TV weight enters into this as well. More TV weight there is less effect on to WB lever. Also, more TT weight, there is more for the TV to overcome.

From Dave's towing tips:
(This guideline was first used by the RV Consumers Group rv.org)

For the first 110" of wheelbase, this allows you 20' of trailer.

For each additional 4" of wheelbase, this gets you 1' more of trailer.

Wheelbase / Trailer length
110" = 20'
114" = 21'
118" = 22'
and so on
IMO that is a subjective value. The type and quality of hitch is a huge variable.
