Expert Reply:

It sounds like you may have the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW1506 which is rated for a gross trailer weight of 15,000 lbs. If this is the case then you can use it to pull your trailer with a gross trailer weight of 7,000 lbs however, the system will not perform as well as one more accurately rated for the weight of the trailer. The spring bars will likely not have enough tension on them which is going to translate to less distribution and reduced sway control.

Therefore, I recommend changing out the spring bars you have now for a set that will be more accurately rated for your trailer. For this, I recommend the Replacement Spring Bars for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System part # BXW4007. These should be perfect for a trailer with a gross trailer weight of 7,000 lbs.
