That weight chart should have never left the factory.
Typed lines 2 rows high. Yes your GVWR is 12,300.

that tag is confusing. It shows the uvw, or "unloaded vehicle weight as 42 pounds. And the weight of the LP as 2121 lbs. ,
best call the manufacturer for correct details.

if the label is misprinted as Skip says, then you should not put more then 2121 lbs of "stuff" in the rig.

And, don't confuse Gross Vehicle Weight Rating/GVWR (probably 12,300) with Gross Combined Weight Rating/GCWR (which is the combined maximum total rolling mass allowed for the loaded RV -AND- any trailer/tow).

The odd thing is that the sticker on the right seems to read a different number for the GVWR of the Ford Cab/Chassis(?)

Corrected the plate with paint.
Also important are the GAWR's ( Gross Axle Weight Ratings) wich both together are a bit more then the GVWR ( Gross Vehicle Weight Rating), wich is to allow some loadshifting without going over the GAWR, mostly usefull for back-axle wich is often a little overloaded.
