Tows the 330MKS just fine. I am my GCVR 9200# but well under my axle rating. I get an additional .5-.6 mpg over my previous rig. Just the wife and I and we do not run with anything in the bed of the truck. I am very careful about carrying excess weight. Maximum of one nights waste in the tanks and just enough fresh water to flush toilets.
The axle weight of the rig is 8640 and a pin weight of about 2400 #. We put a lot of miles on our rig, did over 10,000 miles last year. In Sept./Oct. we did a 5 weeks 3600 mile trip without any issues except one. Guy cut me off in Tennessee and I locked up the trailer brakes to avoid him. He was so close that I could read the time on his dash. I run my trailer brakes very tight and that is probably what prevented a wreck.
I wouldn't tow any heavier than I am now and when I get another truck, I believe it will be a 1 Ton SRW. Be sure to get the second AC.
