There are many companies who manufacture and sell such a hitch.
Thanks for all of the great info.... have been reading for hours.
I hope that I am allowed to post here even though I do not have a Forest River TT.
My hubby and I almost bought one, but there was just not enough room for his wheelchair.
We ended up getting a "new" 2009 Dutchman Aerolite 25FK because the floorplan was perfect for his chair.
Now, on to why I "quoted" this message.
We purchased a wheelchair lift because we could no longer use ramps.
(Our lift will not be this large and it will have 2 actuators.)
It will be about 30" wide and 44" long.
It will have about a 5' height. (as tall as me!
It will weigh about 165lbs WITH the actuators attached.
I plan on removing both of them before travel.
Ours will be permanently welded together so no having to "assemble and dissemble" every time. (yeh)
Please bare with me....I am getting to the question.....
The only way for us to carry this with us is to load it on the back of the T.T.
And, from what I have been reading it does not sound like a good idea.
Mike, will the frame receiver hitch you posted work for this?
(The LIFT is 2" receiver ready.)
