Trailer Hitch Capacity For A Scooter Carrier On A 2018 Nissan Rogue


I have a 2018 Nissan Rogue. I need to add a trailer hitch to the SUV so I can put on a carrier for my mobility scooter. Just the carrier type that has a ramp and straps down once you run the scooter up the ramp. Id also like a swing-away arm if that is doable on this vehicle. I read something about tongue weight and got confused as to whether the whole thing is even possible. Can you advise?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The maximum tongue load is 110lbs on your 2018 Nissan Rogue per the owners manual. This means the scooter carrier you would use will need to weight less than that to be safely transported on the vehicle.

While trailer hitches like our own Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98846 will fit your Nissan Rogue and has a capacity up to 525lbs, that is always limited by the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations. You will want to consider a different vehicle for this specific purpose if your carrier is not within the 110lbs of maximum tongue load for this vehicle.
