Exclamation Towing with a ML320 Fiberglass TT

Hi:
I am towing a fiberglass Travel Trailer with a gross weight of 2,300 lbs.
I was wondering if I need a Weight Distribution Hitch or an Equalizer Hitch.

My car is a ML 320 2001 is rated for towing 5000 lbs, I had towed before My trailer and no complaints, The reason I ask, is because I found a lot of opinions about the WDH and EH, I am searching for opinion based in experience as well as how affects Your car in the long run will be appreciated.

Thanks In Advance.
BF

NO.
ML is one of the best TV (tow vehicles) in the World.
Unlike most of pickup, it has short rear overhang and stiff rear suspension what cuts fishtailing very efficiently.
I was towing 6000lb boat with it just fine.
ENJOY.
