Safe bet is 20% of gvrw. It will be less but lets you plan ahead for heavy packing

It is NOT a figure that would be on weight placard


Tongue weight can vary depending on what is loaded into trailer and WHERE it is located


Your 2015 has:
Dry weight of 4745#
Dry tongue of 530#
That is a 11% dry tongue


GVWR is 6250#
12% tongue ----750#


Tongue weight ratios can be 10%-15%


Best method to figure tongue
Weigh truck/trailer combo
Weigh truck
Then you can figure exactly what your tongue weight is
