Question about weight distributing hitches and sway bars

Are these things that are seperate from the towing vehicle and not permanently attached to it? In other words if you have a receiver hitch is there anything else you need to permanently attached to the vehicle for a weight distributing hitch and sway bar.

If you have a weight distributing ball mount, that is really the only hardware you need to connect sway and weight bars to the tow vehicle. You will need some gear on the RV and the only other things that I can think of that would be perm in the tow vehicle would be the brake controller and the electrical connection.

Take a look at this website for some basic pics:
