IMO the "everyone" are the RV dealers, they tend to refer to UVW's when selling a HTT, TT, etc., not in terms of realistic (ready-to-camp) loaded weights, and/or GVWR's. In most cases they send a TT off their lot with WDH's sized without any consideration for potential loaded weights (let alone GVWR's).
On the positive side, I believe that JOF members in general focus on loaded weights based on their respective loading habits, and/or GVWR's.
