Agree the tongue weight limit on the Subaru is a challenge and I am usually between 20-40lbs over on that no matter how carefull I stow the trailer.

Carol do you have dual batteries or dual propane tanks?

I only have one battery (group 27) and one propane tank up front. Its a side bath and I dont tow with more than a gallon of water in the head. I could get it to 200lbs or under without much trouble but just find that if its to light on the tongue it doesnt feel as solid of a tow - I have only every had it do what I would call a wag (suspect most would actually call it a little wobble rather than a wag) on me and I admit I was going *way* to fast on the freeway and hit a large bump - a simple tap of the brakes sorted it out fast but it was enough to make me realize that things could go wrong fast if I did not watch my tongue weight and my speed! :-)
