When I weighed Mobile Suites trailers at the various rallies, 100% of the 2500 series trucks were overloaded on either the trucks Gross weight rating, Rear axle rating or tire max load capacity. It was very interesting to see so many rigs overloaded all across the country. I weighed rv's for almost 8 years.

I believe what you're saying. So many people are overestimating their capabilities because of misunderstanding all the very confusing numbers given them by truck and trailer manufacturers.
The biggest misinformation is the term "half ton towable." IMHO, no 1/2 ton truck should be towing a 5th wheel...with very few exceptions.
