Chevy 1500 and 2015 23D International towing info?

I Have a 2014 Chevy 1500 with a GV of 7000. 1000 lbs more than max for the AS which I doubt I will ever come within 500 lbs of reaching. The more I read the more confused I get... Lots of opinions out there... Is it enough? And I am considering a 4 pt equalizer vs a Hensley due to price and the common opinion that a Hensley is overkill for such a small trailer. Thoughts?

I have a 23' international. I don't think a ProPride is overkill by any means--just safer and easier to tow with a crew cab Tacoma. No sway problems at all.

Was less expensive and IMHO better engineered than the original Hensley design. In any case, a Hensley hitch setup is much more comfortable to tow in the wind or out with the big rigs. No lane departures from the wind.
