You will want to choose the correct system based off of the loaded tongue weight of your trailer; this should typically be between 10% and 15% of the loaded weight of the trailer. I recommend using the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution w/ 4-Point Sway Control - No Shank - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # EQ37061ET which is designed for trailers with up to 600-lbs of tongue weight. I prefer the Equal-i-zer since it's going to provide 4 point sway control, as opposed to the Fastway # FA92-00-0800 and Blue Ox # BXW0556 that only provide 2 point sway control. This is going to do a better job of preventing sway before it starts, as opposed to slowing it down once it has already started. This system comes with spring bars, sway control brackets, hitch ball, lift handle, and all necessary hardware included.

With this system you will want to make sure that you don't exceed 600-lbs of tongue weight, which can be monitored with a tongue weight scale like the Sherline # 5780. Since the Equal-i-zer doesn't come with a shank, you'll also need a Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-4100. Lastly, if you don't have a thin walled socket in your tool set, you also may want to add the # EQ70-00-4800, which is a 1-7/8" thin walled socket to allow for easier installation of a hitch ball.

I've linked a review video of this system, but this is the perfect solution for weight distribution with sway control and your best bet for your new Lance 1995 trailer.
