I have 2017 F350 diesel. I weighed the truck this past weekend with the wife and two dogs, full fuel, hitch and fire wood.
Front 4960
Rear. 3800
Total. 8760

Going by the rear gawr of 7230 I should be able to have a max pin weight of 3430. But that would put me over my gvwr for the truck of 11500. So I can only have a max pin weight loaded of 2740. So I will be looking for a camper with an empty pin weight of about 2000 to give me enough wiggle room.

IF I were going to be over on any numbers, the GVWR to me is less important than the RAWR and the rear tire capacity.
A fiver with only 2000 pin weight is going to be either small/short or both. 2000 PW equates to about a 10000lb GVWR....

I agree using the tire and rear axle max load ratings is what I would watch for. Look on the rear tires and see what the tire max carrying capacity is, don't go over those ratings.

My tires are only rated at 7280# so only 50# more than the rear gawr.

The real problem is the tire capacity and running at or near that load--not good for tire life and avoiding blowouts...have never heard of anyone 'blowing out' a rear axle, but tires--it happens often. Makes sense to me, that the more over capacity on tires, the less likely to have a problem with one of them.
