I have a '99 GMC Sierra and I need a hitch. I'm hoping to get a hybrid travel trailer and I want to use a weight distribution setup.

What would you recommend for the receiver hitch? Square or round tube? Any specific brands?

Thanks!

I'd suggest doing some homework ahead of time on the factory receiver too. Some Chevy and GMC OE receiver hitches have a problem with flexing when a weight distribution system is attached. That said, I'd get a Reese Dual Cam for it. Some say the round tube system can go closer to the ground, but since the bars stick down from the hitch head that seems incorrect to me. I have the round bar system and it works as advertised.

I'd go with the Putnam XDR receiver. It's rated a little higher than what you are getting ready to pull. But, when you deside to get a bigger trailer, you will be good to go.
