Wouldn't this be the simplest?

Unless you want to invest in a hydralift or cruiserlift for the scooter you might have to swap your dolly for the tandem version. Might be overkill for a scooter but adds flexibility if you decide to get a bigger bike.

I am thinking the same thing.

A 50cc scooter is less than 200 lbs, way under the tongue weight of the hitch. The dolly tongue weight is almost nothing.

I was going to pick up a Harbor Freight, scooter carrier. The type that plugs into a hitch and just U bolt it to the dolly tongue, just in front of the car.

I would leave enough room for the car to swivel on the plate, while turning.

Look at the Versahaul hitch mounted scooter haulers. Very well made and solid. I had a cheap two place hauler for my two Honda Ruckus scooters for a while but it was flimsy and made me nervous how much it bounced around when we were going down the road.... Like I said the Versahaul racks are the best ones that I have seen or used.
They have several models including ones that you can load your scooter(s) on and still tow your tow dolly behind.... Google Versahaul racks....

Add a bike carrier in between the receiver and the ball mount or on the second port of a dual hitch extender(?)

Like:
Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier - 400Lb. Capacity
or
Hitch-Haul Dirt Bike Carrier - Walmart.com
with...
http://www.harborfreight.com/dual-hi...der-69881.html

Like said above, the dolly is so light on the hitch's ball weight...no problem.
Of course...You would want to check clearance between the bike and front corner of the toad at a full lock turn.

Best luck

VersaHaul makes great products but the hitch extension is only rated to pull 3000 pounds, which is hard to stay within given the weight of most dollies and even just a Mini strapped on it. Still better than U bolts holding a rail on the dolly tongue but OP can make his choice.

Check out mototote carriers, been hauling a Zuma 50 and now a kymco 200 with zero problems, best built hitch carrier I have seen without additional modifications or welding. Nice ramp, adjustable and no open holes or gaps when loading or unloading. 200cc weighs 350 pounds and I load and unload it by myself.

Just bought a scooter carrier for my Ruckus which I will attach to the hitch on my Rubi and pull them.
