tri-5-ron is an unknown around here
Default mobility chair lifts, hitches, etc.

Hey all, just wondering if anyone here might have some knowledge or experience, and maybe some advise, or suggestions.

My 92 y.o. grandmother is for the most part unable to walk. she gets around the house, BARELY, and must use a walker 100% of the time.
My 72 y.o. mother takes care of her.

She has a mobility chair, that so far she has refused to use. She has now gotten to the point of having no choice. We are looking to purchase a lift/ramp/carrier to mount to the rear of her car, so that the chair can be transported and useable, when going to the Dr., shopping, etc.

I have been doing some research on hitches, and they are realitively easy to find, that will fit her car. Reese, Curt, Hidden Valley, all make one.

Her car is a 1999 Buick La sabre, Limited.

I am looking at various brands, styles, of carriers that are hitch mounted, and that my mother will be able to safely, and easily operate.

So far, what I hope to find her, is one of the ramps that is electrically powered, and raises/lowers, so that my mother wont need to drive the chair up a ramp,... and then need to fold/stow the ramp.
(I don't really like the idea of her needing to bend over, lift the folding ramp, and securing it into place, before transport). I don't want her to get hurt, or mess up, and have the scooter fall off while driving.

Funds are not unlimited, otherwise it would be a simple choice of going to a retailer, and just saying "do it".The hitch will be purchased new from either a ebay retailer,, or equivalent, and I'm hoping to find a good used carrier unit on CL, or wherever.
I will be doing the hitch install, wiring, and carrier installation myself, as well as having the final say on which carrier will best suit their needs.

Any advise, experience, or suggestions will be appreciated.
