It ain't the "rating". Otherwise we'd be using ST tires.
Both can use reinforcement as SAE underestimated WDH force. A Reese extension tube kit cut to behind the rear axle pumpkin and diagonally to frame rails. Etc.
But only the Reese starts in the correct plane.
Take your time.
And to the OP. Get the FALR to 100% as your default hitch setting. TT tires to sidewall maximum. TV tires to door placard number range. Look for side to side discrepancies in TT weights and see if moving items aboard is worthwhile.
If I can tell 5-lbs in a front tire and a pallet being 4" off center on a 53" flatbed, I'm guessing RVers can learn to work formulas and learn a new norm.
Too high TV tire pressure and too low TT pressure is the wrong direction.
