Equal-i-zer, Reese Dual Cam, Blue OX, and Andersen all make good hitches. I am partial to the Equal-i-zer (4-point - not the e2). These all have sway control built-in.
You might also want to consider Propride and Hensely.
I think this is the trailer that you bought - A Coachman Freedom Express 292BHDS. If so, it is a long trailer at 33'5" but fairly lightweight for its length with a dry weight of 5,492 and a CCC of 1,306lbs. This means you can have it up to 6,800lbs if you fully loaded the trailer. By the way, this is from the Coachman website but I have seen dealer sites that list the GVWR as 7,600.
A fully loaded trailer of 6,800lbs implies an estimated tongue weight of 800-1000lbs at 12-15% so I would suggest the 1,000lb bars if you decide to go with the Equal-i-zer.
A fully loaded trailer of 7,600lbs implies an estimated tongue weight of 900-1140lbs at 12-15%; but 988lbs if you use a reasonable 13% TW. Still think the 1,000lb bars are appropriate.
Hope this helps!
