Kar kaddy with surge brakes

I have found a used Kar Kaddy with surge brakes that seems to be in pretty good shape. It has wheels that turn when cornering.

Has anyone had any experience with this dolly since i have npone?

We have used our SS for a couple of years and about 8,000 mikes. Can't compare it to others but am very satisfied on how it works and the quality. You can't make real sharp turns with any of them but I have been impressed by how well it tracks as I watch in the mirror during a turn.

I would sell you mine but you are on the other side of the country. We bought a CRV and are converting to 4 down.

We've had the KK-460 since '06 and have towed our '05 Honda Odyssey on it for many thousands of miles with no trouble although I do see some tire wear from towing the dolly unloaded.
We did have to have Demco send us a spring unit to hold the dolly back so the brakes didn't engage so early on a downhill.
I also had the fenders break around the rivets. Demco sent me new, different design ones at no charge.
Yep, it does follow the MH wheel tracks better than towing four down.


A couple years ago I went to towing the Ody four down even though Honda says you can't do it.

I bought my 2005 Demco used, the fenders were cracked the same as Mr_D. Called Demco they sent two news ones free including shipping. Same as others I like the way it follows MH.
