Golf cart in bed of toad

Thinking of putting a golf cart in the bed of my F-150 that I pull behind my MH. Wondering if anyone has any experience with this and could give me any advice. I've seen some going down the road and could see that it could be pretty handy at the campground

Just be sure your RV, tow bar, and toad are up to the extra weight. Of course you'll have auxiliary braking for the toad so it doesn't push you down the road!

I have towed a Colorado & a Sierra with the cart in the bed. I cut a 3/4" piece of plywood to fit, to spread the weight over the whole bed and to take the weight off the tail gate. I also screwed 2x4s the length of the plywood between the cart wheels to stiffen the plywood. I have done this 1500 miles each way for 8 years without a problem.

You might want to look at D&G tail gate supports it looks like the simplest answer to the golf cart loading problem.

Tailgate supports - DG Manufacturing. Tailgate Support Bars

I see you have an Anthem, we have an Entegra Aspire. We tow a 3/4 ton Chevy with a Harley Davidson in the bed with no problems. I believe you have a 10,000# hitch. Put your golf cart in the bed of your truck & take it to a truck stop & put it on the scale. Check & see if your tow bar is rated for the weight. Enjoy.

I load my golf cart in my F150 all the time (with heavy duty ramps) along with plywood on the floor to help distribute the weight off the tailgate. seems to work out well with the exception I have noticed inside and outside tire wear, may not be because of golf cart but not sure.
