So it's less than what the VIN decoder says.
From the payload, you deduct your weight as the driver, the passengers, pets, hitch itself, and thing you add onto the truck bed (topper, bed cover) and into the truck bed (firewood, coolers, bikes, etc.). What's left over is what you have available for tongue or pin weight which usually runs 10-15% for TTs and 20-25% for FWs.
As you can see, the "towing number" doesn't really matter because it's very unlikely you'll hit it before exceeding payload.
