Vehicle Weight Education needed

This year's tag registration in Georgia has "Need Vehicle Weight" to register my tag & Sunseeker.

I have not checked any of my manual /information (Yet) -

I do have the brochure on my year of Sunseeker (2014 2690s):

GVWR - 14500
UVW - 11260
GCWR - 22000
NCC - 3240

What is the breakdown of the above weight specs?

GVWR -Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (Unit weight & carrying capacity)
UVW- Unit Vehicle Weight (Vehicle unloaded, vehicle weight)
GCWR -Gross Combination Weight Rating (Vehicle loaded & towing capacity??)
NCC - Net Carrying capacity (Amount of weigh that unit can carry)



Not sure what the state needs as of yet.

Appreciate the assistance.

The Cherokee County Woodstock DMV office used the GVWR of 11,030 pounds off of our units MSO when we registered our new "W".

The California DMV made me actually weigh my used truck I just bought.
It came from out of state- not sure if that mattered.
Actually a good thing to do- cost $15 but I know what it weighs now that I am going to tow behind the RV.
I will weigh the RV when I finish my upgrades here shortly for my info.

Here in Georgia it is a tax and emission testing issue based on the manufactures posted ratings. I believe the rules changes at 10,001 pounds as it becomes "medium" duty rating.

Yep Manufacturers Statement of Origin.
Comes from the factory, and you give it to the state when you register the vehicle and you get a Title in return.

This is normal in NY and has been for as long as i can remember, some states are getting more though about it, as the factory numbers cab be very wrong, My 5th wheel is registered for 11,000 lbs when in fact the gvw is 15,500 lbs, It was caught by the fellow who did my yearly inspection this year, he let it go with the understanding to get it fixed (which i will) over the winter. But the number they always want is gvw as this is the "heaviest" it can be.

I went in with the brochure, and the clerk was willing to put in whatever number I saw fit & told them.

They did not want to see the mfgr info, or need anthing more official, etc..

I went with GVWR - 14,500, and currently with how the state has it setup, there were no addititonal taxes at that weight range.

Thanks,

Markiemark
