Clutch feels slippery

Hi guys. I am wondering if I should replace my motorcycle's clutch already.
It has 80K miles on its belly and it has pulled a 450 pound trailer for about 15k miles around the country.
I have noticed that when I lock the throttle, let say at 80 mph, the speed goes down gradually(running on a flat terrain) about 5 to 10 mph in a short time.
Also when I am trying to accelerate hard on 4th or 5th gear, I feel the revs going up but the bike takes too long to move on.
Should I replace the entire clutch or only the metal plates(I have not looked inside it yet). How about the springs?
Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks ya'll.
