So then, if the trailer is a tad high does it matter that much?
I will do a search and read the other threads too.
I believe nose high equates to the rear axle carrying slightly more load than the front axle. Ideally, you want the axles balanced (level trailer), but most of us don't live in an ideal world. One user recently explored upgrading the tires so that they have plenty of capacity all around to carry the potentially unbalanced load. My thought on that discussion was to rotate the higher capacity tires front to rear once a season to keep them somewhat even over time. But IIRC, that was more than 2 inches out of level.
If your tires are right on the margin for the specified weight being carried (like many are), it might be more of a problem for one axle to be carrying more weight; those tires might be overloaded. That being said, my neighbor owns a Montana 5er, and his tires are over-spec'd for his 5er (good thing). But they are still TowMax tires (not a good thing).
