LMAO. Did you ever drive an empty tow dolly? Make sure you have a loud radio to drown out the noise. Also, make sure you can't see it in your mirrors because you will be convinced it is about to flip over at any moment.

I chuckle at this because I just drove ours empty about 5 miles to put back into storage. And to top it off, I just got a text from a friend asking if he can borrow it. Now I get to drive it another five miles tomorrow. I can't wait.

Hmmmmmmm. Tow dolly's. I like the idea of the stair tread tape. I tried loading my toad in the rain and I had to gun the engine - but guess what - I drove over the dolly!!! and the wheels were hanging in mid air. Had to jump through hoops to get the wheels back on the dolly. I am definitely going to line the dolly with the stair tread tape.
Kind regards, Al

If you have an Acme dolly they recommended dropping the dolly's tire pressure to 35PSI when towing it empty. We hauled ours home from Acme's shop empty like that and it wasn't too bad.

Speaking of tire psi, lower the tire psi by 10lbs. Will give better traction than Re-inflate. Just a thought.
