It is on the inside of the glove box (Nope I'm not kidding), Look just under the lock on the glove box door and it will be right there. Why they put it there instead of on the door I will never know.

I'm also new:

We bought a 2002, Ram quad cab,short bed, 5.9L, V8, 4x4, book says it has a max trail weight of 8100 lbs.......says GVWR is 6650 lbs., GCWR is 12,500 lbs.

Trailer is a Jayco Flight, 27BH, unloaded vehicle weight is 4950, dry hitch 635, Gross vehicle weight rating 7,500. Does this sound o.k.?

Is there any website that could help me figure it out??



Hello TPguy1... Did you find any information regarding your setup.
I too also have a 26JTX which is the same as the 27BH from a weight and layout standpoint. What tow vehicle did you settle on to tow this trailer??..

Thanks,

Darren

Any recommendations for a single web site that has the towing/payload ratings for the 3 brands of late model 3/4 ton trucks? Failing that, how about a section of the factory sites that deals with prior model years?

Ford's no problem I found a site for them https://www.fleet.ford.com/showroom/rv_trailer_towing/default.aspGM & Dodge it's harder find specifics for the variety of models/trims/years/engines/diffs unless you're looking for the current model year.

I'm looking mostly at 07 thru 10 model years and the main factory sites usually only talk current year (funny how they're ALL "class leading"?)

I found this ref in my local paper. Beginning 2013 there will be a SAE std for those mfgs that wish to use it. See phelan@freep.com

Here's another website that has towing guides, online calculators, printable worksheets and safety report for RVers, farmers and ranchers who tow fifth wheel, gooseneck and conventional trailers. You can weigh your vehicle and trailer and print your weight safety report in 4 steps.
