Anyone here use a hitch carrier?

As topic, interested to know what you guys might use !

I'm going to be getting the Curt 13456 hitch, but need to work out which carrier we need for my wife's mobility scooter.

It's a heavy Censored , so thank god the Curt item has such a high Tongue Weight rating!

I've got a Curt - no idea the model number as it was on when I bought it.

I have a hitch carrier I use occasionally. It took the weight of a steel ski chair no problem - a real old school chair with legs added, weighed a ton.

Scooter should be no worries. Thumbs Up

The original LR hitch was rated at 500kg, evidently LR downgraded that to 250kg an occasional use.

Class III, Class IV

For what it's worth...

I use the factory unit to tow my camp trailer winch is about 5k lb loaded, but i'm not sure of specific tongue weight. Its stamped 770lb limit, if your chair weights more than that you might want the CURT.
