Default Loading golf cart

I have a stock height short bed f250 and need some advice about loading. Iíve got plenty of payload and towing capacity and Will also be towing a camper. If I remove my tailgate I can get the cart in the bed and strapped down with no issue. I would like to leave my tail gate on the truck and strap it up. Have not yet towed the camper as I will be picking it up from the campground storage this weekend but wanted to see if anyone has experience on this situation.

Having a typical WD hitch is it possible to strap the tail gate up and still have clearance for turning with the camper? If so how did you strap the tail gate up?

I figure that someone has experience and can give some advice so I do t need to do hard learning myself.

Thanks for the advice.

I also have a short bed but 4x4 so a little taller. My tailgate comes off because it would hit the propane bottles in a sharp turn. I also have the power jack but because of the height my seat step clears it. If you really want the gate where you are going either put it in the camper or in the bed next to the cart..

I have heard and seen mixed emotions on this with tailgate on and off. My 2 cents is keep the tailgate off I used to strap mine to the carts rear seat floor board just to hold the tailgate up and keep the cart stowed with a couple completely different straps. I did this until I had a close call with a tailgate and now I completely remove it and leave it off till I get home! On top of that it will be trailer and cart specific weather it would work of not. The original rear seat on my cart had a taller foot rest and I could get the tailgate up pretty high, I put a new seat where the foot rest was below the bumper and the tailgate couldn't be angled very high, outside of that your trailer geometry, propane tanks, tongue jack, and things like that will dictate if it works or not for you.

If you dont want to do any "hard learning" keep the tailgate off!

You can do it if you have the clearance. Only you can answer that.
