Tow Ratings Conventional vs 5th Wheel

Any idea why Ford shows different ratings for each when Ram does not?

I always thought there was a max pull rate for towable based on the max hitch rating, but looks like that can be a lot anymore.

I would think a 5th/goose hitch would be more than a "bumper" pull hitch. A couple of years ago the 3 truck companies were supposed to get together and use the same scale for ratings
