Mobility devices can be expensive, but the MT 3000 mobility carrier is an inexpensive piece of equipment that can support up to 350 pounds, meaning it can accommodate most of the units on the market. The under frame of this unit is made from a heavy duty powder-coated steel designed to last a lifetime. The deck of the MT3000 is made from high grade powder-coated aluminum that increases stability but reduces the overall weight of the system. Both the deck and the ramp feature a slip-resistant, black grip tape to make loading and unloading that much easier. With this system you just attach the carrier to your hitch and you’re ready to go! No assembly is required — it comes directly from the factory pre-assembled. This TrekAway mobility carrier allows you to add an optional Class II hitch adapter for 1.25 inch hitch receivers or an optional High Height adapter for vehicles with less clearance.
