X-chocks all the way. Also, noticed a difference how the trailer was loaded can change the amount of bounce.

I also removed some stuff I kept in the unit as spare or contingency junk....There will always be some bounce unless you make it a non-movable trailer.

On these light trailers you will generally have some so movement. But I totally agree with the X-Chocks I al so use a couple medium sized bottle jacks and put them between the wheels. A lot of the bounce you feel is actually from the radial tires. I also recommend some flagging tape that you can to to you X-Chocks that will connect o the jacks to remind you to take them out before you pull away. Not likely to hurt any thing but it sucks to leave them behind. I have found a few in camp grounds.
