MOTORCYCLE/WHEELCHAIR RACK

Hi
I have been looking for a few months now for my first motorhome. I need to carry a 205kg wheelchair on the back. Am looking for an older coach built or even oplder A class spending around 9K
I would like to hear from anyone who carries this sort of weight sucessfully and has been to the weighbridge so they know they are not liable for a fine.
All advice appreciated as this is getting beyond a joke.
Julian

Jools, you may find that my Soverign Stirling Amber three wheeled scooter which is light and easily moved into the inside of my coachbuilt motorhome by my carer, meets your needs. Its range is limited by the size of its batteries, but I have found it has been the best answer for me. The cost about £800. But it does work, the Easylifter platform that I fitted on the rear for my powerchair, has difficulties in that when it is wet the twenty minutes while we strap the chair to the platform proves too much of a hassle.
If you need any more help email [email protected]

That sounds a lot to hang on the back, even a shop rider doesn't weigh that! Nevertheless I would have thought some of the garage models might be capable of carrying that kind of load. I probable carry about 150/200kgms of disability equipment if I take everything on a long trip but I distribute this fairly evenly over the whole chassis. I have a payload of 700kg and come close to overloading the back axle at times (weigh bridge figures) On these occasions I don't fill up the fresh water tank and dump waste before moving off. Sorry cannot be of further help, you may get more info by posting a question about weights carried in garages on say the Tech Forum?
