I believe don't you have to have a WDH and sway, but will probably like the way the trailer tows better with them.

I have a 25 ft and 2019 F350. I have towed with the hitch and just on the ball. I believe the ride is smoother with the WDH.

^X2 the one ton 27' is plenty stable if the trailer is loaded correctly. But the hitch will improve the ride a bit, improve steering response and handling performance. Sway damping will reduce the occasional sideways motion in wind and when passing semis.

No, you don't need weight distribution with a 2020 F350. You'll hardly know the trailer is back there and it will tow wonderfully. A 25 ft Airstream is basically an empty shell and won't come close to the maximum weight that truck is designed to tow. If in doubt, drop it on a hitch and give it a trial tow. You'll be amazed at how well the truck does with nothing but a hitch ball and safety chains.
