My loaded F250's weight numbers

I am getting ready on a trip to WDW Ft Wilderness. I took my truck and camper to the scales and my total weight of the truck with a golf cart in the bed and camper was 12500 lbs. Truck and golfcart was 7700 lbs, camper by itself was 4800 lbs.
All of this seems within the rated capability of the truck, but my reason for posting is the door jamb sticker is missing from my truck and I cannot actually know what my trucks ratings are. I have looked up some of the fleet data and thats where I am getting my generic info.
Waiting for the experienced to chime in.

2000 F250 7.3 4x4
SWR, Supercab, shortbed
E rated tires, WD hitch with sway

You should be well within specs. Do you have the individual axle weights? Shoot at 5000lb I never run WD haha.

No, don't have the individual axle weights, just the total of the truck with gc in the bed.

I assume that's including tongue weight of the trailer in the truck weight? You should look into the biggest loads ever pulled thread. Your truck isn't even loaded much haha.

Honestly you should be good. Axles are good for 10k to 12k pounds but they de-rate them from the factory for tire purposes. Your truck is probably on the top end of the towing of what it is rated to pull. With that being said we all know these trucks can tow more than what they rate them for but use your own judgement.

If I read the #'s right in your link, I am just barely over half of my gcwr so I should be ok. I was surprised on the scales that the camper only weighed 4800 lbs. It's a 88 Skyline and I thought it would have been around 6 or 7 K. It's only 25 ft though so I guess that would be about right.

Correct, you are more than good. Your truck is rated to pull 10k pounds and the GCWR is higher than what you have even with the golf cart in the back. Don't worry about it. Enjoy your trip bud.
