Outdoorsman2012 is on a distinguished road

My camper weighs 7420 lbs, it is 29'4" long an is a full 80" interior height trailer with approx 11'4" exterior height. I drop into 5th all the time and hold it even on slight inclines but I go 60-65 usually around 63. I have noticed that going any faster like 65-68 my truck will hold 4th and not drop to 5th. I can get 9-10 mpg and all I have is a 18" magnaflow. I do have an aux. Engine oil cooler but that doesn't help shifting just keeps the oil temp down. I also am assuming you are using tow haul.
