Will the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24984 Work with My Motorized Mobility Unit on My 2021 Mazda 3?


Will this hitch work with a motorized mobility lift?


Expert Reply:

When it comes to using a motorized mobility lift on your 2021 Mazda 3, there are a few things to consider. The first is tongue weight capacity (the vertical load limit). The Draw-Tite Hitch - 1-1/4" # 24984 has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. As long as your mobility lift does not exceed 200 pounds, it is usable with the Draw-Tite. Unfortunately, we do not carry a hitch receiver that offers more tongue weight capacity.

Another thing to consider is bumper clearance and ground clearance. This is important to make sure that the lift does not interfere with the rear bumper or scrape the ground during transport. In order for your mobility unit to fit, there needs to be enough distance from the center of the lift's pinhole to the closest part of the unit that will interfere with the rear bumper as well as enough distance from the ground to the receiver. Unfortunately, we do not have the exact distance from the center pinhole of the Draw-Tite hitch to the outside surface of your rear bumper or the ground clearance height, but I attached a great picture from our install team that will provide you perspective with how close the hitch installs to the rear bumper.

Also, one of the things to consider is your vehicle model. The Draw-Tite Hitch # 24984 only fits hatchback models. We do have a similar model that fits the sedan model. That is the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24982. Sadly, we do not have any images or videos that show the bumper clearance or ground clearance measurements.
