another thing someone said eariler to lose the front two panniers, so I think this is the way I will go, two back panniers, tent and sleeping pad on the rack, when I get sorted I will post picture
Good luck getting it all sorted out in a way that works for you.

BTW: Have you considered tent on the rear rack and panniers on front? That can work out quite well and might be preferable especially if you are concerned about the amount of weight on the rear wheels.
