The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C13193 is going to be the better option of the two based on the finishes for the Curt over the etrailler. The Curt has a gloss black powder coat finish over protective base coat that offers superior rust resistance. This hitch is confirmed to fit your 2019 Ford Transit T250 van. It bolts to your frame with included hardware and does not require any drilling or welding. I have attached a couple of pictures of this hitch installed so you can see how clean the hitch looks once on the van. Yes, you will have to remove your tow hook. I have linked an installation video below.

To control your trailer's lights and brakes you will want the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness w Brake Controller Adapter - 7 Way Trailer Connector item # 22114. This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side and passenger's-side tail lights. This harness also includes a plug and play adapter for a Tekonsha Brake Controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller item # 90195. This is a proportional brake controller that activates your trailer brakes in proportion to your Transit's braking action. It automatically adjusts the trailer's braking based on deceleration of your vehicle. The brakes activate immediately, there is no pausing like with time-delayed brake controllers. I have attached a couple of installation videos that will guide you through the process of installing and setting up these two parts.

To round out your towing setup I recommend the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches item # C45534. This towing kit will provide you with a 2" ball and a fixed ball mount with a 3/4" rise and 2" drop. It also includes a hitch pin and clip, hitch receiver lock with keys, hitch cover, and a storage case.
