I will try to simplify the answer the best I can.
In most states, a commercial vehicle is considered a truck over 10,000lbs, so the advantage to the 9900lbs is to side step a commercial label. (As an example I just bought a enclosed trailer and ordered it with a 9900lb gvw, if I had ordered a 14000lb gvw, and it was behind my f-550 with a 18000lbs gvw it would exeed the 26000lbs combination weight and would require a class "A" or commercial license to drive it as I use my vehicles to perform commerce. But at 9900lb it isn't classified as a commercial combination.)
Disadvantage of that in my state is on the tax side is with a commercial plate you can pro rate the sales tax over years of service as opposed to paying up front.
If its your personal vehicle with out a company name or need to have a fed dot #, (or have no idea what I'm talking about,) it won't effect you either way.
