Looks like you need to move the load a little more back over the trailer axle to reduce tongue weight and to prevent premature ball wear.

Just be sure that tires are at max PSI.

would you not get better fuel economy if you just put the trailer in the truck?

From the angle of the truck bed looks just a bit low you might want to add some airbags. I understand there are some 5000 pound jobs that might help.

Does the trailer have china bombs on it? I don't think you can double tow behind the Sabre with your golf cart....

I think your wheelbase is too short. You may need to upgrade the truck to a freightliner.
