Tongue weight is important when towing. There needs to be enough tongue weight to make the trailer and tow rig behave as one unit when going down the highway, but not so much as to pick the front tires of the tow rig up off the ground and cause handling. With a soft and supple coil sprung rear suspension, we expected not to be able to get enough tongue weight before steering was affected, and while a weight distributing hitch would make this tow much better, so far we are doing fine.
