Help understanding weight

I have this sticker inside one of my cabinets.. i was wondering if anybody could help explain it to me, Im fairly new to travel trailers. My question is, im using a 2010 toyota tundra with a tow limit of 10,000 pounds, ive pulled it mainly in flat roud trips, but im planing on taking it this summer on 7% mountains, was wondering if it would be safe.
Gvwr...................7780lbs
minus uvw......... 5540lbs
minus fresh water..375lbs
minus lp gas.......60lbs
= ccc for this trailer

Gross vehicle weight rating. The most it can weight.

Unladen vehicle weight. How much it weighs empty.

Weight of water in tank
Weight of lp gas in tank

That leaves Cargo Carrying Capacity.

Subtract 5540 and 375 and 60 from 7780.

The balance is the amount of stuff you can pile in the trailer.

In any case it can not exceed 7780 lbs, so your truck can take it.

Actually from the factory. Dealer options can add to the weight.

So can factory options. Best to ask dealer or manufacturer if your weight sticker takes these options into account.

Regardless of what the sticker says or how you load it, you can not carry more than the tires can handle.

You have a capacity to carry 1800# or less. The capacity of your Tundra maybe a lot less than the 10,000# that you have stated. You need to weigh the truck with passengers and everything that you would normally carry in the bed while towing the trailer. Then look at the drivers door sticker to get the GVWR of the truck and the GAWR of the axles, then subtract the scale numbers from the sticker numbers. For a 7700# trailer your tounge weight will be between 1000 and 1150# Which I would guess will put you over your GVWR of your truck.
