Default 1998 E-150 Conversion Van for towing

This '98 Ford E-150 seems to be rated to handle a CGRW of 13,000 lbs. To do this the vehicle should have a tow-package and an auto tranny. My van has a 5.4 c.i. V-8. I'm sure it has a tranny cooler but beyond that I don't know exactly what a tow package consists of. The sticker on the left column says it's rated at GVWR of 7,000 lbs, as well as having axle "19" which I believe is a 3.55:1 axle. The following four codes on the sticker I don't understand: BRK - C; R - 8; TR - E; SPR- ZC/ULM. I have not purchased the trailer yet but would like to buy a 2013 Keystone Hideout 26RLS. The GRWR of the trailer is 7,850 lbs. I am concerned about overloading the van suspension and the class III hitch that I have even though I'll be using a load equalizing hitch and sway bar system. Any help regarding the four codes mentioned above will be appreciated as well as any opinions on my towing questions. Many thanks.
