Husky brand WD hitch?

There is an ad in the paper for a Husky 10,000 WD hitch and 1000 pound bars with a sway control device fror $350.
I have three questions: Is husky a good brand? If I have a 1970 sovereign with a weight of about 6000 lbs and a tongue weight of about 600 lbs, is this hitch too much for me? Finally, is $350 too much to pay? I can get a brand new Curt system from a dealer in town for less.
Thanks, Greg

Husky is a mediocre WD system

Had it on my very first trailer, a KZ Frontier. It provides weight distribution only and does a pretty good job at that, but no anti-sway capability, whatsoever. If you're going to spend that much I'd pickup an Equilizer 4-point anti-sway system. It not only provides weight distribution but also anti-sway.
