If you are talking about the Cricket, yeppers we bought one last Sept. and we really enjoy it...We have not had any reason to compress it (fold) as we tow it on a utility trailer.....We take it with us on our trips and to putt around the neighborhood with the grand kids.....

I've got just a couple of questions about them, and I'm having trouble finding answers...
Approximately how far that can travel on a full charge?
What is their overall length when left unfolded?
What is their top speed on level ground?

Thanks!

Top speed 13 Mph on flat ground, most campground speed limits that we have been to are 10 mph or less.... The brochure states 30 miles on a full charge, we use ours cruising around the campground all day then put it on the charger at night and the batteries are usually at half full or a little below....If I remember right it is 78 inches fully extended....You pull part of the floor board and the rear step and it folds to 58 inches.....

The 78" OAL when not folded, is pretty impressive. The full-sized carts are usually right around 95", and 42" worth of width.
I've even got a Dealership that's only about an hour South of me.

What? Its electric, goes 200+ miles, and can even go on the freeway...oh yeah and its dolly towable. Well ok it doesn't fold up like that cool Cricket..

Hey, some gearheads even consider it a golf cart

(I'll stop trolling LOL )

Just a heads up, when you are towing it remember to take off the steering wheel. Have them show you how.. Just unscrew it by unthreading the nut on the steering column...When we were bringing ours home I happened to look in the mirror and noticed the steering wheel was wobbling around...Sure enough the nut loosened up from vibration going down the highway. So I always take it off when towing...Also take off the shade shelter when towing... We also bungee the windshield and the seat.. Met a guy a few weeks ago that has the same color as you some how lost his seat when on a trip....We also purchased the weather enclosure so we donít get wet on those Rainey days....We really enjoy it, taking it out again this weekend...Enjoy....

They are the best when size matters. We have had ours for 14 momths. We put ours in the trailer side ways and the car behind. We are full timers, so the cricket gets alot use.
