2017 FWD Honda Ridgeline & Kar Kaddy SS

I have always been a fan of the Honda Ridgeline and after driving the 2017 model I really like this truck. With the FWD option it makes it a viable option for towing with a dolly. The problem seems to be the truck width. According to the specs it comes in at 78.6 inches.

I checked in with Demco about their Kar Kaddy SS and they do not accept any vehicle over 76 inches wide. However being a high ground clearance vehicle and large tires I am hoping it will fit and the body taper will give more clearance. Problem is I don't own either the truck or the dolly. So I cannot verify if there would be a clearance problem.

Anyone know of a car dollyor own one, which would accept a vehicle wider than 76 inches?

FWD means front wheel drive only (towable on a dolly) or four wheel drive (not towable on a dolly)?
I towed a '05 Odyssey for many miles on a KK-460 with no problems other than the sidewalls of the tires were solidly up against the side of the wheel pans. Never damaged a tire but it was a concern.

The user manual on our Ultra-Fab KarTote dolly indicates 81" vehicle width, 77" to outside of towed vehicle tires and 2775 lbs. max load. Ramps and tongue all fold for storage.

We tow our 08' Odyssey on a 'dime a dozen' branded 80" wide tow dolly. I think the max tire width on all these is 77". I had to modify my dolly's fenders and weld stop spaces onto the pan part that rotates for turns as in tight turns the fenders where hitting the van's lower door panel. If the van was just 1-2" higher I wouldn't of had to do anything.

I have an inch on each side between the outside of the tire and the metal edge of the pan the tires sit in. I'll measure the width of that pan tonight.
