Hi all,

Am purchasing the Master Tow HD dolly with E. brakes, to tow our Buick Park Ave., and am wondering if anyone uses an anti sway bar of some kind. Because this car being on the heavy side, am a bit aprehensive and concerned about sway.

Am towing with a Georgie boy cruisemaster with the w22 chassis, so shouldn't have a problem there.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I am only towing about 2951 lbs, but no sway at all.

I wouldn't even know it was there if it wasn't for the camera, and DW asking, why is that car following us so close.

I tow a Caddy Deville (4200# street weight). There is no problem with swaying. The dolly and Caddy follow straight line, right behind the coach.

Thank you all. Am looking forward with our trip,
but still aprehensive on towing. Just the thought of the MH and toad being almost 50 Ft. in length is sheer madness to me, but will take it slow!

You are probably worrying about a problem that was never there when I pulled a dolly and a front wheel drive car. The only problem that I encountered was hooking up and unhooking in the rain!
