The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is a weight listed by the manufacturer that shows the maximum that the vehicle can safely weigh. This includes the vehicle’s unloaded weight, passengers’ & driver weight, cargo weight and 5th wheel hitch/pin weight. If we load to much weight into the truck, we would exceed the safe weight rating of the truck. The GVWR can be found on the driver side inner door panel or in the specifications of the truck on the manufacturers website.
