We recently purchased a 31' National Sea View with a V10 Chassis. We are now wondering which way to go. Tow dolly or tow bar. We now would be towing a 96 Escort wagon. Who better to ask than the guy that use them. What all is really needed? I have and idea, but i want the opinions of the PROS!!!!! thanks

I tow both 4 down with one car and tow dolly with the other. No preference just car choice. Buy a good dolly and most of the concerns others talk about go away. Here's my choice http://www.demco-products.com/pages/RV/kkss.htm the Demco unit has surge brakes and the best setup I have ever seen for rachets on the straps. It folds up at the campsite or at home, a must for a townhome owner like myself.

We have a dolly but have never used it. We have watched too many people struggle with the dolly, storing it, moving it, putting the car on it in the rain. We either tow the Jeep Liberty, the Chevy Suburban, or my personal favorite, the Mini Cooper. We get the best mileage towing the Mini Cooper and have the most fun with it when we get there.

Hi Kevin,
You can see buy my signature I use both a dolly and 4 down towing methods. The dolly has it's own brakes. I have never had to unhitch a dolly at a CG. When reserving a site, I am clear on the pull through length I need. The CG will either accomodate me or I will camp elsewhere.

The choice of what we tow depends on the factors of the trip we are about to take. We tow the vehicle needed for that trip.

For me the decision is a moot point. Do what is best for you.
