There is rear storage under the bottom rear bunk even with the outdoor kitchen. Enough for a decent size tote to fit.

We tow within a few hundred miles of home, so towing close to the papered limit isn't a big issue for me. I suspect the actual tongue on the 27BHS is actually closer to 950 when loaded, but since it has rear storage under the bunks, I could transfer it behind the axles to lighten the tongue.
I want to get a tongue scale. But I can't see adding 300 lbs to the tongue loaded up. I guess I will find out

Congrats. Picked up the 27BHS a couple of months ago. Love it.

Couple things about it:

Our bathroom sink had a loose fitting and it leaked a little when I pressurized the lines.

The outside fridge control is in a bad spot. It's on the back of the fridge next to the compressor. You have to access the control by opening the panel to the hot water bypass. That panel is on the rear of the storage bay under the lower bunk.

Check the seal around the door. The top corners had small holes in the sealant that I had to caulk up.

If you have the bumper grill, the mount was in a bad spot and I had to move it.

Have already spent hundreds on Amazon outfitting the trailer, and I think I'm almost there on "necessities."

It only takes up a portion of the bunk SF. No access to the storage from outside, but picking up the mattress reveals more storage behind the kitchen... even if the kitchen "drawer" is pushed in.

Is that a 1/2 ton? How's the tow?
