I have a hitch on my toad and use it to move my Demco Tow Dolly.

I tried moving the trailer wheel I have for our utility trailer to the tow dolly. Thought it was going to work until I realized the brake line runs under the center beam. Not sure about one of the angled pieces between the ball and wheels. Maybe the Maxx dolly instead. Thanks for the suggestions.

Can you back the dolly like a trailer once the car is off? Does it wander?

Backing it is easy.just watch it with the back up camera,if you go slow it doesn't apply the brakes.

If I just need to move it a little, I pick up the hitch by the chains and grunt. If I need to move it any distance, I either use my lawn tractor or I also have a hitch on the back of the TOAD.

Backing up:

Without a car on it: The dolly is very short wheel base, so it will tend to turn, and turn fast, keep an eye on it while backing.

I found backing up with a car on it is a lot easier with the ACME (non-swivel plate). The Acme doesn't tend to turn as quickly as the swivel plate type dollies, and it will skid the tires.

The HF Trailer Hitch/Dolly connection with 2 wheels to move a light trailer (apx 500 pounds total or less) is OK at best on grass. On a hard level surface, a weight up to 1-2000 pounds may also be OK. I use it for my small outboard (dingy)


For a TT weighing 4-6,000 pounds, I would opt for a powered dolly. I opted for the following (Model AC-10) - I have no affiliation with the individual or company, but tell him someone from the forum mentioned it and I am sure he could work out a forum deal for you/all in the forum. He CUSTOM makes all sizes 1 at a time specifically for the individual customer's needs/requirements. I will be getting mine in a few weeks after I pick up my new TT.
