need to adjust the hitch head up or down to get the proper ball height, and may need to tilt the hitch head to get proper weight distributing. Take some big wrenches with you.
It might be tough knowing how much to adjust the tilt, without doing fender measurements. If a "persuader" bar is included with the snap up brackets, it should take some strength to snap up the bracket with the chain connected. That might get you in the ballpark of correct adjustment for the trip home. To tweak the system, you will need to do fender measurement or check your weights at a truck scale.
Don't know the specifics of that WDH, but is is probably good to have at least 5 chain lengths under tension between the snap up bracket and spring bars to allow some "swing" when you turn.
