I do not see the lifting bar. It will be a bar about a ft long that goes in through the larger hole in the bracket and has a small pin on one end that goes into the smaller hole. That bar is used to lift the bracket into the loaded position.

Before you go much further consider the tongue jack as it will have to be moved to clear the driver side bar.

That is a weight distributing system ONLY. It has no sway control function.

The trailer looks nice enough to warrant a new system with sway control.

Something like:

Weight Distribution - Reese

or even this, if you want to go "top of the line":

Trailer Sway Control Hitch Guaranteed to Eliminate Trailer Sway - ProPride 3P

But isn't there some special hitching system that is needed (or required) in Europe?

None of those systems will work with that side mounted tongue jack. Replace the tongue jack with the proper one that mounts in the hole in the center of the A frame.

I have to have this one to get MOT on this trailer in our country, the original is still in place. So the side mounted tongue jack will go as soon as the MOT is on the trailer.
