Tow Dolly with highest wt. carrying capability??

Want to tow 2007 Honda Odyssey but thus far only found Acme EZTow with enough wt. capacity. Those I found for Roadmaster and Kartote were weight limited for me. Would like one that has the wheels steer vice fixed. When I see statements like no U turns, 90 degrees max turn, etc. I hate to be that limited. Any other dolly suggestions?

You could consider towing four wheels down with a Remco Lube Pump Kit Assembly and a quick disconnect tow bar. I understand CampingWorld carries and installs them.
Remco : The Towing Experts
This would allow quick disconnect and access to driving the Honda and no trailer to find space to park at a camp site.


If you are a DIY person, here is how to install.

NOTE: If you choose tow your Honda, and have any damage to the Transmission as a result, you will have to pay for that expense out of pocket. It is nothing that Honda or Remco will warranty. Also, it should be noted that Remco sells no aftermarket product (Lube Pump or otherwise) to make this car towable.
However we have towed our '05 Ody both four down and on a Demco KK-460. Demco used an '05 Ody for their advertising pictures.
After towing the Ody four down to Phoenix and back and having the battery (new just before trip) go dead three times, ruining a set of tires, needing an alignment and numerous rock chips I decided to go back to the dolly.
I wouldn't want to tow anything wider than our Ody though and the '10's and newer are wider.

Thumbs up

We have a Demco KarKatty SS, turning tires, we tow a 1999 Cad.Deville Concours. with no problems. It is impossible to back up though so don't get yourself in a place you can't get out of or you will have to take the toad off and trailer off you get the picture. I think and others might chime in but about the only thing that can be backed up is a trailer trailer. I tried and I could back up my 45 foot trailer when I drove a 18 wheeler. Goggle KarKattyss and see what you find. It can also tow with the wheels staying straight.

ps no SNOW today and no snow yesterday What gives
