Agreed. They like a level tongue, too.I've had a number of M416s and they were always haulers of whatever. I'm not going to get into specifics on how to load yours but I'll tell you this, I've yet to meet one that like a light tongue. If you haul non consumables 10% of total weight of trailer/cargo on the tongue is a good place to start. If you do haul consumables and want to burn them without having to repackage the rest of the load, ending up with a heavy tongue is way more better than ending up with a too light tongue. At least on the road at highway speed. How you get there is up to you, but that would be my general recommendation.
