campground "run-a-bout"?

I have a Forest River 21fbrs, towed with a Yukon Denali.
My wife (who suffers from C.O.P.D.) and I like to "explore" our surroundings, but we have no way to haul a golf cart, her pedaling a bicycle is out of the question and next to zero walking. Plus we only have the trailers' rear bumper to attach a vehicle to....

What are some of the options we have for running around the campgrounds?
What have you used or seen? I would prefer something for two people and electric....but am open for any suggestions!

Seen electric scooters and even bikes that had an electric motor on them, like a moped but electric.

A couple who camp with us in which one has MS. They take a motorized 4 wheel scooter with them and it fits nicely in the back of their Ford Escape along with gear. They fold up fairly flat! They weight anywhere from 100pds and up so it can require some help or careful thinking loading and unloading.

You aren't able to attach much to that bumper. This isn't a rant, but I would hate for you to lose something important for your wifes mobility to be lost.

Good luck

I will sell both for $1200.00. Both received all new interstate batteries in late fall.

They are fun...

There are all sorts of little scooter like things. I think my favorite was watching someone drive around on a cooler.

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

We use a GO-GO for my wife. It folds up and can be transported in a trunk of a car.
Check out pride mobility.
