I think you would be wise to go with a WD hitch and sway control. That unit has a 850# hitch weight before adding any options, water, gas, and cargo. I would go for a Reese Strait-Line Hitch, it has dual cam sway control built in. You will need 1200# bars. There are a couple other brands out there but that is the only one I have had experience with. With the WD hitch the weight is distributed between the truck and the trailer making everything level and it helps to maintain the weight on the truck's front wheels for better steering.
Also, get a good brake controller like a Tekonsha Prodigy.
Hopefully you will get some more suggestions.
