were to put golf cart?

We would like to purchase a golf cart to ride around in the campground. We have no way of hauling with the fifth wheel hitch. Do they make a system to mount on the back of the camper?

I wouldn't be as worried as much about the duble tow as I would the combined length law.
most states are around 65 feet and that pretty much takes care of most trucks and 5th wheel right there.
what state is in question ?

I saw a few of these on the road. Every one I saw was in the bed of the pickup and they were towing a travel trailer not a 5th wheel.

Like papap said, put it on a small trailer and hitch it to your fifth wheel. Either that or trade your fifth wheel in on a toyhauler.

Check out electric scooters. The ones that look kind of like a skateboard with a seat and handlebars. They fold up small and don't weigh much.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

Most Corp of Eng. campgrounds will not allow golf carts. You have to have a handicap placard and the camp host will still give you grief. Yet every 10 minutes they come by in a golf cart... go figure. It has been my experience that they look the other way for the electric scooters mentioned above, and they are fun to ride.

No we have friends with a blue one. It is a blast to ride. It probably goes 10 MPH, but feels like 40 because you are so close to the road. It will probably go 20 miles on a charge.
