Hitch Mounted Wheel Chair and Scooter Carrier Review

Video Transcript for Hitch Mounted Wheel Chair and Scooter Carrier Review

Today we are going to show you part number SC500 from Rage Powersport Products. What this is is a hitch-mounted wheelchair carrier and scooter carrier. This cargo carrier can also be used for a variety of other things, aside from the original purpose. What is nice about this is it actually comes with a 5-foot-long ramp to easily roll up your wheelchair or scooter onto the carrier itself. It uses a hinged, bi-fold ramp design It can also double as a regular cargo carrier. It comes complete with built-in tie-down mounting points, and also included is an anti-rattle device. And one last thing about the ramp itself is it can actually fold completely flat into the platform when you are not using it. Now we will cover some more of these features in a little bit more detail.

One of the first features we will show you is the anti-rattle device. As you can see here, we have installed a typical 2-inch receiver hitch. It is not hooked up right now, but this is the part right here that makes it an anti-rattle. What this does is, when your carrier is plugged into the hitch and securely attached with the pin, this plate goes up here. And on the bottom are three screws. These three screws actually tighten up against the bottom edge of the hitch and pull the cargo carrier down and clamp it into one position, where it cannot go anywhere. And you tighten those three screws down with a 17-millimeter socket.

The next feature we are going to show you is that the whole carrier can actually tilt up when you are not carrying anything in it. So you will not have a carrier hanging out the back of your vehicle unnecessarily. This is the pin right here. Pull out the safety clip. You may need to pull a little bit of the tension off of it. Pull off the pin, push it back into position, and replace the pin. There you have it: when you are not using it, you do not have to have it hanging out for no apparent reason. Next, we will unfold the bi-fold ramp, which is the best part of this carrier. It has a neat little pin release here. Just pull up the pin and grab the handle and just pull it right up. And also you have got another pin back here that allows you to keep the door up in an upright position when you are carrying something inside of it and then hold it open still and unfold your ramp.

Now we will go ahead and demonstrate the ramp itself. We do not have a wheelchair or anything like that but we will actually use a lawnmower here and roll it up on here to give you a better idea of how much room it takes and how easy it is to do it. We have our lawnmower in place, properly centered over the cargo carrier. All we need to do now is just go ahead and tie it down. It has got plenty of hooks right here - four on each side to tie down your equipment. Same thing on the opposite side, as well as two on the non-ramp side of the carrier. One nice little detail on here is it has carrying handles built into it also. It also has a nice rubber lining in there a little easier on your fingers as you are taking the unit on and off of your vehicle. All right, and that covers it for part number SC500.

There are three screws on the bottom of the sleeve that are tightened up against the bottom edge of the hitch and pull the cargo carrier down and clamp it into one position, where it cannot go anywhere.

We offer the arm and carrier together as one unit; the Rage PowerSport Swing-Away Hitch Mount Wheelchair/Scooter Carrier, part # SC500-AL105.

  • Will the Rage PowerSport Scooter Carrier # SC500-AL105 Obstruct Taillights of 2011 Subaru Forester
  • The # SC500-AL105 Swing-Away Scooter Carrier should not extend any higher than the top of the bumper on your Forester. As you can see in the photo I edited for you, this leaves plenty of room so that the tail lights will not be obstructed by the carrier. Keep in mind that this is a carrier that has an integrated ramp, but it is not a lift. You will not need any additional lighting for your Forester.

You will also want to ensure that the weight of the carrier, plus the weight of your snow blower, does not exceed the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle or trailer hitch.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Swinging Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier Recommendations for 2006 Dodge Sprinter
  • There are swinging bike racks and swinging cargo carriers but not one that has both combined into one unit. Swinging bike racks come in 4-bike options. I recommend the Thule Vertex, # TH9031. It as many of the same features of the Apex minus the more advanced cradles and the anti-rattle hub but at a more reasonable price. I have linked a video review for you. For a swinging carrier there are a couple of options. There is an enclosed carrier, # 59109, and a platform carrier, # SC500-AL105....

  • How to Carry a 300 Pound Mobility Scooter with a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • For your 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan you are going to need a Class III trailer hitch, like # 87717. This is a 2 inch hitch that has a 350 pound tongue weight capacity. However, all of the carriers weight 85 pounds or more so if you add the weight of the carrier to the 300 pound chair you would be exceeding that capacity. The safest option would be to use the hitch to tow a small trailer, # UWT1. This trailer was designed for motorized chairs/scooters and will offer easy loading/unloading...

  • Largest Available Hitch-Mount Ramped Cargo Carrier for 2-Inch Hitch
  • A good first step in considering your best option in a ramped cargo carrier is a check of your hitch's tongue weight rating, which should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the key stats...

  • Is there a Front Mount Hitch for a 2003 Dodge 3500 Van, Other Options for Carrying a Scooter
  • The weight of the carrier plus the weight of the scooter would push the limits of most front mounted hitches. With that being said, there are no front mounted hitches available for your 2003 Dodge 3500 Van. We do have a rear mounted hitch that has more than enough capacity for the scooter plus the rack. But I am assuming the issue is that you cannot carry the scooter on the back for any number of reasons. But if you are open to the option, look at the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch,...

  • Will the Rage PowerSport Swing-Away Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Fit a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • The Rage PowerSport carrier, # SC500-AL105, is designed to fit 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Measure the receiver opening on your trailer hitch to determine if it is a 1-1/4 or 2 inch. If you need a 2 inch trailer hitch, the most popular option is # 87451. I have linked instructions and a video for you. You will also need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 10-1/4 inches and you...

  • Folded up in its storage position the Rage Hitch-Mount Wheelchair Carrier for 2-inch Class III hitches, Part # SC500-AL105, will extend back from the center of the hitch receiver pin hole by 8-5/8 inches. I confirmed this with my contact at Rage. Unfolded in the down position the carrier provides 17-1/8 inches clearance to the hitch pin hole. You can determine if this carrier will clear your Wrangler spare tire by measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole back 8-5/8 inches. If...

  • Compatibility of Rage Powersport # SC500-AL105 Scooter Carrier with 2011 VW Tiguan
  • To determine if the Rage Swing-Away Scooter Carrier, part # SC500-AL150 will fit on your Tiguan, you will need to measure the distance to your bumper from your hitch pin hole (see diagram). When folded in the downward position, the distance from the hitch pin hole in the shank of the carrier to the closest portion of the carrier is 10-1/4 inches. When folded flat up against the vehicle in its storage position, the closest portion of the carrier is 8-5/8 inches from the hitch pin hole. If...

This carrier was designed to fit 2 inch trailer hitches and has a weight capacity of 500 lbs. There are two important factors to consider when choosing a hitch mounted accessory.

  • Why is the Rage PowerSport Swing-Away Wheelchair Carrier not Recommended for 5th Wheel Trailers
  • The ride quality at the back of a fifth wheel trailer is considerably rougher than the ride at the rear of a passenger vehicle. This is due to the suspension differences between vehicles and trailers and the distance from the rear axle to the rear of the trailer. Trailers typically have a pretty large distance from the rear axle to the rear of the vehicle and this causes much more movement there. Similar to how sitting in the back of a school bus is much rougher than sitting near the...

  • Is Swing Arm for Rage Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier Available By Itself

  • Can the Shank on the Pro Series Cargo Carrier # 63153 be Installed with a Drop Instead of a Rise
  • The shank on the Pro Series cargo carrier # 63153 is meant to only install with a rise. But the reason that some people have installed it upside down is because the diagram in the instructions, see link, shows the basket being assembled upside down so it is a little confusing. What I recommend is a carrier with a straight shank such as # 52018 or # CC-100. Or another option is a swinging carrier, # SC500-AL105, which will swing off to the side of the vehicle allowing for greater...

  • Can Rage Swinging Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Swung Out when Loaded
  • The Rage swinging cargo carrier, # SC500-AL105, cannot be swung out when it is loaded. It is not designed to handle the stress. There currently is no solution for a swinging carrier that will work when loaded and that has the capacity for a 300 to 350 pound generator. I recommend a fixed carrier with a long ramp, # MT70260. The longer ramp will make moving the generator easier than a shorter ramp and is the best solution at this time. The carrier weighs almost 100 pounds so the combined...

  • All of the hitches available for your 2001 Nissan Altima are Class I 1-1/4 inch hitches, the Rage Carrier part # SC500-AL105 that you referenced requires a hitch with a 2 inch opening. The best solution I could provide for you would be to install a hitch on your vehicle like the part # 24690 and then use a trailer like the Magneta Trailer with Spring Axle for Wheelchairs and Electric Scooters # UWT1 to transport your scooter. For trailer wiring you would want the Tow Ready Harness...

  • Carrying an Electric Wheelchair on a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen
  • The use of an adapter to go from a 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch to a 2 inch receiver will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch my 50 percent. The combined weight of the carrier and the electric wheelchair cannot exceed the reduced capacity. Since Class I trailer hitches max out at 200 pounds tongue weight this would mean that by using the adapter the tongue weight capacity will be just 100 pounds. The Rage carrier # SC500-AL105 weighs more than 100 pounds so you would be...

  • Solutions for Carrying Wheelchair with 2012 Nissan Altima
  • There are indeed hitches available for a 2012 Altima. For a sedan, I'd recommend the Hidden Hitch Class I hitch, part # 60873 or for the coupe, part # 60877. The available hitches for your Altima are a Class I, that have a tongue weight capacity (maximum downward force that can be applied to the hitch) of 200 lbs. This means that any carrier used plus the wheelchair couldn't weigh more than 200 lbs. None of the wheelchair carriers we offer would be compatible with a Class I hitch. Your...

  • Not Enough Ground Clearance using Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier on 2010 VW Jetta SportWagen
  • The best solution would be to use a trailer hitch mounted carrier that has a rise in the shank such as # 6500. From the top of the receiver opening to the bottom of the tray is 3 inches. We have included a video to the cargo carrier. If the cargo carrier you have will fit a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver I would recommend hitch adapter # HT5R. But the use of the adapter will decrease the amount of the tongue capacity by 50 percent. As well as putting more stress on the hitch.

Since this particular carrier has a 250-lb weight capacity, it would not work with your 265-lb Honda generator. We also offer a swinging platform-type ramped carrier from Rage Powersports, their # SC500-AL105, which fits 2-inch hitches and offers a 500-lb load rating, plenty for your generator.

With that being said, the maximum capacity of anything you would mount to a trailer hitch would be approximately 100 lbs or less. Since the Rage PowerSport Swing-Away, Hitch-Mounted Wheelchair and Scooter Carrier, part # SC500-AL105 weighs 126 lbs by itself, it would certainly exceed any capacity allowed by the vehicle.

Then open the rear door on your RAV4 to see if the path of the door would interfere with the carrier.

I doubt you would be able to install or remove the carrier into the hitch by yourself. Before choosing and installing a mobility scooter carrier, you will need to determine the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, which is typically 10 percent of the towing capacity. According to my research, a properly equipped Forester has a 2400 lb towing capacity which would mean...
