Find the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) in your owner's manual. That is the total allowable weight of the loaded truck w/passengers and fuel plus the loaded trailer. They will also probably give a max trailer weight but that assumes an unloaded truck with driver only. Any weight you add to the truck must be subtracted from the trailer rating to keep you below the GCWR..

If you don't have an owner's manual, you can get it online here:

That's GVWR, not the "combined" weight rating, I believe. Do what Bob said and get an online copy of the manual -- the information you need is in there.
