Look in your Owner's Manual in Section 8-61 - 8-63. You'll find a lot of useful information there.
But according to the details you've provided, the Owner's Manual says that a V6 engine with FWD has a "Maximum Trailer Weight with Trailer Brakes" of 3,500 lbs. The Gross Combination Weight Rating ("the total allowable weight of the completely loaded vehicle and trailer, including any passengers, cargo, equipment and conversions) is 7,937 lbs.
You should also read the section in the Owner's Manual regarding Weight of the Trailer Tongue.
Unfortunately, there's nothing in the Owner's Manual about specific driving conditions, such as pulling a boat & trailer or using a boat ramp.

Well it sounds like it should handle it. I am going to try this weekend. The ramp where I go does have a metal grill type finish to it for extra traction so I imagine I should be ok. I will just put it in a low gear and go slow the first time and see what occurs.
anyone else have and experience with their Equinox trailering a larger boat?
