Sorry fellas, so it is better to place the car on trailer with 4 wheels. I am a widow and want to travel. dont know anything about cars.

If towing a rear wheel drive vehicle, the safest way would be with a 4 wheel trailer. You will not have to remove the driveshaft nor worry about internal transmission problems. It is much easier to back up a 4 wheel trailer than a dolly if it is required as well. In some cases, using a dolly can cause damage to fenders as the dolly turns independant of its wheels

Can i tow my car from a uhaul truck saftey

If you mean; Can I tow a U Haul trailer with my car, then check the towing capacity of your model from the owners handbook. The general rule is not more than 2/3rds the vehicle weight for the trailer providing the trailer is braked. ie, If the car is 2000lbs then the all up trailer shouldn't be more than around 1200.
Alternatively, if you mean towing a car behind a rented truck then you will need the appropriate approved tow dolly and the renters permission. Make sure you are fully insured and competent to carry out such a task.

Can this car be towed with a car dolly? will the rear wheels 'freewheel', or do they need to be disengaged somehow?

most cars can be towed short distances(around 25-30 miles without damage in an emergency..but if the car is towed across country and it is all wheel drive, you need to put the entire car on a flatbed trailer..u-haul rents them..and they require a frame hitch to pull it..usually a stout truck or you can also rent one of their trucks to pull the trailer..

Towing car behind rv motorhome

Should be okay if you use a tow dolly. This means you drive the front wheels up on the tow dolly and strap the tires down. The rear wheels are like trailer tires and should roll as if they do when driven.

I need to find out how to tow a jeep grand cherokee limited with full time 4 wheel drive all 4 wheels down behind a motor home. I hope you can help me. Thank you

You can tow in with the transfer case in neutral as long as all 4 wheels are on the ground like with a tow bar.If you use a tow dolly you will have to remove the rear drive shaft.This transfer case has a viscous coupling that will over heat if all the wheel dont turn at the same rate.

Can I tow my 2002 grand caravan es on all 4 tires?

The answer is yes and no, but more no than yes. How far do you need to tow the vehicle? It is not recommended that any vehicle with automatic transmission be towed more than a few miles. With an auto transmission, towing without the engine running will not allow fluid to circulate throughout transmission, causing major damage to the gears in the transmission. If possible, use a tow dolly instead of towing on all four wheels.

Need to tow 1999 F250 about 150 miles home. What

If you have a stick shift, you rent a 2 wheel tow dolly and run the front tires onto it and strap it down. Put the truck in neutral and away you go.
If you have an Automatic you want all 4 wheels on a flatbed or tow trailer. You rent a car hauler trailer and piggyback the truck onto the trailer. A good rental will know the weight and rent you the right trailer.

Hello--- can I tow a 2000 AWD volvo wagon with a dolly? Thanks! order to tow you need rated tow-cable or shock absorbing chains or a tow hitch. you would also need hazard lights that also show which way the towed vehicle is turning (ppl cant see the towing car's turn signals) usually there are magetics ones that hook up to the towing cars trailer light system.
Safe towing by LAW is the issue here...could you tow it with a dolly...yes...but is it against the law..YES and the LAW protects you from hurting yourself,others, and property.
I hope this answers your question. and please be safe. (dont do it)
