I plan to carry an electric wheelchair on a receiver mounted electric lift. The lift weighs 100 lb. and the chairs weigh in the 130 lb. range. So here is the dilemma. I need a 2" receiver with more than 230 lb. capacity. Curt only comes in the 1.25 " size. The basic difference between the hitches is 2 extra side bolts on the Curt requiring drilling. The Torquelift comes in the 2" size. I was going to drill 2 extra holes in the Torquelift to raise the capacity but then i saw a Drawtite hitch identical to the Curt but the capacity stated 200Lb.

So is the Curt really 350? Is the 200 for the car itself no matter which hitch i use?
I'd be curious to know how the Torquelift hitch behaves when a 200Lb man stands on a hitch hauler. With someone watching for flex in the car/hitch attach points. How sturdy does it feel? I bet the ratings are very conservative but I wouldn't want to trash a $4000 chair.
