Toad Dolly

I have to tow my Scion front-wheels up, but the car is so short (it's an iQ) that I need a dolly with removable or retractable ramps. Any suggestions? Would like to keep the cost around 1K or so. Thanks.

Acme Tow Dolly has removable ramps and tows front wheel drive vehicles like a Prius which is low. Look it up on Youtube.

I use the ACME dolly. Ramps are removable, surge brakes, dolly is light and simple.

I tow a small/low to ground car (Chevy Aveo) with the Acme EZE tow and have been pleased with it - entering my 5th year without an issue.
If you move a lot, I put a small tow hitch on the towed car - this makes it handy to unload at a near by parking lot and use the car to tow/move the dolly to the camp site. I didn't even bother wiring the tow car up for lights.

American Car Dolly works well for me with a similar connection requirement- no ramps

The Acme also uses low profile tires which give you a lower load height.
