This is why I found a vehicle that was indeed flat towable.
In all of our travels with our RV + Car Trailer, we have only had to disconnect twice to get into a spot. Once was a quickie overnight in a park where we used our Passport America membership - they knew we were a 1 nighter, coming in late so I am sure we didn't get the best spot.

The other time was at the NASCAR race at Richmond, and we knew how "short" the spots were, so we just bought 2. One for the RV, one for the car and trailer.

Every other campground we have been to we've been able to keep the trailer connected AND park the car within our spot ... and with the trailer, if we were to get a "short" spot, we can park the car on the trailer.

For us, towing on the car trailer has been great. I've been in a few situations where I have had to backup - No Problem. I our less wear and tear on the vehicle being towed and I also tow the trailer behind our VW when I need to use the trailer for things like trips to the dump, the home improvement store, etc.

Now I will say that we are a bit shorter than you, Medico. Our RV is 32' where it looks like, in your signature, you are probably 45' plus your TOWD. If we had a larger RV, we might run into more problems towing a trailer - but if we had a larger RV like yours, I would want to pull an enclosed trailer.

Lost Control !

Since this post has changed to an argument about trailer, dolly or flat I'm going to look elsewhere for the answer to my original question about leasing a vehicle.

I'll come in from left field.

Are there terms and conditions in the lease agreement that would make towing it on a dolly unwise or risky?

How about you abd spouse driving the MH and car to the destination? If you dont travel a ton it aint to rough.
