Trailer And Tongue Weight

Never exceed the maximum tongue weight stamped on your trailer hitch.

Consider the following items when computing the weight on the rear axle of the vehicle:

  •  The tongue weight of the trailer
  •  The weight of any other type of cargo or equipment put in or on your vehicle
  •  The weight of the driver and all passengers

NOTE: Remember that everything put into or on the trailer adds to the load on your vehicle. Also, additional factory-installed options or dealer-installed options must be considered as part of the total load on your vehicle.

Refer to "Tire Safety Information/Tire and Loading Information Placard" in "Starting And Operating" for further information.
