What is your question? Your post is too vague.

Wanted to know if it'll pull a trailer with a load very well? He only knew what engine it had and that he drove it at 65mph but didn't know how many rpm ! Its a two hour drive for me to go test drive it so I've been looking online for two days with no real info on that subject

Figure the average weight of a full passenger load, 30 @ 167= 5010lbs. What are you towing?

Loaded with what, pillows? Keep in mind what weighs 5k lbs sitting there, doesn't weigh the same once it's moving.
I pulled a 2k lb race car on an 20' tandem trailer with my F-150 half ton p/u.

I suspect you could tow with that regardless.

Good tires on your trailer and good brakes if it has them, and drive like a human and I'd tow just about anything you can fit onto that trailer. As long as the tongue weight/hitch class is proper and you keep a safe distance when driving I would have no concerns.
