Dolly Towing VW New Beetle

Hi, does anyone out there have any experience dolly towing the VW New Beetle? I have a 2010 New Beetle Convertible and am wondering how it worked for you? Thanks in advance.

All though not a Beetle, I tow a 2012 Prius with an ACME dolly with no issues and the prius is lower and longer nose in front of the wheels.
I think you will not have a problem if using an ACME dolly.

We tow a 05 Vw bettle behind our Hurricane 31s. The F53 engine and chassis Handles this with no problems. We use a tow dolly as well.

What kind of dolly do you use? Any problems using the dolly with the VW Beetle? Thank you in advance.

We use a Master Tow dolly. You will need to get a board to place in front of the ramps to keep the front of the VW from scraping. Other than that, works fine. I would suggest loading the VW on the dolly before purchasing, to make sure there are no other scraping issues. As you well know the bettle does sit very low to the ground.
