Fiat 500 dolly

My other half got herself a really cute Fiat 500 Sport which we eventually want to tow behind a motor-home. Since it's an automatic, we have to tow it on a dolly with the front wheels up. I'm trying to figure out, which dolly I need. Prices vary from $1k to $4k. It only weighs 2400lbs so I don't think I need a super-heavy-duty rig. Any recommendations?

Come on, it's a Fiat 500. Just toss it up on the luggage rack. (Sorry)

turn it in, by a real 500 (rear drive/manual), and flat tow it.

Fiat

When I was in Indianapolis for their first F1 race they were advertising Mini Coopers by mounting them on the roof of Excursions.

I would fabricate a pair of folding aluminum ramps and just drive it up there.
