king pin weight which I am assuming would be about max, I come up with
5810 + 150 + 120 + 2500 which would = 8580lbs. so it looks like I can take my wife and maybe a sandwich. That's max on the king pin tho. I will never have this trailer fully loaded, never will have potable water on board. So does it look like I'm good here?
So far sounds good. But if you really want to crunch your numbers than there's a member on here who runs a site with some calculators (Learn To RV: What Can I Tow?
). Using these, you can get a better idea of whether or not you'll be in the limits. He tries to cover a lot of things people might forget.
