5x8 Enclosed trailer

I have a 2015 equinox 4cyl, I am wanting to pull my 5x8 enclosed trailer. I will be pushing the massive towing capacity of 1500 pounds. I do not have trailer brakes, Will this put wear on the motor and transmission?

Re: 5x8 Enclosed trailer

I wouldn't risk towing anything with a 4 banger Nox. You say 1500 lbs. but a 5 x 8 enclosed trailer probably weighs in pretty close to that. Are you putting anything in it?
