For a trailer with a loaded tongue weight of 900 lbs the Blue Ox SwayPro system you'd want is the part # BXW1000 as it has a tongue weight range of between 750 lbs - 1,000 lbs. Your coupler is not underslung too which means the # BXW1000 is a fit. I attached a picture of what an underslung coupler looks like for you to check out as well.

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.
