"towing system" = hitch?

You'll find many people satisfied with the mid-priced distribution+sway control hitches like Equal-i-Zer, Blue Ox Swaypro and Reese "dual cam". Personally I'm happy with my Blue Ox.

I towed for years with a basic Eaz-Lift with a friction sway bar... I was towing a fairly light trailer with a fairly heavy (half-ton) pickup and never had any big complaint about its behavior, but I prefer the Blue Ox for its quiet operation and fewer steps to hitch/unhitch.

I think the main thing is to have a good idea of your real tongue weight and cargo capacity and to buy the right capacity of hitch, so the weight distribution the hitch can provide is right for your setup. It's not a "bigger is better" thing, a 1000-lb-rated hitch for a 500-lb tongue weight is not likely to be a nice performer, for example.
