I have 198RD TW dry from the factory is 510 lbs actual I ended up with 740 lbs and GVWR is 5900 lbs and I am under that. What TV do you have? It seems you're maxed out you better start looking for a bigger TV or get a smaller TT. I was in a similar situation like you. When I pulled the 198RD home it wasn't comfortable at all. So went the next day for a TV what could handle the 198RD with ease.

It is a BMW X5 F15 and a pretty good towing car with the diesel engine.
The hitch does not come OEM in the US from BMW and that makes it a little confusing, at least for me.
The Hitch is rated far over the restriction from the TV and the limit comes from the TV as per Hitch manufacturer.

It looks like BMW does not want their Big Boys to be used for towing and giving you just a hard time

That's good. That leaves you almost 1500lbs of payload.

Tongue weight
Passengers
Gear in tow vehicle

The scale will ultimately tell you what the real tongue weight is of the TT.
