Not necessarily. What matters here is the 30,000 pound GCWR and the 5000 pound receiver rating. The tow limit isn't 4000 pounds unless the coach is already loaded to its GVWR of 26,000 pounds: 4000+26,000= 30,000. However if the coach loaded weighed only 25,000 pounds (and many loaded coaches weigh considerably less than GVWR) then the coach could pull the 5000 pounds allowed by the hitch receiver and the 30,000 pound GCWR: 5000+25,000=30,000.
I'm in a situation with a 24,000 GVWR, a 30,000 GCWR, a 5000 receiver and a 5000 pound toad. My coach weight, all loaded, is 22,500 and adding the 5000 pounds of the loaded toad and toad rigging I hit running weight of 27,500 pounds. I have 2500 pounds of left over GCWR I can't use because I'd run out of receiver rating.
