Awesome!
I have a 2017 F150 SC 4x4 with 2.7 EB w/Propride hitch Pull a 2016 Vlite 30WIKSS (around 8000lbs dry). Took it from central Ohio to Anchor Down (Dandridge, TN) through the Smokey Mountains. I averaged between 9-11 mpg driving between 65-70 mph. That engine is amazing! I will be replacing the stock P rated Good Years (once they wear out) with LT rated Michelin's...

2017 F150 4x4 3.5EB w 10 sp tran. My TT only weighs around 4800lbs and i took a short trip(200 mi) and only got 10mpg. I was surprised it was that low. I also have Max Tow option. I had it in Tow Mode. Do you think it would get better not putting in tow mode?

I have a 17 F250 PSD and am getting 12-13 towing a 26RR (7800#). I think it had more to do with aerodynamic drag and terrain than weight for my setup.

And I'm in tow/haul mode when I'm pulling it.....

I have a Chevrolet 2500HD, Crew Cab, with 8 foot bed, W/T, 4 X 4, diesel with exhaust brake, six speed manual or automatic, with tow/haul. Towing a 32 ft. 5th wheel, loaded weight 9600 lbs. Truck has a 60 gal. auxiliary fuel tank. I average 14.3 miles per gal. @ a speed of 63 mph. In 2100 miles I will burn roughly 150 gals. of diesel @a cost of $337.50, $2.25 a gal.

Keep it in tow mode. It will let the engine help you break.

The worse the drag the lower the milage and terrain plays a large role as well. I have same truck but a 2016 with 6 spds and get about 8MPG with a 7200# trailer.

Keep in mind some of these guys have a 2.7l and you have a 3.5l and others are speaking diesel. Many also have different gear ratios. If you have max tow then you have 3.55 gearing which will impact your milage as well.
