Are you sure that rating isn't for the hitch weight - not the total weight of the trailer?
I have a revolution (although my 26.5 Eagle HT is considerably lighter) and I've never noticed a sticker on mine but I haven't looked.
I initially had some unhitching issues as well. The release handle wouldn't open unless everything was just PERFECT - just the right height, no pressure forward or backward on the hitch, etc. My dealer told me to be patient, that it always seemed to get better once the hitch got some use. He was right, After about 6 trips, I just flip the lever on my Reese Titan and the Revolution slips right out.
