Tow Dolly Honda Accord

I have a Damon 335 Challenger and I am going to pick up a used Demco Kar Kaddy SS tomorrow. The owners manual for the 2013 Accord specifically says the car is not designed to tow behind a motor home. When you look further in the owners manual it says for emergency towing you must lift the front wheels off the ground using a tow vehicle with a lift. I am assuming the tow dolly accomplishes the same condition. Has anyone used a dolly to tow a Honda Accord? Mine accord is a 2013.
I am getting a pretty good price on the dolly but don't want to damage my car though. Any experience here would be welcome.

Have towed a Civic and an Accord on our dolly, albeit not a Demco.
Your Honda will be super safe and happy on the dolly...free from miles added to the Honda's lower driveline and high on the dolly protected from rock strikes.

Just ensure to NOT leave the parking brake engaged...that brake is on the rear wheels.
Also, it is a good practice to check the tightness of the tire straps whenever you stop. One of our straps came loose once (totally operator error).

Best luck

Yes, we towed an Accord on a dolly for about a year. We then bought another Accord that is a 5-speed and tow all four down. I found the dolly to be a lot of trouble to connect and strap down. Coming out of the Keys from Boyd's campground we had to disconnect and reconnect (unload and load) the Accord just to leave the campground because of a large island in the entrance. 4 down is my preference.

We have towed a Honda accord on a master tow dolly for many thousands of miles no problem.
