What is the Capacity Listed on Tow Dollies Referring To and How to Flat Tow a 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor


Are the weight limits on your trailer dollies based upon tongue weight or weight of entire trailer?


Expert Reply:

The weight listed on a trailer dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Foldable - 4,800 lbs # DM9713045 refers to the maximum vehicle curb weight that can be used on the dolly, so you would be able to use a vehicle with a curb weight under 4800-lbs. This is our largest dolly available and it looks like the 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor has a curb weight of between 5,508-lbs and 5,684-lbs, so this dolly would not be sufficient, but I do have a solution for you.

If you're looking to flat tow your F-150 Raptor behind an RV, we can help you find the parts needed to complete this; a complete flat towing setup for your 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor, including base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, supplemental braking and a high low adapter. I've listed the recommended parts for this setup below for you to easily find them.

Base Plates: Blue Ox Base Plates # BO74FR
Tow Bar: Blue Ox Avail # BX7420 (comes with safety cables integrated)
Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Flexo Coil Wiring with Diodes # RM-15267
Supplemental Braking: Demco SBS Stay In Play DUO # SM99251 (for hydraulic brakes) or # SM99243 (for air brakes)

You will need to measure to find the correct high/low adapter to ensure that your tow bar is level, so I've linked an article to this answer that explains how to do this, as well as a link to our entire selection of high/low adapters. I've also linked some helpful installation videos and instructions using similar vehicles that you may want to have a look at as well if you're planning on completing everything yourself.
