Is that the towing capacity? IMO a misleading number. It is basically for a bare bones truck with a jockey or 6 yo driving.
Take the GVWR, GAWR and GCWR to determine the numbers.
Load the truck as you would for travel camping. Full fuel, bikes, cooler, grill, wood, etc plus the DW and kids. Weigh it.
Subtract the loaded weight of the rear axle from the GAWR (rear) and reduce the number by 150 lbs for the 5 wheel hitch. The remaining number would be the maximum pin weight you should carry.
Take the maximum pin weight and divide by .20. That will give you an approximate GVWR of the 5er you should consider.
Do the same thing for GVWR and take the lessor of the two numbers for trailer GVWR.
