My question is.... Could I get away with purchasing the 274 or is it a no brainier to go with the 26 and the extra 460lbs of CCC?
I think you answered your own question - and it has nothing to do with ccc
Seriously though - even the 1489 is pretty high number for ccc. Unless you are going someplace with no water available, you can generally travel with the tanks nearly empty. You'll see people out there who carry everything they own (and don't use half of it), but even after your battery, propane, other options not included in the "fake" brochure dry weight, you'll still have around 1,000 pounds to work with which should be fine.
I don't know the specs on your tow vehicle, but SUV's (and many 1/2 ton pickups) run out of payload capacity due to tongue weight, passengers, and gear in the tow vehicle long before you reach the max weight on the trailer.
Double check your payload numbers for the tv and then pick the one you like (or the one DW likes!).
