Just by looking at how far the 90' is up on the trailer, had you brought it back some and leveled it out you would have rode smoother. I once towed an open trailer a 2011 GMC Denali 2500 HD Duramax truck from Lampasas back to Dallas, TX. What I did was reversed the truck in so it wouldn't bottom out Shiela, as it was a huge ass truck! But the EcoBoost never feared and had a pissed off GMC guy try to outrun me pullin a maybe 10' enclosed trailer. I can hear him stomp on the gas and all I did was just smoothly rolled into the gas pedal without having to stomp on it and dusted his behind...I had this Sh*t eating grin on my face...what damn good day!

You faired well on gas mileage not bad, just remember balance the trailer and you should be able to pick up 2mpgs.
