I am aware that one would like to have the weight on each side of an MH to the same, this is not likely to happen. I was wondering if anyone had views on how much of a difference between sides was tolerable. I would presume that one would want the front to be a close as possible, and that there would be more leeway on the back wheels. I am running 1340/1460 kgs on the front and 2650/2480 kgs on the back, or 109% on the front and 107% on the back

Spartan says 5% is acceptable on their chassis so on an axle that weighs 10,000 lb, the difference between wheel weights can be as much as 500 lbs. I don't know the specs on other manufacturer's chassis.
