But on a serious note. How do you all "Know" that you have your trailer weight properly distributed? I'm having a heck of a time with our new one. The DW keeps trying to stuff everything under the bed (up front) and there isn't a lot of room for large heavy things in the back.
Tongue weight is the only way to be sure. I always heard it should be at least 10% of total trailer weight, but many now say 12-15%. Your nearest public scale can help with the distribution question. Perhaps a local moving van and storage company.

Almost forgot, the heaviest weight should be right over the axle(s). Weight can be properly distributed in terms of fore and aft, but if too much of it is at the ends, you ultimately get the same effect as shown in the video.
