If I remember correctly...

GVWR/GVAR is the vehicle weight rating (Gross).

As an example it the GVWR/GVAR of your vehicle is 6800 pounds.

That is the most weight the vehicle can carry without exceeding it's weight rating fully loaded.

So say the vehicle weighs 5500. 200 pounds for me and another 425 for my ex-wife, 40 lbs for her purse. 5500+200+425+40=6165. Trailer tongue weight cannot exceed the remaining 635 lbs.

If the tongue weight on the trailer is 500, you still have room for another 135 lbs, or to hide your new girlfriend and her luggage.

(I didn't add fuel weight because that really isn't that important in the example)
