It is what it is. It is a correct number, the manufacturers are assuming the average driver is going to figure out that anything he adds to the truck when it comes from the factory will have to be subtracted from the total cargo number on the Tire and Loading Info sticker.
Both trailers are 12k, the normal 20% of pin weight, IMHO, will be too much for most 3/4 ton trucks...not to mention cargo, weight of the hitch, passengers, etc.
