Suggestions for a Weight Distribution Hitch

Hi. I am new to towing and my now new tow vehicle - 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 with Advanced tow package and integrated brake controller - states I will get around 11,000 lbs towing weight with a Weight Dist. Hitch. TW, 1100 lbs. Front Gross Axel Wt: 3800, Rear Gross Axel Wt: 4150 max Tires: 275/60R20, Bridgestones I have ordered a FR Surveyor 202RBLE, Dual Axles, UVW: 4931 lbs, (brochure) Hitch Weight: 497 lbs. (unloaded) CCC: 2566 lbs. (I will NOT be loading to max weight here) Ext. Height: 11’2”, Ext. Width: 96”, Ext. Length: 24’4” I’m considering: Andersen WDH with Sway control, Husky Centerline TS, Equalizer 4 point or ??? I want: EASY hook up and unhook, to be able to back up and hook and unhook at ANY angle, QUIET operation while under tow, lightest weight and simplest maintenance… all while providing excellent sway control and weight distribution! Is this too much to ask??? I would like your thoughts as this is an important piece of information that I need prior to delivery of my trailer! Which of these would you recommend with my RIG situation? or another brand completely? And why would one be better over another? Thanks for your help.

RE: Jeep Gladiator Overland Tow vehicle

Thanks to everyone that left a comment. LOTS to think about... Either buy the trailer and look for another tow vehicle or keep the Jeep and go with something lighter! Yikes!

Jeep Gladiator Overland Tow vehicle

Hello, I am new to the forum, but not RVing. New to towing, always had a motorhome. I have a Jeep Gladiator Overland. 8-sp Auto trans, with tow package, class IV hitch. Manual states 6,000# tow ability, 600# hitch weight, 1083# max payload, 11,100 GCWR. Specs state a frontal area of 40ft. I have a Redarc Tow-pro Elite Brake Controller installed. I want to tow a FR Surveyor Legend 202RBLE, dual axles, UVW 4931# (brochure), hitch weight: 497#, CCC: 2566# (I doubt I would ever load this much) ext. height 11'2", ext. width: 96", ext. length 24'4". I plan on using an Andersen WDH with Sway control. I don't load my truck down, normally solo travel or only with one other person. Please comment on this rig so I can better figure out if this is the correct tow vehicle for this trailer or visa/versa. I haven't ordered the trailer but do own the 2021 JT. Thanks for your comments!
