Check the truck specs and it will tell you how heavy a 5th wheel the truck is rated for as well as the payload capacity of the truck. Payload capacity covers all the stuff you are going to haul plus the pin weight of the trailer. Keep it simple, thats all you need to know.

Remember that it is only a 30 footer, and it weighs over 15,500# with only about 30 gal of fresh water, and a GVW of 16,400#. so I wouldn't call it exactly light, lol, I am over my GCWR by over 1500# and darn near at the duallys GVWR. I would guess being only 30Foot is why it doesn't weigh any more.
