Continuing on with our search for a tow dolly—what are some good brands?
What features should we look for in a tow dolly?

We have a 2014Redhawk 26xs, and will be towing a compact car- Hyundai Elantra.

We’d like to keep the cost in the $1500-1700 range. We will buy new rather than usd.

Thanks again!

I’ve owned 2 Master Tow dollies and they worked very well. Mine had electric brakes.

Do a google search for American Tow Dolly. The last time I looked, it was less than $1500, and they deliver right to your door, unload it, unpack it, and show you how to use it.
Of course, the "best" is not inexpensive. IMO, that would be the
DEMCO Kar Kaddy II. The new price is between 4 and 5 grand, but IMO it is the BEST!

Ours is a MasterTow with electric brakes. We bought it used; the previous owner had switched out to bigger tires.

Towed our Elantra on a Demco that we bought used for about 2k with surge brakes. Tows extremely well and stores in small space.

I have been towing my KIA Sportage with a Road Master dolly with no problems. The dolly has electric brakes, which I like over surge brakes.

I use Master Tow with surge brakes. No electric hook-up. Easy.

I used a Stehl tow dolly for 3 years. It is one of the least expensive out there, but worked well for me. I had electric brakes on it, but didn't install a 12v battery for the breakaway switch. I put a connector on the car's battery and plugged the breakaway switch into the car's battery with an 8' cord when towing.
