Its very hard to control the distance between you and the car in front of you.
even though you're probably going 10mph slower, people will be passing you and getting back into your lane right in front of you, because people are morons. people use their cell phones and smack the kids in the back seat.
The distance most definitely does matter. If you're on the road 9 hours, you will be using the brakes many more times than if you were on the road 1 hour. You will be seeing many more cars where something could potentialy happen.
I don't mean to start an arguement or anything. People tow like this all the time, i would just hate to say "you'll be fine" and lead you into a potential accident.
If you asked if you could tow it on a flatbed trailer with brakes, even though that is way over the rated GVWR of the bronco, i would say you'd be fine.
