Every trailer I've ever towed with stiff springs and the proper tongue weigh bucks the tow vehicle. If you make the tongue weight light I find they buck much less but wander worse. If you have soft springs they can sway badly.

My 27 ft flatbed bumper pull always bucks, empty to 8 tons on it unless I'm driving really fast as the springs and tires are so stiff. Every bump they hit kicks the truck.

Well finally it is fixed. Apparently the idiot building the trailer was either having a bad day, didnt care about his job or is really a true idiot. There ended up being two issues. As for the sudden jerking of the trailer it was a loose electrical wire for brakes on rear axle. As it turns out they never worked but when the bare wire would touch metal or something it would cause that brake to bump on and off. Man it stops better too now. Next was the issues with rough towing which includes a back and forth bumping sensation. Apparently the left suspension was bolted so tight it could not move and flex properly. So after these adjustments the trailer now pulls great both loaded and unloaded. Finally.....

No, it is not normal. I'd be talking to the dealer.
