The t-case will swing just the same on a trailer as it will rolling on the street unless it is supported.
Add a couple straps that wrap around the transfer case to prevent side to side swinging. With enough care and cleverness, it shouldn't be too difficult to recreate the approximate ride height of the transfer case and keep it steady enough for 5 miles of slow towing. The motor mounts would not be carrying any more weight than they normally do.
As far as changing the angle of the engine on the mounts (to anticipate a question), we do the same thing everyday with MML and t-case drops. There is a range of flexibility and we are only talking about 5 miles.
