So you'll have a max of 11,440 on the tires and, perhaps 2,000 on the pin meaning your trailer shouldn't weigh more than about 13,500. Any more than that and you'll be over weight.

How old are the tires? There is a DOT date code on there too. As tires are used and age they lose carrying capacity. If you are running right at maximum capacity it can cause issues like blow outs and tread separation.

I'm hoping that "1500" is a typo.

I'm sure it has the power to pull, but you are most likely over your payload capacity.

I looked at the table in the owners manual today, and actually I am under what they say is max. The pin weight , the axle weight and the gross is under recommendations in the manual.

The current base model Silverado 1500 is rated at 7600 lbs. Earlier years less for certain.

With the V8, you are correct! not so much for the V6.

Hi Local150
My 2012 GMC HD, with Duramax Diesel has a trailer towing capacity of 14,700, yet my payload is 2990 lbs. My truck empty is 7400 lbs. By the time I fill the fuel, passengers, install my 5th wheel hitch, I am over my payload capacity, but under weight limits on everything else ! If you are confident in your numbers, then you are doing very well.

Could she use a little more engine,,,, beck yes but I can run 70 pretty easily all day long,,, she likes her gas but what doesn't. Heading to Char!it's N.C. Friday for a week or so then on to Florida
