Once upon a time, making short runs to the corner store, heading to the neighborhood pool or visiting friends down the street meant squeezing into a golf cart. Trouble is, those vehicles are designed for carrying a couple of players and their golf bags from the front to the back nine. Golf carts aren’t ideally designed for carrying groceries, pool gear and food when making the rounds in the neighborhood. Nor are they street legal.
Now there is a better alternative that can do all of the above—the all-purpose cart, a hybrid off-road vehicle that active outdoor families are discovering as the perfect match for their needs.
Even better, these hybrids can perform double duty away from home for family outdoor adventures. Whether it’s roaming around the campground, down to the dock or across the field to the pond, these carts can do it all. That even includes crossing sandy beaches or muddy terrain when the need arises for all-wheel drive capabilities. They offer the functionality of an ATV, with the practicality of comfortable seating, and with just the right amount of cargo space, just like a compact SUV.
What’s so cool about all-purpose carts? They are easy to start and have plenty of power from EFI gas engines. They are easy to drive and are more practical than Grandpa’s golf cart. They are stylish, too, and can be outfitted for fishing, trap shooting, hauling and of course, neighbor visiting and even parading. Across RV parks, around the marina and throughout the neighborhood, All-Purpose Carts are just easier to get around, and even park, than the family SUV.
The first question you might have is whether or not these vehicles are street legal. The answer depends on where you live. A windshield, headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals and mirrors—those are the basics required by most local governments, along with seat belts for every passenger.
Are you ready to pack up the gear, load up the kids and leave the SUV parked in the garage? For short trips—and getting even closer to the outdoors—these all-purpose carts are the way to go. TRACKER OFF ROAD All-Purpose Carts are worth taking a look at, and you can at your nearest Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s Boating Center. The friendly experts can also fill you in on local laws and rules of the road for these vehicles.
