Well here my 3 cents (increased from 2 cents due to inflation).

Depends on the kind of towing.

Spoting a trailer in your driveway: over load the hell out of it, no big deal.

Towing on relativly Flat ground at low speed, under 35 MPH: I would tow about anything.

Towing in steep hills with long down grades: I would not even get close to manufactures recomendations, without trailer brakes and cearful use of down shifting on down grades.

Towing accross the country at 75 MPH: I would keep it very light well below recomended if I did it at all.

I will start using Metric only when the duodecimal system is adopted!!
