I have met several different campers using the Race City tandem dolly over the years and I was seriously considering purchasing one so we could have our Jeep and Harley with us when we travel. I never heard a bad comment about them with the usual exception of having to deal with a tow dolly at all, especially one that is considerably longer than the single.
The dolly itself appeared to be very well built and several calls to the company for specific information were handled by very knowledgable and helpful employees.

The nice thing about the Race City tandem is the ability to move the plates for the car wheels rearward when carrying a bike to help take weight off of the hitch and better balance the load.

We finally decided after much debate to trade the Jeep in for a Dodge Dakota 4X4 pickup with a Blue Ox Sport Loader for the bike to avoid the hassle of dealing with a dolly and be able to tow four down. Works great so far.

Am also interested in the Race City Tandem to tow golf cart and auto. We have a Demco Kar Kaddy now with swing away tongue, brakes, etc. Works well, but want to take cart as well. Looking for a used one since the price is pretty steep, but have heard good things about the company which is here in NC where we live.

Hi
I purchased one. It seems to be well made very nice people there. Have not actually used it yet but have mounted both bike and car. If you want to know anything about feel free to ask.

We found a nice used one in Charlotte this week, but just towed it back home unloaded. Indeed they are very well built and it will be nice to haul golf cart and auto both. We looked many places before finding a used one, but saved about $2,000 by going used. They are made here in NC, just outside of Charlotte and the manufacturer is very reputable.
We are Disney Ft. Wilderness fiends and stay there alot, but $60 per day to rent a cart is not an option. With us being there 5 or 6 weeks a year we needed the car to leave the parks, and the cart to ride over the 800+ sites in the CG.
Problem solved !
