WDH question

I am switching TT's and wondering about the WDH. I have a keystone Hideout 178LHS which is less than 5000lb even if fully loaded. I have a 6000/600 rated equal-i-zer WDH. I'm switching to a coachmen 261BH which has a dry weight of 4673, and once I've loaded it, it will be about 5523 to max 5673 lb.

Do I need to upgrade my WDH? While the WDH is rated to 6000lb, they rate the bars to be 10% of that (or 600lb). There's pretty much no trailer out there that has 10% tongue weight.

Thanks

You'll be fine with what you have. Don't worry.
