Video Transcript for MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier with Ramp Test Course

Here you see it out on our test course. First is the slalom, which shows the side to side action, to simulate turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next, are the alternating speed bumps, which show you the twisting action, such as hitting a pothole, road debris, or going over a curb. Finally, we will finish with the solid speed bumps, which show the up and down action, to simulate a parking garage or coming out of a driveway. .

The box arrived banged up. The contents were tough so it wasn't an issue. For the price it seems adequate. The electric wheelchair went up backwards up the ramp well with a little practice. Overall a good carrier. Thanks 575822

The product did what was promised: provided me the means to carry my wife's electric scooter from home to church/store/visits. The material was solid the ease to load was convenient. Thanks! 573835

I'm giving his carrier a 5 star rating because it lives up to it's advertised description. It was rather simple to assembly, about 30 minutes for me. The extra long ramp is the best I've seen in this price range and it's sturdy enough to handle my 250 LBS stature as I walked up and bounced on the flat platform. The full length stretched steel mesh is tack welded all throughout the frame and this style material simplifies loading with ease. After assembly was complete, I did need a 2nd person to help mount the carrier onto the vehicle. The carrier arrived 2 days ahead of the projected delivery date. Hats-Off for etrailer.com great price and great product and FREE shipping! 433605


Comments

The cargo carrier still functions as intended load and haul. What we found with it’s use is that the alignment pins are tight and we have to jiggle the carrier to fully close the ramp and that along, has been difficult. We knew in the beginning it would take two people to mount the carrier to the vehicle hitch, but we struggle due to its weight and size, just to got it properly mounted onto the vehicle hitch. The school of hard-knocks has taught me that maybe the aluminum unit would have been a better choice, as the steel unit is very heavy and the more I struggle with it, the heavy it gets.

I bought this because of the great reviews from other customers. It took me 45 minutes to assemble using instructions. Would have liked to have larger font for diagram in instructions. I will be using this to take equipment for repair, bringing it closer to work area. Will use to remove hunting success from woods as well. Love the price. 382127

This cargo carrier is heavy duty for sure. That’s the pro and the con. Being heavy duty it is very heavy to lift and install with one person. Some of the holes didn’t line up right and had to be re- drilled. The ramp was welded a little offset so it hits the cage around the platform when you fold up the ramp completely. All in all I wish I didn’t buy this one but if you always have a second person to help u And if you don’t mind modifying it to work properly than I will say it is pretty sturdy and economical choice. 492001

I used the carrier yesterday to pickup our new 24" wide two stage snow blower. It worked great! The only issues were the chains to hold the lynch pens broke off with just a slight tug. Also the paint scrapes off easily. I might repaint it to help prevent rusting. 106272

I had the same problem with the chains. Fortunately I had some jack chain around.

The Carrier was delivered to me very fast. Upon assembly the holes in the tongue were misaligned and it was impossible to put the hitch pin through them. { This was a problem caused by the factory } The Lady I called at customer service was very courteous but she explained it would be at least a week before I even received a return label for the part. Rather than wait I had the holes drilled out to align them enough to put the hitch pin through. Other than that this seems to be a good carrier but it is very heavy for anyone disabled to use without assistance 195331

The service from etrailer was fantastic, I ordered the carrier and received within two days and was using within three. It works as advertised I was able to roll my 26" snowblower up the ramp without a problem and the carrier was very stable in transporting it several blocks. Thanks etrailer. 236399

The carrier is as advertised. Assembly went well, but would have been faster had I done it fifty years ago. :-) I have not yet installed it on my vehicle. Primary use intended is for my wife's power wheelchair. I may have uses for it as a substitute for my large utility trailer. Assembly instructions are complete and accurate. I may submit a picture later after installation on vehicle. I am pleased overall with the purchase. 133684


Comments

I dont use the carrier often, but nice to have it when needed. I put it on by myself, so when take it off, set it up on blocks at near the right height for mounting. I have to agree with others, pins and chains are flimsy, but I have no major complaints with the unit. Serving my purpose.

This is a great cargo carrier and has the quality I expected. My need for this is to haul around a 4 wheel Mobility Scooter and it does it's job. It is well built and a solid hookup when you use the anti rattle and tilt device that's furnished with the cargo carrier, no tilt or rattles at all except the fold up ramp when it's folded up but a bungee strap stopped that. All in All it's a great product and no complaints what so ever and etrailer.com is a super place to shop and are extremely helpful when information is needed. I rate this website and product 5 STARS 138298

Hello George, I did not receive the strap that holds the ramp down to the platform and the 4 jam nuts for the anti-vibration mechanism were not there either. Cutting a little expanded metal ends away to get the two ramp keepers in also was done. Overall after it was assembled it looks good! It should serve the purpose for what I purchased it for. 449807

I bought this carrier for my dad's power chair. His truck sits high so we needed the 60" ramp. I haven't used the carrier yet because it is a surprise for him so I can't give 5 stars. I'm giving 4 for the ease of ordering, fantastic shipping and quality of the carrier. I ordered this carrier on a Sunday afternoon and it arrived Wednesday evening! I did opt for the express delivery which states 3-5 business days. I assumed I'd get it Thursday at best but I was pleasantly surprised. I put it together by myself using a grand total of 5 wrenches. I could've reduced that number to 2 if I'd used adjustable wrenches but I had ratchet wrenches on hand to fit everything. Speaking of that, all the bolt/nut sizes are emperial (not metric) and that made it easier. I had it un-packed, assembled and installed on my truck to fit test everything in under 30 minutes. It is a little heavy and awkward for one person to lift/mount but it isn't impossible. I'm of average height, weight and strength and managed it without too much strain. The fact that it is heavy is a good thing, in my opinion. I'd be afraid of a steel carrier of this size if it wasn't substantially heavy. The finish is very good, all components were in the packaging and I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I'll come back after we've put some miles on it and see which way I need to amend my review! 231843


Comments

The only complaint that I have is the ramp angle and edge. The ramp, even being longer, still has a sharp angle that makes loading a power chair difficult. It isnt a ride on process. The edge of the ramp is 1 steel tubing and it is difficult to get the chair wheels over it. The problem comes when loading because you cannot get up any speed to bounce over the edge because you will slip off the edge.

Pros: This trailer is a solid piece of equipment and a good value for the price. While the ramp is a little on the heavy side, it is still lighter and less strenuous to move overall than lifting my mobility scooter out of the back of my vehicle myself. Cons: I used it on my 2012 Rogue and it notoriously scraped almost every driveway we went in or out of. (Tip - approach at a significant angle to decrease the severity of the scrape.) Unsurprisingly, the part of the rack that frequently came into contact with asphalt quickly lost its powder coat finish and rusted. The little clips that hold the ramp up in place wore out after about a month or two and had to be replaced (available at specialty hardware stores.) The chains that kept hold of the clips were no match for Wisconsin winters - they degraded even quicker, rusting through and falling off within a month. The anti-shake bracket was extremely hard to tighten and if we were lucky enough to get it tightened, it would not stay that way for long. Also, putting the rack into its compact, upright position is difficult at first until the bolt wears the hole down enough (the whole thing is very heavy, definitely a two-person job.) Overall, the cons were mostly minor annoyances, and the functionality of the rack remains. I am still thankful to have this option and continue to have mobility options even while pregnant. Had my husband written this review, he would have been much more critical, as he was the one who had to deal with it, make all the adjustments, etc. 452501

The box was man handled by a UPS driver. The first delivery attempt was left on the truck because the driver said he needed a 2nd person to pick it up. The 2nd driver the next day did it solo. I didn't notice the box damaged. The second delivery seems much better. I'll see if it survives the 1st load. 462936

I bought this product for the width and the ramp. I carry a generator from my house to the deer lease 120 mi one way, Sportsman model 7500 dual fuel, weighing about 270 lbs. The first carrier I ordered made it there just fine, then upon returning home, I noticed that the carrier was sagging bad. I contacted etrailer and they immediately sent a replacement. The replacement did not even make it 10 miles on paved roads in the city before it started to bend. Terrible product, the squaring tubing that the designed used is too thin of gauge, i cant imagine what would happen if someone tried to haul the rated capacity of 500 lbs. Pictures of both carriers attached. 326974

I'm giving this product a 4 star because on the internet it said that it will be a 50 inch and on the box says 48 inch I do like the way it's built strong and looks nice I have not tested yet because my Mobility scooter it's a 60-inch if I turn the gear then it will be a 50 inch I thought it would be the perfect fit but the inside measurements are exactly 48 inch I will have to add 5 or 6 inch to make a perfect fit I recommend this product but make sure that your Mobility scooter or wheelchair not longer then 48 inch. 466218

I got my carrier in rapid time. I took it out of the box, and went through the instructions for assembly. It went together with very little effert . What I like about this unit is it is made light enough to handle, yet heavy enough to do the job. I recommend that after you get it assembled that you get a little help in installing it into your hitch receiver. I did it alone and took me a little more effert then I wanted but being a rather large man I did ok. The ramp works great, it allows me to load and carry my 26 inch snow blower from my house to my other jobs I have down town without having to hook my trailer up to the truck. It is wide enough and long enough to fit this blower, which is a 2 stage, and to heavy for me to lift. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to be able to haul an item that is to heavy to lift into the back of your truck, yet you don't need a full blown trailer, especially in the winter time. Easy to put together, and to use, plus when you are done it folds up right next to your vehicle, which lets allows you the plus of not having to take it off when not in use. 324892

Wanted to try one of these for my Ariens Deluxe 28 snowblower. Wheeling the blower down ramps out of my truck bed is at least slightly precarious and I can't afford a trailer, so I figured I'd give this a shot. Assembly was simple enough. It's heavy, but I managed to get it assembled and into the hitch myself. The rack sits a ways out from the hitch itself, but that's a consequence of its 5" depth...when it's folded to the up position, it does not touch my bumper or tailgate. My snowblower weighs about 235lbs, so within half of the rack's rated capacity. The rack itself probably weighs 60-70lbs, so I've got an overall ~350lbs hanging off my trailer hitch. Because the rack itself is a ways out from the hitch, the effective load (F*r) is probably closer to 500-600lbs. My Class IV hitch is rated for 650lbs tongue load, so it should be just fine, especially considering the safety factors engineered into things like hitches. Today was my first day driving around with the snowblower loaded on it. I drove gently and didn't have any issues. My confidence in the unit will likely grow as the winter goes on and it resists any bending. The unit as a whole does sag slightly with the blower loaded up (see picture), but that's probably more to do with slop in the system than the unit itself. The grating is slippery, especially in the wet/snow, so be mindful. I ziptied some old car floor mats to the center of the ramp pieces for some foot traction. Don't forget to account for the added width from the skids if you're planning to use this for a snowblower. I bought this knowing I'd have to rest the skids up on the rails. Get your tie-downs right and you'll be fine. 459040

I am extremely disappointed in this product ...first hole for the pin was off had to re drill it to get pin to work...second when I put scooter on the ramp the mesh gave way creating a hole the wheel fell in....I paid extra for shipping because I needed it quickly but that was negated with the poor quality...I guess I will make due with what was shipped but people need to beware of the CHINEESE crap on the market. As a result I won't recommend this product nor will I buy from you again Again for the record this product is JUNK. 407293

overall, not a bad product. could be better in its fit and finish. The ramp is a little heavy and awkward if your disabled, and the pin chains do break as has been mentioned. I replaced the pins with better ones from a hardware store. This is best used with an suv or pickup as it has some weight. Our Nissan Quest was NOT up to the task of putting a 250-300 lb scooter on it. The aforementioned vehicles with a proper hitch (preferably PU/SUV with class4, 2inch hitch) would do best and loading items that do not have leading and trainling wheels/arms like my wifes electric scooter. a small 4 wheel electric chair perhaps, mowers, tiller, small 4-wheeler would be great choices. It needs a bit of height off the ground so it does not scrap. (ours did constantly because of a very soft suspension). The locking arm(s) are a little awkward, but servicable. The ramp has the lip from the frame to 'jump' over, so a small ramp like a door sill to make a smooth transition would be welcome for small wheeled items, large 10-12 inch wheels should have no problem with angles or the blunt frame edge of the ramp. Overall a good value depending on what you are hauling, and with what you are hauling it with. For the money, its a good size with long ramp. I would NOT recommend using it with an HD jazzy scooter with trailing arms and center drive wheels. If you have a machine that is just front and rear wheel setup, you should be ok. I stress this because of personal experience. This was replaced by a Bruno chariot lift because, (1) it got hit by a bad driver and bent out of usable condition, (2) our vehicle required a different setup to carry our heavy item. With care and attention to detail, a person should be able to get years of service. Has lots of holes and frame work with to tie onto or use straps. I am including a frame picture of scooter to know what to avoid... 304831

Very fast delivery, two days. Very simple to assemble. The instruction pictures have the carrier assembled opening into the street and not towards the curb. Here in Pa it is illegal to park against on going traffic, the ramp should be on the passenger side. This was an easy fix while assembling. Happy with construction. I will be rebuilding the anti-tilt locking bracket since it was welded crooked and throws off the level of the platform. I will also add extra welds to the bottom square tubing near the weep holes. In all very satisfied with etrailer.com and will purchase from again. Thanks 172780

Item arrived as scheduled. I checked to make sure it was all there, all but a small pin was there. I set the unit out on floor and proceeded to assemble it, it was an easy job to get assembled. I then put the entire unit on the back of my 2014 RAM. it was a little heavy, but all went well and it is now on the rear of my truck awaiting the new recreational scooter that we just purchased. when it arrives, I will update, possibly with pictures. I currently rate it a 5 star unit. Thank you for the excellent service. 289666

The people at e trailer are so friendly and work with the customers to solve the problems. My association with this company sans two months. In October I ordered this carrier . It was delivered quite fast. but I could not assemble it for quite some time due to lack of help . Then I discovered that the item was damaged. The company sent me the replacement but it was the wrong item. The third carrier was received.. The carrier was quite easy to Assemble. Make no mistake it takes two people . The video does not mention that let alone stress that point. We worked with the carrier on the ground. We laid it obits side with he ramp raised up in the vertical position to atach the base to the platform. This will be less strain on the back. The video shows one man lifting it and attaching it to the hitch receiver!!!! have another person help you lift it and insert the carrier in to the receiver. The ramp is simple to extend. Be careful of your fingers getting skinned or caught in the hinge. Lifting the platform to the closed position is quite simple, but be carful it will not fall on to the back of the vehicle. The anti-sway attachment makes the carrier quite stable. The carrier is attached to 2014 Honda CRV. We have used a couple of times sofar. Secure the scooter with straps . 163622

What great service! I ordered my wheel chair carrier to we could transport a life long friend who has fallen victim to MS. I ordered at 6pm and paid the nominal fee to get it in 3-5 business days, at 10 am the next morning it was on my front door step, WOW! It is a great product, well built and easy to use. The only down side I experienced was that the wobble bracket isn't very universal, it doesn't work with my hitch receiver. However I saved almost $200 over what a local dealer wanted so I can get one that works for my needs. I have had an unsurpassed experience with the product and company! I'll be back! 136518

Great product! Easy install, no headaches, all pieces accounted for. Arrived in 2 days! What more can you ask for. One thing only that upset me is that the carrier i purchased stated 30"x50" which i NEEDED it to be 30" wide, and when i got it all installed and measured it's 28.5" and the box states 28.5" which is not the measurements i needed. Therefore i wouldn't of bought it knowing that it wasn't actually 30" wide inside the carrier. Other than that it shall make a great tool to help me provide a great snow removal service. 452059

The reason for this model because the aluminum models did not hold up as well as this steel model, easy to use, found some nice pins w/ cable at the hardware store for a secure support of our handycap scooter.

Intended to use this to carry my snowblower for the winter. It was well under the supposed recommended weight for this thing so I figured it would be easy. Within the first two weeks, the metal grating where the snowblower sits began to break apart leaving large holes that the wheels would sink through. By the end of the first month, all of the metal pins had snapped and I had to use zip ties to keep the sides from falling over into the road while driving (happened on multiple occasions as the pieces broke). By the end of the second month, the majority of the metal had rusted out and the whole thing was crumbling. I threw it away. This was the most expensive piece of cheap garbage I've ever wasted my money on. Don't do it. The UC500XL is twice the cost because it isn't assembled out of recycled cans. 582384

  • Inside Dimensions of MaxxTow # MT70260 Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier
  • The inside dimensions of the MaxxTow # MT70260 30 x 50 Wheelchair Carrier are 48 inches long by 28 inches wide by 5 inches deep. You can see this in the photo I've edited for you. These and the other relevant dimensions are also listed on the product description page which I've also linked for you. If your snow blower is just a bit under 28 inches wide, it should just fit. You can see a product demonstration video by clicking the provided link.

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Transporting a 30 inch Wide Snowblower
  • You would need something wider, check out the 32x48 Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier # PS10401-10402. This carrier is slightly wider to fit your 30 inch wide snow blower and has a loading ramp. This carrier has a floor dimension of 31-3/4 inches wide by 47-3/4 inches long which you would want to compare to the dimensions of your snow blower. Check out the review video I attached for this product. The useable dimensions of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 is only 28...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier to Transport Permobil C300 Power Chair That Weighs 350-lbs
  • I contacted Permobil to find out the weight of their C300 power chair and it weighs 350-lbs including the batteries. We do indeed offer several ramped carriers that will have the capacity for this chair and that also will fit a 2-inch hitch. Since I do not know your vehicle or hitch I suggest you first take a look at the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance regarding its tongue weight (TW) capacity. (TW is the downward force on the vehicle frame from whatever is attached to it.) Your...

  • Is the Ramp Removable on MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier for 2-Inch Hitches # MT70260
  • According to my contact at MaxxTow the folding ramp on their 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier for 2-Inch Hitches # MT70260 can be removed with a wrench or socket. The ramp mounting points are secured with nylon lock nuts. I also checked with the team at ProSeries, who offers a similar folding-ramp cargo carrier # PS10401-10402. The ramp on this unit can also be removed, but this too would require essentially partial dis-assembly of the carrier using tools. It is not intended to provide any sort...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier to Carry Snow Blower with 2011 Dodge Ram
  • The MaxxTow carrier you mentioned has an inside-the-rails dimension of 48 x 28 inches. Your blower might fit, but it would be a very tight fit. The carrier is relatively inexpensive, and would be best suited for occasional use. A carrier like the Pro Series # PS10401-10402 would be a much better choice. The carrier is very highly rated by our customers, and the roomy 47-3/4 inch long x 31-3/4 inch wide carrier platform would easily handle both the size and the weight of your snow blower. The...

  • How Much Does MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 60" Long Ramp # MT70260 Weigh

  • Recommended Wheelchair Carrier for 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
  • You can use an adapter like the Brophy # HTAD in order to use 2 inch hitch-mounted accessories with the 1-1/4 inch receiver on your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer. An important factor to keep in mind when using this or any other hitch adapter is that it will reduce the tongue weight capacity by 50%. This means that if the trailer hitch on your Mountaineer has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, it will be reduced to 100 pounds when using the adapter. The MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier...

  • The Best Trailer Hitch for 2012 Ford Escape to Use Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • For your 2012 Ford Escape I recommend Curt trailer hitch # 13650. When installed on a 2012 Ford Escape we found that it measured 1 inch from the center of hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper. I have linked a video showing installation and the measurement for you. The MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70260 measures 4-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up. This means that it will clear the rear bumper on your 2012 Ford Escape....

  • How Much Does the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 Weigh
  • I recently purchased MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 for my step father and in the package it weighs just under 100 pounds. The packaging does not weigh all that much so subtract 5 pounds or so and the carrier itself weighs about 95 pounds.

  • Recommended Heavy-Duty Cargo Carrier with a Ramp
  • The closest hitch mounted cargo carrier we have to the UC500 is the MaxxTow # MT70260. This carrier measures 30 by 50 inches with a 60 inch ramp. The weight capacity is 500 pounds. I've attached a video for you as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier for a Pride Maxima 3 Scooter and 2006 Dodge Caravan
  • It looks like the Pride Maxima 3 can weight 176 pounds WITHOUT the batteries. You will need to know the total weight of the scooter. The combined weight of the scooter and the carrier cannot exceed the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. It looks like 350 pounds is the highest capacity for trailer hitches for your 2006 Dodge Caravan. Check the hitch for a sticker to determine what its capacity is. If you need to add a hitch I have included a link to the Class III options we carry...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For Large Frame Mobility Scooter
  • We don't have a carrier with ramp that will allow for that big a scooter. Our biggest option is the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier w/ 60" Long Ramp - 2" Hitches - Folding - Steel - 500 lbs # MT70260. Your best option would be to use the Let's Go Aero TwinTube U-Build-It Slide-Out Hitch Rack # HMK901 and create something customized for your application. This carrier has a weight capacity of 300 lbs, so you would be able to use up to 50 lbs of materials for your custom carrier. This...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier To Carry A Small 4 Wheeler
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier w/ Pivoting Ramp - 2" Hitches - Extruded Aluminum - 500 lbs, # MT70100, will work to haul whatever you need as long as the weight capacity and dimensions fit. You of course will be limited by the tongue weight capacity of your vehicle and the hitch you use as well. I pulled up your Kawasaki prairie 360 online and the wet weight is listed at 643.9 lbs. If this is accurate for your 4 wheeler, we don't have a cargo carrier that will handle that weight.

  • Shank Measurements For MaxxTow Wheelchair Carriers # MT70260, # MT70106
  • For the MaxxTow Wheelchair Carriers # MT70260 and # MT70106, the length of the shank from the center of the pinhole to the closest edge of the carrier when in the folded position is 4-3/4 inches. Just to be sure, I contacted my source at MaxxTow and he confirmed this measurement.

  • Availability of Hitch-Mount Ramped Scooter Carrier With 60-Inch Platform
  • The MaxxTow 30x50 Ramped Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 that you referenced has a platform that measures 30- x 50-inches, and its ramp measures 60-inches long. This and all other ramped carriers we offer are viewable using the link to your right. This 50-inch platform length is the longest we have available. This carrier's 60-inch ramp is also the longest ramp on any of these items. Please note that these carriers vary considerably in their weight capacities, ranging from 230- to 500-lbs....

  • Hitch-Mount Cargo Carrier for Toyota Tundra for Use Transporting 150-lb Outboard Motor
  • Since I do not know what class of hitch you have on your Tundra I suggest you start by checking its safety sticker to confirm its tongue weight rating, which is the downward force applied to the hitch. As an example, a 2013 Toyota Tundra can be equipped with any of three classes of 2-inch trailer hitch: Class III, Class IV and Class V. Please see the link provided. The good news is that any of these should have enough capacity for the weight of your 150-lb motor and stand plus the weight...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a Pride Victory Scooter and Hitch for 2007 Suburu Outback Wagon
  • As long as your 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon is not the Sport model, the Draw-Tite # 75560 will work well to carry your Pride Victory Sport Scooter. I have a brief installation video of this hitch on your vehicle. The MaxxTow 30x50 Carrier # MT70260 has a 60 inch ramp and weighs 99-lbs. The combined weight of your scooter, complete with the batteries and the weight of the carrier is under the 400-lb rating that your hitch has. You will need to check your owners manual to see verify your...

  • Will MaxxTow 30x50-Inch Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 Fit on 2013 Toyota Highlander With 2-Inch Hitch
  • The MaxxTow 30x50-Inch Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260 will extend back from the hitch pin hole 4-3/4 inches when in the upright folded storage position. You can measure the distance on your Highlander hitch from the hitch pin hole back to the rear-most part of the vehicle to determine if the 7-1/2 inches of clearance is adequate to clear the back of the vehicle. When in the down position the nearest edge of the carrier will be 14 inches from the hitch pin hole. All of the hitches we offer...

  • Recommended Folding Cargo Carrier With Ramp
  • The Flip-up Stinger for Scooter Carriers RFUB has a measurement from center of hitch pin to upright when folded of 6 inches. This will most likely be too close because the part you reference is similar to our # MT70275 carrier that measures 7 inches tall. This also would require some customization and you'd need to be careful with steel and aluminum contact points if the powder coat or paint were to fail. That stinger is intended to be a replacement option for the Trailer Hitch Mounted...

The carrier measures 50 long x 30 wide x 6-1/2 tall. This carrier has a ramp as you mentioned. The ramp measures 28 inches wide and is 60 inches long. When folded down the distance form the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier is 14 inches. This carrier comes with an anti-wobble device...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2015 Lincoln MKZ
  • For your 2015 Lincoln MKZ, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24897. Unlike the Curt model that is also confirmed to fit your vehicle, the installation of this hitch will allow you to trim and reinstall the underbody panel/fascia for accommodation with the hitch receiver and crosstube. On the Curt model, this panel is completely removed and cannot be reinstalled. This Class I hitch will use existing holes in your Lincoln's frame for a no-drill installation....

  • Can MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp Fold Up for Storage
  • The MaxxTow aluminum cargo carrier with ramp # MT70275 is a fixed carrier which means it does not fold up or tilt. We do have some carriers with ramps that fold up but they are steel and not aluminum: # MT70106 and # MT70260. The only difference between these two is the length of each ramp. I have linked video reviews of these carriers for you. Curt aluminum carrier # C18100 folds up but doesn't have a ramp but if a ramp is not required then this carrier is another option.

The widest folding cargo carrier with a ramp that we offer is the MaxxTow 30x50 Cargo Carrier, # MT70106. The interior dimensions of this carrier are 48 inches long x 28 inches wide x 5 inches deep.

  • Thank you for your order for MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier # MT70260. I am pleased you are happy with the purchase and I will certainly let Lexus know how much you appreciate her help! I recommend the Let's Go Aero Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 since it will not only secure your chair carrier from theft but also help reduce any rattling and motion while you're driving. If you're most concerned with resistance to corrosion and don't mind giving up the anti-rattle...
