Weight Police Alert - Will I be ok?

I am joking, I was pulling my Imagine 2800BH with a half ton, and it did fine. But now I would like to take a golf cart or some other heavy toys along, 1st world problems. So now I have this, or will have in the next day or so:

Well, I'll bet your 1500 was overloaded over the payload capacity, even though it had enough oomph to pull that 7,450-pound TT. But your new 3500 dually will have no problems in towing that trailer without exceeding the GVWR of the tow vehicle..

That 2800 BH has a small space under the bunks to haul a bicycle or two, but probably not a golf cart. So are you planning to trade for a bigger toy hauler, or tow a second trailer behind the 2800 BH?

Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.

Going to put the golf cart in the back of the truck. I actually weighed everything with the small truck, we were right at payload, under RGAWR and under GVW as well as combined weight. But you always knew the trailer was there, I have a feeling I will now be able to say it's possible to forget that it is there!

Toy hauler may be in the future plans, but for right now we are happy with the travel trailer. Just want to be able to take more stuff with us.

Beautiful truck there. I really wanted a white one myself, but the DW doesn't care for white. Found a '12 in dark gray with the silver bottom. We will start pulling our Voltage 3970 later this July. Enjoy your truck!
