I think you will want to be very careful in your loading or you will certainly end up in an overload situation. The scale is your friend here. My 195RB has a similar CCC - 735lbs as delivered. It is very easy use all that up - especially if you are filling the fresh water tank with any significant amount. I recently weighed all the stuff that always stays in the trailer and it came out to about 250lbs (includes 2nd battery and full hot water tank). At 8.3lbs per gallon the water adds the weight quickly so we normally run with about 6-8gal in the fresh water tank for use when on the road.
Once you add all your other stuff on top of the "fixed" items there's not much left. My GVWR is 3750 with a GAWR of 3500. I scaled the whole setup a couple of times and settled in with a loaded trailer weight of 3685 and a axle weight of 3260. Tongue weight is managed to 425-450lbs which is right around 12%. As I just added the 2nd battery I'll be scaling again before heading out for the upcoming season. I think it's really important with the lower CCC values that you keep close tabs on what and how you load the trailer.
