I'm about to buy a Honda Rebel that I'm going to put on a carrier on the back. It should fit on the flatbed, and if you put a hard box on the back, it'll work as a grocery getter as long as you're not buying for a week at a time.

I got a segway X2. Thing has saddle bags. I have ridden it a few miles to a store once or twice.

You could always rent a car.

Which I see in your OP now. Best option still...

We went one of two ways before going full-time & getting the toad. If we were going on a trip where we just needed to travel within a couple of miles (local store, restaurant, etc) we'd load a couple bicycles on the ladder with a homemade S-hook thing & a few bungees. For times when we knew we would be going further afield, we'd shop ahead for a rental in a town on the way to our destination. Urban rental places are always cheaper than the airport equivalents, but some have limited hours. Some places appear cheap at first glance, but their published daily price may not include all the taxes, tariffs etc, and others have limited included miles. We usually used Enterprise or Budget; the added advantage of Enterprise is they will come pick you up & drive you back to their office to do the paperwork & take delivery of your rental vehicle.
On occasion when staying at an urban RV park, we've found one near a bus route & used public transportation to get around.

Check out a double decker car trailer, they have enclosed and not enclosed models. If your pulling a trailer anyway.

Yeah I was going to say stacker, too. But that would pay for like 50 years of car rentals, too.

WHEN we win the lottery, that's the route we're gonna take! We have a friend who used to tow his stacker tag behind his F350 to our autocross events. It was quite a beast, but really nice to go sit in when we weren't running/working, since it had A/C.

so yeah, that's a possibility, but as Andy says, that'll pay for probably 50 rentals, and rentals of the upgraded vehicles!

When you win the lottery, you can just have your staff have your vehicle ready for you. The details become unimportant. Ha!

That's called the carownervirus. Many of us have just learned to live with it.
