need to put on hitch for wheelchair carrier

Where can I get the right hitch to put on the rear of my travel trailer to use to mount a scooter (large motorized wheelchair) carrier.

JudyMusic, Your TT square tube bumper isn't designed to carry any load, mine is rated at 70#, not really enough for two bicycles. You need to find a good welder/hitch shop and see if they can come up with something to extend your trailer frame and make a custom rack. Remember that the more weight you put on the rear of the trailer, the less weight you have on the tongue, you want to keep about 10% of the trailer weight as tongue weight or your trailer will sway badly. Be careful and find a good hitch shop to help you out.

Cruzbill is right on. Do not risk your mobility on your bumper. Go to a fabricator or mobility shop and have it properly attached to the frame. It better balances the load, prevents " chair" bounce, and is more secure.
