Alaska-toad on a dolly

It has been suggested that itís good to have toad doing Alaska which I agree with. Would like to hear from folks that have done it with tow dolly about their experiences good, bad and recommendations. My mh is a V10 gasser 32ft. Coming from New Jersey itís 3200mi one way to Lake Louise. Iíve used the dolly with my Ford Escape up and down the east coast to fla no problems. Iíve done 2 trips cross country in mh without the toad and had a great time. I figure to get something that is flat towable with all necessary equipment will be at least $10,000, used of course. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, you can do it. The dolly will probably be bouncing a bit on rough road construction and be sure to slow waaaay down when approaching frost heaves. Many are marked by flags but some are not. After you zoom through one you'll know better what to look for on the horizon so you don't do it again. Have spare tires for the dolly.
