Honey pot usage w/out a hitch

New MH owner (GT 364) and I need help brainstorming a scenario.

We have used a honey pot during our travel trailer days and our vehicle had a hitch to tow the honey pot.

With the MH, we are using a Chevrolet Volt as our toad and have to use a tow dolly, it can't be towed on all fours.

The volt has EXTREMELY low ground clearance and while it can have a hitch installed on it I'm afraid that towing it on a tow dolly will angle the back end down even further and create clearance problems.

So..... any brilliant ideas on how I can pull a honey pot around with a small Volt without a tow hitch?

It it a hatchback? Could you tie off something to the hatch closing mechanism?

I think it depends on how the hitch is installed. We have a class I, 1 1/2 receiver on our PT Cruiser and tow it without problems, but we could remove the hitch insert to increase clearance if we needed to. We use it for a bike rack (not while towing) and to move the tow dolly in a campground if we need to.
