I work on Golf Carts for a living and I can tell you I CRINGE everytime I have one come in for service in the back of a truck.

Unless you load/unload in a ditch, the angle is VERY steep (even with 8foot ramps) I have personally witnessed 3 carts flip while being unloaded.

A battery powered cart weighs in at roughly 1000 pounds which becomes a hassle when calculating your load weight with a camper trailer hooked up as well.

If you have a short bed, chances are you may not be able to close your tailgate.

If you have a 4 passenger forget about it with a short bed, some of them won't even fit in a longbed and still close the tailgate.
