winching 500 into trailer

Has anyone used an enclosed trailer behind a RV to mover their 500 pop? If so where did you hook the winch to bring the car into the trailer? Need trailer for wife's rascal scooter and of course my golf clubs. I am too big to get out of the car in the 7' wide trailer. Any idea for a hard point to attach the winch hook? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

Have not got the towing eye in the tool kit/spare wheel well that screws into a threaded hole behind a plastic cover on the front bumper?

Why not drive it in forwards and climb out of the boot/trunk?

Back to original problem, so if you do get a connection onto front of car and winch it into box trailer, how do you intend getting it Out?

Let the winch run out again and use the winch brake as the vehicle exits.

That's assuming it will be sloped all the way to enable it to roll back down?

Too big to get out of door, that's why I suggested if the rear seats were down its not too hard to exit via the boot?
