Stehl Tow dolly with disc, surge brakes and a Kia Soul.

Removed safety chains, used from dolly to car frame.

I use vinyl coated cables pushed thru wheel openings to snap hooks.

No kneeling for me, since 2 knee replacements.

Stehl Tow electric brakes with a Ford Escape or Ranger P/U


Hmmm, will give cables a look as I'm recovering from my second knee and wondered how I was going to manage... ;-)

Landgrebe tow dolly with electric brakes. Have towed a Toyota minivan, GMC Terrain, and a Pontiac G6 -- all front wheel drive. Have also towed an older rear wheel drive BMW with a manual transmission.

Dolly towing gives you many options for a toad.

Good luck.

ACME EZE Tow dolly here as well. Towing a 2008 Chevy Malibu (which can be flat towed by the way). Have had a few issues but have worked them out over time.

Shawn- how well did your Terrain tow? and how much do they weight ? Getting ready to set up our 2013 Terrain SLT to tow. Would like to hear from you on any problems I might run into. Thanks

ACME dolly

Currently towing a Camry with it. (West Coast, here we come, again)

Have also towed Civic, Forenza, Vue, and whatever else the kids own that breaks that Dad's Auto Repair and towing service needs to go rescue.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Roadmaster elect brake dolly towing both a Honda Accord and a Buick Verona. It liked to eat tires about every 7-8000 miles but otherwise absolutely no problems
I'd still be using it ( Verona isn't 4 down friendly ) but I bought a enclosed cargo hauler.
