Which Hitch Arrangement

I have an Argosy single axle 20'. I have a Ford F 250 Superduty diesel to tow it.
Do I need a stabilizer hitch or just a sway control? The tongue weight is only around 500 lbs and the truck is rated much higher.

I would suggest that you check out the Andersen WD sway control system. Might just be what you need.

You probably don't "need" either. Although I would think the previously mentioned Andersen hitch would suit you well. Even a small trailer like yours can generate some sway in certain conditions. So sway control would make for a better driving experience. The problem with some of the combined antisway/weight distribution hitches is that they require a certain amound of WD to be in effect in order to generate the friction needed for sway control. That is not the case with the Andersen.

I have no idea what you "need". I am pretty sure a Reese St Line with 600 lb bars will pull it fine though. As will most hitches. And I would set them resonably loose, to just put a little weight back on the front axle.
