Is my thermostat bad?

85 degree day running truck unloaded at 55-60MPH water temp never exceeds 182 while driving never more than 186 idle in traffic.

I pulled my camper this two weeks ago and the temp was 60 degrees outside, water temp struggled to stay at 190 even pulling a grade.

Does this indicate my thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced? I am monitoring temps with a Scangauge, oil temps when unloaded are 190-195.

Thanks.
