The trailer brake requirement would be for both the weight of the trailer and the car attached to it combined. That is what you would have to check on the regs. So if the trailer is rated at 3k, that might be fine, but if you put more weight on it it might exceed the brake rating.


MTO Regs state this:
Trailer or semi-trailer - Every trailer or semi-trailer having a gross weight of 1,360 kilograms (3,000 Ibs) or more shall be equipped with brakes adequate to stop and to hold the vehicle.


MTO Drivers hand Book has this:
If your trailer has a gross trailer weight, vehicle and load of 1,360 kilograms (2998.3 lbs) or more, it must have brakes strong enough to stop and hold the trailer.


Still unclear. The fact that the dolly picks up only half the weight of the car muddys the waters somewhat. The fact that this trailer has a GV of 3000 and the regs say 3000 or more require brakes means this trailer should have brakes as per Ontario regs.
Should be exploring other options I think.

Had not even considered this. Has to be the most stable way to go. Wonder if costs are prohibitive, worth some research.

Just a FYI, when I moved cross country in 1991 I had a Ryder 20 ft truck and a dolly for a car. The dolly didn't have brakes, and it was from rental company who knew exactly what I was putting on it. Granted this was lower 48, but still a move from California to Maine!

I would suggest you take a look at this guide http://webcontent.goodsam.com/motorh...inghyGuide.pdf

A quick look at it shows his vehicle should be towable if it has a manual transmission. If it is an auto then you will need to look at a trailer or dolly. If you go the dolly route I would opt for a larger dolly WITH brakes. This will insure that you are safe and LEGAL no matter where you tow it.

Good link diesail! I looked at it and if the Hundai is auto tranny, then they all say NO for flat tow!

This rating for the dolly is a bit confusing, GVWR would be if you weighed the dolly and the front axle weight of the towed vehicle combined. GCVWR would be the total weight of the dolly and the total weight of the towed vehicle combined. I would think that there should be both numbers for the dolly available, otherwise you could put any weight vehicle on the dolly, as long as the front axle weight of the vehicle didnt exceed the GVWR.

"as long as the front axle weight of the vehicle didnt exceed the GVWR.
minus the weight of the dolly
