Your Opinion Please on this dolly

Could I get your opinions on this Dolly. I may buy it to haul a small Italian car Behind my 34 ft Triple E Commander with F53 460 chassis.

Tow 4 down if possible otherwise you will have to push the dolly around to find a place to park it.
I towed a 2006 corolla for 5 years behind my 2003 35f Commander (8.1 GM) and behind my Empress for 3 years. Easy to connect and disconnect (Blue OX). I did see a fellow using a trailer to hall his Bentley Convertible.
You should have to power to tow the dolly and car.

The way the ramps tilt you might want to try it out first to make sure that the underside front of the car doesn't hit anything while loading and unloading.

It looks like it might have steerable wheels which makes corning better.

Make sure the straps are in good condition

Dolly’s are a great value and offer versatility over tow bars as you can load almost any car on it. With a tow bar, the car being towed requires a special kit to fit the tow bar. Also, only certain model cars can be towed with all 4 wheels down (see the Trailer Life Towing guide). The detractor is you cannot back up with the dolly attached. You have to unload the car and then disconnect the dolly. As hard as you try to park away from others so the front of your RV is open, occasionally someone will park in front of you and you will be forced to back up.
I found great pricing for Dolly’s on Equipment Trader online. Search nationwide. Look at the online price and compare to the price for this Dolly.

Looks like a good dolly with hydraulic breaks. I had one and put a class I hitch on the car to tow it to my spot. Worked fine!

PLease try agian

Is this dolly a good one? Has anybody had experience with this style.
I'm not interested in opinions on 4 wheels down or other methods of towing.

I am only interested in this particular dolly. I have decided to get a dolly because i will use it for other purposes than behind my motor home.
Is this a good dolly or crap????
It's like this is a Chev better than a Ford????
Same kind of Question!!
Thanks I guess I was not clear in my questions.

Thanks for your reply. The steering type spindles are ok? So many out there to choose from. I want to make the right choice.

It appears to have steerable wheels, surge brakes and adequate lighting, and good fenders. Can't tel much else but, if you like it buy it.

Here is the one I had for 2 years going cross country, just lost a number plate. It was a Master Tow.

narampa, what is the make/model of the dolly?

I also have a Master Tow and love it. Most of these are manufactured offshore and then assembled in the USA.
