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

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

  • How to Flat Tow 2019 Chevy Spark LT with Manual Transmission Behind Motorhome
  • I found the owners manual for your 2019 Chevy Chevy Spark and under the recreational towing section I found basically all you have to do is put the vehicle in neutral and disconnect the negative battery terminal since you have a manual transmission. Since the battery gets disconnected you would need an outlet kit part # RM-9332 to power the supplemental braking system. The automatic transmission Sparks have to be towed on a dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1. For a base plate...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Wiring Connection on 2017 Thor Compass RV to Roadmaster Tow Dolly RM-2000-1 & Magnetic Lights
  • For an easy electrical hookup between your 2017 Thor Compass RV and the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1 my recommendation is to wire in a 7-way RV style socket/plug combination. Since the dolly comes only with 4-pole wiring you will need a 7-way trailer-side plug like 8-foot # H20046 or 6-foot # H20044 and a junction box like # 38656 to install the 7-way on the dolly. You can use ring terminals like # 44-5310A. This 7-way will carry all lighting signals plus the brake controller's output...

  • Can I Flat Tow A 2018 Equinox AWD?
  • According to my research if your 2018 Chevrolet Equinox AWD 2.0L 9-Speed Automatic 6T50 is a 2018 you can only tow your Equinox on a trailer. I recommend checking your owners manual to confirm. 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...
