2014 Sliverado Crew Cab rated at 7000lbs max trailer weight
2016 26DBH Grey Wolf loaded 6400lbs
Both truck and trailer loaded weighted in at 13600 lbs.
Truck and trailer together max combine weight should be 12000 lbs so yea am a lil over but what ever 100,000 mile power train warranty it is what it is
I have never had a problem with the truck pulling the trailer I just don't smash it climbing the hills and I don't hammer it on the freeways I just baby it and it does just fine next year were upgrading the the truck to a Duramax diesel 2017 3/4 ton.

I weighed very near the maximum allowed, which I expected fully loaded.

We went on the scale at the TA in New Braunfels, TX on Valentines Day.
Truck weighed
Steer axle 3000
Drive axle 3380
camper only 4580lbs.
We don't carry much over 10 gallons of water and just a few groceries. There is usually a store close by where we are camping to get supplies if they are needed. We do carry clothing we will need.

Have never weighted individual truck or the trailer by itself. I do know the pin wt as I measured it with Sherline tongue gauge.

To be perfectly honest, I don't know and really don't care. I can pull it and stop it and everything sits level.

I would like to weigh my rig, but, believe it or not, there is no truck stop scale anywhere in central Louisiana. Next trip i'll see if there is a scale along the way.

Yep. I spend very little time on interstates. There might be a grain elevator around though. I'll ask around.
