level towing - VW Beetle or Chevy Spark
Click here to Login

I"m spring at acquiring a dingy and was considering a VM Beetle or Chevy spark. Kinda desire something lite to pull behind mine 24.2 Axis. Any kind of pulled among these or have any feedback on if they have the right to be flat towed if a hands-on transmission. I considered the Smart auto but they don"t have actually very an excellent reviews for drivability.

You are watching: Can a vw beetle be flat towed


One quite thing about the Smart: it"s small enough come be quickly trailered with all four wheels tucked-up turn off the ground. It"s much much easier to simply buy one of them, and also the appropriate trailer.
I taken into consideration that but how does the drive. I"ve heard they aren"t really good, specifically on the highway.
Smart car is great choice (IMO) with a small single axle trailer (no brakes required). You will be pulling it under the highway with the coach and using it locally to discover on city streets/back roads. That"s my choice so far as I already have a trailer. Used ones can be bought with the adjust you uncover in your sofa. Plus, with this collection up it"s one less axle on toll fee roads. You also will have actually room on the trailer for ladder, extra fuel jugs, dried camping generator, etc. Pretty to have options.
I experienced an old wait cooled beetle at a dealer that already was collection up to it is in towed. That disappeared before I could get my head approximately what a exorbitant toad it would be. Great I had actually one!
Spark manual have the right to be flat towed but not the CVT.Personally i think friend get more for her money with the Sonic which deserve to be towed v auto transmission and also is only 2700 lbs.

I saw an old waiting cooled beetle at a dealer that already was collection up to be towed. That disappeared prior to I could get mine head about what a wonderful toad it would certainly be. Wish I had one!
I towed a "74 Super pest behind our Hurricane 32n for about a few months. Pros- actual light weight, paid $3200 incl. Tow bar. Simple hook up. Towed great. Didn"t influence gas mileage. Cons- wife hated it. We space in ours 70"s and complicated to obtain in and out. Hitch mount hits speed bumps, however could it is in fixed. If i were a small younger and didn"t have to listen to mine lovely bride, i would placed some time and $ to settle it up and add some type of toad brakes. Wound up selling it for $2600 and used the money to download a SMI brake system for our "11 cool Cherokee. No sense comparing apples and also oranges. VW was great by me, Jeep much better for us. Don"t understand anything around the Chevy, so can"t help there.
Wont hijack thread yet I"m considering pulling this 70 VW. Ns have currently loaded on mine motorcycle trailer come see. Well within full weight capacity however need to check tongue weight. Thx Dennis.
Flat towing a Chevy Sonic (automatic). Blue Ox tow system. Hook up takes 15 min. Unhook 5 min. Good little tow. A neat little car to drive.
Budman...think around a tiny tandem trailer...hate the believed of a blowout and that an insect hitting someone"s windshield!! seems COG is high!

Thanks yet I really don"t take it these points lightly!!! The trailer volume is 3000 lbs. The auto barely weights 1800 lbs. The trailer weights 600 lbs. The tire capacity is 1760 each. So, ns am method below the limits and also don"t take this easily. Ns have additionally purchased 4 10000 lbs straps to tie the auto down to trailer. Ns do think I to be considering all i can except absolute disaster!!! however that can happen w anything and also there is no means to predict it or prevent it keep going to who somewhere. Thanks for the concern however that weight and limits is probably much less or close climate 2 full dress Harleys on that trailer and that"s what that is designed for. Also, i have talked to the manufacture of the trailer if the helps. Lock say walk for it. Thx, Dennis.
That"s funny due to the fact that I have joined a an insect forum also and the speak is everyone over 50 has actually a an insect or memory of a bug in their life somehow!!! Thx Dennis.
and much more risky with level tires and such.... Through a double you can at the very least limp off the road.I"ve despite a lot about this. Never towed behind the RV yet I have actually towed every sorts the trailers a lot. Couple of other under sides to a trailer. Renders the rig lot longer....too lengthy for most Cracker Barrel parking lots. Need significantly longer sites at the CGand more work hitching and also unhitching.I think the a tow dolly, if the toad would permit it, can be slightly better than a trailer...in part ways.BUt i think I would certainly lean more towards level towing something.
