I'm getting 10mpg towing a 7500# TT. Maybe something's wrong with your truck? Or you were fighting headwinds at 75mph?
To the O.P. I'm in similar weight territory. You'll be right at the hitch receiver rating, payload rating and/or rear GAWR. A trip to the CAT scale, fully loaded, will help you decide how best to adjust your WDH, whether to put more or less weight on the front axle. And, of course, you'll want a good WDH with good sway control.
