    Hey John,
    I'm working on a draft document that was suggested on the forum regarding the weight/size calculations for the purchase of a tow vehicle and/or trailer. When I have that drafted, I will forward to you for review by the site team. You guys can do whatever with it. In the meantime, I have a question:

    It has always been my understanding that the GVWR of a trailer includes (Dry shipping weight) + (Payload/cargo capacity weight) + (Hitch/Pin weight) = GVWR. Is that a correct understanding?

    I'm asking because I keep seeing posts where people are NOT including the hitch/pin weight in the trailer GVWR. Even some of the manufacturing data is calculated without using the pin weight. This makes it appear that the trailer is actually lighter than its full weight.

    Thoughts? Thanks, Brad
