Is there something about WDH and its affect on tongue weight that I'm not understanding?
Sorry, those were just hypothetical numbers. In any case, 10% is kind of a floor for safe trailer towing, and not every trailer will be completely stable at 10% on the tongue. WDH with sway control will help, but more weight forward also helps on any trailer that seems unstable.
How about this scale? 550 lbs.
