If Uhaul says your vehicle will handle the trailer yes you can drive the interstate systems as long as you maintain the minimum speed limit for the hiway. In my state the speed you have to drive above is 40 mph. But if you drive that slow you are a traffic hazard.

Towing a trailer is legal in all states. There may be states where there is a reduced speed limit for vehicles towing trailers. You do not say what type of vehicle (make, model and year) only that it is a sedan, so I cannot tell you if your car can safely tow a trailer, and if so what size trailer it can handle

I have a feeling that you are going to exceed two different weight limits on the car. The first one is total payload or weight capacity of the car. Typically, it is close to 900 lbs. The next weight is towing weight. There is a maximum weight that can be towed by any car. Add the two and now you have a precarious situation as to braked. Too much weight and a trailer can easily exceed the limit of the brakes and you will not be able to stop in a decent distance. Then the transmission and engine will suffer stress and when these machines suffer stress they can overheat. . A small trailer with a light weight should not be a problem.
