If you are going to be towing a pickup then a dolly is pretty much out of the question (unless you want to tow it backwards and even that is only for 2wd pickups).

Flat or trailer are your best bets. A little more details may help: Do you already have the vehicle (if so what is it), or are you looking for one to tow?

wow a 66 Ford...cool.

Think I'd want that on a trailer; but yeah you'd have to store the trailer.

For us: We use a dolly simply because I can tow pretty much any FWD car without modifications to the car (have towed our Escape, our C-Max and getting ready to tow our new Bolt).

Iíve been dolly towing a Chrysler mini van. Florida to Washington, over the big horn mountains through Yellowstone and up to glacier national park. So far no problems with it other than the surge brakes over heating coming down off the big horns. Itís a 10 mile steep grade. No problems with parking yet. I did however book mostly pull throughs. Iíve got a couple of back in coming up, so we will see how that goes. Iíve not flat towed yet, it appears that it is easier to do but you are limited what you can tow. With a dolly pretty much any fwd can be towed.

I learned how to drive on a 1966 Ford pickup truck when I was 12 years old on my grandfathers farm. Had a 3 on the tree shifter. I loved that truck. I believe it had a 352ci V8 engine.

I tow my 1961 Rampside on a Master Tow dolly with no problems. Just make sure it is in neutral, the parking brake is off and wrap the shoulder harness around the steering wheel. The truck sits high enough that I can carry the spare on the dolly's tongue
