Search for "Cushioned Ball Mount", that is one option but usually a lot pricier than regular ball mounts. Or you can get one of the threaded pins that go through the ball mount and crank it down to eliminate some slop. Dont expect it to be as quiet as a truck would be, you will hear it due to the vehicle type and construction. The way it can be reduced is to make sure weight is properly distributed on the trailer so you have the right amount of tongue weight. Also there should be very little noise from movement at speed on the highway unless the trailer is very light or lightly loaded. City streets will usually make a racket so will stopping and starting.
