Touring with a Carbon Bike

Just wondering if everyone thinks I'm crazy. I have gone cross country before so know what a real touring bike is like. That said, I currently bought an amazing road bike that I think will be very comfortable touring with as well. It is a Specialized Roubaix which has special inserts that dampen the ride significantly. This bike completely got rid of back pain when I use to ride over 5 hours. Here's a link with a description:

I plan to buy a B.O.B. Yak trailer and take a short trip (500 miles) to test it out. I guess my question is whether anyone knows anyone that has done this. Should I worry about the durability of the bike? It's handling with the trailer?
