Mobility Scooters

I'm to the point that I need a mobility scooter to enjoy parks and campgrounds. I'm looking at models that offer seating for two. I would rather have the DW ride with me than walk. I'm also hoping to haul it on a hitch mount carrier.

Is anyone else doing this? What setup did you go with? Likes, dislikes? Pics?

I use a hitch mounted carrier on my MH when not pulling a toad. The scooter and 5' ramp will fit in my toad- a Chevrolet HHR. There are a lot of places to get a carrier, I got mine at Harbor Freight. There is a store close to me. I have looked at a lot of scooters, never seen one for two people, but then I've never looked for one.

I'd rather stay away from trailering a golf cart. I'm leaning toward this one.. All Scooters : Royale 4 Dual using a carrier.

Also looking at this carrier. My hitch is rated 750/7500, so I'm thinking it should work.

Tilt-A-Rack 500ARV Plus X-Large Aluminum Scooter Carrier.

I looked at something similar to the Zappy. How do they do on gravel roads?

Most scooters do not do well on gravel. Wheels are too light...and spin.
We just scoot around the park...don't go out on main roads...and we Are always in parks...that have trails or surface roads.

Fount this for you MrJoe. Pretty cool looking video! The really neat thing is that either person can power and drive the scooter.



Here is a site in FL that sells them and other types of scooters:
Shoprider Sprinter 889-4DXD two seater heavy duty scooter

Is it standing or walking that is your problem? If you can stand for periods of time hands down I would get a Segway!

Why Glide With Segway?

I have rode...er...glided (as Segway says) these before. Awesome machines! AND they make models that can go places NO Scooter could ever dream to go (they make Segways for Hunters)
