Trailer weighs somewhere around 3800lbs right now I would guess. GVWR (Maximum Weight) on the trailer is right below 4800lbs.
I just leave it in drive and the truck seems really good about picking the right gear - I have not had to override it at all (only towed around 70 miles so far) but it did include some hills and minor uphill grades. It seems to stay in 5th-6th more, but on level ground it goes shift up to 7th cruising around 55-60. I never saw 8th while towing.
It feels good though, especially with the weight distribution hitch.
