When picking out a weight distribution system the most important factor to consider is the loaded tongue weight which includes the the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle.

Since your trailer has surge brakes you cannot use a weight distribution system with friction sway control or dual-cam sway control. Because of that I would recommend you go with a Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution system # RP66560 rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight. You will also likely need a pole tongue adapter # RP58393.

This system brake pad-like material to reduce sway. This is one of the best weight distribution systems available and should work very well for you.
