Mobility Scooter Carrier


New Member
Mar 15, 2021
I am planning the purchase of a Model Y in the next week or so. I am also facing the possibility of needing a mobility scooter in the next year. If I wind up buying a scooter, I will want to use a carrier that mounts to the trailer hitch receiver. Reading through the manual for the Model Y, I find two weight limits: 160 lbs for vertical loads and 350 lbs for trailers. Which limit would apply to a carrier for a mobility scooter?

Also, how much would carrying a scooter behind the car interfere with the car’s systems?
