Acme EZE-TOW Tow Dolly

I just purchased an Acme EZE-tow Dolly and after having it out on two trips so far I must say I'm very pleased with the purchase. The unit is extremely well made, the purchase process and shipping from the east coast to SoCal was hassle free and arrived within a week of the order. I really like the surge brake feature with disc brakes and not having to wire up electric brakes. I'm using it to tow my 2015 Prius and it works really well for that vehicle.

I know I sound like a company salesman but I'm not. I like the unit enough to step forward and say as much.

Congrats and all the best for continued success.

About the new Prius...it has push button start -yes?
How do you unlock the steering to let it swing for "EZE-Tow"ing?

Safe travels

Did you have to modify the Prius in any way. We have a 2012 Camry Hybrid and were told that the rear tires charge the battery and dolly towing may cause it to overcharge. We have been looking at the Acme Tow Dolly and have heard good things about it.

The steering column on my Prius doesn't lock ( as do several other late model cars) so I don't need to do anything special. I'm not sure about the rear wheels charging the the system and ACME has a video on their website showing a new Prius being towed with no problems. I did have to get a special hitch ball mount for my MH that dropped it by 10" such that I could maintain optimum trailer hitch mount height at 14" to 15" from the ground.

We also have a Camry Hybrid (2013) and wanted to tow dolly. Where did you hear about the rear wheels charging the batteries?

Hybrid Towing

We tow our 2005 Pruis on our KarKaddy dolly.
The MYTH about the rear axle on a Prius having anything to do with the Hybrid System has nothing to do with the truth!!
It all happens at the front of the car.
If you put a Prius on a car dolly with the front wheels off the ground the way it is supposed to be done the rear wheels will not magically charge the battery.
One thing you do not want to do after loading a Prius on a car dolly is to set the parking brake. Do Not Do It, or on any front wheel drive car.
You will be sliding the rear wheels when you take off!!!
Even rear wheel cars use the back wheel assembly to set the parking brake.

Get a good dolly with a good braking system and enjoy!!!
