Tow Dolly Question

Looking for information,

I have been flat towing for 12 years but am thinking of having only 1 automobile, a Chrysler Town and Country.

Has anyone been towing one and: what type of tow dolly do use use, how much of a pain to deal with it, what are your pros and cons?

Can't speak to the vehicle but I had an Americancardolly.com dolly and loved it. But once I went 4 down I quickly said wow this is so much easier. Dolly stored under front end but find out where when airbags are deflated or you'll scratch you paint like I did! All and all I think dolly is not much more work but it is more physical and I'm in Arizona so 5 more minutes outside doing physical work in the heat= no good. Might check out drive shaft disconnect also to flat tow... Enjoy

A friend bought a used MH that included a tow dolly. He then bought a Town and Country for front wheel drive and its utility but it was too wide for the tow dolly. We had a Kar Kaddy SS before going 4 - down and I'm sure that his van would have fit. We never tried it.

So, you are rig g t in your concern. I'm sure there are others out there that would also work but you need to look at the specs to be sure. There also differences in clearance between those that have turning wheels like the Kar Kaddy and those that have the turning platform.

If you have the opportunity to put your car on it before putting down your money, do it.

I have used a dolly for 13 years, have a Master Tow and tow different cars. We have a T&C van and it is wider than the Olds van we used to have, so make sure you get the wide one, mine has electric brakes. I also tow an HHR, it just depends how many are with us as to which car we take.

As for the dolly itself I don't have a problem with it. I've got it down to a science to hook up and in about five minutes I'm rolling. I also carry extra straps just in case.
