Personally, I use an Air Safe hitch to keep all the rivets riveted on my Airstream when towing with a heavy pickup truck.
The Airstream is an American Classic, but she is a sensitive mistress.
Since you don't specify what trailer you own, either in your post or in your profile, it is difficult to evaluate your statement. However I am guessing you have a small to medium sized light weight vintage trailer. Towing that is an entirely different task than towing a newer heavier larger trailer.
An Airsafe hitch appears to have no sway control or dampening whatsoever. There are some who use an Airsafe with a ProPride to provide shock dampening They preform two entirely different functions. The only shock dampening with the ProPride is the flexing of the weight distribution bars. The only sway control with the Airsafe appears to be none.
There are many threads on these forums discussing the merits of sway control. There should be no need to do it again. If you find it is unnecessary for your set up and your comfort zone that is fine. However I, and others are willing to pay the extra money for a safer less demanding towing experience.
To each his own.
