What you need to do is pull onto a scale ready to camp and the front and rear axle of the truck should be less than 7084 lbs. I would guess you over that but you won't know till you weight it and if it was me If I was over weight I would at least want to know by how much. In the states it cost 10 bucks at most major truck stops. You will run out payload long before you run out tow capacity towing a 5er.

Thanks Seachaser186 !
Unfortunately I'm about 3000 miles from the trailer right now.
When I get to it I only have to haul it on flat ground about half a
mile from storage into a CG. However it was hauled from San Antonio
to the Rio Grande Valley. Then to Phoenix & back to Rio Grande
Valley then back to Phoenix. No troubles and it handled well but
then I'm no expert. Like everyone else I'm learning as I go.
Appreciate your input.
The other TT I have up north has a GVWR of 4800lbs so much
lighter to pull. That I've pulled all over the US including the mountains
of Colorado & not a spec of trouble.

Hey Ian, that wasn't me that responded it was CWSWine; but still accurate info that you will run out of payload before towing capacity. What I was questioning was your previous post where you dissed the F150 EB in favor of the Tundra because it could tow 11300 instead of 7600. Of course the Tundra can't tow that but I see you corrected that to 10,100. Looks to me by your numbers you will have to pack light in both your TV and TT not to exceed your GCWR.
