Recommendation on hitch

Would like a recommendation on a hitch that has weight distribution and sway control. Would the equalizer sway bars mount well on the short A frame of trailer. I have a 183. Thank you.

For the 183, the cheaper E2 would be fine.
But the 4 point Equal-i-zer would also fit, if that's what you want.

Another vote for the 4 point Equalizer.

I know I'm going to get a lot of backlash..but, do you really need sway for your trailer? What's your tow vehicle? Have you towed it yet?

Have you pulled it yet? Don't want to get into an "I this" or "I that" but that is a full framed vehicle pulling 20 ft under 5k. You may not need sway control.

I have a 183 and an Equalizer hitch. I tow with a Ford Explorer. I have fought with the hitch, due to the newness and it being very stiff. But in the end, it tows beautifully. I tried to see if there was an easier hitch for me to handle, but I think I'm getting better with the hitch, and it's probably the best one anyway.

Unfortunately my tahoe has the lower gear ratio. Max towing 5200lbs
