There's theory and there's reality...
In theory, your plan will work. In reality....

I would be concerned about the frame strength, and flex. Really, take a look at some of the fab some folks have done with box frames and used camper boxes. I've seen some really cool ones, done on the cheap, stable as a stone. Your pix notwithstanding, though the truck camper on the dual axle actually has more tongue weight than you might think due to the overhang.

Longer length betwixt tongue and axle buys some stability. Rearward axle does too. But loading does make a difference, my generator is a sensible difference depending on where I put it. Now, ALWAYS as far forward as I can, and add air to the air bags, and stabilize the ridiculous drop ball mount, I am good to 75.

I sure found out when my RS shocks had a slight leak and had an air bubble, let me tell ya!!!!!!
