BloeOx swaypro. Read the reviews on this and other forums, and I think you will find near 100% satifaction.
There are certainly numerous choices out there as to brands, but as another poster pointed out, proper set up is possibly the most important consideration no matter what brand or design you choose.

There is no such thing as overkill as regards best hitch type. Especially when fulltimng. Settting up a two vehicle combination on a set of certified scales to get formula values correct is worth the small amount of time & trouble.

The VPP hitches -- Pro Pride first, and Hensley second, -- are the standard for WD hitches with integrated antisway. Others resist sway, these "eliminate" it.

Second tier -- and a very long ways down -- would be the REESE Dual Cam, and then the Equalizer.

After that would be the standard friction bar type. A bad choice.

An Andersen "might" work if the TT had a tongue weight of a few hundred pounds. It is otherwise not suitable. Very few have been able to make it work according to any formula of correct WD hitch set-up. "Weight distribution" is a requirement and "anti-sway" is optional, so don't mistake one for the other in re opinions.

Thanks everyone for your response. It looks like I have a few options to consider. I will check out the threads for the different hitches.

After years of towing contentedly with a Reese Dual-Cam, I switched to ProPride about 9 months ago and I have never regretted the decision or the cost.

I have towed in red-flag conditions when even the 18-wheelers are parked and never felt the trailer except going downhill with a 40 knot wind directly at my back with the trailer trying to push the truck. Even then, no hint of sway.
