Ill be picking my 5.0 the last week of october and ill be driving it around town for about 4 weeks. Im not too sure about how many local miles ill be putting on it. When its time for me to head out ill be driving from fl to nc (10 hrs away) then chill out in nc for a day or 3 then go from nc to nj (8hrs away).
Also with that^^ what I really wanted to do is rent a pick up truck and a car trailer and tow the 5.0 from fl to nc and drive it to jersey from nc. I googled the hell out of truck rentals but I kept getting results for uhaul moving trucks and all that. and places that rent trucks dont allow trailer hitches.

Shouldn't be a problem, just vary your speed a lot for the rear end to break in.

If you drive it daily for four weeks, it should be completely finished with it's break-in process before you even leave for the long drives.

You'll be fine. I wouldn't tow a new car if I didn't have to.

Vary your rpms a lot over those 4 weeks. Don't forget to redline that beast a few times a week :) and it'll be good to go.
