Good Idea

Being a newby to all this, I've been stumped a few times.

GVWR- Gross Vehicle Weight rating. Your tow vehicles total weight handling capacity, loaded with passengers and stuff.
Not to be confuse with the tow rating or tongue weight.

tt = travel trailer
fw = fifth wheel
pw = pop-up
psd = power stroke diesel (popular diesel engined Ford tow vehicle)
tv = tow vehicle
DP...Diesel pusher
CG...campground
MH...motorhome ( also can be a Moho)

GCWR = Gross Combined Weight Rating... the highest amount of weight your tow vehicle can handle including all of the weight of both vehicles, cargo, and passengers.
