What Is the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight

The maximum loaded trailer weight is the highest possible weight of a fully loaded trailer the vehicle can tow.

Calculating the Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight for Your Vehicle

  1. Start with the gross combined weight rating for your vehicle model and axle ratio.
  2. Subtract all of the following that apply to your vehicle:
    • Vehicle curb weight.
    • Hitch hardware weight, for example a draw bar, ball, locks or weight distributing hardware.
    • Driver weight.
    • Passenger weight.
    • Payload, cargo and luggage weight.
    • Aftermarket equipment weight.

This equals the maximum loaded trailer weight for this combination.

Note: The trailer tongue load is considered part of the payload for your vehicle. Reduce the total payload by the final trailer tongue weight.

Note: Consult an authorized dealer to determine the maximum trailer weight allowed for your vehicle if you are not sure.
