Before you purchase something, check with the places you plan to camp. Some campgrounds ( especially fed and state) have restrictions on what you can use. ie ( Maryland State campgrounds prohibit golf carts as the paved roads are considered public roads)

The only advice I can give you for anything electric is depending on where you camp. My DW and I purchased two electric scooters and although they worked good on flat pavement. We do most of our camping in the mountains and they wouldn't pull any incline hardly at all so that's something to consider. However I'm shure it all depends on the power of the unit. Someone else might have more info on this then me. Good luck.

Our son, Chad, was killed by a drunk driver in 2008 !We cared for & loved his black lab, Pepper, until she went to live in heaven with her daddy in December 2014.

The Zappy is the way to go. Relatively inexpensive, and they run for quite a while on one charge. Friend of mine and his wife have one, and they love them.

Would a front-hitch on your vehicle and one of these work?

Now that thing is just way too cool.

Would be perfect for hauling my '84 y.o. father around, if we could a) afford one, and b) had that much available cargo capacity...

That's really just an excuse. I want one for ME!

A non-motorized scooter may be a good place to start. The Zippr is a seated scooter. You can get around at a walking pace without a lot of effort.

Thanks for all the feed back!
I'm leaning toward what "dblr" posted, about a Cricket SX-3 mini golf cart.
After looking at all the post on electric bikes, I found Ace Electric Motorbikes and it got my mouth watering for a reminiscent 1910 American Board Track Racer.
I can't afford a $4800 bicycle and leaving my wife at the campsite while I don my leather jacket, newsboy cap and googles, zipping around the campground! That would get REAL alimony alone....
I have to be more...more...."grown-up"?
Thanks again for all the input!
