I have an option for you, but using a hitch extender like the Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender # RM-071-1075 will lower the tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch receiver by 50%, and you would not want to use your sway control with it.

You mentioned that you are looking for a short hitch extender, so depending on how much you are looking for an extended ball mount like the Hidden Hitch Ball Mount # 80232 which measures 15-3/4" from the center of the hitch ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole, or the Curt Class III Drawbar # C45270 which measures 13" from the center of the hitch ball hole to the center of the hitch pin hole would be your best option.

The # 80232 has a maximum tongue weight rating of 600lbs and maximum trailer weight rating of 6000lbs, where the # C45270 has a maximum tongue weight rating of 750lbs and a maximum trailer weight rating of 7500lbs. Both options would work with your sway control.

If your current hitch ball does not have a 1" shank you will need 2" hitch ball # 63845 or 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40007.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
