Not intelligently. Possibly legally but it is not a very smart thing to do.

Check that a Prius is approved for towing with a dolly. It might seem logical that it would be ok to tow on the rear wheels but this might not be the case considering all the electronics.

As far as towing without dolly brakes - big risk. The coach is capable of stopping with the Prius in tow but not as quickly as it would otherwise. In an accident, whether it is your fault or not, the lawyers would love denying an insurance claim - or worse.

Will it and the dolly weigh more than 3,000lbs? If so, most states will require brakes.
