I figured the total trailer weight is 5,960 and 960 of that is tongue weight (max is 1,250). My truck with me, full water and the trailer weights 7,820 lbs (10,000 GVWR ) Looks like 2,180 for wife and what ever else.

It's nice having a 3/4 ton truck after maxing out a 1/2 ton for years
Its a 2wd, which help with the weight, and the payload on the door jam is 3,253 and my GVWR is 10,000
Nice, my payload is only 2259 if I remember correctly but it's enough for what I use the truck for. I haul a 660 imp gallon water tank on my flat deck as well as my JD compact utility tractor when needed and also have a 34 1/2 ft Flagstaff V-Lite travel trailer which weighs abt 8500.

My boss and I took a ride today as he wanted to drive the truck. We drove past a local junkyard with a scale. With him in the truck (He is about the same weight as me) the truck weighed in at 7330 lbs. That is with 3/4 tank of gas. Once I transfer my truck box from the 150 to the 250, I should be just shy of 7500 pounds with me and a full tank which leaves 2100 pounds for the passagers, cargo and the trailer. Not bad in my book and enough capacity when it comes time to move up in trailer size.

I'm going to run mine over the scales at our local elevator when I get it home, then again when I get all my tool boxes and hitch mounted, then again with the trailer loaded. The GVW is 13900 lbs so I know I won't be close on the truck but I will be at the max 5th wheel tow rating of 15600 lbs.
