Hello! We're new here and looking forward to getting to know everyone! 'We' are Linda and Rick, we live in Maryland and have been RVing for about 5 years. We started out with a pop-up, decided that was way too much work and moved into an Outback side load toy hauler. We're now trading that in for a rear load toy hauler that has a lot more room to move around in to make it even more enjoyable!
Rick has a question so I guess I'll just ask it here. If there is a better spot to ask just me know. We're also buying a golf cart and his concern is will we have any problems with the roof hitting when the cart makes the transition from the ramp to the inside of trailer. The cart is 70", we believe the clearance in the trailer is about 72". There's a slight dip from the ramp and we're thinking it will be OK but wanted to know anyone's opinion. The toy hauler we've purchased is a Rubicon 2500.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Linda & Rick

Welcome to iRV2.

I can't provide any info on the clearance issue , but would ask if the cart is stock height or modified, with over size tires ?
On my golf cart the top is higher at the rear than the front, a sloped top may help or hinder the entry into the hauler. There is a possibility that only trying to get the cart in will tell.

It will depend upon the angle the door makes with the floor and the clearance of the golf cart.

IMO the golf cart has significant clearance and will clear the floor.

If not shim the door on the ground to reduce the angle.

Depending on you golf cart brand, it may be an easy task to remove the top for transport.
My Yamaha would be a chore , but the Ez-Go's I've looked at here in the park , look like 8 bolts and about 15 mins. to remove.
