The Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating (GCVWR) is the maximum weight of your loaded truck and the weight of its attached trailer.
Example: If you have a loaded truck weighing 6000 lbs and an attached 5th wheel weighing 10,000 lbs the combined weight is 16,000 lbs. If your trucks GCVWR is 14,000 lbs, you are over weight by 2,000 lbs.
By loaded truck we mean the empty weight of the truck + passengers + fuel + cargo + 5th wheel pin weight.
The GCVWR can be found in the specs. for the vehicle.
