Will I struggle towing this kind of weight with my truck. Do I need to be looking for a trailer that weighs less. I have noticed on this forum that some people bought to big of a trailer for what they are towing it with. Don't want to be part of that group.
What is the rear axle weight of your truck loaded up for camping without the trailer? Full fuel, firewood, tools, etc. The difference between the axle weight loaded and the GAWR(rear) will give you a number. Divide that number by .25 and you will get a GVWR of the trailer that will fit the specifications of your truck.
Forget about the towing capacity. That is a general weight with a bare bones truck with light driver and only options that increase capacity. 4X4, bucket seats, model upgrades all reduce the number.
