2144 is your payload. The tongue weight of your airstream plus the weight of your weight distribution hitch counts against your payload number as well. Depending on which AS you have that could easily exceed 1000 pounds of tongue weight.

yep...my tongue weight is 1100lbs on my 28'FC; the WDH is 95lbs. I carry 350lbs in my bed (Honda 2200, Webber Q, Firepit, propane bottle, camp gear, toolbox), and wife and I in cab are at 380lbs. 1925lbs. Add kayaks (when we carried them) were 70lbs additional. So 1995lbs fully loaded with kayaks. Leaves me about 150lbs payload...maybe I should get a big dog!

As an ex (UK) General Motors research engineer specialising in truck suspension, I am wary of attempting to increase the payload by any but a small amount. This is particularly so with the dynamic downloads imposed by a heavy travel trailer.

The main issue is not so much in normal driving but the vehicle's behavior in emergency swerves etc - and particularly when towing at speeds over about 60 mph.

It is far safer to buy a tow vehicle that when fully laden weighs much the same as the laden travel trailer. Ideally more.
