Alternative towing system

Anyone see a problem with the system is have drawn aside from dodgy drawing. I know it all has to be braked and I have an idea on that . But will it fall off at the first corner?

Going round corners for a starter

And I expect the rear wheels, being attached to inflated rubber tyres won't stay entirely straight, so I'd be incredibly surprised if it tows straight

Don't want to sound rude, but that would be like towing a heavy supermarket trolley.

i have done extensive research into tow dollies having used them for years , they are effectively banned , your design would be illegal to use on the road for various reasons, the dolly wheels all need to be braked, even without the rear dolly and using a standard 2 wheel dolly at the front you can only use to transport a broken down car to a place of safety.
you wont see any reputable recovery company using dollys any more, even the aa systems you see are attached to the van and not stand along dollys.

Spend 300 on a scruffy caravan based trailer

Sorry, but I doubt it would make it to the bottom of your road without incident

The rear dollies are currently available for use with a spec lift so there's no reason why it won't work for a towed dolly but as said, all the wheels will need to be braked and since overrun brakes for 'trailers with axles more than 1000mm apart' have been outlawed, you'll need some sort of electronic/electric brake operated by the tow vehicle....... Just buy a trailer.
