I looked around but could not find exact specs, but I can not see any harm in towing a small trailer, keep the tongue weight as light as possible without it jumping off, say about no more than 40lbs, and the gross trailer weight 1,000 maximum

I'd agree; avoid doing any of the accelerating in overdrive, just shift up once you've reached cruising speed.

Go for it, you got a big motor and a big car that probably wont feel an extra 500lbs. That's about like having 4 adults in the car.

Yep Andrew, taking the boys to football practice 3 in the back seat @ 200lbs each and your 400 pound mother in law sitting by you telling you how to drive
