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.


Electric Brakes

The built-in electric brakes make it safe and easy to stop your vehicle while you're towing. This meets towing requirements, and also helps prevent the extra wear and tear on your RV's brakes that would otherwise occur because of the added towing weight. An electric brake controller (sold separately) must be purchased and mounted inside your RV to complete the installation. In addition, you will need to install a 6-way or 7-way trailer connector on the dolly so that it can receive the braking signal from your RV.


Universal Compatibility

Adjustable Ramps

The sliding ramps offer a 36" range of adjustment to ensure a precise fit for almost any vehicle you decide to tow. Also, the included wheel nets adjust to fit tires that are up to 30" outer diameter x 11" wide.


Storage

Laser-cut grooves give you extra traction while loading and unloading your vehicle.


Self-Steering Wheels

The self-steering wheels and stabilizer make the dolly more maneuverable around corners. This keeps your towed vehicle safe and on course by allowing the dolly to better track your motor home. Once your vehicle is loaded onto the dolly, simply pull the steering safety pin out to engage the self-steering wheels. Be sure to put the safety pin back in if you tow the dolly without a load.


Convenient Bed Tilt

Bed Tilt

You will never again have to crawl under your car to tilt the bed of a dolly. Roadmaster's tow dolly includes a conveniently located tilt release to make loading and unloading your vehicle even faster and easier.


Locking Storage System

Storage

Stow tie-downs, wheel nets, tow lights, or any other accessories you decide to take along with you in the dolly's handy storage trays. Both compartments lock securely using the same key and are located near the front of the dolly for quick and easy access, even while the car is being towed.

This is by far the best dolly I have ever towed. The adjustable width axle with self steering wheels tracks straight every time. The tires show virtually no wear after 7k miles of use. It took about 2 hours to put together by myself. Great product! 315561

  • How to Tow Kia Soul with Automatic Transmission
  • Since the Kia Soul with automatic transmission cannot be flat-towed with all wheels on the ground, your best option for towing your Soul is to use a towing dolly, such as the RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, part # RM-2000-1. This product is adjustable to fit many vehicles, and includes electric trailer brakes, radial tires, adjustable wheel nets, tail/brake lights and a 6-way round trailer connector.

  • What is the Average Vehicle Tow Dolly Width
  • Most modern tow dollies are either wide enough to handle most any late model vehicle that can be placed on a dolly or width adjustable to accommodate a variety of vehicle styles. The RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, # RM-2000-1, is one of the latter. It adjusts from 93-1/2 inches to 101-1/2 inches. That is 7-3/4 feet to 8-1/2 feet. There are not too many vehicles that are wider than this and that can also be placed on a tow dolly.

  • Can 2016 Ram 1500 Automatic be Flat Towed Behind an RV and What Parts are Needed to Do So
  • The 2016 Ram 1500 can be flat towed with all 4 wheels on the ground only if it is a 4x4. If you have a 2-wheel drive Ram then it can be towed using a tow dolly with the REAR wheels off the ground. This is in the recreational towing section of the owner's manual, page 711. If you do have a 4x4 then for base plates I recommend # RM-52289-4. And for a compatible tow bar I recommend the 10,000 pound capacity Blackhawk All-Terrain tow bar # RM-422. And for 10,000 pound safety cables I recommend...

  • Towing Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Using Tow Dolly

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium
  • Yes, disconnecting the battery with a Quick-Disconnect, like the Deka part # DW05312, will be the easy way to go when it comes to disconnecting the battery on your 2017 Ford Edge so it can be flat towed. Disconnecting the battery prevents it from draining while you are flat towing. Since the owner's manual states that the battery must be disconnected I strongly recommend following those instructions and not trying to get by it somehow. That is one of the down sides to flat towing with...

  • What Is the Weight of the RoadMaster Tow Dolly and What is Coupler Height
  • I called RoadMaster and got the following weight measurements. The weight of the dolly is 620 pounds. The shipping weight is 794 pounds. I have sent an update email to have this information corrected on our site. The trailer tongue and coupler height are fixed, they are not adjustable. A ball mount should be selected that has the proper rise or drop so that the dolly is riding level on the axle. The coupler height is 18 inches on the dolly. So you would need a ball mount that would keep...

  • According to the online edition of the Ford Owner's manual for the 2016 Explorer (pages 249 and 250), certain versions of the vehicle can be flat towed under specific conditions. The adaptive cruise control feature does not factor in, but Ford notes that FRONT-wheel-drive and FOUR-wheel-drive Explorers cannot be flat towed with all four wheels on the ground.

  • Roadmaster Tow Dolly Weight Capacity
  • The capacity of the RoadMaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1 that you referenced is 4,380 lbs. Your 2007 Ford F-150 will weigh between 4,758 and 5,875 lbs so while it could tow a vehicle with this dolly it could not be towed on this dolly. Since you gave the axle and towing capacities of your truck it is hard to say if you are in need of a dolly to tow your truck or a dolly to tow with your truck.

With your front wheel drive vehicle in park, turn off your ignition and remove the key. Turn your steering wheel so that it clicks into a locked position. If it will not lock, you will need a steering lock like # WICL303RED. To finish securing your vehicle, prior to attaching...

  • Using E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit, # EZT20B, with a Tow Dolly Already Connected to RV Trailer Connector

It also has a 4-Way flat trailer connector with extra blue wire for the electric brakes and not a 7-Way. Since your RV has a 7-Way, what I recommend is to change the connector on the tow dolly to a 7-Way, # PK12706, and then you can use the Hopkins mutli-tow adapter, # HM47570. This connector will allow you to plug in the 4-Way...

  • Can Rear Wheel Drive Car Be Towed Backwards on a Tow Dolly
  • A vehicle should not be towed backward on a tow dolly because if the steering wheel is left unlocked, the car would fishtail all over the place. If the steering wheel was locked, the steering linkage would break at the first sharp turn or the first bump you hit which would also cause the vehicle to fishtail. Your best bet would be to tow the vehicle from the front and disconnect/remove the driveshaft. The only way around that would be to place the vehicle on a trailer.
