A utility trailer for the golf cart and the wife follows driving the jeep.

PS: Swivel wheel trailers are gray area in terms of if they are considered double towing. Also, never seen one where you have a toad behind it.

Swivel wheel trailer

I've seen these a few times on the road and in a campground

That's a pretty cool solution. If the OP has a newer Challenger they seem to be rated for 8,000# towing so it would probably work if the tongue weight of the swivel trailer isn't too much.

I see the OP is from my old stomping grounds of Manahawkin, NJ and it also appears that triple towing is illegal in all of the states he would pass through on the way to Florida.

If the OP's Jeep can handle the hitch weight, a mini golf cart on a carrier on back of jeep might work. Mini Golf Carts

Buy a Jeep Gladiator (truck bed Wrangler), and a Cricket golf cart. The Cricket is very compact compared to a standard golf cart for transporting. It expands to a usable size when deployed.

Weighs only 303 pounds! Folds down to 28" high! And it's only 32" Wide!

OR, get a Wrangler, and use a rear hitch mount for the Cricket.

FWIW, I did take my full sized golf cart (900 lbs.) with us when we had a travel trailer. It just fit the 6.5' bed. The tailgate had to be removed otherwise it could have impact the trailer in a tight turn.

We're selling our vacation home in SW Fla and plan on using our Challenger for future vacations of a month to 6 weeks. I'm thinking I might want to buy a golf cart to bring along with my Jeep towed. Is there a way to do this? Maybe something to put the golf cart on and then hook up the Jeep.

Best way is to buy a new Jeep Gladiator PU and for putting the GC in the bed of the truck and it should fit with the tailgate down.
I'd like getting one eventually myself, but won't be buying new.
Big bucks, even used, for my auto budget.
Another way is for pulling a flat bed trailer and for loading them both on it. My SIL has a tent camper on one, as well as his Jeep CJ5.
Once they get where they're going, they off load the Jeep and use the space for lawn chairs and the like.

The gladiator bed isn't big enough for a golf cart. Golf carts are 8ft long the gladiator bed even with the tailgate down is around 6ft.

The Damon is a nice coach but the F53 it's built on is pretty much limited to 5K lbs towing and maybe even less depending on which chassis model. Your at 4,500 lbs for the Jeep add in potentially 1500 lbs for a light trailer and golf cart puts you beyond the chassis limits. Trailing the Jeep and golf cart will put you well beyond the limits of the chassis.

Spot on summary . . . which has unfortunately been pretty much ignored. I'm guessing OP has disappeared for good.

Well Thank you all for the spot on advise. @Dale.Traveling thanks for the heads up. The cricket mini golf cart has me intrigued. That may be deal moving forward.

Thanks again.
