Golf carts and long beds

Just wondering if a golf cart will fit in the back of my long bed with the tailgate up. Im looking at a Yamaha with the 4 seater (2 rear facing backwards.) The specs on some of the carts says yes but some say no. Does anyone tow and haul their carts in the bed? The model Im looking at is a G29. Thanks in advanced. Im hoping to go look at it Sunday and see for myself if it will fit. Im a little worried about the passenger foot rest not fitting. Im also considering the truck bed mount that raises the cart or atv above the bed. Im also pretty handy with a welder but seems like a pia to have to put in and take out when not using. Ive also considered cutting the foot rest and hinging it so I can raise it to close the gate. All recommendations will be considered...

Club car or Easygo. Yamaha parts are expensive. Most carts will fit just fine in a long bed, but tailgate will take abuse from loading cart on/off. Some people, will use a board to displace the weight off of tailgate onto bed of truck. Some remove tailgate when loading/unloading, so it doesn’t crumple.

Google is telling me that a Yamaha G29 is 94.3" long which _should_ fit in an 8' bed with the tailgate up.

They have a high weight capacity but on the bottom of the page it says not for golf carts. Go figure. I'll know this tuesday when I load it up and hook to my camper. I may put some 2x4's under the hinges so they cant buckle. I bought them mostly for my Road Glide.

Here's a quick video of the Titan ramps. They look a little stressed.
