There are a number of threads that discuss tow dolly's. I tow my car in an enclosed trailer.

Many say that they prefer to tow 4 down. I like the trailer over the 4 down and dolly because I can back up with ease.

We towed our 2005 Jedda TDI and now our 2012 Passat TDI with a Demco Kar Kaddy III. Best unit on the road in my opinion. You can get one drop shipped from PPL Motorhomes in Texas at a really good price.

The Kar Kaddy 3

Some assembly required.

I used a tow dolly before now towing 4 down. The brand I used and liked the performance, was Acme EZE dolly: Car Tow Dolly -The Lightest and Toughest Tow Dolly For All Car Towing Needs - Acme Car Tow Dolly Company The brakes worked very well and I see many in use. There are other good dolly's but I have not used them. Just be sure whichever you get has brakes. Many out there for sale but do not have brakes.

Congrats on the decision to dolly tow. The best dolly is the one that works for you.

With any dolly, your car should be very happy up high away from rock strikes, saving any wear/tear/mileage on the lower driveline, and free of any cutting/mounting for baseplates in the critical crunch zones in the front end of the car.

Like said above, hope you get brakes...not required in many areas, but smart and safer.

We have the EZE-Tow because it is as simple as can be with no extra parts (like a pivot pan or steering axle) making it affordable and very light weight (380lb) so it is very easy to move around. And, it can tow even wide track cars with 79" wide tow platform, able to tow a car weighing 4,985lb. Finally, it comes standard with surge disc brakes...no need for wiring to a controller or adjustment like for electric brakes or drum brakes.

For any dolly, it is good idea to get a lightweight hitch on the car, so you can unhook the dolly and easily move it with the car...plus these hitches can hold a bike or cargo rack on the car if desired

Best luck
