U.S.-rated towing capacity may be almost nil, but that doesn't mean anything. Get a Westfalia hitch and you can put 1800kg back there (with brakes on the trailer). Get the Euro plug-in harness and convert your trailer to Euro-spec lighting and VCDS can be told to detect the trailer and adjust the ABS automatically.
