'90 Chevy crew cab GCWR ?

Can anyone tell me roughly what the GCWR is on a '90 chevy crew cab with a 454 with an automatic. It's a buddy's truck and I forgot to ask if it was a dually or not, but I'm pretty sure it is with a utility bed on it.
He's visiting in town and told me his truck has been overheating on long pulls, and his tranny has been overheating and he was eyeballing an old ac condenser I had laying around for a cooler, and I asked him how heavy he was pulling and with his equipment trailer loaded ( a small dozer trailer with a pintel hook hitch ), he sitting around 27k Needless to say that set off some alarm bells. I know his trailer has the braking capacity for the load on it, but I think he is going to trash that truck without some serious mods .

He was wanting to take the thing half way across the country to work on some rental property and wanted to try to get the truck ready but I'm thinking he's kind of in over his head on this one. He has a CDL so no issues there, I'm not sure about his state on local regs but I think at 27k he's already in purchasing trip permit territory and I don't know what else. I imagine the truck has to be registered for the weight or ? Home state is North Carolina

If it's a dually and it's an old body style truck it's a 10,000GVW. SRW old body should be 8,800GVW. New body 1ton 9,200GVW.
