Remember the engine is important in pulling but the transmission is just as important in going uphill and down hill.
Close, but not quite accurate. GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is the max weight allowed for the motorhome without the towed vehicle. This includes the MH, fuel, water, propane, personal items/equipment stored in the motorhome, driver and passengers. GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) is the above weights plus the weight of the car being towed including the tow bar or dolly used to tow the car and everything that is stored in the car.
You must meet ALL THE LIMITS --The hitch rating AND the GVWR AND the GCWR.
