If this is calculated off the dry weight, then you also have to subtract the drivers weight in excess of 150#, WDH, wife/husband, kid(s), dog(s), firewood, pots/pans, clothing, extension cords, other cargo...
My 1999 4x4 Blazer LS has a max towing cap of 5500 pounds.
My trailers GVWR is 3980.
5500-3980 = 1520
- 890 for family and dog = 630
- 114 for Blue Ox SwayPro = 516
- 200 for firewood (# pulled from thin air) = 316
The numbers dwindle quickly once you factor everything in.
