Honda Metropolitan Scooter

I just purchased a new Honda Metropolitan Scooter. I want to carry along the scooter on my 2016 Forester Class C. So I have been looking into carriers and covers for the scooter.

I sure would appreciate any help in choosing both, especially a cover for the scooter when carrying. E-Trailer seems to have a stable carrier in the $ 400 range. I travel alone so the scooter fits me. Many thanks for your help.

Hmmm...I'd get a 2x12 ramp and roll that thing right thru the side door!

I have used a versa haul hitch carrier for years to carry dirt bikes up to 650cc. I would think something like this would be great for a scooter, IF you want to use the trailer hitch for it.

Harbor Freight sales a 500 lb. Capacity Aluminum Mobility Wheelchair and Scooter Carrier that attaches to the receiver hitch if you have one. Price is $169.99 and you should be able to use one of Harbor Freights 20% off coupons brings the price down to $136.01 .
They also have a 400 lb. Receiver-Mount Motorcycle Carrier $124.99 that looks pretty nice and should be able to use the 20% off coupon on it.
The 20% off coupon is easy to find.
Both carriers also have a ramp to help load and unload the scooter.
Use the Ratcheting Tie Downs to hold the scooter in place and cover with a tarp. Be sure to use straps to hold the tarp tight in place.
You can look up the carriers on line by googling Harbor Freight and typing in carrier in the search window.
Good luck.
