I went on a blind date with a girl who told me that she " wanted to get weighed", so I took her to a CAT scale...

Turned out she had a speech impediment.

Haha That’s funny.

You are in the same position as many half ton owners. If you do in fact load very lightly and always have full hook ups plus a quality weight distribution, hitch you'll be very close on payload. I looked at so many different trailers over the years for half tons, generally speaking most all 25' and under will fit most half tons ratings, if you're using gross weight. There are some smaller trailers that have huge CCC and will be over weight if loaded to gross. I'm lucky I have a state scale down there street that's closed half the time but they leave their display on. As an old trucker I've used state scale a lot to get my weights. I'm with you on weight loaded in trailer, ours has to much junk IMHO but it's still only 583lbs and we also use full hookups at our local lakes. Once you get above 25' it's hit and miss, some will squeak under and some over. Being an ex trucker I'm comfortable with running near Max and have good hitch and drive accordingly. All the above said I rarely venture long distances, if I did I would trade my truck in. You will be very close, but I've seen people pull even more, doesn't make it right it safe, if you do pull this trailer, take it very slowly and use a good distribution hitch. The easiest way to solve the problem as most of us have learned, is to talk to your local truck dealer and see if they can move you into a bigger truck, then get the real trailer you love.

Happy Trails
