Can anyone tell me how close to accurate the UVW is for these trailers? Specs list at 4,935lb. Figure I'll have 1k +/- of gear, so 5,935 GVRW. That is pushing the limit of my 7300LB rating for the truck. I am hoping that the factory roll off weight will be less than the listed 4,935....
Since you appear to be a RV newbie, you're making the #1 newbie mistake by believing fictional dry weights.
NO trailer weighs less than its website/brochure dry weight. In fact, they nearly always weigh more than that fictional number. This is because that number doesn't include battery weights nor factory options weights.
And second, the fictional dry tongue weight will be more also.
I have a TT with a similar fantasy dry tongue weight. When loaded for camping, it jumps up to over 800lbs.
You need to post what your F150's payload capacity is. It's listed on the driver's door yellow Tires and Loading sticker. It'll say "Occupants and cargo should not exceed xxxxlbs". My 2014 F150 SCREW 3.5 Ecoboost XLT has 1828lbs of payload capacity.
