We have flown to The Villages and stayed a month with no car, only the electric cart. Also, the cheapest way that we've found to get to/from the airport is to rent a car one way (Enterprise).

NJBlue,
Same issue here, small Florida car. But we figure we'll rent one for the long trips to visit.

We sold our 2nd car after moving to TV and bought 2 golf carts. We rarely use the car anymore. My wife loves her cart and goes everwhere in it. We do most of our errends using the carts. I don't think we used more than 10 gallons of gas in our car last month. I filled our car in the 3rd week of May and it is still a little over half full. Both our carts are electric.

My wife wanted two cars also, but I think I have talked her out of it by suggesting one car, one cart and two Vespa's! I think the scooters were the key!.

Good Idea!!! I don't believe my wife would be interested in a scooter but I sure would. Thanks for the suggestion.

We have a designer 2 car garage. We have one vehicle + one golf cart. Works out great.
No problems yet.

How about 1 car - 2 carts - 1 scooter or motorcycle with a sidecar!

We are living here almost 4 years and have one car and one golf cart and have no problems. If my husband takes the car I take the golf cart and if I take the car he takes the golf cart. If we are together we mostly use the golf cart except if we are leaving TV.

We have two cars, and two golf carts and a two car garage and a golf cart garage-standard sizes - we get both cars and both carts in with no problem. They are all driven straight in - no sideways cars or carts.
Want to know how it is done - e-mail me and I will send you a picture.
