Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roadmaster Tow Dolly This tow dolly is well worth the price. I have been using mine for almost 2 years behind our 40 ft.motorhome pulling a 2008 Impala. This dolly loads easily and tows great. I do use 18 inch pieces of 2X8 on ramps to aid in the low clearance of the car. Works fine. Overall I would recommend to anyone looking for a Dolly. Although the price is a lot lower than most on the market, the quality is very good. We have been traveling the southwest and into a lot of mountainous areas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming. No problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to love it, but I couldn't. This tow dolly travels great when loaded and the brakes are fantastic. My issues are with design, loading and the electric brakes. Tthe ramps hang out and the pin must be pulled to load or off load. If someone forgets to pull the pin when off loading the ramps will bend and probably be destroyed. On loading, the stop for the tires is about 3' tall. It takes very little momentum to bounce the tires over the stop and land the car on the draw bar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Call Dolly I bought this car Dolly about 2 years ago And have had nothing but problems I do not recommend getting a car Dolly from Is Camping World in Nashville Tennessee I was rudely treated they put it together wrong The ramps were dragging and lost the pin in the front And yes the trailer was level And I had the research put on by Camping World and the car If Dolly would still drag I asked him about this and nobody wanted to help me they were very rude I have been going to Camping World If for many years and have never been treated like that before just thought everybody would like to know Thank you Danny

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potential failure in bearing and bake assembly I assembled dolly per instructions. Took dolly on test run behind RV with car loaded, Approx. 2 miles. Right Hub was running very hot and electric brakes were not working so I disassembled both wheel hubs. The right wheel bearing nut was over torqued causing excessive wheel bearing load, causing hub great excessive heat. Both brake magnets had lube between the magnets and the drums. This caused no friction between magnet and drum thus no braking of the dolly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brake adjustment required Tow Dolly arrived very quickly, even though Camping World said it was on Back Order. Pretty easy to assemble in a few hours. My problem was with the brakes. When hooked to brake controller, the right side wheel would not lock up when the brakes were applied. I tried adjusting the brake but due to the drop axle, the brake tool was worthless. I had to disassemble the hub to turn the brake adjuster. Once adjusted, all was fine, but it would nice to have them adjusted correctly before shipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product with a few flaws. The Roadmaster Universal Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes works well for what we need. I received the Tow Dolly in a huge crate. The shipping costs stated it would be delivered to our house. Then the delivery company said the tow dolly could not be delivered to our house. I had to rent a trailer to haul the tow doll and I had to unload the 650 lb crate by myself. I contacted Camping World and they graciously refunded the cost of the trailer rental. I assembled the tow dolly according to the instructions but the lights on the tow dolly would not work. After a few hours of troubleshooting I called the manufacturer and was advised to check the wiring inside the taillights. Three of the four wires leading to one of the taillights were not connected to the taillight. After correcting the wiring everything worked. We have used the tow doll a few times and found it to be well mad, but badly wired, and easy to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Roadmaster tow dolly I did not actually pruchase the product for one reason: the tie straps, provided with the product are for a maximum 16 wheels,. My car has 17 wheels, and an increasing number of vehicles come with 17, 18 or 19 wheels. I am now looking for some other product that will be able to accomodate my needs, but I think that Camping World should look into this situation: it impairs the usefullness of an otherwise fine product..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4-5 stars. This product has worked out for us. 4-5 stars, I put it at 4 stars because we have only had the opportunity to use it for one relatively short trip. We have not had any negative issues, It was delivered in a timely manner, even though it "out of stock".

What is the width of a vehicle you can tow with this dolly? Can you tow a 2019 GMC AT4 or a 2021 Cadillac Escalade?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have yet to use the dolly for long distant (Covid) but I have used it with a 2019 Honda Fit and purposely may full lock turns in both directions without issues. However, this was not the case with my 2017 Ford Escape. I could not even turn out of the driveway without the fender contacting the car. The width of the Escape was less than the 77 inch limit. I would talk with Roadmaster before committing since the Escape is probably smaller than the vehicles being considered.

Can I tow my 2010 Dodge Charger? It has rear wheel drive

Asked by: Bluebarron67
In regards to weight and width, your car is compatible with this tow dolly if it has factory suspension. As for towing procedure, you will need to refer to your owner's manual or consult with a Dodge dealership for specifics as the reference database we previously used is no longer available.
