I used to tow a utility trailer of about
700lbs several times a week with my
1990 V6 camry. I pulled a small boat
of similar weight with it also, never
a problem. Trans was of course
flushed(not just drained) on a regular
basis. The old 4 cylinders did not have
disc brakes all around or nearly the
power of the V6. I do tow a small boat
with my 97 camry 4 but it has good
ABS brakes and more powerful engine.

An aluminum fishing boat with a 10 horse Johnson and a tackle box.

You are probably asking too much.

I have a small hitch install on my 89 camry and 93 camry. But i only use it to
haul a 4x8 trailer with miscelaneous stuff on a short distance. (Less than 10
miles)
I used oth when i moved and the trailer really help me alot on moving sofa,tv,
refrigerator. Also occasional trips to Lowes or Home Depot.

When i bought the trailer at Harbor freight, the salesman are horrified at the
notion of hauling using a 89 4 cylinder Camry. but I knew I'm going to use it
only lightly and short distance. So i'm Okay.

It is a passenger car, probably not rated for towing.
Use the gross vehicle weight rating to approximate.
For example, if you can carry four 150 lb. passengers, and 150 lbs. of
luggage, but you're only riding with one passenger and the trailer,
you could estimate the difference in load capacity (and adjust the
tire pressure accordingly).
