The person who said to find out has a 5er so maybe it doesn't apply to me?
obviously, this "person" has things mixed up.
GCWR or Gross Combined Weight Rating, is give to the tow vehicle because it's the most that the combined vehicle/trailer can weight together.
it's to say how much max, the vehicle is capable of towing, including its own weight and the trailer's weight. this should be in the vehicle's owners manual.
if you posted info about your tow vehicle, we could help you figure it out.
year, make, model, if truck(cab size, bed size), engine size, trans., rear end ratio, 4x2 or 4x4, factory tow package or not.
GVWR or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, is a max number that each on their own separately can weigh. you'll find a GVWR number for vehicle and one for the trailer. the trailer's GVWR is the "dry" weight number plus the CCC.
