Question Electric Scooter Recommendations?

I知 considering buying myself an electric scooter for cruising around campgrounds and such. I知 not referring to a four-wheeled mobility scooter, but rather a two-wheeled scooter similar to a Vespa, but with an electric motor. Any recommendations?

Craig

Anything's possible, but I'm struggling with the thought of somebody bothering a senior about the scooter he's riding.

A teenager circling the camp for hours on end might be another story....

Amazon has all types of scooters.
Do you want a stand up or sit down to ride?

scooters

While not a scooter but more of a motorcycle check out Zero's. Fast becoming an industry leader in electrics.

Sit down. As I said, something similar to a Vespa. I'll check out Amazon, thanks.

Just about everywhere I've ever visited. They frown on loud motorcycles and ATV's, but electric vehicles such as golf carts and scooters are widely accepted, but there's always that "one" camper who will complain regardless...

Thanks for the tip. Looking at their website, I'm now thinking an electric bike may be more practical. It would be easier to get in/out of the bed of my truck and I could pedal power it if I run out of juice.

check out saferwholesale.com, (they have a store in Michigan I think) But they do have some sweet deals on electric bicycles and scooters.

I use a LUGGIE that I saw on QVC. Try just LUGGIE in the search bar. The reason I like my LUGGIE is it folds up two ways and you can even put it in the front seat as long as you use seat belts LOL. It will work on most streets but we tried San Francisco----will not work. There are various videos that show how to load it in your car, one is a man whose legs must not work very well because at the end he puts his two canes back on. Good luck finding just what you need.

I would suggest trying a Pride mobility scooter. Got one for my mother who had serious walking problems. Great scooter. Almost indestructible.
