When the tow bar stays attached to the RV I don't see where a lighter one would be any benefit. I would just stay with the steel one and have that extra margin of safety.

+1. Not enough of an impact to lower the margin of safety.

Rigging used within its limits is safe, used over its limits it isn't. Over rigging for its own sake is wasted effort though over rigging with what comes to easily hand isn't necessarily wasted effort. Inspect rigging before use.
