Tow Dollys Again...

I am wondering about GVW for vehicles to be towed via a tow dolly. I am looking at a used dolly in good condition that can carry 3750 Lbs. The vehicle I want to tow is 5,000lbs. Because the dolly is only holding the front wheels, do I just figure 1/2 the GVW weight?

Hi Dave_M, I'd call the dolly mfg. and see what they say, as John says I don't think you can just half the weight, you could go weigh the front axle of the vehicle and go from there. Good luck :)
