We've decided on a Grand Design 297RSTS travel trailer. Can't wait to get it, so much more room compared to our TC! I'm gonna pull it with a 15 F350 PSD CCSB SWR. The tongue weight will probably be about 950-1000lbs fully loaded. That's over our hitch rating of 850lbs for non weight distribution. I think I've got plenty of truck for this 34' trailer but I'm gonna need sway control and some weight distribution. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've read good things about an Anderson, a Curt and a Reese. What are you using and what works good for you. I'm leaning towards the Anderson but I have no real world experience with these hitches.
TIA

Any of them properly set up with the hitch weight of an appropriate amount should do fine.

You might want to consider an Equalizer with 4 point sway control. Loved the one I had.

I use a Reese with dual antisway bars. Tracks straight and true.
