Re: Boat & trailer weights The boat Im looking at right now shows up on NADA as 2300lbs, but thats with a V6 and this boat is a V8. I figure 2500lbs plus trailer and gear. Probably go a bit over 3500, but under 4000.
Trailer Weight Estimates; Use this chart to approximate the weight of a typical boat trailer. These figures are based on a comparison of manufactured trailers and not on any specific Glen-L trailer model.

Bunk Trailers. Bunk trailers provide a classic, time-tested design and solid value. They offer superior hull support and security, making them an ideal choice for steep launching conditions and for boats that spend a lot of time stored on the trailer.
When the weight of the boat/trailer combo is added to the curb weight of the vehicle, the total must be less than the GCWR or you risk not being able to control the truck/trailer combo. Similarly, if you max out the towing capacity with a heavily loaded boat and trailer, you'll have no room in the equation for any passengers or gear in the truck.
A new trailer will have a VIN plate that has not only the trailer’s serial number but also lists the trailer’s weights and capacities. It should look like this: Here’s another chart giving you the typical weights for the common types of utility trailers: And this one is for typical travel trailer weights: If you have a homebuilt trailer ...
As a general rule for pulling pontoon boats, I recommend a vehicle that advertises a towing capacity at least 2,500 pounds (1,133kg) more than the actual package weight of the boat, gear, and trailer. So, in general, I’d say a truck that advertises it can tow 5,500 pounds is adequate for towing most pontoon boats.
If you cannot determine the weight capacity using the above suggestions the next step would be to measure bolt pattern on the hub, size of brakes, and bearing part numbers. With this information we could narrow it down to what size axle you have on your trailer. I am sending a link to a FAQ page that has information on trailer suspensions.
