Golf cart lift/rack

What kind of set ups do people use to take a golf cart and flat tow a jeep? (Besides double hitched or putting the golf cart in the toad).

Jeff,

You might check this out:
ATV Carrier for RV | RV ATV Carrier | Motorhome ATV Carrier | Electric ATV Carrier | ATV Lift

It states it is available with a receiver rated to tow up to 6000 lb vehicle 4 down behind.

Here is another one to check out:

Hydra-lift is another, and IMHO, the best lift choice, while retaining up to 8000# tow capacity. Probably between $6000-7000 solution, but very well thought of by dealers and customers.

I did see one several years ago that was a solid hookup to the rear of the coach with 1 rear swiveling tire and a deck carrying a golf cart and pulling a mid size car behind it. It was made commercially, but do not have the name of it or a picture. They are still made because I did see one just like it behind a fifth wheel last winter. It was essentially a one wheeled trailer with a solid hookup to the coach. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

My uncle in law has one that is a golf cart platform mounted to three points on the rear of the tag axle dynasty. It has a receiver off it for his truck (flat towed). Seems like a lot of leverage off the back that takes load off the front. I did see a PDF on here about calculating the weight. I have a street legal golf cart I'd love to take with the jeep GC. His solution is convenient because it extends his length but you don't have to move anything around when you land at the GC. Might be safer just to sell the golf cart;(.

This is a valid concern. The combined weight of a lift and golf cart is not insignificant. All of that weight will be acting on the coach well behind the rear wheels. It will tend to make the motorhome act like a lever taking some weight off of the front wheels, and the rear wheels will get all of the weight of the lift and cart plus the weight transferred from the front wheels. It will be very easy to overload the rear axle.

The OP has a tag axle, so maybe he has the available axle capacity. But it's something to look into. Find out the weight of the lift and the golf cart, and make sure you have more rear axle capacity than that left. Also, total up the weight of the coach, lift, cart, and toad and compare that to the GCWR. The numbers may work out for a big coach with a tag axle, but I know I would never be able to get away with it on mine.

Jeff, I have a Hydrolift on my Beaver Contessa TAG. I use it for bringing a bagger Harley along with towing Jeep or boat at same time. We bought a tag axle coach especially for this reason so as not to overload the coach. Works great and will handle a golf cart with the correct platform. Coach rides stable.

Feel this is the good choice.
