I have the same dolly to tow our Miata. A very nice unit. The Miata has such a low ground clearance that I remove the ramps after loading the Miata. I worry about the ramps hitting the undercarriage. You can set this up by removing the center pivot bolt on each side of the ramp. I put the ramps in the trunk. Make sure to check you straps after only a few miles of driving. They will come lose and should only need to be retightened just this once. Check the dolly and straps every time you stop. You will be happy with the dolly and hope you enjoy the new unit

See this YouTube about fixed ramps and low slung cars.
And the straps of any dolly will stretch especially when new...just check them a short time after loading...then whenever you stop.

Congrats on the new RV and safe travels
