Q. How much does the Scoota-Trailer ™ weigh?
A. 285 lbs. for Small trailer and 385 lbs. for Large trailer and only places
35 - 75 lbs. directly onto your tow vehicle's trailer hitch.
If you choose to add the optional aluminum top, which only weighs 50 lbs.,
your total trailer weight will only increase to 335 lbs. for the Small Trailer,
making it one of the lightest enclosed transporters of mobility scooters and
power chairs in the industry. Yet, one of the most impressive features is it's
600 lb. carrying capacity! (And, at this time we are not aware of any
power chair or scooter that weighs that much!)
Q. How much effort does it take to lift the loading gate to travel position?
A. Very little!
In fact, with the tailgate in the lowered position, it will require lifting
only nine pounds (which is less than most vans equipped with spring
assisted side loading ramps).
Q. How do I load my power chair or scooter onto the trailer?
A. The ScootaTrailer™ is designed with a very low profile.....only
nine inches from the ground to the trailer floor. And, it is designed
to allow a low center of gravity. Therefore, the angle of approach is
very slim. Simply guide your unit while it powers itself into travel
position as you walk beside it. You may back it on or go forward.
The choice is yours. It will not affect the towing of your unit.
Using the tie down rings and straps provided, secure your unit so that
it remains stationary during transport.
Q. Are there any chairs or scooters that will not load on the ScootaTrailer™ ?
A. To our knowledge there is no scooter or power chair that is too short
coupled, too long, or too low that would cause it's ground clearance
to scrape or keep it from loading. (And, keep in mind, there is a larger
unit available for those really large all terrain scooters and chairs.
Or, perhaps, you simply wish to give yourself some extra room to
upgrade your scooter at a later date.)
Q. Can it be towed at normal highway speeds?
The ScootaTrailer™ is equipped with high speed bearings and E-Z lube
greaseable spindles. Also, the tire rating is a considerably higher
capacity than is required. And, best of all, the trailer's unique design
will never allow itself to sway behind any vehicle at any speed,
Q. Will the trailer bounce around while being towed?
A. No! Actually, the axle that is supporting your scooter is a soft, rubber
ride suspension axle called a torflex, and will adjust to road conditions.
Q. Are there any electric scooters that will not load on the Scoota-Trailer ™ ?
A. To our knowledge there is no scooter that is too short coupled, too long,
or too low that would cause it's ground clearance to scrape or keep it
Q. Can this trailer be towed behind small vehicles? Examples: Chevrolet
Cavalier; Chrysler PT Cruiser; Ford Focus; Honda Accord; VW Beetle;
Large Motorcycles with a Hitch; etc.
A. Yes. If there is a trailer hitch available for ANY vehicle you wish to
tow with, whether it's a sub-compact, full size, or SUV, it is capable
of towing the Scoota-Trailer ™ . (Remember! The trailer weighs 285 lbs.,
and only places 35 - 75 lbs, not including the weight of your scooter,
directly onto your tow vehicle's trailer hitch.) The total weight, including
your chair or scooter, would never exceed 900 lbs. total weight.
Therefore, ANY class one trailer hitch on ANY vehicle is enough
hitch! Yes you can also use a Class II or Class III Hitch with a Two
Q. If I purchase a ScootaTrailer™ can I still park in handicap parking areas?
A. To answer this question, we asked several people the primary reason
they use handicap parking in the first place. Simply put: Most answered
it was so they would not have too far to walk to the front door. Obviously,
if they were hauling a scooter anyway, they would be riding it to the front
door; not walking. So, handicap parking would not be as much an issue.
New Handicap Packing is now larger to accommodate mobility trailers.
Q. Will I be able to see the trailer when I get ready to back up? And, how
difficult is it to back up?
A. The trailer's tailgate is tall enough that it is visible through your rear view
mirror. While it can be frustrating to back since it is a small trailer, it does
however, back very similar to a 4' x 8' trailer. And with a little practice you
may be amazed at how quickly you catch on. Another point of view may be
this: Why back up in the first place? The next time you're in a shopping
mall parking lot, pull slightly ahead into the next space so that you're
headed forward when it's time for you to leave. And remember, the next
time you pull into your driveway you may simply want to use the swivel
jack and caster wheel that comes on every ScootaTrailer™. After
disconnecting it from your tow vehicle, easily roll the unit into your
garage. Now you're ready for your next trip.
Q. How can I get more information or how do I go about ordering a
ScootaTrailer ™ ?
A. We've also made this really simple.
