Cargo weight

OK, I am new to this stuff. My TT dry ship weight was 5396, cargo carrying capacity is 2261. My sticker outside the TT says cargo capacity 1028. Does this mean all my xtra weight (awning, appliances, propane tanks etc) now has reduced my cargo weight to 1028? Meaning I could possibly carry 1028 in other supplies ( chairs, luggage, water etc). Thanks

The yellow tells how much weight you can carry after all the options have been added as it rolled off the factory line. If the dealer added any other options, that will need to be deducted as well. Best bet is to hook it up and go weigh it yourself.

That is big difference.

Dry shipping weight is different from the empty shown in the brochure, usually by about 400-500 lbs., depending on options. But that is still a big difference. It is possible that the 2nd weight you are looking at includes full tanks, but that is speculation. The best way to tell your cargo carrying capacity is to actually weigh your trailer, the subtract that from your GVWR.

You haven't identified what your camper is...sure that 1023 isn't kg which would be 2270 lbs.
