Electric "off road vehicle"
What are my options? I want something that is quite enough to drive around the neighborhood but also high power enough to pull a medium size John boat with trolling motor only with. Would a golf cart with bigger tires do that? Side by sides are just too damn loud for the driving around the neighborhood. Likely would not take it trail riding. (have 4 wheelers at the camp)

I have a Textron (bad boy buggy) and it’s been great. I pull a 14 foot aluminum boat behind it often with no problems. This option is a bit more expensive than a golf cart but it will absolutely get the job done.

re: Electric "off road vehicle"
I have a club car 2 wheel drive,lift kit,atv tires.I pull 14 ft.aluminum boat with trolling motor and battery down to the bayou,never know it’s back there.Actually ,I have pulled trailer loaded with 600 lbs seed and fertilizer no problem,That’s on flat ground or slight incline only.
I ease around my property and have shot good many hogs off it.Could’ve shot deer couple times if I had wanted to.
It won’t go places I used to take my 4wd Yamaha 4 wheeler,but it works good here on my property.

Do you think it would be able to load and unload boat on concrete boat ramp?

re: Electric "off road vehicle"
I have a gas powered ClubCar and use it for exactly what you are describing. Its barely louder than the electric, but requires virtually no maintenance...and it tows well. I pull a 14' trailer (singe axle) with mine regularly and it does great. Its also easy to adjust for more speed if you like.

Concrete ramp-I don’t think it would be any problem.Where I unload mine is about 20-25 degree slope(dirt)That’s If ground is dry,if it’s wet I use my tractor.

Bought a ranger EV this year. It has not disappointed me yet.

The EV out performs the bad boys and lifted carts at our camp. We've pretty much used mine to haul or pull anything around now. Been very pleased with battery life also.

re: Electric "off road vehicle"
We have been Running Ranger EVs for years now and have literally put them through hell. I would not ever consider getting anything else electric in its category. Battery life is unbelievable, plenty fast, and very powerful. I feel that it’s over looked a lot by outdoorsmen.

Ranger EV, if cost is not your main concern. My buddy has one that we use every year in Illinois and the thing is bad ass.
