We have a 4 window cab and chassis and the rated GVWR is 10,000# After our build, water, fuel, wood build out, 4 bikes, 3 solar panels, 2 kayaks, we weighed around 9500#. Our GVWR is with load D tires and we run load E tires. We didn't really exercise much caution to weight when we built and we feel pretty good driving down the road.
