On a dolly sure, why not?

Welcome by the way...

There are some that can't be towed on a dolly -- my AWD Subaru Outback is one. But I would think a straight-up front or rear-wheel drive car could.

Our 2014 Expedition cannot bet towed on a dolly either, but a 2015 can be flat towed - go figure. I think those that can't are all wheel drive type vehicles.

I have a 99 Continental for my daily commuter (also like new). The rear axle is only along for the ride.

I'm not sure how much your Continental weighs, but you should make sure the dolly has enough capacity for it.

My 98 had air ride suspension with a switch in the left front corner of the trunk which had to be shut off before towing from the front either by tow dolly or wheel lift equipped tow truck. Check your owners manual for more information about it.

Also make sure you use a 102" wide dolly for fender clearance.

Farmerb4,
Plz enter info about your Rv in the signature
Section of your profile.
This info will help us answer your question better.
There is the probability that your car plus the dolly will be too heavy for many motorhome hitches.
My "signature" is at the end of this post.
