Golf Cart in an XLR

We're planning to buy a 300x12 in the next 6+ months and haul a golf cart in it. My question is do I need a lifted cart to make it over the hump from ramp into the bay or will a stock suspension make it? Not a big deal I'm just curious. I'll be towing it with a Silverado 2500 with airbags so everything will be fairly level.

I believe it does. I neglected to look at that when we saw the one on the lot. Looking at the pics on line it appears that it does so I'm guessing my question may be a moot point. Thanks

It won't need to be a lifted cart (unless it is an excuse to do so)
My road king goes in just fine and it sits lower than a golf cart.

Thanks Bob. Maybe a small lift and some fat tires😊

We ride the same thing Bob. We got the same trailer too?

OP, enjoy your new trailer and be sure to post pics here when you pull the trigger...

My Street Glide goes right up and in over the beaver tail, and I think that's lower than a Road King or a golf cart. Wife's Sporty goes in no problem either.

I don't have that trailer, but we use my bike for test fits at the factory.

Be careful. A lifted golf cart may not fit under the beds when stored in the up position. My 2011 XLR 30 X 12 has a clearance of 78 inches. My STAR golf cart without lifts just barely fits. No problem with bottom clearance when loading. It does have a slight dovetail.
