Some campgrounds in Ohio require insurance on the cart.
I got liability from Progressive for $75.00 / year.
Never know when the older boy will run into a truck or TT.

Link in my sig should have pics of my old setup with shortbed Chevy and golf cart. I would have to remove the tailgate and leave it home. I also bought a longer shank for an extra couple of inches of clearance. Never had any issues, but had to sell the cart when I got the fiver. Still crying over that, and still trying to come up with a way to get a cart down the road with me.

What manufacturer? Who sells them? Doesn't seem too bad if it well made and guaranteed.

Insurance for your cart is a good idea, required or not! Mine is $75 a year through Allstate.

You could go seasonal and golf cart your head off. You can ride around, go golfing, participate in golf cart parades, golf cart off-roadin', golf cart poker runs, etc. etc.
It's one of the benefits. When you do go away on a trip, it won't be that important because you'd have had your share of golf cartin'. Just my two cents on an advantage of seasonal camping.

Before you buy, make sure you know the rules at your favorite campgrounds.
I.e.; Ft wilderness and Ocean Lakes only allow electric carts, I've run across others as well. Almost all the campgrounds we go to with either of our carts require proof of insurance. To avoid any arguments I'll just say that liability insurance with your carrier shold be under 100.00 per year. Both our golf carts are gas powered. An electric cart can weigh up to 3-400 lbs more than a gas cart. A standard gas golf cart weighs in about 600 and 800 lbs.
We have a toy hauler the we bring the cart with us. I've only had one place in Galesburg, IL tell me that I cant take the cart out of the trailer, we wont go there anymore.

I didn't realize there was that much of a difference in weight. I knew the electric was heavier but didn't know buy as much as 300+. I would much rather have an electric for the noise level. I have 4 acres of land at home with quite a few local deer running around. ( I'm in the city limits so no hunting ). Last time I got a good count was 16. But there have been a few hit on the road plus a few births that I know of. Anyway back to subject. That is one of the main reasons for the quieter electric cart.

Here is a couple pics of one fawn that was camping out under my camper. This one couldn't have been many hours old at the time of the pic. She was still wet.

I go to Fort Wilderness 4 times a year as I live in the area and it's always a great time. I always see some big gas powered monsters being brought in by guests and have never heard/seen anyone told they couldn't. I bring my electric all the time and have never been asked for insurance; ever.

Unfortunately, for the longest time, it was the only campground we ever went to. When we finally went somewhere else it was a bit of a let down...
