You must missed the most important number, the truck's driver door silver sticker payload capacity number.
It should be on the same silver sticker where you found the FAWR and RAWR numbers.
It is mentioned many times in this thread.
The only better way to get that number, is to weigh the empty truck on a scale and subtract that from the truck's GVWR.
Also, 13% of the TT's GVWR will mean a loaded ballpark tongue weight of 780lbs, which is over the Canyon's max hitch weight.

On many tow vehicles, you run out of payload before you run out of tow weight. A lot of people new to towing to not realize this.
