You're talking about the Gross VEHICLE Weight Rating

I'm talking about the Gross COMBINED Weight Rating: the maximum allowable combined mass of a tow vehicle, passengers and cargo in the tow vehicle, plus the mass of the trailer and cargo in the trailer.

I'm a kayaker too!

The 16 + my van fit my needs just right but I don't think it's gonna work--those ratings are there for a reason. HHmmnnn...I really like my van but maybe I can find a capable SUV that's not too big.
