Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. My first impression was to just get the WD hitch with integrated sway control. But someone told me this would actually be detrimental to the light trailer and cause it to "porpoise" while driving down the highway. No one has commented on this so I assume no one reading this thread has had this experience(?).

Not sure it would be detrimental or cause porpoising if you got the correct weight bars that correspond to your trailers tongue weight- 400# bars, 600# bars, 800# bars, 1,000# bars, 1,200# bars, or 1,400# bars...

If anything it will reduce the porpoising. The way it's putting torque between the truck and trailer is in a direction counter to porpoising. For such a small trailer get some light bars, that way they will have a good amount of spring, and be able to flex well.

After having a Reese, Andersen and Blue Ox, I prefer the Blue Ox. Just remember that you need at least 1" bend in the weigh transfer bars. Do not use 1,000 # bars on an AS with 750 # tongue weight. You will not get the proper bend. There is a forum dedicated to Blue Ox. You may want to check it out.

I had a terrible experience with the Andersen. Due to so much forward pressure required, it deformed by locking lever requiring a new coupler.

This is one of the reasons I went with the Andersen No Sway.
It is completely adjustable. It does not have incremental steps like bars do. Also the sway is dependent on how much tongue weight you have.
