I need an anti sway, weight distribution hitch for a 1977 Airstream Sovereign weight about 5200 lbs being towed with a 2019 Nissan Armada. The ball needs to be a 2 5/16. Thanks

For a weight distribution system that has built in sway control you are going to want the Blue Ox 2-Point Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control item # BLU65FR. This system has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 800 lbs which is typically 10% - 15% of your trailer's total weight.

The Blue Ox system uses L-brackets that keep the spring bars in place for a rigid system that holds your trailer in line. A 2-5/16" hitch ball is included along with a 2" shank that has a maximum drop of 2-3/4" and a maximum rise of 6-1/2".

I have linked an installation video below.

I also recommend the Classic Accessories Tow Bar and Weight Distribution Tote item # CA80113. This heavy duty bag is perfect for storing your weight distributing hitch. It is 36" x 11" Wide x 8" Tall and has padding that prevents damage to your hitch and prevents dings to your vehicle's cargo area from shifting gear.
