Two wheel tow dolly rating goes up to 4000 lbs. At the top but within range. anyone tried it? ive pulled boats weighing that, sailboats on trailers, and had sway issues so how do the cars on dollys act in comparison?

Cars on dollies dont sway. I've towed plenty of Hondas and whatnot with a dolly, not sure about a full size car but I've personally witnessed a Ford Ranger towing a 94 Suburban with a dolly and an S10 towing a Taurus. Pay attention to the width of the dolly you are looking at as well, they usually come in a standard width and a wide width for bigger vehicles.

I towed my RMW from Michigan to Alabama on my tow master dolly behind a Ram Crew Cab no issues pulling it just be sure the tires are not old (more than 6 or 7 years).
I experienced a blow out on the dolly and needed to call the police to escort me off the freeway since we could not exceed 25 mph with what was left of the tire. Jeff

P.S. As Jay states mark and remove the driveshaft a little oil will come out from the tail of the trans (only upon removing the DS).

Make sure you disconnect the driveshaft from the rear end.

Towed the Fleetwood from Waterloo NY to Ottawa, using a UHaul tow dolly. Only issue was the dolly was 2 inches too narrow. Needed new tires anyway cheers

Didn't even feel the thing behind us. Great way to flat tow.

I've flat towed wagons from florida, to ontario, and from virgina to ontario, I've flat towed g bodies from Kansas to ontario, and from new jersey to ontario with my wagons and never had serious issues other than bad tires.....
