What's the heaviest load you've towed?

My 2009 Sport got introduced to my wife's 5000lb Sailboat & trailer on Friday and much to my surprise handled it quite well with power to spare. Darn thing even got better mileage(19.5 IMPG) then my 1990 Dodge D250 CTD did hauling it. So naturally it begs the question, anyone haul near or up to the rated capacity?

My truck's 8000 lbs total weight in my avitar pic, drove it for nearly 6 months with the camper on and pulling the ATV trailer for a good bit of it. Averaged 11 - 13.5 mpg (real gallons, no fake Imperial crap to make things sound good ). The do it, tranny doesn't like it a whole ton though. LR
