I have a 2014 VW Beetle and want to be able to tow a trailer with my motorcycle in it. Has anyone done this?

I just put a Curt hitch on my 2001 Beetle, it was not too hard, just had to drill holes in the spare tire area for the mounting bolts, and trim a little of the heat shielding around the muffler. I believe it is rated for gross trailer weight of 2000 lbs, and max 200 lbs tongue weight.
I got hitch for $157.99 on amazon

I recommend a HELPER for the install, I did it myself by balancing it on a jack to hold it up, but that was challenging. !!!!

Thanks for the response. My Beetle is automatic. Does that make a difference?
