Golf cart

I guys, I was wondering if any of you use a golf cart with your motorhome and if so how do you get it around? I've been looking at three options, option one: hydraulic lift,option 2 : open trailer, option: 3 enclosed cargo trailer any thoughts?

I tow my Tiki Kart behind my 5er in an open trailer. I want an enclosed trailer, but they cost almost 3 times what I paid for the cart. The other problem is because I have a lift on my cart, it is too tall for your standard trailer and you need a specially built one for the height. I found a good used one for 4800.00, If I had the money I would buy it tomorrow.

Russell I'm exploring that issue right now. I have ruled out the lift as to heavy and adding needless weight. I looked at trailers but just hate to have another thing to deal with. What is most promising right now is a product from Overbuilt in NY that is a flat platform that hooks onto the hitch,well a new hitch is added and it's a 3 receiver hitch. ATV Carrier for RV | RV ATV Carrier | Motorhome ATV Carrier | Electric ATV Carrier | ATV Lift
It holds 800 lbs and can tow 6000 lbs behind it. Let me know what you think or if you see something that works better. I'm close to ordering this.

I thought about using the pick up truck as a toad and keeping the golf cart in the bed. Blue ox also makes one of those platforms for the back of a mh that holds 1000 pounds. i'm just worried about adding all that tail weight and length

I will look at the Blue Ox. I worry about the weight also so I sold our Buick Enclave and bought a Wrangler. Wow what a difference. The Wrangler is nice but I'm really going to miss my Enclave. Any way I hope that it works ok. I'm still considering it

CAT that is correct. I do believe I can pull my toad with the trailer & golf cart. I would be within my weight limit and max length for LA at least. I just haven't gotten up the nerve to try it yet.

There are only a few campgrounds that we go to that still allow golf carts, they are fairly close to my home and if we want to bring both usually one of my kids hauls my golf and trailer.

Thanks Cajun. Should work especially on short distance

I'm thinking about something like this. (If picture loads ). I think this one was home built. I don't like the car dolly. Although I have one I use occasionally. Click image for larger version
