I just bought an Acme EZE Tow. When it was delivered the brake fluid had all leaked out of the reservoir and removed the paint for about 6" on the trailer. Not a big deal but the reservoir does not screw down, it's just a rubber cap. In my opinion, it should be shipped without fluid as it's shipped vertically to save space.
The other thing you should know is that in my case my new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Mini van is so wide that there is only about 1-1.5" of clearance on either side of the wheels so the steering wheel cannot turn much as depicted in the videos but I don't see this as a problem.
I had a flat car hauler, a good one. But the van is so wide and low that I could not open any of the doors once loaded.
Combined with the fact that the car hauler weighed in at some 1800# and the EZE Tow was only 380# I had to make the move to keep the weight down as the van is nearly 5000# with my wheelchair and lift installed.
That being said, the EZE tow has good construction and I think is well worth the money.
Yes, check your straps after you tow a bit.
The new straps that are shipped with it and the extra safety chains they provide are nice too.
The EZE Tow is one of just a few dollies that I could find that would handle the weight of our van.
