2003 Diesel pusher Bluebird 8.3 Towing?

Ok so I have a 2003 Bluebird with a Cummings 8.3 with Allison trans. What are your thoughts on towing a trailer? My son races qauter midget cars and would pull 3-4 at a time in a 7x17 up to an 8x20 trailer. What are your thoughts on this good idea or horrible idea?

Just make sure the hitch is well-installed. Some rear engine buses the engine sub-frame isn't suitable for mounting a hitch so it takes some more creative engineering to ensure the weight and stress of the trailer load is being carried by the main chassis frame. Otherwise, I wouldn't doubt the 8.3L can handle the task. Oh, and trailer brakes!
