Default SSR 2 bedroom and an ECV

Anyone know is there a good spot to put an ECV in a 2-bedroom at SSR where it can be charged? At the VGF, I normally put it in the hallway where the laundry area is, same at the Riviera, but there is no such hallway in the SSR 2 bedrooms, so I am looking for options. I haven't stayed there since I started using an ECV and looking at YouTube tours hasn't shown me a great option.

When we stayed at SSR 2 bedroom in September 2021 it was the first time I used an ECV. Parked it right outside the door in that angled area. Conveniently there was an outlet right there and it worked perfectly. Since then I was told by ScooterBug they require you to put it in your villa.

Next month we will be back with a full house and will have to put it in the master bedroom.

In a 1 bedroom I put it in the living room in front of the sliders but SSR has the chaise lounge that prohibits that plan.

We were able to fit my wife's ECV inside the front door with no problem in a one bedroom.

We were just there in a 1 bedroom and there is a plug when you come in door and you can easily fit a scooter in that area I think. If not, if you don't need the fold down little bed, it could go right in front of that under the TV. Or under the kitchen shelf. Honestly, the unit has plenty of room.

I don't know how they manuever but think you should be ok.

Grandson will be on that little bed under the t.v. He prefers that to the Murphy bed in the wall.

Interesting, I rented from ScooterBug in July but I was never told that. I am renting from someone else this time, so not sure if that will be an issue or not.

I am wondering if that was the area that would lead to the 2nd bedroom, which we will be using this trip. We won't be in a lockoff and I think that area is a bit smaller in a regular two-bedroom.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom with my mom and she rides an ECV.
We were able to keep hers just inside the entry, no problem. There was enough room it didn't block the bedroom door.

And I am guessing there was an outlet close enough by to use for charging?

I just watched another YouTube that showed the entry way from a different angle and it looks like an ECV will fit right under that horse picture and there is an outlet right there as well. I had not seen it from that angle before, but I can now see where this will work.
