I believe this is because it is just about impossible to control the amount of squeeze out by how tight they make the window screws and come out with a job that looks uniform on each window and the same across the coach. Ergo, smaller tape and use the top bead to deal with possible ice.

I could comment on why manufacturers do what they do ... but, I think I'll take a pass
