Sway when dolly towing?

Sold our previous toad and bought a volt as it fits my commute needs better. Trying to decide now if we should by a mid-late 90ís wrangler for flat tow or just get an ACME EZE dolly for the car, we are only weekend warriors with our coach and will probably only take a car/toad about 3-4 trips a year. My question is, anyone with a dolly do you experience any sway when towing? Iím very familiar with towing travel trailers, 5th wheels and really donít want to deal with sway again. I would think that given the weight of the coach vs the car being towed that wouldnít really be an issue but thought I would reach to those with direct experience with this. Thanks!

I've been pulling a Buick Verano with my Stehl tow dolly for 2 years and have had no issues with swaying.

We have a both a dolly and 4 down setups. I never noticed sway with the dolly. I nearly always tow 4 down as just seems less complicated.

Use a dolly for our Trax and is solid when towing. No issues.
