Best Hitch to buy

Greetings again, and thanks in advance for advice.
I did buy the new 2014 Palomino Puma 27 SBU that I had found on the internet. I planned to buy used, but got a screaming deal on this one! It will weigh about 11,000 lbs fully loaded. I have a Ford F-350 Dually to pull it with. I have pulled a horse trailer before with my old Ford F-250, but this will be twice as long and twice as heavy. I want a stablizer/anti-sway/wt distribution hitch, correct? I am not sure if I am using correct terminology, but guessing you all will set me straight.

Best hitch? some would say the Hensley. But for this trailer being pulled by a dually, something like the Equalizer 4 would work fine for a lot less than the Hensley. The EQ 4 is what I use, I have a dually pulling my Fuzion, do not need the weight distribution so much, but more for the sway control.

Thanks tmm2good. I am running into walls here. The dealer I am buying the trailer from will install a Husky weight distributing anti sway hitch for $700. The shop that installs hitches here in Flagstaff is looking into the Curt hitch (that is all they sell!) Has anyone heard of either of these?

Best is Henry Szymt's ET. Depending on your weights it may be an over kill.

Husky and Curt are both similar to the Equalizer I mentioned. but, 700 seems about double what the cost should be, I did a quick internet search and both the curt and husky for the 1400 lbs setup run about 300-350bucks.

That looks like a 5th wheel hitch.. The OP is pulling a TT TH.
