Don't go by Edmunds. Go by your owner's manual. There are often caveats and exceptions Edmunds does not take into consideration. For one thing, towed weight and payload are mutually exclusive to some extent. You cannot, as they seem to imply, tow the full rated trailer AND carry the full rated payload in the truck at the same time.

I suspect you may be okay, but your manual has the last word. Mine has a chart showing how the trailer ratings decrease as you add passengers and cargo. The full tow rating only applies if you have two people and no cargo. Tongue weight runs out before trailer weight.

Right. An important point.

Hey, that's nice. What vehicle? I wish they'd all do that.

Honda Pilot., Walt. Interesting thing is it's not linear. When you start putting people in the 3rd row (or cargo at the very back) allowable tongue weight drops precipitously. Makes sense. Weight in the middle of the vehicle is distributed across both axles. Weight at the back and tongue weight is all on the rear suspension.

Thanks for the info

I'm not worried. It's just me 180 lbs - Max gear 300 lbs in center of truck - 400 lbs in rear of truck. I should be well under any limits.
