I guess it comes down to a lot of factors. I know that I've towed pretty close to the limit of the vehicle, and felt that I was, well, underpowered, and underbraked, even with trailer brakes.
Doing this from time to time is OK, but I personally would not want to, on an ongoing, continuous basis [i.e. full time rving] want to use a tow vehicle that was at the high end of it's load limit. This is very much a personal decision.
I'm not enough of an expert to say if a given vehicle tow rating is 'rational and reasonable', therefore I don't presume to gainsay the manufacturer's ratings.
