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.

Video Transcript for RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Tow Dolly with electric brakes, part number RM-2000-1. You need to haul your vehicle, but you don't to make any modifications to it like adding a base plate. The Roadmaster Tow Dolly is perfect for you. It's going to allow you tow a vehicle up to 4,380 pounds, with a tire-to-tire width of up to 76". It features self-steering wheels with a stabilizer to make the dolly more maneuverable, so it can easily track your RV. It comes standard with electric brakes to make stopping easier, and less strenuous on your RV. You will, however, need to trade out your 4-pole connection for a 6-round or a 7-way.

You'll also want to make sure that your towing vehicle is set up with an electric brake controller. Your vehicle is held in place with the included wheel nets, and they are adjustable to fit most tires. Additionally, two safety chains help secure your vehicle in a catastrophic event. We've gone ahead and removed the vehicle so we can go over some additional features. Here you can see the wheel cradles that are going to help keep our tires situated in place. Both the cradle and the ramp feature raised treads for added traction.

The dual pin latch insures the ramps stay engaged even if one pin fails. The locking storage compartments are not only a great place to keep your safety chains, but they're also a great way to store your accessories. The trailer comes complete with amber side marker lights, turn, brake, and running lights, three additional red warning lights, and a license plate bracket with license plate light. If you need lights for your tow vehicle we recommend part number TL21RK. Our tires are protected by a steel fender with mud flaps. The trailer comes with two 215 75 R14 radial tires.

The trailer features Accu-lube hubs that let you easily add grease to the bearing through the grease fitting. The trailer width is adjustable, at it's narrow position it's 93 1/2", at it's widest position it's 101 1/2". The trailer's overall length is 136". The ramps are also adjustable, at it's narrowest position it's 40" outer edge to outer edge, at it's widest position it's 76" outer edge to outer edge. The ramps themselves with accommodate a tire up to 16" wide. Now that we've gone over the features we'll go ahead and show you how to to use it.

The first thing we need to do is make sure that our camper is on a level surface, and that the parking and emergency brake is on. We also need to make sure that our tow dolly is in line with the camper, or the RV. We're just about ready to hook it up. We need to make sure that we have a ball height between 17" and 19". We'll go ahead measure that and see what we've got. We've got about 18 14", so we're perfect. Let's go ahead and lift our coupler up. For this coupler you need to make sure that you have a 2" ball, and we're going to set that in place, and then lock it down, just like that. Let's connect our wiring harness. Keep in mind that this is 4-pole connection, so we'll plug it in. Now we can hook up our safety chains. For our safety chains we had to make sure that they're run in a cross pattern underneath the tongue, so we're going to be running the right one to the left side like this, and then the left one to the right side. We'll be using the included quick-links to connect them together, and then we can tighten that down. We'll repeat that same process for the right side there, perfect. Let's remove the steering safety pin. This is going to allow the wheels to pivot back and forth as we go around corners, or steer. If we we're to just be towing the dolly itself, we would want to leave this in place. Let's turn our attention to the tilt bed lever. Once we pull this up this is going to allow the ramps to drop down towards the ground, that way we can easily line and pull up our vehicle. We'll pull that loose, and you may have to apply additional pressure to get them down to the ground. Once we get our tires up into the two cradles it will put enough weight on it to close and latch automatically. Let's go ahead and pull on. It's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands, that way you can do it safely. Underneath the vehicle here you can see that I've pulled on, and you'll know that you've pulled on far enough when the U-safety pin here is latched on top of the deck, as you see it here. You always want to make sure that this is done before you move any further. During transportation your steering wheel will need to be immobilized. If it does not lock, we recommend getting part number WICL303RED, and that's going to keep it from moving back and forth. We need to connect the bed safety chains, and those are going to be located underneath here. Those have quick-links as well, so we'll need to undo that. We need to connect it to a secure point underneath our vehicle. When we do so we need to leave a little bit of slack in there to leave room for the suspension to go up and down as we're on the road. I'm going to connect them to here, it's going to go through and then back over, and connect it to itself. When we get this one done we can repeat that same process on the other side, which is going to be our passenger side. We can secure our car to our tow dolly, and the way we're going to do that is we're going to use the included tie-down straps. There's one for each specific side. The important thing we need to make sure is that our hook is always facing towards the rear. We're going to set it in place, the top strap is going to go over our tire. What we want to do is get this portion here with the loose strap in the front at the 3 o'clock position here, basically the center of the tire. The other side with the buckle at the 9 o'clock position. Once we get it set up we can pull our buckle tight. When securing your hook you'll want to use the slot that's closest to the center of the tire, which will be our center one here. We'll pull our buckle the rest of the way tight. Let's go up to the front. Our ratchet here in the front is adjustable from side-to-side, and again, you'll want to be sure that that is centered with the tire. We'll feed our strap down through, we'll want to be sure and unlock the ratchet. Press in and then bring it out. Feed that all the way down through, and then we can ratchet it up. Then they'll lock it down, we'll close it up like that. Now that we've got everything all hooked up we're just about ready to hit the road. A few things to go over is it's not a bad idea to check your lights and your brakes if you've got them hooked up. If your vehicle is front wheel drive you'll want to be sure and put it in park. If it's rear wheel drive you want to make sure it can be pulled with the rear wheels on the ground without damaging the transmission. If the towed car's emergency brake's applied to the front wheels set the emergency brake. Do not set the emergency brake if they apply to the rear wheels. When you reach your destination and you're ready to unload, or disconnect, you want to first make sure that your RV and your vehicle are inline with one another, and on a level ground. Let's disconnect our safety chains from our vehicle. Next we can unlock the ratchet and remove the wheel nets. The way we'll want to do that is we'll want to pull down on this lever here to unlock the ratchet, we'll raise it all the way up until it breaks loose, just like that. Then we can grab our loose strap back here, and simply pull on it until it unravels. Then we'll finish pulling it out, then we can remove the wheel net. I'm going around here, and then onto our hook. Let's pull the bed tilt lever to release the tilt latch. If you've immobilized your steering wheel now's the time to set it free. Now you can slowly back off the dolly while somebody guides you for safety. With the car unloaded we can raise the ramps into the locked position. We can reinsert the steering safety pin. Finally, we can disconnect from our RV. That's going to complete our look at the Roadmaster Tow Dolly with electric brakes, part number RM-2000-1.

Average Customer Rating:  4.3 out of 5 stars   (3 Customer Reviews)

Tow your vehicle without installing a tow bar or base plates. This tow dolly has self-steering wheels for superior maneuverability and electric brakes for safe stopping. Adjustable axle positions and sliding ramps fit almost any vehicle.

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



- RM-2000-1
by:

I made several short pulls with no noticeable problems: However, on my first long pull (2000 mi) I noticed extreme tire wear that required two. It was surprising having followed the assembly instructions as closely as possible. I discovered that apparently the alignment procedure is no guarantee of proper alignment since it resulted in a large tow-out condition that wore the inside of both tires to the steel belts. I also discovered there are no alignment facilities that are willing or know how to align the dolly. Making adjustments based on physical measurement comparisons from the front-to-front and rear to rear treads were the answer to a proper alignment. 526149

This tow dolly is one of the best engineered and well made pieces of equipment I have ever seen or owned. Many of its features are well thought out and, of coarse, from trial and error. In this case, that means a well rounded piece of equipment that easy to use and user friendly. I don't have pictures yet but will send some along as I get them. 492508

  • What is the Best Way to Tow a 2012 Fiat 500 Behind a Motorhome
  • According to the owner's manual for a 2012 Fiat 500 with a manual transmission (excluding 500c and 500 Abarth), the vehicle can be flat towed with all four wheels down and dolly towed with either the front two or rear two wheels off of the ground. In regards to which is better between flat-tow and dolly tow, they both have their benefits. If you have a leased vehicle or don't want to make any modifications as you plan to exchange it, dolly tow would be your best option but if you plan to...

  • Can a 2014 Kia Sorento GDI be Towed with a Tow Dolly
  • I took a look at the online version of your owner's manual and it looks like you can use a tow dolly for your 2014 Kia Sorento GDI as long as it is 2WD. If you have a 4WD then it needs to be towed with all 4 wheels off of the ground. I do recommend checking with your owner's manual or your nearest Kia dealer to confirm this. For tow dolly applications we have the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2050-1 and # RM-2000-1. The major differences between these 2 options is that the former has a weight...

Since the battery gets disconnected you would need an outlet kit part # RM-9332 to power the supplemental braking system.

If your owners manual confirms that the Equinox is able to be flat towed, I have the following recommendations to get your towing started. You will need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1689 along with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365. This comes with the safety chains needed. For your tow...

  • According to page 137 of the owner's manual it looks like you can only use a tow dolly to tow your 2005 Mini Cooper if it has an automatic transmission. Since you have a manual transmission you need to flat tow it otherwise you will damage the transmission. The manual doesn't say anything about what gear to put your vehicle in but I would imagine it is neutral. You will want to confirm this with your local Mini dealer. For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit,...

This dolly will work great too as it has more capacity than needed, brakes, and can steer. To convert the 4-way to a 7-way to operate the brakes you'll want the 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # ET7WK. This comes with a 7-way and a junction box to make the conversion as easy and clean as possible. The brake controller I recommend is the Prodigy P3 part # 90195 because this brake controller...

  • Tow Lights that Wont Damage Paint on a 2012 Toyota Prius Towed on a Car Dolly
  • I actually have an easier solution that does not require additional wiring and is very inexpensive. Since the magnetic lights are harming the paint finish on your 2012 Toyota Prius I recommend using Tow Partners # TLP01. Close these guys in the window of the Prius and the lights will stick to them instead of to the car! Since there are no flat towing parts for the Prius none of the other wiring kits are tested or confirmed to fit on it.

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...
