You can see in the second picture how the truck sits when its unloaded. It is slightly higher in the front.
The tongue of the trailer is heavy. In the pic I have 2 full propane bottles, two 6 volt golf cart batteries, the storage trunk is loaded with gear and so is the bed.
The truck handled fine and stopped fine, it was bumps like railroad tracks that I had to take it easy over. It climbed a 9% grade between 35-40 mph as well.

my brother put airbags in his '12 kc and has it ride level when loaded with a water tank hauling it to and from his apartment.
I will be adding the OME medium duty springs soon. I only tow this heavy once a year, all the other trips are much lighter because we don't bring as much.
