Can a Polaris Slingshot be pulled/towed with a U-Haul tow dolly?

Is there enough ground clearance to clear the front Slingshot spoiler?

Will the odometer / mileage change if towed with the tow dolly with the two front tires on the tow dolly and the rear tire on the ground?

Hi @Akfinest 1 Welcome to the forum. I don't have experience with that, but there are many threads here regarding towing an SS. If you are just looking to rent for a short time, I would suggest a trailer. If you think you will be towing often, there are some reasonably prices rear tire towing options out there that owners love. And they will pay for themselves over time. I'm sure some users with experience will chime in.

Here is just a few that came up when I searched:

Some folks feel the front end alignment (positive toe-in) means it shouldn't be towed backwards as the toe-in might result in the Slingshot wanting to wander slightly.
That being said, several forum members have built tow dollies (Ribrunner and another member who sold his Slingshot and dolly to a fellow forum member).
Towing the Slingshot on a dolly requires a pivoting support for the rear tire to keep from stressing the swing-arm while turning. Some folks have successfully towed using the U-haul dolly with some mods to accommodate the rear wheel.
Allthingsslingshot, a forum vendor, offers a tow dolly customized for the Slingshot. It does not include wheels/tires and you need to specify how wide your rear tire is so the pivot mechanism for the rear tire can be made wide enough to handle your rear tire size.
I'm picking up mine next week.:D In my case, I don't have the garage space to store a full-size trailer and Allthingsslingshot's tow dolly allows the tongue to be removed to reduce storage space requirements. It does not include wheels/tires and you need to specify how wide your rear tire is so the pivot mechanism for the rear tire can be made wide enough to handle your rear tire size.
