I will never understand why they do that. I remember last time we went camping (with a rental) i was talking to another TT owner and he was asking if I had bad sway. I told him no, and so on and so on... then later in our discussions he showed me a little shelf he built on the back of the trailer. maybe about another foot and a half of storage. I asked him what he put there and he said it was a generator and fuel and kids bikes. "And there my friend is your sway problem" I told him. An extra 300 lbs or so not just at the back of the trailer, but a foot and a half past the original length. I told him to build something like that over the front A frame or get a pick up truck and watch how much it changes.
I guess its just scary to realize how many people dont understand how important weight and its location is. I guess they kinda have the thought if the trailer connects to my truck its done, no worry about brake bias, level, forward lean, back lean, weight location, tire pressure.... the list goes on. Lots of just hook and go I guess.
