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.
