Homebrew, we were just wondering. We were thinking out loud. We want to haul our gas golf cart though.

Every campground we've been to that allows carts does not allow gas carts. I have seen a few at Fort Wilderness but they're technically not allowed.

Oh hell yeah it will go up on its own. I've done a lot of stupid stuff on a gas cart. They go up much steeper stuff than that ramp! I can't help the urge but to act like a kid on anything like that, that's why I don't have one!

27 HFS electric cart no problem at all. I can't see a gas cart climbing the ramp that much differently. I do find that more and more campgrounds are not allowing golf carts. The gas more than electric.

The largest campground on the East Coast in Myrtle Beach SC, Ocean Lakes for one only allows electric carts. They are extremely strict about it, there are many small campgrounds as well. Proof of insurance is required and it is checked and no operators under the age of 16. If you don't show proof of insurance to them and register the cart it goes in storage / in your trailer or in their storage lot til you leave. Or you can rent one of theirs......

Its hard to find too many campgrounds that allow gas carts most do not.

No motorcycles in Ocean Lakes Campground either they either have to parked in a storage lot or towed to your campsite.

Very easy to use the front jack to Decrease the ramp angle! Now in regards to "Gas vs Elect." DB"s a Stock gas or elect. Both Meet the Standards set for Golf course's! Now if you Modify a Gas carts "Engine/Exhaust" system that is what brings the WRATH of RV parks NOT wanting gas golf carts! Now having said that we were at a RV park in VA.that posted "No Gas Golf Carts" but the OLD elect.carts "Rear end gear NOISE" was so Loud that you had to Stop talking as they went by! Youroo!!

My engine is stock and golf course quiet. It is lifted and is custom. I stay at state or county camp grounds. I cannot imagine allowing electric and not gas carts. It sure is quieter than driving the diesel dually around to sight see at and around parks. I never have thought about the the acceptance one or the other. Glad to know I need to pay attention.

That sucks about motorcycles. I guess I won't be staying there. My bike is no louder than some trucks. That's why I like state parks.

I have no facts about this opinion. But I always assumed Ocean Lakes did this to keep the Bike Week crowds out.
