    How much will my trailer carry?
    The carrying capacity is calculated by taking the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) and subtracting the empty weight of the trailer.  The difference is the carrying capacity / payload of the trailer.
    * Example –  10,000 lbs. (GVWR) – minus 2,200lbs. (Empty Weight) = 7,800 lbs. Payload

    What is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)?
    The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is maximum total weight of the fully loaded trailer including payload.  This weight must never be exceeded.
