I would still be within my weight limit. The problem with that lies in my topper...

I saw a rack mounted over top of the CAB of a truck out in the parking lot for an RV show in Northern Virginia 2 years ago. We didn't see what they haul up there nor how in the world they got it up there (looooooooooooooooong ramps!). But, it definitely stuck in my head.

We bought our cart before we ever bought our first camper. We used to either tent camp, or rent a cabin at our resort, but the cabin rental started getting expensive, and more of a hassle than tent camping. We bought our first camper used, and it was not in the greatest shape, but we parked it on a seasonal site, so it didn't matter, since we didn't plan to tow it anywhere. When we bought the new camper, we opted for a toy hauler so we could be mobile, and still take the cart with us. Plus it makes a nice place to keep the cart out of the elements during the winter. The cart is well worth the investment, as far as towing options, I don't know that I can offer much, other than to suggest a toy hauler, but it sounds like that is not an option either, since you already have your camper.

I have thought about removing the top and selling it and carry the cart in the back of the truck. But I like the looks or that HD cover. What kinda price is on that thing?

Not sure if you realize it or not? Your cart would not fit in the back of your short bed truck without the tailgate down. Before you go that route and sell your cap, make sure you can turn without the tailgate hitting the trailer jack.

I have about 6" to spare with the gate closed in the long bed with my cart. My buddy has the 5.5' bed on his Dodge Ram and hauls his cart with the gate opened, he had to cut and move the propane tanks back and switched to the 20# bottles. He also made a mount for a removable hitch jack welded to the frame. Works well for him so it is "do-able" with the short bed with MODS.

On a much smaller note then actually getting the cart there, last week while camping I noticed they were asking for proof of insurance on the golf cart! Not sure if that applies most places or not.

Have to admit I was quite jealous of the tricked out carts cruisin around while I drove our rental! Haha!
