Conventional trailer is pulled by the hitch receiver. You have to be within several limits not just one. That conventional trailer could be a flatbed with a lighter tongue weight percentage (ie 10% of loaded trailer weight vs the ideal tt tongue weight of 13-15% of loaded tt weight). You will max out on payload and hitch capacity with a tt long before you ever hit the 13000 lbs. A 13000 lb tt could potentially have a tongue weight of 1950 lbs. Your payload needs to be able to accommodate that weight plus the weight of all occupants, pets and gear in the truck. Just something to think about when truck shopping.
