What are these things for?

What are these things for? They are mounted to the trailer tongue. One on each side of the A-frame. Thank you.
Note: First time trying to post a photo. Let me know if you don't see a photo.

Don't see a photo.

Do they look like hooks welded to the frame?

Yes. A hinged U-shaped thing which has a thing pointing toward the ground at the bottom of the U.

Yep, the attachment points for the spring bar chains. They help with leveling and driveability of the tow vehicle and trailer..

>"Would this be something I need to use when pulling my trailer?"

Depends on the weight of the trailer... and the towing capacity of the vehicle.
What does your trailer weigh... and what vehicle are you towing with.

I've never pulled a travel trailer so definitely don't know all the ins and outs. I think i saw on another one of your posts, that your trailer was 27 foot in length. If so, my opinion is that it would be wise to have the equalizer hitch and the anti sway bar set up properly on the rig.

Most likely. Unless you have a larger tow vehicle such as a 1-ton truck and a light weight trailer. They make a big difference in how your vehicle and trailer handle going down the road.
