That points to another use of the trailer weights database. After looking at the average loaded weight in the database for a model of interest, compare it to the GVWR. That will tell you if that model has ample cargo carrying capacity or if you’ll have to be careful when packing.

Obviously you can see where you stand by visiting a scale after you’ve made your purchases, but the database is really intended to help folks in the planning phase.
