"Some are even less," such as this coach, and most Sprinter-based coaches.
According to the brochure (link here
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): 11,030 pounds
Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR): 15,250 pounds
Hitch Rating: 5,000 pounds horizontal, 500 pounds vertical
The Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) s the weight of the fully-loaded coach. The tow limit is
GCWR - GVW
If the View is loaded to its GVWR (that is, GVW = GVWR), the flat-tow limit is 4,220 pounds (15,250 - 11,030 = 4,220). A 4,500-pound vehicle will exceed the View's GCWR.
You can load the coach below its GVWR. In this instance, you'd have to be at least 280 pounds (15,250 - 4,500 = 10,750, 11,030 - 10,750 = 280) below the GVWR to tow 4,500 pounds and stay within the GVWR. BUT, most small Class Cs such as the View have low cargo capacity, meaning it's unlikely it would be 280 pounds below GVWR when loaded.
Ford E-450-based Class Cs can have tow ratings in excess of 5,000 pounds, both GCWR - GVWR and hitch. You would be better off looking at them. They are gas, not diesel.
Or, get a toad that weighs below 4,000 pounds.
