2013 reg cab V8, GVWR is 6,400. Puts you at a 3,400 lbs.
How many 1,500 lb mowers are you trailering?
From my understanding it is simply the rated combined weight of truck and trailer added together. So a truck with a rating of 7200 and a single axle trailer with a rating of 3000 = 10,200 = needs DOT numbers.
