Base model Ascent is only rated to tow 2000lb so even the unloaded trailer weight is over that.
So to answer your question, no you can’t tow it within limits.
I don’t want to speculate as to whether you can do it short distances without causing damage. Don’t forget with all your camping supplies you’re increasing the trailer weight over its dry weight.

The base model doesn't have the transmission cooler installed, so the CVT can overheat while towing larger loads.

The Premium and up all have the cooler installed which is the big bump from 2,000lbs to 5,000lbs.
