See my signature. My 5er is 12K#.
I tow around 60mph (I'm comfortable there). The truck usually has no troubles pulling in OD unless, like others mentioned, head winds, hills.
The thing to remember, these 5ers are like pulling a billboard around. They're tall and long-sided and not the most aerodynamic vehicles built. Plus you add the weight on there....unfortunately, it means the truck doesn't behave the same as it does empty (I wish there was a way to fix that, but ...........)
Sounds like you're in the same boat as us other RVers.
