The reason I mentioned it was that your TV/TT combination is similar to mine in over all length, both have the Reese HP Dual Cam...., only my TT loaded is around 600lbs heavier than yours.
A while back I played with different tongue weights in the 12% to 15% with my TV/TT combination (shifting cargo around, etc.), and found that my TV handled the TT better with a little more of the weight over my rear axle that resulted from a loaded tongue weight closer to 15%. As a matter of fact, my tongue weight now comes in at 15% of my TT.
To avoid going back and forth to the CAT scale, I used my Sherline LM-2000 scale to check my tongue weights. http://www.sherline.com/lm.htm
