With my truck, when I'm at 6" between the bed and the camper, we are not level on the camper. It is too high in the front. Our truck is 100% stock. Our hitch is at the lower position too, so...

Yeah, that's a problem for me too. If you go back and look at my side pics, I'm a little too high in the front of the 5er. However, I have the hitch as low as it will go, and if I pushed the pin...

I think that your math is backwards. You LOST weight on the front and gained on the back axle.
