The 454 (7.4 liter) chevy truck motor is very reliable, as long as it is used regularly, and you keep the fluids full and changed. Some models have a radiator that is a little too small to cool adequately, and they tend to overheat. The P32 series MoHo chassis does not usually suffer from this problem, although they do suffer from high oil consumption. A quart or two every thousand miles is not out of line.
The older Argosy MoHo's have a 2000 pound towing capacity, you can pull a small jon boat safely, and many MoHo owners tow 2600 pound Saturns without getting into trouble.
