[DML] Re: Any updated Tow Dolly recommendations?

One OTHER important thing....Some states WILL NOT let you use a tow 
dolly on their Highways one known one is the New Jersey Turnpike I am 
sure there are other major highways that do not allow use of tow 
Dollies on their highways,I was coming from Florida to 
Connecticut,When I found out the hard way....I Had to go through NJ 
through street level roads throughout the length of NJ...Since again 
NJ turnpike does NOT allow dollies to be used on the NJ pike...I was 
Forced to use street level roads,which in reality made it more 
Dangerous,since there were like hundreds of turns and bumps and stop 
and go,tight streets, and wrong streets,wrong turns etc.(like it was 
said no backups)Something to think about when you do a cross country 
trip with a Tow Dolly.
Always use a car trailer for long distance,my one and only time using 
a tow dolly long distance...never again...the next time was with a 
NICE Aluminum Car trailer...no problems at all anywhere!!!
