I can see how tank in the rear could add sway.
Tank is in front of the axles. Small trailer, 23 foot and weighs about 4k and some.

Nearly all the time, since we almost always dry camp.
The extra weight affects mpg way less than the frontal air resistance.

If I'm boondocking, I'll fill it up at home prior to trip. I never drain it during the season so I'll travel with whatever is left. I do try to keep it at least 1/2 full all the time. I was showering last year and someone ran over a water spicket in the campground and they shut all the water off. I was mid suds and had no water to finish the shower. I have a 14,000 pound 5th wheel so 500 pounds doesn't make much difference. It's about the same as a full tank of gas vs an empty one.

Empty now, but I have had it full and it actually came in handy. Not camping related (well guess it could be). We lost power for a few days at home and were able to go out to the camper and take hot showers because it was.

When dry camping, mine is always full upon leaving the house. That's 60 gallons on this 5er. My TH had a 100 gallon tank. No problems doing that with mine.
