Travel Mobility Scooters
As the name suggests, travel scooters are the most portable type of scooter, disassembling to fit in the most compact of automobile trunks. Still, although travel scooters disassemble into pieces as light as 22 lbs., they’re no lightweight when it comes to performance! With typical weight capacities between 250 and 350 lbs., speeds up to 5 mph, and driving ranges between 7 and 15 miles, based on model.
What’s Required to Transport a Typical Travel Mobility Scooter:
Travel scooters come in 3 and 4-wheel versions. 3-wheel travel scooters are more maneuverable than 4-wheel travel scooters, turning in tighter spaces. However, 4-wheel travel scooters offer a bit more foot room than 3-wheel scooters, outdoors 4 wheel scooters are more stable on uneven ground. (however, travel scooters are not meant for exceptionally aggressive outdoor terrain).
A travel scooter may be best for you if you need:
Best indoor maneuverability
Versatility indoors and out
Exceptionally compact design
Battery range of 7 to 15 miles (varies by model)
Speeds of 5 mph or less
An excellent value!
