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.


Tilting Bed Frame

Demco Tow Dolly Tilting Bed Frame

The tilting bed frame makes loading and unloading your vehicle a breeze. Pull the latch handle on the dolly's tongue toward the coupler to drop the bed frame. This will angle the loading ramps down to make it easy to drive your car onto the dolly. Once your car is properly loaded, the weight of your vehicle on the dolly will automatically reengage the latch on the tongue assembly and return the platform to a locked, level alignment. There's no need to manually relatch the bed after loading your vehicle. After unloading your vehicle, realign the platform by simply stepping down on the tongue until it latches into place.


Hydraulic Disc Brake System

Hydraulic Disc Brake System

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.


Demco Tow Dolly 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.


Setup and Use

The main components of the Kar Kaddy X 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.


Demco Tow Dolly Wheel 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 X. 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.


Demco Tow Dolly Lighting Package

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


The galvanized ramps and black powder coated components resist rust and chipping. And rustproof polyethylene fenders protect your vehicle from flying road debris.

by:

After I finally received tow dolly,crate/packaging was destroyed. I thought things were OK, but it turns out the brake coupler where tongue meets frame was all bent up and I was not really able to make the coupling to have a operable tow dolly. I went around with etrailer support and was finally referenced to go to Demco for help. Democo sent out a new coupler. But I have to pull brake line in tongue to attach female couple end. After getting new coupler added I will have to do a full brake bleed.

Needless to say I will not be recommending buying this tow dolly from Etrailer.


Comments
I sincerely apologize for the experience that you had with us. This is the typical experience that we want to provide. I have sent this to my customer service team for review.

I think it is a great tow dolly, however I did have an incident 6/2021 while crossing Pennsylvania on the interstate between Wisconsin and New York, my passenger side, dolly tail light disappeared. Evidently a bump or pothole must have popped the tail light out of its socket and bouncing pulled loose connectors. It was there at the west side of the state, but gone by the time we got to New York. Not the best interstate I've ever been on!


Comments
It sounds like it was a rough interstate. We do have the replacement tail light for the tow dolly. It is part # DM45MV

Unit worked great - Instructions to put unit together were less than helpful - I'm not sure if the average person could have done it??

Need more detail!!!




by:

I put it all together today, you do have to be a little mechanical to do it, don't put the tires on until the fenders are on, just a little extra work, other than that it's very well built.




by:

Not that easy to put together, parts are very heavy. Instructions not real clear. On the plus side it is very sturdy much better than my previous dolly. More conveniences than other dollies I have used. I just need to figure out how to bleed the brakes, I have not seen any info on that.




by:

Easy to assemble, easy to load and unload. Great product and great customer service.




by:

So far a very nice trailer and good looking. My Volvo V60 wagon fit nice. No slapping underneath




by:

After getting shipping details staightened out which etrailer did product is well built heavy duty. Wont put together until i get back from vacation very happy so far.will finish with pics after vacation




by:

Appears to be a great product, but assembly IS required. Assembly instructions are not intuitive.




by:

There are two aluminum threaded chunks that the two arm braces bolt to the tounge. these need to be changed to steel threaded chunks with some type of locking measures because we all know that aluminum will not hold these bolts in because of the viberation of the dolly. One of mine fell out within the first 5 miles and the other was loose when I noticed it.




by:

I ordered this trailer on Monday and it arrived on Friday. The quality is incredible. I assembled it by myself without any issues. We towed our Corolla around the Texas Hill Country this weekend and it worked perfectly. Thanks




by:

Was missing a few bolts that I was able to get at local hardware store. Directions could have been clearer. Other than that, perfectly satisfied with purchase.




by:

It was hard to put together but a great product.

  • How Could 2012 Jeep Wrangler be Towed with Tow Dolly
    Your 2012 Jeep Wrangler can be towed with all four wheels down but if you wanted to tow it on a tow dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy part # DM9713093 you'd have to install a driveshaft disconnect for the rear axle. We do not offer driveshaft disconnects.

  • Maximum Width Vehicle For Demco Kar Kaddy X
    The Demco Kar Kaddy X # DM9713093 is compatible with vehicles that have tread width between 42" and 78" wide, so you'll want to measure your vehicle from the outside of one tire to the outside of the other in order to determine if this tow dolly will work for your 2018 Honda Fit EX L. From what I'm able to find the Honda Fit is around 67" wide, but I recommend that you verify this independently.

  • Can the 2017 Ford Escape Be Flat Towed Behind an RV
    The Blue Ox # BX2667 base plates are designed to fit on the 2015-18 Ford Edge, but not the Ford Escape. From what I was able to determine from my research, the 2017 Ford Escape is not able to be flat towed behind a motorhome/RV. For this reason, you will need to tow it with a tow dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes # DM9713093. Towing your Escape with 4 wheels down can damage the transmission on your vehicle, so using a tow dolly is the only available solution.

  • Tow Dolly That Has Capacity for Weight of 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
    I looked up the weight of your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and found it to be 4,330 lbs so our tow dollies like the Demco Kar Kaddy # DM9713093 would work great. This one has a 4,800 lb capacity and comes with surge disc brakes. We don't have anything that would also accommodate the additional weight of a 1,000 lb motorcycle though.

  • Can A 2006 Chevy TrailBlazer Be Dolly Towed
    Yes, the 2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer can be towed on a dolly. If you have a four wheel drive model then you will need to lift the front wheels. If you have a two wheel drive model then you will need to lift the rear wheels. If you have an all wheel drive model then you cannot dolly tow. The best tow dolly we have for this vehicle is the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly part # DM9713093 due to both wheel size and weight constraints.

  • Recommended Tow Dolly for 2019 Acura MDX
    Actually, instead of the GVWR of the 2019 MDX, you'll want to refer to the curb weight of the vehicle; this measurement is going to be the weight of the vehicle without luggage or passengers, which is how the vehicle would be towed. According to my research, the curb weight of the 2019 Acura MDX is at most 4300-lbs. This means that you can use a tow dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy X # DM9713093 since the weight of your vehicle will be under 4800-lbs when towed. The Kar Kaddy X is designed...

    For your 2018 Volkswagen Beetle I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly w/ Disc Brakes # DM9713093 which is designed for vehicles with a tread width of 42"-78", and since your Beetle has a 72" tread width, it will fit perfectly. The Demco # DM9713093 uses hydraulic disc brakes for increased braking power, and since it uses hydraulic brakes you will not need a trailer brake controller as the braking is controlled by the surge brake actuator on the coupler of the dolly.
