Electric Scooters while RVing?

So DS been asking for a scooter (Electric) while camping. I quickly ruled out gas and propane since most RV parks don't allow them and don't want to contribute to the noise neighbor camper.

I have looked at a few electric ones online to get for the DS, who is 16.

I don't want to spend a mint so cost and reliability are in my priorities.

Anyone else have experience with electric scooters?

Some places prohibit all scooters, not just gas. Something to think about too.

The DS and DD have these other scooters that I got for them sometime ago. They have served them very well, me too when I just need to go get ice and the RV store. So far we never had a issue with them and places
we stayed at over the years. But agree I have seen some online rules which would not allow scooters.

What about riding ice chests?

Segway has been making off-road capable transportation for awhile now. Very proven design.

To tuffr2: Some people don't have the ability to walk or ride a bicycle. Before you make such a statement, run such comments through your brain's built-in filter.

Found this a while back. It comes in both gas and electric. The electric one would be quite handy.
