When towing your vehicle with a tow bar, all 4 wheels are in contact with the ground. Certain vehicles - namely, those with front-wheel-drive automatic transmissions - require either a transmission lube pump system or a driveshaft disconnect when being flat towed. Using a tow dolly eliminates the need for those by lifting your vehicle's front wheels off the road. In addition, using a dolly eliminates the need for base plates that clutter the front of your towed car, difficult-to-install wiring, and a potentially expensive supplemental braking system. Also, if you want to tow multiple vehicles, this dolly is a great alternative to traditional flat towing because you don't have to purchase and install brackets and wiring for all of your cars.


Space Saving Kar Kaddy SS

Kar Kaddy SS Folded

The folding design of the Kar Kaddy SS allows you to save space in your garage and at your campsite. The tilting ramps and swing-away tongue each stow compactly against the dolly for an overall folded length of just 67". This maximizes space around the tow dolly when it's stored and reduces tripping hazards.


Hydraulic Disc Brake System

Kar Kaddy SS Disc Brakes

The integrated hydraulic braking system features Demco's eZ-Latch surge coupler and disc brakes for safe stopping of your towed vehicle. When the eZ-Latch coupler latch is in the closed position, drop the coupler over the hitch ball and the latch will snap into place. No need to pull the latch up to open the ball socket. The drop that's built into the coupler helps you match your tow vehicle height, and the included breakaway lever activates the tow dolly's brakes should it disconnect from your RV. All hydraulic lines and fittings come pre-installed with the hoses run through the frame.


Kar Kaddy SS Disc Brakes

Disc brakes provide more consistent stopping power and a shorter stopping distance than drum brakes for safer transport of your vehicle. When you apply the brakes in your motorhome, deceleration will occur and momentum will push the dolly toward the rear of your RV. This applies force to the surge coupler's master cylinder, which sends hydraulic fluid through the lines to engage the brakes. This design ensures that the dolly brakes proportionately to your motorhome, which helps to eliminate wear and tear on your RV's brakes. And, because the brakes don't require an electrical signal, an electric brake controller is not needed.


Wheeled Tongue Jack

Kar Kaddy SS Jack

The wheeled jack lets you easily move the dolly toward your hitch for coupling and then conveniently swings up and locks into place alongside the trailer tongue for travel. Drop the jack back down and roll the dolly out of the way when you're done towing.


Setup and Use

Kar Kaddy SS Assembly

The main components of the Kar Kaddy SS come pre-assembled for fast setup. Use the included instructions and hardware to attach the main frame to the tongue assembly, then install the ramps, fenders, mud flaps, and wheels. Finally, connect the pre-routed wiring.


Prior to towing, bleed the hydraulic system to remove any air from the brake fluid reservoir. Brake fluid is not included.


Kar Kaddy SS Tire Nets

The textured ramps allow for safe loading of your vehicle onto the integrated wheel platforms. Once your towed car is in place, drape 1 tie-down strap over each front tire. Secure the straps to the platforms, and then use the tie-down winches to easily tighten the straps around the wheels. Attach the included safety chains to your vehicle's frame and you're ready to set out.


Included tie-down straps fit most standard automotive tires. Straps for large (DM03528-93) or small (DM03528-81) tires are sold separately.


Built for Highway Use

Hit the highway in the quality, well-engineered Kar Kaddy SS. The steerable axle allows the tow dolly to track directly behind your RV, preventing sliding and binding of the tires. The dolly's radial tires create less rolling resistance and heat buildup than bias ply tires, resulting in longer tread life and improved steering at higher speeds. This makes radial tires ideal for highway use.


Kar Kaddy SS Lighting Package

The full LED lighting package is DOT compliant for safe towing. Brake, tail, and turn signal lights, front fender marker lights, and license plate marker lights are included to increase visibility on the road.


The galvanized finish resists rust and chipping. And mud flaps and rustproof polyethylene fenders protect your vehicle from flying road debris.

This is one of the worst companies I have dealt with. I ordered a Demco Kar Kaddy SS and it was delivered June 16. The package was damaged and the ramps and structural support bars were laying on top of the outside of the box. There was no hardware at all enclosed with the unit. I called and told them we were missing all the hardware and they promised they would ship immediately and we'd have it the next day so we could put it together and leave on our planned trip. Box showed up two or three days later and they sent us another set of fenders and no hardware. Had to postpone our trip. Called again and told them we were still missing hardware. Again, we were assured they'd send out that day for overnight delivery. Three days later we get the hardware. Go to assemble the unit and there is brake fluid all over the floor. The brake line connection to the reservoir must have gotten broken off during shipping so another no-go issue. Called them and told them to come get it and refund our money. What a screwed up company.



by:

Have put 10k miles on it. Has performed well. Ordered replacement winch from Demco and it was covered under warranty.



by:

Another GREAT experience with eTrailer!!!! They either quickly deliver a high quality product for a reasonable price, or they correct any error whether theirs or their provider’s without hesitation. In particular, Tanith and William E., as well as another young lady helped me navigate missing documents and a label damaged by a shipping company as quickly as I could hope for. Thanks again folks!



by:

Pretty easy to use except for the ramps that suck. Almost impossible to use and align.
Delivery took forever and when it did arrive the box was destroyed and had to straighten a number of parts and wait a couple more weeks until they got me the hardware that had fallen out of the box.



by:

The Kaddy preformed as advertised. The construction material and the wiring was of good quality. The instructions for the assembly were written professionally and provided photos and sketches where needed.



by:

The only reason I am giving this 3 stars.
Being life has come up over the past year, we haven't gotten a chance to use it yet, except for a test drive around the neighborhood
Assembly was not very difficult, if that helps, and construction seems very good



by:

Well made sturdy product. Need two people to put it together with two jacks or a jack and blocking.



by:

We have used it three times now with good results. I like the steering axle. It really helps on tight turns. The assembly went well. I did it alone but a helper would be nice.



by:

Awesome tow dolly. Works just as expected.

Dolly worked perfect towing a 2019 Colorado From Upstate New York to Tampa Florida.

  • Towing 2018 Buick Enclave on Tow Dolly
    Once the battery is unhooked, it's definitely possible that you'll need to reset the stored information such as radio settings and clocks, etc. This being said, I am puzzled by the part of the procedure where Buick states to open the hood, then wait two minutes before detaching the negative battery terminal. It makes me wonder if there's maybe a capacitor that saves those settings for you. I searched online for quite a bit and wasn't able to find an explanation, so you might want to check...

    I reached out to my contact at Demco and you can absolutely tow your Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly # DM9713045 without a vehicle on it but there are a few things you will need to do differently. First instead of removing the pin to allow the dolly to self steer you will need to leave the pin installed. Next you will need to keep to a speed of 55 MPH max. Lastly you will need to air the tires down to around 20 PSI to keep the dolly from bouncing uncontrollably. You may need to go a bit lower...
