14k will be too much. OP do some research on configuring the Equalizer. I believe there is a break point somewhere in their setups where the shank is upgraded to a 14k shank (not bars) regardless of the weight of the bars. Look for that break point and get the 14k shank in the event you want to get a larger trailer in the future. You can get the bars at whatever weight you want but don't take a 10k shank (I think that is the next level down if I recall). I can't remember exactly but I think the break point is 10k for the shank. If so, and 1k bars you should be good to go.

I would try to find someone who specializes in hitches. Reading through the forums here, it seems like some RV dealers have been less than brilliant at selecting and setting up WD hitches. Also, a specialist business is likely to have a wider selection of brands and models.
In our case, we got our rig set up by a business not far from our trailer dealer. This business specializes, as I mentioned, and advised us based on what I wanted from the rig. I wanted something quick and easy to hook up, but which would give a solid secure towing experience. The dealer advised a Husky Centerline hitch for us. It was expensive and as described by the dealer, the Husky took all the good bits of the Equalizer and improved it. Our experience with the Husky has well and truly proven the claims made by the dealer.
The Husky hitch incorporates WD as well as anti-sway with only two bars to connect up.

I use the Equalizer 4pt sway control and I recommend it. Also, if you don’t have them already, you may want to consider light truck tires for your tow vehicle instead of passenger tires. Light truck tires usually say LT before the tire size on the sidewall.
