Not to get too deep into the grass, but neither Formula nor the trailer manufacturer knows how much the weight of your Formula will be when you are using it. They can make some assumptions such as the fuel and water tanks will be filled to capacity and the load weight carried will be the maximum USCG rated for the boat., and finally that the boat will not be loaded beyond the USCG capacity. If that is the weight they assume will be on the trailer then I agree with your assumption.

I was unaware that trailers are sometimes built for a specific make/model of boat by mass market builders. Usually a trailer is built to a weight carrying range and perhaps fitted to a specific hull design for placement of bunks, rollers, fenders, bow stops, etc. Thanks for pointing that out.
