No sway control is needed for a toad either towing 4 flat or on a dolly.

I will disagree. I have a light 18,000 lb coach with a 12.3' rear overhang with a wheel base of 15.8'. With 12,000 lbs on the rear and 6,000 on the front, over-steer is fact of life. With my Rampside on the MasterTow dolly, I could feel the dolly tug on the rear of the coach when negotiating a curve. It was especially noticeable on sharp on/off ramps and on rutted roads (Mississippi). I installed a UltraTrack rear track bar. Now the coach tracks well even when I am going a little too fast around a curve setting off the DW speed warning device.


Since the MaserTow dolly has surge brakes and only about 100 lbs tongue weight, there no tradition trailer sway caused by too little tongue weight.

Has Christmas come early?
