The whole DOT CDL thing is very confusing. You might try to see if you can sit down with a DOT person and ask lots of questions.
I'm surprised the GVWR is what it is on your trailer.
What part of the GVWR of my trailer surprises you? Did you think it would be rated 21,000 or did you think it would be less. Like 14,500. I saw another triple axle toy hauler fueling up today and I looked at his tag. It was rated 14,500. Just trying to get right with this thing. My wife just found this online.
Read just A. and part 5 for me please.
