We're leaving in the morning, do you think we should do another weigh on the way out or not? Difference would be wife, 2 big dogs, and a couple coolers in the truck (350 lbs est). Trailer is pretty much fully packed except a few small items.

Next question is: what's it look like with the truck loaded and ready to go camping? Right now you have pulled weight off the front axle, Thant's not usually recommended. You still have some "room" on the truck. No spec on the trailer mentioned so no idea if it's got any room or not ...
Loading things up may put weight back on the front axle or it may not. If it was me, I'd crank the WD a bit.
For us, by the time we add the dogs, people and other stuff to the truck, that's right around 1,000 pounds (they are big dogs
