Towing

Planning on towing a 2008 standard Honda Fit with a 1998 national Trade Winds. Looking for some feedback on what tow methods would be most suitable for this pair.

I tow a 2010 prius on an acme tow dolly, behind my 2000 tradewinds and as both of our vehicles have low ground clearence and you decide on a tow dolly, be careful as to what you purchase, my first dolly caused considerable damage to my air dam when ramping and de ramping. The design of the acme built in N,C. has worked very well. Disc surge brakes and simple ramping made towing a breeze.10,000 miles out west no problem. Good luck.

7000#'s? Did you load the Kia with gold or lead bars?

Our '05 Odyssey weighs about 4,400# dry and even with the dolly (KK-460) wouldn't go over 5,500#'s.
