So just about 200 left in payload.
Give or take?

I'm no math expert but I'm figuring around 500lbs.

Looks like I'm closer on the truck than I thought but still under. A little over 200 May be closer to correct. GCVWR is 17100 and by my math would put me under max by 1950 lbs. if I'm not toady off base.

Tell ya what I'll split the difference with you and say 400 lbs. gas tanks and battery will eat up a good bit. So to be safe, 400lbs. My figures on trailer are high estimates. I'll know for sure after I get everything on the scales. Thanks for your help.

I would put my money into the best integrated sway control hitch you can afford, rather than a new receiver.

That's a very real possibility. I brought it home with a single friction sway control that wasn't tightened properly (should have checked myself) and did get some sway. Not too bad. I'm adding a second bar on the other side to see how it does but I'm really thinking a better set up. I also have airlift ultimate 5000 bags to install to stiffen the ride a bit.
