Just curious - you noted your original plan of putting a golf cart in the back of the truck turned out to not be do-able - why is that? (hopefully there's a video of me putting one in my 1500 attached to this)

Durango382 - really cool! Thanks for the video. Golf cart may end up being where we go after all. We were concerned that we would have to leave the tail gate down and also where to store the golf cart when not in use is a consideration. We will see .. right now, we are in the investigation stages of all options. Again, thanks!

I think you can see at the end of the video that the cart still hangs out past the bed. That's on the Ram short bed with regular cab. The tailgate then is left open - which for me is not an issue.
Be aware that not every state allows golf carts to be driven on public roadways - although I found that states that don't allow it often have ways around that, with a lane similar to a bike lane for them in places, or allowing them on sidewalks and such.

Unless things have changed in the last 10 months since we left and moved to AZ, you cannot drive Golf carts on most of California's streets, roads etc. unless it's in a community type thing that's gated etc. I have no idea on other states other than here in Lake Havasu City AZ. You can drive just about anything on the planet here.

I bought an Ezip 1000 off CraigsList for $100. It is like the one shown above. Make sure you get one with suspesion or you will riding on air pressure. It fold down and the seat comes off so I can store it under the MH so it's secure and out of the weather. I plug it in while it's in the compartment so I have a fully charged scooter when I arrive. It will last 2 days on a charge depending on the terrain and how fast I go.
It does take some getting used to (5 min) since the wheels are so small but it goes pretty fast and stops quickly. I do wear a helmet (I don't bounce as well as I used to)(well I guess I bounce better, I just don't recover as easily)

DebbieMH...

I think a scooter is a GREAT idea.. We have/had a Suzuki Burgman 400 and loved it. I've currently upgraded to a Harley..

Having the Burgman fit the bill, we could ride two-up (both of us together) exploring all of our destinations, it has a big enough trunk to fit groceries and it gets better than 50 mpg and it only weighs 400 pounds... Best of all, it was easy enough for me to drive and the GF too.. The learning curve was very easy..

It's got 400cc so you'll need a motorcycle license, which means it's legal on all roads, unlike a 50cc, which may have restrictions..

Check one out... They're great
