I have a FR 195bh on order. This smaller trailer has a book dry weight of 3000lb, max/loaded 3900lb, and a dry hitch weight of 400lb per the brochure. I'm not 100% sure I need a weight distribution + sway control setup, but I'm looking at them, especially since this is a single-axle.
I'm figuring by the time we load it down, add propane, battery, water, etc. plus stuff in the back of the truck, we are looking at ~6-700lb at the hitch... still not a lot compared to many of the bigger TTs.
Any recommendations? Hoping to not spend a fortune (one of the reasons we went w/ a smaller trailer) and something reasonably easy to install.
I was looking at the Curt Trutrack @ ~$350, but it's a 1klb rated system. Do you think that's too stiff? (note also the Equalizer website recommends a 1k-lb system if I plug 550 tongue weight and 100lb cargo weight into their calculator). This is what I would probably go with if it wouldn't be too stiff...
I was also looking at something more old school like this:
but would be willing to pay a few bucks more for simpler hook-up, easier install and less drilling into the trailer frame, etc...

thanks for your insights!
