Towing with new MB GL350

Anyone out there towing the AS with a newer model (2013--2015) GL350? If so, what type of anti-sway hitch are you using and did you install electronic brake controller? Also, any mods to the factory hitch?
Thanks much. I'm Planning to tow a 25' Flying Cloud with the new GL.

I'm not the best one to answer, but I towed a 20' with a '05 ML500 and now tow a 25' with a '12 Dodge Durango, which is the same platform as a GL.

On both I used Reese Dual-cam with a Prodigy controller, no hitch mods.

You certainly will need a controller.

I tow with a 2012 GL350. Have an Equal-i-zer hitch and Prodigy brake controller. Assuming the 2013+ is the same as the 2012, the factory tow package is prewired with the wires under the driver's side dash. I extended the wires into the center console compartment and installed the controller inside the compartment out of sight.
