A-frame flexing, bending 2016 Apex 191rbs

Just returned from a 2500 mile trip out to Utah and back. 5000 mile total.
Noticed when lowering trailer onto hitch, a-frame flexing upwards >< 1".
Not exactly sure what tongue weight is but, try to pack light.
Now appears when disconnected that the tongue of trailer has taken a slight upwards set to it. No visible cracking.
A frame is 2x3" tubing welded through front trailer crossbar and welded to inside of 4" trailer frame. Most other trailers I looked at have same dimension tubing for tongue as frame.
Any and all experience and advice appreciated.

Well. This isn't good.

Can you post a picture showing the bend? Maybe a pic that shows from the front of the tongue down the side of the trailer?
