If the owner stays within the rated capacities of the chassis there should be no problems. The GVWR is 14,500 lbs, the GCWR is 20,000 lbs, and the hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs.
We've towed either a Buick LeSabre on a dolly (4,200 lbs), or a Jeep Wrangler 4 down (3,750 lbs) behind our 2001 Winnebago Adventurer for nearly 100,000 miles. The V10 in the older class A's has 310 hp and 425 ft lbs of torque. That's only 5 hp and 5 ft lbs of torque more than the E-450. But the older class A has a GVWR of 20,500 lbs and a GCWR of 26,000 lbs.
In addition the new 450 has the tow haul mode transmission.
