Best WD hitch for my setup

Hi, any thoughts on a WD hitch for my TT

27' gross weight 6200 lb dry weight 4201 and dry hitch 450 ? My TV is 2012 F150 5.0 screw payload 1600 gvw 7100. Have not had it weighed but did a few trips last fall and handled great, I have a sway control on hitch and worked great no sway. Just want to do it right and safe. Been looking at Reese 66073 strait line and pro series 49902 . Is there a WD hitch without sway as I already have that? Sorry for long post

Yes. The Reese Strait-Line # 66073 is composed of two parts, the 26002 dual cam sway control, and the 66021 WD hitch. Here's one source for the hitch without the sway control:
Reese Weight Distribution w/out Shank - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW Reese Weight Distribution RP66021

Notice that WD hitch does NOT include the shank, so you must also buy a WD adjustable shank for another $100 or so. Like this one:
Draw-Tite, Reese Weight Distributing Class III & IV Adjustable Shank 54970

The Reese part number 66021 WD hitch has trunnion bars rated for 800 pounds max tongue weight. If your TT has a GVWR over 5,500 pounds, you should probably go for a different part number that is rated for 1,000 or 1,200 pounds max tongue weight.

If your current sway control system is not a dual cam, then it probably won't be as effective as the dual cam. Think twice before you choose a good hitch with a less effective sway control setup.
Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
