Seeing as the hitch is in the center of the car, you'd have to rethink things in terms of turning radius, and you'd have to re-learn backing up (or turn it around and drive forward, like in the vid) compared to a trailer that attaches at the extreme rear of the car.

Also, the trailer is too vehicle-specific, that particular trailer wouldn't work if you drove, say, a '72 Buick Electra 225.

I'm guessing that explains the placement of the hitch.

That tow rig would put weight on the Bug, it will handle better than if it had a bumper hitch. But it would kill the Bug.

FWIW, It's not that far removed from a fifth wheel travel trailer

It is in that the VW can turn completely around giving it an order of magnitude more maneuvering capability. Backing? No, turn it around and push it in the spot. The fifth wheel type mount in the center of the car should make it very stable on the road for it's size. But like anything VW related you have to be conscious and cautious about weight.

Only 40 proof, though.

That's gotta be an awful drunk, too.
