Reese High Performance or Strait-Line HD and anti-sway bars?

Hi,

I;m looking for any advice for the WD and anti-sway bars below:

High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System
High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System, 1,200 lbs TW / 12,000 lbs GTW Reese Weight Distribution 66156
or
Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System
Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System 1,200lbs TW / 12,000 lbs GTW Reese Weight Distribution 66074

I didn't choose the correct models for the weight of the trailer, I just put the links to show the different models. The trailer is a 26' 4600lb.

The dealer have both and said the first one (High performance) should be good enough for the trailer.
What is the difference between them, can you share your experience?
I would like to prevent the sway to happen, I heard the Strait-Line is better to prevent and the High Performance will help to reduce when the sway start to happen, is that true?

Thanks,
Marcelo

I talked with a person on the service department where I got my new trailer.
He told me the High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System is good enough for the size of the trailer that I got, the Dual Cam will be an overkill and will not make any diference that will justify upgrading to the Dual Cam.

I decided to stay with the High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System, lets see how that will work out.

I worry about the sway that can happen if a big truck pass by on the other direction. Hope this system prevent that.

Just an update...

The Reese High Performance didn't fit on the trailer. I ended up upgrading to the Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System.

I did drive only 50 miles with it, so, not much to say other than this thing makes a lot of noise when turning. Hope this is normal as the bars are under heavy pressure there.

Thanks.
