Use a pick-up and put the GC in the bed.

I've done quite a bit of research on this. Most people will carry the golf cart in the truck bed. Most carts will fit in an 8' bed truck without issue. Some carts will fit in 6.5' bed trucks if you remove the tailgate and get a little creative on cart placement.

In states that it is legal to pull doubles, there are some people that will pull a small utility trailer behind their 5th wheel for their golf cart. I haven't seen it done with a traditional bumper pull travel trailer.

Other than a toy hauler or in the truck, not sure. I don't believe they recommend something that heavy on a bumper or frame mounted carrier. Interested to hear if any other members have figured it out. Good luck!

Toy hauler is the safest and easiest.

If you have a fifth wheel you could possibly pull double but thereís no way you want to pull double with a travel trailer. Way too much sway which gets amplified by the rear trailer.

I load my golf cart in the bed of my truck and then back up to the camper and hookup. Works great. Get good arched ramps. My ramps fold in half as well. Note: I was parked on an uneven shoulder which made the camper nose appear lower than it is...

I've seen a handful of tandems with travel trailers, but I sure wouldn't do it. TTs can be very finicky when you're messing with tongue weight. Also, the tail of a TT tends to move more than that of a 5er which can cause even more issues.

My neighbor does it with a 5er, and it's no problem for him. I've seen tandem tows with lots of 5ers. You just have to make sure the hitch is appropriately attached to the frame, and has the appropriate capacity to tow the trailer in question.

I looked at it briefly when we owned our TT, and I figured I would put it in the bed of the truck (6.5 ft) or tow it with a separate vehicle. I had a longer shank on my hitch to accommodate dropping the hitch with the trailer attached, and my 3/4T Ram had the weight capacity (just enough). Never got around to it, and now I'm in a MH with a host of different issues to ponder! LOL!
