The SC500-V3 deluxe wheelchair and scooter carrier has all the premium features offered at a super low introductory affordable price! The main features of this mobility carrier are the folding design and extra long 59" loading ramp allowing this carrier to be used on just about any vehicle with a 2" trailer hitch. With the pull of a hitch pin your carrier can be folded up vertically to the back of your vehicle to save space when parking in car ports, garages, or parking lots! The wheelchair and scooter carrier is constructed of steel, has a thick black powder coat to protect from the elements, and has a massive 500 lb weight capacity! The surface of the carrier is a heavy duty steel mesh with 1" square support tubes underneath which won't bend or flex from the weight of your scooter or wheelchair. The mobility carrier has everything you need for loading and hauling your expensive mobility device.

The wheelchair and scooter carrier features an integrated two section ramp which folds up and out into three different positions. The first position keeps the ramp folded flat to the carrier surface and held down with a spring pull pin. The folded flat position is to keep the ramp self stored and secured when the carrier is folded up. The second ramp position allows the ramp to stand up straight when a mobility device is on the carrier and is held in place with two spring pins. The last position is the ramp unfolded. This position allows for scooters or power wheelchairs to be pushed or driven up the ramp. Please Note: Mobility devices are not to be occupied when loading, unloading, or on the carrier! The ramp is 27-1/2" wide by 59" long providing a gradual slope for easy loading of your mobility device. A welded handle featured on the ramp allows for easy folding and unfolding. Tie down straps are available in cam or ratchet styles with rubber coated hooks which can be hooked onto any of the 10 tie down holes featured on the 4-1/4" tall tray sides. The tray sides feature five carrying handles for easy handling when installing the device. The rear of the carrier has two reflectors for greater visibility at night. The carrier's usable dimensions are 46-1/2" long by 28" wide, accommodating almost all of today's mobility devices.

In addition to the cam and ratchet straps, retractable straps are also available. These are the easiest straps to use with the SC500-V3 carrier. By removing the extension on the retractable strap they can be mounted directly to the 4 mounting points on the carrier allowing you to quickly strap down your power wheelchair or scooter. These straps can remain on your carrier at all times so they are always handy.

Supporting the carrier is the heavy duty 2" hitch tube which features 2 bolts and a safety pin underneath to allow the hitch tube to be removed from the carrier. Two bolts fitted underneath the folding hitch tube allow you to level the carrier so that the pin holes line up to secure the carrier in the unfolded position. The distance between the hitch pin hole and the carrier is 13-1/2" unfolded and when the carrier is folded the distance is 4-5/8". This carrier is not recommended for 1-1/4" hitches. Also available is a heavy duty anti-tilt locking device which prevents carrier wobble during transportation. The hitch tube has a 5/8" hitch pin hole for the included hitch pin and 1/2" hole for the pinch bolt (if anti tilt can not be used) for securing the carrier to your vehicle and will work on Class III or IV hitches. Includes a 1 year warranty!

NOT recommended for any tow-behind trailers including 5th wheel trailers and camping trailers due to excessive bouncing of the vehicle's suspension

Swing Away Option

The Swing Away option allows for increased access to the rear of a vehicle. With the wheelchair carrier unloaded, simply swing the entire unit away, to the side. The hitch adapter configuration also enables up to a 7" rise (4" with the hitch adapter & 3" with the carrier adapter) designed for low-to-ground vehicle hitch tubes.
Please note the carrier must be unloaded for proper Swing Away operation.
