I am not certain what is the point of your posting is.  If 
we understand the Exodus as a series of miracles by Yahweh 
that effortlessly defy scientific explanation then yes, why 
not have them have ox carts and oxen in the Sinai?  
However, if you are asking could a mob of run away slaves 
move ox carts accros an exposed ocean bottom covered in 
mud, slime, rocks, and coral and then move those same 
carts, with oxen, around the Sinai for weeks, months, or 
years without a reliable supply of fodder and water, then I 
would say that it is probably not possible.  The Egyptians 
could probably move ox carts about the sinai on short term 
expidetions, having an well developed logistical support 
sytem back in Egypt to support them.
