is it safe driving nissan exterra w/200,000 miles on it hauling a small trailer on a 1600 mile trip?

I have a good job offer but I need to take my equipment witth me and it is 1600 miles there and back. The oil is changed regularly and my tires are good. All fluids are full. I am taking my family with me to see the area and if the job is good we will move there.
