Increasing TOAD weight?

Looking at a 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee upgrade from a 2008 Ford Edge. Curb weight increase of about 800lbs.. With the ISC 330 in a heavy bus, will the extra tow weight be a big deal? Hills? Or not so much?
I do know that the rig feels so much quicker without the 4000lb toad attached.......

I pull a 2005 Jeep with my 2002 Windsor 350ISC, barely notice it's back there. Mine is a much heavier coach so you have a better weight/HP ratio then I do.

You'll likely notice a slight decrease in MPG. I know that switching from our car/tow dolly to flat towing our JKU, I'm getting about 1-1.5 mpg less according to the Silver Leaf system.
