I may have elaborated a bit much, so I'll accept some responsibility for the strawman.
But the comment WAS made about "SUV with short wheelbase" and "Dont'car what type tow system you have." This is clearly indicating that you should not tow with a short wheelbase SUV, regardless of how well the rig is otherwise setup.
I disagree. And just because the longer wheelbase is inherently more stable, does not mean that the shorter wheelbase is "asking for trouble". Last I checked, I did not see a trailer length restriction in my owner's manual.
