2 seat cage VS 4 seat cage

Since I've had my rhino I've been looking and pricing 4 seat cages. Sometime last week I was starting to consider 2 seat cages. Now I don't know WTF I want. I don't have any kids so a 4 seater is not a must like some of you. I do see a lot of people that don't have kids get the 4 seater anyway.

Reasons for a 4 seat cage

1.Rarely nieces and nephews would be around at the river and I could take them for a ride.

2. Could put 4 adults in rhino and cruise around our mobile park (5 mph speed limit) at the river drinking and going down to the beach etc which we spend a lot of time doing.

3. Looks cool!

Reasons for a 2 seat cage:

1. I use the bed a lot at the river for big ice chest e-z up beach chairs etc. If were to hung over sometimes my girlfriend and I will just drive the rhino on beach and not take my boat out.

2. a little cheaper for cage not to mention save money on not buying a backseat.

3. Rhino will be a little lighter & maybe a little faster.

4. Looks cool!

Anybody bought 2 seat cage & wish they went with the 4 seater?

Anybody buy a 4 seat and thought damn wish I would stayed with the 2 seater?

And for what reason was the change of heart?

Not quite the direction I wanted to go. 1 money pit is enough for now...or at least until I pay it off

I have had both.... actually I keep switching back and forth.

The 4 seater is good for the kids. They like to ride with me at Pismo. So in the summer I put the full cage and rear seat on....

But the 2 seater is far better. It is faster and it handles better. I couldnt beleive how much more power I had when I took off the cage and rear seat. And the ass end would slide around much better....... 2 seater hands down unless you have kids.

Damn never thought of that! neighbors kids, family's friends kids....might as well paint the thing yellow and have " Taxi" on it.

2 very good point's I think I'm officially leaning towards the 2 seater

You and I sound like we are in the same boat and use our Rhinos in the same way and I have beat this issue up. I have settled on sticking with a 2 seater and leave the bed for the ice chest and a spare on longer rides. My neices get bummed out sometimes because they both want to ride but its rare and its nice to be lighter.
