RV weight

It has always been my thinking that a RV shouldn't exceed 80% of the tow vehicles rated capacity. My thinking comes from the idea that even though people every day meet and even exceed their TV rating when you're in an emergency situation you loose some control operating on the fringe that could save you if the balance was more favorable and less weight is always easier to handle than more. I am a real believer in safety and operating on the edge makes me very nervous. I'd also highly recomend a weight distributing hitch, know your true weight not dry weight and make sure you're balanced and not tail heavy. Just my 2c, Gerry
