Reading through these posts on towing capacities I havenít seen any mention about the additional weight inside the TV. I think there is an allowance of 150 lbs for the driver and anything more than that such as additional passengers and cargo has to be added to the trailer weight. So, if you strip the TM of 150lbs but have a 200lb passenger plus 50 lbs of goodies in the TV, youíre not 150lbs lighter, you are 100lbs heavier. Bummer but I believe that is the way it works.

My understanding is different manufacturers calculate it differently. Have not checked recently but at one time some included a certain allowance and others did not. In others words some would set the tow rating allowing for so much weight and cargo plus the towing capacity was on top of that. Others one had to subtract the weight in the tv off the towing capacity. If I remember correctly at one time Asian manufactures made the calculation different than domestic ones.
