From bendy and floppy to flat and awesome! Added a weight distributing hitch to my tow setup and it made a world of difference. Trailer is around 2200lbs loaded with electric brakes, acceleration is poor (obviously) but braking and handling is vastly improved over a straight ball hitch. Ground clearance is no longer a concern either.

For anyone towing more than 1000lbs, I highly recommend a weight distributing hitch! The kit is about $400 (incl. tax), but it's well worth the expense.
