Also, if you don't crank in all of the bars' capacity to level the TV (HW + rear gear in TV as Doug says above) - then you're not using all of the bars' capacity anyway. You just have a bit stiffer reaction at bumps, which can give a stiff ride.
It's much better to be over by a margin (i.e.: bigger than you think you need), than so close you may have it over wt. on a particular trip .... like when "Lucy" puts the rocks in your trailer, or the kids have extra gear, etc.
Our Hensley Cub max'es out at 6,000#/600# - so we're at the max., & they do not recco going to any smaller bar - even though our Avion is probably 1/2 - 2/3's of that HW - even counting gear in the TV aft of the rear axle.
