Probably not False -- but certainly not the whole story. Many SUVs probably can safely pull the 23F, the issue is when the SUV is also full of passengers and cargo using up the available cargo carrying capacity.
Its often mis-understood that the tow vehicle needs to have sufficient cargo capacity to handle the trailers tongue weight. Typically in 1500/150 class pickups and SUVs this is where problems start to arrise.
Balances this and finances gets tough. I made the wrong decision initally. I compromised our first TT purcashe based on a 1/2 ton Silverado and 1/2 ton Tahoe we already owned. Quickly we realized the trailer wasn't a good fit for our family, then we had kid #3, and ultimatly had to trade up TV and then TT.
Just one of life's many expensive lessons learned.
