Can A Truck be Towed on A Tow Dolly?

When it’s time to hit the road, you want a vehicle that’s compatible with your tow dolly. We’ve already put together a list of What Cars can be Towed on A Tow Dolly, but maybe you’d like to take your truck out on the road instead. 

If you’ve been contemplating whether or not your truck can be taken out on the road, we’re here to help you find the answers, and ensure you get on the road sooner rather than later.


Can a Truck Be Towed on A Tow Dolly?

If you’re ready to hit the road, typically most dollies can only transport front-wheel-drive cars. While we’ve heard of rear-wheel-drive vehicles being taken on the road, we personally cannot vouch for their effectiveness. When it comes to towing a rear-wheel car, it’s up to personal preference. 

If you’ve been wondering if a truck can be towed on a tow dolly, you may or may not be able to,  it depends on the model and weight of your truck. Not all trucks meet the weight restrictions required by a tow dolly.

When it comes to operating the EZE TOW Car Tow dolly, all vehicles must be under 5000 lbs curb weight, under 3000 lbs front axle weight. Our dolly has 80.5 inches between the fenders. 

So with that in mind, you’ll have to look at your truck owner’s manual to see if your truck is compatible with our tow dolly, before you can move forward.

Generally, smaller mid-sized trucks are most compatible with car towing methods using a dolly. Plus, you’ll be able to avoid the damage a tow bar can inflict on your car that comes with a flat tow. Here’s a list of mid-sized trucks that meet most standard dolly weight requirements:
