    I saw this comment on one of the forums here"
    "A RWD Model S towed backwards with the rear wheels on a dolly seems like it would be fine."

    Has anyone done this? Or any comments on this statement?

    Towed backwards with rear wheels on a dolly? What does that look like?

    How is it backwards if the rear wheels are on a dolly?

    I’d be afraid of my front bumper being torn off

    Even with air suspension set on very high, I would NOT assume the air suspension would stay on. As others have said, I’d be afraid of my front bumper would be torn off.

    That being said, if you only need to tow it a few hundred feet, you would probably get away with it.
