I have always used the load leveler because it makes the tow ride better behind my truck but the hitch is pretty low behind the MH. I dont want to drag on every low spot,!!
For my reply, I am assuming that your load leveler is actually a Weight Distribution Hitch (WDH) set-up.
Unless your loaded trailer exceeds the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, you probably do not need a WDH. The Allegro will probably have a Class 3 receiver...5000lb load rating and 500lb tongue capacity.
But, some WDH's also provide sway control - a nice function.
I doubt the Allegro would really "feel" a car and carrier like your pick-up or Class C, so it is kinda'up to you. If there is any doubt, why not give it a trial run near home. Hard starts and stops, and freeway lane changes will show you if you want to use the WDH.
Best of luck
