I would guess the short trips and towing could be the higher wear metals. .

I don't see a huge reason to change what you're doing, but if I did get a burr under my saddle to try something else at that mileage, I'd give Valvoline's MaxLife syn blend or Pennzoil conventional HM a run or two.

I got my Wix UOA kits from Rockauto and they were $9 and change each oh and they don't charge me extra for a TBN.
