Question How do you do it??

How do each of you get your golf cart AND a vehicle to your destinations? We currently have a 40' Diesel motorhome, and we can EITHER pull our Jeep Wrangler OR pull our 14' enclosed trailer with our golf cart. We'd love to be able to do BOTH, but the only option I see is to purchase a toy hauler motorhome OR find a truck to pull that has a big enough bed for the golf cart OR go to a fifth wheel toyhauler.

I'd love to hear how all of you accomplish both tasks!

Not sure how practical of an answer (or suggestion) this may be, but last year while traveling, I saw a MH pulling an auto trailer with a swing down frame/ cage arrangement where they had a BWM on the trailer (about the same size as a Jeep) and a Golf Cart on the second tier. I looked through my photo files thinking I had taken a picture but can't put my hands on it at the moment.

Last week we saw an enclosed trailer that put the car on the first level and the golf cart on a raised platform. Many have larger trucks as towds and put the cart in the truck bed. Our neighbor has a dolly from this company RV Towing Accessories | RV Trailers, Tow Behind Trailers, Motorcycle Trailers and Tow Dollies for sale that hauls his towd and golf cart. A google search will give you lots of hits for products designed to do what you want.

We've been wanting something that will haul our ATVs and a toad. Just started looking at double deck trailers (google search parameter) This Link is one example.

The top folds back and down to load and is raised either hydraulically or with an electric winch so you can load the car/jeep. The ones I'm looking at have an 82" height for the lower vehicle.

Swap the Jeep for a pickup. Put the golf cart on the pickup. The loss on the trade will probably be less than buying the trailer you need.

There are carriers you can mount to the rear of the MH that will allow you to hitch a toad as well, but by the time you put that much weight on the rear of your MH you will be over your axle and tire ratings unless you have a tag.

20' flat bed trailer with dual 3500 axles would be plenty and not put you over DOT length regs.

Question

Thank you for all the wonderful ideas! We've had a tow dolly before and didn't like it - as we much prefer towing "four down". We like the truck idea!!! What trucks are towable "four down" and would have a big enough truck bed to accomodate a fancy golf cart with big tires?

You will need to measure your wheel base and track (width) and take the measurements and a tape to a dealer. I have seen golf carts inside the bed of a pickup, but I have also seen them on platforms that sit above the box.

I drag a 4WD Suburban because it can be put into 4 wheel neutral and towed without modification. The Fords need a kit from the manufacturer and then can't be towed over 60 MPH, however there are some after market kits.

I don't know about the Dodge trucks, but here is a link to the guides published by Motorhome Magazine: Dinghy Towing and Dinghy Guide

You will probably need a long bed, and you may want a crew or extended cab truck.
