I tow my Altima on a dolly with electric brakes. You do not need a braking system for the car, only the dolly. Check your weights for towing and your Gross Combined Vehicle Weight--the car, cycle, dolly and rig loaded. I use the lights on the dolly only and have not had any problems being noticed.

I assume your 373 is on a Ford chassis with a 22,000 lb. GVWR and a 26,000 lb. GCWR. If so, according to Ford, you have a 4,000 lb. tow rating even if you have a 5,000 lb. hitch. I doubt the combined weight of a car, motorcycle and tow dolly will be lower than either of those numbers. You also need to consider the vertical hitch weight of your set up.
