Recreational Vehicle Lift
Overview of the AL300RV RV Power Chair and Scooter
Finally, a lift designed specifically for RV's! The
revolutionary Harmar AL300RV Lift expands the places
you can go by transporting your power chair or
scooter behind your recreational vehicle. Standard
features include a drop hitch adapter (up to 26"), a
manual crank backup in case of emergency, and a
license plate mount.
What Makes This Different
This American made lift is reinforced and ready for
the harsh environment of cross country travel. The
heavy-duty AL300RV will lift nearly all power chairs
and scooters and the universal hitch adapter will
fit most RV's. In the case of power failure, the
manual crank located on top of the unit will allow
you to access your scooter or chair.
Why We Like It
No modifications to power chairs or scooters are
required to use this lift. As soon as the lift is
installed, you will be ready to load your mobility
unit and start your trip. Four automatic
self-tensioning retractors make securing your device
a snap and the one-switch operation makes it easy to
raise and lower your lift.

A Hitch Adapter Upgrade is available that will allow
the hitch height to be adjusted to 32". Your lift

Q: Can one lift be moved between
two different vehicles?
A: While it is possible to move a lift from one vehicle to
another, it is not recommended to do so frequently. If two
different vehicles will be used often, we recommend having a
lift installed on each vehicle.
Q: What maintenance must be
performed to keep the lift operating properly?
A: All Harmar Mobility products are designed and tested to
operate flawlessly for years of trouble-free use with very
little maintenance. Please refer to the Owners' Manual for
specific product maintenance schedules.

the existing wiring on my vehicle?
A: No, all Harmar Mobility lifts must be powered by the
supplied electrical harness. The harness has full-length
leads that attach directly to the battery.
Q: The lift is powered by my
vehicle's battery; what if my car looses power?
A: Many Harmar lifts have standard backup systems that allow
them to be moved manually by Harmar Mobility Authorized
Dealers and qualified mechanics such as roadside assistance
technicians. Harmar Mobility recommends that end users
should not attempt to use the manual override feature.

chair or a scooter.

attached to a vehicle to provide for towing or carrying

can be purchased and installed through a local hitch dealer.
Q: How much weight can a vehicle
A: All trailer hitches are divided into distinct classes and
are rated to a specific weight carrying and a weight towing
capacity. The COMBINED weight of the lift and power chair or
scooter must fall under the weight carrying capacity for the
hitch and the vehicle. Your Harmar Mobility Authorized
Dealer can assist you in determining the correct weight for
your particular application.

manufacturer for guidance.

these rear storage areas.
