Thanks again for all the help. From what I can tell, I'm right at the limit. Since I don't have plans to go on many long trips, and I live in Iowa (pretty flat, short camping season) I'm leaning toward going for it. I think the challenge is going to be as mentioned above by RightYouAreKen, getting the hitch weight down to 10%. If I can do that, from what I've read, that would be within, but at the low end of the "comfort zone" of 10-15%. I'm pretty sure I will know it is back there, but it isn't sounding like I'm going to be an accident waiting to happen.

Towing the 26BH with a Toyota Tacoma - Data Calculations

Here are some data calculations based upon a 12% and 13% tongue weight, which shows how much weight can be in the TV and TT to meet the critical numbers.
