I went to your web site & looked at the improvements you have made. I probably would use it if I had the new one seems to have solved all of the problem I had with it. But as mine is I would not use it again. don't like the plastic ramps, tire straps or safety chains. None of the upgrades are easily done to an older one except the safety chains.

The Acme EZE TOW Tow Dolly

Actually, every improvement we make can be easily retrofitted to all previous generation dollies. We offer everything you need including instructions for a welder. It is well worth the time to do it. If you are interested just call me and we can discuss the improvements and work out a special deal for you. Thanks.

X 2 on the checking & tightening the straps.
I usually stop after 50 miles and check, most of the time they are still tight but once in a while I didn't give enough of a grunt and can get them one more click.
Very Happy with my KarKaddySS.

Done it both ways

Over the years we have towed both ways- 4 down and most recently on a dolly.

Hands down we prefer the dolly (American Car Dolly).

When we towed 4 down with our older rig years ago and we seemed to constantly struggle with hooking up and constraints. On one occasion when up in the Maritimes of Canada we had just come down a hill (pre rear camera days). I heard a grinding noise and asked the Mrs. (Momma) to go to the back window in the MH and see what the noise was. She was grumpy and grippey but reluctantly she went to look out the rear window of the rig. Next I heard a blood curdling scream from the rear and I looked to my left rear mirror and saw the Jeep toad pull out to as if it wanted to pass the MH!!! It was operator error and yours truly had not properly installed the hitch. And with a blessing the safety cables barely held it until I could coast to a stop. Made it home safely than goodness.

For us now with the new rig and Momma insisting on a front wheel drive car, the tow dolly is easy and quick and we have numerous safety features (spare dolly tire, car to dolly chains,break away switch, electric brakes, safety chains to tow vehicle). Last trip the total load and hook up was 10 minutes--- and it tows beautifully with no apparent adverse impact on mileage.

All of us have on the forum have likely had many different experiences with toads. Having done it both ways I plan to stick with the dolly.

I solved that problem with a car hauler. I have a 2011 Mustang GT and also hauled a 2013 Ford Explorer on my Big Tex 18' car hauler. It backs easy enough and trailer tires are a lot cheaper ha
