Combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed: 1649 lbs
GAWR Front: 3450
GAWR Rear: 3850

We haven't taken delivery of the trailer yet, but I snapped a picture of one that weighs 100 lbs more than ours will.

Trailer:

Combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed: 1248
GAWR Front: 3000
GAWR Rear: 3000

That's a pretty decent payload rating. Jayco lists the GVWR of the 23MRB as 6500. You can use 13% of the trailer GVWR as a good estimate of tongue weight, 15% if you are more conservative. That would give you a range of 850-975lbs of tongue weight. That leaves close to half the payload for WDH weight, all passengers and cargo you will put in the truck. You'll want to make sure you have a good weight distributing hitch, ideally one with integrated sway control - here is a link to another "sticky" thread that can help out with that:

Thank you so much! This is our first RV and there's so much uncertainty--especially since we haven't taken delivery yet. We did purchase an Equal-I-zer WDH with 4-point sway control.

Really can't wait to finally get the thing home!
