With electric or hydraulic brakes, not really; the trailer brakes  
should be sized appropriately for the load.  If the tow vehicle has  
too much braking ability, you'll risk a jackknife.

With a 200q20v, the question is whether the cooling system is up to  
the task of climbing hills with a big load, and whether the  
transmission needs any cooling.  If the radiators can't keep up under  
load, coolant temperature rises and knocking becomes a serious  
concern, particularly since charge air temps will be elevated.

I wouldn't tow with a chipped engine...
