I can only imagine that it will look extremely unprofessional

You'll want to check into the maximum weight a Civic can tow, according to one source the Owner's manual says these cars are not designed to tow a trailer, and doing so can void the warranty (pg 194). Personally I would think you're limited to how much you can tow, but if that owner's manual specifically says not to do it I'm not arguing.
