Will this GVWR be same as towing capacity?
Do you think I would be fine pulling boat and backing up and up boat ramps?

dont forget to add everything up. a 8k boat is more with fuel, water, gear, engine, etc. also dont forget to add-in the trailer weight.

if you are going a very short distance, its probably ok to exceed a little. longer distance, i would be worried about liability should there be an accident.

finally, tht has a trailer sub forum.
