What Cars Can Be Towed on a Tow Dolly?

So you have recently purchased a new RV. Ready for adventure and wonderment on the road. Now you have to decide how you are going to take a car with you. Well, a high-quality Car Tow Dolly is an ideal solution to the question. Below we’re going to review the various reasons why, and what kind of cars, work best on a Car Tow Dolly.


Why choose a Car Tow Dolly?

For many travelers, it’s hard to know if you should flat tow, dolly tow, or purchase a trailer if you have to transport your car for long-distance. A car tow dolly is one of the safest and affordable options for your vehicle and will be great for your car long term – here’s why.

Flat towing your car can add additional miles to your car and places unnecessary risks to the car as it’s behind your RV or another vehicle. It usually also requires cutting holes into the front facia of your car.   A tow bar system is very expensive and can only be used for that particular vehicle. If you decide to change cars at any point you will have to pay a few thousand dollars for another tow bar, only to discover that tow bars have little or no resale value. 

A trailer is a more expensive investment, that’s ideal for larger cars and multiple vehicles going inside. For instance, if you liked ATVs and motorcycles, it’s highly compelling to purchase a trailer and transport everything you need within it. However, you will find that most RV parks cannot accommodate large trailers. 

A Car Tow Dolly is a great in-between solution for these – it’s ideal for transporting your car safely and securely, and making sure you never have to worry about the additional concerns that come with traveling with your vehicle for long periods of time. A Car Tow Dolly allows you to tow any car you want while on the road or at home. Our Car Tow Dolly stands and stores vertically, thus requiring very little space at RV parks.  Plus, because of its very high resale value, it’s a financial investment that makes traveling with your car practical and economical. 

Now that we covered ‘why’ let’s discuss the ‘what.’


What Cars are Compatible with My Tow Dolly?

When it comes to your tow dolly, there are a few important components to consider. Depending on the type of car you have, there are certain elements that you have to consider prior to purchasing a dolly.

A Car Tow Dolly is designed for front-wheel-drive cars that weigh 5000 pounds “curb weight” or less. While front-wheel and rear-wheel drive are pretty standard in many car models, when it comes to your vehicle it’s best to check in your owner’s manual or with your dealer and see what type of power train your car has. The last thing you want to do is make an assumption and risk damaging your car because you think it has front-wheel drive, but it doesn’t.

However, once you determine if your car can be towed on a Car Tow Dolly, it’s easy to use and efficiently gets your vehicle from one place to another, thanks to the secure way it’s attached to your vehicle. An added bonus? You won’t add miles to your car during transportation, because your rear wheels are independent of the mileage sensor on your car.
