The system is made for UP to 1200lbs or 1000lbs... doesn't mean you have to be on that number to use it.
Once well installed and well leveled, just the appropriate weight will get distributed.
If it's not well installed, then yes, you could be putting too much pressure on the Aframe.
X2. Currently using a 1400/14000 Equal-I-Zer hitch for our GVW 4950lbs camper and we have no issues with it whatsoever. Can't speak for other brands, but as far as Equal-I-Zer goes, this works perfectly fine. The only reason I have such heavy ratings is because the dealer ordered and installed it. If I had known, I would've gone with 1000/10000 rated hitch just because it would've been good enough.
In your case, I'd say an Equal-I-Zer 1000/10000 would be fine too.
