There are lots of folks towing New Beetles 4 down with no issues. It does have to be a manual, however. I am currently setting up my 2004 Convertible to tow behind my RV. If you have an automatic, the only way is with a dolly. Search this forum using beetle as your identifier.
2008 Winnebago Aspect E450 26A. Oh, yeah, the wife and geriatric Beagle, Irwin, come along too.
