hahaha.... a bit finicky? I did the math for you. I also explained that by moving equipment around it affected the tongue weight significantly.

I towed that setup with 3 different vehicles. My 77 F150 extended cab 8 ft bed pickup, my father in law's full size 80 Bronco and his 24ft motorhome. The tow vehicle is not EVER the issue with sway UNLESS it is too short. It is the trailer setup.

Didn't have a WDH back then. As said earlier it would probably have helped. This would compensate for the extra tongue weight you suggest.

I like the low slung dual axle trailers shown.
