Golf cart and trailer? Worth the investment?

I'm looking to buy a golf cart and trailer to pull behind my TT. My question is is it worth the money? Can I bring it to get around campgrounds or are they prohibited? We are planning on a trip to Florida this fall and plan on staying at Fort Wilderness. I know they allow them but what about the majority of other campgrounds?

Its very common in Louisiana. I have several friends that pull doubles with either golf carts on trailers or boats.

Well renting at the Fort is now up to $65 bucks a day, so weight that cost in your decision.

Many of the true RV parks and state lakes in my area allow them. I can't think of any in my area of nebraska actually that don't allow them.

Only real issue you may have is that's a fair amount of weight behind a travel trailer... I pull a jet ski behind mine but it doesn't weigh much... just a thought... not saying it can't be done!

I love my cart. Great to have in the Northeast for taking the kids to the pool or lake and for grabbing ice and such from the store. I put my cart in the back of the pickup.

It is illegal to double tow in Florida.

As stated in an earlier post it is illegal to pull doubles in Florida, and dont believe those who tell you different and that you can get away with it. It is getting more and more attention and the leo's are getting less tolerant of those that attempt to do it.

As far as having a golf cart , I love having mine with me, gets me out alot more than I do if I don't have it, they are great conversation starters with some modifications, ie. lift kits etc.

Fortunately I have a toy hauler so I do not face the issue of taking it with me that those with regular trailers do. It was one of the reasons we went toy hauler,it was that important.
