New motor home

Just traded my Jayco Ultra Lite for the Redhawk 31XL.

Looking for a vehicle tow dolly, so i can tow my Honda CRV or my daughter's Honda Civic.

Any suggestions?

Should get the motorhome next week

I have flat towed a vehicle and towed with a master tow and now use an "Acme" tow dolly made in Winston-Salem NC. I really prefer to flat tow. We towed with an Airstream class A, using the aluminum Blue Ox tow bar and the brake buddy brake system. Loved it. We now have a Red Hawk and our current vehicles are not flat towable. We first bought a new heavy duty Mastertow with surge brakes and regular brake shoes. It was good, but not great. I sold it and bought a new Acme tow dolly. I love how the Acme tows. It has disc brakes with surge, and in my opinion, pulls better than the Mastertow did.

Isn't your SUV flat towable? Flat towing is much easier an using a dolly, and quicker to hook up or unhook.

Having owned and used both brands of heavy duty tow dollies, I recommend the Acme one.

Good luck on your choice.

Steve

I get my Redhawk 31XL one week from today! I order an ACME tow dolly. I do not believe my CRV is flat towable.

Thanks to all for their congrats and advice!

This is my first MH and it looks like with my TV 4 on the ground is not an option. The tow dolly's I've seen so far range from $1,200 all the way to $4,000. What determines which one I need, or is best for my application. I have an old Ford Escape that I want to drag around and am considering the Acme as I've read good things, but wondering what is causing others to spend $2,500 more on another dolly. Do they do something the Acme doesn't?
