I have towed my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited that tiped the scales at 4950 with 4 different class C's, a 25, a 28, and 2 33'. None of them had any problems whatsoever. All Ford, V8 for the 25 and V10 for the rest, all 5K towing capacity. Up and down mountains, just make sure you use the Tow/Haul mode that enables transmission braking.
Most of the time, I barely knew it was there...

As seen in my signature picture, our E350-V10 with a 158" wheel base and measures less than 24 feet long with 5000 hitch tows our 4400 Liberty very nicely. I do have a rear trac bar installed on the E350 and do not notice the tow vehicle except when accelerating. The tow brake makes stopping better than if not towing the Liberty. The Liberty helps slow down the motor home very effectively.

A 5000 tow vehicle towed with a 5000 rated hitch is just fine being right at the limit. But don't be filling up your tow vehicle with firewood as we sometimes do [emoticon]
