2017 VW Beetle

I was looking at a 2017 VW Beetle but hesitated when I thought about whether or not it would fit on my tow dolly.

I have a Demco Kar Kaddy 3, seems like it might work, but with a 71" width for the car I'm not convinced the fenders on the dolly won't hit the car in a turn.

So, does anyone tow a VW Beetle with a Democ Car Kaddy 3?

I realize this post is a few days old. Thought I would let you know I have 2017 VW Beetle that we tow on a tow dolly. It's not a Demco but does well. However, it has a swivel plate. I place a 1/2' board in the wheel well for added height. I made my own ramp extensions. We have had no issues with the trailer frame or fenders getting close to the vehicle.

Is that bug an automatic or manual tranny.. Manual 4 Down may be an option. Automatic I do not know.

4 Down is SO SO SO much easier than a dolly. Plus no dolly to stow.

Nice to know the Bettle tows well. I'm looking at an automatic, so two down on dolly is one option (or trailer).

Thanks

Ron
