Re: 5th wheel towing

You should check you truck manual for your numbers and substitute in the chart below I made up for my F-350 & 5th wheel.

GVWR - 9,900lbs
(Gross Vehicle Wt Rating - total wt allowed
to be carried in any form in/on the vehicle)
GAWR - (Gross Axle Wt Rating - total wt allowed on the axle)
Front - 4400lbs rear - 6830lbs
GCWR - 17,000lbs for 3.73 rear axle ratio
Trailer Max = 10,000lbs
Fifth wheel trailer maximum wts is calculated: GCWR - truck GVW
(Gross Combination Wt Rating - total wt of the vehicle incl
wt of towed vehicle, and the load in it)
