Hi Everyone!
Hope you are all having a great summer and getting in lots of camping time. The family and I have been doing quite a bit ourselves and thusly have decided to get some campground transportation as we are tired of renting on site. I know most folks go the golf cart route and I'm thinking that is what we will do too (alternative suggestions welcomed!). But the issue is how to transport it as we pull a travel trailer and I have a cap over the bed of my truck.
So once again, I'm turning to the experts to see if any of you have had a similar situation and how or if you were able to figure something out.
As always...thanks!!

We have a pair of E-Zip 750 electric scooters. 15 mph top speed, 10 mile range, removable seat, easily lifted by one man.

EDIT About $350 each at WalMart.com

Check the campground rules carefully, especially the ones you camp in frequently and would want to use a mobility device of some type.

Lots of campgrounds do not allow unlicensed vehicles of any kind unless there is a disability involved.

We use our feet. They are free, and are easy to transport to the campground.

With a Trailer and a shell over the bed of your truck, you are pretty limited to scooters or bicycles. But if you really want to get attention, maybe you could invest in on of these:



It's not a scooter and its not a golf cart, so there's probably no campground rules anywhere about using them!

We have a golf cart that we use at home but never take it camping. we each have a pedal bike. The bike is light, and doesn't cost anything to run.

We personally use bicycles and feet. One of our favorites don't allow carts. One we stopped going to, all the seasonal people have at least one. It gets crazy there.

We have no problem with the foot/pedal method as we have been doing that for years. We recently have been staying at much bigger campgrounds (Ft. Wilderness, for example) and the cart was a very convenient option.
Fully prepared to abandon the idea due to impracticality or lack of safety in transport. But I was curious to see what others have done.
Thanks to all who throw in the 'ol $.02

ALot of RV folks we know carry a couple of bicycles...

Also some campgrounds such as LAKEWOOD at Myrtle Beach rent golf carts...

We use our truck to get around in...
