Default Help Me Understand Transmissions

I have a 2011 Hemi with the 5 speed transmission. I keep wanting to trade simply because of the 8 speed transmission. I pull a 5500 to 6000 pound trailer 10 to 12 times per year and half of that in the mountains. My truck does well but will the new 8 speed help me? Sometimes even empty if at the wrong rpm's my truck will not gear down and haul ass. Can someone please clear this up for me?
