I'd just pony up the extra $10 for the full trailer, as the dolly and rear tires of the car like to steer separately, adding some interesting complexity to backing up and giving you lots of tail steer on the highway.

If you have an automatic transmission, watch carefully about towing it from the front-end. You differential needs to be lubricated enough. (From Bentley Publishers.) Could result in considerable damage.

ok i'm back things went well beside the damage to the headlights fogs and driver side fender.

went over a a big pices of wood what was laying on the road the guy in front of me went around but for me it was to late to do anything so i went straight for the wood :(
i did not wanted to go around doing 110km/h and having a trailer attached
why is there so much shitt on the fricking road all the time when you drive west ????
