Roadtrek as tow vehicle?

Does anyone have experience with Roadtreks? I had been thinking about getting an older conversion van as a tow vehicle, then saw one of the Roadtreks. After reading through their website, I'm pretty impressed with the specs, on paper at least. They claim to have a 12.5 to 13.5k towing capacity. The Chevy seems superior to the Dodge.

I'd appreciate opinions, personal experience stories, etc.

The Dodge version GCRW is 13.5k but the Roadtrek is a full class B motorhome and has a curb weight in the 9000 lb range and is close to being overloaded as is with out a trailer. I would not even consider this vehicle for towing.
