You don't have a problem until you have a problem. Then what?
I have four friends ( Jim, Steve, Elaine, and Jodie ) that towed with small SUVs. No problem. Until they had transmission problems.
Jodie would run her AC off of a 110 circuit, no problem, it worked...until it didn't work. ( $$$$$$)
I towed with a V8 1500
van, trans cooler, 5000 lbs towing capacity, 3000 lbs trailer with new brakes. No problem, until I had to replace the rotors.....twice.$$)
Point is.....besides safety issues, towing a trailer puts stress on a vehicle's engine, trans and braking system. Sometimes things catch up with you, and sometimes those around you.
I just don't think 1000 posts makes me less informed. But this is an eye opener. I think it's great that manufacturers are making better tow vehicles.
