You could try your wheelchair manufacturer to see if they make one, or a medical supply and sickroom supplies store - they have things like this.


Could also try your VW dealer - many manufacturers have special-order items for facilitating their vehicle's use by persons needing disability accomodation.


Local trailer and RV supply stores might also have - because they have lots of trailer-hitch mounted carrying and rampedwheel-on racks for ATV's and personal watercraft and the like.


Don't forget you are probably also going to be needing a tight-fitting cover, because at 200 lbs this has got to be a powered one, so you don't want it sitting out in the rain and road splash and such.


You can also google following search phrase and find LOTS of websites offering both hand-lifted and powered lifts - most mount off the trailer hitch - wheelchair carrier for car
