    Is there anyone out there who can give me a cost effective way to travel once you've parked your motorhome without unhooking and using it as your transportation? I have been looking at golf carts, folding 4 wheel bicycles, surrey bicycles, etc, but am afraid to take the plunge to buy one without asking others opinions. The last time we went on an extended trip, we rented a car, which was kind of expensive. Some of the campgrounds we've stayed in are huge and a 4 passenger cart of some kind would have been nice. We take our bicycles, but it's hard with preschool children to keep them up with the bigger kids. :(

    Most everyone who leases a site in our seasonal campground uses a golf cart. The campground charges extra if you have an electric cart and requires all drivers to have a driver's license.

    I agree with Becky ,, i have a golf cart also ,, it's electric ,,, but most CG's only allow electric carts of any kind ,,, u can pick one up pretty cheap ,, and fix it up u'r self ,,, if u like to mess with that kinda stuff ,,, that's what i did ,, only paid 300 bucks for mine ,, now has a lift kit ,, off road tires ,,, bigger elect, motor ,, and even a cd /stereo player :eek: :approve: :cool:

    Hey Rod and Darlin I have a plain Jane electric GC that serves me well. Now I don't take it with me when we go camping, it used mostly for the Grand kids and when playing golf. Now I will sell it with the right offer :laugh:

    Hi Jim how have you been doing? Missed you on the chat line, but we know you have been out camping, and that is good. But I must tell you the cool cart are way over my head for a golf cart. I wouldn't pay that much for a truck must less a cart. But some deep pockets will. anyway nice to hear from you take care

    How about roller skates. :laugh: I just use my feet to get around. I will admit in Myrtle Beach I had to be quick to get out of the way of all those slick status golf carts. :bleh:

    WOW! Golf Carts are that expensive? You can buy a 3 bed/2bath house, not on the water, here in SW Fla(Cape Coral) for that 35K. You can buy a 2/2 or 3/2 mobile home on .5-1 acres of land , in North Fort Myers for 18-30K.

    We were in MB 2-3 yrs ago & you could NOT bring in your own cart. You had to rent theirs. Was a nice CG, if you have kids. They had fishing contest & lots of activities.

    Why not just hookup the car or what ever you have as a toad. That way if there are other sites to see or entertainment a few miles away you can travel and not pickup your home.
