Smile Tow Dollys

I'm 66 and new to the world of motorhomes sure could use some good advice on tow dollies, I've been looking and see you can get two different types Elect. and Hyd surge I just bought a 2003 Holiday Rambler Scepter and well be towing a 2011 Traverse, looked at American car dolly and Kar Kaddy for some, also which is better the wheel to turn or the pan. I thank you for any help.

Tow Dollys

Have you considered towing 4 down versus a dolly?
Pros and cons exist with both.

Also might want to check manual carefully on your Traverse. I think some AWD cannot be towed on a dolly.

We have been very satisfied with the American Car Dolly and pan set up on mine. Towed many thousands of miles with no glitches. I bought it with the electric brakes and a spare tire. After delivery I decided to add a break away battery and switch.

I can find no faults and have had no problems .Our toad is a 2008 Focus and could tow almost twice as much car as I do. My average time for loading is about 10 minutes. I've towed four down before and now prefer the dolly with pan swivel table much more than 4 down.

I have used surge brakes on other trailers I have owned. They are OK but I always had problems backing up and to me the electrics are easier to maintain and repair. I like the adjustability of braking strength on the electrics.

Is your car front wheel drive or all wheel? If all wheel doubt you can tow on a dolly.
