I towed a Soul, on a Stehl Tow dolly for 4 years, before trading up to a newer car.

One issue I had was some cupping of the rear tires, probably because its such a short car and the angles change when the front is up.

The other issue was with the steering wheel lock. I did some heavy maneuvering to get out of a gas station and cut the turn way to tight. That caused the lock pin to bend and I couldn't turn the key.

Got it free with some force and then removed the lock pin completely a few days later.

The dolly is great and we now tow a Honda Ridgeline on it.
Replaced the brake pads and tires, last year, at 40,000 something miles.

Another dolly to look at if you are towing a car with no steering lock is the Acme EZE Tow. This dolly requires that the steering be unlocked but many cars no longer have locking steering wheels. The BIG feature for us is that when not being used, the dolly can be stored vertically which is how we store it in our car port. It takes up abou 16 inches or so of floor space and my Chevy Avalanche is parked right in front of it. This dolly has radial tires and surge hydraulic disc brakes, not drum brakes. We picked it up used for $1100 and it came with a spare tire and wheel, 3 sets of straps, and car-to-dolly safety chains.

I towed a Soul with a Master Tow Dolly with no problems. I now have an American Car Dolly. I prefer it over the Master Tow. The main reason it is much easier to move the empty dolly around with the removable ramps off.

I have used a Stehl tow dolly on a Born Free class C and now on my Newmar class A and it has worked great. The Stehl allows the front end of the tied down toad to move on a platform to respond to a directional change from the RV. This results in an improved turning radius and less stress on the trailer and tires.

We have decided to venture into the 4 down realm and will be selling our tow dolly. I probably will regret that decision but it will not be my first experience with that feeling.
