GVWR of the Sprinter is 11,030; GCWR is 15,250. Does anyone here have any direct experience with this that could shed some light here?

That would put your max tow rate at 4000 pounds and in my towing experience you don't want to tow max on long trips, you can but it does put max strain on the chassis and motor.
