How can I determine if my car can haul this – how do I find the payload or GVWR?

Determining the payload, GVWR, or empty weight of the trailer can be done using the following formulas:

  • Maximum Payload = GVWR - Trailer weight
  • GVWR = Maximum Payload + Trailer weight
  • Trailer weight = GVWR - Maximum Payload

To determine if your vehicle can haul a trailer, you will consult your vehicle Owner’s Manual and the information from above to determine if the trailer falls within your vehicle’s hauling capabilities.
