Does GVCWR have the same meaning as GCWR?
Thank you.

Can't say I have ever heard of GCVWR... it is usually either GCWR or GVWR.

GCWR = Gross Combined Weight Rating (the tow vehicle plus the towed vehicle)
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (the vehicle doing the towing)

Could it have just been a typo?

If you google it - you will find both used.
GCWR = GCVWR. Some use the V, others do not.

the same

COMBINED is the added word, meaning the Coach's weight AND the towed weight

GVWR is your coach's weight rating
GVCWR is the Combined rating

I have never seen the added extra V letter used on an official document. Itís obvious to me what is being stated or what is meant, but I would not consider it as correct.

This is the way itís normally used:

You wouldn't normally see the "V" in the combined rating as it covers multiple vehicles.

In this case itís unnecessary or redundant use of words, but it doesnít mislead or imply a different meaning (at least one Iím aware of).

There are some incorrect terms floating around the Internet that I have to admit get to me. Two that come to mind are torque in lb/ft instead of lb-ft, and also Amps per hour. The problem is so bad we are starting to occassionally see them on manufacturersí Web sites.

Technically itís a serious problem because units donít work in equations as they must, hence confusing and misleading.
