Watch your Payload!

For the noobs out there, you need to watch not only your trailer weight, but your tow vehicle payload.  How much can an Escalade tow?  8,300 pounds.  That's a lot.  But it only has a 1,600 pound payload.

What does that mean?

I can PULL 8,300 pounds, but I can only put 1,600 pounds onto the Escalade.  And the trailer tongue is going to be putting 650-950 pounds already.  So 650 pounds is a lot, right?  Well....

I'm glad some of this stuff is getting moved to the Airstream.
