Gotta get it weighed and then do simple math.

GVWR-CAT Weight = Weight available for hitch. Assuming you were on the CAT scale with everything you would carry in the truck.
GCWR - CAT Weight = Total available weight you can tow. Same assumption as above.

With that said, my pin weight of my trailer is 2700lbs with no water in the hauler.
After I add 150 gallons of water, my pin weight goes up to 3700 lbs.
After I load my sand car in my hauler, which weighs 2800lbs, my pin weight goes down to 3400lbs (with full water in the hauler).

Of course, this is with me having all the normal camping **** in the trailer all the time.
I am just showing weight changes on big ticket items.
If people have to worry about normal "stuff" putting them over a weight rating, they don't have enough truck.
