A Caravan Cart is a vehicle consisting of a car trunk pulled by a brahmin. Its main use is to carry a player's stuff for trading or moving a big amount of items at once. Even if the cart is not a fast vehicle, it can still carry 10 players max, like the vertibird, Truck and the Hummer.
Caravan Carts have a different spawn point than normal humans, so don't panic if you hit a random encounter and don't see it right next to you, it is on the map somewhere.
You can buy carts from Paul in NCR (in the bazaar, where your car would park in the fallout 2 game). Talk to him with enough caps in your inventory and one brahmin (to pull the cart) following you and you'll be able to buy a cart. The cart will spawn right after that behind Paul's shop, and you'll have a key in your inventory. Be careful of players near by that might try to steal your key or lockpick your caravan cart and vanish into the wasteland.
Caravan Carts also sold in Klamath
To sell your cart, talk with Paul while holding the key to your car in your hand and follow the dialog options to sell it. Keep in mind that the cart matching the key must be on same map as the dealer.
Cart Management and Operation
Traveling with Your Cart
Unlike vehicles, a caravan cart will not give you any speed bonus when you travel around the wasteland, but they do operate much the same way they do. To travel with your cart click on the brahmin with the appropriate key in your inventory or hand and you will enter the world map. If your cart has fuel you can then travel around the wasteland like normal. Players that have you tagged will be able to follow you onto the world map if they are close enough.
Each caravan cart has a trunk for item storage, however they can only carry so much depending on which type you have (see Options below for trunk sizes). Accessing the trunk requires you to have the cart's matching key in your hand or inventory (or a really good lockpick skill), then click on the boxes in the back of the cart. You can then place the desired items into the carts trunk space.
If your cart runs out of fuel it will stop on the world map, so be sure to stop and give your brahmin water from time to time by using Water Bags or bottles of water on it. Simply click on the brahmin and select the little bag icon to access your inventory. Then click on a full Water Bag or Bottle with water in your inventory, and your cow will be refreshed (aka cart refueled: ratio is 1 container of water to 1 unit of fuel). You will also have to repair it from time to time by using the Repair skill on your cart.
If you run out of water, it is a good idea to stay on the world map until someone arrives with more water for you. This will lessen the amount of time you are inside encounter therefore less other players might stumble upon it by accident. If you are alone you may run into trouble if you have no water, you will have to abandon your cart to get water and return. Players can find your cart as random encounter and possibly lockpick it or just wait for you to come back with keys.
