Tow Dolly.....anti-tail-wag device?

The first year we owned our motorhome we experienced a lot of tail wag when passed by fast moving trucks. After buying an Acme EZE tow dolly last fall we have logged about 5000 miles with it and have noticed tail wag has almost completely vanished. The only push we really notice now is a little nose push when a big rig blows by at something well above 70 mph.

Is this typical with 4 down towing also? If not, I guess the positive effect would be attributed to the lack of suspension on the dolly and the 102 inch stance. Whatever causes the improvement, I'm liking it a lot!!

Yes you will notice the same thing when towing 4 Down. The reason is the wall of air being displaced by the faster moving vehicle is broken up by the toad and therefore doesn't exert as large a push on the left rear corner of the towing vehicle being passed.
