The problem is that there are an awful lot of SUVs with just one person inside commuting into cities where the need for large tires, high ground clearances, powerful engines, and high torque for pulling trailers are completely unnecessary. Someone commuting to the office alone does not need a SUV.
I drive a pickup to work every day so I can pull a trailer on the weekends or go to places were most can't go. This past weekend, we went to a beach where we were half a mile from the nearest person.
There is large distinction in regulations between rules that apply equally to all and rules that require government permission based on some subjective criteria of need. They are simply not equivalent and the latter case leads to inequality and resentment.
