Can someone check my math - buying a travel trailer

I have a 2005 prerunner access cab with Trd, v6, tow package. Towing capacity = 6500. Do my calcs below appear correct? All weights in lbs.

Gcvwr of truck = 11,100
Gvwr of truck = 5250 (from door jam sticker - max weight of fully loaded truck)
Gcvwr minus gvwr = 5850 (this difference is the max weight of any fully loaded trailer I can pull, correct?)
Trailer weight = 3934 (this is noted as the uvw on the trailer sticker)
So finally.....5850 - 3934 = 1916 (this difference is the weight of any gear I can throw in the trailer and not exceed the gcvwr of the truck, correct? Total allowable weight of cargo noted on trailer sticker is 2226.)

Sorry if this is tough to read. I am trying to type this on my iPad. Any help is appreciated.
