Hey bcbrowne do you have any issues with the extended tow dolly draging we are thinking of doing the same thing to a tow dolly we already have and just wanted to know if you have any pictures of how you made yours

No, no issues dragging or towing. just built it last year and have about 3500 miles plus or minus with either a goldwing or a golfcart on it pulling a car, have even used it a few times as a trailer without the car to move my zero turn mower and haul a welder to work. not sure how to add pictures on this site but will take some tomorrow nite and see if i can add them.

I like the idea of taking our Wing with as well. We looked at the hydrolic lifts, but decided that they are too price and of singular usage.

I'd also like to see some pictures and an estimate of cost and build time. If you have trouble posting pictures, please email to me at: Offeringlist@gmail.com

Ground clearance is the only thing keeping us from going with a Fit. What's the distance of your baseplate lugs to the pavement? The rear overhang on our C already causes the hitch to drag now and then. Wouldn't want to lower it much.

2012 Chevy Equinox, automatic 4 cyl. front wheel drive that you tow 4 wheels down, I use a Roadmaster tow bar and baseplate that you can hardly see when driving. Brakebuddy for the braking system, the Equinox has loads of room and we get 27.5 mpg. Many people ask me about it, saying they made the mistake of getting too small of a toad. Your call big or small.

Tow a 2006 Jeep Wrangler with 6 speed manual transmission. Use a Blue Ox tow bar and baseplate. Have a Brake Buddy Classic. Tows easily and fun to drive when you get there!

2004 Jeep Wrangler auto with a hardtop. US Gear Unified tow brake has its own vacuum pump so you always have power brakes.

We tow a Jeep Wrangler with a Hinte tow bar and a Brake Buddy. Love it, my wife and I enjoy off roading in Utah, and Wyoming. However at 70+ we are starting to find the ride a touch rough.
