Mike, it really is, sway control and load distribution all in one.

Drop some pressure in the air bags and see if that helps the sway problem.

I towed with a 2500 silverado for year. If you get a good weight distributing hitch and balance your load it can tow pretty well with minimal sway. I put air bags in the back of my truck so when the rig was loaded and ready to go I could level the truck back to its normal ride height.

The hitch 1320 recommended is the one it get. It's a nice product and it works. Just as important is getting your tongue weight of your trailer loaded ready to go. No less than 10% tongue weight maybe shoot for 12%.

One thing that helped my sway issues was to measure the front and back of the trailer when loaded and connected to the tow vehicle on a level surface. The front should be an inch to 1.5" higher in the front.

You can ad a friction type sway control to get even more control if you don't want to invest in the model suggested.

A way to get rid of 95% of the sway is with a dually. A lot of sway is eliminated with all that rubber.
When towing if you are one lane from the Jersey barrier when being passed the wind pressure is amplified plus those SUVs push a lot of air almost as much as the block busses and tractor trailers.
