I had everything on the truck that I will have when towing, save for the wife and dog, and I know what they weigh! (classified). I think we will be in good shape with some margin left. Getting itchy to get on the road and see how the TV drags the FW down the interstate, but our first trip isn't until May.

I'm "thinking" that a full tank of water behind the axles will offset some of the tongue weight.
What was the total weight of your truck? And what is your GVWR?

GVWR minus the weight of your truck will tell you your payload capacity. You will most likely hit your GVWR before hitting axle limits.

I don't think you need to worry about tongue weight with your setup. You may want to even increase it up to the 13-15% range to help with stability. (depending on where it is now of course)

Cheers

====
Total weight of the truck was 7340 GBWR is 10,000 Adding another 1500-2,000 should still be under.
