The following thought is for a small lightweight buggy only...

One design I've considered, but not fully thought through yet is a "detachable" trailer. Kinda like a subframe something that attached itself to the vehicle to be towed. Or something like a tow dolly...

Another thought: maybe by unhooking the trailer, lowering the tongue to the ground, driving onto the trailer facing the wrong way. Put your front tires into pockets (on the rear of the trailer), and the rear onto a pocket thats on the ground, then when you lift the tongue up it lifts up the rear of the buggy. It would get rid of the wicked bump I see in most pics, the rear of the trailer would be taller than the front acting like a wedge (less drag?). You could backup on the trailer I suppose, I guess it would depend on your wieght distribution of the vehicle....

Just thoughts when I get bored at work...

I agree with you jmdzuk, I would probably just keep it on the trailer and it would be ready to move quickly.
