The label on the door states:
GVWR 9200 lbs
GAWR FRT 4860 lbs
GAWR RR 6084 lbs
I am not sure how much the truck weighs?
I should mention the truck is a 4x4, crew cab, short box.
He clearly stated it was 9200 pounds just like mine.
The trailer max he quoted was the Travel Trailer max with WD hitch.
The GCWR is correct also. Missing is the 15,200 pound 5th wheel max.
Like Dave and I said, a 2500HD will payload out well before he hits his GCWR or max trailer weight.
