Tow bar or dolly?

I'm gonna have to get a tow bar or dolly to pull behinnd my rv (Sunseeker 2900), just wanted some imput and opinions on what one I should get. We have a 2009 Ford Focus to pull. I have found the tow bar system will be much more costly. Found a stehl tow dolly used for 500 bucks (2006 model).

I have had both and for the ease of hooking up go with the tow bar. The dolly is good for cars that can not be towed 4 down. I found the hard part was moving the dolly once at campsite and storing it when not on the road. I had the blue ox tow bar and loved the ease to hook up. Remember that with either you will need some sort of extra braking. When looking at the used dolly remember to check the wheel baearings and tires.

Thanks for the reply. My wife likes to get a new car every 4-5 years, so I was concerned w/ the expense of getting new rigging for a tow bar.
