I think you sound OK. If you rent from a U-Haul store, they will check it for you. They have an on line system, you put in your vehicle info and it will tell you if you are OK. My biggest concern is your hitch weight. 700lbs on an SUV is really heavy and you will be close to that.
If you go to a smaller "mom an pop" type of U-haul place, they ask fewer questions.
Do you have a Class III receiver type hitch? If not, you will need one.
Whatever you, don't tell U-Haul its for a tractor. Their system doesn't have info on them and they won't rent you a trailer (Lawyers got to them). Just say its for a 54 Ford.
Realize you are very near your tow rating. Once you are on the road. Slow and easy - be safe. If you've never towed a heavy trailer before you will understand the term "tail wagging the dog".
Have you considered just renting a truck and trailer combo from U-Haul? It would take all the guess work out of this. And a lot easier on the nerves and safer too. Heavy trailers are best with heavy trucks.
