Thanks all for the responses..
BigDaddy, i as not in the car when weighed. That makes MtnGuy accurate with the numbers.. so
The wife is 98lbs me.. 205. No kids no pets and when we traveled b4 the trailer, we had a cooler and 2 small suitcases. I may seem naive but we really do travel light.
The plans are to travel short distances to family around the country (mostly flatlands) then sell the trailer after 3 or 4 years. (we are old) And I do love the tow-rag.. it will be a keeper
Back to the numbers..
we will never come close to the gross combined weight- over 12000 lbs, tire capacity is fine.
the only numbers we are close to is the rear axle (tongue) and what you found - the 590.
My last two questions for you all is regarding the mechanics of the 200 lbs going back on the trailer, and if the location of the ball in relation to the wd (ie further or closer to the axle) may be determining which direction the wd is affecting the load.
Do those questions make sense? I may be selling the reese straight line WD and get one that keeps the ball closer to the TV if you guys think that would be wise.
one picture is from the (in)famous article about a Porsche towing the airstreem. the other is mine. You may see my concern here.
Again,, Glad to have the pro's helping out - even as i fall into the "marginal" category.
