That would be truck payload carrying capacity. Your towing capacity should be around the 18,000 lbs. mark. I'm not familiar with the specs of your particular truck. Basically make sure the fifth wheel pin weight is no more that 9000 lbs. There are far more complex calculations involved in order to not overload the truck and stay within the legal limits of licensing. Which should be checked for each province, state and country you plan on driving in. The last thing you want is to have to leave your trailer somewhere unknown because some MOT or DOT has a thing for nailing Canadian drivers for over-weight combination.
