So you have about 1000 lbs for gear and passengers in the truck.

If you have extra capacity in the trailer, ( GVWR minus curb weight ) put gear there first to save load on the tundra

The 515 lbs. is the empty TW, add the propane and battery and +++, your actual will be quick over 750 lbs.
Sorry the GVWR of the truck is a bit low compared with other truck manufactures. But you will be fine if you add things up.

GVWR is a bit low but if his curb weight is actually 4500lbs his payload is pretty much the same as most 1/2 tons. My 1/2 was just about 6000lbs.

That can also depend on how weight is loaded in the trailer. If water tanks are behind axel for example, but scales will be the best way of timing all the numbers together. When you do go, drive on the scale truck first, stop and see weight, then trailer separately
