i have had soooooo many different " interpretations " on how to figure out my towing capacity my head is starting to spin
i fell like i'm
and ready to go
I would appreciate any input from you guys on proper wait to figure this out ....
i want to know how to correctly understand and figure out how much i can tow with my current configuration .... in b.c. they throw a wrench in the gears to figure it out just to mess with your mind
the trailer is supposed to be subtracted from the trucks gvwr ???? i always thought the trailers gvwr was separate somewhat ???
anyway how much can i legally haul with this truck and trailer combo ...i wanna be able to haul trucks and cars and scrap with it .....
i have 1993 f450 super duty with 15000 gvwr
frt gawr = 5000 lbs
rear = gawr = 11000 lbs
i recently took the truck across a scale to weigh and got these figures
frt 1705 kg ( 3758 lbs)
rear 1710 kg ( 3769 lbs)
with trailer attached 1805 kg for rear
trailer was 1800 kg itself which i find strangley heavy isn't it ???.....
my trailer is trail king tk10u ( 16 ft tandem axle equipment / car hauler) with 12,300 gvw
for some dumb reason the truck has a current " licensed" gvw rating of only 5000kg
with that " rediculous " rating you can't even legally attach that trailer to it becuz it weighs 1800 kgs itself ( truck approx 7527 lbs ) they say you need to get a national safety code rating for anything over that 5000 kgs
