    Where did you get the 16,800 number?

    If you put 14k on a 14k trailer plus 2k TW you are over GVWR period.

    i think you try to confuse people. The trailer is the 16,800. And your truck should have a tow rating.

    If you put 14 k on a 14 k trailer that has 2k TW added into the GVW then you are NOT over assuming the trailer weighs 2000 lbs or less. Most trailers that size weigh about 3000. My Cam has 7k axles and 2k TW added to the GVW so it has 16000 gvw. It weighs 2900 so I can put 13100 on it.

    What trailer?

    You're confusing GVW with GVWR.

    When I say put 14k on the trailer i am considering EW to be included in that number.

    That doesn't maek any sense.

    What is the stated GVWR of the trailer?

    9200 is what i can have on my truck including the tongue weight, correct?.I got 16,800 from subtracting the 9200 gvwr from the 26,000 cdl limit. My understanding was that i can tow the difference up to 26k without a cdl. And if my trucks gvwr is more i can tow less, and if it is less i can tow more. Right or wrong?

    Well with that logic you could tow 22,000 with a hyundai Your talking about being CDL legal only but there are other laws too. A 9200 GVWR truck is rated to tow around 10000

    That is not a legal rating.
