You have your mobility scooter and have the freedom and independence you love. But have you found that it lacks the cargo space you need? Challenger Mobility Scooter Trailer Review explores the features and pros and cons of this little trailer.
Maybe you’re out shopping or enjoying the day at an amusement park and need a place to store items you brought with you or purchased. But alas, you have a basket, but it’s not large enough. The Challenger Mobility Scooter Trailer is a solution. What a great added feature for your scooter.
The Challenger Mobility Trailer is specially made for the Pride Mobility Scooter but is compatible with most mobility scooters with a rear seat bracket with horizontal holes. Measuring 11.5″ (w) x 11.5″ (d) X 22″ (l), it’s large enough to carry some personal items yet small enough to pull behind your scooter.
A red nylon cover is included to keep your items out of the sun on a summer day and out of the rain if the weather turns bad. The load capacity is 66 lbs allowing not only storing small light items but heavier items as well. Mounted reflectors add to its safety-making it easier to see the scooter at night. It comes with large wheels that are 16″ x 1.75″, lending to a smooth ride.
So all that sounds great, but what about the downside. There are a few – the trailer doesn’t come with a lock, so be sure to secure your items with your own lock. It does take some getting used to back up, but with practice, it can be done. The assembly has been said to be difficult because the instructions lack clarity. If you run into difficulties while assembling, there is a video that shows you how – sometimes it’s easier when you see assembly before and during attempting to do so yourself.
