GVWR: amount the trailer can weigh (based on axle rating)
UVW: Unloaded vehicle weight - this is how much the trailer weighs before loading and usually does not include the weight of options like awnings, a/c, etc. unless those are standard on that model
CCC: That is the weight of the cargo you can add to the trailer and this includes fresh water, gray water and black water and often the propane.

You have to be careful because there is no universal agreement on what the UVW includes and too many people don't think about contents of the tanks counting against their allowed cargo capacity.
