350 XL question on Golf Cart and Flat Towing

Happy January to you all.....


As we have a winter spot in Florida now we bought a golf cart this year. The issue is now I have a jeep to flat tow home with the golf cart. I've seen the lifts in the coach resort that bolt onto the back of your coach that allow you to carry your golf cart and then attach the flat tow vehicle to that. Anyone have any experience with this? Any advice would be very helpful..


Thanks,

Happy Campers

Joe

tetonpizza........

Most (maybe all) of the Georgetown line are equipped with a 5000lb rated hitch.
That's the limit for towing.....dolly, misc toys, trailer or whatever.

The lifts that you mention you've seen on the back of other coaches, were probably on the back of diesel rigs........equipped with a much more robust hitch...maybe even 10,000lb.

I think you're looking at too many toys for your Georgetown, but let's see what others say.

There was someone on here that was a welder and he beefed up his hitch and frame on the back of his MH and upgraded it to (I believe) to a class IV or V. Can't remember the title or who it was. If you know a welder maybe he can make suggestions and also I would call FR and see if you beef it up would that void anything.

That was me,.I had a class 4 hitch installed to increase my tongue weight capability to 1000 lbs...to carry a pair of scooters. I would note that both the car tow and the golf cart add tongue weight and tongue weight must be added to both coach weight and rear axle weight limits. I am not aware of any hitch based system that would allow both the cart rack and car tow capability. Versa Lift makes a welded on system that is not hitch based but is mostly used on diesel pushers which could handle both the cart and allow for a tow...IF your weight is within capacity limits.
