I towed small cars with my VW Passat. I used a tow dolly which only has the front wheels on it. That makes the weight difference. The car could weight 2500 lbs but on the dolly is a lot lighter. I presume that is what Tony is referring .AlH said:Tony- You didn't say what year but the current Civic weighs about 2500 lbs!
Looking at the factory trailer add-on harness it has no brake wiring. Seems odd that Honda wants brakes even on relatively light trailers but doesn't have the wiring in the kit For a few dollars extra they could have made a real PITA easy.dsmith said:FSDO,
I'm curius if they have to run wires to the back for the controller or if they tap into existing connections of some sort.
I may be missing something, but I really don't understand how using a tow dolly will make a car lighter. The front wheels are on the dolly, the back wheels are on the ground. Instead of having the four car wheels on the ground behind the truck, there is now the tow dolly wheels, holding the front wheels of the car and the back wheels on the ground/. Isn't this adding the weight of the tow dolly instead of taking weight away?I used a tow dolly which only has the front wheels on it. That makes the weight difference.
