To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

Based on the dry tongue weight of 675 pounds you will probably need a system rated for up to 1,000 pounds once the trailer is loaded and ready to tow. For a 1,000 pound system for a trailer with an underslung coupler we have a couple of options.

If you want to avoid drilling into the frame use # BXW1003 for clamp on brackets. These systems were specifically designed for underslung trailers. For either system you will also need a ball # 19286. I have linked a Blue Ox demo video of the SwayPro systems for you.

I have also included some links on weight distribution and determining tongue weight for you.
