That is most likely the "empty" weight. Do you know the GVW on the sticker? Add 800-1000# to that and you get a rough estimate what your new 5th will weigh after the battery, propane and you stuff is added. 23% of that is a rough estimate of the pin weight. If your truck can carry that much extra weight then you should be good to go.
The CAT Scale is your friend.

how much it can tow,( trailer weight) and how much weight your truck can take in the bed should be considered separately

Not sure what your trucks payload capacity is, that is the real tale. Should be on the sticker on the door. As another pointed out, subtract from that all passengers, fuel weight, and any add-ons to the truck (bedliner, running boards, toolboxes, etc., etc.,) the remainder is the weight of hitch AND the pin weight of the fiver you can carry.

My F-150 is just on the correct side of the equation. I gotta be careful not to load too much additional beyond what I have already into the 5th. No heavy stuff like generators, extra batteries, etc. for me!
