Welcome to JOF
Since you already have the TV/HTT, the best way to eliminate all the guess work is load up your TV/HTT combination and visit your local CAT scale ($12). The information derived from the CAT scale will tell you if you need a WDH (weight distribution hitch), and if you do what size spring bar weight rating. The CAT data will also provide all weight information to compare against your TV/HTT weight limit specifications, and confirm that the proper weight remains on your TV's front axle (steering control).
If you find that a WDH isn't required, IMO you can never go wrong having a friction sway control bar (especially on a single axle trailer).
