The Acme "EZE-TOW" Tow Dolly does use 10 inch wheels. However the tires are 21.5 inches tall, 8.5 inches wide, 10 ply "E" Rated tires rated to tow 1650 lbs each. They hold 90 PSI . We have been using these tires and wheels since 2006 trouble free. It is an extremely reliable tire. It is the same tire and wheel we use under our Acme EZE-GAS Refueling Systems. Our original design included steel built in ramps. We quickly discovered that there are a lot of nuisance issues with attached ramps. We decided to start using a light weight but strong ramp that is storable. It has proven to be very effective and is available nationwide. The "EZE-TOW" Tow Dolly is a fully engineered and tested system. It is quite different from all the other designs and as such is often not fully understood. As the manufacturer I would be glad to answer any questions regarding the design of the "EZE-TOW" Tow Dolly. In this format, via email, or phone. However I do not want to get into debates or arguments about what is better and why. As far as I know all the Tow Dolly manufactures build a fine product. It is the consumer that has to decide what features are important to them and why. In my opinion every product on the market is the sum of its parts, or components. Our dolly is designed for our number one end user, retirees and the elderly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thanks. Richard Brown.

This would back-up the perks of using surge brakes and your story mirrors exactly what I have experienced with surge brakes (boat trailer and dolly). I have no idea why Winnebago would red flag surge brakes...that's like saying flat towing with inertia brakes is bad

Sorry about the pain you feel chaining-up the toad. We have always just hooked the safety chain from the front of the dolly's tray to the toad's front shipping hoop(s) that are just under the front bumper - no need to get dirty.

Best luck selling the Demco. They are excellent dolly's and should command a good price used.

Safe travels
I always thought it was Kar Kaddy SS but its on the unit as KARKADDYSS

After much research, I decided on the Demco Kar Kaddy SS. I have had it over a year, and towed long & short distances. I don't even know my toad is back there most of the time! I really like the fold up feature, as I store it behind my motorhome and it only takes up a couple feet of space.

I just got mine and am real impressed with the quality, steerable wheels and heavy duty disc brakes. Just wish they included a spare tire! chris
