you'll make 2-3 trips to move your loads.
If this is stuff you can move around to balance the load you should be able to manage the tongue weight, even on a single axle. Some guys use a bathroom scale to the the weight to whatever it's supposed to be.
I forget what the tongue weight is for these cars. I don't think about it because I only haul for short distances.
Be sure to get a good jockey wheel. Makes a difference when you have to move a loaded trailer when parked, even just to align it to the car.
