Power Chair Trransport

Does anyone have any ideas on how to transport DW's power chair? I don't think it will fit thru the TT door, as the narrowest part of the chair is 24". It is a Jazzy power chair from the Scooter Store. I would be concerned about the weight hanging from my rear bumper of the TT

How much does it weigh. Most properly installed rear receivers will hold 250-300 lbs easily.

I don't recall the weight of the power chair offhand, will have to locate the spec sheet and try to insert it into the post. I do know it weighs more than I would care to lift

When broken down can it fit in the back of the truck fore or aft of the 5th wheel?

OK, the powerchair weight without the seat is 90LBS, width is 23 3/4", length is 35 3/4". Might fit between the hitch and the toolbox, will have to measure. I am leery of boosting 90 LBS over the hitch. The truck is a 06 F250 6.0 diesel Xtra cab long bed, so the power chair may fit.The rear bumper on the TT (08 Eagle Lite 30.5) is only good for holding the sewer hose, very thin metal, and already holds the spare tire
