To determine allowable trailer weight, subtract actual truck weight, passenger and cargo weight from the Gross Combination Weight Rating.
(1)Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.
(2)These trailer tow ratings are designed to provide acceptable performance for normal conditions of temperature, grade and altitude. Maximum Trailer Weight Ratings must be decreased by the weight of: optional equipment, trailer hitch, cargo in the truck, and passengers other than the driver. Maximum engine cooling option may be required to achieve maximum trailer weight rating and GCWR.
(3)Gross Combination Weight Rating.
(4)DaimlerChrysler requires that trailers with trailer weight ratings of 10,000 pounds or greater be equipped with a fifth-wheel hitch.
(5)The Camper Group is recommended to achieve this rating. California GCWR rating with manual transmission is identical to automatic transmission GCWR rating.
