I have a Golf Plus 1.9 Diesel Automatic. I've just bought a combi camp trailer tent. They're very lightweight. I haven't picked it up yet, but am I right in that a trailer that light, that it doesn't need brakes, would be fine to be towed with a 1.9 Diesel? The auto gearbox can be switched to manual... Would it be better to tow with it in manual?
It's been many years since I towed anything.
Thanks for any replies

No worries at all with towing an unbraked trailer with that car, and no need to take the gearbox out of normal auto mode. Enjoy
