I use the 10000 lb version of this one Equal-i-zer® Hitch - The “American Original” with 4-Point Sway Control™ and Weight Distribution

Supposed to be a good unit. I've had no trouble with it. The website has a helpful guide.

I currently pull a 7500 lb trailer with a 2015 Chev diesel 3/4 ton. Very stable in some recent high winds.

I also use the Equal-i-zer hitch but my trailer only weighs about 5,700 lbs. loaded. It controls it very well. I bought it off Amazon for a little over $500 and free shipping.

The very best you can get is a Hensley Arrow or a Pro-Pride, but they are really pricey. My next choice is Equal-I-Zer or a Reese Dual Cam, and that is because of the built-in anti-sway capability. in my opinion, any of the built-in antisway mechanisms is superior to those with a side-mounted, friction type, sway device.
