That is just the thing - the truck is fine with it with the leveling bars and air bags. Otherwise it flattens the truck. Flattened Jeff's 2500 Dodge Ram too. I only became concerned about it once we knew what the tongue weight was and paid attention to the max specs. Otherwise, everything is hunky dory.
Gross weight is high, around 7200 lbs but there is a lot of stuff on the trailer in that configuration - 2300 lb 260Z, 12 wheels/tires, 30 gals of gas in the fueling rig, that box is steel and has the air compressor, tool box, sleeping bunk, AC, two marine batteries, 1500 W inverter. The under deck steel storage lockers are 7ft x 2 ft x 1 ft and there are three of them, chock full of spares - drums, alternators, brake calipers, drive shaft, clutches, etc. two spare trailer tires on the rig, three fire extinguishers, spare car battery. Cooler and grill mounted on one side of the trailer. Stereo in the box, TV in the box, etc. It adds up.
Hell, I might just have my welding trailer man reinforce the hitch receiver and the trailer tongue and call it a day. Thus far the thing works great.
