sway bar

I'm pulling a 16' Sport with a 2015 Ford Explorer. Looking for advice on Pro Pride or Hensley is one of these necessary on this light of a trailer?

No X 2. Just get the hitch height right.

Not really necessary for the weights involved, however....
It's never a bad thing to have more safety systems in place. Perhaps other forum people can cite examples through personal experiences.

Towing principles of the tow vehicle and trailer both being level still apply. A short light trailer can have more of a problem with fishtailing than a longer trailer. I agree that an expensive hitch may not be necessary. I would consider a simple weight distribution hitch with a friction sway bar.
