There are the usual weight
and rating terms, which are not at all specific to our trailers, mostly not even specific to trailers, but relevant to towing:
GVW = Gross Vehicle Weight
of vehicle including contents)
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (maximum value of GVW allowed)
GTW = Gross Trailer Weight (GVW, specifically for a trailer, normally just use GVW)
GTWR = Gross Trailer Weight Rating (maximum value of GTW allowed)
GAW = Gross Axle
Weight (total weight carried by an axle
; one value for each axle)
GAWR = Gross Axle
Weight Rating (maximum value of GAW allowed)
GCW = Gross Combination Weight (total weight of tow vehicle, trailer, and contents of both)
GCWR = Gross Combination Weight Rating (maximum value of GCW allowed)

If anyone takes this on and wants hints on maintaining a list published in the forum, feel free to PM or e-mail me for suggestions on methods.
