rent from h-haul a creature that straps the the front wheels so only the back wheels are in contact with the doubt this is a FWD vehicles and no issues from components heating up will be an issue~

I wouldn't even think about towing ANY vehicle this way...Too much wear & tear on the tires, and even though it's FWD, it can't possibly be good for the tranny either. I say get a rental auto dolly (think U-Haul rents them). On a car as nice as the Reatta, I'd be more careful towing it...Somehow this pic below doesn't strike me as a good idea (even though this is a Jeep in the pic):

to pull in neutral for any length will not have any coolant is not recommended for this "tuggyTtugboat" service....for this reason only this is not recommended....keep the drivetrain out of hauler from uhaul is the answer~
