Car Dolly for Windsport

I want a dolly to tow my 2011 Honda Civic behind my 2019 Windsport 29M.
Suggestions appreciated.
According to my manual it can't be towed as a 4 wheels down.

I've been very happy with our Master Tow dolly. We've been using it for three years, towing a Hyundai SantaFe behind two different class C's.

We've been very happy with our EZE Tow Dolly.

Been using it for four years, and have towed four different cars on it; all FWD: Focus Electric, Escape, C-Max, and Bolt.

Very happy with our American Car Dolly, great customer service free delivery, they mount brake controller on the dolly so don't have to do anything to motorhome just plug lights in.

Does your Civic have a locking steering wheel? The answer to that should be a consideration when selecting a dolly. If the steering wheel cannot be locked you may want to go with a fixed bed dolly. If the wheel can be locked or easily strapped down you may want to consider a rotating bed dolly. Rotating bed dollies require the steering wheel to be locked or strapped to prevent damage to the car when cornering.

I used a Master Tow with surge brakes for years and if I ever go back to a dolly it will be another Master Tow 80 with surge brakes.

Nothing beats a Demco KarKaddy SS. I've used the front seat belt to strap down steering wheels in 3 different cars with no problems.

We also use the Acme EZE-Tow dolly with surge brakes. We tow a 2014 Prius C and we can prevent the steering wheel from locking (necessary for fixed bed) with the ignition off. I just towed the car from Sacramento to Ft Bragg last weekend through the coastal mountains with no problems. IMHO, surge brakes are a must. They work well and you don’t need wires for electric brakes. In most states it is required to have supplemental braking for towed vehicles.

Also, the EZE-Tow will stand up vertically for storage. I put mine on furniture dollies and roll it into the side yard.

I can get my car on the dolly and ready to go almost as fast as when we flat towed our old Grand Vitara.

In addition to the tire straps, I also use a safety cable on each front tire.
