I just pulled a 7-8k V-nose trailer from Loveland, Co to Grand Island, Nebraska. I pulled with the tow tune from Quick tricks, egts were 1100-1150 on flats and 1250 on hills in OD, 1300-1400 in 4th on hills. Could go over 1400 in I left my foot in it, when I was over 3500' above sea level, under 3000' could not see 1350, is this what others see pulling, was running 75-85. 7-8 mpg!
With innovatives "Street" tune my truck so far can not pass 1,400* towing 10,000lbs. I went on a 1,000+ mile trip last week, and I did my best to push it since it was my first time with the tune, I wanted to see how it would do.

When pulling my 44' enclosed gooseneck trailer with 2 cars in it I run IDP's tow tune and gearheads 8K tow tune. The highest EGT I have seen is about 1100. Cruising at 62 mph I see about 850-1000. I wonder why your egt's are so high pulling that light of weight.
With two full sized cars my trailer weighs in at about 16,000 lbs give or take.
