2 things (among many) that I have learned here

First....no matter what the owners manual says, your RV weighs more than that!
Second...you can never have too much truck for pulling all that understated weight!

Well, the frame on my trailer says it should not be towed by a one ton truck or more so I might have to disagree with you on that point. lol

As long as the trailer is sitting level while being towed I really don't see how it cares how big or heavy duty the truck is.

X2 - can't see how the size of the truck would make any difference at all, as long as it's level.

Could the trailer with lighter frame be dependent on a softer suspension of the truck versus a stiff 1 ton. I don't see the problem either, just tossing that out there

A bit of a stretch here but imagine your 22' TT being yanked around by a Peterbuilt as its running through all those gears from a dead stop.

No idea, but when I get the trailer out of the shop I'll snap a pic for you.
