Thanks 😊
That’s a guide though. The Payload, GVWR, front and rear GAWR, and hitch rating stickers are not.
You should not exceed any of those values.

Clearly the trailer manufacture fudge the numbers
Sadly, not uncommon.
As long as the weights transfered from the trailer don't cause the truck axle weights to be exceeded, i have a good idea where my setup stands.
Methinks you're on the right track, Have Fun! :)

I suggest that the configuration-specific GCWR published in that document (based on SAE J2807) is a 'hard number' which should be respected / not exceeded same as any of the vehicle placard limits. It's not on any light truck placard because, unlike the other placard data, there's no federal mandate requiring that.

I agree, but insofar as the receiver sticker, and unlike the other placard data, those are not values reflecting the truck's VIN-specific limiting constraints (note the vehicle VIN is not found on that receiver 'commodity component' sticker).

I agree with you and well explained I might add.
