I had a '77 Scout II in the mid-'90s. It certainly wouldn't be MY tow vehicle of choice. That 392 will have plenty of power, but neither the short wheelbase nor the brakes are up to the task. If your "short distance" is around the campground, you'll be ok. If it involves any highway speeds at all, I wouldn't do it. If you must do it, you're into the area that Can Am RV in Canada gets into; light weight/short wheelbase vehicles for towing. I'd consult them and this would certainly be the setup that a Hensley or ProPride hitch setup would not only be desirable, but probably necessary.
