Anybody used a kar kaddy ss to tow a chevy Cruze RS?

Just wondering if there is enough clearance to get this vehicle on the dolly. The RS does have a slightly lower ground clearance.

While we don't have a Cruise RS, we have a Mini Cooper with a clearance of less than 5". We couldn't load the Mini on the dolly until we raised the hitch to 23" rather than the suggested 18". The additional height was achieved by using an adjustable hitch. At this height the ramps are almost touching the ground without lowering the ramps. Once the Mini was loaded, the height was lowered by raising the jack until the load was removed from the hitch, removing the pin and readjusting the height to the correct height of 18". Another way, depending on the RV would be to raise the rear by either hydraulic jacks or air bags and then lowering before towing.

I have used a Kar Kaddy SS to tow my Honda Accord for the past year. It works well. You may want to call Demco, and ask them about the clearance. I don't know if you are near Phili, PA, but if so - you are welcome to test loading your car on my Kar Kaddy ss. Feel free to send me a pm if you want to give it a try.

That is why we got the kar kady ss was that it allowed us to tow our PT Cruiser GT. The Cruiser has a front spoiler and that was the only dolly we found that would allow us to drive the Cruiser onto it with any problems.
