tongue weight seems high for 13' Burro

So if you won’t be carrying propane, how will you run the 3-way fridge? Will you always have electric hookups?

If you want a propane option with minimal tongue weight, there are smaller 11# tanks, available in steel or composite. Pricey, you have to watch the level loosely, and you can’t use the 24-hour convenience store propane exchange in a pinch, but handy. They’re a lot more earth-friendly than disposable cylinders.

You could also relocate the battery to a vented box in one of the rear compartments.

If the current 154# is correct you’ve got about 20# to play with. A tongue weight of 135# is about 12% of 1100#. That 1100# is gross weight, not axle weight, right?
