The Freedom Trailer is a trailer specifically built to carry wheelchairs and mobility scooters. This trailer can carry virtually any powered wheelchair or mobility scooter because it can easily carry 400 pounds. The most important feature is that it will only place approximately 50 pounds on your vehicle’s trailer hitch. This means it can be safely and properly towed behind any vehicle, even a Smart-Car or motorcycle.
Compared to three other products on the market today, the Freedom Trailer is much less expensive. Other “Scooter Trailers” or “Wagons” or “Lifts on a Cart”, are significantly more costly and then even have less warranty.
Don’t be fooled into thinking you need or want a covered trailer. Some of the challenges with a covered trailer include:
The lid surface is shiny causing sun blindness and a hot surface
If the lid has snow on it, it’s too heavy to lift or will not raise
Sometimes the lid freezes shut because of the rubber handles and gasket
The red bottom color is not attractive or neutral in esthetic appearance
With any Freedom Trailer purchase, we will provide you a FREE weather cover for your powered wheelchair or mobility scooter. This is a heavy duty cover with a durable zip cord around the bottom. It will not blow off during travel. Our heavy duty cover has a felt liner which protects your chair, as well as adding weight to the cover to reduce blowing. This cover has a $175 value, but with a Freedom Trailer we will give you one free. It easily stores in the built in cargo box on your Freedom Trailer.

As you can see and read here, the Freedom Wheelchair and Scooter Trailer is the premier trailer for carrying powered wheelchairs and scooters. Every trailer is hand made to order by skilled craftsman here in the USA. A family owned business for many years, Grand Lakes Fabricators has made equipment such motorcycle trailers, wheelchair carrier platform lifts, and even a handicap accessible lift for RVs and motor homes.
MIDWAY | Greg Tesh grew tired of turning away customers because his family-owned trailer hitch business didn’t make a product that power wheelchair and car dealers kept calling to ask him for, so he decided to start making one.
In fact, no one was making a hitch or trailer that could be attached to small or midsize cars that was safe to haul mobility scooters and power wheelchairs.
“They wanted us to install hitches on the back of a vehicle for these mobility chairs,” Tesh said. “Eighty-five percent of the vehicles on the road today cannot accept a lift or a hitch on the back. As the economy continues to decline and the gas crisis continues, people want a vehicle that gets 30 to 40 miles per gallon. These cars cannot accept hitches.”
Tesh’s answer to the problem was ScootaTrailer, a compact trailer that can haul any mobility scooter or power wheelchair behind cars like a Ford Focus or Honda Civic. Large trailers are too cumbersome for parking at shopping centers and grocery stores and too high off the ground for easy loading and unloading of wheelchairs, Tesh said. In addition, everyone with mobility issues does not qualify through Medicare, Medicaid or other insurance companies for a large conversion van.
Tesh told his idea to his brother and business partner, Keith Tesh, at Tesh and Sons Trailer Hitch Center, who in turn drew the prototype for the trailer in 2002. After some revisions, the ScootaTrailer was being built and shipped from their business on Payne Road by 2004.
“The dealers selling chairs said we would have a solid moneymaker if it worked,” he said.
In late September, the brothers completed the process to make ScootaTrailer a limited liability corporation and hired Martin Sinozich, a product coordinator from Greensboro, to help market their product nationwide.
Fred Tesh, the brothers’ grandfather, began Tesh & Sons as a traditional trailer hitch business in 1948. The brothers learned at the side of their grandfather and father, Kenneth Tesh. Business was brisk for many years until Tesh noticed the office phone wasn’t ringing quite as much in late 2001. They soon realized why.
Hitches had traditionally been an after-manufacturing option installed once someone bought a truck, van or SUV. But car manufacturers had begun making these vehicles with the hitches already attached.
So the idea for ScootaTrailer couldn’t have come at a better time. The Teshes needed a new product if their 60-year-old business was going to survive.
The Teshes have taken their ScootaTrailer to trade shows in Atlanta and Nevada where it was well-received. Customers do not order the trailers directly from the Teshes. The Teshes sell their product to power wheelchair and scooter dealers and some car dealerships who specialize in vehicle conversions for the handicapped.
Most of the ScootaTrailers sold are paid for through workers comp claims, the Veterans Administration, vocational rehabilitation or the U.S. Department of Developmental Disabilities.
Fully equipped, the ScootaTrailer sells for about $4,500 or with less options about $2,400. To date, about 600 ScootaTrailers have been sold. The Teshes said they hope Sinozich is able to take ScootaTrailer to the next level with a marketing plan.
“We’d like to sell 1,200 a year,” Tesh said.
ScootaTrailer is easy to use and has taken mobility limitations into consideration, Greg Tesh said of the design. For example, the ramp used to load and unload the chairs uses pistons so the door can be pushed up easily without bending over by gently nudging it with the foot.
The basic model weighs about 285 pounds or 360 if the optional aluminum, diamond plate cover is purchased. The cover also uses pistons for easy opening and shutting. The trailer is 48 inches wide and 60 inches long. The platform is only eight inches off the ground.
“Twenty-four million wheelchairs and scooters are in use in America,” Greg Tesh said. “About three-fourths of the power wheelchair and scooter users would not leave their home because they have no way to transport their scooter or wheelchair. Our feeling is everyone should be able to get out using a ScootaTrailer. We’re not only passionate about our product, but compassionate about people.”

Access Mobility Equipment is pleased to present to you, The Scoota Trailer.
Today’s powered wheelchairs and mobility scooters are being made larger and heavier to accomodate larger batteries, larger users, and for added user comfort. That is great while you are using the scooter or electric wheelchair. But if you have a smaller car or vehicle with a lower tongue weight rating for a hitch, you find yourself unable to take your chair with you when you go on outtings.
The answer to this problem is The Scoota Trailer.
Scoota Trailer is a specialized trailer designed specifically for this purpose. Your Scoota Trailer will allow you to take your chair with you anywhere you go. It will provide the absolute best transport solution for your chair because it will protect it from vibration, shaking, weather, theft, and it is very easy to use. Scoota Trailer is so lightweight that once disconnected from your vehicle, it can be pushed with one hand using the flip down jack stand with swivel caster wheel.
Every Scoota Trailer is hand crafted in the factory with over 30 years of custom trailer building experience. Each weld is inspected for quality. Every detail is checked. Your Scoota Trailer comes with a warranty and we will service it at your location for your lifetime in the unlikely event you should need service or repair.
Your Scoota Trailer will have a gas strut assisted rear loading ramp so that you will be able to raise and lower the loading ramp with one hand, or foot. Once you get the ramp in motion, the assisted ramp will continue to raise and lower itself.
Each Scoota Trailer is constructed with a Torflex torsion axle. This type of axle provides excellent shock absorbtion and a smooth ride. This may not sound like a big deal but it is very important to the life expectancy of the electronics of your powered wheelchair or mobility scooters. These devices have electronic control modules to control speed, turning, breaking, etc. When they bounce and vibrate on the back of an unsupported vehicle lift, we see a lot of related repairs.
The floor of Scoota Trailer is covered with two tracks of no-skid material. You will maintain your footing and your chair or scooter will sit still on this material. A sprayed in rubberized liner is also available for the ultimate protection of the inside of the trailer.
There are six tie down hook locations for the two included “never tangle” rope straps. These round rope straps will never tangle. They tighten and loosen with minimal strength of one hand.
Scoota Trailers require that your vehicle only have the minimum class I trailer hitch with a 2″ ball. We can arrange to sell and install your trailer hitch for you if you would like. Our trailer coupler comes with a lock for security so no one can steal or disconnect your trailer.
The optional spare tire is full size and mounted to the side of the trailer. It is always with you and gives you peace of mind that in the event of a flat tire, you will be back on the road in a few moments. The spare tire also comes with an attractive cover. At Access Mobility Equipment, we always provide your spare tire and cover for FREE with the purchase of your trailer, a $240 value.
The optional lightweight aluminum diamond plate cover will keep your chair dry because it is 100% water proof. The lid opens and closes easily with hydraulic assisted struts. Once closed, you are able to physically lock the lid closed which makes your chair secure against theft. If you choose not to add and purchase the lid, that is okay too. We’ll provide you with a free heavy duty weather cover to give your chair protection against the elements. While not as good as the closed lid, it will at least provide your chair some protection without additional cost.
Because Scoota Trailers are hand crafted to order, we can complete some customizations of your trailer – do you have a chair with a taller headrest? No problem, we have options available for a taller inside height of the lid to accomodate.
All Scoota Trailers come completely ready for your legal use on the highways and public roads. The trailer can be pulled at full regular speed while loaded. It will have a complete lighting package that includes running, brake, turn signals, and a licence plate light. Each trailer comes with its own unigue “Certificate of Origin”, just like a new car. This is the document that you need to take to the department of motor vehicles in your state to obtain your title and tags if required (some states require title, or tags, or both – some neither).
Give us a call today so that we can discuss the details of your Scoota Trailer. Basic Scoota Trailer pricing starts on the lower end around $2600. The size of your trailer, which options you choose or require, and the size of your mobility device all effect the pricing of the trailer. We’ll need to speak to you directly to give you an exact price. We provide absolute personal customer service and we will not ask you to check out online or deal with a computer to place your order for you.

Scoota Trailer is a prime example of the old cliche` “necessity is the mother of invention”. Scoota Trailer allows people with small to mid sized vehicles to take their powered wheelchairs and electric mobility scooters with them on outtings wherever you may want to go. Before Scoota Trailer, people that owned smaller vehicles, and even some mid-large size sedans could not take their powered wheelchairs and scooters with them. These vehicles have lower tongue weight capacities, so they were unable to accept the popular hitch mounted lifts that you will notice on the back of so many vehicles on today’s highways. With smaller cargo areas, chairs cant be loaded inside either.
Scoota Trailer is changing all of that. Whether you have a compact, sub-compact, coupe, sports car, or even a tiny “Smart Car”, you can take your powered wheelchair or electric mobility scooter with you wherever you go.
Our Scoota Trailer only weighs about 285 pounds and has less than 75 pounds of tongue weight. It can be safely and easily pulled by any vehicle. The Scoota Trailer is approved for use on the highway as it is equipped with lighting, safety equipment, and even has its own VIN (vehicle identification number) and Certificate of Origin for your state’s department of motor vehicles to issue your tags and title.
Scoota Trailer is very easy to drive with. It tracks very straight and pulls easily with its TorFlex torsion suspension system. This not only reduces bouncing of the trailer, this also preserves the condition and reduces wear and tear on your scooter or wheelchair by giving it a smooth ride.
Loading your scooter or wheelchair is very easily because Scoota Trailer sits only 9″ off the ground and the rear loading ramp is assisted by a hydraulic strut. Most people can raise and lower the loading ramp with one hand. Simply guide your scooter or wheelchair up the ramp, and raise the ramp back up to close and you are ready to go.
Bad weather? No problem. Order your Scoota Trailer with the beautiful diamond plate aluminum lid and your scooter or wheelchair will never have to weather a storm. The lid is lightweight, aerodynamic and lifts easily with the hydraulic strut assistance. The lid has a water tight seal and can be locked to securely protect your scooter or wheelchair.
Scoota Trailer has 6 inside tie down locations to keep your scooter or wheelchair from moving. Two rope-pull tie downs are provided at no charge. These rope style tie downs will never tangle or twist adn there is no difficult ratchett to operate. Simply pull it tight and your scooter is secured.
Scoota Trailer is the most well equipped, and best built trailer for wheelchairs and scooters. There is no other trailer for scooters or wheelchairs made of this quality and style.
