Sorry for not being more clear: There is no connotation of a "maximum" 
or "allowable limit" in neither the English nor the German term.
"gross weight" or "Gesamtgewicht" is just the current total weight, 
without any statement about how much additional load might be possible.
An empty truck has a lower gross weight than a full one, although the 
gross weight rating stays the same.
