is is safe to pull a trailer on a 575?

I have burley trailer that uses a triangle wedge to mate to the host bike, a Giant XTC hardtail.

i've been pulling my kids about with my old giant, but the v brakes and the layout are strange after spending most of my time on the 575. i'd like to try 575 out, but i don't want to screw up any of the carbon fiber stuff out back.

I'm not sure about the triangle wedge mount. I use a rear qr skewer with my kid and 575. I've been pulling him for about a season now, and haven't had a problem yet.

Check out the Chariot on the 575 thread:
First Ride with the Kid

Sorry, That's as much info as I have.

I pulled on of them with my beater bike and it chewed up my chainstay. No way would I put it on my 575.
