I see no reason why not, but on some brake systems it is necessary to have the unit reasonably level. Would the angle the unit sits at be a detriment to the operation?

Also, since the towed is attached to the dolly with straps (maybe a safety chain also) what kind of strain will be put on those straps when the towed wheels on the ground are the point of contact for braking the combination? What I am trying to say, albeit not very clearly, is the brakes on the car will be trying to stop forward motion while the dolly is just traveling waiting for the MH to stop it with maybe the assistance from the braking system.
