No doubt that Rhino ramps are cheaper than other options may have been but they are a comprimise and it does not lend credence to their marketing slogan of having the most advanced dolly on the market.

I understand some folks really like this dolly but several folks have legitimate reasons for choosing another option. I much prefer electric brakes and immediately excluding ACME due to them not providing the option. The fact that the ramps are not attached is also a big negative in my book.
I think your right, and that is also why there are several makers of Tow Dollies, each of us has different ideas, desires and goals, and if the effort is put into it you most likely will find what makes you happy and that, not what others say or do is what counts.

I personally do not favor one brake system over any other, it was not one of the driving factors for me and I am sure I would have been happy with either.
