No that is not correct.Its simpleOn your drivers door post there should be a stickerThe sticker will have tire size, air pressure and weight info.Under the weight info it will give a couple of sets of numbers;lettersThe two your interested in are:1/ gross vehicle weight(GVWR). meaning the actual manufactures weight of vehicle. 2/ Gross combination weight)GVCWR), meaning the vehicle weight loaded with persons, fuel, and any towed vehiclesNow for alittle math: Subract the GCVWR //your camper weight fromYour GVGW (also found on the title,and registration)ExampleTV weight without persons, fuel or traile (GVWR) 3850 lbs.TV Maxiunm allowed weight (with trailer) (GCVWR) 6750 lbs.*What your max weight capability is 2900 lbs.*** Includes people, belongings, fuel, your camper fully loaded, including propane water, and all the rest.above is an example only, not knowing your TV or what your looking to pull. Each vehicle depending on the manufactures options will have varying abilities.** The amount of weight that you can add to the TV and drive it safely without overloading.Another method is to contact the TV dealer and give them the vin number and they will be able to also tell you.Hope its helps with understanding the DOT rating mandated on most late model door post "You never fail until you stop trying!!"My advice is free but I do consider donations

dadmomh wrote:Among all these number is the extreme caution to allow yourself about 1000# in the weight you CAN tow/carry and what you find in the GVWR rating of a trailer. You need room to spare for those times you may carry more water, pack heavier than you normally would or anything else that comes up. There is also a percentage to use as a guide and I seem to remember it being 80% of the GVWR, but as usual memory fails me and this may not be totally accurate. In any event, if your truck has the capability to safely tow 7000#, don"t go out looking for a trailer that weighs 6700#....stop when you get to 6000#.
fla-gypsy wrote:Based on the 2001 towing guide and the information you supplied that Expedition is rated at 6600 lbs max (3.31, 2wd, 5.4L). The rest of the information needed (max tongue weight) will be stamped in or labeled on the receiver itself (if equipped). You are going to be limited to around 6k depending on tongue weight.2001 towing guide
