I never use the adjusting bar anymore. I find that if I level it on "Legos" side to side, lower the front a bit below level, lower the rear stabilizers to the ground, and raise the front to level it puts just the right amount of tension on the stabilizers.

Way too much weight in the back of the Scamp. I can jump up and down in the back of mine and no tippy.. Groceries (canned foods) go in the front of my Scamp. Bedding (sleeping bags) in the rear compartment. The trouble with so much weight in the back is you're much close to sway when towing.

I have used the adjusting bar, but very little. What you're doing is almost same as me, except I use a BAL wheel leveler instead of legos.
