Can tow 2004 Camry on a dolly. Now, where do you rent a car dolly with brakes. U Ha

We are 77 , not much MH driving in the future so don't want to buy one. Other option just rent a car when we need one

We tired to rent a tow dolly from Uhaul when we bought our MH but when they put the car in their computer and then the MH it said our car was 50 lbs to much. That is GVWR. That means with people, luggage, etc., in the car. I told the guy no one was riding in the car when we pull it on a dolly but he had to go by his computer.
So I went to craigslist and found a new Kar Kaddy SS for 1/2 what it sells for new.
Since you don't want to buy one you might check your local RV lot and see if they have rentals. Also, the RV maintenance place may have a customer that will let you rent theirs. I had a lady that works in an Rv maintenance place needed to borrow one and one of her customers said she could use his.
Good luck and hope you find one.

Since none of the cars we owned were towable we traveled for 10 years without a toad. We did have to plan ahead a few times when we were going to be in an area without any rental cars available. One place we traveled to the closest place to rent a car was 80 miles away so we picked up the car on our way and delivered it back when we left.

Enterprise will usually come to the campground.

We were at a local rental place today renting vans for camp and noticed that they have a dolly they rent. They are not a chain but rent trucks vans, and cars. You might try to find a similar type place in your area that is not constrained by corporate attorneys.

If you check Craig's list and other local classifieds, I'd think you might be able to buy a used dolly. Renting a car for a week or so would be more than the cost of a used dolly. Selling it when you're done should recoup most of it's original price. If you're only talking about a weekend, rent a car. If you're talking a few weeks or months of travel, I'd look to buy a used dolly.
