The most important thing to consider in choosing a weight distribution system is your total tongue weight. This will include the trailer tongue weight which is usually 10-15% of the total weight of the trailer, and any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. I've attached some articles for you.

My recommendation for a weight distribution system with sway control for your 2007 Weekend Warrior FSC 3200 is the Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 17,000 lbs GTW, 1,700 lbs TW, # RP66075. This system is unique in its design to actually prevent sway with its dual cam sway control. The trunnion spring bars constantly apply pressure to both sides helping your trailer to stay straight, but the system allows the bars to overcome the cam for cornering without binding. The system is able to be fine tuned to your preferences to make your towing experience easier and more enjoyable. It does require a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball like # 63840.

This system is designed for 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers but requires the head be purchased seperately. The necessary head is available in two different rise or drop heights because some people prefer taller trucks while still desiring to tow safely. The Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank - Trunnion Only - 5-3/4" Drop, 8-1/4" Rise - 1,700 lbs TW is # RP54977 and the Reese Titan Weight Dist Shank - 1-1/4" Drop, 5-1/4" Rise - 1,700 lbs is # RP54976.

If this system isn't large enough based on your actual total tongue weight, I would then recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Clamp On - 20,000 lbs GTW, 2,000 lbs TW, # BXW2000. This system will require a hitch ball like # C40086. This system uses tension in the head at the spring bars as the sway control and avoids the noisy friction sway control used by most systems.
