Neither of which matters too much as my TV is a 2011 Ram 1500 CC whos max tow rateing is 8800#, But I would like to know which is correct so I don't over do it.
The yellow sticker is correct. All manufacturers are required by law to weigh any new trailer as it leaves the factory. So, this includes any factory modifications or additions as most of us choose options or additions when ordering new.
This does not mean that is what your trailer weighs now. Your dealer will have undoubtedly included a battery or batteries which will add 60-150lbs and propane which adds weight, too.
The sticker needs to be replaced by the dealer if they add additional modifications that increase the factory weight by a certain percentage or lbs. I've not actually seen this "replacement" sticker but I read about it once.
Sorry for the length, but you asked
To summarize, the short answer is the sticker.
