Calculating trailer weight

I'm looking at a 23' hybrid trailer. The sticker on the inside says Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW) is 4350 Pounds with a CCC of 1480. My question is does the sticker weight include the propane tanks, battery and spare tire or do you subtract this off the CCC of the trailer? My truck with my whole family in it weighed in at 4800lbs the other day at the dump so I'm thinking this trailer may be pushing it a little.

That is the weight from factory so no battery, propane or spare tire.

There is lots of people on the board who will say your pushing it but I tow a 5300lb dry weight trailer and have no issues.
