Towing question

I got a deal on a 6'x10' enclosed box trailer. I'm just using it for storage right now, I'm thinking I'd be fine towing it with my commander. It would be great to tow to and leave on job sites. Not sure of the weight, from what I've found online these trailers weight between 1100 and 2000 pounds empty. Do you think the Commander can handle that ok?

Thanks

I have a 5'x8' Doo Little enclosed box trailer that's loaded with all of my camping, hunting & fishing stuff that I hall around every so often; Other than lousier than normal gas mileage, you'll be fine pulling that around.
