To be sure, I went back to the original post. Above is what I read, and have re-read to be sure.

Thank you for the heads up!

It's always best to read the entire thread before replying, because in this case you replied to the original post and completely missed the update by the OP that they bought a truck to tow with.

there is a yellow sticker on the driver door jamb that will tell you payload... although I am sure you have plenty, be advised that tow capacity and payload are two different items...

many with smaller TV exceed the payload way before they hit the tow capacity...

here is a pic of my 2014 RAM 1500 sticker showing 1309# combined weight (payload)... which is passengers, gear and tongue weight combined... My trailer is shy of 500# Tongue weight which leaves me about 800# for gear and passengers in the truck. II bet you will luv the RAM and 8 speed tranny.

The tranny in the trucks are way above the 6-spd transaxle in the minivans. You'll love the truck.
