towing my wife's car

I am moving to FL in the next month or so. I want to tow my wife's VW beetle...it has a curb wieght of 2,884lbs. I am located in CO right now. Will that cause a lot of wear and tear, overall is it a good idea. She can drive it and get paid...but the trailer will be paid if too it also.

do you have the towing package? you should be fine with that, especially since it'll be highway driving
