[DML] Re: Any updated Tow Dolly recommendations?



Dave,

I agree with Mike and others that using a full open trailer
is a much safer transport option, even if the tow dolly used
has brakes.  I blew a right rear trailer tire on the way to
DCS 2008 this summer and other than bending up the trailer
fender and getting some blown tire debris stuck under the
trailer axle and frame, I had no transport related damage.

I have also seen the results from a blown tire on a DeLorean
trailered with a tow dolly and the damage was not pretty.

Personally, I would not use a tow dolly for my first option
for any transport through mountains, especially in winter.

If you want to try to save some weight, look for a rental
place that rents aluminum open flatbed car haulers.  They
may be a little harder to find than the local U-Haul, but
they do offer some decent weight saving once you find one.

Later,
Rich W.
