Default Towing U-haul?

A friend of the family recently moved out to LA from here in minnesota, and they drove all their stuff out there in i believe the smallest enclosed u-haul that they offer, like a 10x7 or so. I helped them load it all and it was full to the brim. But the problem was that she towed it from here to LA with her 97 olds 88 (i know not bonne but just think engine). It'* got the Series II and the 4T60-E. What kind of damage could she have done from doing this? The car has 40k miles on it. She did have the fluid changes right away when she got there though.

That'* what I'd have done. Flush the trans. She would have been better off installing a $40 trans cooler before she left. But with the flush, she would have helped it a bit. Probably fine.
