Regardless of power plant the series non power assisted drum brakes dont stop the trucks own weight much less an additional load. Even with a power assist conversion they are still scary stopping their own weight. This from a large man with very strong legs who has bent things trying to stop a 109 with nothing in tow.

There is a Canadian guy with a SII that pulls a huge agosy trailer (27, or so) with a Chevy v6 engine pwr brakes and steering...
That small of a trailer .. Go for it just don't worry about doing more than 40 mph sometimes

That Canadian is someone I know who wears a Black Watch Kilt and enjoys life...
His towing experience is not where I would want to be.

It's a Happy Camper. They are built to be towed by a Mini Cooper.
