How much HP for 30,000 GVWR

I'm a newbie and about to buy Tropical 39 with 330 HP, I'm concerned with fuel consumption, power to climb grades and quality of National RV, will be towing 3,000 car. Live in South West. Any help is appreciated.

330 HP Diesel is a good power to weight to economy choice for 30,000 GVWR. Many get too excited amount more is better, it isn't always true when it comes to all factors.
