Tow limits should be based upon axle ratings not manufacturers suggestions of the sales department wants you to buy. I've got well over 200k on my TV with half of that towing and brakes have been on there for over 100k. Get your trailer setup correctly and then you can stop believing these fairy tales.
No need to accuse me of nonsense & fairly tales. Calm down, no need to get personal. We're obviously never going to agree about this, and we believe different things. So I'll end it now, back and forth like this isn't helping anyone.

Setting up your rig "correctly" is obviously important. However, exceeding the GVWR of your tow vehicle, your trailer, or combo of both is not only dangerous, but its illegal in most states & provinces.

Again nothing but a myth. No where does it say that in any law for a non profesional driver. Stop propagating fear. The axle rating is the one that matters and that rating should not be exceeded. The rest is a myth.
