Re: Whats GAWR mean in trailers?????
GAWR= Gross Axle Weight Rating. Meaning, if you were to weigh the trailer the axles shouldn't have more than 6400 lbs each, or 13,800 total. They would never have that much anyway, as 14000 lbs trailer has roughly 2500 lbs pin weight. That would put 11500 on the axles and 2500 on the truck. I really can only guess what the trailer weighs, but I'd say between 4500-5000 lbs dry.
