Are you talking about a mobility scooter? If so, you need to be cognizant of how much the scoter weighs. A 5,000# hitch is only rated for a 500# tong weight and that is with a standard drawbar in the receiver tube. The platform for the scooter will extend out nearly 24". I know from experience that adding that type of extension will put additional strain on the hitch and the RV frame rails. In my case I had a four-bike rack in the receiver. The whole thing rack and bikes probably weighed 250# on a 5,000# hitch yet that weight ended up bending the frame extensions on my class A motorhome.
