[DMCForum] Re: Making plans for PF (Tow Dolly)



Why in the world would you try to dolly it backwards? No one ever does
that.

I'm a big fan of tow dollys. They're easier to control than a trailer.
You don't need any special wiring (just run temporary wires from the
dolly's lights to your own tail/brake lights). Weigh just a fraction
of a trailer.

UHaul used to rent them $50 per day (3 day minimum).

I do NOT trust dolly wheel straps -- bring some extra come alongs and
tie the chassis to the dolly itself.

Also, criss cross the safety chains under the tongue. Should it come
loose from the ball, chains will hold it up.

Isn't your DeLo a straight drive? If so, you don't even need to remove
the drive axles.

7,000 lbs GTW is well into Class III. You'll hardly notice the car
until you get to the mountains (be careful with that transmission
fluid). I dollyed a 5,000 lbs Lincoln through the mountains of PA and
MD with my F150.
