Tow Dollies Facilitate Easy Movement of Spare Vehicles

Tow Dollies are small trailers that facilitate carrying of a small vehicle like car or bike behind the main vehicle you are driving. Tow dollies help in hauling by placing two front tires of the car on the tow dolly whereas the rear tires are on the road.

Confusion over Extra Vehicle Hauling

Heading on a trip to the woods with your friends? Are you ready with your RV? But one thing is bothering you. You are a wild and adventurous gang of pals setting out to enjoy in the wilderness, to explore the different areas, to trek, to bask in the sun, to swim in the open ponds, and other wacky things. You feel that the RV that you are using will be too big for your other small tours in the forest. You want this RV to be the main vehicle to be stationed at a point, and for your other small explorations, you need something that is small, smooth, and fast – meant just for the sake of travelling and not for storing stuff (like an RV). And you don’t have more than 1 driver to drive the second vehicle along, so you are scratching your head to come up with a solution.

 

Tow Dollies – Facilitate Spare Car Hauling

If you are confused as to what how you can take along a small, spare car with you that will facilitate your explorative journeys, consider using a tow dolly. Tow Dollies are small trailers that facilitate carrying of a small vehicle like car or bike behind the main vehicle (RV in this case) you are driving. Tow dollies help in hauling by placing two front tires of the car on the tow dolly whereas the rear tires are on the road. However, there are tow dollies that allow all the 4 tires of the car to be placed onto the dolly.

 

Perfect Hitching

Do the hitching part in the way that is the most comfortable for you. If your car is rather small, than a tow dolly will do. However, if your spare car is a big one, merely using a tow dolly won’t be enough. This is because car dollies weigh a lot, and there is a max limit for the vehicle to be towed, else the possibility of accidents is huge.

 

Features

Though tow dolly is the simplest of trailers, it has the capacity of towing heavy vehicles with ease. Depending upon the type of car dolly, you can move small to mid-sized cars, vans, and even huge trucks. For larger vehicles, you may need to install features that offer extra protection and security like brakes and safety chains.

 

Price

Trailer Manufacturers who offer tow dollies at affordable prices are in plenty in the market. To get the most value for your money, go for quality dollies. For this, always buy directly from a manufacturer. This will let you grab the benefit of buying these dollies at factory-direct prices.

 

Licensing Laws

In certain states in the US, tow dollies are considered as a separate vehicle and require you to have a separate license. This is more so when the vehicle to be towed is heavy-weight. So, check out the laws of the state before starting off on the journey. Abide by the laws of the state. I’m sure nobody likes to be stopped in their tracks with 2 vehicles and a tow dolly between them.
