2-5. TRAILER CAPACITY.
2-6. Units manufactured in the United States are
required to list the "Gross Vehicle Weight Rating"
(GVWR) and "Gross Axle Weight Rating" (GAWR)
found on the unit nameplate. The Gross Vehicle
Rating is the sum of the trailer weight and the trailer
capacity. This is the maximum structural capa-
bility of the trailer. The Gross Axle Weight Rating
is the maximum any axle can carry. The GVWR may
be attained under certain circumstances before the
GAWR or vice versa. Do not exceed either the GVWR
or GAWR. These weight limitations are independent
of road weight limitations imposed by law.
