What is the weight of my trailer?
The weight of your trailer can be figured out by looking at the VIN sticker located on the frame of your trailer. Locate the GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) on the sticker. The GVWR is the empty weight of the trailer plus the capacity that the trailer is rated for (also known as the MAX GVCC ). For example, if you have a VATB-5225 with a VIN sticker that states the GVWR is 6175lbs. The MAX GVCC is 5225lbs. Therefore, doing simple math, you can figure out what the empty weight of the trailer is by taking the GVWR – MAX GVCC = empty weight of the trailer. In the example of the VATB-5225, the GVWR is 6175lbs. Minus the MAX GVCC of 5225lbs equals 950lbs empty weight.
