But, again, you are subject to the maximum the tow vehicle can accept.
With my 5th wheel and tow vehicle I have enough “cushion” to tow a trailer with a UTV in tandem with my RV.
Is that "enough cushion" based on payload, GVWR & axle ratings or the overly inflated max tow weight the manufacturers brag about?

Two and three axle trailers become horses of another color.
You mean "...double the hitch weight...." right?
