I paid over $600 at the stealership.

My cousin bought the same hitch as mine on craigslist for $300

I have the same TT and used the Equalizer 1200lb and it levels perfect.

I also have the same TT and use the Reece duel cam WDH.

My observations when I was towing that TT with a 1/2 ton. (Toyota Tundra). Recently upgraded to 3/4 Ton.

My 1/2 ton towed the Trailer fine but I knew it was back there. I noticed that if I tightened up on the weight distribution bars to much (making my tongue lighter). I would get some front end sway from my TV. At least that's what it felt like.

I used the same WDH on a smaller trailer, 5500 lbs (same truck) and had absolutely no issues with the set up.

I'm not sure if the hitch was set up right the second time around or the fact that I was over weight on my TV. Or maybe it was a combination of the two.

That unit has a GVWR of 8580 lbs so a 10k hitch with 1000lb bars should be perfect. I also use a Blue Ox and have for 3 years and over 12,000 miles with nary an issue with sway and we have towed in some pretty good side winds. I had a DUal Cam prior and it worked good as well so I think the choice is really yours. You may also want to consider the Anderson hitch as it seems to be getting some good preliminary reviews on here and the Airstream guys for the most part seem to like it.
