I concur with "Lee's" observations/comments..., and the Class IV receiver (minimum) is the way to go.
The 20" tires you have aren't designed for towing and you should look into an LT rated tire with additional tread and sidewall ply's. My brother in-law had a similar "P" rated 20" tire on his TV and found that his TV would "wonder" a little because of the minimal sidewall ply. The tire up-grade will make a notable difference in it's handling while towing.
You didn't mention the size rating of your WDH ....., but an 800lb rated WDH would be "ok" for an extremely lite
loaded 26BH, but a 1,000lb rated WDH would be a better choice to cover a broader loaded TT tongue weight potential of the 26BH.
The 26BH has a generous CCC value, so you are smart to check the actual loaded TT weight at a CAT scale.
When you go to the CAT scale, plan to make three independent trips across the CAT scale (advise the clerk ahead of time):
Weigh loaded TV only.
Weigh loaded TV and TT.
Weigh loaded TV and TT but with WD spring bars not
engaged (leave them hanging).
With these three independent weight certificates you will be able to confirm your loaded tongue weight, axle weights, and confirm that the WDH is adjusted correctly.
It's comforting to see folks take notice of their loaded TV/TT weights, having everything set-up correctly will make for an enjoyable and safe towing experience.
