Can I Tow a Truck With a Car Dolly?

Towing a truck with a car dolly is possible, but it requires an experienced operator and specialized equipment. A car dolly is a trailer-like device that is attached to the back of a tow vehicle, such as an SUV or pickup truck.

The car dolly allows the towing vehicle to pull a car, truck, or other vehicle without having to use a traditional tow bar or hookup.

When using a car dolly to tow a truck, the operator must make sure the equipment is properly secured and that all safety protocols are followed. It’s important to ensure the dolly has enough capacity to support the weight of the truck being towed. Additionally, the driver should make sure that there’s enough clearance between the two vehicles, so as not to cause any damage.

It’s also important for operators to understand that when using a car dolly for this purpose, they should never exceed the speed limit and should always use caution when driving. Additionally, it’s important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for pedestrians and other vehicles on the road.


In conclusion, it is possible to tow a truck with a car dolly if all safety protocols are followed and enough capacity is available on the device. However, it’s best left in the hands of experienced operators who understand how to properly secure and transport heavy loads.
