When towing your vehicle with a tow bar, all 4 wheels are in contact with the ground. Certain vehicles - namely, those with front-wheel-drive automatic transmissions - require either a transmission lube pump system or a driveshaft disconnect when being flat towed. Using a tow dolly eliminates the need for those by lifting your vehicle's front wheels off the road. In addition, using a dolly eliminates the need for base plates that clutter the front of your towed car, difficult-to-install wiring, and a potentially expensive supplemental braking system. Also, if you want to tow multiple vehicles, this dolly is a great alternative to traditional flat towing because you don't have to purchase and install brackets and wiring for all of your cars.


Tilting Bed Frame

Demco Tow Dolly Tilting Bed Frame

The tilting bed frame makes loading and unloading your vehicle a breeze. Pull the latch handle on the dolly's tongue toward the coupler to drop the bed frame. This will angle the loading ramps down to make it easy to drive your car onto the dolly. Once your car is properly loaded, the weight of your vehicle on the dolly will automatically reengage the latch on the tongue assembly and return the platform to a locked, level alignment. There's no need to manually relatch the bed after loading your vehicle. After unloading your vehicle, realign the platform by simply stepping down on the tongue until it latches into place.


Hydraulic Disc Brake System

Hydraulic Disc Brake System

The integrated hydraulic braking system features Demco's eZ-Latch surge coupler and disc brakes for safe stopping of your towed vehicle. When the eZ-Latch coupler latch is in the closed position, drop the coupler over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. No need to pull the latch up to open the ball socket. The drop that's built into the coupler helps you match your tow vehicle height, and the included breakaway lever activates the tow dolly's brakes should it disconnect from your RV. All hydraulic lines and fittings come pre-installed with the hoses run through the frame.


Demco Tow Dolly Disc Brakes

Disc brakes provide more consistent stopping power and a shorter stopping distance than drum brakes for safer transport of your vehicle. When you apply the brakes in your motorhome, deceleration will occur and momentum will push the dolly toward the rear of your RV. This applies force to the surge coupler's master cylinder, which sends hydraulic fluid through the lines to engage the brakes. This design ensures that the dolly brakes proportionately to your motorhome, which helps to eliminate wear and tear on your RV's brakes. And, because the brakes don't require an electrical signal, an electric brake controller is not needed.


Setup and Use

The main components of the Kar Kaddy X come pre-assembled for fast setup. Use the included instructions and hardware to attach the main frame to the tongue assembly, then install the ramps, fenders, mud flaps, and wheels. Finally, connect the pre-routed wiring.


Prior to towing, bleed the hydraulic system to remove any air from the brake fluid reservoir. Brake fluid is not included.


Demco Tow Dolly Wheel Nets

The textured ramps allow for safe loading of your vehicle onto the integrated wheel platforms. Once your towed car is in place, drape 1 tie-down strap over each front tire. Secure the straps to the platforms, and then use the tie-down winches to easily tighten the straps around the wheels. Attach the included safety chains to your vehicle's frame and you're ready to set out.


Included tie-down straps fit most standard automotive tires. Straps for large (DM03528-93) or small (DM03528-81) tires are sold separately.


Built for Highway Use

Hit the highway in the quality, well-engineered Kar Kaddy X. The dolly's radial tires create less rolling resistance and heat buildup than bias ply tires, resulting in longer tread life and improved steering at higher speeds. This makes radial tires ideal for highway use.


Demco Tow Dolly Lighting Package

The full LED lighting package is DOT compliant for safe towing. Brake, tail, and turn signal lights, and license plate marker lights are included to increase visibility on the road.


The galvanized ramps and black powder coated components resist rust and chipping. And rustproof polyethylene fenders protect your vehicle from flying road debris.

Average Customer Rating:  4.2 out of 5 stars   (32 Customer Reviews)

The Kar Kaddy was meticulously packaged and palleted. Iy arrived in great condition, thanks for using UPS freight. Instructions for assembled were straight forward. You will spend some time gettin the yoke assembly inserted and secure as the electrical connections get in the way. We ended up using cable items on the connector to keep them up and away from the pivot bolt hole. Also the taillights are a little tricky to install. I can see how people complain they fell out as you must take some time to ensure they are fully inserted in the mountain grommets. Great caddy and very well built. The brakes were easy to bleed with a power bleeder. I look forward to the upcoming camping season as now we can bring the VW toad (EOS) with us.

The trailer is great but the tail lights fall out on the road, it happened 3 different times.

Timothy

Tail lights stopped working, no visible damage to the harness.

@Timothy As a first step, we recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 on the trailer connector as each taillight function is activated. Or if possible, try the tow dolly with a different vehicle. Check to make sure the trailer connector on the tow vehicle and the tow dolly is securely connected to the non-corroded metal on the vehicle and tow dolly frame. Let us know what you find!


by:

Not that easy to put together, parts are very heavy. Instructions not real clear. On the plus side it is very sturdy much better than my previous dolly. More conveniences than other dollies I have used. I just need to figure out how to bleed the brakes, I have not seen any info on that.

Jerryd

Best Dolly on the market. Heavy duty, convenient and pulls great.



by:

We love the new car dolly. Tows well and so
Much easier to load than our previous dolly. We have had one problem. Both of the tail light holders on the fenders cracked. I called and they were both replaced. I did have to clean out the old rivets and re-river the new holders on. Also, we lost one of the tail
Lights, it popped out on a bad road. I was told it was because I did not install it correctly because I did not hear a double snap
When installing. I corrected the problem by drilling a hole
In the led light and placed a zip tie on the light in case it popped out.



by:

After I finally received tow dolly,crate/packaging was destroyed. I thought things were OK, but it turns out the brake coupler where tongue meets frame was all bent up and I was not really able to make the coupling to have a operable tow dolly. I went around with etrailer support and was finally referenced to go to Demco for help. Democo sent out a new coupler. But I have to pull brake line in tongue to attach female couple end. After getting new coupler added I will have to do a full brake bleed.

Needless to say I will not be recommending buying this tow dolly from Etrailer.

I sincerely apologize for the experience that you had with us. This is the typical experience that we want to provide. I have sent this to my customer service team for review.



by:

was surprised how fast it arrived. Also, only assembly needed is attaching the tongue to the trailer.



by:

The trailer is great BUT UNFORTUNATELY the wiring and lights are a constant challenge and struggle on essentially every trip.

Jenny N.

7/12/2023

I am sorry to hear that it has been a challenge to use. I wanted to ask if you could explain in more detail what has been going on with the wiring and lights.



by:

This seems to be a well built dolly. Only issue was one fender had slight damage and was missing the light wire bundle tie strap located on the back of the fender. They really need to build a proper shipping pallet for these. Mine was on 3 pallets that we're hobbled together, and nearly destroyed by the time I received it.



by:

Have not had a chance to use yet. Kar Kaddy had all correct parts and assembled very straight forward. No issues.



by:

We are extremely disappointed with all the electrical problems this trailer has. We expected high quality design and instead received a trailer that isn’t up to the task. The plastic housing for the lights cracked. We were sent a replacement. Then that replacement cracked. The wiring for the lights inside the housing twisted apart. The construction of the light system allowed the whole assembly to spin around as we went down the road until the wires snapped. We have spent more time with non functioning lights and too much time repairing a brand new $XXX trailer. Not Happy.



by:

Looks well built delivered well put together was fairly easy the instructions were a little confusing



by:

I think it is a great tow dolly, however I did have an incident 6/2021 while crossing Pennsylvania on the interstate between Wisconsin and New York, my passenger side, dolly tail light disappeared. Evidently a bump or pothole must have popped the tail light out of its socket and bouncing pulled loose connectors. It was there at the west side of the state, but gone by the time we got to New York. Not the best interstate I've ever been on!

It sounds like it was a rough interstate. We do have the replacement tail light for the tow dolly. It is part # DM45MV.



by:

There are two aluminum threaded chunks that the two arm braces bolt to the tounge. these need to be changed to steel threaded chunks with some type of locking measures because we all know that aluminum will not hold these bolts in because of the viberation of the dolly. One of mine fell out within the first 5 miles and the other was loose when I noticed it.



by:

Tow dolly was very well packaged, no damage so far. It looks to be a very heavy duty tow dolly.



by:

Quality of product is excellent. This was our second Demco Dolly.



by:

I ordered this trailer on Monday and it arrived on Friday. The quality is incredible. I assembled it by myself without any issues. We towed our Corolla around the Texas Hill Country this weekend and it worked perfectly. Thanks



by:

I put it all together today, you do have to be a little mechanical to do it, don't put the tires on until the fenders are on, just a little extra work, other than that it's very well built.



by:

Unit worked great - Instructions to put unit together were less than helpful - I'm not sure if the average person could have done it??

Need more detail!!!



by:

So far a very nice trailer and good looking. My Volvo V60 wagon fit nice. No slapping underneath



by:

Was missing a few bolts that I was able to get at local hardware store. Directions could have been clearer. Other than that, perfectly satisfied with purchase.



by:

After getting shipping details staightened out which etrailer did product is well built heavy duty. Wont put together until i get back from vacation very happy so far.will finish with pics after vacation



by:

Appears to be a great product, but assembly IS required. Assembly instructions are not intuitive.



by:

Easy to assemble, easy to load and unload. Great product and great customer service.



by:

It was hard to put together but a great product.

  • Maximum Width Vehicle For A Demco Kar Kaddy X
    The Demco Kar Kaddy X # DM9713093 will work with vehicles that have a tread width between 42 inches and 78 inches wide.

  • Will 2014 Honda Odyssey Fit on the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly
    The Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly # DM9713093 works with a vehicle tread width measurement up to 78". Since it sounds like you're measuring to the outsides of your tires instead of stopping at the tread I think it's safe to say your 2014 Honda Odyssey will just fit on the tow dolly. A few ways to double check this on your end would be to either have a second person hold the tape measure right at the tread on one side while you run the tape under the vehicle to the other side, or you could...

  • What Tow Dolly do I Need to Tow My 2022 Acura MDX?
    I went ahead and did some research on your 2022 Acura MDX, and I discovered that Acura recommends that you should use a tow dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly w/ Disc Brakes - Tilt Bed Frame # DM9713093 for towing. This is because your vehicle cannot be flat towed with all 4 wheels on the ground. The Kar Kaddy X will connect straight into your already-installed 4-way wiring harness on your vehicle. With the Kar Kaddy X, you do not need a brake light relay kit.

  • Does Tilting Feature of Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly Work Okay

  • Will Demco Kar Kaddy X Bounce on Highway When Unloaded
    Any unloaded tow dolly, like the Demco Kar Kaddy X # DM9713093, will bounce when empty and driving at higher speeds - this is just the nature of towing something relatively lightweight behind a motorhome. To help prevent this Demco recommends lowering the psi in the tires to 20 psi so the sidewalls aren't as rigid (might go lower if you still see bounce) and then don't go any faster than 55 mph. Be sure you fill the tires back up to the correct psi rating prior to loading a vehicle on the...

    Yes, we have confirmed with Demco that the Kar Kaddy X tow dolly part # DM9713093 is compatible with your 2022 Chevy Spark with an automatic transmission. Since your vehicle can't be flat towed with all four wheels on the ground this would be a really great option.

The Kar Kaddy features hydraulic disc brakes for safe, sure and reliable braking. The brakes are actuated by a surge coupler that compressed when the tow vehicle applies the brakes, so you won't need a brake controller.

That said, I was reading over the owners manual for a 2018 Beetle, and they do include some very important tidbits regarding towing the vehicle. They state that the vehicle should never be towed at speeds above 30 mph and the vehicle should not be towed more than 30 miles. If the vehicle must be towed you can do so with a tow dolly with the front wheels off the ground. I do suggest that...

  • Determining Tow Dolly Fit For a 2012 Toyota Sienna Minivan
    You are correct that your 2012 Toyota Sienna is 78.2" wide but that is the overall width minus the mirrors. The wheel width is going to be 77" on your Sienna which will fit within the 78" wheel width of the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly # DM9713093. You can determine the wheel width of your vehicle by finding the Track Width(Distance between center of tires on the same axle) and adding the tire width.

The tow dolly swivels, so it will track correctly behind the tow vehicle. This also applies if the dolly doesn't have a 'steer axle'.
