the ideal tongue weight is 10-15% of your trailer gross weight, to be able to tow properly, most trailer manufactures have the tongue weight about the 10-12% knowing customers will be adding weight to the tongue. the best way to find out what you can add is get your tongue weight measured to see what more you are safely aloud to add.
The Trailer Tray, weighs 65lbs and depends on what you want to load on it, the Honda eu3000 gen weighs 165lbs so with all would be about 240lbs. i think most trailer tongues can accomidate the load.

Well, i am 58 years old and have lived in the north for all my life and rv'd, camped, tented, hunted, fished, etc with my dad since i could walk. i think this is a good idea for SOMEBODY who does rv, camp and would like to pack a generator, wood box, solar batteries, cooler and is tired of loading and unloading each and every time.
Cudos to you whom ever you are for making my RVing easier.

Possibly would, with the appropriate strapping to hold it.

IMO the only way "most" trailer tongues could accommodate an additional 240lbs added directly over the TT A-frame under loaded TV/TT conditions is that ideally an existing 240lbs of tongue weight would have to removed.

I agree that a CAT scale visit (3-pass) would be highly recommended with this product.
