GVWR question

For sake of this question:
A vehicle that has a "Curb Weight" of 5000 lbs
the same vehicle has a "Payload" of 2000 lbs.
Does this then compute to a GVWR of 7000 lbs.
thanks Glenn

Simple answer YES


GVWR minus UVW/Base Weight/Curb Weight = payload/cargo carrying capacity

Yes, all of the items you listed are considered payload. 🤔

YEP......ANYTHING you put In or ON truck is Payload
Except 150# driver and Full fuel tank

200# driver...subtract 50# from payload
All passengers/pets, back packs, stuff in door pockets, stuff under the seats, stuff in seat pockets, glove box, bags, bling on truck (aftermarket stuff), items placed in truck bed and trailer tongue weight

Course payload changes IF you have dealer added options

I believe if the factory option 'spray in bed liner' is on the truck the payload is accurate. But if you add an aftermarket spray in bed liner' then you subtract 50 to 70 pounds from the payload sticker. Same for running boards. I believe if they are installed at the factory the trucks payload sticker is accurate. If you add aftermarket running boards you subtract that weight from the payload.

The reason to have a higher payload on your truck is so you don't have to count every pound you add.

Also it is why highly optioned trucks will have a lower payload then a lightly optioned same model truck. Every pound is counted.

Real answer is to go to a cat scale. GVWR minus truck with driver equals available payload.
